Johanna Kurkela Performs J. Hetfield and L. Ulrich's "Nothing Else Matters"
Siris posted the above, saying, "I like the Metallica original, too, but this, I think, is my favorite rendition of it; I tend to like most of Kurkela's work" — Music on My Mind. I am not now now nor have a ever been a fan of Metallica, perhaps to my discredit, and until now I did not know Johanna Kurkela from Eve, but I like this rendition.
It reminds me strangely of my time in Korea. Whether this is due to some shared cultural affinities among speakers of Ural–Altaic languages or just because all foreigners interpret American culture in similar, somehwat sterilized ways, I do not know. Maybe it's just because Miss Kurkela is slender, pretty, and proper, like most Korean singers.
