[series][fan made] From Stephe’s desk: Rain’s Japanese songs in the order I like ’em. (#6!)


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. โค 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 โ€” that I know of โ€” in the order I like them.

I’d love for you to share your favs, too. ๐Ÿ™‚

6Oh, yeah, haha.^^ In my #6 spot: “Oh Yeah”, one of two duets Rain did with awesome Japanese/Italian-American R&B talent A.I. (I’m telling you, one of my fantasy duets of all time would be A.I. and Chaka Khan singing any song.) ๐Ÿ™‚

You can find “Oh Yeah” in 3 places โ€” 1) on Rain’s Japanese album Eternal Rain (September 2006), and 2) on his Vol. 4 Korean album Rain’s World (October 2006), and 3) on Disc 1 of his Rain’s World Repackaged album (December 2006). And this was THE song, dear friends, where I first discovered how hooked I was on Rain in Japanese. I mean, c’mon, when you hit PLAY, listen to the very first line he sings, and then start the song over at least 20 times just to hear the very first line he sings again, that’s sort of a clue, ain’t it? LOL~

(Romanji: “Jibun ni nai… nanika ga aru yuruginai… kanjouya fukai ai… onna ga omou kimochi wa itsumo…”)

Then I finally listened to the rest of the duet, and that was all she wrote. *sigh* ๐Ÿ™‚

Rain and A.I.’s second duet, which ended up on her album What’s Going On A.I.? (2006) was in neither Japanese nor Korean, but in English. Believe that? It’s one l-o-n-g sexy double entendre called “Too Much” that supposedly takes place on the dance floor of a club, but we know where it really takes place. Just sayin, lol~

South Korean censors would have crapped all over themselves if it had come their way (can’t even say “under my skin” over there), but Japan didn’t bat an eyelash and I wouldn’t have either. A.I. and Rain even performed it live during her album promotions, which was cool.

During a Japanese entertainment news report, A.I. talked about them both cracking up on stage when he overshot his mark and she accidentally knocked his mic into the side of his face when he was trying to be sexy. LOL!

That’s 10 spots down. Good grief, we’re about to go into the TOP 5!

See y’all in a tick! โค

  1. Love these as well Great songs and videos memory lane ๐ŸŽง๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŽค๐Ÿ’ฆ


  2. Stephe you are driving me crazy just when through I had calmed down you throw AI and RAIN into the mix. The both of the songs are off the charts for me. But the duet in English of Too Much, the images it conjured up was just too hot.

    Liked by 2 people

    • Haha, sorry, libbie, but I needed some company. Can’t be going crazy by myself! keke~

      And speaking of Too Much… I’ve never been on a dance floor when I was asked by a guy to take anything with both hands. So. Just sayin, Rain LMAO @_@

      Stephe ^@@^
