Shuffle-It Sunday

We missed out on a Throwback Thursday last week, but we’ll add it in this week with Flashback Friday! I almost missed out on Shuffle-It Sunday too (college readings will be the death of me). But, I refuse to fall behind again on this, so let’s get started! I hope you all find something new to listen to, or take a walk down memory lane!

1. Wonder Girls – Be My Baby

Wow! It’s been three years already! I remember when I was singing to this song all the time when it was first released. You can never go wrong with a Wonder Girls’ song. Even though it’ll be hard to see them all together again, especially since one of them is now a mother, I can’t wait to hear another Wonder Girls’ track that won’t let my ears rest!

 

2. Zia – 웃음만 (Just Laugh)

This is a beautiful song, and I hope it gets more attention. Zia has such a beautiful voice.

 

3. DMTN – E.R.

This song definitely pulls at emotions. I think they were too underrated when they were active, and it’s unfortunate that the other members were affected by the decision of one. Being a fan of KPOP in general is tough. I don’t know what’s going on half the time. Anyone know what’s going on with DTMN? If they are still together, and release a new song in the future, I’ll definitely be on the look out for it.

 

4. 2NE1 – Let’s Go Party

I am so sad that 2NE1 is not attending MAMA 2014. YG performances are what I always look forward to. I’m glad Taeyang and G-Dragon will be showing up, but still… For us, the more of YG Family, the better. Anyway, I remember having forgotten about 2NE1 after Lollipop promotions with Big Bang, and then I randomly remembered them one day while I was at my sister’s house on vacation. Let’s Go Party was the song that helped me rediscover them and I’ve been hooked onto the Black Jack wagon ever since.

 

5. Super Junior – Miracle

This is one of my all-time favorite songs from Super Junior, and I think it’ll be hard to wipe it out from its spot. My top 3 are Miracle, It’s You, and then Sorry Sorry. I haven’t played any Super Junior songs as often as these three.

 

6. Super Junior – 너 같은 사람 또 없어 (No Other)

After Hankyung left Super Junior, along with DBSK’s issue, I kind of went on an SM riot by myself (you have to remember I was a naive 15 year-old and my young teenage mind was not ready for this). I didn’t listen to any thing from them for awhile. Then I was doing my usual YouTube browsing and came across this song. I was hooked on again, although it won’t ever be as strong as before, Like I’ve stated many times before, you can’t deny a good song. I do love that the remaining members have had their fill of shit from netizens and the industry though, and are speaking their own minds in public now without much of a care about what others have to say about them, good or bad.

7. EXO-M – Lucky

What do I do?! My iTunes must just want to hear me cry, making me reminisce so much, especially playing a song EXO said was for their fans. It feels so weird to listen to EXO now knowing they’re no longer “one”. I also hate that there is so much negativity going around among fans when we don’t even know what happened, and we never will. Although I might not pay as much attention to EXO as I did before, I’ll always support their music.

 

8. B.A.P. – Good-Bye

Glad to know that it’s not “Good-bye”, but rather “See you later”. This is probably one of my favorite songs from them that’s more on the ballad side. I’m not as into B.A.P as Darice is, but they definitely have a place in my KPOP heart, which knows no end. I don’t think it’ll be long before I’m on the same boat as Darice is with them. 1004 definitely got me closer. I think they’re a talented group and I cannot wait to hear from them again. Hoping they get a good rest so they can come back stronger than ever.

 

9. Tablo ft Jinsil – 나쁘다 (Bad)

I am so glad that Epik High was able to stay together, even though I didn’t really know what was going on. I just knew something was off when Tablo made a solo comeback. I loved it, no doubt, but it’s always better when a group is whole. I get more excited and my feels can sometimes spill over. Jinsil’s voice here caught me by surprise, and hearing it again now makes me wonder why I still haven’t looked her up. She has such a unique voice!

 

10. Lee Seung Hwan ft Jo Kwon – Dunk Shot

Oh, man, this song! Again, found through YouTube browsing. If you haven’t yet heard this song, you have missed out on one of the greatest KPOP songs ever! And I absolutely loved Jo Kwon’s featuring here. It’s a catchy tune, and I hope it grows on many more KPOP fans!

And that’s the end for this week’s Shuffle-It Sunday! I hope you found something new to listen to, or joined me in a walk down memory lane, some being quite recent.

Shuffle-It Sunday

I know I missed Shuffle-It Sunday last week, but to give enough time to finish our Spontaneous Saturday in a part two of Spontaneous Sunday, I’ll be sticking to our original 10 songs. Enjoy the list!

1. Infinite – 3분의 1 (1/3)

 

2. Big Bang – Still Alive

It’s been so long since I last listened to this song! I forgot how much I liked this song. I think this album was after all the issues that Big Bang went through, and they came out winners in the end, so this song hits home so much more. “BIG BANG IS STILL ALIVE!” And I don’t think they’ll be leaving any time soon. They all know they have a strong hold in the music field, no matter how old they get.

