Junsu, Yoochun, and Jaejoong’s music essay, “Their Rooms, Our Story” has recently been released. However, fans who hadn’t obtained a copy of the album yet were disappointed due to Yoochun’s self-composed song being missing. The song, titled “Unnamed Song Pt. 1” or “Song Without a Name Pt. 1,” has now joined the ranks of its fellow album-mates online. Take a listen!
Wow. Obviously, Yoochun’s song isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but this is my favorite track off the album. I admit that I didn’t think much of the preview, but the full song is extremely heartrending. While I do consider myself an emotional person, not many songs have the ability to make me teary (and that ability usually goes away after a few listens). This one has consistently made me somewhat teary. I didn’t even notice that it was eight minutes long, to be honest.
I actually like the fact that the names and some words have been censored during Yoochun’s rap (get it? “Song Without a Name?” It gives the rap this unpolished, rough, and jerky feel that makes it sound like Yoochun is choking out the lyrics, forcing himself to say what he wants to say. Jaejoong’s rapping also improved a lot–I didn’t realize that it was him rapping for a while. It would have been awesome if Junsu had a rapping part, but he get to speak an excerpt from “Mozart!” at the end (which was brilliant and tear-jerking), so I guess that makes up for it. Check out Yoochun’s essay here. The actual song is a little different, but it’ll give you the gist of what the lyrics say.
And my gosh, my favorite part of the song is definitely the sung parts. Jaejoong and Junsu sound gorgeous. I find that Junsu tends to use more vibrato than Jaejoong, so I especially loved his parts here. The notes they have to hit are high, so their voices sounds like they’re wavering when they sing. At times, it almost sounds like they were crying when they were recording this and it adds a lot of emotion to the song.
This was definitely a song composed and sung from the heart. I’m going to have this on replay for a while. And um, Yoochun, where’s the second part?
What do you guys think of the song?
