Top KPOP Songs of 2010

So as the new year begins, here is my top 16KPOP songs for the year of 2010. 

1. Hello Shinee

2. Beautiful Beast

3. I’ll be There Taeyang

4. High High GD and Top

5. Good Day IU

6. Lucifer Shinee

7. I need a girl Taeyang

8. Go Away 2NE1

9. Hoot SNSD

10. No Other Super Junior

11. I did Wrong 2AM

12. Lupin Kara

13. Oh SNSD

14. Run Devil Run SNSD

15. Just a Feeling Taeyang

16. Love Ya SS501

As you could see, Shinee is at the top of my 2010 rankings for favorite song. Actually they were also my favorite group for 2010. So you might wonder why Hello is over every other songs that sold better than the repackaged album. Well first the song is something that you won’t get tired of listening to. I remember having this song on my Ipod since October and I didn’t grew tired of this song until now. Second is that it’s vintage Shinee. Yes, Shinee isn’t that old to be called vintage. But in their last two singles before Hello (Lucifer and Ring Ding Dong) they used a much darker theme than the old ones. Another thing that made me like Hello was the vocals. I mean this one shows how they’re really a great group. Jonghyun’s vocal range is so high.

Here is their first performance of the song  live at Music Bank.

So beautiful is at 2. Why? Because the song is so addicting. Well I kinda got over with Beautiful for about a few days now (because of IU’s Good day). However, the song is still fun. What not to like about this. It’s so different than Beast’s old song. They look much cute here.

Taeyang’s I’ll be There ranks at 3. Okay to be honest 1-3 doesn’t have that much difference at all. I love those 3 songs equally I guess. Well anyways Taeyang’s I’ll be There is a superb song for a lot of reasons. One thing I found is the emotion of the song. Yes like most of Taeyang’s song it’s about a particular girl that he loves. The choreography is another awesome thing about this. The song have a very very difficult choreography as I could see. Despite all of that, Taeyang can still hit those high notes.

So from 4-16 they’re actually random. They can vary depending on my mood. However, they’re still the songs that I really really liked for the whole 2010. If you have objections with that then I suggest you go to another blog site.

 

JPOP Fandom unleashed!

Before reading this post. Please be aware that the things below will mostly contain Arashi songs. Thanks

So between H!P, JPOP (meaning artists out of H!P), and KPOP. I spent the lesser time lately in JPOP. I haven’t been listening to this for quite some time now. Especially Arashi. I missed them. They are like my all time favorite Boy band in the whole wide world. Better than Big Bang, Shinee, Westlife, and Backstreet Boys.

To start thing of. Here’s Arashi performing their song Subarashiki Sekai live.

This song has been on my head since the start of the week. This triggered my return to JPOP after a few months of Hiatus. I haven’t been listening to a lot of JPOP since the beginning of July this year.

So not many people know about this. But way way back, when Arashi was just starting their 20 #1 singles. There was a plan to release a PV for their song Subarashiki Sekai.

Well it didn’t worked out. JE decided not to release it. I think they favored to release Sakura Sake than Subarashiki Sekai. So the song ended up to be a track in ther ONE album.

Here’s another ballad from Arashi. SIRIUS is one of my favorite ballad songs from Arashi. It’s nice to listen to like most of their ballad songs.

Las one from Arashi. Here’s one of my favorite songs from them. Kitto Daijobu.

Okay so moving on to the non-Arashi artists. Here’s Ai Otsuka with her song, my personal favorite, Daisuki da yo

So good news for Ai Otsuka fans (it’s good for me). She’s finally pregnant with her musician husband from that band that I have no idea who. Yes she’ll be out for quite some time. Her baby is due on April 2011]

Okay so next is not too JPOP but you can consider this as Jpop I guess? So Shoujou Jidai (SNSD) has recently released their song Genie in Japan.

It ranked number 4 on the oricon charts in its first week. Beating out AKB48 sub-group French Kiss who only ranked number 5.

I actually feel good at the same time not for them. I feel good because that means SNSD is a success in Japan like most of the korean groups who promoted in Japan. But I feel sad because if they’re success continue, it will take some time before they return with a new song in Korea. Just like what happened to Big Bang. And if I’m not mistaken, I’ve read somewhere that they will release their next single come October or November. And that song is none other than Gee. Yes the girls will bring the Gee wave to Japan as well.

In some sad news. The Music Hour otherwise known as UTABAN has ended its 14 year run in television yesterday. The finales aired yesterday with a 3 hour special. Memorable artist appeared on the show to say farewell such as SPEED and the old Morning Musume. Ohno Satoshi from Arashi appeared as well on the show.

Well I guess that ends my JPOP fandom rant for this week. Tune in tonight for some KPOP action only here on JKMUSICPH

Versions: Acoustics

Okay so in case you didn’t know. If I’m not in to JPOP/KPOP, my favorite kind of music would normally acoustic songs. Such as John Mayer (who will be in the Philippines on October 1). So I was browsing the net in search of nice KPOP/JPOP covers in acoustic. Well the only success I had was with KPOP so let’s start things of with it.

So with the first part of versions tonight. Here’s Acoustics

One of the most popular solo artist in Korea today is IU. Yep to be honest she’s one of my favorite. She has a lot of acoustic covers from KPOP to English songs.

Here’s one sample. It’s a cover of Tamia’s Officially Missing You by IU

Lovely isn’t it. I really liked her version. It’s more soothing to the ears.

