[series][fan made] From Stephe’s desk: Rain’s Japanese songs in the order I like ’em. (#7!)


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. 🙂

7In my #7 spot: “Up In The Club”, the B-side of Rain’s 3rd Japanese single release (“Move On”, Sept 2006).

Even though this song isn’t on an album, it’s a real favorite because it takes a hard, gritty, stomping in a dirty night club vibe and what sounds like a Latin guitar and marries them with rapid-fire Japanese from Rain’s soft, funky tenor. These 4 things seem highly unlikely to ever be put together in the same song, at least in my mind, because they’re so different from each other. Yet, here they are, with expected results — a choppy thing that lacks refinement, and unexpected results — a thumping thing that finds your heartbeat, makes your head start bobbing, and makes your body move to it with your eyes closed. (Yeah, just as if you had busted up into the club for real.)

And then in the 2nd and 3rd verses… Rain gets downright swagalicious with those. “Do you feel me, that I want you?” (min 2:04) Yes, I most certainly do, sir. Heheh~

His voice goes back and forth through quite a few octaves here, doesn’t it? Enjoy this The Fugitive: Plan B JiWoo-mania fan made, one of many lunaluna specials.^^

This YouTuber used Rain’s MVs for “Still Believe”, “I’m Coming”, “Free Way”, “Bad Guy”, “It’s Raining”, “Sad Tango”, “Escaping The Sun”, “I Do”, “In My Bed”, and “Shou Ji (Hand Note)” to pack this fan made full of pure Random Rain Goodness. Enjoy. 🙂

That’s 9 spots down. We’re in a groove now! See y’all this weekend. ❤
