[Music Monday] Mr Taxi/Bad Girl – Girls’ Generation

Because we all need a earworm to kickstart the week! Plus, Monday is the only day in the week that starts with M. I’ll try to post non-Kpop songs occasionally :P

I seem to be getting pretty nostalgic recently. Hehe.

But yes! The choice for Music Monday today is chosen cos this song popped up on my iPod touch and it got me watching all the old MVs of the girls again. And also, reminded me of how K-Pop kicked me out of the super low mood (credits to Super Junior!).

SO! Mr Taxi! This is the first original Japanese songs from the girls! There’s some Korean words mixed into the song which is kind of cool.

And the dance! It has to be one of my favorite (out of their Japanese songs). The others that I like equally would probably be “Bad Girl” and “Animal”. Oh, heck it! I will throw in “Bad Girl” as well (:

I think “Bad Girl” is not as well known as the other of their Japanese songs. Or maybe it’s just me. I think “Bad Girl” was released around the same time as “The Great Escape” which I totally don’t like back then (now, I don’t mind it). 

But yeah. “Bad Girl” has Oppa-Yuri! HAHAHAH! Poor Yoona’s line in the song was, “Oh yeah~” only. Really sad! Girls look awesome though!

Can you see how much I miss having dance class? ;p I am concentrating so much on the dances of the songs today! HAHAHAH! But yeah. Hopefully the girls will have a comeback soon! Or maybe classes for either Mr Taxi or Bad Girl will open up at Celine Jessandra? *hopeful* I can’t believe I actually dismissed the dance classes for these 2 songs back then.

But yeah. That’s all from me this week. Going to try and imitate some moves while listening to the songs now. Hehe.

[Music Monday] Henry – Trap

Because we all need a earworm to kickstart the week! Plus, Monday is the only day in the week that starts with M. I’ll try to post non-Kpop songs occasionally :P

Started the dance classes for Trap on Saturday. I’ll be taking 2 classes back-to-back for 2 Saturdays! 미쳤어! But on the (not-so) bright side, Galaxy Supernova is ending this coming Saturday. I can’t feel my legs. My legs are aching! But it’s a good kind of ache. Nothing like workout ache.

Anyways! Back to Trap! It’s the debut song for Super Junior M’s Henry (: Henry has a bit of Justin Bieber feel to be honest. Minus the rude attitude and self-entitlement. He’s really talented too! He plays several instruments, writes songs and dances well!

To lend some star power to his debut, Taemin from SHINee and Kyuhyun from Super Junior took part in the song too. It’s almost like a maknae collaboration ;p

Trap has a hippyty-hoppy-ish kind of feel and is about a guy wanting to forget about a girl. Yawn. Regular music fodder really. But hey! The piano intro at the beginning is awesome and Henry/Taemin/Kyuhyun’s vocals are amazing. Though I won’t recommend you watching the performances with just Henry alone. His voice gets a bit whiney by the time the 4-minute song ends. Honestly, his voice is more suited for acoustic songs. Love love the acoustic version of 1-4-3 (maybe I should introduce that next).

Alrighty! Here’s the debut performance-

When I signed up for the dance class, I thought it’s gonna be a breeze. Loads of posing, loads of walking around. WRONG. It’s actually my nemesis. Hip-hop-ish, contemporary-ish dance *gasp* The last time I took something like that, I gave up by the 4th lesson. HAHAHA! But I am determined not to give up this time cos….Well, I am unemployed so I need to make my course fee count! ;p

No particular favorite part of the lyrics. I like this song because of the performance and the 3 guys. Lyrics wise…Nah. Not so much.

So yups! That’s it this week (: Till next time!
