Rewind!!! 3rd Anniversary of Jonghyun’s solo Debut “Base”


On this day three years ago the world was introduced to the musical and lyrical stylings of SHINee’s lead vocalist. The rest is history.

Below in order my favorite tracks from his debut album.


The first song on my list is not the main promoted track (like usual). Deja-Boo with its warm electronica infused neo soul vibe combined with Jonghyun’s unusual voice this song to be embodies the look and sound of the album. To me it has become (and now always will be) Jonghyun’s leitmotif.



The next two tracks continue the neo soul/chill vibe going.



While both the song and the music video were well produced I wasn’t completely feeling the promoted track from the EP. However  Crazy over time eventually grew on me.

This ends my extremely short and simple review.





His legacy continues ………


Watch This! The New Edition Story

A you a big fan of Boy bands? K-pop? Pop in general?  Have you heard of New Edition? If not you should. Considered the trailblazers of the modern boy band  New Edition was founded in 1978 in Boston, MA. Unfortunately like many pioneers they are often forgotten and the credit given to those who became more “successful” in their wake.

Their former manager Maurice Starr went on to create another boy band comprised of members of the caucasian persuasion named New Kids on The Block who became a huge success and the face of the boy band  in the U.S.and around the world.

All you K-pop and boy band fans should watch this movie to get a little history.
