My favourite spins on Youtube at the moment

When I first heard this song on the radio – I imagined it was sung by a Caucasian singer, Taylor Swift to be precise. It emitted the kind of vibe that she would associate herself with. Turns out it was Rose, a member of BlackPink who speaks in a terrific, sexy Australian accent.

I love this song. No wonder it has more than 120M views.

A classic by one of the best songstress in the country who existed during the times of Siti Nurhaliza. She is actually the queen of R&B, so to hear about this collaboration with Aubrey Suwito to record a Malay Classic album is somewhat refreshing. This rendition of Tari Tualang Tiga for example is just wow. Legend says they recorded the whole album LIVE with the orchestra outside of the studio. Meaning, those video clips you see of these songs is them recording concurrently.

The local music scene needs to pay more attention to this young man. He is like a young Faizal Tahir – have been reading comments on Youtube saying that his existence has FT’s DNA’s attached to it. Indeed. Amir Masdi after all was the champion for Akademi Fantasia some time ago, it’s just that the other winners in his batch kind of overshadowed him with their endless controversies (and talent). With his recent participation in Anugerah Juara Lagu (AJL), it should open more doors for him.

I have never actually watched this KDrama but hearing this for the first time on Youtube during one of those random clicks got me attached strongly to it. The video clip was enough to make me understand the meaning behind this soundtrack. It is not Kdrama if it doesn’t make you cry.

This guy was first known (to me) as an actor. Turned out he was equally talented in singing and composing. For a newcomer to the industry, it was an underdog accomplishment when he won AJL 34 with his song, Sumpah. AJL is this popular annual music competition, organized by TV3 in Malaysia since 1986 (wikipedia). We get really hyped about this competition, make predictions and such.

That’s it for now. I haven’t heard a good Chinese, Japanese and Spanish song for quite some time. Before it was a time of Rosalinda, MIs Tres Hermanas, Richie Ren, Ayumi Hamasaki but now I seem to have lost touch.

The part when Han Yoon Chan declares to Jang Hana

Hana asked Yoon Chan,

” You still worry about me knowing that I love him? “

and he said..

” I told you to lean on me when you’re scared or things got tough. Even if you love someone else, my feelings won’t change. I’ll always protect you.

I’ve known you and him for a while now. I wish I was your love. But I acknowledge that I’m not the one who makes your heart beat faster.

You won’t give up on love or work. I know you won’t. You’ll keep going forward. You’ll be in pain and you might feel lost. When things get tough, don’t forget that I’m always here for you. You’ll be in pain because of your love for him. You’ll realize one day love that hurts can never last. Come to me when you realize that. I’ll be waiting.

There are many kinds of love. My way of loving you is to be there for you.. no matter what”
