[8 Days Until Christmas] Countdown to Christmas…K-Pop!

Edit: I’m so sorry guys…I accidentally scheduled this post on the Wednesday of next week (the 24th) instead of the 17th (The previous post was actually created on the 16th…Wordpress has weird time stamps). So here it is…a day late, though…

Boyfriend_Obsession_Album_Cover

An honourable mention goes to Boyfriend for ‘Obsession’…while it didn’t make it on the list, this really was an amazing release and I had a hard time deciding whether or not to put it on.

Today’s post is about my 8 Favourite K-Pop songs of 2014! Can’t do favourites without putting some K-Pop in there…

1) Eyes, Nose, Lips-Taeyang: Many of you probably expected this…it was pretty popular. And it is my favourite K-Pop release of 2014. Tablo’s English cover of it was also awesome.

2) Danger-BTS: This song was seriously addictive (I still play it, even now). Plus, that amazing dance…? I still can’t forget it. I thought it was definitely one of the best releases of the year.

3) Singing Got Better-Ailee: I really liked the MV for this song, and her vocals are just so powerful…plus, the song lyrics really got to me. This song definitely has a place in my heart.

4) Angel (1004)-B.A.P: The lyrics for this song, the MV and that creative use of ‘1004’…I really loved not only this song, but this entire album.

5) Error-VIXX: The MV for this song really got to me, along with the lyrics…it literally brought me to tears. That makes it not only a favourite, but also a memorable release of 2014. I will never get tired of that MV.

6) Overdose-EXO: I really liked this song…much better than ‘Wolf’, in my opinion. Catchy with a nice dance, plus the album was pretty cool, too.

7) I’m In Love-Secret: Their concept this time was a little different than usual, but I really liked it. This song was stuck in my head for a while after its release, and still sneaks in there sometimes.

8) Evanesce-Super Junior: I made a post about this song a little while back…but it has become one of my favourite releases of 2014. I just can’t stop listening to it!

So there you have it…my 8 favourite K-Pop releases of the year.

G-Dragon X Taeyang “Good Boy”

Hi everyone!

gd-taeyang-good-boy

So…this song has been stuck in my head for the past little while. I admit that, at first, I didn’t really like it all that much…but then I listened to it a few more times, watched the dance practice, watched a few more lives…and it was over for me.

Although, even the first time I listened to it, I loved the sound of GD’s voice at the very beginning.

I decided to look up the English lyrics, though, and they surprised me a little. It was pretty much what I expected at first, that whole thing about girls practically lining up for them.

But then it gets to:

“I don’t play play play, I won’t play with you” and I thought, “Okay…this is taking a bit of a different turn…?”

By the time it got to this verse: “Everyday fresh clothes and I’m unexpectedly really shy…” I actually thought the lyrics were a little adorable.

And then I read the part about him being the prince on a white horse and I laughed a little.

Basically…the song lyrics aren’t really what I expected. At least now I understand the title, I guess.

Good job GD and Taeyang…they always manage to get me. Every. Single. Time.

Plus, the song also has a very cool dance…which pretty much gets me every time.

Side note: They both look great in the video…I especially like Taeyang’s hair. G-Dragon’s hair, on the other hand is…well, it’s certainly interesting. Although I guess I shouldn’t have expected anything less from GD. The fact that it’s fluorescent in some parts of the MV certainly get your attention.

Inspired: Too Much Of Heaven

Tablo

“I’ve been told one day you’ll know too much of heaven’s a sin.” (Tablo X Taeyang-Eyes, Nose, Lips Cover)

When I first heard the original by Taeyang, I fell totally in love. I kept it on replay for days and days, and never got tired of it. I still love hearing it even now. Then Tablo’s cover came out, and his lyrics were just undeniably heart-breaking. I love both versions, but this specific lyric just really got to me. That and this one, actually…

“It’s time to sever my brain from my heart and soul…my knees are burnin’ hot, but God is cold.”

Yet another song I can’t get tired of. I’m sure that, at one point in their lives, everyone will be able to relate to this…life has its ups and downs, right?

Anyways, here’s a lyric from the original to finish today’s post off:

“Why am I fool, why can’t I forget you? You’re already gone.” (Taeyang-Eyes, Nose, Lips)
