Best Covers: Ane Brun ‘Big in Japan’

 Ane Brun is a Norwegian-born, Sweden-dwelling songwriter who – fun fact – used to tour as one of Peter Gabriel‘s backup singers. She covered Alphaville’s debut single ‘Big in Japan’, the tune climbed to top of the charts in Switzerland, Germany, and Sweden. Oh, and on the super-prestigious Billboard Hot Dance Club Play list.
