The song in the 2nd link is quite good, and I'm very anxious about his cover of "Planetarium". A male version should be very interesting Laughing !

I'm interested in hearing it too (although his pronunciation could use just a little work, I think) he has a good voice. Tongue

@Koda: What's wrong with his pronunciation?...I think it's really good for a non native speaker....

Sometimes you'll hear random singers that cover J-Pop or enka songs. There was a lady a few years ago that did Mika Nakashima's "Yuki no Hana" . Or Korean pop singers do covers of J-pop songs all the time. Those were all translated in to English and Korean though of course. Is this in Japanese?

Wow! this fella kinda cool... the second youtube from 1337rice very awesome. but then when I checked the 1st youtube link, the live kinda bad... I thought his vocal bad or due to youtube's poor Audio, but after I read this article from japantimes. Man! he's really an english speaker coz initially I tot he is Japanese that only looks like Caucasian... but fact is that know nothing bout Japan or even Japanese... when 1st works introduce from him was totally english songs and only months later he back after hardcore Japanese study~ cool! he work very hard... no wonder the live seems bit weird, but come on! he not Japanese native-speaker~ this is awesome edi~ Boogie

His previous sales quite good as well and have a not-bad reputation... but strange.. why there no his entry in wikipedia? Giggle

どんなときも。is sung by 槇原敬之 (Makihara Noriyuki), this is just a cover....just to let you guys knows...

The live isn't too bad...in my opinion...

DUNCAN'S DIVAS cover sounds weird, especially I'm used to listening to the original ballad...making it into punk rock is such a change that I won't easily accept

I agree. but it isn't a BAD cover, just...a bit out there for a song like planetarium (which, roughly translated means I hope they don't do it AGAIN Tongue)
