We got a triple FIGHT!
It was the second half of 2003 when I was listening to La Ley quite non-stop, since it was only one of the handful CDs that I had taken to Canada, when my friend grabbed my headphones and told me, “Do you know l’Arc en Ciel? It sounds exactly like him, but in not-Japanese.” I’d always kept that at the back of my mind until today when I found this new Indian band called Sanam, and had a similar thought.
Of course, l’Arc en Ciel has over twenty years of history already, so it’s an obvious imbalanced fight. Though I do kinda chuckle whenever people refer to lead vocalist Hyde as a “chibi” person, as well as measuring other people as “one hyde and one inch tall” LOL
Note: Also love how the fans sing as a prelude.
Of course, if La Ley hadn’t decided to split mid-noughties, they’d have a couple of years into l’Arc en Ciel, and the image that I have of Beto Cuevas wouldn’t be so quite embarrassing.
Remember when Jennifer Lopez debuted with If You Had my Love? I listen to On the 6 from time to time, especially because her duet with Marc Anthony No Me Ames [MV] is one of my favorites to lipsync xD
Remember when 1999 had every single music video in metallic colors and had a Y2K theme or similar? Remember when J.Lo was with Puffy, pre-Ben, pre-marriage to Marc, and could dance… and didn’t make ridiculous performances with Pitbull for the World Cup?
People may think that this song is so un-Latina of her, but the album actually has a good mixture of Latino in there~
It feels like ages ago, but about five years ago Crowd Lu geek his way into my music heart , and I’ve loved him ever since. No questions about it. It isn’t the case so much with Kreva, whom I’ve only just met but haven’t properly been introduced because- DUH! Japan is always a bitch about distribution. It’s gotten better with YouTube, but Kreva’s iTunes page is bare except for his collaboration with Miyavi.
And I’m too lazy to do ‘other things’ anyway~
So while YouTubing, I ran into this:
This YouTube thing telling me I should maybe “watch” some videos that I had already watched had me clicking on the BackStreet Boys’ I Want It That Way,because… WHY NOT? — turning me into a 15-year-old all over again.
Actually, I was a lot younger. I was probably closer to 13, but you can’t really tell considering distribution wasn’t instant back then. My English skills weren’t consistent back then, and I remember we’d all share the lyrics to the song from an ex-classmate that was visiting when she’d left for the US. Printed out emails to share lyrics. xD
Up until these days, whenever I listen to songs of the 90s, it’s likely I have to stop what I’m doing and sing at the top of my lungs… even though I can’t reach the notes any longer. LOL I also can’t sing along while doing choreography either. xD I also don’t bother to learn lyrics of songs either. It’s not only because 80% of the music I listen to now it’s in a language I can’t converse in, there’s also the amount of music that needs to be heard.
It’s not because I’m old or anything xD
