Oops….I am a day late, but that’s no matter as I am going to deliver up a sweet, smooth and delicious ballad – a specialty of our five fabulous men with the golden voices. Heart, Mind and Soul, a song from their first Japanese studio album of the same name, is the kind of song you want to slow dance to while gazing into the eyes of your beloved.
I know I have mentioned before how I enjoy when Yunho goes to a deeper range when he sings and here he serves it up nicely opening the song with his soft mellow tones. But when Jae’s delectably smooth mellifluous voice follows, I just feel my heart melting. He sounds so extraordinarily good in this performance.
It goes to an even sweeter level when Yoochun chimes in to add the perfect harmonies to Jae’s voice. This is what makes them so incredibly spectacular. The amazing synergy between their voices really is unmatched. But of course, that goes for all 5 of them.
When the maknae arrives, the song begins to pick up steam. Changmin brings such an urgency with his voice and we cannot help but stand up and listen when he sings that ‘love must come to an end’ begging the question why…why…why?
He then opens the door wide open for my sweet Junsu. And oh boy does my Junie deliver here. He sounds amazing (when doesn’t he, really). With the four harmonies building a gorgeous foundation, Junsu arrives asking why his heart is troubled. He goes on further to say that he will ‘make tonight magical’ and ‘make a wish come true’ – *THUNK*. I believe him. I really believe him.
This is such a gentle and beautiful love song.
When Jae and Junsu close with that gorgeous harmonized note, I about lose my mind. Even though I am not overly religious, I do believe in miracles. Yes, each time I listen to and/or watch these five incredible men perform, I’m pretty confident I am witnessing a bit of a miracle. Or perhaps it was simply good planetary position when these five were brought together.^^
