  1. I find it hard to believe that you would leave out 1963 hit “Sukiyaki” by Kyu Sakamoto sung in Japanese. A far more beautiful whistle in the middle of the song than most of what you have listed.

  3. If you want something off the beaten path…

    Dead South- In Hell I’ll Be in Good Company
    Big Wild- Hey Mami