Now here’s a cover of SNSD’s Gee, Big Bang’s Lies, and Super Juniors Sorry Sorry.

Now here’s SNSD and Super Junior doing Way Back Into Love

Okay. So still without success with JPOP. But I found a nice acoustic cover of Arashi’s Wish. No Vocals but still great I guess.

Well that’s all I found tonight. Tune in for tomorrow as I show you another Versions. Tomorrow’s episode will be all about youtube stars who cover Hello! Project songs

Returning myself to the Hello! Project fandom!

Hey y’all. It’s been a while since I blogged about something. I actually tried a lot of time but I only end up not finishing those posts. But here’s a more serious one that I’m gonna post. Yes finally!

It’s been a while since I last got my head into any Hello! Project songs. Yes I am aware of the new releases and all but I never had and LSS on any Hello! Project song for quite some time now. Normally it’s been Big Bang, Taylor Swift, Camp Rock, Justin Beiber, and some old school OPM songs. But heck I still love Hello! Project the same way as before.

To start things of. Here’s one of my favorite Hello! Project groups Buono! with my favorite song from them, Kiss Kiss Kiss.

I still love this song no matter what. And Airi. Yes I never get tired loving her. She’s still my all time favorite. Like my Lebron James only on Hello! Project.

Speaking of Airi, have you seen her new Photobook. Well it’s just plain love. She looks so mature yet still a young lady.

Yes she’s sooo pretty I know. I love that red two piece on her (because red is my favorite color).

Okay so I found this two pics interesting. The top one is from the new photobook while the bottom one is from Ao Iro. I just find that the shirt they’re wearing are quite the same. Maybe different in color but it looks so so the same.

Yes I’m watching We are Buono! concert right now. Don’t be surprised. Yes I’ve been into Big Bang a lot since July but I never forgot them.

So as what I have heard. Momo and Eririn are going to release new photobooks soon. Eri’s PB entitled “Eririn” will be released on the 26th (next week). I think this is a must have photobooks for Eri’s fans since this is most likely her last one while still a member of Morning Musume.

Momo’s PB on the other hand will be release next month. It is entitled Momochi Zukan and it is due on October 20th. No previews has been released so far. But I gotta have my hands on this one since I’m a Momo fan.

Before I forget. Today is the 14th of September and it’s Morning Musume and Hello! Project’s one and only leader, Takahashi Ai’s birthday!

Happy 24th birthday Ai-chan.

So moving on. Two former Morning Musume members, namely Goto Maki and Aya Matsuura are going to released new albums soon. Aya Matsuura announced her album during  a recent Cotton Club concert. The album is set to release on 11/24

Goto Maki’s album has also been announced just recently. Though it has less details than the other one, everyone is still looking forward for it. The set release date is also on 11/24

Coincidence? Well this looks like a Morning Musume rivalry as I see it.

To make things a little weirder. Mano Erina’s 2nd Album still untitled is also set for release on the same date. 11/24

More Buono! coming.

Kataomoi is one of my favorite Buono! songs ever. It’s just so rockish and cool.

Oh yeah! S/mileage rank #9 on Music Station’s new artist that will breakout in the second half of the year. They were just beaten by artist such as Shoujou Jidai (SNSD) and Kara. Which are like Korean girl groups.

Well I guess that ends my Hello! Project fandom. Tune in tomorrow (or tonight whenever I feel like it) for my JPOP fandom to breakout.

Monthly Poll Results: First Half song of the Year!

Saturday Night Live!

Another Saturday Night Live! Yes but I apologize for this week since there will be songs that aren’t in Live performance.

So the first two songs are from Naruto Shippuuden which is my recent obsession (yes more than H!P I Guess)

The first one is the last Naruto Shippuuden ending before the new one which debuted yesterday; Jitensha by Oreskaband

The other one is the opening for Naruto Shippuuden during the Hidan and Kakuzu arc.

Yes I missed A LOT of Naruto Shippuuden episodes and just decided to watch it again starting from the Hidan and Kakuzu arc which in my opinion is the second best arc in Naruto right now; only next to the Invasion of Pain arc which is the current arc in the anime.

Next is a song by 2AM which was released a couple of months ago. Yes I’m kinda late I know. But this song just recently hit me hard. Yeah I love this song and how Jo Kwon looks a little less gay. It’s their last single I Did Wrong.

Speaking of Jo Kwon looking Gay. Him dancing to SNSD’s Gee looks so GAY!

Next is something that never grows old with me. It’s F(x)’s NU ABO

Okay following up next is something that I instantly liked! It’s Super Junior’s new song No Other.

This song for me is actually better than Bonamana. It kinda reminded me of the old Super Junior which makes me miss the other 3 members. ]

And this week’s main event is none other than the guy who’s making HIS comeback this week. It’s Big bang’s own TAEYANG!

Sorry for my readers who are fans of H!P. It just that this week is mostly KPOP for me. Don’t worry next week for sure! :-bd

2PM and SNSD releases Caribbean Bay MV

(from allkpop)

After so much anticipation. 2PM and SNSD finally released the MV to their collaboration track Carribbean Bay. The single was released earlier today and the MV was released at the middle of the day I guess.

Well moving to the MV. The MV is extremely hot. I’m a guy so when I said hot that literally means Yoona and Yuri. Though the guys from 2PM are also hot. The MV is actually quite good. It excites you with their hot bodies and sexy outfits. You can’t go wrong with this one.

Watch the MV below
