生命は宝島~ + ♫ MUSIC ♫ ~ double post!

生命は宝島 means "life is a treasure island"

I created this new motto of mine myself. It's so true.. Life is a treasure island, and the treasure is destiny. I believe in destiny you see. I'm kind of superstitious too. (burn the witch!!! hahaha)

あら、おーい mr。仙女
atm I have a horrible headache and I was going to go play this game called Space Alert to my friend's place... But since instead of chilling out in my head, this headache keeps pounding like a madman so I'm going to write a new post. ABOUT MUSIC! you know, last post was about inspiration in pictures. Well, this time, let's focuse on music ♪♫♪

I listen to all kinds of music but I'm going to tell you about fav genres, my favorite artists and bands and random songs too. At the end of each section, there's a song or two from one of the mentioned artist. THESE THINGS ARE NOT IN ANY ORDER since my favorites change all the time. And posting Youtube links mean that they might not always work since Youtube is deleting videos all the time.. But well, I'll write the title too so if the link doesn't work, you can try finding it yourself...  ^^'

THIS FIRST POST WILL MAINLY BE ABOUT JAPANESE MUSIC AND KOREAN MUSIC! Why "only" these? Well, because I listen to the music of these countries a lot! :D second post will be about Western music mostly.

                        I love/hate this subject. I LOVE BOTH OF THESE GENRES! But what about that thing about K-pop groups being better in dancing and on the other hand J-pop groups rocking the vocals? I guess it's sometimes true.

                        OKAY! Next post is about all the other music I listen! So be prepared for another gigantic post... 

                        * オーホッホッホー。。。*

                        I think J-Pop > K-pop. I don't like either one, but to my mind all K-pop just sound the same : DD NOT LIKE J-POP DOESN'T LOLOLOLOL

                        ...sorry :D but that's just my opinion, you see? <:'D

                        hahah funny answer :D you're more into J-pop, that's okay ^^ but maybe you should listen more K-pop, different artists, maybe then the music could start sounding.. not the same XDDD I think it's the language that makes the difference..
