It was a lot harder narrowing down my favorite songs to only 5 with DBSK/HoMin (hope you don’t mind me using them interchangeably) than it was with JYJ mostly because HoMin have so many albums! Gosh this was difficult Even with three members down, I am so amazed and proud at how much Changmin and Yunho have grown vocally. Changmin is my ultimate bias, so it goes without saying I love everything about him, including his absolutely amazingly fabulously (and so on) versatile voice. Seriously, have you heard this man? He can go from such deep tones to controlled sing-screaming and everything in between. And Yunho, I’m proud of how much he has grown vocally. I admit I preferred his voice when they were DB5SK because he used a much lower register, but even with a higher register with Changmin he still sounds great.
Anyways without further ado my list of my favorite HoMin songs from no.5 to no.1
No. 5 - Before U Go
From TVXQ duo’s first comeback album Keep Your Head Down, this song is just amazing. Come on, it’s hard to resist the sexy beat and deep, raw, sensual power of this song. I swear this song and Changmin’s screams made me drop my jaw in shock. I was definitely not expecting that as such an awesome comeback song! The MV, the cop version and the dance version, are also made to perfection, and while you can’t hear the hip thrusts in the song, you can just imagine them -drool-. This is definitely a song that I can’t forget!
No. 4 - I think U Know
I couldn’t find the studio version because all the youtube links are copyrighted, but here is a live version which is just as good! This song is from Tohoshinki’s TONE album. I just love everything about this song. It’s so fast and upbeat and really makes you bop your head and before you know it start bouncing along. It really showcases Yunho’s musical ability and I think the background techno music really brings it out. It makes for a great song at the gym and when you just want to start dancing randomly!
No. 3 - She
This song comes off their Keep Your Head Down album and I absolutely fell in love with it the first time I heard it. It is my favorite song form that album. I love this sweet, romantic and slow melody combined with Yunho and Changmin’s duets. It’s so sweet and I feel like they are singing the song right to me. It’s not quite a ballad but not quite a pop song either, I feel like it’s a great hybrid between the two. -sigh- I just love it!
No. 2 - Catch Me
I. am. in. love. with. this. comeback. Period. I think this is the best comeback DBSK has ever had, aside from Mirotic. The song, the dance, the clothes and the men. Oh my god, this is a fan girl dream right here. I love the upbeat song mixed with a small amount of techno and dubstep. Changmin and Yunho’s voices are absolutely *perfect*. I love how they slow it down sometimes and draw out their notes, teasing us, and then pick it right back up to deliver the power of the song. “Catch me if you wanna” - oh dear gosh, yes I do! It’s just so addictive and I haven’t stopped listening to it since it came out!
No. 1 - Back to Tomorrow
In case you haven’t picked up by now, I love ballads/slow pop songs. And this song is absolutely a perfect combination of both. This song is also from TONE and it possibly my favorite track off the album (hard to choose because that album was just awesome!). I love the back ground music of this song first of all, it’s such a sweet and regretful tone but laced with enough pop to keep me interested. The actual singing of this song blows me away. At first I couldn’t even concentrate on the music because Changmin’s voice was just so amazing. His voice dips between lower and higher registers and the “Back, back, back” verse is my favorite. The duet between the two is at it’s best here. This is yet another song that I can continuously listen to for months on end and never get bored!
This would actually be No.6 and the reason I include it is because it was originally a TV5XQ song remade with just HoMin. And shockingly I preferred the HoMin version over TV5XQ. But to be fair the studio version of TV5XQ’s Maximum will never be released so you can only hear it from the speakers of the dance practice. However, I loved this song a lot and I wished they used it instead of KYHD as their main comeback song. I love both Yunho and Changmin’s vocals and how their higher voices and rougher voices matched better than Jaejoong or Yoochun’s smoother voices. The powerful song demands an edge and I think the HoMin version delivers it better. Anyway, thoughts?
