KPOP and me – LOST

I was listening to my rotation of Korean Pop songs on the phone. And one came on and for a bit there, I thought it was Big Bang… But it’s not. It’s ‘YEY’ by Beast. And it made me wonder… has the KPop songs become too same?  There is a reason why I gravitated towards KPOP. Because, I felt the American Pop songs currently playing were so the same I couldn’t tell one high pitched singer from the other. They’ve lost their soul.
And I’m wondering if that’s happening to me for KPop as well. I find some notables, but that’s far and few in between. Some days I revisit old loves like James Blunt and Savage Garden. And most times, there is FEVER from Adam Lambert.
Currently, Crooked, Naram Barabwa, Just Another Girl, Jung Joonyoung, Kim Jaejoong… just the old standards. So, yes! I’m getting old. But how I wish I could hear some really good ballads soon. Like Sting.
I hope to discover someone fresh again. Someone I could get immersed into listening to. It seems I’m getting bored. A pity.

Halloween Lesson

This is what a father did for his daughters.

The reason I share it with you is because they wanted him to be a princess like them today. I am proud to be an American because today, he won’t be stoned, spat on… And I won’t be the one to put him down or ridicule him. Today, he put on Snow White’s dress because he wanted to be there for his two princesses. That was worth it to him. And to me, that was beautiful.

Just a Warning
