Jive Monkey Playlist: 6/21/13

Summer is officially here.  (*checks calendar)  Yep, yeah, it’s definitely here.  So this week’s post is about some hot female artists that have been heating up the charts recently.  Although judging by these tracks, it just seems like people want to get busy gettin’ it on.

Sistar recently released a new album last week.  Frankly, it’s alright.  It’s not like K-Pop has a habit of sounding repetitive or anything like that.  Nor have I expressed extreme dislike for it.  Unfortunately, I was a bit unenthused with the album as a whole and not totally loving their title song, “Give It to Me”.  Having said that, I still like the song in which the girls collaborated with Geeks called “넌 너무 야해 (The Way You Make Me Melt) (You’re Very Risqué (The Way You Make Me Melt))”.

The word 야해 (yah hae) can have several meanings like risqué or immodest.  It can also mean vulgar but I feel like the word is said with as much denigration as the way “vulgar” is used in the English language.  Especially in this song, it’s kind of said with a wink in the eye as falling in love means exposing themselves to each other.

I did feel annoyed with the verse in which the guy comments on covering up his girl with clothing.  It’s my feminist side all coming out and at first it sounded very possessive to me.  However, I do understand that the lyrics are about his own insecurity of losing her and his wish, not command, to do that.  Big difference there.  The song is kinda sweet so I forgive it, this time.

Sistar – 넌 너무 야해 (The Way You Make Me Melt (feat. 긱스) (You’re Very Risqué (The Way You Make Me Melt) (feat. Geeks))

씨스타 – 넌 너무 야해 (The Way You Make Me Melt) (feat. 긱스)

넌 너무 야해 (The Way You Make
Me Melt) (feat. 긱스)

수많은 촛불에 둘러쌓인 밤
내 약지를 감싸며 그가 하는 말
사랑해 결혼해주겠니
얼굴이 빨개지고 난

넌 밤에 뜬 태양
한마디로 야해
걸을 때마다 흩날리는 매력
너만의 것이 아니라
나의 것도 되길
그래서 오늘 내가 나이값 좀 했지
물론 촛불은 필수
cuz you already burn me up
grandline rappin u gon have to turn it up
오늘의 감독은 나
후의 감동은 너의 것
감탄만 하지 말고
너를 보여줘 girl

넌 너무 야해 내 볼이 빨개
어쩜 눈 코 입도
과감하게 섹시해
못 말리게 생긴 넌 매력쟁이야
난 녹아버릴 것 같아 babe
넌 너무 야해 정말로 섹시해
너에게 푹 빠져버린 난 어떡해
못 말리게 생긴 넌 매력쟁이야
난 녹아버릴 것 같아 너만 보면

종이로 접은 장미 꽃을 들고
내 두손에 건네며 속삭이던 말
사랑해 난 너뿐이야
이 꽃이 시들 때까지

가끔 넌 너무 야해
그런 널 볼 때면 난 불안해
옷으로 너를 가려도
잘 안 가려져서
너를 안아야 돼 너도 알겠지?
내가 이미 너의 매력 안에 퐁당 빠진 뒤
누가 뭐래도
네가 무엇을 입던
내겐 너무 야해
너의 옷 차림이

넌 너무 야해 내 볼이 빨개
어쩜 눈 코 입도
과감하게 섹시해
못 말리게 생긴 넌 매력쟁이야
난 녹아버릴 것 같아 babe
넌 너무 야해 정말로 섹시해
너에게 푹 빠져버린 난 어떡해
못 말리게 생긴 넌 매력쟁이야
난 녹아버릴 것 같아 너만 보면

네 잠꼬대마저 난 좋은 걸
그대 숨소리마저 난 좋은 걸
우린 어쩌면 (우린 어쩌면)
오오오오
하늘이 맺어준 건가봐

넌 너무 야해 내 볼이 빨개
어쩜 눈 코 입도
과감하게 섹시해
못 말리게 생긴 넌 매력쟁이야
난 녹아버릴 것 같아 babe
넌 너무 야해 정말로 섹시해
너에게 푹 빠져버린 난 어떡해
못 말리게 생긴 넌 매력쟁이야
난 녹아버릴 것 같아 너만 보면

You’re Very Risqué (The Way You Make
Me Melt) (feat. Geeks)

Countless candles surrounding the night
You hold my ring finger and say
I love you, will you marry me?
My face reddens

Like the sun rising at night,
in one word you’re risqué
Every time we walk, your whirling charms
Not only belonging to you,
hope it also becomes mine
That’s why today I acted my age
Sure, candles are a must,
cuz you already burn me up
grandline rappin u gon have to turn it up
I’m today’s director,
being moved afterwards is yours
Don’t just show your admiration,
show yourself girl

You’re very risqué, my cheeks are red
How is it that your eyes, nose, lips are
extremely sexy?
Becoming such an irresistible charmer
It’s like I’m gonna melt babe
You’re very risqué, really sexy
What am I to do now that I’ve fallen for you?
Becoming such an irresistible charmer
It’s like I’m gonna melt whenever I see you

Holding an origami rose
Passing it into my hands and whispering
I love you, no one else but you for me
until this flower withers

Occasionally you’re very risqué,
looking at you makes me anxious
Covering you up with clothes just
doesn’t cover you up enough
I need to hug you, you know that right?
I’ve already fallen deep for your charms
No matter what anyone says,
no matter what you wear
You’re very risqué to me,
your clothing style

You’re very risqué, my cheeks are red
How is it that your eyes, nose, lips are
extremely sexy?
Becoming such an irresistible charmer
It’s like I’m gonna melt babe
You’re very risqué, really sexy
What am I to do now that I’ve fallen for you?
Becoming such an irresistible charmer
It’s like I’m gonna melt whenever I see you

Even talking in your sleep, I like it
Even your breathing, I like it
We’re perhaps (We’re perhaps)
Oh oh oh oh,
must be a match made in heaven

You’re very risqué, my cheeks are red
How is it that your eyes, nose, lips are
extremely sexy?
Becoming such an irresistible charmer
It’s like I’m gonna melt babe
You’re very risqué, really sexy
What am I to do now that I’ve fallen for you?
Becoming such an irresistible charmer
It’s like I’m gonna melt whenever I see you

Ivy is out with a new album as well.  I actually really loved her last album, “Interview”.  This one is okay as well and I like that she experiments with different pop subgenres but sometimes they don’t always work out.  The title song “I Dance” starts off interestingly enough with the tango rhythm but I do lose interest towards the middle.  Perhaps, it due to the awkward transition between the singing and the rap.

“Summer Holiday” is a fun, frivolous track but to be honest I didn’t really think too hard about that song.  It’s upbeat and feels like a summer vacation.  It’s one of those catchy tracks that you could totally bob your head along to and sing along to in the car.  Are your feet tapping yet?

Ivy – Summer Holiday

아이비(IVY) – Summer Holiday

Above the cool waves, the two of us

Sweet memories that make me happy

Reflecting on your heart,

Embrace me and promise me,

    • I was originally gonna feature that song to go with the whole summer theme but the song kinda bored me. I agree, it’s a lot like “Loving U” as the lyrics are very literal. However I liked the hook for “Loving U” better than I do for “Summer Time”.

  1. I wish Sistar would tone down the sexiness. They’re all really hard-working, talented and beautiful: surely that should be enough?

    But then that’s my gripe with practically all these girl groups save The SeeYa…
