Nuff said!! This IS why BODYSLAM has always been my all time MUST watch Thai band! When will the day come?!!
Having seen/heard Potato live in a concert here in Singapore, but it is still my dream to attend one that is based in Thailand. Any concert will do, but of course such events like Chang Fest: Rock Summer Festival or even Chick Mountain Music Festival. I’m 101% sure the atmosphere is something that I can call EPIC MOMENT! Let’s hope that day would come soon…
I first heard Eugenia Yip was when she sang at my cousin’s wedding which I was totally captivated by her tone of voice. Later, I found out that she was actually a fellow schoolmate of mine! yes, LASALLE rocks!! Of course, she wasn’t doing such genre at my cousin’s wedding (not that it’s impossible), but instead it was more more jazz numbers that totally caught our ears. Side note: I CANNOT stress how important it is to have good music at weddings!!
So it wasn’t until recently that I came across her other band that she has called Riot !n Mengenta which caught my attention by the unique arrangements of their pieces which is rarely heard here in Singapore – even though it’s a total complete opposite of what I’ve first heard her but her tone of voice still lingers starkly in my mind, in a good way!!
Random BUT honest feelings – SUPPORT SINGAPOREAN ARTIST!
I have been coming across many singers these days who knows the essence of such classic songs and have decided to do a version of their own, which I feel that it’s an awesome choice!! The tough part of singing such songs is that it would often be compared with the original singer who obviously did a wonderful job, if not it wouldn’t be known as a classic song, right? But in all that, I had fun listening to the newer generation singers who has also done a great job in injecting a life of their own to the remake of these songs.
So here’s a compilation of songs that has been on my current playlist, both new and old!
Do you have any other old vs new songs that you have taken fancy of? Let me know!
