    “all for you” by seo in guk and eunji! a happy love song :)

  • Haibara Christie

    I’m not one for these kinds of things, but I’ll still leave a song suggestion (it’s a bit on the somber side):

    Younha’s Hope http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a6X39f3ZFYY (Too bad the lyric videos are so few)

    And about “Angel” I actually like the beginning part, and find that the lack of instrumentation gives the beginning an ethereal feeling that suits the whole “Angel/Heaven” concept.

    More Than This, Love You To Death and Plainsong.

    • Haibara Christie

      Wait, English songs are allowed?

      • Gaya_SB

        Sure, why not? What are your English faves?

        • Haibara Christie

          After seeing Plum Austen rock the Tamil/Hindi songs, I have to add at least these two:

          Jodhaa Akbar, “Jashn-e-Bahaaraa” (who can ignore all the pretty?):

          Indira, “Nila Kaikarithu” (too beautiful not to include, even though it’s not quite the love song you were thinking of):

          • http://twitter.com/PlumAusten Plum Austen

            Beautiful and hauntingly beautiful.

          • Haibara Christie

            Rahman is a freaking genius.

          • ybkdik91

            OMG !! Jashn-e-Bahaaraa *sigh* that is the most play Hindi song on my itunes, remember after watching Jodhaa Akbar and being obsessed with that song for months, still is one of my personal favorites.

        • hapacalgirl

          Hands down if ever I got a mixtape of English songs , putting Drop N Harmony’s. ” Because I love you” would instantly almost make me cry .

  • flipchic74

    Y.O.U by SHINee. This song gets me everytime. The chorus is so beautiful :)

    • Gaya_SB

      That one almost made my list! The birds won out in the end though

  • hapacalgirl

    1) JB and Jiyeon – “Together” from the Dream High 2 OST. I am not a fan of JB and I know people love/hate Jiyeon but this song is super sweet and I absolutely adore it.

    2) Gummy and Bobby Kim – “Love Recipe II” , I love the first love recipe song they did for a movie OST but the lyrics mixed with the more slow relaxed pace make this song more my style. Plus I really love the lyrics

    3) Clazziquai- Love Recipe. Same name different song. I really love the coffee house feel of this song about love.

    • Gaya_SB

      omg “Uyire” is amazing! It was sung by Hariharan, right?

      • http://twitter.com/PlumAusten Plum Austen

        Yep. And Chitra. I saw him sing this live in San Francisco one time. Acoustic with Rahman himself playing the keyboard.

    • missdancingfool

      OMG. I didn’t even think about choosing non-Korean songs for this, but I’m so glad you did! Although it’s not my favorite Hindi song, I love love love Suraj Hua Maddham. It’s so spine-tingling.

    • Haibara Christie

      THIS.

    • ybkdik91

      Suraj Hua Maddham gets me every-time. Whenever I hear it, it makes me want to fall in love.

  • intheshort

    I’ma go old school and vote for Always There (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BP_tZBIudHY). You can never go wrong with DBSK and a capella.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/YQ53WK5K4DPXQ5DIBKDELB6WPE Camille

      “Always There” is seriously in my top 10 fave of all DBSK songs and my fave of all their acapellas. So soothing and beautiful. It’s a shame they didn’t perform it more. I think the only time they ever performed it was in their “Rising Sun” tour. :(

  • Iro Mage

    BAP – Happy Birthday, cause I just love that song, and they released it on my birthday so it never fails to make me happy.

    A Thousand Years – Christina Perri, because as much as I hate Twilight and everything to do with it, this song is beautiful and sweet and just peaceful to listen to

    And I’m gonna go really old school on you all: a tie between Lay All Your Love On Me by ABBA and Chemicals React by Aly and AJ, because yah know, can’t go wrong with childhood favs.

    • GracefulCassieShapley

      I love A thousand years! Its definitely a lovely song.

    • Haibara Christie

      Aly and AJ were my childhood faves too! But I would choose “In a Second,” even if it’s on the sad side: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v2LLuoxb_V0

      And I will always support any classic ABBA song.

