Jive Monkey Playlist: 1/11/13

Today, I’m all about songs with interesting beats and two recent releases perked my ears in that category.  Girls’ Generation’s “I GOT A BOY” and Eun Ji Won’s “아무나 (feat. 길미) (Anybody (feat. Gilme))”.

Eun Ji Won and Gilme’s releases over the last year, whether it was a part of Clover or their solo endeavors, have consistently been catchy.  For the most part, they are easy songs to listen to.  Mostly with lyrics that have a lot of cheesy humor.  Eun Ji Won does have one exception, the single he featured on for R.ef.  But my love for both of them makes me look past their faults on that single.

In “아무나 (Anybody)”, the lyrics are pretty simple but the fact that Gilme immediately demands that you dance, you just can’t help get into the song.  Maybe by tapping your feet or bobbing your head, followed by some shoulder action.  Am I the only one who reacts this way to the song?

Girls’ Generation recently released a new album after releasing a preview of it through the track, “Dancing Queen” which is a remake of Duffy’s “Mercy”.  I want to like “Dancing Queen” but it just rubs me the wrong way.  If they did something more unique rather than merely replacing the words, then I would have loved it.  Even the English line, “Hit the beat and take it to the fast line,” is phrased awkwardly.  The original line is: “Hit the beat and take it to the bass now” and maybe they couldn’t really copy the whole line so they changed it to apply to the dancing theme.  But the more I listen to it, I just don’t like it.

It also took me awhile to get into “I GOT A BOY” too.  I don’t know… the song has multiple personality disorder which makes it intriguing but schizophrenic sounding.  It constantly changes its genre throughout.  The first couple of times I heard this song, I ended up focusing on different sections of the song that every time I heard it I didn’t realize it was the same song.  Also the lyric, “I got a boy 멋진 (mut-jin),” caught my ear because I misheard it as, “I got a boy machine”.  It immediately made me go, ‘what the hell does that mean,’ before I realized my mistake.  Oops.

But what initially got me intrigued with the album before it even came out was the concept photos of the members.  Most particularly Seo Hyun.  Not only were they clad in colorful, hyped-up outfits, Seo Hyun changed her sweet style for something significantly more sexy.  No more does she look like the pure, innocent girl who likes to gush over UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon.  Ha, it was a good way to market the album by making me feel that the group was preparing to debut something different.

Jumping from one extreme to another, the backing track goes from hip hop to rock to electronic pop.  The common thread running throughout are their voices because I don’t think they can all quite sell the hip hop, rock or electronica genre.  Their voices still sound very girlish but they do add a hilarious layer of cattiness.  The is about how one of the girls changes her style for a guy she likes.  The other girls gossip and demand to know the reason for her sudden change.  It’s kinda funny in a superbly childish way but it grows on you the more you listen to it.

소녀시대 – I GOT A BOY

I GOT A BOY

Ayo! GG!
Yeah Yeah 시작해 볼까?

어-머! 얘 좀 봐라 얘,
무슨 일이 있었길래 머릴 잘랐대? 응?

너 미쳤어, 미쳤어
오 오오 예 오. 오오 예 오

Ayo! GG!
Yeah Yeah, should we begin?

O-mo! Yeah, just look, yeah,
What caused you to cut your hair? Huh?
O-mo! Again yeah, just look!
From head down to toes, changed her style
Why’d she do it? I’m dying to know
Why’d she do it? Just tell me

Ha Ha! Let me introduce myself!
Here comes trouble! Follow me!
Oh oh oh yeah oh.
Oh oh yeah oh
You show off, really!

What’s with her? Funny.
Stuck-up much, don’t you think?
Says I’m plain, yeah
Uh~ she must really be into that guy!
Ridiculous! Ridiculous!
She got really pretty and sexy
It’s because of that guy, right?
I was about to ask, you know?
What kind of makeup did change?

Seriously I saw him first
Hurt lips with deep, wild eyes
Just talking about it makes me dizzy, you know?
You show off, really! Show off, really!

Oh oh oh yeah oh. Oh oh yeah, oh
You show off, really!
Oh oh oh yeah oh. Oh oh yeah, oh
You show off, really!

Ayo! Stop!
Let me put it down another way.

I got a boy, handsome! I got a boy, kind!
I got a boy handsome boy,
he stole my heart
I got a boy, handsome! I got a boy, kind!
I got a boy awesome boy,
totally fallen for him

Ah, my prince!
When will he come to save this one?
Like a bright dream
Embracing me, you’ll fly away won’t you?

I, oh my! I’m stunned!
Curious what face that person is projecting
Totally like it
Will it be okay if you had to pretend to lose?
Uh! Can’t do that!
Right? Right?
Let’s stand by what we should stand by. Right! Right!
Until we get to have their heart
Don’t you ever forget that!

