I know it may be hard to believe, but I have actually faced some days during this countdown series where I was unsure of what I would write about. Today was one of those days. But I have discovered a way to navigate that problem when it arises and that is to simply to pause, look and listen to G.O. Magically something always comes to mind. What came to mind today were thoughts of a fan meeting. I have never experienced a fan meeting of any kind for any artist or group, ever. It then occurred to me that my first fan meeting will be G.O’s first solo fan meeting next year. It furthered occurred to me that the first time I ever saw G.O perform was his first musical on the Korean musical stage. Therefore, to honor this idea of firsts, I am using MBLAQ’s first official fan meeting with their A+ back on 9 January 2011 and dropping it into a Vocal Virtuosity moment: G.O’s golden voice and You’re My +.
You know, I like to think I was spared my sanity by entering G.O fan-land late in the game. True, I would have loved to have joined the journey when G.O began his with Tykeys, and experienced every live performance, every selca shared, every radio broadcast, etc. from the start. But I also believe that there is a time and place for everything that happens in our lives. I am sure I would not have been prepared and perhaps he also would not have been either. <hehe> Because even in looking back at moments that are six, seven, or even ten years old, I still feel the excitement as if these moments were happening real time. Even at my advanced age, G.O still makes my heart flutter like an adolescent about to receive her first kiss when I watch him perform and listen to him sing.
You’re My + is one of my favorites because the sweetness in G.O’s voice is unmistakable when he sings it. Furthermore, this is a song that is a direct homage to MBLAQ’s adoring A+. On the surface it seems as it if it is being sung to one special person ~ ah . . . but therein lies the beauty of the song: it feels as if it is being sung directly to you. Sweetness overload.
난 니 사랑이 필요해 지금 이순간 ~ I need your love right now
