Before Psy and K-Pop took over the world, there was Kyu Sakamoto – one of Japan’s brightest international stars, and the first Asian singer to have a number one hit on the Billboard Hot 100.

The breakthrough hit was this one, called “Sukiyaki” and it reached number one in the US in June, 1963- and is still number one in our books!

Music Minute: Billy Fury – “A Wondrous Place” (1960 Recording)



This artist we’re bringing to you today has a wondrous sensibility to style and passion, cultivating his own hip pulse alongside Elvis himself.  Rockabilly style sensationalism must be in the air, because we’re tripping off of this pretty-boys badass look.

Born 1940 to the name Ronald William Wycherley in Liverpool, England, where winning a talent show as a kid would lead to a life showcasing the goods he was born with.  Born with an abundance of talent and a weak heart, he was destined to leave behind a big handprint.

Wycherley fronted his own group in 1955, but simultaneously worked full-time on a tugboat and later as a stevedore. By 1958 had started composing his own songs.  When he was signed he was such an immediate success, new management would rename him ‘Billy Fury’.

However, his early sexual and provocative stage performances received censure, and he was forced to tone them down.  But we have to attest, the world was changing in a big way, and sex is exactly what people wanted!

With a whiney twang, and a pouty quality to his style of sound, he is a forgotten idol of the changing pop culture through the 1950s.

Having spent decades making career choices based on health, and having to pass on many opportunities and tours, ‘Billy’ would be found on his hotel room floor in 1983.
