원하고 원망하죠 (Wonhago Wonmanghajyo)

As One – Original singers of this song and it was released in the year of 2001, raw; even the melody is much cleaner as compared to the rest of the covers.

Go Younha – Of course, there is no doubt that Younha is a great singer which emits a certain sadness to this song with her powerhouse vocals.

Lee Seung Gi – Never knew he could sing till I heard his version, not bad!

아랫입술 물고 – eSNa 에스나

I’ve been hooked unto this song by Esna that it’s been on repeat mode all day long, and I really mean all day long! It’s a current OST for a drama I’ve been watching called The Heirs. I like how this song sounds unlike the typical Korean genre of dance *chest thrust in and out*. It definitely helps that she’s very much American influenced, which brings a new flavour to the music scene in Korea. Do check out her other originals/covers that she has done which features her unique voice! Loveeeeeee it!

Old vs New

I have been coming across many singers these days who knows the essence of such classic songs and have decided to do a version of their own, which I feel that it’s an awesome choice!! The tough part of singing such songs is that it would often be compared with the original singer who obviously did a wonderful job, if not it wouldn’t be known as a classic song, right? But in all that, I had fun listening to the newer generation singers who has also done a great job in injecting a life of their own to the remake of these songs.

So here’s a compilation of songs that has been on my current playlist, both new and old!

Do you have any other old vs new songs that you have taken fancy of? Let me know!
