So never mind the darkness
We still can find a way
‘Cause nothin’ lasts forever
Even cold November rain
Not much of rain this Novemeber over here, but last weekend we had a horrible fog. Musically – I have a small harvest as I started to go one song after another from the list of 1001 Songs You Must Hear Before You Die. Lots of them are alredy known to me (or most of the people, I guess) but it’s always great to listen to some new stuff. I side-eyed Nancy Boy though so much, because Placebo has handful of other better songs, so why put there a song from their first album? Eh, whatever, I’m glad they made it anyway.
Did anything happen in Korean music lately? Kim Seonggyu finally released the full album and for few minutes I pondered over unhealthy thought of ordering it. But since I’m waiting for dollar to drop to order SKKS
OST, I really can’t now. What about the songs? Woolliment called the music here as “hybrid”, and before I listened to it, I had slightly skeptical attitude, but now I think it suits the album. I liked especially 61 seconds
, video in cinematography was standard Woollim quality – a cosmic one. L can’t act though. Period. 41 Days
is also a nice song, but this chorus in Shine
still bothers me and I can’t seem to move over it. Meaning – this song won’t be on my list any time soon. I was surprised-nonsurprised to hear regular instrumental intro to the album as it is a fixed part on any Infinite album.
Ryeowook tweets about KRY concert in Japan and that makes me overly frustrated. I demand decent fancams or DVD release maybe. Kyuhyun released a song for The Great Seer
series, but – to borrow my friend Viande’s words – the song is boring. I don’t have any higher hopes for Yesung upcoming song, so… Looks like only Ryewook atually does something with his voice, moving smoothly from low notes to his high pitch. Yesung is comfortable in his safe zone, Kyuhyun bored. Let’s hope for an album so… actually nevermind, let’s pray for the album anyway.
New album of Peppertones disappointed me horribly. It was just bland, without any spark, not even one good song that I could listen to for at least a month. It’s just Peppertones, but without the pepper.
released another japanese song (If You Want
). I wonder why SMEnt keeps her in their dungeons and lets her sing japanese songs because she’d easily knock down all them Juniels and IUs. What a waste!
And that comes from me who doesn’t follow girl singers or girl groups at all (maybe keeping an eye on Bubble Sisters, Spica or Glam a bit and Ali). 2BiC
also released a song that reminds me a bit of 4Men yet without the hysterics.
also came back with a slow bossa nova feeling album, perfect for an autumn evening.
I don’t want to talk about the horrible MV and song of LedApple. I’m totally disappointed.
For those who want the full list, it’s under the spoiler, because, well – it’s 1001 titles.
