Well, this year, I’m really not feeling the Christmas song. It’s such a shame though, I was really looking forward for this year Christmas bonanza since last year was really fun and great.
There’s a really short MV for SsSs, but since you just get about 1/3 of the song, I didn’t put it on the YouTube playlist. The song is really fun, but I was maybe expecting something else from Dynamic Duo, even though it’s a collaboration. It’s more pop than what they usually do, even when they actually go for a more mainstream sound. But you still get some Dynamic Duo rap throughout the track.
IU’s song is the same old Christmas song that pops out on the chart every year.
Daybreak Rain is interesting, but I don’t have a real opinion on it. I think I’ll still keep an eye on Shannon since I think she might surprise us later on, but I’m not that much into that one. Her first EP is planned for 2015 so we’ll see more of her anyway.
I really hate Hearthrob. Way too aegyo for me.
But then, there’s Brand New Music that release this awesome track in all this Christmas music crap fest. I really like Brand New Day a lot, I think even more than You Make Me Feel BRAND NEW. The beat is good and Kang Min Hee’s part (the chorus) is really joyful, balancing everything quite well.
Thinking About You would be really good, if the track was only Jay Park’s part again and again. The rest is a bit meh… Kinda makes me think about Metronome.
