Have you ever come across a singer you could put on continuous play and listen to all day long?
Jung Joon Young sits at the top of that list for me. When his songs come up on my playlist, I'm never content to listen to it just once! My hand clings to the mouse and requests replay more than once as I close my eyes and sit back to savor each and every note. His velvet smooth voice joined with a seemingly effortless power mesh together to bring a rocker sound that melts me to the core.
Someone has to really move me to get a comment on You Tube. He earned this one when I first viewed Spotless Mind.
