It really depends on my current playlist. It changes very easily.
I have many favorite bands, but none ever comes close to SHINee. It’s the only band I’ve been following closely for years. They haven’t bored me until today, because they only got better and better. And I mean, better. They’ve been growing creatively and conceptually, one would think it’s impossible, but they have and are. 2013 has been an especially SHINee-packed year. They’ve been all over the world and releasing tons of new singles, albums, photoshoots, merchandise, TV shows, we don’t have time to breath. Next week, they’ll be releasing their 8th record of the year, with the promo single “Everybody”.
They released a 6-sec preview of the new single last night, check it out here
I never get tired of telling people the fact that I love SHINee because they’re creatively inspiring. It saddens me that many turn SHINee down without checking them out at least once only because they’re a K-Pop product. I personally think SHINee can compete internationally, because they’re a breath of fresh air. I haven’t seen anything like them so far. They’ll stand out.
But since we’re talking about my favorite song of theirs, out of twenty records, this is my favorite so far:
Like A Fire by SHINee
SHINee has tried everything: pop, R&B, rap, hip-hop, ballads, and it seems like they’ve finally found their true color in Misconceptions albums. Mainly electronic pop, but you’ll hear heavy funk and acid influences there. Like A Fire exceptionally stands out for me because it reminds me of Earth, Wind, and Fire, and it amazed me that SHINee could pull it off. Lyrics-wise, the song is straightforward and bluntly in love, and I love it. All five members of the band display great vocals, and do I even need to talk about Jonghyun’s adlib? I can’t wait to see them performing this song live. ♥
