[MV Review] Ailee - Singing Still Puts Me To Sleep



Short review: Like most of Ailee's songs, if you love vocalists overdoing it, this is your track. For people like me, well, it's a pass as usual. And no, I won't blindly support Ailee just because I dislike allkpop.



I don't really like this song, then again, I've never been a huge fan of Ailee. Her vocals overpower the (weak) instrumental, and I just don't like it when vocals overpower the instrumental. I honestly blame my dissatisfaction with vocalists because of shit like Whitney Houston "interpreting the song in their own way" shit instead of allowing their voice to simply work together with how the song was created. No, we can't have that shit.

As for the story, Lee Joon and Ailee started dating after they saw each other's nude photos/videos, so they thought it was natural for them to hook up. However, Ailee can't cook for shit, so Lee Joon was seeing another chick at the same time.

This song is as bad as Ailee's cooking.

His face says it all.

  1. The song is like an OST for cheesy k-drama and as much as I love listening to belted high notes that are executed perfectly, this song is just crap.

    1. Hey, there are some good OSTs for Kdramas, but yeah, 90% follow the same cookie-cutter formula, so I usually don't like them unless I like the vocalist lol.

  2. I lie Ailee's vocals, but you're right about the weak instrumentals though. Since I like Joon, that face he made will go down in history for me XD

  3. Song is pretty bland, there has yet to be any good releases this year, the seeya's newest release is the best one so far

    thank god some1 said it. she was boring beyonce imitation singer before and allkpop being assholes wont change that fact. i only give this song a plus cause it sounds different. i wish ailee would compose a song at least 90 percent just so she can develop a style. i was going to say i like this song cause it sounds like her style but i heard k will made it. i want to know what ailee sounds like for a change.

  5. That gif is so funny, the look of anticipation of good food as he stuffs his face turns to ash when he realizes Ailee's bulgogi tastes like shit.

    IS THAT A METAPHOR? HE'S CHEATING ON HER BECAUSE HER... AHEM, "BULGOGI" TASTES LIKE SHIT
