More Than Words – 5tion (MV)

Going back in time for a Kpop song. And if you are a Super Junior fan, I bet you’ve seen them sing this song. That is actually how I got to know this song.

It’s from a group called 5tion (pronounced Oh-tion) and it’s More Than Words (not to be confused with the song sung by Extreme).

More Than Words (MV)

More Than Words (Live)

They were a popular boy group way back 2001 when long haired guys and baggy jeans were the trend. They had a few songs, but I think this was the most famous among them, famous that some idol groups has rendered their own version in different programs.  And one of those group is Super Junior, particulary Leeteuk, Sungmin and Donghae.. Check out this video (before it gets removed)

I like the beat of the song, truly a song the early 2000s. It sounds like a song the boybands from the 90s would sing. And because I love the songs of the 90s, I had a natural reaction to the song~~ I liked it!

If you want the lyrics of the song, click on these links…

Hangeul / Romanization / English

And if you’re curious what happened to the group, they have disbanded in 2006/2007. But just last year, 3 of the members got back together, still using the name 5tion. They came back as ballad singers, minus the rap. They still sound good though. Hope they make it big again!

Go Jay Chou!!! (Back to the Past MV)

Earlier today I watched Green Hornet on IMAX!!! And I have to say this is really Jay Chou‘s movie!!!

I’m a big fan of the TV series. I used to watch it when I was in elementary school. Our classes were in the afternoon, and on Wednesdays, it would be shown on TV. However, the film adaptation isn’t the same as the one i saw on TV. The Green Hornet didn’t do any butt kicking (pardon the word), instead it was all Kato who was doing it. But I think it’s a good thing that happened, for this is Jay Chou’s big break in HOLLYWOOD!!! And this movie screamed Kato all throughout!!! Go Kato!!!

Jay Chou is not new to movies, in fact he acted and even directed movies like Secret. This is probably my favorite Jay Chou movie! Oh and this is the one he directed. And mind you, this is his other job.. the other being a singer song-writer. He composes and writes most of the songs in his albums! This is guy is a genius!!!

Not long ago, I posted a video of his song Dao Xiang (Fragrance of Rice). That remains to be my favorite Jay Chou song. But today, I had to look for one that sounds pretty good, and one you could appreciate even without understanding it. And I decided on Back to the Past.

This is a bit of an old song, and as you see on the video, Jay looks a bit different from the way he looks now. But remember, this song was released in 2002 — so of course he looks different! This song was composed by himself, though the words was done by someone else. It’s a nice song… and it reminds me of the taiwanese songs from 5 years ago.. most of it sounds like this. Don’t get me wrong, I first fell in love with Mandarin songs before I did Kpop and Jpop.

I think Jay looks better now, compared to before. He was skinny. But at that time skinny guys and long haired guys were the trend. The actress in the video looks familiar.. just couldn’t place her.. if you knew then leave a comment to enlighten me ^_^

Hope we can see more of him on the Hollywood scene!

Go Jay Chou!!! kk ^_^

Back It Up – Jewelry (MV)

Jewelry has made it’s come back with the song Back It Up.

Though Seo In Young and Park Jung Ah have left the group to pursue their solo careers, they have recruited 2 new members, and one of them reminds me so much of Raina (from T-ara).

Their new song has quite a catchy tune. It must be a trend in Korea these days, as this song sounds similar (but not exactly the same) with Shy Boy. It has the 60’s feel to it with a new hint to it. One think that caught my attention with their dance routine is when they jump and land with their heels! You go girls!!

Just saw their Mnet performance today and they did good. Though it’s kind of weird seeing two different girls singing. For me I think it needs some getting used to. When I saw their performance, I suddenly missed Seo In Young.

Well anyways, congrats to the girls for their comeback!

Heaven Know (This Angel Has Flown) – Orange and Lemons

This is a song reminiscent of when I was in college! And even to this day, I still like to listen to it.

It’s called Heaven Knows (This Angel Has Flown) by Orange and Lemons.

Orange and Lemons have disbanded already but I was a fan when they were hitting the airwaves in the Philippines. I loved their style as they were not like the common popular bands at that time. Their music had the influence of Beatles and the bands from the 60’s. The first time I heard their song made me think twice if they were Filipino or not!! I think that’s why I liked them at that time. The words in their songs were also very deep and well thought of.

