Hey guys, it's pretty late. According to my clock over here in the South-east it's a little over 9 p.m. Hope you guys had a good day! Anyway, today's Song of the Day is very specific. It's just one video that I found on YouTube when I felt like listening to some One Republic. So, today it is a One Republic song, just a cover of it. I absolutely love this video and you guys need to check it out, ok? Espceially if you like violin music or One Republic. I like both, obviously. It's an electric violin cover of the song 'Secrets' by-of course- One Republic. The guy that plays it is CRAZY talented and it's pretty insane. The link is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HrKHAsnkF8A. Seriously, look this guy up. I'm not trying to promote him for real or anything, I just think he sounds good and I like the song. I also listened to a cello version mash-up of 'Secrets' and 'Halo' by Beyonce, with the link here -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EfJtaDulVeA. This guy is really great. You can tell by the way he plays that he really has a passion for what he's doing. The song Secrets has been a favorite of mine for at least a few years. It always intrigued me how the included the cello and other string instruments into such a different type of music, and how it influenced them. The lyrics to all of their songs are inspirational and really mean something if you just listen. So, I hope you've had a good day and a good week, and I know the music description is a little short, but it's because I'm actually listening to the cello cover and before that I was listening to the violin cover, and I want to find more. I think I'll go listen to another electric violin song, definitely played by the same guy. So, do what you love like these guys and never lose that passion once you have it. Find what you love and don't let it go. Sarang hae to everyone, truly, and Good night depending on your clock.

Hello again. Sorry for the delay! My internet was down on the 29th, when I was going to post another page, and it didn't get up and running again until today. SO how've ya been? I've just been a little busy lately writing another book and since the interent was all screwy, you know. Stuff happens and whatnot. ANYWAY today's Song of the Day is one I wouldn't have ever really contemplated on posting here. I've never blogged about this genre of music, and never about this song. I'm sorry, but it was stuck in my head a few days ago, so that means Song of the Day material. Without further impatience, today's Song is. . . . 'Sexy back' by none other than Justin Timberlake. Weird, right? See, I'm not even a fan of Justin Timberlake, and this song is pretty old, so why the freak was it stuck in my head?? Well, I was watching a video on YouTube with some of my favorite Kpop people in it-of course- and they put on Sexy back and started dancing to it like idiots. Since then that song was stuck in my head for at least 2 days. I haven't looked up the 'official' music video or the lyrics or anything, I just keep going back to that video. I'm pretty sure none of you would want to watch it though, since it's just some Korean guys in a radio station being funny. If you want you can look up the video though! Sing along, dance to it, whatever. Just. . . . Don't hurt yourself. Ah crap. Now that I'm typing about the song, it's stuck in my freaking head again. Time to watch the video for the thousandth time!! Ok, so I'm gonna go do that, you guys have a nice day and a great week. Once again this month's sun sign is the emotional Cancer. Have fun everyday, do what you love, and always have hope for whatever dream you're chasing. Sarang hae to everyone and Good night depending on your clock!

Hello hello everyone. Today I figured I'd go into a little Kpop. If you guys didn't know already, I freaking LOVE Kpop. It mostly dominates my music world right now, so today's song will be a Kpop song. Actually, right now I'm listening to a Kpop song (Mirotic by TVXQ! which is not the song of the day). Anyway, SONG OF THE DAY TIME. Today's song of the day is 'No other' by (my favorite) Super Junior. These guys are really great. They are the first Kpop group I ever listened to, and the first one I liked. They are still my favorite!! If you're a Kpop lover too, you know all about having a bias. It's that one guy, or multiple guys, in the group that you like the most. Mine changes a lot, but at the moment I like Siwon who has been my bias for a while, and Eunhyuk, who is an amazing dancing machine. If you don't like Kpop or don't really know what it is, you probably don't have a clue what I'm talking about, so let's conitnue. This song was made somewhere in 2010, but is still a hit among Super Junior's songs. They tend to do many love songs and this is one of them. It has a light and upbeat sound and their melodic voices easily get stuck in your head. The style of the beat changes from a nice chorus harmony to a high note solo (sung by the #1 singer of the group, the youngest, Kyuhyun) and intertwines with a rap. I know that you guys don't know Korean, so you won't understand the words, but the point here is that it sounds REALLY good. If it makes you feel better you can look up the English translation. SO you guys should look up the video! YouTube: Super junior No Other music video. Click play, sit back, and enjoy the music. . . .Or, in my case, sing along in Korean words you don't understand and dance around like an idiot. Whatever works for you! As I've said before, this month's sun sign is Cancer. I know this is a little long, but I hope you enjoy my reviews. If you don't. . .then. . .well. . .ANYWAY, Sarang Hae to everyone and Good night depending on your clock!!

