Musical Friday – My Solo Duet

動力火車 Power Station – 跟自己合唱 My Solo Duet

Judging by the time stamp, I heard this while I was in Taiwan in December. The date also tells me I was in Starbucks at the time.

Looking for this video to post, it was the first time I had seen it. Power Station is a Taiwanese Duo.

The video, is in a way open to interpretation when you don’t understand the lyrics. And, I have to say that this was an interesting one to watch, so I do recommend you check it out rather than just listen to it :)

Musical Friday – Stained Love

영과영 – 얼룩진 사랑

This was the last song I Shazzam’ed while I was in Korea. It was playing in the taxi the day before I left. What drew me into it, was the fact that I had interpreted it as a man who had been abandoned by their loved one. One whose love had changed. That is, how I somewhat felt about my time in Korea.

Okay no need to get into the long story now.

Anyway, the translation of the title is Stained Love. So when I think about it that way, it still…sits with me.

Funny thing?
I should be in Korea by the time this publishes. Well, have been there for almost 12 hours. Funny how things happen…

Musical Friday – Lights Out

Virginia to Vegas – Lights Out

“I always feel like somebody’s watching me”
No joke, I loved this song because of that one bit. I was in the car with my dad, and I heard it on the radio. I kept trying to Shazzam it, but for some reason he was trolling me and kept lowering the volume. I didn’t realize until I heard him laugh.

Dad… oTL

Rockwell – Somebody’s Watching Me

Musical Friday – The Crooked Kind

Radical Face – The Crooked Kind

This is just so…mellow. I love that I can listen to it for long periods of time, and yet still be intrigued by it.

Another one from the Elementary viewings of recent days.

Musical Friday – Follow Follow

Tunng Follow Follow

On an Elementary kick right now. Well, I’m using it in the sense of background noise, but hey, it is bringing me back to some old music that I did like when I watched it the first time.

The plucks in this contrasted the overall song. In a sense, it is just busy. And yet, it is oddly becoming an earworm for me.

Musical Friday – If You Came into My Heart

Lee Jonghyuk – If You Come Into My Heart
So, I was going through my songs, and came across this again. It made me want to watch the drama all over again…which I proceeded to do. This was the clip from the drama, and it has the subtitles. Lee Jonghyuk did his rendition for the drama, A Gentlemen’s Dignity. I do like his voice, but it was originally sung by Jo Dukbae, and its longer than what they previewed in the drama. So, of course I have to favour the longer version more :P

조덕배/Jo Dukbae – 그대 내맘에 들어오면/If You Came into My Heart

Anyway, it is just so heartwarming, which makes me feel all happy.

Musial Friday – Reminiscing

Xue Zhiqian/薛之謙 – 官方完整版

Okay, so the MV is kinda depressing. So, not a great way to start off the weekend, but it was another I heard during my travels in December and wanted to share :)

Actually, it reminded me of another singer, and another song…but cannot recall. Haven’t listened to Taiwanese or Chinese music in ages…If you have suggestions, do lmk.
