in retrospect...

I guess I probably should not have mentioned the Bowie song because it clearly does not have the tune I'm talking about-- it only hints at it. And because it only hints at it, I may have confused the reader base here. I'm not referring to the pentatonic "sound" or that stereotypical 'oriental' music aesthetic. I am talking about the specific tune, and I'm sure it's a specific tune rather than a "sound." It's obviously in "Turning Japanese" and "Kung Fu Fighting". Surely we can agree that the snippets featured in these tracks are the same song, right?

(Well, it seems that we're getting somewhere with this. But still, maybe it's worth getting Cecil involved, huh?)
