[series][fan made] From Stephe’s desk: Rain’s Japanese songs in the order I like ’em. (#8!)


I’ve always admitted that, even though Rain hypnotizes the heck out of me when singing in his native Korean tongue, when he sings in Japanese, every endorphin in my nervous system melts down like a nuclear reactor. Don’t know why. Can’t figure it out. ❤ It is what it is! Under those circumstances, it’s waaaay past time for me to share with y’all the 15 songs Rain sings in Japanese and English — that I know of — in the order I like them.

I’d love for you to share your favs, too. 🙂

8In my #8 spot: “Props In My Life” on his Japanese album Eternal Rain (2006).

Not only does Rain do the most beautiful things with his voice in this song (just listen to his control over the notes, and that sweet, soft falsetto), the things he’s saying in the song reminds each one of us that he’s been through a lot of hell just like us and these are the things we must remember when the going gets tough.

I cannot tell you how many times I’ve stopped and listened to “Props In My Life” during the moments I thought I just wouldn’t make it another day, and it helped pull me through because I knew it wasn’t just lip service. He’s talking from experience, from the heart. This song will never be far from my CD player, not in this life.

As far as I know, just like with “Without You”, Rain hasn’t performed this song in public. It was strictly for the album and only in Japanese. It delights me to no end that lunaluna added English and Korean subs in addition to Japanese to her fan made. Love her! ❤

That’s 8 spots down, y’all! I’ll see you Thursday, heaven willing and the creek don’t rise. ❤

  1. I love this song along with some many others. I see your points ladies and totally agree with you. 🎤🎹😀


  2. Cette voix de velours qu’il a , il me fait fondre direct !!!

    Vous m’avez donner une idées , lundi à mon 1er jour de vacance , je vais prendre un bain chaud en écoutant Rain !! Cela va vraiment me détendre 😉


  3. I am crying while I am writing this and listening for the 10th time this incredible song. I can see what you mean about the way he can convey the very soul of the song. Even if I did not understand the words it just the way his voice is saying so much. Just keep them coming and let me keep falling more in love with him.
