1. The melody, which seemed relatively innocuous on first hearing, went deeper and deeper the more I listened to it. Eventually it became little short of compulsive, and I find that intriguing.
2. The singer’s voice is quite remarkable. Not only does she hit every note of a complex tune with perfect intonation, but the high tone expected of a Chinese woman takes on a silky, creamy quality when she gets down into the lower register. It could almost be a Belgian white chocolate, and you know how partial I am to Belgian chocolates.
So that’s why, plus the fact that it has goldfish in it. And a very, very big Buddha (the fat Chinese type, not the thin Indian type.) And a beautiful girl dressed in white. And as I’ve been saying for some time now:
If the priestess won’t come to JJ, JJ must go to the priestess.