  • Gaya_SB

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY NABEELA!

    Korean: “You’re Beautiful” by K.Will (the Love of My Life aka my future husband <3)
    Hindi: "Hey Shona" from the movie Ta Ra Rum Pum (silly movie title, but gorgeous song)
    English: "Falling in Love in a Coffee Shop" by Landon Pigg

  • GracefulCassieShapley

    1. CSJH my everything~ its such a light yet gorgeous song and I love the harmonization of these four ladies. Gaah, awesome vocals and beautiful song! What more could I ask for.

    2. Bolero by TVXQ or love in ice, both are quite beautiful songs, especially bolero, which has a nice, dreamy instrumental accompanied by gorgeous vocals and a beautiful yet slightly quirky melody.

    3. Someday I will fly by G.E.M Tsang. Its been my jam for quite some time now, and I love it.

  • ybkdik91

    Back At One – Brian McKnight
    Kabhi Kabhi Mere Dil Mein – Kabhi Kabhi Soundtrack
    Can I Love You ? – Yurisangja

  • Streby

    SHINee’s ‘Romeo+Juliette’

    Soko’s ‘I’ll Kill Her’ (odd choice since its about betrayal but the intensity of her emotion always gets to me)

    The Perishers ‘Nothing Like You and I’; another song that really gets to me, the lyrics are so eloquent and simple.

    There are too many songs but these just came to me now…

  • ajj

    Arashi’s Ninomiya Kazunari – Niji
    Super Junior M – That’s Love
    and Onew – In your eyes

    • Alieen Huang

      just to clarify, That’s Love is Donghae’s solo, but it’s super cute! ^^

  • Alieen Huang

    Super Junior- No Other

    SHINee-Replay

    SNSD-Gee

    Show Lo- Love Expert

  • http://piggy68gal.tumblr.com/ piggy68gal

    Clazziquai – Romeo and Juliet, it was hard, but I chose this among my other favourites She Is and Rapunzel from Clazziquai.
    Kim Jun Hwi – The Sky Above, from What’s Up, Fox! OST. I love the jazzy feel :)
    ChAOS – Kiss Kiss, this is one cute and upbeat song that I love.

    I think all 3 songs listed have the jazzy vibe that I like :)

  • cecedee

    I love EXO’s ‘Angel’ and that beginning part doesn’t bother me. I do agree that Leeteuk’s part from From U should’ve been there though. I have no raging haterade against him, but that line is just too cringe-worthy. Even when Yoo Young Jin said it in their concert version it was not any better lol. And my songs will be :

    1. Super Junior – Lovely Day (Super Show 4 Accoustic ver)
    2. Super Junior KRY – Loving You (Panda & Hedgehog OST)
    3. SHINee – Keeping Love Again
    4. Fly To The Sky – Sea of Love
    5. Super Junior – Sunflower

    Are we allowed to put Japanese songs on this list?

    If so, then definitely Love in the Ice/Bolero by Tohoshinki. (Korean version of Love in the Ice is also fine, but I’m just more used the the Japanese version since it came out first.) The lyrics are absolutely stunning. Love in the Ice is a melancholy and painful love song, while Bolero is about one spreading their wings and learning to fly (in other words, don’t let things get in your way) And it’s enhanced with great harmonization with the 5 members, especially when it’s done live.

    I agree with EXO’s Angel. Both the Korean and Chinese version are fine… I personally like the Chinese one more because I can understand it, and Lu Han’s soft opening is absolutely beautiful. Baekhyun’s is great too, but I guess it’s a little too husky and rich for a soft and delicate opening like this… he kills it in the chorus though!

    My final choice would be Love Light by CN Blue. It’s light and adorable; and while I love Yonghwa’s voice, he sounds the best when he’s singing along with Jonghyun. The lyrics are cheesy enough to make get shivers and go all fuzzy inside (“When I look at you my face goes red, when I see you my heart goes thump thump”) I mean come on, how adorable is that?!

    I really don’t like Secret Love, but Happy Birthday is beautiful
