FAVORITE SONGS OF 2011 PT.1

This post is exactly what the title says.  Part 1/6 of what I feel are my favorite songs of 2011. (I couldn’t choose just a few.)

I’ve honestly always wanted to do this but was always too lazy lol but this time I was determined to make it happen. Like I said, there are 6 parts and I’ll have them all posted by the first of the new year. All together there are about 50 songs, I think?

I picked these song based on how many times I’ve listened to them and how I personally feel towards them. This has absolutely nothing to do with quality (well…not completely anyway), because some songs I chose over others that were probably “better”.

To put it simply, these are songs that were released this year that I really enjoyed. That’s that.  So on to it.

(I may go back and leave DL links to the songs…I’m not sure yet.)

SONGS OF THE MOMENT #6

Masaki Yuka – Change Myself (Excited for her debut album next month! I say this every time I post one her songs, but you guys need to listen to her. Great J-urban artist.)

Nine Muses – Figaro (Never listened to Nine Muses before this, but I think this is a nice song. Someone inform me, is retro the new trend in Kpop now? This is like my third or fourth time seeing this concept.)

SPEED – PRIDE Ft. 大神: OHGA (I’ve been slacking on the working out for the last week lol but when I did  work out I played this song a lot. It’s perfect for it.)

Zion – Superman (I’m kind of head over heels in love with this  song lol. I just heard it for the first time a couple of hours ago, but I think it’s gorgeous and a bit refreshing tbh. It has the usual characteristics of Korean ballads..but idk, I still get different feelings from it. Not to mention Zion’s voice is beautiful.)

w-inds. – You & I (This single is so good I can’t even. Every single song is amazing. I’m fake bawling at the computer screen right now typing this. Just the thought of those songs…/sigh)

Koyote – 이제와 싫다면 (I don’t really watch K-dramas anymore, but I swear as soon as I heard this song it reminded me of the music that plays at the end of a really dramatic episode of a Korean melodrama lol it’s why I love it so much.)

hebe – My Love (I know Cpop – for some odd reason – is pretty obscure compared to Jpop and Kpop but I think people are missing out on some good music. So, I’ve told myself from now on, when I do a ‘SOTM’ post, I’m going to post at least one Cpop video.)

KyaruPamyuPamyu – ピンポンがなんない (I wish I could say that her EP was amazing, but tbh it was a little underwhelming. I mean don’t get me wrong all the songs are catchy and I liked them, but overall it was average.)

AKB48 -飛べないアゲハチョウ(This song came on while I was driving today and for some reason it got stuck in my head. It’s never been an AKB song that I cared for, but for some reason I’m really loving it right now.)

Kanjani8 – I to U (Another group whose latest single is just too good. This is the second SOTM post in a row that I’ve posted a song from their new single lol. But it’s just really good. This has become my favorite song from the single…actually no. It’s become  my favorite Kanjani song period. No words to describe how much I love it.  /bawling in front of the computer again.)

SONGS OF THE MOMENT

plenty-ボクのために歌う吟 (I found out about this band literally three days ago. But the frontman’s voice entrances me. It’s very…high. But not in an annoying way. Not at all. Like I said, it’s very entrancing.  He also has a very androgynous look…which just made me even more intrigued by him…anyway, I really recommend you give them a try.)

.

Jeong JiWoon (member of  2AM) – 걸어온다 (Wow wow wow. JYP. You are not playing around. 2PM’s album, Miss A’s album, and now this? Seriously, everything that JYP’s artists have been putting out lately have been shitting on everybody else in Kpop right now. Even if you don’t listen to Kpop, find this single and download it. )

.

Dir en Grey – VANITAS (Only listened to a few songs so far from their new album, but I am loving what I’m hearing.)

.

Angela Aki -心の戦士

.

Rainie Yang – 仰望 (I didn’t even know she was coming out with a new album! This song is so beautiful. Oh Rainie, I love you so much. I need to catch up on her drama actually…)

.

Teen Top – First Kiss (I don’t even like Teen Top, but I really love this song…and I don’t even know why. Maybe because it gives me old school RnB vibes?)

.

Chris Brown – Next 2 You ft. Justin Beiber (Don’t judge me. I have come to love this fucking song. I even went and bought Chris Brown’s album yesterday because of it. His album is really good btw…just sayin’)

Idk why people say EunHyuk is ugly…I mean yeah he looks like a monkey when he smiles but he is super cute imo. I think he’s one of the top three as far as looks in Suju.

Yes, I saw the teaser for Mr. Simple (wtf is that title anyway?), even though I could care less about SUJU’s comeback (Especially after I saw those teaser photos…) I must say I am liking the jazzy feel the song has to it ( definitely different from the norm in Kpop)…

Someone tweeted GACKT and told him that Heechul said he was his favorite (I’m guessing his favorite Japanese artist) and he was like “who? which one?” Lol oh G. If Heechul really did say that though…that just gives me even more reason to like him (even though I don’t like Suju, I do love me some Heechul.)

DAY 06 – A SONG THAT REMINDS YOU OF SOMEWHERE

Ai De De Ti by Wang Lee Hom.

The album that this song is on (HEARTBEAT) was released around a time I was in San Antonio. I was obsessed with this song. And now every time I go to San Antonio I have to listen to it on the way there and while I’m there. It’s become my San Antonio theme song.

Much thanks to keyinjpop for pointing out that I forgot to do day 6 of this challenge. lol I’m so embarrassed.
