Thailand is a country with a well-developed private show business. Thai popular music sounds on television, heard of cars and bars. Of course, in the cities and in the resorts you can hear world hits, both modern and old enough. But in my opinion the majority of Thais, especially Taek prefer to listen to the songs in their native language for yourself and watch Thai clips, which have some of the features and differences from Western. Below, we briefly talked about these features and includes a collection of Thai clips that I personally like, and many Thais.
The second assertion (Thais love to placed below the Thai clips) is not just my opinion: many of these popular Thai songs at one time occupied a leading position in the local music charts. What are the features of modern Thai pop music? Firstly, the very direction of such music in the Land of Smiles is called «string» music. The second feature of the Thai show business — the presence of a large number of Thais mongrel.
It lyukryngi — children of mixed marriages between Thais and farangs (although correct to say between sly and farang) often act as singers, and if the soloist group or individual artist yet blooded Thai, then starring in music videos still perform all the same lyukryngi. By the way, the attitude of the Thais themselves to such «stalking» in Thailand may seem to some a bit strange: they not only are not considered human beings «second-class», as someone might think, but on the contrary — they are respected, they want to be like and etc.
A lot of young and secretly envy them all, because despite the daily whitening of the skin on the face and body, they will never become as bright as lyukryngi. But this is a topic for another article, but here we are still on the Thai popular music. Another feature of Thai music, or rather the Thai music videos — is the presence of many dialogues and thoughtful story.
Because of this music video can last much longer than the length of the song. It looks as follows: The clip begins with a dialogue or some other action, after which begins the song itself. At some point the music may stop longest losing streak of music without words or even a segment of the video without the music, that is, on the screen for a while only dialogs or actions. Thai song then resumed and the story ends.
Speaking of stories: they are usually simple: most of the songs as well as everywhere about love, often unrequited. In Thailand, there is still a class character in society, so many videos you can see just a love story of a poor girl (often from the village) and the rich young man (of course, from the big city). Can not do without a classic love triangle. Due to the fact that Thai men are «famous» as the most wrong in the world, a lot of clips of just about such a brutal female infidelity and revenge.
Separate category of Thai clips are those that are not represented some history. As a rule, it is fun and fast Thai songs, with many actors on stage (usually a crowd of beautiful girls in bright colorful costumes, sometimes quite sexy-looking). Incidentally, Thailand would not Thailand if in music videos sometimes not present «lediboi» and «that fights» 🙂 Be prepared for the fact that the Thai music videos often a lot of tears and crying not only girls but also boys .. . Finally, it is not nice feature is the presence of Thai clips in many of these advertisements, especially music channel SabaideeTV at the beginning, which sometimes takes up to 20 seconds.
An article about the popular Thai music is not accidental placed in the «Culture of Thailand». Firstly, the musical arts itself refers to culture. And, secondly, many Thai clips reveal a long national tradition, preserved in Thai society so far. Therefore, with lots of Thai clips allow foreigners to better understand some of the features of Thai life.
By the way, just warning that foreigners can not always properly understand the meaning of a song and stories presented in the video. This is facilitated as ignorance of the language, and especially Thai culture, many aspects of which are natural to the Thais, but it is not clear for farang. For a better understanding of the meaning of what is happening on the screen, some reported below under Thai clips I posted a brief description. Those moments that I do not quite understand myself, helped me to understand the «bearer» Thai 🙂
P.S. If you like any of the presented songs and you would like to receive it in the format MP3 (no dialogue and advertising) to listen to on the phone, write about it in the comments at the end of this article. If I have this song (and there are many), share a direct link to Yandex drives, where you can download your favorite song. By the way, for some reason I (and not only) Thai songs do not always like the first time. But after listening to some of their popular songs comes some inner understanding of them. For example in my playlists now probably at least 90% of Thai music. And some familiar as «hooked» on Thai music and listen to it regularly.
