Top 10 Songs

I've been thinking of doing a post of my my Top 10 favourite songs for ages and I finally got round to it! lol. It wasn't rerally an easy task to narrow it down because I like a lot of songs but I decided on the list in the end. So here they are. :)




1. Mariah Carey- Honey

This is my favourite Mariah song. :) It was the first single from her 1997 album Butterfly. I included Honey in my Top 10 Mariah Songs post which you can read here: http://starsparklex.blogspot.co.uk/2013/01/top-10-mariah-carey-songs.html



                                    





2. Mariah Carey- Heartbreaker (Remix) feat. Da Brat and Missy Elliot

This is the remix to Heartbreaker and while I like the original, the remix is my favourite. It's featured on both the Rainbow album (1999) and The Remixes (2003). I also included this song in my Mariah Top 10 (No 2).



                                   



3.  Sarah Connor- The Loving Permission

 The Loving Permission is my favourite song by German singer Sarah Connor. You can find it on her second album Unbelievable, which came out in 2001.





                                     


4. Koda Kumi- feel

Koda Kumi is my fave Japanese singer. I chose feel as the No 1 song on the Top 10 Koda Kumi Songs list I posted in June. It's from her BEST~second session~ album (2006) and was released as a single on 11th January 2006 as part of her 12 Singles Project (where she released one single every week for 12 weeks).

feel is one of a series of interlinked videos in which 3 men tell stories about the women in their lives. Kumi plays each of the women. The others are You, Lies and the final one Someday, which ties all the videos together.



                                         

This is the official AVEX upload but since they don't tend to post full videos, I've also linked to the full version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fu4fX_-m3Rs




5.Utada Hikaru- Let Me Give You My Love

I really like Let Me Give You My Love by Japanese American singer Utada Hikaru.  It's on her first English language album (under the Island Def Jam record label) Exodus (2004).





6. LL Cool J- Doin' It feat. LeShaun

Along with Ja Rule (see below) LL Cool J is one of my favourite rappers. He's had a long career (30 years, as long as I've been alive! lol). Doin' It came out in 1996 but I think I first heard it in about 1998. I really wanted to get the single but had trouble finding it. In the end I got it as an import from HMV. (This was before the days of iTunes and iPods, lol).

Doin' It is from LL's 6th studio album Mr. Smith (his real name is James Todd Smith) and contains a sample of Grace Jones' My Jamaican Guy. I think there was a remix on the CD single where you could hear "My Jamaican Guy" sung in the background.

Please note that this is the explicit version.


                                  




7. CoCo Lee- Do You Want My Love

This is my fave song by Chinese American singer CoCo Lee. It's from her first full length English album Just No Other Way (2000) and also appears on 1994-2008 Best Collection. There are two versions though, with slightly different lyrics.


                                                                   




8.  Jennifer Lopez- If You Had My Love

I featured If You Had My Love as No 1 on my Top 10 Jennifer Lopez Songs post which you can read here: http://starsparklex.blogspot.co.uk/2012/10/top-10-jennifer-lopez-songs.html#more

It was Jennifer's debut single from her debut album On The 6 (1999) and was released in June 1999.



                                 



9.  Jennifer Lopez feat. Ja Rule- I'm Real Remix

My second favourite J.Lo song and No 2 on my Top 10 list. This is the remix of the original song I'm Real and it features Ja Rule. I actually prefer this to the original I'm Real, although I like that as well. The song came out in 2001. It wasn't on the original version of the J.Lo album but is included on the second release with extra tracks and is also on J To Tha L-O! The Remixes (2002).



                                     



10. Ja Rule- Livin' It Up feat. Case

The other rapper I like. :) Livin' It Up is from his third album Pain Is Love and was released in 2001.





Hope you like the list! What makes your Top 10? :)



P.S. I'm having some trouble with videos loading. Updating the posts seems to help but sometimes I have to refresh as well. I'm not sure if it's my computer but if the videos won't load for you, try refreshing/reloading the page. :)

J Soul Brothers (Japanese boyband)

I don't know that many Japanese boybands. It's funny but I mostly know Korean groups and Japanese solo singers! I know KAT-TUN, Arashi (although they're more of a rock group, I think) and Hey! Say! JUMP but not many more. A friend recently introduced to me the band (or vocal and dance unit) J Soul Brothers, so I thought today I'd do a post about them. And of course it fits into the J-pop and K-pop theme I'm doing this month! This is a good opportunity to find more J-pop boybands too. :)


The J Soul Brothers were originally formed in 1998 but have gone through two line-up changes. The current incarnation- full title Sandaime (Third Generation) J Soul Brothers from EXILE TRIBE* or J Soul Brothers III- was formed in 2010 by HIRO who is the leader of Japanese boyband EXILE (which has an impressive 19 members!) and founding member of the First Generation J Soul Brothers.  It was decided that EXILE and former Nidaimie (Second Generation) J Soul Brothers members NAOTO and …

Dance Videos

It's time for another dance post! I thought I'd feature both modern dance and belly dance today. :)


First of all here are a couple of dance videos by choreographer Rumer Noel. This is one to Everyday by Ariana Grande that was uploaded in January. According to comments on YouTube the man dancing with Rumer at the beginning is called Lucas la Parada.



So Sharp: Dance Squad

So Sharp: Dance Squad is an American reality TV series about the University of Louisville Ladybird Dance Team run by Todd Sharp. It's set in Louisville, Kentucky. As you'll know if you follow this blog, I'm a fan of dance reality shows such as Dance Moms and Bring It! So I was interested when So Sharp started in the UK a few weeks ago.

Todd is head coach along with Sheryl Knight, a former Ladybird herself. Todd has also coached the Floyd Central Dazzlers. The team have won 15 national championships so far.

As with the other dance reality shows, there's a lot of drama! Marissa Hall is close to Todd and describes him as like a father to her. She is considered one if the best dancers and her close relationship with Todd rubs some people up the wrong way, particularly Michelle Carpenter. Rose Crombie is one of Marissa's main rivals but according to the Decidr article about the team (see below) they're close. Gabrielle Iannone struggles sometimes with the choreograp…
