Jive Monkey Playlist: 8/9/13

Lately, I’ve been finding a lot of songs to be randomly funny for absolutely no reason.  And for that reason alone, I got addicted to the songs in today’s post.

M.I.B, which is an abbreviation of Most Incredible Busters, is a hip hop group that defies your expectations.  At first glance, they have hardcore hip hop sound but when you listen to the lyrics it’s hard for me not to go, “Huh?”  They debuted in 2011 and even their debut song, “G.D.M” and the song totally makes me crack up.  “G.D.M” stands for “Girls, Dreams, Money” which they repeat constantly in the track.  However, I thought they were saying, “Girls, Drinks, Money”.  Lol.  I prefer my version better but damn those Korean accents.

“들이대 (Men In Black) (Crunk/Dash (Men In Black))” is  track off their latest album and note that I gave the song two different titles.  I’ve seen it translated as Dash but it really didn’t seem accurate to me.  (Mini Korean Lesson Time) 들이대 (deul-ee-dae) means to thrust forward, aim, confront.  However, the way they’re using it is clearly as a slang word indicating some kind of a dance.  The song is about leaving your worries behind, partying hard and going crazy.  It’s hard not to get into the song but the music video is pretty funny.  Love how SIMS tries to make the bowtie look cool and not nerdy.  It’s still nerdy.

M.I.B – 들이대 (Men In Black)

들이대 (Men In Black)

okay 흔들어대 머리 아픈 걱정은 붙들어매
그래 멋대로해 왜 뭐 때문에?
기억을 심어줄게 더 새롭게

저리 치워 무슨 말이 필요하겠어
모두 어리버리하기만 해 들어봐 계속
다시 변해가는데 물어봐도 돼?
목소리 높이 높게

나와 모두 자리에서 엉덩이 떼기
오늘밤 지워줄게 잠깐 너의 Memory

(turn up the music bounce
다시 두 손을 머리 위로 bounce)

나와 놀자고 한 번 쯤 들어본 M.I.B

와 모두 같이 들이 들이 대
모두 들이 들이대
모두 들이 들이 대 모두 같이 들이 들이대
(turn up the music bounce
다시 두 손을 머리 위로 bounce)
모두 들이 들이대 모두 들이 들이대

Zic to the o 매번 또
모두를 기립하게 하는 파바로티 Flow
오늘은 내가 시키는대로만 움직여
이곳이 오늘밤과 나의 거래처

Black suit Black shoes Black tie
Black watch Black sunglasses Black car
Turn up the music bounce

we on the floor ready to go
맘에 안 들어 내숭떠는 니 태도
Baby shawty come tell me
what u wanna what u wanna what u want
shawty come tell me what u wanna oh oh oh

나와 모두 자리에서 엉덩이 떼기
오늘밤 지워줄게 잠깐 너의 Memory
(turn up the music bounce
다시 두 손을 머리 위로 bounce)

나와 놀자고 한 번 쯤 들어본 M.I.B

계산기 두드리면서 머리 굴려도 돼
미친 척하고 놀아도 오늘은 용서가 돼

오늘은 용서가 돼 오늘은 용서가 돼

전부 신경쓰지 마라
내 느낌이 가는 대로 하면 돼
따라 두 손을 위로 맨인블랙

들이들이대 들이들이대 들이들이대 들이들이대
들이들이대 들이들이대 들이들이대 들이들이대

나와 모두 자리에서 엉덩이 떼기
오늘밤 지워줄게 잠깐 너의 Memory

(turn up the music bounce
다시 두 손을 머리 위로 bounce)

나와 놀자고 한 번 쯤 들어본 M.I.B

와 모두 같이 들이 들이대
모두 들이 들이대
모두 들이 들이대 모두 같이 들이 들이대
(turn up the music bounce
다시 두 손을 머리 위로 bounce)
모두 들이 들이대 모두 들이 들이대

Crunk/Dash (Men In Black)

Okay, shake it, rein in the worries making your head hurt
Yeah, do what you want, why, for what?
I’ll plant new memories for you

Put that away, what else is there to say?
Everyone is inept, so keep listening
It’s changing again so can I ask you?
With a voice higher, higher

Get up off your butts with me
Tonight, I’ll briefly erase your Memory

(turn up the music bounce
raise your hands in the air again, bounce)

Party with me, heard somewhere once M.I.B

Come, all together, crunk, crunk
Everyone, crunk, crunk
Everyone, crunk, crunk, all together, crunk, crunk
(turn up the music bounce
raise your hands in the air again, bounce)
Everyone, crunk, crunk, all together, crunk, crunk

Zic to the o, Again always
Everyone gives a standing ovation for my Pavarotti Flow
Today, move the way I tell you to
This place, together with tonight, is my business account

