Jive Monkey Playlist: 9/20/13

If you’ve ever watched the hip hop episode of Running Man featuring Drunken Tiger (aka Tiger JK) and his wife, Yoon Mi Rae (aka Tasha), you’ve probably witnessed them bickering to the point where Yoo Jae Seok and Lee Kwang Soo felt a bit awkward and uncomfortable.  Knowing that the two bicker all the time (out of love!), it was an amusing look into their marriage for me.

Drunken Tiger’s latest album, “살자 (The Cure) (Let’s Live (The Cure))”, with Yoon Mi Rae and Bizzy showcases that uplifting and positive side.

I think when most people perceive hip hop artists, they think the lyrics tend to reflect people darker nature’s or a fun, partying with the ladies atmosphere. I’m not sure if it’s because Drunken Tiger and Yoon Mi Rae are getting older but this album is definitely an insight into their warm and fuzzy side.

I know Yoon Mi Rae struggled with her identity while growing up and perhaps she leaned to music to get through the hard times.  Music was probably the first love for all three artists.  This song reminisces about how that passion first came alive in them as it is compared to how excited a kid gets when they see the first snowfall of winter.  Music is like a time machine that always brings them back to that special place.  I’m sure I’m going to feel that way when I see Reply 1994 and hear the music of my childhood because it’ll remind me of my fangirl teenage days.

첫눈이 오면 설레였던 꼬마아이 (Time Travel)

Back In The Day When I Was Younger
Used To Have Dreams I’d Be A Star Wondered
How I Would Feel To Sing And Everybody Scream
How They Can’t Get Enough Of Me

Back In The Day When I Was Younger
Use To Have Dreams I’d Be A Star Wondered
How I Would Feel To Sing And Everybody Scream
How They Can’t Get Enough Of Me

돌아가자 그때 그 시절로
모든 게 신기했던 그 계절로
첫눈이 오면 설레였던 꼬마 아이
나비를 쫒아 달렸던 나의 마음이
변해버렸어 아마도 나이탓
시간은 흘러간다고 많은 이는 말했다
듣지 않았어 바삐 달렸다
그때가 그리워 음악을 타고 가

어릴 적에 When I Was Younger
손 모아 기도해
저녁 언덕
하늘의 꿈을 그려
On The Radio의 노래가 흐르는

어릴 적에 When I Was Younger
손 모아 기도해
저녁 언덕
하늘의 꿈을 그려
On The Radio의 노래가 흐르는

Hey Ho 음악을 타고 가
It’s Just Me And You
It’s Just Me And You Now

Hey Ho 음악을 타고 가
It’s Just Me And You
It’s Just Me And You Now

삶이란 롤러코스터 Up & Down의
굴곡이 심해 기쁨 다음에 절망이 오네
하지만 절망도 언젠간 기쁜 소식을 보내겠지
내 의지의 맷집은 그리 세지 않지만
난 견뎌낼 수 있어
기다린 만큼 건뎌낼 수 있어
건져낼 수 있어 행복의 월척
내 꿈에 걸려
모든 게 행복했던 그날을 찾아
모를 만큼 행복했던 난
그날을 향한
음악은 타임머신 나 Back To The

음악은 타임머신 여긴 예전에 거기
봄 여름 가을 겨울 그리고 그 거리
사랑과 함께했던 계절의 향기와
음식의 맛이 섞여
옛 향수에 젖지
아팠던 옛 기억도 이젠 웃음거리
미소질수 있어 이젠 웃음거리
눈물도 글썽거려 옛 추억이 아른거려
눈물도 글썽거려 옛 기억에 춤을 추죠

울랄랄라 음악은 타임머신
여긴 예전에 거기
울랄랄라 여기 저기 와요 돌아와요
울랄랄라 음악은 타임머신
여긴 예전에 거기
울랄랄라 와요 돌아와요

어릴 적에 When I Was Younger
손 모아 기도해
저녁 언덕
하늘의 꿈을 그려
On The Radio의 노래가 흐르는

Let’s go back to that time when
To that season when everything was amazing
A kid excited at the first snowfall
Chased butterfly, my feelings
have changed, perhaps it’s my age
Saying that time is passing, my many teeth talked
Though I can’t hear, I dashed hurriedly
I long for that, grooving with the music

When I Was Younger, When I Was Younger
Bring my hands together to pray,
At night, on the hill,
draw my dreams into the heavens
On The Radio, music is flowing

When I Was Younger, When I Was Younger
Bring my hands together to pray,
At night, on the hill,
draw my dreams into the heavens
On The Radio, music is flowing

Hey Ho, grooving with the music
It’s Just Me And You
It’s Just Me And You Now

Hey Ho, grooving with the music
It’s Just Me And You
It’s Just Me And You Now

Life is a rollercoaster, Up & Down
The turn is harsh, after happiness there’s despair
But despair can also experience happy news one day
My resilient drive may not be that strong
I can take it
As much as I’ve waited, I can take it
Salvage the happiness of a big catch
And wager my dreams on it
Searching for that day when everything was happy
Though I didn’t know much, my happy self
Heading for that day
Music is a time machine, Back To The

Music is a time machine, here is that past
Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter and that street
Love with the seasons’ scent and
the taste of music mixed together,
drenched in that old perfume
Hurtful, those old memories now brings laughs
I can smile about it, now brings laughs
Tears well up, old memories haunt me
Tears well up, old recollections dance around me

