Tamio Okuda sings Umi Eto

This is from 2000, I guess, but check it out if you haven't seen it (and I'll bet a lot of you haven't):

I've seen other videos of him singing this song, and it just doesn't sound right to me. When PUFFY sings it, it sounds total punk. Tamio's too laid back for this song. He's too mellow.

The second song he sings sounds more like his own style... I'm guessing because it is.

One day I'll post the video of him singing "Mother" acoustic live in front of 60,000 people - that's probably my favorite Tamio Okuda performance of a PUFFY song. Now if only I could find it again...
