Song of the Day: Don’t

“Don’t” by 조규찬 (Jo Kyu-chan, or Cho Kyu Chan which seems to be the romanization of choice) on his album Guitology continues to be one of my favorite songs. I love the lazy vibe and simple lyrics – it’s the perfect antidote to a stressful day!


Everything Will Be Fine
Though Things Are Going Crazy
Don’t You Worry My Friend

It Will Just Be Alright
Though The Sky Falls Down On You
Don’t You Worry My Friend

Feed Your Fish, Clean Your Room
Take A Walk and look up to the sky
Don’t Be Afraid, I’ll Be There
Next To You
Holding Tight, Your Hand
It Will Just Be Alright
Though The Sky Falls Down On You

Song of the Day: “Te Necesito”

Te necesito is one of my favorites from the album “Estrella de mar” by the Spanish group Amaral. This version is a duet, sung by Eva Amaral and Beto Cuevas (formerly of the Chilean group La Ley), but there is a solo version done by Amaral on the album as well.

The album is available on iTunes; check it out!

Lyrics / Letras

Oh, Ohhhhh.
Como quieres que me aclare
si aun soy demasiado joven
para entender lo que siento
pero no para jurarle
al mismisimo angel negro
que si rompe la distancia
que ahora mismo nos separa
volvere para adorarle
le daria hasta mi alma
si trajera tu presencia
a esta noche que no acaba


Te necesito
Como a la luz del sol
en este invierno frio
‘pa’ darme tu calor

Oh, Ohhhhh…
Como quieres que te olvide
Si tu nombre esta en el aire
y sopla entre mis recuerdos
si ya se que no eres libre
si ya se que yo no debo
retenerte en mi memoria
asi es como yo contemplo
mi tormenta de tormento
asi es como yo te quiero


Oh, Ohhh…
como quieres que me aclare
Oh, Ohhh…amor
como quieres que te olvide


Te necesito
Como a la luz del sol
tus ojos el abismo
donde muere mi razon

Oh, Ohhh…
Te necesito
Te necesito
Te necesito
Te necesito

Amaral has a new album out – “Hacia lo Salvaje” – and has current tour dates in Europe.

The new album is also available on iTunes. I know what I’ll be listening to this week!

Song of the Day: “You Exist In My Song”

A friend of mine saw the Hong Kong film, “Love in the Buff,” and came away enchanted with the voice and melody of one of the songs used in the film. The singer performs under the name Wanting, and the song was “Drenched.”

According to her bio, she was born in China and now makes her home in Vancouver. Wanting Qu released her debut album in 2012, Everything in the World, and it’s a lovely listen.

The song from her 2-song single, Drenched, that I most enjoy is “You Exist in My Song.”
