Black, White...you speaking ing-leech?

Rain, the k-popstar, is REALLY creative. He entitled his fourth album, get this, its really cool, "4th Album"! Wow.


You sing a foreign language song. You put a word or if you're good enough, you put a sentence, but its also alright if you just put nothing in english, then give that song an english title.

BULLSHIT!

I really don't understand why couldn't you just name the song in the language you were singing it in. Publicity or wider market if people can actually read and pronounce your title correctly? Maybe.

But most of these guys you find out won't even know how to speak english. They just know how to say that word/sentence in their song. Must have taken them pretty long to figure out how to unroll and reroll their tongues to finally be able to pronounce it.

The other night, mom got me confounded. Rain (that famous korean singer) was accidentally on Mtv. She said,

"He's not even good-looking. Why he so popular? Why so many people like him?".

Although its kinda wicked to idolize a person based on their genes/noticeable features, but it is true. Why the heck is he so famous? His singing? Its alright, mediocre. I'm sure there are many more who can out-sing him. His dancing? I think its just a play with the sound effects and camera angles that make it look good. His looks? He has any? Hmmmm...

I could only come up with one explanation. Its based on cuz Ashes theory of black, white & brown. He says you're either black, white or brown. If you're a black person, then you're cool. If you're white, you ain't cool but you're alright if you don't try to cross your borders. But trust me, you don't want to be brown! You won't even be categorized as a PERSON. You're just brown.

Don't take this as a skin colour discrimination. Its got nothing to do with skin. Its based on how you are. How you act. In our community that is. However, honestly, I gotta tell you this theory is actually weaved on the american life...Bronx rulez! Suburban no good. Get it? If you don't nevermind.

So according to Ashes, its the blacks thats gonna make it cool. Watched "John Tucker Must Die"? See his good friend is a black guy. That's why the movie was good. And if you bought a dvd player that can't play pirated goods, then I'm sure a white made it.

So Rain. I think he's famous just because he's trying to be black. And surprisingly, its working. Somehow...a white trying to be black...

Anywayz, I like Rain's new song "In My Bed", the one with the sleek black car in the background. But I only like it because its got a nice music/tune, which he has stolen of corz! From some r&b english song, think it was originally sung by a girl/girl group titled "For You I Will", no not Teddy Geiger. The english chorus goes something like "I will climb the mountain's high/ I will cross the ocean's deep...", I THINK. Listen it yourself and tell me if you agree, and if you remember the original song as well, or if you've noticed it as well!

Btw, I did NOT hear one time the words "in my bed" in Rain's version of the song. Sheeesh.
