Weekly Music Video

Today it's a song by Korean singer Rain (Bi). Rain (real name Jung Ji-Hoon) is also a dancer and actor and runs a record label, J. Tune Entertainment, which the group MBLAQ is signed to. He is a massive star in Asia, especially Korea and Japan and has released music in both languages. He is also popular in America. Rain debuted in 2002 with the album Bad Guy and has released 5 Korean studio albums and 2 Japanese ones.  He has acted in films and TV series including I'm A Cyborg But That's OK, Ninja Assassin, Full House and A Love To Kill. This song is variously translated as Ways To Avoid The Sun, Running From The Sun and Escaping The Sun and is from Rain's 2003 album of the same name.

I like this song but my favourite is the remix which you can watch here: Rain- Avoiding The Sun (Remix)

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…

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.

Turkish and Arabic Songs

Since my belly dance classes recently started again after a break over the summer and I'm also going to the belly dance event South Coast Shimmy tonight. I thought I'd post a round-up of Turkish and Arabic songs, plus a couple of songs I haven't mentioned before. :)
