Music, music, music

I’ll be updating this page periodically to include music that’s piquing my interest at the moment. What’s that you say? Some of this music is old? Well, so am I. ๐Ÿ˜›

 

Jay Park‘s “Joah” is one of my all-time favorite songs. Can’t get the melody out of my mind…๐Ÿ”ป

๐Ÿ”˜๐Ÿ”˜๐Ÿ”˜

If I had to pick one BTS song that I love more than any other, it’d be “Danger” Why? The lyrics, vocals and unforgettable hook make it a perfect song. The music video is a bonus, with its crisp choreography.

๐Ÿ”˜๐Ÿ”˜๐Ÿ”˜

True story: I was listening to G-Dragon‘s “Crooked” in the car and apparently I was speeding just a bit (’cause I didn’t see the sign that was hidden behind overgrown foliage) and got stopped by a very nice police officer who turned out to be a K-Pop fan and let me go with a warning to slow down and said I had great taste in music but to be more cautious. And, yes, this song leaves me breathless and talking in run-on sentences. The. End!๐Ÿ”ป

๐Ÿ”˜๐Ÿ”˜๐Ÿ”˜

It’s Raining” is my favorite Rain (๋น„) video:๐Ÿ”ป

๐Ÿ”˜๐Ÿ”˜๐Ÿ”˜

2PM was always better with Jay Park in it. Most KPop fans know that he was kicked out of the group after some negative comments (he had made about Korea on his personal Myspace page) came to light. This is a good reminder that nothing you say on social media is actually private. Park landed on his feet and has become the first Asian American to be signed to Jay-Z’s management company, Roc Nation, whose roster also includes Rihanna and Shakira. Anyhow…Here’s a classic 2PM song:ย “Again and Again.”

๐Ÿ”˜๐Ÿ”˜๐Ÿ”˜

I ย knew that Kim Soo-Hyunย was a phenomenal actor, but I had no idea he could sing. Wow! Here he is singing “The One and Only” from the soundtrack of the “Moon that Embraces the Sun.”๐Ÿ”ป

๐Ÿ”˜๐Ÿ”˜๐Ÿ”˜

I really like this video by K.Will. The first time I saw it, I thought it was going to have a โ€œSixth Senseโ€ kind of ending. The plot twist surprised me! You donโ€™t have to understand Korean to follow the plot line. If youโ€™ve got about 4 minutes to spare, watch this and let me know if you guessed the ending. But donโ€™t spoil it for the others. ๐Ÿ˜‰ (This video also helped launchย Seo In Guk‘s acting career.)๐Ÿ”ป

๐Ÿ”˜๐Ÿ”˜๐Ÿ”˜

Before Sean O’Pry (the male model in Taylor Swift‘s “Blank Space” video), there wasย Spanish actor Daniel Gonzรกlez, who playsย Gwen Stefani‘s (boyfriend and) ex-boyfriend inย “Cool. This lush music video tells the story of Stefani’s real-life relationship with her No Doubt bandmate Tony Kanal. The two dated, broke up, went on to marry other people and remained the best of friends. Interesting tidbit:ย Gonzรกlez’s girlfriend in the video is played byย Erin Lokitz, who at the time was dating Kanal. (The two have since married.)๐Ÿ”ป

๐Ÿ”˜๐Ÿ”˜๐Ÿ”˜

Natalie Imbruglia‘s “Torn.”๐Ÿ”ป

๐Ÿ”˜๐Ÿ”˜๐Ÿ”˜

I like Kyuhyun‘s music video moreso than the song itself. Still, “A Million Pieces” is very pretty and I got more than a little invested in the couple’s adorable romance, which has a heartbreaking ending … ๐Ÿ™ K-Drama fans will recognize the love interest as Go Ara from “Answer Me 1994.”๐Ÿ”ป

๐Ÿ”˜๐Ÿ”˜๐Ÿ”˜

Taylor Swift‘s “Blank Space” is epic. That is all.๐Ÿ”ป

๐Ÿ”˜๐Ÿ”˜๐Ÿ”˜

One of my favorite Super Junior songs: “Sorry, Sorry” (performed during their mullet phase) :P๐Ÿ”ป

๐Ÿ”˜๐Ÿ”˜๐Ÿ”˜

Taylor’s Swift‘s “Shake It Off.” I can’t stop, won’t stop moving…๐Ÿ”ป

๐Ÿ”˜๐Ÿ”˜๐Ÿ”˜

I saw a pint-sized band of 9- and 11-year-olds called LiveWireย perform “Everybody Talks” recently and they did a great job. Here’s the originalย by the Neon Trees. I’m not a fan of this video, so I tend to not watch it so much as just listen to the music. Yeah. I’m old:๐Ÿ”ป

๐Ÿ”˜๐Ÿ”˜๐Ÿ”˜

I remember hearing Marty Casey (of the Lovehammers) do a nice take of “Mr. Brightside.” The original by the Killers is pretty fantastic:๐Ÿ”ป

๐Ÿ”˜๐Ÿ”˜๐Ÿ”˜

I still like everything about PSY‘s “Gangnam Style“:๐Ÿ”ป

๐Ÿ”˜๐Ÿ”˜๐Ÿ”˜

I’ve always liked the song “Runaway Train” by Soul Asylum. Dave Pirner never sounded better. This video, which deals with child abuse, is difficult for me to watch at times. Photos of real-life missing children were interspersed throughout the video.ย Some were found alive. Othersย had been murdered.๐Ÿ”ป

๐Ÿ”˜๐Ÿ”˜๐Ÿ”˜

Take That‘s “I Want You Back.” Yeah, I like it.๐Ÿ”ป

    “Joah” is one of my favorite songs ever, not just my favorite K-pop song. It’s perfect in every way. Jay Park fighting!

    Rain at his finest. DAMN!

    This is my favorite 2PM song too. To be fair to the boys, they wanted Jay to remain in the group and so did he but JYP their manager pushed him out. He was the leader of the group and I think they all felt horrible about what happened to him. They are all doing well but Jay’s career is really rising and he has the chance to break in the Western mainstream market thanks to Jay Z and the fact that he speaks fluent English.
