Seriously, I think I saw these guys busking on a pedestrian mall in Perth, Western Australia a decade ago. They were dueling with miniature kotos, and it was one of the most remarkable musical performances I've ever seen.
 

Busking - never knew that word before.  Tks.

Sounds like music for a made-for-TV movie event about a white guy falling in love with a tribal beauty.

Except that this is Japanese and Kung Fu (功夫) is Chinese. Maybe that's not a valid distinction for musical purposes.

The track is on the "Yoshida Bros." CD, but RP has the Vol. II artwork and link back to amazoozits, which does not have this track.

If no one cares, then nevermind...
You are right. ( no one cares, or/and yea, it's the wrong cover?)

Alpha Centauri.

Civ III is also very fun, because you can play a war-free game and just do cultural takeovers by assimilating cities into your collective... I mean, empire.

The original Civ was the first thing to cause me to stay up all night.

Not my dish. Too much orchestration. It needs a "less is more" mentality. As it is it sounds like an Eagles tune - you know, the ones where they try to prove themselves as musicians and wind up sounding gaseous and bombastic. This is bombastic to a T.

I bet the main reason the police keep people away from a plane crash is they don't want anybody walking in and lying down in the crash stuff, then, when somebody comes up, act like they just woke up and go, "What was THAT?!"

Except this really happens whenever a New York City bus is in an accident. There are more people trying to climb aboard than trying to get off--followed closely by the ambulance-chasing lawyers.