Hey! Once again, it's been a long time. I know that no one is reading my blog or anything like that, but I still kind of like typing these things out. I still hate that these posts have become fewer and far between though. Sorry about that! Anyway, today's song of the day will be 'Paradise' by Coldplay. It probably seems a little weird that a Kpop maniac like me likes coldplay and classical music (which I have mentioned here before), but I just seem to enjoy a lot of different types. Actually, I like One republic, Evanescence, Need to Breath, The wanted, Adele, Vivaldi, and many other types. Each on of those artists belong to a different genre of music, all of which are ones that I really like. But that isn't really the point right now, is it? Anyway, the song Paradise has a nice flow to it and the singer has one of those light and unique voice that has a little bit of roughness in it. It also has an edge of mystery to it, which I love in music. The music that goes along with the words has a nice piano lead. I love piano music, by the way. If you pay attention to the words (if you don't, it's ok. Sometimes I don't either! It can be to difficult, so I just sit back and enjoy the sound. And it doesn't hurt to dance a little, too) you will find that they hold a lot of meaning. I'm not going to break it all down, because that would be too boring. Just listen closely and try to find your own meaning in it. Above all, be unique and be yourself, especially where music is concerned. Find what you like, and find what you don't, it doesn't matter. It could be heavy metal or a piano concerto. Hey, maybe even both! Just as long as you like it and it's something that sounds good to you. Well, I hope you've all had a good day today! This month's sun sign, which started June 21st, is Cancer. Sarang Hae to everyone, and Good Night depending on your clock!!

Hey everyone! It has been a long time since I've blogged. . . .I guess I missed it too. As requested, today's Song of the Day is 'Lights' by Ellie Goulding. I'm listening to it right now for the first time, and its pretty good. She sounds British. . .She's British right?? Her voice is pretty clear. It sounds really good!! The beat is very good and strong, too. I like this song! I really like this kind of music, the kind that sounds inspiring and light. It just makes you feel bright and mysterious because it just has that kind of sound or air to it, right? You should really look it up!!! YouTube: Ellie Goulding Lights. GO FOR IT PEOPLE!! I strongly encourage you to GET UP AND DANCE. Have fun everyday and do what makes you happy. I hope you all are having a good day, and if you're not, do something that makes you happy. Lately I've been seeing people (including me...) doing things to make other people happy. Don't get me wrong, its good to do things for other people, as long as you don't forget that you have needs and wants too. So finish your homework, help your parents, do whatever you HAVE to do. Then go do something YOU WANT to do. Its been a rough couple of weeks, and I hope it has been easier on you guys. This month's Sun Sign is Gemini. I've been reading this book called 'Suzi's Sun Signs' or something like that, and it has TONS of information about all the sun signs. I'm a Leo actually, sometimes a Cancer depending on the chart, so basically both. Go look up your own Sun Sign! You might just find out a little bit more about yourself, and more importantly, everyone else. Sarang Hae and good night depending on your clock.

Hallo!!! Ok, I guess I should do this Song of the Day thingy every 2 days. . . .I'm getting kinda busy, moving and all. Ok, today's song of the day will be. . . . .Um. . .How about Rumor has it by Adele?? It's a good song!. . . .Ok, I just looked up the music video and I don't think there is an actual OFFICIAL official one. So, I guess LYRICS it is!! You guys should be able to figure out how to get to the lyrics, right? Good. This song is really great. Adele is actually one of my favorite singers in the ENTIRE universe and BEYOND. Her voice is really unique, and I've never heard one like it. Yes, yes, she's British. I think 'We are young' was the only American song that I've ever talked about, except that Vivaldi piece I mentioned a few days ago. Anyway, look it up, listen to it, enjoy!! Sarang hae to everyone and Good Night depending on your clock!! Even though its not EVEN close to night time for me, over here in the SOUTH EAST!!! Yeah, I wish I was in California too. . . .Anyway, Sarang Hae!!!! ^-~

Hey everyone. Yesterday did not have a song of the day because there wasn't a new song that was stuck in my head or sounded really good to me. Today's Song of the Day will, oddly enough, be Spring by Vivaldi. Yep, you heard it right: Classical music. I know a lot of people are like "Ugh, WTF? You like that classical crap??" Like I said, I love all kinds of music as long as it sounds good, and this does. I've always had a passion for classical pieces like this one. It reminds me of elegance, simplicity, and lots of other confusing stuffs. Anyway, I hope you enjoy it if you actually think about looking it up. I wouldn't be surprised if you all didn't, but it's good relaxation music. YouTube has a nice selection of Vivaldi's work, but I looked up: the 4 seasons Vivaldi. If you don't like it, tell me, if you do like it, tell me that too. And if you don't know what I'm talking about but have something you want to know, comment on it and I will try my best to answer! Sarang Hae to everyone and Good Night depending on your clock!! (0>0)
