Another winner of a song from Lovelyz. This is really great to listen to.
Geiles Himmelblau
The video for this is quite amusing, as this kid puts on these magic glasses that make everything better. In fact, the busker chaps that hand them over to him do better out of it as well.
Lee Hi
Hold My Hand
I really like this one! It’s got some pixelated looking computer generated extra drawings overlayed on it too. Although they’re quite cute. There’s a bit of English in here as well. Check out that rolling thing towards the end as well. It looks like a Segway dealie with nothing to hold on to.
Lee Hi
I think this song was written by Jonghyun of SHINee, and it’s a really nice ballad. The video seems to rotate slightly as it goes on.
Lee Hi
My Star
This video inspired my Pink Foyer picture. It’s a great song, if not a bit too over-amplified in places. Apparently Lee Hi said she felt uncomfortable kissing that dude in it.
Fresh Adventure
Is this the right name for this song? I thought it also came under some other name. Anyway, I really like this one, and the LABOUM girlies look superb in it. Especially Zn & Soyeon. Soyeon also does a good high bit of singing.
That white building, with the arched windows — I now know where it is! It’s the Namsan Art Wedding Hall. This took an age for me to locate. I believe it’s located in Seoul.
Shooting Love
Ah! This is so good!
In Your Voice
I think this was Voisper’s 1st song. It explains the group’s name to mean “voice whisper.”
Someone Like You
Ladies’ Code
The Rain
This reminds me a bit of some other song in places. Zuny looks quite interesting with her blonde hair.
Red Velvet
Russian Roulette
This was one of the 1st great Korean songs I came across, when I started looking at MVs from there, in 2017. Red Velvet look quite differently dressed and styled to how I’m used to seeing them now.
Playing With Fire
This was the 1st BLACKPINK video I saw, & along with As If It’s Your Last, these are the only ones the group did that I like. I’m really glad BLACKPINK have done so well, because they just seemed really nice. Perhaps more so than how their image of not being girlie girls depicted them. Just because I’m not a fan of their music style doesn’t mean I don’t like who they are, I guess.
Melissa Naschenweng
A Wahnsinn Mit Dir (Live at Silvesterstadl)
This is super great, and Melissa really goes off with that accordion.
Troglauer Buam
I reckon this song’s one of the band’s stronger numbers, and you’ve gotta smile at all the funny stuff they do with the plane. I dunno if the women who turn up are really related to them, but the one with the black top is a bit of a looker.
Susan Ebrahimi
Ich Male Herzen In Rot
This is a pleasant, easy going kind of song.
Andreas Gabalier
Andreas puts his raspy voice to good use in this fun song, but dang, if I sang like that, I’d have no throat left. Anyway, it feels like a more modern spin on an older style rock ’n’ roll kind of tune.
Get ready to go back to a 1920s feel with this brilliant, upbeat, catchy song. If you like older style costumes too, then the MV delivers with everyone dressed for the occasion. The song ends really superbly as well, which I like.
There’s also this brilliant DressUp remix / redo / something, from 2020. Be sure to check it out as well. (It’s just a picture with a few moving bits for this, but the music’s the bit you’ll want to pay attention to.)
Winter Wonderland
A really amazing Japanese song from the SHINee chaps. It’s a good ballad & the video is so nicely done too.
TT is supposed to look like 2 crying eyes: T_T, but you need to stretch your imagination a bit. It sounds more like titty. I like to sing: “I like titties, just like titties. Tell me that they’ll feed my baby!” This one’s on my TWICEcoaster: Lane 2 CD.
Du Gefallener Engel
This song seems to’ve been done by other people as well, but Sunrise were the 1st people I heard it from.
Cori Liu
Ban Hu Sha
Oh! This brings back wonderful memories of when I was watching I Will Never Let You Go @ the start of 2020. This was the song for Xue Fei’s dance. The video’s just pictures really, but if you’ve seen the show, you should appreciate this anyway, just for the song.
Mijuku Dreamer
This is great, but I think the ending feels like a bit of a fizzle out.
Dejan Vunjak
Le Za Tebe
The blonde haired babe in this is worth a look regardless of the song. I think she’d do for me! Anyway, it’s another great one from Dejan Vunjak, and the guitar playing at about 1 minute sounds fabbo too.
1 Of 1
This is a great one. How about some of those clothes, huh? Yikes. The ones at the end are the best looking.
Jin Hae Sung + Eunha (of GFriend)
Cool Girl
This is probably like a trot genre song, I guess. I dunno. It reminds me just a tiny bit of Geiles Himmelblau (up the top of this page) by voXXclub, but I don’t think there’s any relationship. It’s probably just similar combinations of notes in places. Actually I heard Cool Girl 1st.
Sekai No Owari
Hey Ho
This is a pretty good one. It feels like it has 3 parts, with the 1st bit going up to about 3:20, then a kind of Irish feeling bit with the kids dancing until 3:45-ish, and then reverting back to the original style. I would’ve liked a bigger ending though.
The dots and lines @ 3:45 are Morse Code for SOS, which they sing in the song. (••• – – – •••) I could tell that without anybody else telling me, because I already knew it.