Oohlallalla, music is a time machine,
here is that past
Oohlallalla here, there, come, return to me
Oohlallalla, music is a time machine,
here is that past
Oohlallalla, come, return to me

When I Was Younger, When I Was Younger
Bring my hands together to pray,
At night, on the hill,
draw my dreams into the heavens
On The Radio, music is flowing

When I Was Younger, When I Was Younger
Bring my hands together to pray,
At night, on the hill,
draw my dreams into the heavens
On The Radio, music is flowing

Hey Ho, grooving with the music
It’s Just Me And You
It’s Just Me And You Now

Hey Ho, grooving with the music
It’s Just Me And You
It’s Just Me And You Now

“Beautiful Life” is a song that makes me think that they are all getting older. It’s a song filled with confessions and provides comfort because no matter what hardships you face, it’s a beautiful life worth living. Quite the opposite image you would expect from rappers.

Drunken Tiger with Yoon Mi Rae & Bizzy – Beautiful Life

드렁큰타이거 With 윤미래 & Bizzy – Beautiful Life

Beautiful Life

It’s A Beautiful Life A Beautiful Life
It’s A Beautiful Life A Beautiful Life
It’s A Beautiful Life A Beautiful Life
A Beautiful Life

전혀 생각지도 않았던
예상치도 못했던 그런 만남이
언젠가 나를 만나
잠 못 드는 새벽 밤에
나의 말벗이 돼주기를 바랬던
내 바램 이뤄지지 않아
내가 미워지기 시작해
오랫동안 내 자신이 싫어져
실없이 울고 있는 내 자신이 싫었어
바다도 메마른 파도도 안치는
잔잔한 바람 안 부는
맘속에 무인도
점점 좁혀드는 내 맘속에 주인도
누군지 모르는 나 지워지고 있을 때

난 혼자가 아냐 내 얘기도 들어주겠니
나도 눕고 싶고
울고 있고 네 맘을 조금 알아

It’s A Beautiful Life A Beautiful Life
It’s A Beautiful Life A Beautiful Life
A Beautiful Life

아무도 아무도 알아주지 않아
안아주지 않아
감싸주지 않아 날 받아주지 않아
저 별들을 보며 나쁜 세상과의
작별을 시도해봤어
기도해봤어 아픈 그대들을 보며
내 자신을 위로해봐
세상은 그리 아름답지만은 않아
삶의 선택의 나는 그 사실을 알아
선택의 기쁨을

선택의 지금을
기쁨을 택한 내 선택의 믿음
이제 이 순간부터 모든 게 아름다워
아픔을 이겨낸 내 자신이 고마워
It’s A Beautiful Life

난 혼자가 아냐 내 얘기도 들어주겠니
나도 눕고 싶고
울고 있고 네 맘을 조금 알아

It’s A Beautiful Life A Beautiful Life
It’s A Beautiful Life A Beautiful Life
A Beautiful Life

If You Should Ever Feel That You’re Fallin
I Will Never Let You Down
Love Is In The Air And It’s Calling Out Your Name

삶을 선택해 (삶을 선택해)
살아 숨쉴래 (It’s a Beautiful Life)
삶을 선택해 (삶을 선택해)
살아 숨쉴래

It’s A Beautiful Life A Beautiful Life
It’s A Beautiful Life A Beautiful Life
It’s A Beautiful Life A Beautiful Life
It’s A Beautiful Life A Beautiful Life
A Beautiful Life

Beautiful Life

It’s A Beautiful Life A Beautiful Life
It’s A Beautiful Life A Beautiful Life
It’s A Beautiful Life A Beautiful Life
A Beautiful Life

Never thought about it
Couldn’t have predicted it, that encounter
Met some time ago,
unable to sleep in the middle of the night
Hoping that you would be mine
Not turning out how I hoped
Starting to hate myself
For a long time, hating my confidence
Crying endlessly, hated myself
Barren seas, waves not crashing
Still winds not blowing,
a deserted island in my heart
Slowly narrowing, the bearer of my heart
Not knowing who you are, as I’m erased

I’m not alone, will you also listen to me?
I also want to lie down,
Know a bit where your crying heart is coming from

It’s A Beautiful Life A Beautiful Life
It’s A Beautiful Life A Beautiful Life
A Beautiful Life

No one, no one appreciates me
Doesn’t hug me
Doesn’t protect me, doesn’t accept me
When I see those stars, to the bad world,
tried to bid farewell
Tried to pray when I see the hurt you
Try to comfort my morale
The world isn’t only beautiful
Understand the truth about life’s choices
The happiness of choice

The current choice
Selecting happiness, the belief of my choice
Now from this moment on, everything’s beautiful
Conquered hurt, thankful for my assurance
It’s A Beautiful Life

I’m not alone, will you also listen to me?
I also want to lie down,
Know a bit where your crying heart is coming from

It’s A Beautiful Life A Beautiful Life
It’s A Beautiful Life A Beautiful Life
A Beautiful Life

If You Should Ever Feel That You’re Fallin
I Will Never Let You Down
Love Is In The Air And It’s Calling Out Your Name

Choose life (Choose life)
Want to breathe to live (It’s a Beautiful Life)
Choose life (Choose life)
Want to breathe to live

It’s A Beautiful Life A Beautiful Life
It’s A Beautiful Life A Beautiful Life
It’s A Beautiful Life A Beautiful Life
It’s A Beautiful Life A Beautiful Life
A Beautiful Life
