The Best of Random Venus’ Childhood

Howdy!

My weekly list has been in a little hiatus.

The past few months has been a challenge for me. But I’ll soon get the hang of everything.. the language, the lifestyle and all that. But here I am sitting in front of the computer and just reminiscing the good old childhood days- blame my two wave mates who are huge fans of Mariah Carey and Christina Aguilera. 😉

They’d say you don’t have a good childhood if you don’t know Spice Girls, Christina Aguilera and all the best of the 90’s and 2000’s era. Well… I would STRONGLY AGREE! haha!

My childhood was amazing! I was a Scary Spice wannabe then.  Brian Mcfadden was my dream boy, until I met Aaron Carter. 😀 And I think I could still do the dance steps from some of Britney’s MVs. Chos! 😛

Here are the top picks that when played never fail to bring back the amazing young-er years:

And my very favorite…

And yes, I could still memorize the lyrics… and some of the dance steps of Genie in a bottle. haha!

If only my whole childhood playlist could fit in one entry, but of course I don’t want to stress you guys out with all of them. So let me just share my top 5 then. 😀

What’s your favorite childhood playlist?

Fall in Love all over again with 2ne1’s latest single!

A big come back after a year of being held up? Probably not… yet! But wait for it…

YG Entertainment has announced that 2ne1 will have its single releases starting July to October of this year. And the new single “Falling In Love” is dropped to get the insane-hopefully-awesome releasing started before the big album!

The MV and the song is really cool- to start off. Allow me to enumerate what I love about this new single and probably point what I don’t like but not really hate, eh? 😉

Here we go…

The MV: I super love the cool summer inspired of the music video! And do I have to mention how good looking and charming our favorite girls are in those summer-inspired outfits keeping their fierceness while showing off their sort-a innocent charms? Or do I really make sense in pointing this out?  😀

The SONG:  The Reggae-influenced song is really cool! It added a new taste and twist to the usual genre and singing style of the girls. I just love the beat and the song as a whole. This definitely reminds me of summer!

Only a thing that I don’t like about the song,is how they made Dara’s voice too much of auto-tune. ;( l I like how they were able to keep their style but I don’t feel like liking the auto-tune on Dara’s lines. I don’t hate it either. There’s a difference between un-liking and hating it. Okay? 😉

Nevertheless, I’m still falling in love to this song! The fans are really looking forward to these monthly releases and the album. Exciting? Yes? Of course it is! 🙂

KElectroPop Favorite: Humming Urban Stereo

Electro Pop music has its very addicting vibe.  And Humming Urban Stereo isn’t just some other indie artist!

 

hummingurbanstereo

This Korean Electro Pop artist is surprisingly a band, though it only consist of Lee Jeereen who’s talent to music is outstanding, and some random female guest vocals who’s voices are too sweet it blends well to Lee’s arrangements.

Humming Urban Stereo is founded by Lee Jeereen in 2004. The most common vocals and is considered part of the band is Shina-E. Humming girl also was part of the band before she left to study in Japan and died in March 2012.

I met this band somewhere 2011 and got easily hooked with their songs especially Baby Love, Banana Shake and Hawaiian Couple. And now these songs represents my other blog (Dear Crush) as the perk-me-up-make-me-fall-in-love-all-over-again songs.

Here are my top favorites:

LOVE JAM is from the 4th and most recent Album: SPARKLE which was released in November 2012.

BABY LOVE [Album: Baby Love in February 2009]

HAWAIIAN COUPLE [Album: Purple Drop in March 2006]

BANANA SHAKE [Album: Very very Nice! And Short Cake in January 2005]

지랄 (Ji-Ral) (Okay, English totally says this is somewhat a swear: “BS”. And reading the translations gives the title more sense. Click here to read the English Trans.) [Album: Baby Love in February 2009 ]

Lee Min Ho: My Everything 1st Debut Album Released!

Korean Superstar Lee Min Ho released his first debut album on May 24, 2013. This is due to popular demand. The fans had been requesting him to release an album since he started singing on tours and some shows.

Answering to his fans desire, Lee Min Ho released an album entitled My Everything. This didn’t honestly surprise me, because he released singles in the past: My Everything in 20009 and Extreme for Cass 2X Beer Commercial in the same year .

The album contains 7 tracks including the song My Everything. This album is dedicated of course to his fans. JPopAsia said: “The actor’s new album serves as fan service rather than a serious attempt to debut as a singer.” Though it’s more like JUST FOR FANS and not to seriously get into the music industry, Lee Min Ho DIDN’T JUST sing. The actor (now a recording artist) worked with Korean Producer Hwang Chan Hee who has worked with various artists. And I must admit, I like the album as a whole:  the reason behind the release and the track listing.

I can also say that the album contains different genres. He didn’t just focus on Pop and Ballad. My favorite, Pieces of Love has a rock-ish element on it. On his song My Everything, his vocals sounds different to my ears. What I mean by different is, it got better. Except that I prefer how he pronounced MY EVERYTHING before.  But pronunciation don’t matter because for fans this release means a lot (like A LOT) to them.

What’s next for Lee Min Ho? Dance Floor heart-throb?  We could hardly tell.

But what’s in? For this year, Min Ho will have an Asian Tour, and it includes Philippines! No wonder my sister is saving up again. Seems like they didn’t have enough (and will never get enough) of Lee Min Ho after his Manila visit last November 2012 for #GlobalBenchSetter.
