–My own vote is for Anita Mui, Deborah Harry, Janet Khiew, Liza Minnelli, Marlene Dietrich, Miho Nakayama, Miki Imai, Nico, Patsy Kensit, Sandrine Kiberlain, and Yoko Minamino.

I vote for Anita Mui, Marlene Dietrich, and Sandrine Kiberlain because I like their acting. I vote for Deborah Harry, Janet Khiew, Liza Minnelli, Miho Nakayama, Miki Imai, Nico, and Patsy Kensit because I like their songs. I vote for Yoko Minamino because I like both her acting and her songs.

–I’m a little bit surprised that Hiroko Yakushimaru got zero vote, because I think her voice is very sweet. I like her voice and the song KATARI TSUGU AINI very much. I’m very glad that this song is available in Youtube, because my cassette tape containing this song has beeen damaged by fungi.

I’m not sure if Hiroko is a good actress or not. As for her films, I have seen THE TERRIBLE COUPLE (1980, Shinji Somai, A-), TWINKLE (1992, Joji Matsuoka, A-), and ALWAYS – SUNSET ON THIRD STREET (2005, Takashi Yamazaki, C+).

–I like Janet Khiew very much. One song of her that I love is THE
BORROWERS OF THE BANK OF AGRICULTURE (ลูกหนี้ธ.ก.ส.).

You can listen to this song here:

This is the lyrics of the song translated by me:

BOA Bank of Agriculture
We, the farmers, can depend on it
We can get a mortgage on our own land and rice field
So that we can get the money flow

To be in debt is an ordinary thing
It’s not a shame at all to have debts
We still visit each other
We don’t look down on those who have debts
Look around you, they are all the borrowers of BOA

Thank you Thank you Thank you BOA
You are the saint You are the saviour You are so kind You are noble
Every member of the poor
You can borrow as much as you can
Contact BOA, so that it can help us

BOA Bank of Agriculture
Very reliable bank
This bank is always there for us
Whenever we are broke
We use our title deed as collateral
Whenever we have money
We pay our debts to BOA

–Miki Imai is one of my most favorite singers of all time.
