Another month has gone by and its been a rather fun music month over here. Maybe not quite as much as the last month since there were some great finds. However, May was pretty awesome as well. Hopping into June, we have some good music sitting around.
Let’s check it out!
Partners 拍檔 – Claire Kuo (Refresh Man Opening Theme)
Refresh Man is a Taiwanese series that I’m absolutely in love with. I was going to do the TV binge but I actually ended up starting to watch it again…so that is going to happen probably after the second viewing although I’m watching it rather leisurely. It showed me to Aaron Yan who I realized was an actor & part of a boy band that I caught on to about ten years when he first started and really liked but kind of fell of my radar when I took a break from Taiwanese series and music.
KO One – Tank (KO One Opening Theme)
The TV series that started out Aaron Yan and the boy band that he was part of, Fahrenheit, was KO One. Its this quirky fun series that I loved. It combines a lot of fantasy RPG/combat gaming things with a fun awkward humor that worked for me. I loved his character in it. I couldn’t believe that watching Refresh Man would be such a nostalgic trip back. Now, I have a few Fahrenheit tunes in my list as well as the KO One and the sequel’s theme as well. Although this wasn’t sang by Fahrenheit, Tank is a really great singer. His songs are always very powerful and a lot of fun. I’m hunting down one that I can’t remember the name of but I loved a lot. Hopefully, I’ll figure it out eventually.
Troublemaker ft Flo Rida – Olly Murs
An absolute odd bag this month. I heard this song on the radio and remembered that I used to like it. Its super catchy and even though I’m not a Flo Rida fan, I still like this song quite a bit. Its a lot of fun.
Something Just Like This – The Chainsmokers & Coldplay (Cover by VoicePlay feat. J None)
Not exactly sure what the original sounds like but I love VoicePlay. They have a great vocal balance in their group. They pull off some great acapella tunes.
There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back – Shawn Mendes (English + Spanish cover by Leroy Sanchez)
I like the Shawn Mendes original version. In fact, its been the first song in a while that I found through the radio. Shawn Mendes has been an young singer that has surprised me quite a bit in his songs and the music he makes. However, I have a soft spot for Spanish, the language in general is one that I love a lot. I still hope to get back to improving it. Either way, Leroy Sanchez is one of my new Youtube discoveries. He has a pretty good voice and his last few covers has been rather impressive. This one has been playing a lot.
That’s it for this Music Obsessions round-up!
