Music Monday: Empty

Music Monday



Even though this song popped up on the radio and not on my iPod I still think it counts.

Winner was one of those groups that I would hear about an not really think anything of. I had heard about them being on the same label as Big Bang and I knew that they were in (what I thought at the time) was an American –Idol like competition…. I was totally not interested, and (like I always say, and ALWAYS end up being wrong) I didn’t have room for another group  But one day I was bored and looking for something to keep ,me occupied so I wouldn’t fall asleep and YouTube came to my rescue with WiNNER TV. I figure I would watch one episode and if I didn’t like it I would move on to something else. These guys are absolute dorks and I couldn’t stop watching. I don’t have a bias with this group (because they are all bias ruiners), but I do have a really soft spot for Dumb and Dumber; serious how can you not love a guy who does the most perfect impression of Kim Woo Bin’s brow lift or the guy who comes in a very close second to Daesung’s evil mother portrayal in the “Secret Garden” parody.

Actually a few days go I finally decided that I wanted to watch Who Is Next: WIN and I have to say I tonally get why people felt so strongly about Team B (iKON). I thought that all the performances where good, but (even though I knew the outcome ahead of time) I still think that Team B were “technically” better dancers, Team A’s were better song writers (even though Team B’s finale performance was phenomenal) … and I finally get the hype.


I  really like this song, and actually I was surprised when I found out that this song was written by B.I and Bobby  (although I shouldn’t be all that shocked) because I didn’t think it was an “iKon” kind of song.. but whatever a good song is a good song. I really like this video, I think this one and Color Ring really bring home to “model” concept that they were going for with this album The only problem that I have with the video is the how small the female lead is, the first time I saw the video /I said “holy cow” she’s thin, honestly I don’t think I’ve ever seen a thigh gap that wide before….


I’m an empty shell,
a coward without you
People around me look at me with pity
It kills me, no what a day
Before starting my day, without thinking I saw…

“Empty” can be found on Winner’s latest album  2014 S/S on iTunes and Spotify



I’m looking forward to iKON’s debut album and WINNERs second album this year (that is if YG keeps his promises……)



Until Next Time….

Music Monday: Ringa Linga

This Music Monday is a  tad different,  not only am I no where near my computer or iPod, I’m in the hospital (ICU) recovering from surgery due  to a bleeding complication from a minor surgery I had on Tuesday, so formatting will be minimal (I’m posting from my  phone)…So let’s get it in shall we?

I’m picking this song because it’s totally making me feel better (plus it’s my ringtone… and I’ve decided name new carry after him [not that I’m obsessed, but b his stage name goes well with my cats Tsuki (moon)… so this week’s not  so radom pick for Music Monday is Taeyang ‘ s Ringa Linga.

This song gets me up and dancing every single time.  Yet the video confuses the hell of of me. Does Ji Young need to be in the video?  Not as far as I can see..  You wanna show someone some love give Dae Sung some love ( he’s like a smiling mushroom). Plus I love that members of IKON and Winner (Lee Sueng Hoon) can dance his butt off) are in it.

So I got into Taeyang when his first mini album came out. I knew he was in a larger group,  but at the time I didn’t have to time or hard drive space to delve further into Big Bang…. no worries I eventually for there.

I liked his music so much (arms despite the cute face, muscles, shy smile and dancing and his strange and unpredictable hair) I was able to over look the fact that he tiny…. like seriously pocket sized tiny….


Overall I think this is a good party song … you need to be hyped up?  This is the song for you.

Until Next Time….
