Music Dose~ Canto. Edition

Today I want to dedicate this post to one of my favorite cantonese singers- Stephy Tang. Her voice just has a very appealing grab for me, making her one of my all time favorites- not to mention her songs are 99% good. The song I want to recommend is called 你好嗎?= How are you? But it actually has a different meaning. The first two characters and the last can be broken up with the first two meaning ‘You are good”, and the last character changing the tone to a question. So it actually carries the meaning of “How are you good?”. Clever word play right? It talks about how even though she have had some desirable suitors, she still is unable to move on from her ex, and she is asking herself “what is so great about you that is making me linger in the past”- hens the title of this song. I love love love this song so please check it out down below if you haven’t~

Music Dose~ Strangeness edition

The song I want to recommend today is destiny’s child’s Cater 2 U. Wow wow this song has a nice r&b flow, but the thing is, the lyrics are kind of.. demeaning? It’s basically a woman saying she’d do anything for her man (foot rub, cook dinner, etc) Idk maybe I am just too sensitiveXDD But nonetheless, nice song! Please check it out down below~

Music Dose~ Rainy Day edition

On rainy days, what are songs would you listen to? For me personally, I’d do ballads. I LOVE ballads any other time of day but especially when it’s raining out and I want to stay inside, I would listen to some sad calming ballads. The song I want to introduce today is by Kim Jaejoong- I said I’m sorry. This song describes how regretful he felt after the girl proposed the breakup- how he should’ve treated her better, and the bitter response of saying how her new guy does not suit her as well as him. A song filled with agonizing regret. Please check this song out!~

Music Dose~ Fairytale Edition 2

The song I want to recommend today is interesting a song that fit well within the fairytale theme I put up yesterdayXD Another song by EXO, Miracles in December. Apparently this came out with their christmas album? Even though the lyrics have nothing to really do with Christmas, except the fact that in the mv they seem to be filming in the winter.. The mv also had not-so-subtle ads for nature republic lol. This song I feel is made for Chen’s voice, it fits so well with the song it kinda killed me, but I loved it when Baekhyun came in with that last chorus opening, adding a nice twist towards the end. But expression wise- I’m really digging D.O’s monolooking face, if that makes any sense. Very beautifully sung, I declare myself an exotic! Hopefully the next song wouldn’t be EXO’s again:p

Anyways please check out this song!~

Music Dose~ Fairytale Edition

Today when I was shuffling my ipod, a long forgotten favorite came on. This song is pretty hard to find, located in Rainie Yang’s second album. I find the lyrics and melody very soothing and touching. “I dont need a prince, I just hope you would understand”. Reflects on a girl’s so called fairytale fantasies getting thrown aside because she met someone better in real life. Idk maybe I’m in a sensitive mood but this song really stroke a chord tonight~ Please check it out if you haven’t already!

失戀的睡美人- 楊丞琳

 

Music Dose~ Alien Edition

The song that has been on repeat on my ipod for the past day and a half is none other than Overdose by the rising boy band- EXO: boys from another planet a.k.a alien editionXDD I never paid close attention to EXO before, with these new kpop groups coming out, it can be tiring to follow all of them. Anyways, the reason why they got my attention was because I began watching this new korean variety show called Roommate- which Chanyeol from EXO is in. Obviously he left a good impression on me, so then of course I had to look up his band in return and ran into their new song! It’s quite a controversial day to to uploading this post since one of the member apparently wants out of their contract with SM. I’m beginning to think I’m cursed because every group I like seem to breakup: first with DBSK now with EXO. STOP IT

Here is Overdose~ Please have a listen! Watching the video while listening to the song is like a party to all your senses lol

 

Music Dose~ American Version

Ariana Grande’s Almost is Never Enough was my jam for the longest time, today it suddenly came back into my mind as I was trying update this blog. I heard Ariana and Nate hooked up after this song too, no wonder why their live performances always had sparks flying lol.

 

Music Dose~ 陳勢安-天后

This song is my new jam lately, I know it’s not a super recent song, but I just downloaded it lately and it’s been playing in loops. No shame.

陳勢安-天后

Andrew Chen’s voice is pretty unique, I wouldn’t say I’m in love with it, but it’s a nice change from the generic voices that modern singers tend to sport nowadays. All in all, a really good song! Apparently he is more recognized just for this song instead of him as a singer, which is pretty pitifulDX

Music dose~ Impress me

This song really impressed me and kind of changed bii’s image in my mind. I kind of have a mini grudge towards him after not being able to get his signature after his fansigning haha. So here’s the song:

Bii-轉身之後

Pretty touching song. But the grudge is still thereXDD

Daily Music Dose~ “First-time lovers”~

I am not sure if this is going to turn into something permanent or what, but for the meantime the plan is to post some kind of recommendation I personally grew fond of during my daily life. Now let’s get on to the rec. list!!!~

Today I will introduce 3 main songs for the purpose of this post as a kick-off for this blog~ Today’s theme is “Songs for first-time lovers”- ahh first love, what’s the image that come in your mind when you think about those words? Spring? Walking under freshly bloomed cherry blossoms? Or just a trip to the amusement park? For me, what defines “first love” is the atmosphere, the pure and innocent (at times naive) aura that all new couples have towering over them~I will introduce three songs that reminds me of that feeling down below~

1.) What I want to do once I have a lover- G.Na&Rain

-This is describing from a guy and girl’s perspective of how they each respectively look forward to doing with their future lovers~ I especially like when their voices joined together at the end, it’s a clever way of saying ultimately, both just want to be loved in the relationship despite their different expectationsXD

2.) 아저씨 (Feat. 제이레빗)- J.Rabbit

-This is a very fresh song for me since I just heard it this morning and fell in love with it! The topic is about a teenage falling in love with an “ahjussi”- uncle. The rapping part of the song is done by the ahjussi- saying they are impossible since the age gap would forbid them to have common interest/topics, definitely worth checking out!~

3.) 처음 사랑하는 연인들을 위해 (반말송)

-Ahhh the last spot on this list was hard for me to choose, but I ultimately went with my forever bias goguma couple!!!~ a.k.a yongseo couple. This song is written more tailored to their relationship especially with the banmal points empathized multiple times during the song, but the bigger picture is just one lover wants to other one to draw closer, so they can develop a more intimate and “real” relationship. I love this song! Also check out the live version of this song if you can~ I think I might even make another post dedicated this couple in the future kekekeke.
