Christmas Countdown 2017 Day 1 – Toxic “Count Down”
It has been too long, hasn’t it? I am scurrying around to finish some last minute Christmas gifts, but I want to get back to posting soon. Things are doing slightly better…although I did get in trouble with my doctor this go round. Oops.
Because this is an annual tradition, let’s get ready to kick off the countdown to Christmas with my favorite Korean band duo – Toxic (also stylized 톡식). I thought it appropriate to start a countdown with…drumroll…”Count Down”! I have gone away from just finding Winter/Christmas related Asian music. This countdown is simply Asian songs that I love. Sort of a seven days of musical gifts and recommendations.
Yes, I have a post about their album Count Down. I love this band. I wish there was more for them music-wise, but it has been awhile since last I checked. In recent years, they have made appearances in drama OSTs. This duo won the first season of KBS’s Top Band. No…it didn’t launch them to instant stardom sadly. But they have put out great albums if you like their style of music.
Their songs “Lonely” and “Into the Night” remain in my list of all-time favorites. I am thinking that this Christmas season, I will focus on songs from the past, from groups that might not necessarily still be active, but whose music I still love.
I hope everyone is gearing up for a safe and lovely holiday season. Until tomorrow.