This is my favorite songs among all the songs they’ve released. I like it because of the melody, simple and subtle and sounds like a song you would hear from the 1960s. The words are nice and a little romantic. At that time, the clipping of the angels wings to make her mine made me swoon! ahahaha. The video though is simple, not really sure about the concept though… 🙂

Will also be posting the lyrics to this song ^_^

Heaven Knows (This Angel Has Flown)

There are times when I’m lying in my bed
How I bellow and cry from this stupid get
And my eyes are like windshields on a rainy day
Almost rubbed down, swelling, as I keep on
Dipping my face in these cold hands of mine
Heaven knows how bitter I am

Chorus
‘Cause this angel has flown away from me
Leaving me in drunken misery
I should have clipped her wings and made her mine
For all eternity
Now this angel has flown away from me
Thought I had the strength to set her free
Did what I did because I love her so
Will she ever find her way back home to me
Aah…

I’m so tired, I feel like catching forty winks
Being up all night in this elbow room
That puts me in a trance
Where hopes and dreams come true
Now my lips are burning and my eyes are hurting
From this fumes I mixed till I light another
Cigarette just to pass my time, oh
Heaven knows how embittered I am

(Repeat chorus)

I truly miss the old OPM bands… at the moment, I’m too sad as I am seeing some very good bands disband. Hope OPM bands would rule the airwaves again!!!

Each Other’s Way (旅の途中) – Exile (MV)

I’m going Japanese these days!!!

And this MV is fresh! Real fresh as this single has not yet been released! This will be released in Feb. 9.

It’s the new single of Exile, called Each Other’s Way (旅の途中).

Exile has been there for the longest time!! ahahaha and this is what makes me amazed about Japanese boybands— they last for so long… Arashi and SMAP are some examples. Though some or even most of the members have their own solo projects, they manage to stay together… and I think that is the real teamwork!

Japanese songs these days are really good!! Unlike last year… but this is the kind of Japanese music that I like!! A song that you can dance too but at the same time it could pass off as a ballad song. I just love listening to Exile songs!! Be it a ballad or dance songs. ^_^

Forever – Monkey Majik (MV)

I love love love Monkey Majik!!! They’re my kind of music!

This is the most beautiful song and PV (they call it PV or promotional video in Japan) of the group. It’s called Forever.

This PV is beautiful because instead of the group singing they have contracted special people to do the singing. I love the concept of people coming together and singing. The lyrics of the song is a very touching one and it’s not just the romantic kind of love but it’s love in general — romantic, parental, friendly… all kinds of love that exists in the world!! ^_^

For the unfamiliar, the group is from Japan and they are composed 2 Canadian brothers and 2 Japanese men. Both the Canadian brothers are fluent in Japanese mind you, so when you listen to their song, you seem to hear a native singing. To me I love the husky and mellow voice of the singer. His voice would fit a rock band but at the same time it one you would love to hear singing a ballad… i would like to call it the best of both worlds. They have had several hits in Japan and I recommend them if your experimenting on listening to a Japanese rock ballad.

In the PV you would hear several people sing it… but this is the Monkey Majik version of the song:

And of course I want to share the lyrics to the song…

Forever (Romanization)

It’s a beautiful world
Sora ni tabi ni de you
You know it feels right
Yabureta chizute ni shite
Tomatta sekai ugokasu… kotae

I’ve got you, you’ve got me
Yorisotte
Sono hoshi no hate made
Doko made mo together
Yasashiku aoku

(Uh, hey!)
The way that you walk
The way that you talk
Seasons will change
Kids get new names
‘FAME’ it’s just another couple saying
We should try to go and better ourselves
Well at the end of the day
All you see is yourself
Awatenaide, I look in the mirror realize
Just a glance will paralyze
And convince you otherwise
The contentment that you knew
I’m guilty of it, too
Owari no nai, tabi mada mada tsudzuku

[PV version:
What a wonderful world
Ai wo sagashi ni
Kodoku to jiyuu poketto ni tsumete
Awatenaide I’m just gonna keep the pace
Cause I’m learnin’ all the time
I need you by my side]

Okizari ni shita mama no negai
Kimi to iu na no hikari
Terashite

Loving you forever
Utsukushiku kagayaku
I’ve got you, you’ve got me

Doko made mo together
Yasashiku aoku

Ima futari ga hitotsu ni natte

[PV: Always will you be in my heart]
Always be with me together

Forever (English Translation)

It’s a beautiful world
Let’s fly away into the sky
You know it feels right
With a worn out map as our guide
Tryin’ to move a world that’s stopped we’re searching for…the answer

Looking like the moon
Cold and sad’s as it seems to be
Feeling down and out
Won’t you come and shine on me
You’re the perfect light of my life
Shining brightly

