The Forgotten #12 – Golf Mike ‘Get Ready’
So, I’ve been watching the Thai edition of hit Korean drama Full House and starring in it is Thai singer and actor Mike D. Angelo. Mike is one half of Thai duo Golf Mike comprised of two brothers. Golf being the eldest. These two have done work in China and even worked with Johnny’s in Japan. I’m not 100% certain what led me to buy one of their albums on iTunes, but it was back last year or so when I had discovered Thai dramas and music. Get Ready is I think is their last full length Thai album before they started pursuing acting and solo careers. They have released a greatest hit album earlier this year.
Get Ready is a good album and a big mix of genres. They do dance, hip hop, pop, and ballads. I’m not 100% a fan of every song on this album, I won’t lie, but I do like the album over all and watching Full House has be going back and listening to Golf Mike once more. In this album Golf and Mike each wrote and produced one track. I highly recommend checking out their Thai, Chinese, and Japanese releases, their albums as a duo and their solo albums. They are very talented. Although…I’m not a huge fan of some of Golf’s music…but it’s just not a genre I really like, but he does have some good solo songs. I do like most of Mike’s solo works.
Released: 12 December 2008
Buy on iTunes
01. Let’s Get Down feat. Khan of Thaitanium
The opening song is a dance/hip hop song. Not my favorite on the album, but definitely not a bad opening.
02. ยิ่งรักยิ่งเจ็บ [Ying Ruk Ying Jeb]
After the opening dance track we are hit with a beautiful ballad. This song is one of my favorites.
03. คว้าลม [Kwah Lom]
We then go to another dance/pop song. This one is quite catchy.
04. ไม่พอดี ไม่ดีพอ [Mai Paw Dee Mai Dee Paw]
From pop we go to a more R&B song. These guys definitely produce diverse music. Another beautiful song.
Another addictive dance track you can bob your head along to and sing along with some of the English parts.
06. You [Written by Mike]
Another song that has a more R&B feel to it. Lots of English in this song.
07. ขุมทรัพย์สุดขอบฟ้า (โฆษณาชาเขียว) [Koom Sup Soot Kaub Far]
This is a dance song that I believe was part of the OST for their first drama. But don’t quote me at that.
08. อยู่ไหนก็ไม่เหงา [Yoo Nai Gaw Mai Ngow]
This is another beautiful ballad. I really do love their ballads and most of their pop/dance songs.
09. จะไปส่งให้ถึงมือ [Ja Pai Song Hai Teung Meu]
Again, great ballad. The start has an R&B feel to it.
10. My Super Star [Written & produced by Golf]
Another dance song with lots of English to sing along with.
11. ยิ่งรักยิ่งเจ็บ (Special Version) [Ying Ruk Ying Jeb (Special Version)]
I’m excited to try these songs out! After Full House I keep trying to find Thai music that I like.
Not that you’d want to since the posts are evil and long, but in my monthly music posts, I always feature some new Thai discoveries that I’ve fall in love with 🙂 I highly recommend checking out Thai band Instinct. They are awesome. Plus they’ve done some collaborations with Japanese band WEAVER!
I tried listening to all the music on your music post once…it took a long time! And that was with dropping any song that couldn’t catch me in the first 30 seconds…
I’ve been getting better and they’ve been getting smaller, lol. Still, they are quite long.
So what do you think of Full House Thai? Were you a fan of the original? My daughter refuses to even watch the new one because she feels like that would be betraying Rain:); however, I think Full House Thai is beautiful . . .I mean literally, it is a visual treat with all those blues. The blog The Problematic of the Unproblematic has HILARIOUS recaps of each episode that you might enjoy as well; they are how I found out about the show. http://dr-myri-blog.blogspot.ch/search/label/Full%20House
I was *once* a fan of the original. I’ve tried to rewatch it multiple times but just can’t make it through the entire series again. I’m not quite sure how that works, lol. I have no problem watching remakes. Sometimes it’s hard to get over the original, but other times it all works out okay and I’m enjoying this drama with its random English conversations and Mike’s very awful phone skills. I’ll have to check out their recaps now 🙂 Thanks for letting me know about them.
After reading this, I listened their songs🎵🎧 and I must say their voice is mesmerizing🎶 their songs are cathy, soothing, dancing vibes ✨ tysm for recommendation 🙂 this duo golf Mike is osmmmm.. Hope to listen from them soon.. Hope they would do their reunion soon 😭💕
I think they had a brief comeback a year or two or more ago…they are pretty much focusing on their solo careers in acting and music.
