Rotation #3

ahh, I haven't posted in a month, so I thought I'd share some songs that I've been listening to lately. :] If you notice there a bunch of ballads in this bunch. heehee. Tell me about what you think of this Rotation by leaving a comment okay! 

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Jpop:

Perfume - CHOCOLATE DISCO
From: album "Game"
Genre: Electronica, Dance
Size: 5.2 MB

The song that me made a fan of Perfume. Its just so cute and bubble. It will get stuck in your head.

Ai Otsuka - Daisukidayou
From: album "Ai am Best"
Genre: Ballad
Size: 3.2 MB

I hadn’t listened to Ai in a long time, so I went online and picked a video at random. Well I made a good choice. It’s one of those “heart wrenching love songs” that Ai Otsuka is surprisingly good at it. Definitely worth listening too.

Tohoshinki - My Destiny
From: album "Heart, Mind,and Soul"
Genre: R&B
Size: 4.5 MB

Why do I love this song so much? Is it because its DBSK? Because Changmin throws a perfectly good ipod on the floor in the video? (o-0?) I'm not sure either but the point is, its a good song and I love it. :]

English:

Leona Lewis - Bleeding Love
From: album "Spirit"
Genre: Ballad,
Size: 3.6 MB

This song is a hit at my school, everytime we go to the computer lab, I always here this song. I thought it was ok at first, but this song grew on me. :] Leona Lewis is very talented, and this song is...unique.

Cherish - Keep it Fresh
From: album "The Truth"
Genre: pop, R&B
Size: 4.8 MB

I think I really like this song because the music reminds me of some kind of Kpop. It sounda...different. Which is great in this music pool of sameness we have in America. :]

Kim Sozzi  - Break Up [Cascada Remix]
From: single "Break Up"
Genre: Electronica, Dance
Size: 3.7 MB

Kim Sozzi sounds like the new Cascada. It kinda reminds me of "Everytime we touch", but the lyrics are about breaking up instead of getting together. XD Its been stuck in my head all week~~ -_-;;

Boys Like Girls - The Great Escape
From: self-titles album "Boys Like Girls"
Genre: rock
Size: 5.1 MB

Last summer, when this song was a hit, I didn't understand. But when you actually listen to it, you get this feeling of freedom and youth from the song. :] Summers almost here, take a listen.

Spanish:

Belanova - Baila me Corazon
From: album "Fantasia Pop"
Genre: pop, Electronica
Size: 3.1 MB

For me, Belanova is really refreshing and they have a great style that you barely see in Latin Pop. I think this is one of their best song yet. :]

Aleks Syntek feat. Ana Torroja - Duele el Amor
From: album "Mundo Live"
Genre: Ballad
Size: 8.4 MB

This song is pretty much about how 2 people can't live without each other. Aleks Syntek and Ana Torroja have very good chemistry in this song. Nice listen,

La Oreja de Van Gogh - Rosas
From: album "Lo que te sonte mientra te hacia la dormida"
Genre: Ballad
Size: 5.4 MB

This song is pretty much about a girl that can't get through a break up. And how she waits for him to come back. The lyrics pretty much break my heart. :p Here's me trying to translate some of it...

Y es que empiezo a pensar (then I start to wonder)
Que el amor verdadero es tan sólo el primero. (that true love is only the first time)
Y es que empiezo a sospechar (then I start to think)
Que los demás son sólo para olvidar. (that the rest are to forget it)

T^T, yeah it gets me.
(and like I said, I tried my best to translate.) XD
-------------------------------------------------------------------

Well this is all for now. I hope everyone enjoys it. :]

Jade Valerie from Sweetbox has gone solo. This is her first album. The songs on this album still fell like Sweetbox because of Jades voice, but I think the music is...edgier? XD  My favorite song on this album is gonna have to be Unbreakable, because Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata" is in it. It adds to the lyrics and feeling of the song. Very nice. :)

"Samsung Electronics has unveiled the 2008 Beijing Olympics theme song and the music video that will be used for advertising its Anycall mobile phones. Singer and actor Rain, who is one of the hottest celebrities in Asia, stars in the music video.

Samsung Electronics, one of the official sponsors of the 2008 summer Olympic games, launched the music video starring Rain at a recent event announcing the participants of the Olympic Flame relay.

Oh~ I love Rain.

"Rain is coming down and it don't stop." is so catchy. In My Bed , (*-*), is also a great song.  Best ballads on here. :) I really like Friends, its so sentimental :) "Cause I'm your friend forever don't forget" If this is the first time you've ever heard about Rain, and you really like R&B, try him out. You'll become an instant fan. :)

Wonder Girls! They're so cool, I have to share them. :) This is their first full length album. Tell Me is soo addictive. After a couple of listens, I couldn't help but sing along with the chorus. "Tell me tell me tell tell tell tell tell tell me". The song is pretty much tell me you like me. :P Cute. Songs like Irony and Bad Boy take it up a notch and the older members take the lead. The songs are more funky and hiphop, than the other cute pop songs. Overall, I really like this group. They're sassy and independent, and I hope to be hearing more of them soon. :)

"Keep On" is Tanaka Roma's debut album. I think it was a nice way to start off too. :]  Most of his songs are upbeat and have a carefree feeling. One and New Day are good songs to listen to if you've been having a bad day. The standout of this album would definetly be Breath. I don't know but its got a sensual and unique feel to it. :p
