Quick thought about everything.
After JYJ Showcase in BKK…I attended David Foster with Friends concert + another free concert which included Thai artists, CN Blue, Super Junior and Enrique Eglesias.
Finally, I got to hear Peter Cetera. I love Chicago…I almost cried when I heard he sang the first verse…”Everybody needs a little time away…” from “Hard to say I’m sorry”. Just that verse and I felt it’s worth every single cent I spent to be there. David Foster is indeed a talent song-writer, producer. I love how he said that he loves to discover new talent. Like 20 years ago, he said to Celine Dion that she would get a chance to sing with Barbara Streisand and everyone would know her by her first name. I like how he played with the crowd. Such a professional guys.
I was able to listen to Charice live for the first time in David Foster concert. I like her voice but I see the problem why someone said that she should find her own voice. This girl is really amazing. However, I got a feeling that she interpreted almost every songs as the same. When she sang “To Love You More” from Celine Dion…I almost got shocked because she did sound pretty much like Celine. Too much alike as if I could just close my eyes and imagine that this was Celine’s voice. My friend asked me whether I prefer “I have Nothing” of Charice over JYJ’s version….here is a problem. Charice is powerful in her own way but I don’t get enough feeling from her singing to make the chill down to my spine. That’s the only thing I wish she could improve with more experiences.
I like Natalie Cole duet with Nate King Cole in Unforgettable. Somehow I wish I could take my mom with me because this is her favourite of all time. But she just doesn’t like being in a long concert.
I love the ending song, “Earth Song”. It’s one of my favourite from MJ.
Funny thing about this concert is that…I got a feeling that I’m so young at this concert. On the contrary to JYJ Showcase when I feel a bit old. lol.
Quick recap to another concert.
…CN Blue and SUJU got lots of support that night. They were doing fine. I got pretty close to the stage…maybe even closer than the seat I got in JYJ showcase. (Different venue but pretty close to each other.) I don’t know much about CN Blue but the show is nice.
And I love Enrique Eglesias. I felt so bad for him because most teenagers who attended this concert just didn’t know who he was. They couldn’t sing along and they are waiting for Super Junior. (Enrique sang between CN Blue and SUJU…if I don’t rememeber it wrongly.) However, he is just so professional, world-class artist! He knew how to lift up the whole crowd spirit. He ran to every place he could, jump off the stage to cheer up the crowd and at the end, we have quality time with him. He’s not my favourite singer but I did enjoy his performance very very much.
After that, we got 10 Super Juniors. They sang some of my favourite song, started with Bonamama, No Others, then couple songs I don’t know, then ended up with Sorry Sorry. (I was wondering whey Heechul ran to the back of the stage before Sorry Sorry and then just return when half song was already sang. O_____o)
The problem is …seeing SUJU made me longing for JYJ. I really wish I could fly to Seoul and attend their concert. *sob* My friend who sat next to me is the one who attended Thanksgiving concert with me and we kept talking about how we wish to be in JYJ concert again. Seriously we are so spoiled with those boys quality. I dare say that after attend many high-quality concerts, I just appreciate them more. These boys just got every things. It might sound cliche but they really are on the league of their own. I know that there is still room to improve. But the feeling that they poor into their singing is overwhelming. I dare say no one could block these boys from the stage…as long as they want to sing, there will be tons of people want to attend their live.
A bit about DBSK
… a rumour about HoMin as DBSK...I feel sorry for them if it’s true. I don’t really feel happy or upset toward this news. I just think people would see that they would be awkward with only 2 members with that name. (I’m wondering how the comeback could be true though. Yunho has his Poseidon project which could occupy his first half of 2011.) Now, DBSK is just a good memory for me. I still listen to their old songs and appreciate five members’ effort and harmony. So I don’t really have much problem about how things go. Just wish that SM stops blocking JYJ in Korea and how I wish JYJ could work in Japan again.
Funny how US showcases turn out to be a good sacrifies for JYJ. (Well, at first, I was crying when I knew about their visa problem. It’s not that funny.) It’s even more funny when they announced the showcase for free and someone kept saying something like “See..they’re not poor as they said…how could they cover all the expense if they didn’t get enough money from SME” lol. These people just forgot that JYJ got concert in Japan, DVDs and a single with Avex. Also Mozart, Sunao Ni Narenakute, Sangkyunkwan Scandal + Showcase in Asia should cause them fortune. Now, it’s even more funny how HoMin stan just keep repeating…JYJ lied to fans, kept fans false hope, betrayed HoMin and left DBSK. Lately, this become their mantra….ok keep saying whatever you want but it’s time to move on. I can say all FIVE of them lied to fans at some point, keep fans false hope at some degree and betrayed each other. But as I always said, these guys are singers, idols and I appreciate them for their work. Not that they could have done anything bad for my life. So I’m just going to enjoy their song, performance, drama, whatever that entertain me.
Now I would go back to JYJ twitter. That’s something really entertaining.
P.S. Note as a translator: JJ almost killed me with his twitter lol.
