kpop non-title tracks

 I've getting back into kpop recently and I stumbled upon this video by Simon and Martina. Since the only song I knew/liked was Electric Heart, I decided I'll make my own list. There are a lot of songs I want to include and it would've become too long, even for me, so this is the compromise: I embedded my favorites and linked the rest as honorable mentions. Without further ado, here it is:

Ladies and gentlemen, The Song. I don't think SHINee will ever make a song I'll love more than Obsession. The lyrics are awesome, the melody is awesome, the song is downright haunting and there is even a freaking guitar solo. Kpop music companies should let the artists write their songs more often.

The honorable mentions for SHINee are A-Yo, JoJo and Stranger. I'm pretty sure Stranger was my favorite off the Sherlock EP, and the other two are just adorable.

This one is the U-Kiss version of Obsession for me. Again, I don't think U-Kiss will ever make a song I love more than this one. The entire Neverland album is freaking brilliant, it's a shame Neverland was the only song that got a video and proper promotion. And since I'm fighting myself to put the entire album here, expect a pretty long list of honorable mentions.

That's one of the slow ones. It's beautiful, the English in it is beautiful (I mean, they do have 3 members that are fluent in English, it would be extremely awkward).

Another ballad. Did I mention their ballads in Neverland are awesome? As is the whole Neverland?

And now the honorable mentions. I've never been good with accurate decriptions of things that I love, so I won't even try. Just listen. Tell Me Y, Obsession, On The Floor, Baby Don't Cry, Story of April.

Zero is from the One Shot EP. I loved it so much when it came out that it was my ringtone for a while, I can't help but love the beginning.
An honorable mention from the same EP - Coma. It's a mention not because it's not good enough, but because most of it is in the One Shot MV. One Shot is just a great EP.

I stumbled upon this one by accident. It was playing on a tumblr page I clicked and it was love at first note. I am a bit mad at myself I haven't gone through MBLAQ's discography more thouroughly but oh well.

THIS SOOOOONG. I'm pretty sure it's about a psychopath kidnapping and killing his ex. It's awesome. I've always viewed it as sort of a companion to She's Gone but I'm not sure if that's the case. They are from the same album and I don't really remember any of the other songs but maaaaaaaan these two. I kind of like She's Gone more, but both these songs, to this day are my favorite GD and two of my all time favorite kpop songs.

I think the album version is the one featuring Missy Elliott. For years I thought I liked that version more but nope, I have been living a lie.

The honorable mention here is not by GD himself, but Big Bang as a whole - Cafe.

This song, as well as the next one are my favorite off XOXO. I used the Chinese version simply because I listened to the Hug edition more, so I got used to Chen's vocals more. This should have been the title track. It's an awesome song, it has potential for an awesome video, for fuck's sake SM, Simon and Martina are right.

Long, long before the album came out a demo version of this surfaced. It was in English by... I don't remember who. Anyway, ever since that demo version Let Out The Beast was the song I was most excited for and, after it actually came out, one of my favorites.

Honorable EXO mentions - 3.6.5, Peter Pan, Heart Attack.

I was so confused when I realized this one doesn't have a music video. It's just too good.

And now I'm going into the questionably/most likely not-kpop korean songs I love and have no videos. Really, whatever attention they receive, they deserve more.

I found this song on spotify by accident. It's hands down one of the greatest songs I've ever heard. It's so melancholic, it's so beautiful. I just have no words.

This one was supposed to have a video but it was banned. And not we'll-never-air-it-in-Korea banned. Banned as in there is no video anywhere. Only the teaser. You can see why someone doesn't want this video and most likely this song, to be popular. The lyrics make you stop and think for a second. They're so honest and... the thing you need to feel, not read about.

This. This is the reason I fell in love with San-E. 

Well, that was long. Oh well. Better than a three-page essay on My Chemical Romance, I guess.

This is a list of ten (if I manage to make them only ten) songs that I'll probably never get tired of. Never. I've listened to most of them on repeat for days. Multiple times.

This is the best music video ever made I swear ;-;

The Korean version does the trick too <3

More than 10 whoops. Then again, I like the number 12 so I guess it's okay.
Funny thing is, for most of the non-kpop artists there this is the only song of theirs I know/like. Love. Adore. You know what I mean.
Actually, now that I think of it, the only artists, kpop and non-kpop, that I actually listen to if we exclude the songs above (and maybe one or two more for each artist O.o) are... Bon Jovi. Lunafly. And Maroon 5 maybe. Kind of.
...And that's pretty much it. ._.
Well, I don't exactly count B.A.P because while I do like a bunch of their songs, most of the time they're just, meh.
I re-read this and I realized I make no sense. Oh well. It's not like someone reads it anyway. *side-eyes Momo & Ivetchen.*
I might do a part two of this because I have nothing better to do. orz

 No more Alice Hoffman for me.
No more.
Maybe "Practical Magic" when they translate it in Bulgarian.
But that's it.
I swore I won't touch any of her books from now on, but I can't, okay? I just finished "The Ice Queen" and I was more or less bored until the last 50 or something pages. It definitely did not end like I expected it to. It had that emotional thingy that warms you up inside but... It's like those romcoms, you enjoy while you watch them but you don't even remember what happens two days later. Speaking of that, I just finished "The Ice Queen" and I still have no idea what's the lead character's name. No really. I looked through random parts where it could be mentioned but no, no name. And I just count the characters. All of them. 22. Including all the people whose name and existence even is mentioned not more than once. Including the cat and the dog too (not counting the moles because they technically had no names). That's not much. And I still can't get over the fact that I don't know the lead character's name. No more Alice Hoffman for me.

That aside. I made a goodreads account. And it ruined my life. I am constantly begging someone to buy me books. I am about to spend 1/4 of my savings for books. And I only spent like... 5 minutes there. Goodreads is a scary place.
I'll probably rant about those books too, at some point. For now though, I'd like to keep my sanity. Just for tonight. ;-;

BtoB's new video. BTOB'S NEW VIDEO, OKAY.

The song is okay. It's okay. A little more than okay. It's calm, it has that indie feel to it and I love Peniel's "you think I want you back. psht".
The reason for the epic fan spazz though. HE HAS A NEW TATTOO. TATTOOS. I CAN'T. I CAN'T EVEN.
Changsub bby. Come to mama.

Did I mention Sungjae + blond hair equals perfection? No? It does.
And that's as far as my pg thoughts go.
...that's not really pg, is it?

Look at me, spazzing over kpop while listening to ADTR. fyeah.
That's the song by the way. BtoB's.