Loving you forever
Shine so beautiful and brightly
I’ve got you
You’ve got me
Holding each other
From the world’s end to another
No matter where we go together
Tenderly into the blue

Uh, hey
The way that you walk
The way that you talk
Seasons will change
Kids get new names
“Fame” is just another cover saying
We should try to go and better ourselves
Well at the end of the day
All you see is yourself
So settle down now go look in the mirror realize
Just a glance will paralyze
and convince you otherwise
The contentment that you knew
I’m guilty of it, too
It’s not over yet, our journey will still continue on

[PV version:
What a wonderful world
Looking all around for love
I’ve filled my pocket up with freedom and loneliness
So settle down now I’m just gonna keep the pace
Cause I’m learnin’ all the time
I need you by my side]

All those wishes there just as we left them behind
You’re the perfect light of my life
Shining on me

Loving you forever
Shine so beautiful and brightly
I’ve got you
You’ve got me
Holding each other
From the world’s end to another
No matter where we go together
Tenderly into the blue

Now the two of us are becoming just as one
The world is turning round and round

Loving you forever
Shine so beautiful and brightly
I’ve got you
You’ve got me
Holding each other
From the world’s end to another
No matter where we go together
Tenderly into the blue

I just wanna live forever
La la la la
Always will come in my heart
[PV: Always will you be in my heart]
Always will we be together
Love one another
Always in my heart you’ll be

Forever (Kanji)

It’s a beautiful world
宇宙(そら)に旅に出よう
You know it feels right
破れた地図手にして
止まった世界動かす…答え

月のように
冷たくて悲しい
塞ぎ込んだ
Won’t you come and shine on me
キミと云う名の光
眩しく

Loving you forever
美しく輝く
I’ve got you
You’ve got me
寄り添って
その星の果てまで
どこまでも together
やさしく蒼く

Uh, hey
The way that you walk
The way that you talk
Seasons will change
Kids get new names
“FAME”is just another cover saying
We should try to go and better ourselves
Well at the end of the day
All you see is yourself
慌てないで go look in the mirror realize
Just a glance will paralyze
and convince you otherwise
The contentment that you knew
I’m guilty of it too.
終わりのない 旅まだまだ続く

[PV version:
What a wonderful world
愛を探しに
孤独と自由ポケットに詰めて
慌てないで I’m just gonna keep the pace
Cause I’m learnin’ all the time
I need you by my side]

置き去りにしたままの願い
キミと云う名の光
照らして

Loving you forever
美しく輝く
I’ve got you
You’ve got me
寄り添って
その星の果てまで
どこまでも together
やさしく蒼く

いま二人が一つになって
世界が廻りだす

Loving you forever
美しく輝く
I’ve got you
You’ve got me
寄り添って
その星の果てまで
どこまでも together
やさしく蒼く

I just wanna live forever
La la la la
Always will come in my heart

Always will we be together
Love one another
Always in my heart you’ll be

I totally love Monkey Majik!!

Haru Haru (Day by Day) – Kim Bo Kyung

No this is not a remake of the Big Bang song… I thought it was one when I saw the title. This is a very different song.

This song, Haru Haru is sung by Kim Bo Kyung.

Kim Bo Kyung is one of the contestants of Superstar K season 2. Superstar K is like the Korean equivalent of Americal Idol and this is produced by Mnet. She did not make it to the top 11 but she did make it to showbiz when she signed under Sony Music.

This girl has got the voice!! She became uber popular when she sang Because of You (originally by Kelly Clarkson) during the Grand Finals of Superstar K2. So popular that she recorded her own version of the song! And she can play the guitar!! And she can write songs.. I think she is a singer-songwriter in the making.. and I do hope she succeeds! I’m looking forward to more of her songs!

V.V.I.P – Seungri (Bigbang) [MV]

Now this is more like it! ahaha

This is the video of another track from Seungri‘s second solo album. It’s called V.V.I.P.

I love love the Alice in Wonderland concept of the video! And I like Seungri’s expression here because it’s different from Strong Baby. I love his fresh attitude and the way he smiles.. it fit the concept! I also like the tune of the video and the choreography. The beat of the song is something that fits him (I think). This song is GOOOOD!!! It’s one of those that you could listen to over and over again! Quite addicting!

If you watch the video closely, you may think you have seen the other Big Bang boys make an appearance (somewhere at 0:33). But look closely and study it closely… and tell me if that’s them! wahaha I had to do this maybe about three times! Spot the difference! ^_^

I posted the other video (What Can I Do) in another post.

Anyways congrats to Seungri for making a come back!

And Big Bang please make your come back fast!!! ^_^
