[K-Pop] Top 20 Ranking 2014

…And here it goes again, like last year: My personal ranking of songs that came out in 2014 and impressed me in any way to a point that I’m still listening to them today.
I’ll try not to be too biased towards songs that came out recently, but also consider songs from this years’ beginning. 2014 has been a year full of too many good songs for me, so it was really hard to draw my conclusion. Let’s see…~

20. “Snake” – A-Jax


While A-Jax ranked pretty high last year, I barely heard anything from them this year. Still,  this song managed to sneak inside my head and made itself quite comfortable there. While the video is kinda cute at best, but rather clisheé overall, the song itself is somehow catchy and kept me in a good mood. It’s an easy-going song, but somehow the chorus melody just goes well with me~ I hope they’ll be more successful this year!

[5 Songs] that are meaningfully deep

*sing* Deeper than the sea~
…Yeah, right. Maybe I’m listening to Exo too much.

-This time I’m not gonna split into Korean/Japanese, but rather go for 2 Korean, 2 Japanese and 1 Chinese song-

Some people like to let go while listening to music, to forget all the problems in the world.
And I won’t deny that’s probably the intention of some artists, as well. But there are certain artists to choose otherwise: To point out problems they see or to name their innermost fears and troubles as a first step to progress them and to encourage other people to follow them in doing this. I’ve always had the habit to fall for this type of songs. Hard. They haunt me, wrap me up and don’t let me go… Does this even make sense?

I’m gonna introduce you to some songs that fall under my category of truly meaningful songs – Let’s go tackle some issues, then?

The reason for not focusing on any language is that those songs simply are the strongest ones and I wanted to keep this list on a level as high as possible. Also people shouldn’t cling to one language only~
I can still make a second list if I come upon more songs like this :)

1. BADMAN from B.A.P (Korean)


A predictable entry in this list, huh?
People who’re into K-Pop might know that B.A.P’s leader Yongguk is notoriously un-idol-like. Not overly pretty, not overly cute, just not overly attention-seeking(No offense to idols doing their job). He just seems believably human and real and has an honest soft spot for all kind of charity on top of that. Though still young he already has the feeling of a true artist sticking to him, for obvious reasons. Rather than taking the safe route he produces songs and writes lyrics which more often than not tackle various problems.

And oh boy, BADMAN is a strong song. In means of the costumes, the as always Blockbuster-like video but mostly in terms of lyrics.

[5 Songs] that are plain hot(Korean)

Woooh, I’m back! Sorta. I’m using an old netbook I lent, so my possibilites are still kinda narrow, but let’s see what we can do~
I’m now back from Korea aaa~nd, first thing I did…? I caught a cold. Seriously, it’s really warm here(about 25 Degrees), but the Korean temperature brings ‘hot’ to a totally different level. Why am I babbling about this? Can’t you see the poor pun on ‘hot songs’ announcing itself on the horizon? You can? Thank god, let’s skip this, then.

With the overflowing ‘sexy concepts’ everywhere, my opinion became just more refined lately. There are different types of sexy: One, the almost desperate undressing and showcasing of bare skin which, at times, is not only totally uneccessary(*cough* Nu’est’s Sleep Talking *cough*), but also incredibly awkward at other ones(BTS, I’m looking at YOU. I really love you and I do believe you; you have abs. No need to reassure me in every damn Choreo, ok?).
Now let’s drop the rant and move on to the second type, the one that gives me goosebumps because it’s really sexy.

1. When, Where, How from Park Kyung


I think you all know by now my love for the Block B’s bubbly rapper Kyung. It’s also probably safe to say that this duet on the ‘Very Good’ mini album came as a surprise in two ways. One: Kyung can not only be dorky, but also has an amazingly soft yet strong voice. Two: Damn, this song is sexy. It’s basically a song about lazy morning sex. Doesn’t sound too enticing, but the soft vocals carry lyrics that are very sensitive and colorful:

Instead of a morning call, the rain wakes me up
Between those sounds, I hear you ruffling around
It’s 11 o’clock, the curtains are closed
I like things just the way they are right now

Your tangled hair, your sleepy voice
You wear my x-large t-shirt…
Don’t mind the mess around us
Don’t mind it… Continue reading

5 Korean songs that are (positively) Creepy!

“Positively Creepy”, you ask? Well, I can only talk for me, but I freakin’ love creepy songs. Songs that keep haunting me with their melody and their disturbing lyrics. Today I’m going to recommend some songs that give me goosebumps!
Actually I know far more Japanese songs of that sort, but I’ll start with the Korean ones today. Let the fun(?) begin:

1. Psycho – History

Let’s start out with a new song! Psycho from History doesn’t hold back in the least and gives us some direct insight into a rejected boyfriend that turns into a living nightmare:

Did you think you’d be done with me if we broke up?
Well, you thought wrong

There’s nobody by your side tonight.
[…] and once everybody who might see is deep asleep
I’ll go get you.

The playful tone they use along with the soothing, yet odd voice that seems to smile while singing… *shudder*

[News] B.A.P veröffentlich das Mv zu ‘Where are you going’~

…Und es ist süß, ruhig und gleichzeitig ein bisschen weird. Aber süß weird.
Und wir dürfen es in Deutschland sehen:

Das Video ist superschön gemacht und der Song ist angenehm fürs Ohr – Nicht zu krass, nicht zu melancholisch, einfach unschuldig glücklich.
Ein Lied, was man draußen vor sich hinpfeifen könnte ♪
Uuu~nd Himchan trägt wieder einen Hut! Das kann er ruhig öfter tragen. Yongguk steht der schlichte Style auch zu Gesicht.
B.a.p macht einfach selten etwas falsch ♥

5 koreanische Lieder, die einfach gute Laune machen!

Hallo ♪
Es gab lange kein Review mehr von mir… Aber auch wenn ich ziemlich beschäftigt bin im Moment – Musik höre ich immernoch 24/7~!
Nachdem ich schon von Kyung’s “Cheesy, Cheesy” geschwärmt habe, bin ich auf die Idee gekommen euch mal 5 Lieder vorzustellen, die es immer schaffen mich aufzumuntern~
Die Reihenfolge ist willkürlich und wie immer geht all meine Liebe an die Subber ♥

1. Super Junior – No Other


Zu diesem Song muss ich gar nicht viel sagen glaube ich. Er ist einfach so… Glücklich. Und das Video ist SO. Niedlich. Ich weiß nicht, ob ich mich übergeben oder weinen möchte, aber eins steht fest: Das Lied bringt mich zum Grinsen wie eine Idiotin. Continue reading

Review [Musikvideo] – “1004(Angel)” von B.A.P

Hallo~ ♪

Wie bereits angekündigt, stelle ich heute das neue Musikvideo von B.a.p vor: “1004”, gelesen “Angel”.
Direkt vorne weg sollte vielleicht erwähnt sein, dass es sich bei “1004” nicht, wie der Titel vermuten lässt, um eine leise, vor sich hin leidende(ich entschuldige mich für die subtile Kritik ;) Ballade handelt, sondern um eine “Verzweifelter-Aufschrei”-Ballade.
Einige meiner Screenshots haben leider Untertitel, man möge mir verzeihen :’)
