First of all, I would like to wish each and every reader a very Happy Valentines' day! Be it by yourself or with a loved one, Valentines day is a day where you show love not only to your partner, but also to your family, and your friends!
Today I'll be sharing some songs with you that go through different aspects of love, such as romance, a first love, a confession etc... , so I hope you like this special playlist!
Sharon Kwan-First Love
Well, from the title I think it's pretty obvious which aspect of love this song is trying to represent. It's a kind of shy love; bittersweet but at the same time pure and innocent. I'm sure many of you have experienced this feeling, and have many memories of this kind of love!
This is a surprising choice even for me, but it seems that many people are using this song to confess their love to their prospective other halves! And so far, they seem pretty successful too! (I think.) Anyway, I hope this song gives you enough energy, courage and bravery to go up to the person that you like and confess how you feel to them. So go on, what are you waiting for? Dawen sends you the best of luck!
To me, this is the perfect song that represents feelings of romance in general. So this one is for those of you who have recently been successful in your love exploits, and are able to feel the exhilarating, bubbly warmth that exudes from being in L-O-V-E. 'Nuff said. Have a listen!
Claire Kuo-The beauty of being single
Those of you out there who are jealous that you don't have anyone this Valentines' day, don't be! Take some time out to love yourself, and treat yourself! Sit back, relax and be happy. Relationships ain't all that it's cut out to be anyway-why do you think there are so many break up songs? Having no one holding you back, being independent and able to make decisions by yourself is really an infinitely important advantage, so hold on to it and treasure it while you can!
Well that concludes my Valentines' Day playlist (sorry it's pretty short). But I hope that these songs help you in some way or another, to feel the love and happiness that you should on Valentines day! Happy Valentines' Day from Asian Pop Weekly!
After releasing her most recent album in the middle of last year, Claire kuo is set to release her next album, which is a greatest hits set with a few new songs! She's also prepared a new image, or two rather that oppose each other! One is a more optimistic and happy image while the other is demure and melancholy. The album is named <致纯静> (pristine) and will be released on the 30th of August!
Happy father's day to all of you around the world from asianpopweekly and from the various singers pictured. Have you wished your dad happy fathers day yet?
I think the new music videos for Claire's latest album <keep on Loving you> all have a really interesting atmosphere to them, kind of a quiet optimism , even in tracks which are essentially heartbreaking ballads such as :
A song written by singer-songwriter extraordinaire JJ Lin ,it is bound to please in its achy-breaky-heartache.
This is also one of my favourite songs from her album , called the <Attic of Memories>. If you listen closely , you can hear the sound of wind howling through an empty house which really lends it that bit of atmosphere it needs. Once again , Claire Kuo's voice lends light to the darkness , in a song that is about renewal and leaving the attic of memories.
This song is more of a whimsical , quirky number that suits her bell like voice perfectly. A thoroughly pleasant listen.
This is my favourite song from her album and also the title track , written by COLOR Ke le who in my experience is quite a good songwriter and has written for other singers such as Genie Zhuo. I love this song for its quiet optimism , in the lulling electric guitar pluckings and its simplicity.
