Jive Monkey Playlist: 3/3/14

2NE1 is finally back!  It’s not like they’ve been away really.  But their single releases felt very mediocre.  It’s nice to hear an eclectic mix of new bold sounds from them especially the rapping in this recent mini album, “Crush”.

“너 아님 안돼 (No One, If Not You)” or also known as “Gotta Be You” is an eletro-synth pop that’s one their title tracks on the album.  I can’t say that the melody is all that unique to them but it is catchy.  The thing I like about the song the most is the rapping.  It blends so seamlessly with the melody and gives a great clubby and rhythmical vibe to the track.  I like the edge it gives the group.

2NE1 – 너 아님 안돼 (No One, If Not You)

2NE1 – 너 아님 안돼

너 아님 안돼

새로운 만남은 싫어 왠지 몰라도
여전히 네가 많이 미워 아직도
운명 같던 만남이
이젠 님에서 남이 되어
떠나갔어 아직도 맴도는 너의 향기
We used to be all turnt up
우린 멀어졌어 점점
넌 아니라 했지만 두고 봐
사랑의 역전
오늘도 외쳐
그전처럼 let’s go
앞으로 rewind
처음으로 X O

아직도 널 잊지 못하고 있는
내 모습이 나 싫은데
잊으려 잊으려 해도 그게 안돼 everyday
너 아니면 안 된다고
끝이란 있을 수 없다고

It ain’t over til it’s over
It ain’t over til it’s over
It ain’t over til it’s over

너의 사랑이 날 망쳐도
날 아프게 한대도
내겐 오직 너 하나뿐
내 사랑은 너로 시작해 너로 끝나
이 자리에 Waiting for you

너 아님 안돼 No
My one and only oh oh oh
너 아님 안돼 No
내 곁엔 너 아니면 안돼 난

다시 날 가둬 너라는 감옥에
너 없는 현실이 가혹해
죽을 만큼 힘들어도 I don’t care
난 여우니까 목숨이 아홉 개
수백 번 날 부숴도
매섭게 몰아치는 너란 파도
I’m Okay 아파도 사랑 앞에 난 desperado
누가 뭐라 하던 간에
난 아무도 상관 안 해
우리 같이 춤추던 그 노래는
아직 안 끝났기에
널 향해 지금 외쳐
그전처럼 let’s go
앞으로 rewind
처음으로 X O

마지막이라고 차갑게 말하던
네 모습이 싫은데
지우려 지우려 해도 자꾸 난 널 그리네
너 아니면 안 된다고
끝이란 있을 수 없다고

It ain’t over til it’s over
It ain’t over til it’s over
It ain’t over til it’s over

너의 사랑이 날 망쳐도
날 아프게 한대도
내겐 오직 너 하나뿐
내 사랑은 너로 시작해 너로 끝나
이 자리에 Waiting for you

너 아님 안돼 No
My one and only oh oh oh
너 아님 안돼 No
내 곁엔 너 아니면 안돼 난

눈을 감아도 생각나
니 얼굴 표정 하나하나

넌 나의 첨이자 마지막 사랑이야
don’t say good bye

너의 사랑이 날 망쳐도
날 아프게 한대도
내겐 오직 너 하나뿐
내 사랑은 너로 시작해 너로 끝나
이 자리에 Waiting for you

너 아님 안돼 No
My one and only oh oh oh
너 아님 안돼 No
내 곁엔 너 아니면 안돼 난

No One, If Not You

Don’t want to meet someone new but don’t know why
Still hate you a lot as always
A fateful encounter
From lovers we’ve become strangers now
You’ve left me but your scent still lingers
We used to be all turnt up
But we’ve slowly grown further apart
You said it wasn’t you but you just wait for
Love’s reversal
I shout it out today
Like before, let’s go
Forward, rewind
To the beginning, X O

Still unable to forget you
I hate myself for that
Try to forget, forget but can’t do that everyday
No one, if not you
It just can’t be over

It ain’t over til it’s over
It ain’t over til it’s over
It ain’t over til it’s over

Though your love messes me up,
even though it hurts me
To me, you’re the only one
My love started with you and will end with you
Standing here, Waiting for you

No one, if not you, No
My one and only oh oh oh
No one, if not you, No
By my side, no one, if not you, for me

Trap me again in your prison
The reality of being without you is harsh
Hard like dying, I don’t care
Because I’m a fox, I have nine lives
Though you break me hundreds of times
By your fiercely hitting waves
I’m Okay, though it hurts, in front of love desperado
No matter what anyone says
I don’t care about anyone else
The song that we used to dance to
Is still not over
Now I’ll shout towards you
Like before, let’s go
Forward, rewind
To the beginning, X O

Saying it’s over coldly
I hate you for that
Though I try to erase, erase, I still keep drawing you
No one, if not you
It just can’t be over

It ain’t over til it’s over
It ain’t over til it’s over
It ain’t over til it’s over

Though your love messes me up,
even though it hurts me
To me, you’re the only one
My love started with you and will end with you
Standing here, Waiting for you

No one, if not you, No
My one and only oh oh oh
No one, if not you, No
By my side, no one, if not you, for me

Though I close my eyes, I think of you
One by one, your facial expressions

You are my first and my last love
don’t say good bye

Though your love messes me up,
even though it hurts me
To me, you’re the only one
My love started with you and will end with you
Standing here, Waiting for you

No one, if not you, No
My one and only oh oh oh
No one, if not you, No
By my side, no one, if not you, for me

Next up is “Happy”. No, not to be confused with Pharrell Williams’ “Happy” (which I also love) but this song does bring up different feelings. It’s an upbeat melody but don’t be fooled as the lyrics are decidedly bittersweet.

