Thai music may be an acquired taste, I don't know. But I've really come to love some artists and genres. It ranges for me between morlam, which is basically Thai Country music from Isaan (Siripon further below is a prime example), to pop music and rock ballads most of which aren't favorite genres for me in the west. You can add your own too, if you have some too, but just Thai music please.

This guy is my favorite, Maleehuana:

And Siripon's voice is my favorite. Thai videos do these mini-movies and scenarios all the time, so you have to wait a bit (or skip ahead 1:50) for the song. But these trucks that drive around with a loud speaker, telling you how much their stuff costs, and the good girl who is overshadowed by the sexy girl... SO Thailand:

And this song is probably her most famous. But when you hear me talk about "Festival Fights" and the stage of dancers that's always near the boxing ring - this is what it's like.

Baowee is awesome. He's all about love ballads and he often sings them atop airplanes because he used to be in the Airforce. Someone realized he kicked ass at Karaoke night and he got a record deal. Seriously.

This one is about the lonely moth being in love with the flame.

And this one is about asking the moon to tell this chick he loves her.

I have to say that Thai morlam country music has really surprised me. It often has oddly hypnotic Reggae-like beats, and a crooning voice. When it hits the sweet spot it is very good. Contemporary Thais tend to see it as old person music, or red-neck music. It's kinda incredible.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say I actually really enjoy the stupid/ridiculous thai generic pop songs. I enjoy them more for the silliness itself over the actual song value.

I know this song, hahaha.

There's this AMAZING video I see on TV sometimes where the singer arrives at the festival and this super sexy chick asks him to sign her breast. He gets a nosebleed as he does so. The song is so great but I don't know the lyrics, the singer, or the name :(

I could not find this song on Youtube because I didn't know what it was called, but we just found it on a mix-CD we bought at a gas station on our last fight trip. I love this song. The video cracks me up, every damn time (mostly the nose bleed at the beginning) but it's so catchy I'd make it my "walkout song" in a minute.

It's pretty much about this guy taking his girlfriend home and her "bouncing" and dancing in front of the stage gets all the older, higher-status men of this dude's family to blush and be... excited. It's basically "Super Freak" for Isaan, hahahaha.

A Siripong Ampaipong Playlist of 15 songs. She's called the Mother of Morlam, Kevin calls her the Patsy Cline of Thailand.

Yellow Fang are my fav.

 

Also, deungdutjai.com is a really good site for learning lyrics to Thai songs.
