MV review: Hot Girl by SeeYa

From the slow sad songs to the electronic upbeat rhythm, the Korean female band SeeYa changed radically the singing style making their new song “Hot girl” reveal the girls’ fun, hot and sexy side.

The music video got a fun spirit, with a colourful set and cloths, some wigs and easy but great dance moves. The girls were having fun dancing all over the place repeating as a chorus “One more time” in an electronic sweet voice. That chorus reminded me of “One more time” the song by Daft punk, they keep repeating that phrase in an electronic voice and it’s almost the same beat and rhythm too, I used to love that song.

So the three female changed their destined listeners from depressing sad and heart broken ones to cheerful, fun, and life loving ones. They’re apparently, and correct me if I’m wrong, trying to take off that image that they’ve been representing since their first album in 2006. I personally know few songs of them, like two or three, and they made me sad and broke my heart. So I wasn’t so much of a listener because I don’t like sad songs, but when I saw that music video I liked it, and I liked the idea of changing the style and losing it up sometimes.

I was browsing in a Japanese music web site when I found SeeYa’s MV and I noticed that 61 viewers have seen the video but for their other songs the highest number was 6. I believe that this song will make a big difference in the girls’ career, they had so many awards and prices for their previous albums and singles but this time it’s going to be their big hit.

To make it short, the song is one of those hits that you could listen to all the time without getting tired. You could just put it in your car and raise the volume to the max and drive around to prove you’re cool and fun.

Book Review: Dead until Dark by Charlaine Harris

Dead until dark is the first book of the Southern Vampire Mysteries. The story is told by Sookie Stackhouse, a telepathic waitress that lives in Bon Temps a small town in northern Louisianna. The young lady is in a relationship with Bill, the only vampire that was tempted by that town because it happens to be his hometown.

The vampire is trying to mainstream so he could live in his father’s house, but some crimes were occurred in that quiet small town the thing that made all the suspicious eyes around him.
Being capable to hear people’s thoughts got Sookie to not feel much as a human and meeting Bill got her the consolation that she needed especially that she can’t hear his thoughts, so she found the peace and relief that she always missed.

I liked the line of the story and the way Bill treated Sookie, I just loved it. Even with all the problems and the disapprovement that Sookie’s friends and colleagues had expressed towards their relationship, Bill didn’t seem to be intimidated, he showed his love in different ways and so did she.

At the end of the book, a very supernatural fact happened that made the story be less believable, and that made me feel uncomfortable at first, because I was starting to believe the story and I am not into supernatural things very much.

Charlaine Harris is one of the best writers that write about vampires in a very deep way, and the Sookie Stackhouse series are one of the series that are believable and make you feel like it is real. The story makes you love vampires through Bill’s trusting character and I personally grew attached to him as the story was going on.

Sookie’s character in the other hand doesn’t influence the readers even if she is the one telling the story from her point of view; I just didn’t sympathise with her.

Dead until dark treats the classical problem of relationships between two races and the issues that they get from both races and how they stand in front of them for their love. A very important matter that is real yet common that Harris expressed it in a very well written, smooth reading novel.
