Tiana Xiao’s 3rd single, entitled 悲しい嘘, was released on 05.20.09.

悲しい嘘 is a nice mellow track. The song begins with a nice and cool instrumental, highlighted by the sounds of the guitar. Tiana opens up with “hey boy, there is just something I wnat you to know, so just listen,” which invites the listener on the journey of the story. Her vocals are nice and smooth, having a sort of natural quality which is touching. She then embarks on the chorus, singing “I can’t be with you” and you can feel the emotion in her voice. She really hits those higher notes nicely too. It’s a very enjoyable song that one can sit down to and feel relaxed.

The first B-side is Promise. It’s such a relaxing and sweet song because Tiana’s vocals are calming and have a lullaby effect to them. The listener can really get into a dreamy state while listening to this song so she gets points for that. The style of the song is very reminiscent of Jyongri and Tiana adapts to it wonderfully.

The same can be said for the second B-side, You’re My Heart. There is a kind of magical feeling that the song has, which is nice to listen to. However, it would have been even more enjoyable if the song before didn’t sound so similar. Nonetheless, it’s a nice song.

In order to promote the single, a PV for 悲しい嘘 was made. Honestly, the animated eggs felt so random and out of place. Without them, it would have been a pretty normal video fitting with the theme of the song. Although they’re not that big of a deal, they are just a little annoying.

Single Ranking: B +

It’s nice that Tiana Xiao made her return to music with such a pleasant single. Her vocals were lovely throughout all three songs and the instrumentation actually makes it a very connected package. Hopefully we’ll be seeing more of her in the future.
