w-inds - Rain Is Fallin` (Feat. G-Dragon of Big Bang)
Micro - Iz This Love?
Utada Hikaru - Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence -FYI
Miss Monday - 純愛百景II feat. 童子-T
加藤ミリヤ・清水翔太 - Love Forever
w-inds - You Are..
Vanness Wu - Hello Super Star
ONE☆DRAFT - ターミナルII (Feat. Macheri)
加藤ミリヤ・清水翔太 - Looking your eyes

I'm lovin' Micro's Space Rhythm 1 album. The song I included is a nice electronic beat but the album itself is diverse. Also lovin' Utada Hikaru who is trying to break into the US market. You may know her songs if you're playing Kingdom Hearts II. My favorite track on the list though is Vanness Wu's Hello Super Star. He's only an average singer and his Chinese music is hit and miss. However, I liked the three tracks he has in his Only album. Listen to his lyrics in Hello Super Star...does anyone in Japan know what Reeses Pieces are? Hahahaha, I love the reference, he sounds like a nerd. Enjoy~

Anyone listening to Flo Rida? Here's Dj Shine's cover of Right Round. Not bad as a cover, the mini album features remixes of the song as well as Flo Rida's version. Also on here is Taegoon's mini album which I'm liking. I'll be adding his Call Me remix on the next ballad list. Finally,I had to add the theme song from "Cinderella Man" to the list because I'm lovin' the drama. Enjoy~

Mix 020 - TVXQ Love!!!


どうして君を好きになってしまったんだろう?-THE LEVEL remix-
Hey! Girl
I Never Let Go
Mind and Soul
Two Hearts
Try My Love

Ahh, where to start? I'm in love with TVXQ/DBSK/Tohoshinki. The first song that caught my attention a couple of years ago was Hey! Girl. I listened to their other previous albums and wasn't thrilled. A couple years later (now), I came across their concert performance of Proud and I was hooked!!! First their vocals are an almost perfect combination. Second, they are an a capella group. Third, I'm a sucker for boys that cry but that's another story. I think Jae Joong and Junsu's voices are strong and exceptional, they sing live and sound consistent to their recorded songs. I've come to appreciate how hard they work after watching some of their concert performances. They dance and sing non stop for a good 20 minutes and sound great. This playlist consists of only ballads and may have been featured in my previous playlists but this is me showin' love! Enjoy~

Mix 019 - CPop Ballads

Steve Chou - 臨別一眼
Fahrenheit - 你應該被珍惜
Hannah Kim - 呼吸 愛
Steve Chou - 關不上的窗
Huang Chong Xu - 我们的故事
Elva Hsiao - Ba Xin Fang Jin Lai
Wilber Pan - Be With You (feat. Akon)
Wilber Pan - 双人舞
Jia Li Yi - 旋转门
Afalean Lu 卢学叡 - 情流感
Fahrenheit - 默默

I had to put this playlist up right away because I got hold of Wilber Pan's new singles. I love his style (so RnB and his raps are not bad either) and the fact that he is singing Akon's song, Be with You. I initially wanted his single for this song but I'm loving his other song, 双人舞, for it's catchy tune. He's an American born Taiwanese born in West Virginia. Afalean Lu is another artist (I mentioned A Chord Hsieh in the last entry) that made it to the Top 10 Mandarin albums of the last week of April. Thank you to my friends Aoi and Ai for supplying my music addiction! Enjoy~

Okay, I wasn't sure what to call this mix...not my usual hip hop or dance flavor and not what I think of as pop or rock. Anyway, take a listen to this playlist, my favorite is track 3 Fusion's 我的爱呢? reminds me of the band 311. I believe A Chord Hsieh was on the top 10 Mandarin albums for the last week of April. Enjoy~

BY2 - 新少女祈禱
Afalean Lu - Have Fun
Quincy Chen - 谢谢你捧场
Zhang Jun Ning - 王子的心

Zhang Jun Nin, aka Peter Pan, has released another new album called 小飞侠 and is very different from his previous work. I like this album because of the upbeat tracks. You may notice that the last track is a Cantonese song by Hins Cheung. Too bad, his latest album is Cantonese....hope he'll release another Mandarin album next time. Enjoy~
