I’m finally on schedule for this, after having been off for the past few weeks. Enjoy the list and hope you find something new to listen to!
1. Aaron Yan – 這不是我 (That’s Not Me)
I’m not a huge fan of the drama this song is used in, but I love this song! And there’s no doubt that Aaron brings back my preteen memories with Fahrenheit.
2. Mad Clown ft Soyu – 착해 빠졌어 (Stupid Love)
I fell in love with this song on the first listen. I also noticed that Soyu has a really nice voice as well, and that Hyorin isn’t the only amazing vocalist in the group.
3. 2NE1 – Can’t Nobody (Eng. Ver.)
Hey, Will.I.Am, wasn’t there supposed to be an American album released from them? I know they featured on his album, but still… My hopes were up high when I found out they were working with him.
4. Yumi Shizukusa – 花篝り (Hana Kagari)
I’ve recently gotten into a JPOP phase, and hearing this song makes me happy for some reason. It’s definitely an impressive song. I had it on repeat when I first heard it.
5. Utada Hikaru – Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence (FYI)
And it seems as though even iTunes knows I’m on a JPOP rampage. Here’s to one of the most legendary JPOP singers to this day, Utada Hikaru. Most people who are into JPOP will recognize her name immediately. She was up there during my siblings’ KPOP phase as well.
6. Taeyang – 새벽한시 (1AM)
Touching on some more recent territory with this song. I had a recent review of this song, so I’m not going to say much about it here, except that I’m still moving along to the beat.
7. IU – 잔혹동화 (Cruel Fairy Tale)
I wish IU would sing another song like this. I love the opening and I love her vocals for this song. I think she has a very versatile voice that can adapt to whatever song category there is. I don’t listen to her title songs much after the first listen, but that’s all only because of my taste in music.
8. MBLAQ – 그대여 (Baby)
This song comes off of the sole KPOP album I own from my 15+ years of being a KPOP fan. This was before I had an iPod, so there really was no other option for me if I wanted to legally support my favorite groups. The chorus is beautiful for this song.
9. Taylor Swift – Better than Revenge
This is a really addicting tune. I don’t dig much of T.Swift’s new stuff, but I will always love these older songs.
10. f(x) – 피노키오 (Danger)
Oh, Luna’s vocals! And this song is like a mix of all sorts of concepts. It’s sexy, but in a cute way. And SM, get your s*** together! You are the only company that would have rumors of groups breaking up multiple times within a year, and at this point, fans have no confidence in those rumors being false. AND, you need to start taking better care of f(x) to begin with. Are their fans still seriously without a confirmed fandom name? Better not get one out for Red Velvet first or you’ll feel the wrath of f(x) fans soon enough.
And, although a bit uncalled for maybe, but those are my sincere thoughts, that is the end of this week’s Shuffle-It Sunday! I hope you found a song you liked, and come back again next week!
