David Sylvian & Ryuichi Sakamoto - Forbidden Colours

It's hard to find a more beautiful song than "Forbidden Colours", Ryuichi Sakamoto (of Yellow Magic Orchestra) and David Sylvian's (of Japan) theme song for the soundtrack to the 1983 film Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence. Sakamoto wrote the melody and Sylvian the lyrics, and it's simply one of the most perfect collaborations I've heard, not forgetting pairings like Lennon/McCartney, Holland/Dozier/Holland, Jagger/Richards, Bacharach/David, Morrissey/Marr, etc. "Forbidden Colours" is one of my all time favourites, almost unearthly and certainly surreal in its perfect beauty.

Watch and listen
