sorry if this has been posted already, but i heard dexter wrote a song for puffy, which is named "Tokyo, I'm On My Way" and will be released on May 27 or something.

i found the video on Youtube

here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zaNPGWfDIiA&search=puffy%20tokyo)

i think it sounds kinda like offspring. i mean, i believe this is written by Dexter.
and i think this song is kinda cute, isnt it?
the middle part was kinda surprising though. i didnt know dexter could think of that kind of melody :)

anyway, i want to hear what you guys think :)

Besides the cheesy lyrics sung by those annoying Asain chicks, that was actually a pretty skankin' ska song.

I doubt he wrote it or composed it or whatever, but even if he didn't, the song was okay. Had a slightly Offspring-style sound to it, yeah.

It was cool! I would like to hear it from Dexter's voice. I don't know why...it was funny!! :D it has enough offspring sound.

Didn't Dexter talk about Puffy Amiyumi in a journal?

yeah, they ruined the song. But why do you think Dexter wrote that?

oh, because it was said so in some japanese articles.
i can show you the articles, but i dont think you guys are able to read japanese...

Well near the end it kinda reminded me of the offspring but I don't think he wrote that...

Puffy AmiYumi, not Sean "Puffy" Combs. Got it.

Not all the songs Dexter has written for other people sound like the Offspring. But it sure would be nice to hear about things like this on Offspring.com...

Anyway, the song is wicked cute. And it does sound like something Dexter might write--like "Amino Man" by The Aquabats! does, even though it's clearly a The Aquabats! song.

Haha, my thoughts exactly! I had no idea Puffy was an actual band. I thought it was just for the toon...Well, anyway, I thought the song was okay, I guess. And it definitely sounding Offspringy at the end.

I love the fact that the Asian chicks' lips don't match up with the words.


EDIT: and how sometimes i catch them singing: "Tokyo, I'm on my way, I'm going to be in Rove"

if the offspring did it, it could be good. however, it's totally ruined by those two asian chicks. there's no way the offspring wrote it, but based on the bass line and some of the guitarwork, it sounds possible. I really doubt it.

Thanks Motacos! I found this thred now... :o

Dexter wrote this song, its true.

Motacos, do you like this song? really? oh no! i do not like it so much.
I really like (Can't Get My) Head Around You better than Tokyo I'm On My Way :p
X-TRAIL's TV commercial is very cool! I want to show you this "CM".

What's the 'reputation' of this band anyway? Do they have a Rock status, or MTV status... I mean.. you know.

I've checked more of their vids, I like their style.

I doubt it's a song he wrote for himself to record. It sounds like he wrote it expressly for Puffy AmiYumi. WHich is pretty darn cool.
