It’s Monday and you know what’s up…yup Jo’s Music Mondays!
Today’s music post will be La La La by Naughty Boy (ft Sam Smith). I’ve been listening to this song a lot lately and I really like it. So hope you guys like it as well.
I’ve decided to make every Monday “Jo’s Music Mondays” YEAH!!! 😀 It’s not what any of you guys are thinking. It’s just something I’ve always done, whether it was in my diary or not. And I thought long and hard about doing it here and I was like “Why not?!” As I said before, this blog is where I can talk about anything or do anything I want to. Soooooo here I am, writing my first ever “Jo’s Music Mondays” post and I’m so happy. Maybe I should make this blog my diary or something (ha-ha). Also, I hope that you guys will be able to learn a little bit about me through my music posts. I do like a lot of music and over time you guys will realize that I listen to almost any and everything.
Don’t judge my music taste!!
I decided to make Waiting For Love by Avicii my first “Jo’s Music Mondays“ post. I think this song was well written and well sung. I know a few people can and will relate to this song. So I hope you guys will like it just as I do 😀
Oh yeah, before I forget….there’s actually two videos for this song but I chose to post the lyric video instead because of the animation. Incase you wanna check out the original just look it up~
P.S: I wanna thank my friend abxtruthlies for doing the picture for me 🙂
WHAT IS THIS?!! WHAT?!! Jungkook you can come and arrest me anytime, whether I’m good or bad. How dare Rapmon and his lips!!! Give me some SUGA!! That hair is sooooo working for him. Speaking of hair, how freaking hot is Jimin with red hair?!! He is the definition of H.O.T! I hate doctors but Jin is making me question myself a little on that. Taehyung is always so adorable no matter what he’s doing and finally J-hope….I have no words right now. I needed to just say all that and get it out my system, moving on (ha-ha).
I can’t recall how many times I kept clicking the replay button on this MV since it came out. This song is one of my favorite on the album besides I NEED YOU. For me personally, the dance was the best part of the video…I’m not saying that the whole video was crappy and that the dance saved it. The video was actually good and our boys did their best with what they had. I really like the whole occupation concept and it’s nice seeing the boys having fun with it. The lyrics were very meaningful and lets not forget the saxophone in the background!!! I swear I have this crazeee thing for instruments.
With the third mini album, The Most Beautiful Moment in Life/Mood For Love pt.1, the boys have definitely caught the attention of many people across the globe. I love that this concept shows that the ‘boys’ are now MEN.
The album consist of 9 tracks:
01. Intro: 화양연화 (Most Beautiful Moment in Life)
02. I NEED YOU
03. 잡아줘 (Hold Me Tight)
04. SKIT: Expectation!
05. 쩔어 (DOPE/SICK)
07. Converse High
08. 이사 (Move)
09. Outro: Love is Not Over
If you haven’t listen to the album as yet, please check it out. All the tracks are really good, plus this time all the members took part in the songwriting. Awesomeness!!
Anyways, I hope you enjoy the video and is spazzing as much as I did. 😀
ONE OK ROCK is a Japanese rock band that was formed in 2005. Consisting of the four members: Takahiro Morita (lead vocals), Toru Yamashita (guitars, backing vocals), Ryota Kohama (bass guitar) and Tomoya Kanki (drums, percussion).
Why the sudden talk about them? Well that’s because I’ve been listening to my collection of Japanese Music and ONE OK ROCK‘s Mighty Long Fall started playing. I’ve been a huge fan of them since forever. And it’s rare to find a band where you can’t help but love all their songs. Now for those who don’t know, Mighty Long Fall was the theme song of Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno (2014 film).
