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'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 acutal 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.

When I was Thailand there was almost always Thai music put on during training at the gym. Usually the same CD over and over again - but also some pop music when the kids synched their phone with the speaker and put their playlist on. It's Lamnammoon Muay Thai Gym in Isaan so possibly a lot of morlam style on the CDs.

Now the only song that stayed with me up until now is this rap song that made the buzz on the internet while I was there - a worldwide kind of buzz I think, not just in Thailand. One of the Thai boys at Lamnammoon's actually put it on that one time at the end of a morning session. Heavy political song. I don't know the real impact it had in the country and couldn't speak to the Thais about it because I don't speak Thai - even if I did I'm not sure I would've dared lol.

There's English subtitles to the clip so we can get a little what's going on. Apart from being moved by this kind of message, I just really like the beat and the flow of their voices.

 

After hearing that song I looked up some other Thai rap songs - I didn't really go deep in my research at all. The most famous rapper in Thailand seems to be "Rapper Terry" (his YouTube account has millions of subscribers). I like this song of his he did featuring another rapper called Chee Genozide. No idea what's being said though.

Rap Against Dictatorship was huge, and it was really cool to see. The government threatened to arrest not only the people who made it, but anyone who liked or shared it. But as the millions of likes started to accumulate, that idea went out the window. They did respond with their own song, 'Thailand 4.0', which is basically an embarrassingly lame pro-junta song. It was like some strange rap battle.

I want to listen to all your favorites but I thought I’d add one first. I really like Thai country which doesn’t even crack my top 3 over here but I found a Thai rapper named IllSlick. He sings in Thai and English is some of his songs but also does ballads also. He’s my favorite artist at the moment. This one is on my playlist.

I find it funny that the government responded with a rap song. Thanks for the infos. I had wondered whether the members of RAD ended up in jail or worse. Since they got so popular maybe the government didn't want to make martyrs out of them? Like in the movie Gladiator lol...

So far, so good. Some of them recently flew to Norway to pick up a 'Creative Dissent' award for the song.

I started listening to Thai rap as a new way to learn Thai and ended up really getting into some of it. Illslick isn't the kind of artist I'd usually listen to back home but some of his songs have become earworms for me. Youngohm is the same, he's kind of ridiculous but I love this song:

 Also this one by OG-ANIC:

 Anyway, the real reason I came to this thread was to add Milli, a 17-year old female rapper I recently read about in BK Magazine

    • Do the Running Drills. It can help in improving your power and athleticism by increasing movements in planes of motion. At first, it looks a little strange but after some practice and some focus. Do forward and lateral running! Also you can try shutter Runs. Also there's a main role of diet in that. Have some quality crabs, lean protein and healthy fluids!!
    • Thank you for advice.  The opponent's gym changed date again so I called the whole thing off and will wait for proper pro lethwei fight instead or possibly try to get a match in Thailand when I go back there in March. 
    • I can tell you the most important aspect of kickboxing.. Kickboxing is all about integrating your kicks and punches in a fluid, lyrical manner, such that your punches set up your kicks and your kicks set up your punches. Most individuals who try Kickboxing do it with their fists first, then walk around a bit before striking with their feet. They're kicking, then boxing; they're not doing Kickboxing. Mastering the ability to mix your kicks and punches in a smooth manner with right kickboxing gloves and Shin Pads , seamless way takes time and patience. If you stick with it, you'll soon be kicking and hitting like Chuck Norris!

    • This with an inner circle around the owner / trainer...   And new bees have difficult to come forward.  Here, get also the proper education they are de facto paying for, both in their time, effort and often also good money. The phenomena is common! A generous host / owner, whom can create a warm, welcoming athmosphere, is the remedy.   But its not always (seldom)  the reality....   Ps.  A standard way worth to try with, is to anyway work as hard and as well you can. Often enough, with time they will see you ARE a hardworker, not whining for nothing, and with time, accept you in their circle and perhaps even, their cameradeship.  If they dont; you hadnt lost much anyway, because your effort will repay for yourself this way or another.  Ps.  I believe THIS was the way Sylvie did, when she did come to Petchungrang, a male gym...  Showing she is a hardworker, she won their acceptance.   In this case, as its typically a male dominated milieu, it becomes extra difficult for most females. Sorrowfully but true, this is a common experience for most women in many situations... In war and in peace. That is a heavy reason why most women kept themselves into typically female occupations, and typically female sports... It needs extra determination, and tough skin for a female to be succesfull. in a traditionally male area. Getting massive flak from many men, but sometimes also, from other women...   I dont have any good advices nor easy solutions at this moment,   I just want to mention it; the problems are a common experience for many females whom want to go forward in a male dominated milieu... And thus, it will help to network with other females (and sympathisers) in martial sports, as here in this forum, but also, networking with almost any other ambitious females, should give some help and mental relief..   Its almost only the so called  boygirls, or tomboys, whom manage comfortably in male milieus; they are used to play and work with boys and later on males, and agree with them, "speak on equal and friendly terms"
    • To me this is huge. The worrying trend that all of Thailand would start to be pushed toward new "Entertainment Muay Thai" action-first models, reducing clinch and devaluing high-level defensive skills gets exciting news in this. Lumpinee already has remodeled itself on hyper-modern, commercialized Muay Thai meant for an international audiences (not necessarily quality or skill set), becoming distinctly non-Thai in many ways. Regular MMA promotion will have its debut as part of the New New Lumpinee Stadium in January. It had me concerned that everything was just going to slide in one direction, some promotions much more than others, but all of them shifting. Things change fast in Thailand once they get going, and one never knows where it can swerve. But Lumpinee GoSport shows are already mixed shows, with "real" lower level Muay Thai on a card, also with something like "Entertainment Muay Thai" as well (these fights are only 3 rounds, but it's unclear if it's judged in the clash-only, Channel 8 ruleset). This New New Lumpinee approach was probably somewhat mimicking the mixed cards of ONE, where Kickboxing, MMA and modified rules Muay Thai (in the Entertainment, clinchless style) have had success. It's quite startling that Superchamp and Hardcore, which after the demise of MAX Muay Thai, have been the spearhead of Entertainment Muay Thai promotion would open itself up to 5 round, regular rules Muay Thai. It's not completely clear if they will be judging in a traditional clinch and defense can win style, or if the "if you back up you lose" rules will be in effect (a big, important deal). At the very least it shows that a variety of rule set fights on a promotion are being seen as the way forward, and it sets up a direct comparison and competition between Lumpinee GoSport and Superchamp/Hardcore (Channel 8), not to mention the coming Fairtex mixed card promotions that are soon due in Lumpinee as well. The move towards 5 round fights by Superchamp/Hardcore at the very least shows that even in the "Entertainment Muay Thai" model, which Superchamp/Hardcore has a firm lead in, they see incorporating more or less traditional Muay Thai as an advantage. Maybe it's to raise the value of the brand and bring more widespread legitimacy? Saying: we are not just "entertainment" fighting. Maybe they'll bring in bigger Thai names and compete with the transformations that are happening at Lumpinee? At the very least it gives more foothold to the value of traditional kinds of Muay Thai, and a desire to braid things together. These kinds of moves, across promotions, also coincidentally raise the value of foreign fighters in the country. As more and more promotions embrace mid- and low- tier skill set matchups, which are almost always Thai vs non-Thai, and the more these promotions take a bigger slice out of the Muay Thai pie, the more non-Thai fighters are needed.
