The song “Eyes, Nose, Lips” from Taeyang – Nisa’s goosebump moment
Nisa: “Hi! I am from Brunei. One of my goosebump moments is this song from Taeyang “Eyes, Nose, Lips”. It was my first Korean song and the first time I heard it, I got chills. Because of the melody, because of the singing and because of the voice. Taeyang’s voice is amazing, you guys. And throughout the song, you will feel the sadness. He is heartbroken, so everyone could relate to that. I could relate to that, at that time when I first heard it. And I did not even understand the language. It is music, and music is universal. You hear a song, you could feel it even if it is not in your language. And that was one of my goosebump moments. And if you have not heard this song, I suggest that you do so, and you will find yourself having it on repeat.”
