"The Good Times We Had" remix featuring Peter, Paul & Mary and Japanese cover group TUK. Song written by Noel Paul Stookey; remix produced by Tom Barry.
The audio of the TUK cover was recorded live outdoors, so apologies if the quality isn't quite up to snuff.
In case you're wondering, Rodger Swan was teaching English at a high school in Iwate, Japan when he died suddenly of acute pancreatitis in January 2010. He was only 23. This video reflects his students' respect and admiration for their "sensei" (teacher). Given the popularity of his V-log, he amassed a huge following on YouTube where he shared his passion for Japan, its people and culture. I thought the song reflected the camaraderie and friendship all of us enjoyed.
