I was looking up Super Junior remixes when I stumbled across this…

Personally, I think Shindong owned it XD

SQUEEEEEE :3 updated 06/09

Okay, creepy little brothers aside, I struck gold on the internet today.

So, a while ago, I posted that I wanted more cutesy boybands after F.Cuz’s transformation. I was browsing around allkpop today because I was looking for the tracklist for Secret’s latest single, Madonna (pretty good song, sounds a lot like Magic though >.<). This one article with a picture of a boyband I didn’t recognize caught my attention…

Well, lo and behold, someone out there heard my plea 😀

Nine Muses… no >.>

I meant to post this ages ago, so now I’m wrote it on my laptop while we got lost trying to find our way to Boston.

So, I expressed how excited I was about Nine Muses a few posts ago… I loved Give Me. It is/was such a well-orchestrated song. And I still think it is, I really need to stop neglecting to download it… Well, a few nights ago I was listening to my music on my iPod when I realized I never downloaded that song. With my laptop out of reach with the 10 PM rule and all that, I searched “Nine Muses” on Youtube… Lo and behold, the Muses had finally made their official debut with a song called “No Playboy”, so I checked it out.

All I have to say is: Nine Muses is a very, very wrong name for the group. It’s really should be: A Decent Singer, a Rapper and a Bunch of Models.

K-pop girl groups: in MAJOR need of weeding

There have been a ridiculously large amount of group debuts between 2009 and now that it’s almost dizzying trying to count them all. For the heck of it (since I haven’t been writing much outside of ranting XD), I’ve decided to go through the groups that have debuted from 2009-present day and sort them into three categories: the great, the good-but-needs-a-little-something-something and the meh. For this I’m gonna go throw some more obscure groups in since we all know enough about groups like 2NE1, Secret, 4minute, f(x) and T-ara.

Geez, was I in a box the last few weeks?

I had the sudden incentive today to look up a live version of 4minute’s “HuH” on Youtube. I’m not really sure why I didn’t do this before, but HOLY CRAP. I thought they’d traded off their youngest member for a rapper… but she is a rapper now.

Why did it take me 3 years to hear this?

I know Super Freak. And I know U Can’t Touch This. Why did I not see that U Can’t Touch This uses the instrumentals from Super Freak?

Oh, for those who aren’t familiar with these older songs (though I’m pretty sure everyone knows U Can’t Touch This), Super Freak is a song by this guy called Rick James. I first heard it on Saturday Night Live, and… actually, there’s an interesting story behind this song.

German pop, anyone?

Been checking out some German pop groups lately, not really sure what my motivation was…

BUT DAAAANG, these people sound so J-pop-y! Well, maybe this is just the standard for German pop groups, but aaagh, that silly voice in my head keeps saying “Hi J-pop!”

Anyone heard the song “Butterfly” by SMiLE.dk? Well, Smile.dk’s a Swedish group, but they got a lot of attention in Japan due to their J-pop-y sound, to the point that Konami licensed Butterfly for DDR. SMiLE.dk’s since been recording their songs for a Japanese audience, with songs such as “Domo Domo Domo,” “Doki Doki” and “A Geisha’s Dream” (DDR players will recognize that one).

Anyways, the reason I brought up Butterfly is because this German group called Cherona got my attention with this song, similar in title and sound to Butterfly:

This one makes me think of Shinee’s Ring Ding Dong:

This one makes me think of J-pop in general, maybe a little Berryz Kobo…
