In addition to flumpool songs, here are more songs I’m listening to this week.
I’ve been described as “living under a rock” but I don’t think this is true. I think that “living under a rock” implies that you don’t know any of the popular stuff. It’s true that I don’t know any of the popular stuff in Western pop culture, but I know what’s popular in China and Japan. Maybe I’m just above a different rock. I would say that I listen to Chinese songs the most and then Japanese music.
只是太在意 Just Cared Too Much – 宁桓宇
This is my favourite song right now. It’s from the Guardian OST. Guardian is a Chinese drama I’m watching right now. The song is sad, but so are all of my favourite songs.
初心 Chu Xin – 张赫宣
This is also from the Guardian OST. A comment said that this song is like a response to “Just Cared Too Much” and I like to view it as such. (Shen Wei’s POV in “Just Cared Too Much” and Zhao Yunlan’s reply in “Chu Xin.”)
There’s an English version of this song but the lyrics are different. It’s sang by a different singer and it’s a more powerful version.
追 Chasing – CORSAK
Chasing was released a day ago! CORSAK wrote the song while thinking about his “little foxes” (fans). I really like the lyrics. Basically, the song says that life is mundane but life is worth living because of his “little foxes.” He sings that everybody is concerned with numbers (likes, comments, follows) and popularity, but it doesn’t matter to him as long as his “little foxes” like the song. We like it!!!
If you like this song, I recommend listening to Reverse (LIVE) and Timelapse.
就只看了你一眼，就已确定了永远 – 李袁杰 & 李俊佑
I love Chinese songs from this era that incorporate traditional Chinese instruments. At 2:40, we hear Chinese opera. It’s cool that the song mixed the two styles together.
時間飛行 Time of Flight – 白宇 & 朱一龍
The two main leads from Guardian sang this song together. I think you can tell that I’m in love with drama right now. 😛
答案 – 倫桑
This is a cover of 答案 but I like this version more than the original.