Black suit Black shoes Black tie
Black watch Black sunglasses Black car
Turn up the music bounce

we on the floor ready to go
Don’t like it, your innocent attitude
Baby shawty come tell me
what u wanna what u wanna what u want
shawty come tell me what u wanna oh oh oh

Get up off your butts with me
Tonight, I’ll briefly erase your Memory
(turn up the music bounce
raise your hands in the air again, bounce)

Party with me, heard somewhere once M.I.B

You can pound the calculator and put your brain to work
You can act crazy and party, today all is forgiven

Today all is forgiven, today all is forgiven

Don’t worry about everything,
Just go with how you feel
Follow me, two hands in the air, Men in Black

Crunk crunk, crunk crunk, crunk crunk, crunk crunk
Crunk crunk, crunk crunk, crunk crunk, crunk crunk

Get up off your butts with me
Tonight, I’ll briefly erase your Memory

(turn up the music bounce
raise your hands in the air again, bounce)

Party with me, heard somewhere once M.I.B

Come, all together, crunk, crunk
Everyone, crunk, crunk
Everyone, crunk, crunk, all together, crunk, crunk
(turn up the music bounce
raise your hands in the air again, bounce)
Everyone, crunk, crunk, everyone, crunk, crunk

The melody to San E’s “아는사람 얘기 (Story of Someone I Know)” is such an uncomplicated melody that it almost sounds so familiar in a comforting way. I honestly kept thinking that this was a Geek’s song and got surprised every time I saw San E’s name as the artist on my Ipod.  The melody may have caused me to hear the song over and over again but it was the song’s story that I found amusing.  The song is about a guy who wants to talk to his friend about a recent breakup but doesn’t want to admit that the guy in the story is him.  Haha, I guess it’s hard for guys to talk about their feelings.

산이(San E) – 아는사람 얘기

아는사람 얘기

내가 아는 사람 얘기해줄게
며칠 전 사랑하는 그녀와 헤어진
주위 그냥 아는 사람
힘들고 많이 슬퍼하던데
너는 어떻게 생각해
아 내 얘기는 절대 아니야
그냥 그냥 아는 사람 얘기

그는 그녀를 너무 사랑했대
1년을 넘게 만났어도 반하겠대
여자들 앞에서 싱글이라 하던 그가
친구들에게도 자랑했대

이뻐보였나봐 그의 엄마가
어릴 적 날마다 해준 말마따다
머리부터 발끝까지 넌 버릴 구석이 없다고
그 정도로 좋았었나봐

매일밤 택시 타고 그녈 데려다주고
그는 막차 타고 집에 돌아와 수고
스럽지만 1분 더 있고 싶어서
손잡고 있음 걱정 녹아내려서

그렇게 둘은 행복했대
여기까진 스토리 좋잖아
행복 백 배
근데 그 사람이 누구냐고
어.. 그냥 아는 사람

내가 아는 사람 얘기해줄게
며칠 전 사랑하는 그녀와 헤어진
주위 그냥 아는 사람
힘들고 많이 슬퍼하던데
너는 어떻게 생각해
아 내 얘기는 절대 아니야
그냥 그냥 아는 사람 얘기

뭔가 이상했대 어느 순간부터
가까웠던 둘 사이에 어색함이 줄곧
왜 그런지 대체 모르겠더라고
후에 알고보니 되게 멀리 떠난다고

그녀 울면서 이제 그만하재
하얀 손끝에 가재처럼 매달려봤지만
더욱 아파하는 모습에 집게를 놨네
나는 말해줬어 인정해
그년 널 사랑하지 않아

아냐 몇번이고 부정했어 애써
배고픈 거지처럼 구걸했지만
그녀가 준 건 사랑 아닌 동정
나 너무 슬퍼

나 방금 나라고 했니
너무 감정이입 했나봐 이해 되지?
근데 어떻게 이렇게 자세히도 아냐고
어.. 친하거든

내가 아는 사람 얘기해줄게
며칠 전 사랑하는 그녀와 헤어진
주위 그냥 아는 사람
힘들고 많이 슬퍼하던데
너는 어떻게 생각해
아 내 얘기는 진짜 아니야
그냥 그냥 아는 사람 얘기

누군 이런 일도 있다 해서
(그냥 그냥 아는 사람 얘기)
참 별일이야 유치하지 않냐?
(그냥 그냥 아는 사람얘기)

넌 근데 어떻게 생각해
그 남자가 어떻게 해야될 거 같애
잡아야할까 포기해야할까
나 너무 진지한가

니가 아는 사람 얘기해줄게
며칠 전 사랑하는 그녀와 헤어진
그래 지금 나란 사람
힘들고 많이 슬퍼 그러는데
이걸 어떻게 해야 해
아니다 아냐
그냥 그냥

