I listen to music a lot, like 70% of the day when I’m not with friends or have classes, I listen to music. Of course it’s great with a break and silence now and then, but I can assure you they’re really short breaks. Lately it seems like I never turn of Itunes, it only is when I shut down my laptop. When I’m not playing my own lists, which is like listening to a radio (7000 songs gives that feeling), I listen on HelloKpop or Maerong Radio or surf around YouTube to find new songs. Which Just make’s the amount of songs on my laptop rise.
Oh well, let’s get on with the list shall we?
New Luv: 2Ne1 - Lonely
No one else deserve this spot right now. I’ve blogged a little about this song before, and it’s so beautiful it won’t hurt to do it again. Because 2ne1 is my girls, the #1 female kpop group that I’ll always support and love. There’s just something about them that keeps me attached to them. I love their aggressive style, and powerful ways of singing, but I’m happy to hear a song which really show their talent naturally.
This weeks Kpop: SuJu - What if
This is definitely this weeks kpop song, or better, ballad. After seeing this performance of the ballad, ‘What If” has been replayed and replayed a lot. The more I play it the more I love it. I can’t really explain it why I would fall for this type of song so hard, other than that’s there’s 4 singers with great voices whom I respect a lot that sings it. And it gives me goosebumps. Especially Sungmin‘s parts, the one who comes in last.
This weeks JPop/Rock: Ayumi - Microphone
Ayumi is and will always be my #1 female idol, oh I admire her so much. Shockingly enough I haven’t played her songs in a while, but lately Microphone has been going on repeat. This is in my opinion one of her best “rock” songs, and that pipe organ play in the beginning is such a lovely contrast. Just to sad I couldn’t find a full version of the song on YT.
I kept hearing the intro and the jiggy phrase somewhere in one of the remixes I listened to, it never occurred to me that it was F.Cuz. I can still remember it like it was yesterday when I found their mv for “No one”. I love F.Cuz, I really hope they come back soon. Because I wanna see more of this:
Oh the intro and the first verse is so perfect, and when the chorus break out I melt, but its the second verse and the beat it has that really gets me.
What can I say, I love this guy, I love his voice and I love his dance skills. It took me a while after the release before I listened to this. I don’t know why, I should just have done it right away. There’s so many parts in this song that I love it’s hard for me to comprehend and type right.
Mblaq has been doing really good since debuting in japan, and I love hearing them singing japanese. Although I listen to mostly kpop, japanese is still the language that send chills down my back. They just sound so incredible smooth, well I guess they always have, but smoother. They sound different in a good way at least. And I like how well they have adapted to the japanese music industry.
