I have to confess that in the past few days, I’ve been revisiting Cause I’m a God Girl because of a reupload on YouTube. And I’m loving it a whole bunch. Ok, I’m still not into the BTOB member’s part, because it’s absolute shit and I breaks the song too much, but the chorus is too damn catchy. So yeah, sorry Hyuna
I have to face the fact I don’t have time to post everything I want to anymore. Even when I had all the time in the world to do so, I still didn’t have time to really do so.
I’m still going to check the chart though because I still lose a few release now and then if I don’t. But I won’t post it here anymore. Anyway, you can access Instiz Chart easily (you go here, then you click on the “주간 누적” [Weekly Cumulative] tab – the left one – on the top left corner) and they provide, most of the time, a link to listen to the song on YouTube. So there. If you’re curious, do that.
That being said, I’ll still do my monthly playlist, even if no one care. It’s a way for me to keep track of my music and bring it with me wherever I go. Both on YouTube and on 8tracks, even though it’s getting more and more not the best outlet to listen to playlist. Thing is, 1. I don’t want to pay for Spotify, 2. they don’t have everything so f**k them.
So, yeah, basically, I’ll get to it soon, posting the playlist from… more than a year ago ahaha
And I might do a review of the latest Epik High album if I feel like I can spare the time, because I love these uncles <3
01. Hyorin, Kisum – Fruity (prod. Groovyroom)
02. Mamamoo – Yes I Am
03. iT’s – Show Time
04. Produce 101 – Super Hot
05. CSP – Huahin (feat. Kang Min Hee of Miss $)
06. Crush – Outside (feat. Beenzino)
07. Heize – Don’t Know You
08. Knock – Open Up
09. Chung Ha – Why Don’t You Know (feat. Nucksal)
10. Boa – Camo
11. Sons of People – Never
12. Masterclass – D
13. Masterclass – G
Is there a song in this playlist that is not great? I don’t think so.
I’m addicted to Fruity even though it’s a song that advertise some kind of Lipton drink, I don’t care, I’m grooving to it all day every day.
I finally got through Produce 101 season 2 and I’m happy I did. There was some great songs in that season.
The MV for Outside and Don’t Know You are pretty funny and original, check them out.
01. PSY – I Luv It
02. iKON – B-Day
03. PSY – New Face
04. Twice – Signal
05. Yoon Do Hyun – Trip
06. Seventeen – Don’t Wanna Cry
07. VIXX – Shangri-La
08. LambC – Enee Menee Minee Mo
09. Henry – Real Love (acoustic ver.)
Psy is back with 2 new songs that are really fun.
Signal is nice, though I really hate the start and the few times this “rap” repeats itself. The bridge is lovely.
I was really astonished with Don’t Wanna Cry. I really like it a lot, yet I usually am not a big fan of Seventeen.
01. M-Remix – A Day Without You [Mashup]
02. Winner – Really Really
03. Minzy – NiNaNo (feat. Flowsik)
04. Hyolyn, Changmo – Blue Moon (prod. GroovyRoom)
05. OLNL – OYEAH
06. Winner – Fool
07. Lee Byoung Hyeon – Bye Bye Cloud
08. Lee Si Eun – A Letter To Me
I had Really Really stuck in my head for the longest time. Winner is doing good stuff, Fool is nice too.
I was excited for Minzy solo act, NiNaNo is nice, but I was kinda expecting a little more. Minzy is a good artist all over, dancing and vocals and everything. I thought they would find a more wholesome song for her solo debut. It’s hard to put it in words but it’s like it’s good, but it could be a little better. In fact, scrap the Flowsik featuring, for starters, then maybe add a tiny bit more of what 2NE1 use to make into the song, maybe a little more, a tiny bit more bubblyness? I don’t know.
Hey there my beautiful people!
I’m sorry, I know I’m getting almost a year behind. I hope I’ll have a little more free time to spend time to go through stuff here. That said, I’m still listening to just about every new release, of every genre. But I’m still late on that too, like about a month and a half late. If you wanna have a sneak peek of what was my jam over the past ~9 months, go to my YouTube channel, all the playlist are there, but some of them are still incomplete and most of them are not really set in a proper order, so you might get very slow stuff next to very upbeat stuff. Sorry again.
