Taeyeon’s first EP must have done really well in Korea because she is about to release her second and it’s only been about eight months.

The lead single for the upcoming effort, entitled Starlight, has a lot of potential to be a good, smooth summer jam.  The production has just the right sound and the DΞΔN feature, while short, does nothing but enhance the track.  The problem is that Taeyeon doesn’t really start sounding invested in what she’s singing until nearly two-thirds of the way through the track.  Her tone is one that doesn’t seem to quite fit her as she seems to be trying to imitate BoA at times (something we really wish she would stop doing) and the lack of adlibs makes it even flatter.

It’s not awful, but it could have been way better and turns out to be something somewhat forgettable.

pop!gasa is our starlight…

Lyrics:
Love is amazing ah

You are my starlight, shine on my heart
When I’m with you, it feels like I’m dreaming all day
You are my starlight, I get so happy
Your love is like a gift

I was used to being alone, my days were gray
But I remember the day you lightly came to me, knocking on my door
You shined on me like a light
Woke me up from darkness
Opened the closed door of my heart

Reflected in my eyes is your squinted eyes
You’re smiling behind that awkward face
You’re so lovable, I couldn’t hold back
I discovered you like a miracle, you always make me smile
You are my starlight

You are my starlight, shine on my heart
When I’m with you, it feels like I’m dreaming all day
You are my starlight, I get so happy
Your love is like a gift

Meaningless, everyday things
Are now like new as if I’ve seen the world for the first time
I’m surprised every day
You’ve changed me
You drew a new me onto my empty face

You are my starlight
(You You You You You You)
Shine on my heart
When I’m with you, it feels like I’m dreaming all day
(Feels like I’m dreaming, you’re my yeah)
You are my starlight, I get so happy
(Oh, No No No No)
Your love is like a gift

Even on rainy days, you clear up my heart
The moment I saw you, I’m only filled with you
Just looking at you makes joy spread on my lips
You’re the only one who can make me smile like this

You are my starlight, I can’t hide it
When we’re together, it feels like my heart is dancing
You are my starlight, I’m so thankful
Your love is like a dream

You are my starlight
My emotion, you feel me?
Look at me, shining like a star
I realize every day
You are my starlight

Yeah Oh (Oh Yeah)
Yeah (My baby baby)
