Jive Monkey Playlist: 10/18/13

Last year, Kahi left After School to pursue a solo career and she’s finally out with her mini album.  It’s clear that she’s trying to establish her own style apart from the Kahi we knew from the group.

I’ll be honest.  As a whole, I don’t really like the album.  I think the lyrics and melodies are repeated so often on most of the tracks are a bit boring.  It’s clear that she’s going for a sexy style like that of Beyonce.  All I can say is I feel a little meh about that.

However, it was smart to put “Boys and Girls” as the first track of the album because it really drew me to the album and it’s the only song I like.  The song is a cute electronic pop song akin to the likes of Humming Urban Stereo’s more upbeat numbers.  I like the push and pull of the lyrics with Kahi and Rapper Swings doing the he says, she says.  While the “Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus” is such an 80’s motto, the other aspects of the lyrics are pretty timeless. I will say the English is pretty bad on the album as a whole but the catchy melody makes me momentarily forget that fact.

Boys and Girls (feat. Swings)

Boys and Girl
Ladies and gentlemen,
Girls and Boys
Let’s get ready to rumble
Let’s go

Men are from Mars
Women are from Venus
We’re so far away
Men are from Mars
Women are from Venus
It’s so different

밀고 당기는 사랑 게임
싫다고 말해도 No No No No
본능적으로 두들기는 머릿속 계산기
Tick Tack Tick Tack

이것 저것 재고 따지는 게 당연하다고
순수한 사랑이 이 세상에 어디 있냐고

Boys Say 그저 본능에 충실했을 뿐 Oh Oh
Girls Say 이제 너 없이는 난 안돼

Men are from Mars
Women are from Venus
We’re so far away
칭얼댈수록 달아나는 Boys
멈추지 못해 Girls
Men are from Mars
Women are from Venus
It’s so different
점점 멀어지는 Boys
점점 깊어만 가는 Girls

This game that we playin’ right now,
it’s eternal you know that right

Always 시작의 열병은 Boys
Always 구속과 집착은 Girls
Bye Bye 쿨하게 이별은 Boys
So Sick 눈물의 아픔은 Girls

Girls like to go out and party,
you know that you know
Guys, we just wanna get it on at the crib
you know what I mean

Men are from Mars
Women are from Venus
We’re so far away
칭얼댈수록 달아나는 Boys
멈추지 못해 Girls
Men are from Mars
Women are from Venus
It’s so different
점점 멀어지는 Boys
점점 깊어만 가는 Girls

이미 이 game은 over
why don’t you know girl
난 좋으면 표현해
너는 show를 맨날 벌여
난 싫어 새침데기
너도 나처럼 좋으면
좋다 하면 되지
왜 이리 복잡해
난 이해 못해
너네가 하는 장난은 심해 못 됐어
(I know I know)
You don’t have a clue girl
No no you’ll never know

(fallin’ in love)
그래 넘어지기 다치기 싫지
여자들은 마음을 지킴
(fallin’ in love) it ain’t easy
느끼기 싫은 거야 질투 시기
(no way no way) 가볍게 말해 game
근데 질 순 없지
결국에 우린 본능에 의해 참여를 해
선택이 없는 거야 그러니까 그만 좀 빼

Men are from Mars
Women are from Venus
We’re so far away
칭얼댈수록 달아나는 Boys
멈추지 못해 Girls
Men are from Mars
Women are from Venus
It’s so different
점점 멀어지는 Boys

Men are from Mars
Women are from Venus
We’re so far away
칭얼댈수록 달아나는 Boys
멈추지 못해 Girls
Men are from Mars
Women are from Venus
It’s so different
점점 멀어지는 Boys
점점 깊어만 가는 Girls

(그냥 푹 빠져
죽 속에 들어가는 숟가락처럼
왜 자꾸 계산해
너 그리고 나 둘 다 피곤하게
Right girl I think it’s time that
we make a choice right now)

Boys and Girls (feat. Swings)

Boys and Girl
Ladies and gentlemen,
Girls and Boys
Let’s get ready to rumble
Let’s go

Men are from Mars
Women are from Venus
We’re so far away
Men are from Mars
Women are from Venus
It’s so different

The push and pull love game
Though I say I hate it, No No No No
Instinctively, pounding on the calculator in my head
Tick Tack Tick Tack

Measure this, that, of course nitpicking things
Innocent love, where does that happen in this world

Boys Say, ‘Just true to my instinct’ Oh Oh
Girls Day, ‘Now I can’t be without you’

Men are from Mars
Women are from Venus
It’s so different
Peevishly running away, Boys
Unable to stop, Girls
Men are from Mars
Women are from Venus
It’s so different
Slowly getting further away, Boys
Slowly getting in deeper, Girls

This game that we playin’ right now,
it’s eternal you know that right

Always feverishly starting, Boys
Always confining and obsessing, Girls
Bye Bye, Cooly breaking up, Boys
So Sick, Tears of Pain, Girls

Girls like to go out and party,
you know that you know
Guys, we just wanna get it on at the crib
you know what I mean

Men are from Mars
Women are from Venus
It’s so different
Peevishly running away, Boys
Unable to stop, Girls
Men are from Mars
Women are from Venus
It’s so different
Slowly getting further away, Boys
Slowly getting in deeper, Girls

Already this game is over
why don’t you know girl
If you like me, show it
You always start a show
I hate it, coyness
If you like me like I like you,
all you need to do is you like me
Why are you so complicated?
I don’t understand that
The games you play are too much, it’s mean
(I know I know)
You don’t have a clue girl
No No, you’ll never know

(fallin’ in love)
Yeah, you don’t want to fall over and get hurt
Women protect their feelings
(fallin’ in love) it ain’t easy
Don’t want to feel it, the green-eyed monster
(no way no way) simply say it, game
But I can’t lose
As a result we take part in rely on instincts
There’s no choice so please just vacate

Men are from Mars
Women are from Venus
It’s so different
Peevishly running away, Boys
Unable to stop, Girls
Men are from Mars
Women are from Venus
It’s so different
Slowly getting further away, Boys

Men are from Mars
Women are from Venus
It’s so different
Peevishly running away, Boys
Unable to stop, Girls
Men are from Mars
Women are from Venus
It’s so different
Slowly getting further away, Boys
Slowly getting in deeper, Girls

(Just fall in deeper,
like a spoon sinking in porridge
Why do you keep scheming
You and I, making both of us tired
Right girl I think it’s time that
we make a choice right now)