And since SHIMMixes didn’t realise the yearly mashup (so I think we can agree it won’t happen since it’s April already), I decided that I would direct you to the 2 best I’ve found. There was a few other, but it was either too noisy or not enough well crafted. We’ll see next year if those people do better. But in the meantime, here are the 2 “winners” of the 2016 Kpop Mashup competition (there was no competition, but whatever) :
01. Produce 101 – Pick Me (It’s Me)
02. Pristin – Wee Woo
03. Girl’s Day – I’ll Be Yours
04. Seven O’Clock – Echo
05. GFriend – Fingertip
06. Eric Nam, Jeon So Mi – You, Who?
07. Mamamoo – Double Trouble Couple OST
08. Sanchez, Kassy – 5 More Minutes (live)
09. John OFA Rhee – Somebody
10. Ashmute – Scenery
I’m obsessed with Wee Woo. The chorus is just so freakin catchy, it doesn’t make sense.
So for 5 More Minute, I had to put the original song in the Spotify playlist because the live version with Kassy is only on Youtube. But to be honest, I prefer the live version over the original one. I feel like the balance between Kassy’s voice and Sanchez’s is way more pleasing than only Sanchez voice for the whole song. I don’t know why but the original song tires me somehow.
01. BTS – Not Today
02. Raiden – Heart of Steal (feat. Bright Lights)
03. Taeyeon – I Got Love
04. Code Kunst – Fire Water (feat. G.Soul, Tablo)
05. Eden – Stand Up (feat. Babylon)
06. Ailee – Reminiscing
07. 13 Month – 그날이 떠오르는 밤
08. Soma – Midnight in Paris
09. Boni – Episode
Heart of Steal is not exactly Kpop maybe, but like, Raiden is a Seoul base DJ so, to me, it counts. The MV is quite interesting, on top of the song being really nice, so check it out.
I had a lot of trouble actually getting 8 songs or more for this one, so I don’t have much to say about the songs. It’s much more on the softer side this time too, so if you feel more like dancing around, only the first 3 songs will do, the rest is much more low pace, but still good.
01. Gallant, Tablo, Eric Nam – Cave Me In
02. Zion.T – The Song
03. Klang – The Wanted
04. Luna, Hani, Solar – Honney Bee (prod. by Keun Tae Park)
05. Kasper – Lean On Me
06. Yoon Do Hyun – Sparks Fly
07. 2NE1 – Goodbye
08. Heize – Round and Round (feat. Han Suji) OST
8 really great songs this month.
I’m in love with Cave Me In, for obvious reasons. The lyrics are out of this world too.
Sparks Fly haunts me. It’s just very soft and still with a little harsh quality, maybe because of the voice of the singer. Somewhat close to a lullaby and a campfire song. Anyway, please, give it a listen, it’s worth it.
01. Uhm Jung Hwa – Watch Me Move
02. iPartyNauseous – A Year in K-Pop 2016 Megamix
03. AOA – Excuse Me
04. BIGBANG – FXXK IT
05. eSNa – Attention
06. Seo In Guk – BeBe
07. Hwang Kwanghee, Gaeko – Your Night (feat. Oh Hyuk)
08. Sam Kim – Who Are You OST
09. Heize – Star
10. Soyu – I Miss You OST
11. Merry Go Round – Indian Summer
12. Heejung Han – Slow Dance (Acoustic Ver.)
I had like 10 more songs I put on hold over this month because I was feeling like crap and there was a whooooole lot of sad shit up there. I toned it down a little I think. It’s not very holiday-ish though.
Watch Me Move makes me wanna dance my ass off.
I wasn’t sure about Your Night at first, but who can resist the voice of Oh Hyuk? I mean, I can’t, for sure.
Same goes for Sam Kim’s voice. I’ve been watching Goblin and it’s the first song that real caught my attention to the point I had to jump on my computer and get it ASAP. It’s the chorus, how he’s singing it with all his might. I mean come on, what are you doing to me!?
