Okay, so I decided to make a list of great song lyrics in Korean music (probably even incorporate some Japanese and Chinese songs). I've actually been wanting to this ever since I started this blog. Originally, it was supposed to be one or two posts in length, but I realized that perhaps it would just be better to just have one post per song lyrics. And instead of it being a list, maybe I'll just do a series. Then I would also have more room for discussion. Seems like a better idea, right?
I’ve named this series Melody Of Lyrics, which I feels fitting. Lyrics may seem secondary to instrumentals or vocals, but I think that song lyrics that speak to you are often as important. And such good lyrics just may have a melody of their own. Whether they are happy, sad, comical, witty, racy or cute, the only condition is that they need to have that little something that speaks to my soul.
I can't promise to be unbiased when it comes to the selection of the songs since I'm gonna discuss only songs that I think deserve being noted for awesome lyrics. But feel free to stick around and give your opinions and suggestions anyways.
So, I’m gonna start this series with Epik High's "One". Now, Epik High is definitely one of my favourite Korean artists and much of it is thanks to their very meaningful song lyrics. They have many other songs with wonderful lyrics which I'm gonna discuss later on, but today we're sticking to "One" alone.
