9 Captivating Songs to Set You for #TAEYEONinManila

The beloved leader of “The Nation’s Girl Group” Girls’ Generation, Kim Taeyeon, is coming to Manila to hold her concert “’s…” for the very first time on December 14! It is not surprising therefore that with the excitement of every Filipino SONE for this event, they managed to sell out tickets in just five minutes!

Talks are still on the way for a second day but for now, whether you already have your ticket or still praying for that added chance to see her, check out some of our top Taeyeon songs that we believe capture her vocal prowess and versatility. And we’re pretty sure listening to them would make you more excited to see her perform them live, right?

And so without further ado, here we go!

I (feat. Verbal Jint)

I – The 1st Mini Album

A mix of rock, pop, and hip hop (which is expected because Verbal Jint is there, come on), “I” is really one of the easy favorites even for non-fans! The beautiful timbre of Taeyeon’s voice and the really catchy wavy “I” are just some of its distinct characteristics.

U R

I – The 1st Mini Album

Many fans say that “U R” is a lot simpler than the previous track (as this also appears in the same album as “I”) but this does not mean that it is less beautiful. In fact, it is one of Taeyeon’s most romantic songs!

Fine

My Voice – The 1st Album

This Taylor Swift-ish song is one of a kind, one of Taeyeon’s best releases in our opinion. It starts slow and soft, until you reach the chorus and bridge and her amazing vocals just blows you away!

There’s nothing too much to say about this song other than minimalistically beautiful. An acoustic with a bit of piano soothed by her soft voice, Taeyeon just proves herself that even in this genre, she is an amazing vocal artist.

Why

Why – The 2nd Mini Album

Venturing into tropical house (a sound which, as far as SM Entertainment is concerned, reminds us SHINee), this summer bop is commented as a favorable departure from Taeyeon’s signature sound. And it is! Just shows how much of a dynamic artist Taeyeon is.

Starlight

Why – The 2nd Mini Album

Collaborating with DEAN, this pop and R&B fusion is really pleasant to the ears! And it is equally romantic, too. Oh how we wished DEAN would be here to perform this with her.

Something New

Something New – The 3rd Mini Album

Beautifully sultry, Taeyeon’s voice and the piano melody make the perfect match to express a yearning for the unfamiliar.

Circus

Something New – The 3rd Mini Album

Circus brings us back to the signature Taeyeon style but it is just as equally well-executed and beautifully sang that even if it rings so much of the classic Taeyeon, we could never get enough of it. Try not to fall in love with her vocals in this.

Rain

TAEYEON ‘Rain’

Slow, jazzy, and despite being melancholic, it is definitely one of the most soothing songs to come from Taeyeon. As the title suggests, it is one of the best songs during the rainy season, but with such vocals, even if it isn’t drizzling outside you may still find yourself listening to this.
