As you know, Vocal Virtuosity moments come in all shapes and sizes here on the Countdown. From short samples to full length songs, I honor all where G.O’s voice is the main attraction. Today is a short sample offering. And, as always, a beautiful vocal moment from our gentle main vocal man. At the 2nd Official Japan Fan Meeting on 12 August 2011, G.O serenaded his JA+ with a few lines from Kim Bum Soo’s 네버 엔딩 스토리 [Neverending Story] and no doubt created an ache for more.
If you have never taken a moment to listen to the original version of Kim Bum Soo’s 네버 엔딩 스토리 [Neverending Story], I urge you have a listen because I am certain it will make you want to hear G.O cover it in its entirety. It is a gentle ballad that is a song about loving, letting go and living with the hope of meeting again. This is only a taste, but it is enough to land itself into the Vocal Virtuosity archives.
I am definitely putting this one on my personal list of songs I wish to hear G.O cover again more gently and from more of his chest voice in the deeper end of his vocal range. And, in a scenario much like I have watched Bum Soo himself perform it: Under the soft spotlight on a dimly lit stage with only a single guitar accompaniment. Just the man, and his voice. It would be perfect.