This song actually feels like a continuation of “너 아님 안돼 (No One, If Not You)”. The feelings after you’ve let go. You’re not happy that you’re broken up but you want to wish him well. Like “Ugly”, it’s got a refreshing honesty to it which easily makes it my favorite song on the album.

2NE1 – Happy

Happy

가끔은 내 생각할까
아님 너무 희미해
그 의미조차 어색해

널 보낸 후로 매일매일
홀로 지난 시간에
집착해 이제 초라해

혹시 부담이 됐다면
내가 짐이 됐다면
진작 떠나야 했어 미안해

나 땜에 힘들었는지
많이 불편했는지
바보처럼 눈치도 못 챈 채

Oh no I didn’t cry cry cry
어차피 누굴 원망해봤자
달라질 건 없어
다 끝이니까

널 위한 슬픈 bye bye bye
내가 없어야 행복하니까

너 없이 I’m not happy
but I hope you’re happy
멀리서 난 널 지켜볼게
너 없이 I’m not happy
but i hope you’re happy
모든 기억들은 뒤로한 채

행복하게 날 잊고 살아줘
I hope you’re H A P P Y
행복하게 날 잊고 살아줘
I wish you’re H A P P Y

I thought we had it together but well

난 노력했어 in every way
밤낮을 샜어 널 기다릴 땐
나란 여자 안에서 사랑 안에서
행복하지 않단 너의 말 Wait
제대로 먹었어 Pow
너무 아파 내 마음 Ouch
Thought you was happy
but you turned me out
쿨한 척 하느라 참은 눈물이
널 향한 내 진실된 마음
아쉽기라도 했다면 미련이 남았다면
이렇게 차갑진 못 할텐데
사랑하기는 했는지 다 거짓이었는지
바보처럼 눈치도 못 챈 채

Oh no I didn’t cry cry cry
어차피 누굴 원망해봤자
달라질 건 없어
다 끝이니까

널 위한 슬픈 bye bye bye
내가 없어야 행복하니까

너 없이 I’m not happy
but I hope you’re happy
멀리서 난 널 지켜볼게
너 없이 I’m not happy
but I hope you’re happy
모든 기억들은 뒤로한 채

행복하게 날 잊고 살아줘
I hope you’re H A P P Y
행복하게 날 잊고 살아줘
I wish you’re H A P P Y

너라도 행복해야 Happy ending
나 비꼬는 거 아냐 다 진심인 거 알아줘

너라도 행복해야 Happy ending
나 비꼬는 거 아냐 다 진심인 거 알아줄래

너 없이 I’m not happy
but I hope you’re happy
멀리서 난 널 지켜볼게
너 없이 I’m not happy
but I hope you’re happy
모든 기억들은 뒤로한 채

행복하게 날 잊고 살아줘
I hope you’re H A P P Y
행복하게 날 잊고 살아줘
I wish you’re H A P P Y

Happy

Sometimes will you think of me?
No, will it be faint
The meaning alone is too difficult to handle

After I left you go, every single day
The time spent alone,
I obsess and now I’m miserable

By any chance if you felt burdened
or if I felt like baggage
I should have left sooner, sorry

Was it hard for you because of me,
was it very uncomfortable?
Like an idiot, I didn’t notice it

Oh no I didn’t cry cry cry
Even if I resented someone
It wouldn’t have made a difference
because it’s all over

Sadness over you bye bye bye
Without me, you can be happy

Without you, I’m not happy
but I hope you’re happy
I’ll watch over you from afar
Without you, I’m not happy
but I hope you’re happy
I’ll push back all of our memories

Happily forget me and disappear
I hope you’re H A P P Y
Happily forget me and disappear
I wish you’re H A P P Y

I thought we had it together but well

I tried to make it work in every way
Stayed up all night and day when I waited for you
With a girl like me, with a love like this
Your words saying that you weren’t happy, Wait
It was such a blow, Pow,
It really hurt me, Ouch
Thought you was happy
but you turned me out
Pretending to be cool, holding back my tears
My honest feelings towards you
If you felt sorry or had any feelings left
You wouldn’t have been this cold
Did you love me or were they all lies?
Like an idiot, I didn’t notice it

Oh no I didn’t cry cry cry
Even if I resented someone
It wouldn’t have made a difference
because it’s all over

Sadness over you bye bye bye
Without me, you can be happy

Without you, I’m not happy
but I hope you’re happy
I’ll watch over you from afar
Without you, I’m not happy
but I hope you’re happy
I’ll push back all of our memories

Happily forget me and disappear
I hope you’re H A P P Y
Happily forget me and disappear
I wish you’re H A P P Y

If at least you’re happy, then it’s a Happy ending
I’m not being sarcastic, hope you see that I mean it

If at least you’re happy, then it’s a Happy ending
I’m not being sarcastic, hope you see that I mean it

Without you, I’m not happy
but I hope you’re happy
I’ll watch over you from afar
Without you, I’m not happy
but I hope you’re happy
I’ll push back all of our memories

Happily forget me and disappear
I hope you’re H A P P Y
Happily forget me and disappear
I wish you’re H A P P Y

One thought on “Jive Monkey Playlist: 3/3/14

  1. I think this is a very solid album from 2ne1. Personally, I like CBH (unplugged a bit more), Good to you and If I were you. But interestingly, most comments or reviews would peg 2-3 songs as they’re favorite and they vary for each individuals, hence proving the appeal of almost all of the songs. 🙂
