Jive Monkey Playlist: 5/25/12

Heading into the long weekend here in the States, I’m itching to party with a drink in one hand and a sailor on my arm.  Hellooo Fleet Week!  How about you?  So in the spirit (or spirits, your choice) of Memorial Day weekend and what would mean the beginning of warmer months, I chose 2 upbeat tracks for the playlist this week.

First up, it’s Jay Park (aka Park Jae Bum).  He released a new album last week and it’s a mixtape of songs that he mostly wrote.  It’s an English album and even his buddy, Cha Cha Malone, helped him out on a number of tracks.

I love him for his talent; good dancing ability, decent singing and mischievous smile.  Yes, that last thing takes a great deal of talent.  😉

But I find him even more irresistible and adorable for making the album available online for freeee.  Download it over at Soundcloud.

It’s a pretty good Hip Hop album and I even love his cheeky take on William Hung of American Idol fame with a track aptly titled, “William Hung”.  “Do What We Do” is a bit raunchier as Jay Park does his best R. Kelly.  R. Kelly’s not my cup of tea AT ALL but for R&B standards, it’s pretty good.  It’s hard not to blush.  Hee…

My favorite song is the title track called “BODY2BODY”.  It’s a fun club number and catchy enough to bring the entire club floor up to its feet.

Now for a total change of pace, I’m going with some Bubble Gum Pop.

I’ve been checking out A Pink’s latest album “Une Annee” and trying to be objective about it.  They’ve got this very young sound that’s more appropriate for tweens but “BUBIBU” perked my ears.

Not that it doesn’t sound super, sugary sweet in that typical A Pink fashion and in some ways the song does resemble SNSD’s “Gee”, especially the beginning narration, but it makes good use of synths and has a strong beat.  They say that the song uses a 14-piece orchestra which I think is mostly strings??  It’s hard to tell as it’s buried beneath the various synthesizers.  It’s a childish song about being all mushy with your S.O. but it’s a cute that’s perfect for the beginning of summer.

A Pink – BUBIBU

How do I look today?
These days, I think how pretty look

Today I’m a fine girl

Thump thump thump, I’m nervous
When I think of you, I’m nervous
What am I to do on a day like this, oh oh

I’m like an idiot
I’m embarrassed of this side of myself
I want gather my courage to tell you

Slowly on both your cheeks, BuBiBu
Tightly holding your hand, BuBiBu
Whenever I look at you, I’m ticklish
Whenever I look upon you, Lool loo Lal la

When I hear your name, I just like it
When I hear your voice, I just like it
I like you a lot

Even if I appear a bit cold
In my eyes I see a warm man

My only one, it’s my boyfriend

Over and over and over again
I keep thinking of you, over again
What am I to do on a day like this? oh oh

I want to take a stroll
I also want to have a picnic
There’s so much to do

Tightly holding your hand, BuBiBu
