Torinos' san, I love singing some Italian songs with Karaoke.

In fact, I sometimes play live music (I am a keyboardist/ONE-MAN BAND) for Club Culturale Italiano's functions.  I also played a couple of times at Rio Rancho's Italian American Association.  We have a few Italian karaoke songs at our home, too.   Plus, lots of Japanese songs (enkas, etc.) as well as Country & Western and 50s and 60s music.

Torinos' san, that is so great that you know Kie-san.
Yes, it would be so great if you could join us for Karaoke. In fact, we are having a Karaoke on May 22. I would love to have you all join us!

Comment by Norio Hayakawa on December 7, 2010 at 12:02pm
Hai, Daniela-san.
Nihongo wa kireina kotoba desu. (Japanese is a pretty language).
Itariago mo kireina kotoba desu, ne. (Italian also is a pretty language, isn't it).
Supeingo mo kiriena kotaba desu, ne. (Spanish also is a pretty language, isn't it).

kireina = pretty, beautiful (adj.)
mo = also, too.

e.g. watashi mo = me too

Yes, Daniela-san, the reason I like to learn Italian is because I sing a few Italian songs....but I do not comprehend the meaning of all the words in the lyrics completely.

Japanese, as you know, is a very phonetic language, just like Spanish or Italian....or even Hawaiian.
basically only five vowels: a, e, i, o, u.