Story of Someone I Know

Let me tell you a story of someone I know
Several days ago, he broke up with her
Just a person I know around me
It was hard and they were sad
What do you think?
Ah, it’s not my story
Just, just, a story of someone I know

Said that they loved that girl very much
Met for over a year and fell in love
That guy who said they were single in front of the ladies
Even bragged about her to his friends

Must have been pretty to his mom
Just like how his mom told him when he was young
From head to toe, there’s nothing that’s wasted
She liked her that much

Every night took a taxi to take her home
Then he would take the last train home
Took some effort but wanted to stay 1 minute longer
Worries melt when holding hands

That’s how they were both happy
Up to this point, the story was good
Happiness a hundred times over
But who is that person?
Uh… Just someone I know

Let me tell you a story of someone I know
Several days ago, he broke up with her
Just a person I know around me
It was hard and they were sad
What do you think?
Ah, it’s not my story
Just, just, a story of someone I know

At some point, something started feeling strange
The two, who used to be close, now constantly awkward
Didn’t know how that happened
Afterwards, he found out that she was going far away

As she cried, she said, ‘Let’s breakup.’
Like a crayfish, clung to her white fingertips
But seeing her more in pain, he let his claws go
I told him, admit it,
she didn’t love you

He denied it arduously
Begged like a hungry beggar
But what she gave wasn’t love, it was pity
I’m so sad

Did I just say it was me?
Must have been too empathetic, you get it, right?
But how do I know all these details?
Uh… we’re close

Let me tell you a story of someone I know
Several days ago, he broke up with her
Just a person I know around me
It was hard and they were sad
What do you think?
Ah, it’s not my story
Just, just, a story of someone I know

These kinds of things happen to people
(Just, just, a story about someone I know)
It’s so funny, don’t you think it’s childish?
(Just, just, a story about someone I know)

But what do you think about it?
What do you think that guy should do?
Should he hold on or give up?
Am I being too serious?

Let me tell you a story of someone you know
Several days ago, he broke up with her
Yeah, that person is me
It was hard and they were sad
What am I supposed to do?
No, forget it
Just, just

Daybreak came out with a new single.  “TOUCH ME is about… well… there’s touching and kissing and you get the picture.  If you don’t, well then I can’t help you.

Considering the subject, you’d think the song would be an R&B.  The new wave pop was totally unexpected but even the melody cracks me up.  The backing track is reminiscent of ABBA and suddenly I’m thinking platform shoes, wide legs, neon frilly outfits.  I can even imagine a dance to go along with this on a colorfully lighted dance floor.  It’s too bad that Daybreak has only come out with a teaser and now a full music video because I could so picture Lee Won Suk swaying back and forth wearing the John Travolta Saturday Night Fever suit.

Daybreak – TOUCH ME

TOUCH ME

날 만져줘요 오늘은 흐트러지고 싶어
오 난 외로워요 모른 척 새침하지 말아요
날 아껴두지 말아요 그대
오늘 밤 내 사랑은 충분하니까
Touch me baby Touch me baby now
(You gonna touch me baby)
Touch me baby
Touch me through the night
날 훔치고 싶다면 나를 원한다면
그대여 이젠 Touch me Kiss me tonight
날 만져줘요 온 몸이 닳아 없어지고 싶어
오 이미 난 그대의 것
맘대로 다뤄줘도 좋아요
나를 미뤄두지 말아요 그대
언제나 내 사랑은 터질 듯 충분해
Touch me baby Touch me baby now
(You gonna touch me baby)
Touch me baby
Touch me through the night
날 훔치고 싶다면 나를 원한다면
그대여 이젠 Touch me Kiss me tonight

오직 당신만을 내가 원하고 바라는 걸
Touch me baby tonight

Touch me baby Touch me baby now
(You gonna touch me baby)
Touch me baby
Touch me through the night
날 훔치고 싶다면 나를 원한다면
그대여 이젠 Touch me Kiss me tonight

TOUCH ME

Touch me, I want to look disheveled
Oh I’m lonely, don’t pretend you don’t know
Don’t save me for later, you
Tonight, I’ve got enough love
Touch me baby Touch me baby now
(You gonna touch me baby)
Touch me baby
Touch me through the night
If you want to steal me away, if you want me
Now baby, Touch me Kiss Me tonight
Touch me, want my whole body to wear down
Oh I’m already yours,
It’s okay to treat me however you like
Don’t you put me off until later
My love is always ready to burst
Touch me baby Touch me baby now
(You gonna touch me baby)
Touch me baby
Touch me through the night
If you want to steal me away, if you want me
Now baby, Touch me Kiss me tonight

Only hoping that you want me
Touch me baby tonight

Touch me baby Touch me baby now
(You gonna touch me baby)
Touch me baby
Touch me through the night
If you want to steal me away, if you want me
Now baby, Touch me Kiss me tonight