3. G-Dragon ft Lydia Paek – R.O.D

G-Dragon’s Coup D’Etat album was just over the top! I loved every single song off of it! If I had to exclude the title songs, then this would be the one at the top. I never really followed Lydia Paek, but this song really got me into her. I loved her rendition of Taeyang’s Eyes, Nose, Lips as well.

4. Wilber Pan ft Zhang Xianzi – 不得不愛 (Cannot Not Love)

I can’t speak Chinese and I only know the commonly heard phrases from songs and dramas. I love this song and I always sing to it when it comes on. Can’t help it; it’s a song that does that to me. I think it’s beautiful.

5. Snow Patrol – What if the Storm Ends

This isn’t the full song, but it was because of this trailer that I immediately went in search of this song. My sister and sister-in-law asked about it too, and since I tend to be really good at finding a song, they asked me. It left a really lasting first impression on me. I knew who Snow Patrol was because I always sing one of their songs when ever I karaoke, but I didn’t really listen to their other music.

6. Ailee – Rainy Day

No other words needed for this song; it was beautiful and I can feel something with it.

7. Bangtan Boys – 하루만 (Just One Day)

I’m so used to BTS going hard in all their songs and being filled with charisma that this slower track threw me for a loop. I also think I talked about this song at the start of our blog, but I can’t be too sure. But anyway, this smooth track gives me some feels that I would rather not have when a majority of the members are younger than me. I’m still adamant about not being a noona fan. Anyway, that was off topic. I love this song. It’s not on my repeat playlist, but it’s definitely a tune I let play through when I occasionally shuffle through my iTunes, like this.

8. B.A.P. – 1004 (Angel)

This song from B.A.P really surprised me. I was not expecting this for their comeback. This is like the in-between for their tracks like One Shot and What are you Doing. It was definitely beautiful, as usual, and it could very well be one of my favorite B.A.P tracks.

9. Pink ft Nate Reuss – Just Give me a Reason

This song surprised me when I realized that I really liked the vocals here. And the beat is nice too. The emotion is very much present here. I wish Pink would sing more songs that relayed her emotions like this.

10. 4Minute –  거울아 거울아  (Mirror Mirror)

There are a lot of songs that seem to surprise me. I think I have a set preference, but sometimes some songs just get you. 4Minute is no exception. I’m not too big on their recent stuff, but when they released songs from HuH to Volume Up, I was in love with them!

Well, we’ve reached our end for this week’s Shuffle-It Sunday! Hope you all found something new to listen to and enjoyed the list this time! Spontaneous Sunday will be going up within the day, so keep on the look out for that!

B.A.P – 어디니? 뭐하니? (Where are You? What are You Doing?)

Woo! Including the posts from yesterday, cut down six songs without adding a new pending review to our list! We’re almost caught up, and I’m having a lot fun going through these songs again. Last one for the morning, and maybe the day, as I have yet to pack for KCON this weekend after work, so I probably won’t have time for another review.

I’m a fan of B.A.P., but not as big as Darice is. She’ll probably kill me for not having memorized all the members yet. I think she was a bit devastated we couldn’t make it to their concert in Chicago back in April, what with the LA Korea Festival and all.

Anyway, here’s our review for B.A.P.’s 어디니? 뭐하니? (Where are You? What are You Doing?).

Surprisingly, I loved this song the moment I heard it. It’s completely different from what B.A.P. usually does and I’m just loving the happy tune. Their voices were softer and lighter in this song, including Yong Guk’s and Zelo’s, and I loved it! I don’t think I’ll be able to stop using the word love for this song.

The music video was adorable and I smiled throughout the entire video. They looked like they had a lot of fun and I can only imagine how much laughter surrounded the set.

Overall score; 9. It was a surprising song. I didn’t think I would like it this much, enough to put on my iPod immediately. It’s still on my favorite list too.

Shuffle It Sunday

Here is this week’s Shuffle It Sunday! Hope you all find something new to listen to, and enjoy the repeats if there are any!

1. Brian Joo ft Valerie – Don’t Tell Me I’m Wrong

 

2. B.A.P – Stop It

This cute image of theirs was such a breath of fresh air and was what really hooked me into becoming a fan of B.A.P.

3. Katy Perry – Wide Awake

 

4. Big Bang – Love Song

It seems like a YG song is a must on all the Shuffle It Sundays.

5. Big Bang – Tell Me Goodbye

Wow, two Big Bang songs in a row! Actually, it happens all the time; if it’s not Big Bang, it’s 2NE1. Speaking of Big Bang, who else is excited for Taeyang’s album (FINALLY!)?

6. EXO – Baby

Hearing Kris’ voice… I’m going to miss the original EXO so much.

7. f(x) – Electric Shock

 

8. Ayumi Hamasaki – Rainy Day

Sorry! I had a hard time finding a full music video, so here’s a snippet.

9. Big Bang – Emotion

Well, this makes three of Big Bang’s songs now. I wonder how many I have in my iTunes?

10. Nelly – Just a Dream

This song! I love it!
