Lu Xiao Yu (Secret OST- Jay Chou)

It’s been a while!

I’ve been learning Lu Xiao Yu (Rain) from Jay Chou’s movie “Secret”.

Saw the movie with my sis 7 years ago, wow time surely flies. There are many great pieces in that film, most famous is the “Time Travel” piece.

I’ve never paid attention to Lu Xiao Yu before until I heard PianoMike play it two weeks ago.

I’m just mesmerized by the romantic and solemn melody and decided to share. 🙂

The heavenly duo that is “Akdong Musician”

It is unlikely for me to review musicians, I’ll make an exception for this unlikely duo who moved me into writing about them.

The duo is called Akdong Musician (AkMu)

So, I was tuning in to MCountdown on MNET while browsing my smartphone. I wasnt really paying attention. It was the EXO comeback episode, but the show was dull, no new sound, artists were just re-making tunes from past popular tracks from hit idols so it was pretty bland. I’m not gonna sugarcoat things, it is what it is.

Then while on tumblr I heard the MC introduce the next performers and a smooth rap came next.

The song that got me was “200%”. The rapper had that smooth playful tone then when the girl’s voice came I was like: who are they???

They’re Akdong Musician, a duo from a contest who were signed by YG Entertainment. There are a million golden voices in the world but this girl is freaking amazing! I want to share her voice even if that sounded totally weird.

Don’t care for YG. I’m a fan of jpop, kpop, french music and western. I’m tellin you guys these two are extra special.

Akdong Musician album is jam packed!

They are unconventional yet their music is heavenly which makes them special. A mix of rap and r&b/pop yet something else.

All the songs in their Album displays lightness and color yet emotions and smoothness.

On stage they aren’t the kind who will play cute and compensate for lack of talent. Your eyes and ears will love them. Listening to them is lik listening to musical instruments being played perfectly.

Check them out. No matter if you’re a teenager or grandparents of teenagers you’ll love them.

They’re no hot and sexy girl groups or pheromone dynamites sexual hunks, but if you’re into quality, original music, you’ll love them.

🙂 I know it’s kind of late to be doing a cover on this piece (why did I just do it now?!) but I still did it! Simple yet powerful, my favorite piece at the moment.
