I love singing but i cannot bear singing in front of the crowds. To be able to do my hobby, I found some interesting places to save and share my recordings. Jjajaang.. one of them (really? “THEM”? XD) is Soundcloud.
I started this account 3 years ago, but I actively posted more recordings a year later. I only familiar to Indonesian,Korean and English songs. These are my top cover songs with over 200 plays by today :
1. Loco & Punch – Say Yes (OST Moon Lovers) (399 plays–> 6,916 plays)
My other Smule Cover. Surprisingly, it sets the fastest play record with 399 plays in less than a month.
2. Sheila On 7 – Buat Aku Tersenyum (520 plays –> 1,561 plays)
My group named ourselves as KISsMe. It is the abbreviation of our nicknames (Keke, Icha, Susan and Mega). We played along pretty well when we were back in Melbourne at 2014. We shared so many things. One of them was we love singing. Once we had a sleepover time at Susan’s place, we recorded this song. Susan as the only one who can play guitar,provided us the background music and she sang along with us. We are really happy that this song got a great responses on Soundcloud. 🙂
3. Loco &Punch – Say Yes (OST Moon Lovers) – Cover Bahasa Indonesia (811 –> 1,132 plays)
Well, since my first cover to the original song has gotten so many plays, I tried to create a cover in Bahasa Indonesia. I believe that the song is really the favorite of many so that the plays for this track are also great.
4. Rizky Fabian and Me – Penantian Berharga (smule cover) (974 –> 1,064 plays)
The second time I joined the real singer’s invitation on Smule to sing his song. The respond is incredible. It reaches 600 plays in only 2 months.
5. Sheila On 7 – Anugerah Terindah yang Pernah Kumiliki (712 plays –> 1,041 plays)
I recorded this song with my friend, Susan. She played the guitar and also sang along with me. I guess there are many people love her voice so this recording got a lot of plays. At that time, our friend, Mas Anggit had just bought the new recording tools and we were eager to give a first try recording with those new stuffs. 🙂
6. Big Bang – Loser _ English cover ( 534 plays –> 746 plays)
One day, I was inspired to create my own English cover of a Korean song. Around that time, I was in love with a group called Big Bang. They released the series of digital singles each month during 4 months straight and “Loser” was the first one being released. The song was so popular and I decided to make an English version of it. Using some helps from the translated English lyrics, I worked hard to rephrase and match it with the beat. I uploaded the video lyrics version to my personal Youtube Account and it got relatively many views as well. That was really fun. 🙂
7. Jung Eunji ft Seo In Guk – All For You (279 plays –> 665 plays)
This might be the first song I uploaded to Soundcloud that got “popular”. One day, me and my neighbor Sonya recorded our voices. The Reply 1997 drama was so well known at that time and All For You was one of the OSTs. Sonya took Seo In Guk’s part and I got Eunji’s. Until now,we keep thinking that this song is our own OST 😂
8. IU ft Park Myungsoo – Leon (266 plays–> 552 plays)
One of my Smule covers with another user. This song was composed by IU for the Infinity Challenge Music Festival 2015. 🙂
9. Afgan ft Me – Percayalah (332 plays–> 527 plays)
Anddd here it is.. one of my absurd experiences. I was virtually singing a duet with the real singer, afgan. Yeah, probably you may also take a look at this video
See the difference? Haha.. like i have stated before, I am completely aware of my awkward expression. I mean it. That was absurd man,, too much XD
10. Hyorin ft. Jooyoung – Erase (380 plays –> 514 plays)
Hyorin is a female singer from a group called SISTAR and she is famous with her strong vocal. I was late to know about this song and once I listened to it, I really liked it. Her and Jooyoung’s voice were blended really well. If I did a cover, I need to prepare two voices, for both male and female. I did both at that time! So I became the female and male voice. I was pretty satisfied to the result so I uploaded it to my Soundcloud 🙂
old entries (other > 200 plays songs)
(-) OST Tersanjung (405 plays –> 458 plays)
I don’t know why this song got popular on my Soundcloud. I guess it’s because of the misleading title. I didn’t put “cover” to the title so they might be mis-clicked it. The quality of the sound wasn’t great. Even I almost forget when i recorded this song. So.. yeah. Random things happen easily sometimes 😂
(-). Afgan ft Rossa – Kamu yang Kutunggu (207 plays –> 443 plays)
Nowadays,i found my new “playground” called Smule. This apps allowed me to sing karaoke and also record my voice with some special effects. I played it for 4 months now. When i started my account,i found a user who has a great voice and i recorded a song through his open invitation. The song was uploaded only 4 months ago yet it has already been played for over 200 times for now 🙂
(-). Christina Perry – A Thousand Years (271 plays –> 403 plays)
I visited Mas Anggit’s place to accompany my friend who want to record a congratulary song for his brother’s wedding. At a short break,we recorded this song with Mas Anggit’s guitar playing. The sound was really shabby since it was only one take. 😂
(-). Bruno Mars – Count on Me (213 plays –> 307 plays)
Probably this song is the second one that makes me keep wondering why it has more plays than i thought. It has no music, contains only my voice and the duration is only 28 secs. I uploaded it simply because of the noise-clear sound.
(-). Westlife – Flying without Wings (214 plays –> 281 plays)
With only one Westlife’s song,my friend got almost 1000 plays for her first Soundcloud post. I felt a bit jealous (*please forgive me*) and decided to recorded my own and I pretty much failed. Lesson learned: don’t do anything due to jealousy 😂
Well,those are my 10 top Soundcloud posts (and some older covers after updating the ranks) . It might seem that I wrote this post for nothing but bragging myself or maybe you think “so what? You don’t have that many plays though” etc. Haha.. well (beside this is my personal blog so i am free to post anything, soo :-p ) I just want to share some of my hard works when i do something outside my main job and it is related to my hobby.
We need to balance our activities. You may have your job and also keep doing your hobby to entertain yourself (and maybe others as well) 🙂
Be happy everyone. 😀
