Sweet Sorrow – Remakes…

서태지와 아이들 Seo Tai Ji & Boys – “Come back home”
Track 4 / Vol. 4 / Released 5 Oct 1995

Here’s Sweet Sorrow’s interpretation of the song, with a slow blues intro, then moving into a pop beat in a moderate tempo. Finally, they touched up the song with a more energetic beat and some exciting rapping! No wonder the audience was all hyped up =)

Live on Showvival (Nov 2007 ?)

Live at Seo TaiJi’s 15th anniversary concert


I think Sweet Sorrow was paying tribute to the host of the TV show, Kim Dong Ryul, who’s also a singer, by singing a medley of his songs. Looooove their mellow singing of 2년만에 at the beginning. Well, the bits and pieces of other songs (J’s Bar에서 – 욕심쟁이 – 사랑한다는 말) they threw in, and the constant returns of 2년만에, were hilarious ^^

이승환 – 천일동안
Lee Seung Hwan – “Cheon il dong an (For a thousand days)”

It’s interesting they chose to sing a Western pop song and a Korean pop song together. Kept wondering why until the last bit where they mixed the choruses of the two songs. On another note, 천일동안 was arranged by David Campbell from the US. Perhaps that was another reason for the choice.