2. Take Me to the Top
3. Cry Out
5. Mighty Long Fall
9. Paper Planes ft Kellin Quinn
10. Good Goodbye
11. One by One
12. Stuck in the Middle
13. Fight the Night
I took my time and listen to each song when it was released well I tried to but i kept spazzing like crazy. For me, Take Me to the Top was one of the best song. It started off with powerful guitars (I’m a girl who goes crazy over guitars so you could just imagine how I was dying while listening to this) and drums with Taka’s awesome vocals. At one point I thought of Linkin Park because of the “screamo” and I’m not complaining at all. I’m a sucker for these things. There are one or two songs where ONE OK ROCK does a little screamo but this one right here, OH GAWD!!! The guitar solo- no words right now. The catchiest song on the album for me was Cry Out.
One by One had me throwing myself all over the place (ha-ha) which earned me a few stares. I really love this one. Ballads like Heartache and Good Goodbye was amazing, they totally lifted the album. The way Taka smoothly sung those high notes in Heartache was just amazing. These two songs are mostly on replay for me.
Paper Planes is a collaboration with Sleeping With Sirens‘ vocalist, Kellin Quinn. Being a huge fan of both bands my expectation was pretty high for this one. However, the song felt completely different. I don’t know if it’s in a good or bad way but I just…I don’t know. Honestly, I was expecting like this amazing mind blowing song but the song sounded kind of messy. I’m not saying that this band or that band isn’t good but it just didn’t fit well with ONE OK ROCK. As always the instrument was good (oh gawd the guitar).
I know I’ve been going on about the guitars 😂 I don’t hate drums, in fact I love drums so with the song Decision we get the chance to hear more of the drums. It was so captivating I honestly forgot the guitars 😨 This song was actually released last year along with Mighty Long fall as a single. They are both awesome tracks so I’m really happy that they decided to add them on this album.
Overall, the album was really good and is worth the listen. I could go on and on about the songs but I think I’d end up writing a book. Also, if you’ve been following them since The Beginning (see what I did there 😉 ) you’ll see how much they’ve improved proud fan I tell you. ONE OK ROCK is definitely gaining more popularity not only within Japan but outside as well. I wish them all the best and I can’t wait to see what else they have in store for us.
I strongly recommend you listen to this band, you’ll end up loving them as much as I do. Stay away from Taka he belongs to me!!
Happy listening!!! 😄
Today, my friend made me watch the music video of Hilary Duff‘s Sparks. When it comes to certain music, I tend to only listen to the audio rather than watching the MV. For me, American music videos tend to just show the same thing over and over, it kinda gets boring. Well except for Sia, Ed Sheeran etc. but I think you get the idea.
First of all, according to several sources, Sparks, from the fifth album: Breathe In, Breathe Out, was written and produced by Christian “Bloodshy” Karlsson and Peter Thomas along with the help of Ebba Tove Elsa Nilsson and Sam Shrieve, and co-production from Svidden. The song was released April 7, 2015 by RCA Records, third single of the album.
Hilary Duff came out with All About You and Chasing the Sun last year, and I really enjoyed them. But now with her new catchy pop song, Sparks, I felt like she really did it this time. She was dancing, singing and hanging out with her girls. For those who didn’t know, there are actually two music videos for her song, Sparks. The first video below is the original one.
Then, there’s the second music video that was “demanded” by fans who wanted to see the full MV without the whole Tinder stuff. I honestly prefer this version, since you get to see the full video with the dance as well as getting the chance to hear the words of the song more than in the original. My friend didn’t like the song at all but she did love the MV since it screamed K-Pop and I have to agree with her. I did get the whole K-Pop vibes while watching it. I really love the new look, she be rocking that blue-green kinda silver hair or is it grey and doing ’em choreographed moves. I love it!!
Also for those who don’t know what Tinder is, let me educate you a little. Tinder is a dating app that allows its user to interact with their matches. Tinder was created by Joe Munoz, Whitney Wolfe, Justin Mateen, Sean Rad, Chris Gylczynski and Jonathan Badeen and was released on September 12, 2012.
If you want in depth information about the app, feel free to do your own research people. Also, no i don’t use the app (ha-ha).
