1. Cherry Blossom Ending by Busker Busker
It’s easy to see why Cherry Blossom Ending is still dominating the charts a year later. It’s the perfect song for spring ah I could listen to it forever. Make sure to check out their first album. First Love (첫사랑), Yeosu Night Ocean (여수 밤바다) and Calling You (전활 거네) are also heavily played favorites ♪

2. Blue Ocean Floor by Justin Timberlake
Everyone’s talking about 20/20 Experience! For the most part I found it to be an enjoyable album. Nothing groundbreaking, but it wasn’t all terrible (except maybe too long?). Pusher Love Girl, That Girl and Mirrors are absolute favorites, but the one that caught me by surprise was Blue Ocean Floor because it’s just so calming and airy and tranquil. Get the album here.

3. Everlasting Love by Jacky Cheung
There’s no one who will ever do Cantopop justice the way that the legends did it (Roman Tam, Anita Mui, Leslie Cheung etc.), but I hold Jacky’s songs dearest to my heart because I grew up listening to his audio cassettes. These are great translations. THE SINCERITY. It’s a shame that a lot of new artists just don’t write like this anymore.

Khalil Fong has to be one my favorite musicians of all time and I am so happy that he’s finally back with a new album. It feels like fans have been waiting forever, but it was more than worth it because ‘Back to Wonderland’ is EVERYTHING I WANTED IT TO BE. There are a few songs I’m not completely on board with (Can You Feel the Music, 孤独孩儿, Romeo & 妈妈说), but I loved every one of his pre-releases and I’m absolutely smitten with 關於愛的定義, 麦恩莉 and 你就是. SO LOVELY. He really did a fantastic job. Even if ‘Back to Wonderland’ isn’t much different from ‘Wonderland’ or ‘Orange Moon,’ it’s allll goooood. I will always have the utmost respect for his courage to experiment in ’15,’ but it’s ~wonderful~ to hear Khalil back in his element doing what he does best.

I couldn’t pick a favorite song to share, but I think 麦恩莉 perfectly sums up his musical style.

WOW FANTASTIC BABY
