Part V of my favorite songs of 2011.
So this can’t really apply to me for this challenge, being that I’m focusing on Asian music only and I live in the U.S. where they play no Jpop/Kpop/Cpop etc so I’m going to post a song by an Asian pop artist who tried it out in the U.S. and whose song I actually did hear on the radio…which is,
Come Back to Me by Utada Hikaru
When she first released this single, I honestly did wonder if I would ever hear her song on the radio (because I truly felt it was radio friendly and had the potential to be a big hit) and lo and behold, I was driving in the car with my cousin to Lafayette and it came on…I almost made her get into a car accident I screamed so loud lol.
I’m still pressed that that single (and album) didn’t do as well as I felt it could have.
Choosing this was incredibly hard. I went into this not thinking of how many plays of certain songs I have on my iPod or what song is currently stuck in my head. I simply sat for a few minutes and just wrote down ten songs that I couldn’t imagine ever listening to again, and then I listened to those ten songs, and came to the conclusion that my favorite song is Be My Last by Utada Hikaru.
I can’t really explain why this particular song is my favorite…there are songs with better lyrics and with better melodies but for some reason it gives me goosebumps every time I hear it.
Why don’t I have any Hikki gifs?…
