Music that puts a big grin on my face. 🙂 Both groups look SO darned happy performing.
Highlight – Plz Don’t Cry/ 얼굴 찌푸리지 말아요
Winner – Really Really ~ My jam these days (I really, really want to learn the dance, LOL!). 널 좋아해!
I don’t know why it is but I often like to talk about music when I’m feeling good. It’s just that I very seldom get to do that these days. No-one to talk with, sad as it is.
The thing is, I’ve been listening to kpop as long as I’ve been watching kdramas. There’s just something about a good kpop tune that gets to me, every single time. I think it’s because the songs resemble those I grew up with and loved. I’ll probably date myself here but I more or less stopped listening to contemporary western music around mid 90’s. The music styles didn’t appeal to me and I never got past that. I haven’t got a clue what’s ‘current’ these days and no interest in finding out either.
I still needed my fix so I started going backwards in time. I love 60’s Brit pop, there’s just so many great songs from that era, songs that you can sing along with.^^ I have a thing for 40’s swing and the silken voiced crooners, legendary jazz singers like Ella Fizgerald, Billie Holliday, Dinah Wahington and Nina Simone, to name a fiew and there is even loads of music from the 50’s I like a lot. My favorite classical period is baroque, e.g Stabat Mater by Pergolesi always, always makes me cry, it’s so freaking beautiful. Well, my musical journey through time finally ended in Early Music, probably because I used to sing Gregorian chant. Sadly some real life issues made me put that on hold, among other things I had to do without, but I am going to get back to it. One of these days.
So, basically I’ve never been able to commit to just one type of music or favor just one particular group/artist. 🙂 I’ve never been a proper FAN of anyone either. It’s always been music/song that comes first, who sings/performs is secondary. If the piece does not grab me, I won’t listen to it, period.
Oops, I went somewhat off tanget there. I better chanage the topic to something more fitting. 😀
