Last night, I saw on my Twitter account that dandy duo Puffy with Ami Onuki and Yumi Yoshimura（大貫亜美・吉村由美）is celebrating its 20th anniversary with a new album. Good heavens! It's been 2 decades since the ELO-like "Asia no Junshin"（アジアの純真）.
Well, never let it be said that I'm going to miss out on an anniversary regarding Japanese pop music if I can help it. So, here is "Boogie-Woogie No. 5", Puffy's 12th single from September 2000. I think by the turn of the century, the Puffy phenomenon was kinda waning after their first big heyday in the mid-90s with all of those hits and their late-night variety show on TV Asahi, "PA PA PA PA PUFFY"（パパパパパフィー）. However, I do remember this particular song because of this mix of Big Band and rockabilly by creator Tamio Okuda（奥田民生）and for the music video showcasing the ladies in Bowling Night gear and a bunch of guys who looked like they were recruited just off Koen Dori in Shibuya. Of course, there are also lots of goofy choreography to enjoy.
