The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 104

As much as I honestly believe in my heart of hearts that G.O deserves and should record a solo album (if it is his dream or wish), he is and will always remain an amazing and powerful component in a group or duet. I wrote about his duet work in my 116 Reasons series and included his work with Brown Eyed Soul’s Jung Yup. When I look at the list of G.O’s duets over the course of his career, I’d have to say MNet’s A-Live performance of You Are My Lady is probably my favorite of G.O’s duets (if I am looking at his work outside of the parameters of either Tykeys or MBLAQ, that is).

G.O and Jung Yup are brothers from another mother, seriously. The tone and timbre in both of their voices are so similar, rich and balanced. Equally powerful are either’s ability to go tenderly falsetto creating an aching and longing in this beautiful song from Jung Yup’s first album, Thinkin’ Back on Me which was released in 2008.

Jung Yup and G.O are two vocalists with neo-soul R&B flowing in their collective veins. For real.

This song. This is one of those songs that pierces my heart from every angle. The melody. The lyrics. The arrangement, especially the quiet piano that forms a forlorn foundation cradling their voices ever so tenderly. Above all else though are the voices of these two incredible vocalists, and the soft and gentle way they sing this song. Multiple arrows to the heart.

Inside my heart filled with foolish hope
I keep thinking
You will come back to me . . .

I love watching G.O sing. It is mesmerizing. Part of what makes G.O so attractive is that he is living his dream. Watching an artist become enveloped in his dream creates a beauty that will forever surpass anything in the physical realm. That said, to me G.O is still the most attractive of them all (inside and out).

    That is definitely an awesome duo… and as you said the music, the lyrics, the voices… the total vibe they have going on. And you described it beautifully (as you usually do).
    G.O. has looks, brains and talent… and he’ll reach whatever goals he sets for himself. I know you & the rest of his fans will be right behind him every step of the way!

      This is one of my absolute favorites of G.O’s duets…perhaps my fave next to his work with Baek Su Kyung in Tykeys. He and Su together are a force to be reckoned with! I love his duet with as well, as I adore G.O’s work opposite female vocalists, a lot. But You are My Lady is so lovely. I am very grateful theses early performances are so readily available. I confess to revisiting this one quite often, it is so beautiful.

      I think if I tried to separate from G.O I would not be able to do it. I am in for the long haul. Wherever his career takes him, whatever he does, I will be there to support him, always.~^^
