Jive Monkey Playlist: 4/13/15

I’ve been feeling very lackluster about the recent album releases like those from Girls’ Generation and Miss A.  I really wanted a fun, Spring-y type of song but found myself going back to songs like Busker Busker’s “벚꽃 엔딩 (Cherry Blossom Ending)”, Roy Kim’s “봄봄봄 (Spring Spring Spring)” and K.Will’s “Love Blossom”.  I probably would have never felt that Primary’s new release last week was very Spring-y if it weren’t for Kim Bum Soo but it’s definitely a song I took to right away.

In fact, if I weren’t looking at through my playlist and didn’t see it was a Primary song, I would have probably assumed that Kim Bum Soo had released another single.  Perhaps that’s why I feel that Primary is such a versatile artist.

He can do Hip-Hop and R&B and with his fellow Amoeba Culture crew, it sounds very unique to them.  However you can take the same song and do it with a great vocalist like Kim Bum Soo and it’s got a very soulful, funky sound.

“조만간 봐요 (See You Soon)” is just that.  Kim Bum Soo adds a lot of soul to this upbeat track but the lyrics themselves have two conflicting messages.  The song itself is about a guy who wants to be with the girl he likes.  However, a part of him doesn’t mind being lead on by her while the other part, as expressed by Gaeko, shows the mixed emotions of crushing on someone alone and being a pushover.

프라이머리(Primary) – 조만간 봐요 (feat. BSK, 개코)

친구는 김칫국 마시지 말래* – It literally translates as. “My friends tell me not to drink the Kimchi soup,” but it basically means to not buy into everything that’s given to you.

조만간 봐요 (feat. BSK, 개코)

너무 조급해 보이면 안돼
지금 내 말투는 너무 착해
한심한 농담을 하네
(그건 무리수야 무리수)

어색한 침묵을 깨려다 보면
자꾸 말이 너와 겹치게 돼
우리가 잘될 확률은
(정말 미지수야 미지수)

너무 젠틀한 레이디
Love you Sunday to Monday
끊지마 안돼
우리의 짧았던 대화는 곧 마무리

우리 조만간 봐요
넌 항상 그렇게 말해요
지키지 못할 약속이란 걸 알아도
난 좋아
그러니까 조만간 언제 봐요
정확한 날짜를 말해봐요
(며칠 몇 시)
날 애태울 맘 없는 거 알아
니가 좋아 호구의 러브

날아갈 듯 들떠있다가도
여권 없는 국경에 서있는 것 같애
친구는 김칫국 마시지 말래*
후루룩 짭짭 후루룩 쭙 짭짭

너무 늦지도 이르지도 않게
다시 연락할 타이밍을 찾네
실수로 누른 척 할까
뚜루루 딸깍 뚜루루 뚝 딸깍

너무 젠틀한 레이디
Love you Sunday to Monday
끊지마 안돼
우리의 짧았던 대화는 또 마무리

우리 조만간 봐요
넌 항상 그렇게 말해요
지키지 못할 약속이란 걸 알아도
난 좋아
그러니까 조만간 언제 봐요
정확한 날짜를 말해봐요
(며칠 몇 시)
애태울 맘 없는 거 알아
니가 좋아

호구의 러브
차라리 단칼에 잘라주면 해
난 지금 만감이
시부야 교차로 같애
우왕좌왕하다가 혼자서 불태우다
만취하다 답답해서 화병 나겠네
좋다가 애틋하다 미워해
북치고 장구 치다 망한 원맨 밴드
You 평정을 잃은 나를
완전히 평정한 다음
구석에 치워놓은 듯해

우리 조만간 봐요
넌 항상 그렇게 말해요
지키지 않을 약속이란 걸 알아도
난 좋아
그러니까 조만간 언제 봐요
정확한 날짜를 말해봐요
(며칠 몇 시)
만나줄 맘 없는 거 알아
그냥 좋아 호구의 러브

See You Soon (feat. BSK, Gaeko)

Can’t look impatient
My words are too nice right now
Keep telling pathetic jokes
(It’s too much, too much)

If I try to break the awkward silence
I keep talking over you
The chance that we’d do well
(Really an unknown variable, unknown)

A very gentle lady
Love you Sunday to Monday
Don’t hang up, no
Our short dialogue will wrap up soon

Let’s see each other soon
You always say that
I know it’s a promise you can’t keep
But I’m still happy
So when can I see you soon
Give me an actual date
(What date, what time)
Know you don’t mean to make me nervous
I like you, a pushover’s love

Floating like I’m about to fly
Like I’m standing at the border without a passport
My friends tells me not to drink the Kool-Aid*
Slurp, slurp, gulp, slurp, gulp, gulp

It’s not too late or too early
Find another opportunity to contact again
Shall I pretend that I dialed by mistake?
Ddoo roo roo Click Ddoo roo roo Click, click

A very gentle lady
Love you Sunday to Monday
Don’t hang up, no
Our short dialogue will wrap up soon

Let’s see each other soon
You always say that
I know it’s a promise you can’t keep
But I’m still happy
So when can I see you soon
Give me an actual date
(What date, what time)
Know you don’t mean to make me nervous
I like you

A pushover’s love
Rather you cut things off like a knife
Now I have mixed emotions
Like the crossroads of Shibuya
Go this way and that, carrying a torch alone
Being drunk, about to be sick waiting for you
Like you ardently and then hate you
Beating drums and the janggu,
a dying one-man band
You, lost my peace of mind
Completely calm and then
Feel like I’ve been swept into the corner

Let’s see each other soon
You always say that
I know it’s a promise you can’t keep
But I’m still happy
So when can I see you soon
Give me an actual date
(What date, what time)
Know you don’t want to actually meet me
I just like you, a pushover’s love
