Yes, this is the reason that just keeps giving! Actually, I think I am slacking a little bit. Another oversight on my part for failing to include this very early cover of G.O, along with his Tykeys band mates, performing the soulful Rise & Fall. Maybe I need to spend some time in fangirl detention.
Complete fangirl fail. Can you believe I also have this one uploaded to my collection on my You Tube channel? How did I miss it?? I completely forgot about it. Yet, in researching for my next 116 Reasons post, Google graciously lead me right to my very own video. Is this a sign of old age????? >.<
I actually love unearthing these early videos of G.O in Tykeys. Every note he sang in those early days were stepping stones leading him to where he is today. In 2007, however, Tykeys were definitely on their way to carving a niche in Korean R&B with their soulful style. They brought that style to British R&B recording artist, Craig David’s 2002 hit (cowritten and featuring Police frontman, Sting), Rise & Fall.
In a grainy video, probably in their practice room, Tykeys added their own brand of Korean neo-soul to the song:
Sometimes I sit and ask myself, is G.O’s love of music even measurable?
