TOP 10 MOST VIEWED YOUTUBE VIDEO IN INDONESIA
I haven’t got the exact number how many really have watched this video here in Indonesia. Bu do we really need it? He’s been all over the place. Around the world. Did the Gangnam Style with Britney and Ellen (Simon Cowell just stood and watched. I knew he wanted to). Collab with MC Hammer at AMA. Even met The U.N Secretary General (I smell nepotism here). I’m not that surprised if he is voted as Time Person of The Year.
This is a surprise for me. But after i watched the video 27 times (maybe more) now i’m not that surprised anymore. They deserve it. They got all the formulas to be runner up this year. Good song. Easy listening. Soothing voice. Good music video. Suit with their touchy lyrics. Unrequited love. We all love those kind of song. C’mon admit it. Remember Adele?
Their name used to be Peterpan Band. One of the greatest bands in Indonesia for the past five years. This was the most anticipated song of the year in Indonesia. Ariel, the singer, singer-writer and frontman of the band just got released from prison for violating the pornography law. He was the sex idol Indonesia. I think he still is. Not long after that they released this video and boom. They have regained their position one more time.
Formed in 2007. This is their third album. But their first studio album that seriously done. Remastered by Jemi Sitanayah, a Master in Music (Soundengineering) from Berklee College of Music, USA. This song featuring Giselle, the finalist of Indonesian Idol. She was very well known here Indonesia. Appears almost everyday on local television. Oriental look girl. Boys these days love that kind of look. Look at SNSD and other girlband from Korea and Japan.
Man, i just heard this band. Where the fuck have i been? Mars? Was i in the wrong direction? After a few of their members served their country, The Secret State has arrived, with their unique electronic tinged sound, to serve their fans.

Trio Macan means Three Lions. No they’re not from England. It’s a group-vocal (or girlband?) Trio Macan are Lia Ladysta, Iva Novanda, dan Dian Aditya. They’re from East Java. Their name skied up high when they released a song called SMS. They’re dyed their hair into blondes. They’re also well known for their energetic stage act and show their sensuality to the audiences. Just like Lady Gaga.
Their debut album. Zivilia comes from two words “Zif” and “Philia”. The frontman Zulkifli or you can call him Zul formed the band as soon as he arrived in Indonesia after he got home after quite awhile stay in Japan. Ha! Now we know why the title is Aishiteru.
Do you still need an explanation?
Korean Pop (boyband and girlband) is a big hits in Indonesia. And i think it rules all over the world this year. Everytime they have a show in Indonesia you have to buy the tickets fast. Mostly their tickets were sold out within days.
This is the embryo of NOAH Band (look at number 3). They have to change their name because they had feud with their past members of Peterband. Because the Peterpan name came from Andhika, Peterpan’s keyboardist who left the band with Reza (bassist) and formed another band called The Titans.
