Jive Monkey Playlist: 9/16/11

I don’t know a lot about Verbal Jint.  He’s an indie-hip hop artist and I usually heard his tracks in passing, mostly featuring for other artists.  In terms of the hip hop, his sound is very different from Bang Yong Guk and Simon D.  There is a more dancier, groovier feeling to his tunes but it’s not like Mighty Mouth where it’s outright poppy.

He debuted on 2001 and he’s just recently released his 5th album.  “좋아보여 (You Look Happy)” has been making it’s rounds and been receiving praise for it’s complex lyrics and vocals from indie band, Black Skirt.

On the same album, I also really like, “우리존재 화이팅 (Our Perseverance, fighting!).”  It starts off whimsically, gets into the rap and then we groove right on into the chorus.

Verbal Jint – 우리 존재 화이팅 (Our Perseverance, fighting!)

우리존재… 화이팅!hey 나도 잘 알지 그 느낌 어떤건지
마음 먹었던 일마다
하나같이 잘 안되고
또 먼지처럼

부질없고 허무해
다 야구로 치면 9회 말
점수는 한참을 뒤지고
2 out인 상황, 이제 곧

돌이킬 수 없는 일이 일
어날 것만 같은 그런 기미
OTL 좌절의 냄새가 나
믿어왔던 것들이 너를 배반할

것만 같아, 후덜덜 떨겠지만
꿈꿔왔던 걸
절대 잊지마, 네 자신을 믿어
두 눈을 부릅뜨고
look in the mirror

우- 우- 우리존재 화이팅
(화이팅)
우- 우- 우울한 날 모두 다 있지
(다있지)
우- 우- 우리존재 화이팅
(화이팅)
우- 우- 우울한 날 모두 다 있지

you’ve got to stay strong
you’ve got to hold on
you’ve got to stay strong
you’ve got to hold on

you’ve got to stay strong
you’ve got to hold on
you’ve got to stay strong
you’ve got to hold on, baby

stay strong it’ll be okay
지금부터 내가 하는 말 기억해
혹시라도 지금 네 옆의 누군가
남들과 널 자꾸 비교해가며

조급히 삶을 살도록 강요했니?
모른긴 몰라도 걔넨 내가 볼 때
네 친군 아니야, 그건 좀 아니지
걔네가 좋아하는 말 reality

꿈과 현실은 다르대
그니까 꿈 따윈 잊고 살으래
그게 뭐야 대체? 감동도 없고
재미는 물론, they living it wrong.

솔직히 좀 삼류 냄새가 나
그렇게 숨만 쉬는 삶 왜 살아?
그들이 바로 네 삶의 적
신경쓰지 말고 모두 다 외쳐

우- 우- 우리존재 화이팅

Our Perseverance, fighting!Verbal Jint) Easy easy man~

Our perseverance… fighting!Hey I know exactly what that feeling is
Making up my mind for everything
Not working as one pleases,
again like dust

Futile, in vain,
in baseball terms bottom of the 9th
Behind on runs for awhile,
in a 2 out situation and shortly

What’s done will be done
Like a freckle that appears one day
OTL the smell of failure
Things you had faith in betrays you

Like that, I may tremble,
Dreamt dreams
Will never be forgotten, I believe in you
With two eyes wide open,
look in the mirror

Woo-woo our perseverance, fighting
(fighting)
Woo-woo forget all the gloomy days
(forget)
Woo-woo our perseverance, fighting
(fighting)
Woo-woo forget all the gloomy days
(baby)

You’ve got to stay strong
You’ve got to hold on
You’ve got to stay strong
You’ve got to hold on

You’ve got to stay strong
You’ve got to hold on
You’ve got to stay strong
You’ve got to hold on, baby

Stay strong it’ll be okay
From now on remember my words
Now if the person next to you
Always compared you with others

Hastily think you can bully me to live life?
Even if I don’t know, as I see it
They’re not a friend, that’s not right
The word they like: reality

They say dreams are different from reality
So just forget dreams and live
What is that? Lacking feeling
Indeed it’s fun, they living it wrong

Frankly, it reeks a bit of third-rateness
Why live when it’s just about breathing?
They are literally life’s archenemy
Don’t worry and everyone just shout

Woo-woo our perseverance, fighting
(fighting)
Woo-woo forget all the gloomy days
(forget)
Woo-woo our perseverance, fighting
(fighting)
Woo-woo forget all the gloomy days
(baby)

You’ve got to stay strong
You’ve got to hold on
You’ve got to stay strong
You’ve got to hold on

You’ve got to stay strong
You’ve got to hold on
You’ve got to stay strong
You’ve got to hold on, baby

Leggo!
Woah oh oh oh oh, (you got to)
Woah oh oh oh oh, (you gots to)
Woah oh oh oh oh, (all my people)
Woah oh oh oh oh,
(our perseverance fighting)
Stay strong (our perseverance)
hold on (fighting)
Stay strong (our perseverance)
hold on (everyone)
Stay strong (Boy, Girl)
hold on (No, So)
Stay strong (Spring, Summer)
hold on (Fall, Winter)

Woo-woo our perseverance, fighting
(fighting)
Woo-woo forget all the gloomy days
(forget)
Woo-woo our perseverance, fighting
(fighting)
Woo-woo forget all the gloomy days
(baby)

You’ve got to stay strong
You’ve got to hold on
You’ve got to stay strong
You’ve got to hold on

You’ve got to stay strong
You’ve got to hold on
You’ve got to stay strong
You’ve got to hold on, baby