Oh oh oh yeah oh. Oh oh yeah
Oh even if we stay up all night, it’s not enough
Oh oh oh yeah oh. Oh oh yeah
Oh our greatest concern

Listen to me, you know that kid?
Though he’s young, he’s the whole package
At times like you oppa, he’s reliable
When he shows aegyo, he’s adorable

Oh oh oh yeah oh. Oh oh yeah oh,
you’re crazy, crazy
Oh oh oh yeah oh. Oh oh yeah oh,
you’re crazy, crazy

I’m so angry
My guy doesn’t see me as a woman

When you’re being vague, what can I do?
Should I make you jealous?
I’m upset! What should I do?
That makes no sense! No sense!

Don’t stop! Let’s bring it back to 140

I got a boy, handsome! I got a boy, kind!
I got a boy handsome boy,
he stole my heart
I got a boy, handsome! I got a boy, kind!
I got a boy awesome boy,
totally fallen for him

Always on my side
Lends his ear, you- you-
I’ll go on being happy like this

I got a boy, handsome! I got a boy, kind!
I got a boy handsome boy,
he stole my heart
I got a boy, handsome! I got a boy, kind!
I got a boy awesome boy,
totally fallen for him

I got a boy, handsome! I got a boy, kind!
I got a boy handsome boy,
he stole my heart
I got a boy, handsome! I got a boy, kind!
I got a boy awesome boy,
totally fallen for him

I got a boy handsome!

While this song is typical of their style and nothing all that special, I really, really like “Baby, Maybe”.  It’s just sweet and highlights their pretty voices well.  Hey, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it?    Right?  Actually British singer-songwriter Pixie Lott, contributed to writing the music for the song which probably explains why I love it.  Soo Young, Yuri and Seo Hyun collaborated together for the lyrics.

Girls’ Generation – Baby Maybe

소녀시대 – Baby Maybe

Baby Maybe

Baby baby baby 사랑을 믿지 않았죠
담을 둘러쌌던 지난 날들
Baby baby baby 혼자도 괜찮을 거란
바보 같던 맘이 그댈 만나

어색해진 내 모습 사람들이 말하죠
조마조마 두근두근 나도 어쩔 줄 모르죠
그때 주위의 친구들이
요즘 날 보며 하는 말이
“대체 누구야?
널 바꿔 논 Amazing guy”

그대와 love 푹 빠져버린 나
어쩌면 좋아 난
어떻게 넌
이제야 나타나 어디 있다 온 거야

Put your hands up if you feel like this
사랑에 빠졌다면 이 기분 진짜라면
Put your hands up if you feel like this
사랑을 찾았다면 진심이라면

Baby baby baby 함께 있던 그 자리
네 향기 매 순간 떠올라
Maybe maybe maybe
그대 향술 뿌려 내 옷에
언제든지 함께하길

로맨틱한 영화들 설레이는 장면들
너만 볼게 뻔한 대사
유치하다며 웃었죠
언젠가부터 변한
내가 그대 만나면 하는 말
“너만 볼래 너뿐이야
My boo 나의 자기야”

그대와 love 푹 빠져버린
나 어쩌면 좋아 난
어떻게 넌 이제야 나타나 어디 있다 온 거야

처음엔 나 망설였었죠
고집부리던 내 모습이 이젠
그대 예쁜 두 눈에 비춰진
새로운 내가 보이는걸

그대 나와 같다면 and you feel like this hey
Put your hands up if you feel like this,
put your hands up if you feel like this

Like this, Like this, Like this, Like this

Baby Maybe

Baby baby baby, you didn’t believe in love
Always suppressed it in the past
Baby baby baby, thought you’d be okay alone
Stupid heart met you

People talk about my awkwardness
Nervously, flutteringly, I don’t know what to do
My close friends
see me and the thing they say lately
“Who the hell is it?
The one who changed you, Amazing guy”

With you love, I fell for you,
what am I to do?
What about you?
Showing up now, where have you been?

Put your hands up if you feel like this
If you’ve fallen in love, if this feeling is real
Put your hands up if you feel like this
If you found love, if it’s real

Baby baby baby, together at that spot
At any moment, reminded of your scent
Maybe maybe maybe
Want to spray your scent on my clothes
So that it always stays with me

Romantic movies, exciting scenes
I’ll just look at you, obvious lines,
if it’s cheesy just laugh
Since when have I changed
The thing I say when I see you
“Just want to look at you, just you
My boo, my honey”

With you love, I fell for you,
what am I to do?
Showing up now, where have you been?

In the beginning, I hesitated
The stubbornness I showed, now
Reflected in your pretty eyes
Saw my new self

If you’re like me and you feel like this hey
Put your hands up if you feel like this,
put your hands up if you feel like this

Like this, Like this, Like this, Like this

If you’ve fallen in love, if this feeling is real
Put your hands up if you feel like this
If you found love, if it’s real
