Who Rocks it Better? SHINee or DTMG

leave a comment »

I bet you thought I’d never do one of these again.  I wasn’t sure if I would since I haven’t found songs I’d like to compare.

Today, the two songs  we have to juxtapose is an original and a remake.  And this time when I ask “who rocks it” we have a candidate that actually does rock.

First the original: SHINee.

So SHINee comes out strong with their song Dream Girl which reminds me of the Pop-Funk dance music of the early 90s. This song was released about two months ago (19 February 2013).

Next we have the contenders: DTMG featuring Puma Shock.

DTMG took the song in a totally different direction, they threw down the guitars and rocked the song. I also love that they sang the song in the original Korean instead of Sukiyaki-ing it (yes, I made that noun into an verb. What!)

Puma Shock is a favorite of mine, as evidenced by previous blog posts.

Verdict: I can’t decide. I am a big fan of electro pop music so I like the original.

But then I also like rock music and I am so glad that these guys came correct on the song, made it their own without detracting so much from the original that you can’t tell what it was.

It’s hard.

I am going to make this one a toss up. Because really, depending on the day I am into dance or I am into rock.

Who Rocks It Better? Corbin Bleu vs. SHINee

with 3 comments

For those who don’t know,  Corbin Bleu released a solo cd in 2007.  Here’s his song called Deal with It:

The K-Pop group SHINee  took the music and made a song called Juliette.

My verdict:  they’re both okay but makes me want to go pull out my Jackson albums circa 1986.  (Both videos had the hee-hees but not the ja’mons.  Ya gotta have a ja’mon.)

Corbin’s 2nd cd is in stores now.  Just a heads up.
