Some of my favourite songs by them, all time classic hits!
Watching Bodyslam LIVE has always been a dream of mine since the time I’ve liked them 7 years back and I still remember how I got introduced to thai songs was because of this pair of Thai twins in my secondary school. My first contact to thai songs were actually pop groups like Chinadolls, Dan&Beam in a cassette tape, which I will try to dig out. Being new to a language, I practically listened to all genres of thai music till I discovered that Thai songs ain’t just ballads and technoish dance songs.
Bodyslam was then a 3 piece group and their debut album ‘Bodyslam’ was fairly simple, overall good songs. It was the shop lady at MBK who introduced them to me, all I can remember was ‘Good band!’ + cd’s were pretty cheap (after the exchange rate of bhat to s$), I trusted her choice and bought. And since then, I’ve never looked back at getting that cd, which was just a start of liking them.
Have been requested to introduce the members, so here goes.
P’Toon – Vocals, P’Yod – Guitar, P’Pid – Bass Guitar and P’Chad – Drums.
It’s their diverse side to songs that keeps me entertained and wanting for more. I always look forward to their new releases, because I know that they’ll bring nothing but the best. I must say that they are a group who’s very hardworking and clear in what they want and still going ‘tight’ in terms of fan base and it’s still ever increasing. During my recent trip people are very amazed that a fellow Singaporean loves Bodyslam and loves singing along to their songs!
Bodyslam has grown so much after their album ‘Believe’ where they got in P’Chad, things started to turn around for them. Good to see them go towards a direction! Regardless of what they are, they’ll always have me rocking to their tunes!
I’m also very happy that people in Singapore are slowly accepting these Thai bands. I am glad that many people out there do actually like them now. Glad my post has been a joy to read, I’d definitely do more reviews of Thai related music/movies.
If any of Bodyslam’s contact ever see this, PLEASE get them to Singapore, pretty PLEASE! (-/\-)v
