Fire Flower

This is probably Len's best song (though there are at least two others often considered to be his 'signature' numbers), and in this live performance from the 2011 Sapporo concert – with English subtitles – we can get a feel for just how good a stage presence he has. I think it's an excellent song, and very well suited to Len's lower registers in particular, which we don't get to hear as often as perhaps we should.

It seems strange to write about such things as 'stage presence' about someone who doesn't really exist, at least not in the conventional way, so has no physical presence as such;  but in situations such as this what I said above is so obviously true anyway. Watch this and you'll just have to agree...
