Jive Monkey Playlist: 2/24/14

Happy Friday!  Eeerrr Monday!  No, you’re not in some alternate universe.  I’ve been thinking about making some programming changes to the weekly posts and see how the different vibe would shake things up.  Instead of starting your week off with my fangirl post of the week (aka Just Bananas About), I thought it would be a great jumpstart with a new tune.  Sometimes you just need a good song to get you up and off on a good mood, especially on Mondays.  Amiright?  The Bananas posts will resume now on Fridays.

The song that’s been basically playing in my head (over and over again) recently is Soyu and Jung Gi Go’s “썸 (Some)”.  It’s not like I haven’t featured songs like this before or the lyrics are superb.  It’s for the simple fact that the song is extremely catchy and makes good use of both rhythm and lyrics to swirl over and over again in your head.

My ears are always open when I see idol singers go off on their own to release a solo or album.  There’s a sexy type of style associated with Sistar but I always feel that their songs are more on the side of fun, rather than deep.  And that’s totally okay with me as you don’t need a song to be profound in order to enjoy it.  However, I like that this song is about conflicted feelings.  And I think that’s in part due to Jung Gi Go’s contribution to the track.  There’s an aloof complexity to his voice which makes him come off as being interested without appearing too desperate.  Add Geek’s Lil Boi’s rap to the track which adds another layer of honesty and you get to the heart of what happening between this couple.

The music video features B1A4’s Baro and Sistar’s Boram… and a cute lil teddy bear who Boram gets out her frustrations on.  That’s okay, the teddy bear turns around gets his frustration back out on Baro.  Hee hee.  Super cute.

썸 (Feat. 릴보이 of 긱스)

가끔씩 나도 모르게 짜증이나
너를 향한 맘은 변하지 않았는데
혹시 내가 이상한 걸까
혼자 힘들게 지내고 있었어

텅 빈 방 혼자 멍하니 뒤척이다
티비에는 어제 본 것 같은 드라마
잠이 들 때까지
한번도 울리지 않는 핸드폰을 들고

요즘따라 내꺼인 듯
내꺼 아닌 내꺼 같은 너
니꺼인 듯 니꺼 아닌 니꺼 같은 나
이게 무슨 사이인 건지 사실 헷갈려
무뚝뚝하게 굴지마
연인인 듯 연인 아닌 연인 같은 너
나만 볼 듯 애매하게 날 대하는 너
때로는 친구 같다는 말이
괜히 요즘 난 듣기 싫어졌어

매일 아침 너의 문자에 눈을 뜨고
하루 끝에는 니 목소리에 잠들고 파
주말에는 많은 사람 속에서
보란 듯이 널 끌어 안고 싶어

요즘 따라 내꺼인 듯
내꺼 아닌 내꺼 같은 너
니꺼인 듯 니꺼 아닌 니꺼 같은 나
이게 무슨 사이인 건지 사실 헷갈려
무뚝뚝하게 굴지마
연인인 듯 연인 아닌 연인 같은 너
나만 볼 듯 애매하게 날 대하는 너
때로는 친구 같다는 말이
괜히 요즘 난 듣기 싫어졌어

너 요즘 너 별로야 너 별로야
나 근데 난 너뿐이야 난 너뿐이야
분명하게 내게 선을 그어줘
자꾸 뒤로 빼지 말고 날 사랑한다 고백해 줘

Rap> 여전히 친구인척
또 연인인척
행동하는 모습을 전부다 돌이켜
생각 할 수록
너의 진심이 더 궁금해지는 걸
girl you’re so
ambiguous 난 못해 무엇도
아니 어쩌면 기적을 바라지 lotto
확실한 표현을 원하지만
너의 미소 띈 표정에 잊어버리지 난

요즘 따라
내꺼인 듯 내꺼 아닌 내꺼 같은 너
니꺼인 듯 니꺼 아닌 니꺼 같은 나
순진한 척
웃지만 말고 그만 좀 해
너 솔직하게 좀 굴어봐
니 맘 속에 날 놔두고 한 눈 팔지 마
너야말로 다 알면서 딴청 피우지 마
피곤하게 힘 빼지 말고 어서 말해줘
사랑한단 말이야

Some (Feat. Lil Boi of Geeks)

Sometimes, even without knowing it, I get annoyed
Even though my feelings towards you haven’t changed
By any chance is there something wrong with me?
I was having a hard time on my own

Empty room, alone, inanely tossing and turning
On the TV, the drama I might have seen yesterday
Until I fall asleep,
holding my cell phone that hasn’t rung once

These days,
it feels like you’re mine, like you’re mine but you’re not
it feels like I’m yours, like I’m yours but I’m not
What is this relationship? It’s confusing.
Don’t be so aloof
Like lovers, like lovers who are not lovers, you
Whenever you’re looking at me, acting so vaguely, you
Sometimes people say we’re like friends
These days I’m hate hearing that

Every morning, I open my eyes to your text
At the end of the day, I want to fall asleep with your voice
On the weekends, with all these people around
Want to proudly pull you into an embrace

These days,
it feels like you’re mine, like you’re mine but you’re not
it feels like I’m yours, like I’m yours but I’m not
What is this relationship? It’s confusing.
Don’t be so aloof
Like lovers, like lovers who are not lovers, you
Whenever you’re looking at me, acting so vaguely, you
Sometimes people say we’re like friends
These days I’m hate hearing that

These days, I don’t really like you, don’t like you
But for me, me, there’s only you, only you
Plainly draw the line for me
Stop taking a back step, confess that you love me

Rap> As ever, pretending to be friends
and pretending to be lover again
Looking back on all the way you do things
The more I think about it,
I’m growing more curious about your real feelings
girl you’re so
ambiguous, I can’t do it, anything
No, maybe I’m hoping for a miracle, lotto
I want a definite sign
I forget all about it when I see your smile

These days,
it feels like you’re mine, like you’re mine but you’re not
it feels like I’m yours, like I’m yours but I’m not
Pretending you’re innocent,
don’t just laugh but stop it
Try being honest for once
Don’t place me in your heart and have wandering eyes
And stop acting like you don’t know when you do know
Stop wasting energy, just tell me already
That you love me
