Jive Monkey Playlist: 4/27/15

It hasn’t been too long since I did an old school post but with the popularity of Infinity Challenge’s 90’s themed concert there been a number of other concerts featuring 90’s artists.  Most recently, KBS featured their Concert7080 with a 90’s Saturday Night Fever theme as well.  This weekly broadcast typically featured 70’s and 80’s artists, hence the name.  The various television appearances of these artists even spawned a nationwide concert as well.

One of the first groups to come up on stage is the Young Turks Club and their style of music was dance and ballads.  I remember that they constantly had fluctuating members from album to album but at the time that “타인 (Stranger)” came out in their 2nd album, they had 5 members.  Not all the members came back in their most recent appearance and you could tell that they’ve aged quite a bit as the dance proved to be a little hard for them to keep up with.  Still, what I loved about “타인 (Stranger)” was the catchy slow beat with the overlapping singing and rapping.

영턱스 클럽 – 타인

타인

한번만 안아주세요
마지막 밤이잖아요
이렇게 헝클어놓은
내맘을 달래주세요
한번만 안아주세요
마지막 부탁이예요
이렇게 그대 그냥 가버리시면
다신 볼 수 없잖아요

그래 날 잊어 나를 모두 잊어
기억에 매달려도 소용없어
잊어 비오는 거리에서
가끔 우산없이 흠뻑 젖고 싶은 마음
으로 잊어 이렇게 생각해버려
나보다 더 아름다운 사랑을
만나기 위해서 잠시 스쳐간 인연이라고
그래 나역시 그리쉽
진 않겠지 나를 사랑해선 안돼
추억해도 안돼 우연이라해
도 다시봐선 안돼
니 속에 담겨진 내 모든 기억들을 모조
리 꺼내버려봐
그동안의 사랑은 믿어줘 하지만 더 이상은
안돼 이렇게는 안돼 차라리 혼자되는
아픔을 선택해

촛불은 켜지 말아요
이대로 그냥 있어요
그대의 슬픈 눈빛은
볼수가 없으니까요
아무말 하지 말아요
상처가 될테니까요
혹시나 그대 음성 떨리신다면
보내드릴 수 없으니

불을 꺼줘 어둠속에 있게
가슴속에 우리 추억 꺼내놓으면
이 어둠에 다시는 찾을수 없게
들켜버린 눈물도 싫으니까
그대 모습과 그대 목소리
이제 희미하게 지워져 여기 어둠
속에 아주 멀리 그댈 멀리 보낼 수 있을것 같아

새벽이 오려나 봐요
커튼을 열지 말아요
눈부신 빛이 싫어요
두려워질 테니까요
미안해 하지말아요
행복한 사랑하세요
그렇게 어렵지는 않을거예요
나하나 잊는다는건
한번만 안아주세요
또다른 아침이예요
이렇게 헝클어놓은
내맘을 달래주세요
미안해 하지말아요
행복한 사랑하세요
그렇게 어렵지는 않을거예요
나하난 잊는다는건

Stranger

Please just hug me once
It’s the last night
Entangled like this
Please soothe my heart
Please just hug me once
It’s my last request
If you just leave like this
Won’t be able to see you again

Yeah, just forget me, forget all about me
There’s no use in hanging on to memories
Forget the rainy street
Want to sometimes be drenched without an umbrella
Forget it, think of
A more beautiful love than I
In order to meet that, this is just a brief connection
Yeah, I also don’t want to
do that, don’t love me,
Don’t look back on me, it’s just a coincidence
Can’t see each other again,
All memories of me absorbed in you
Take it out,
Meanwhile believe in love but we can’t anymore
Not like this, rather being alone
I choose pain

Don’t turn on the candle light
Just stay here like this
Your sad look
Can’t look at it
Don’t say anything
Because it will become a wound
In case your voice trembles
Can’t send you away

Turn off the light, so we can be in the dark
If we take out the memories in our heart
So that we can’t find it again in this darkness
Don’t even like the tears you caught me shed
The image of you, your voice,
Now murky, erased, in this darkness here
Far, very far, think I can send you away

Dawn must be coming
Don’t open the curtain
Don’t like the blinding light
Because I’ll dread it
Don’t be sorry
Love happily
It won’t be that hard
Forgetting someone like me
Please just hug me once
It’s again another morning
Entangled like this
Please soothe my heart
Don’t be sorry
Love happily
It won’t be that hard
Forgetting someone like me

One artist whose voice has not managed to change all that much is Park Mi Kyung.  She had a really powerful diva voice in the 90’s and I was surprised to see that she can still belt it out better than most of her juniors.  She actually debuted in 1985 but I remember that her first full-length studio album came out in 1994.  “이유같지 않은 이유 (A Reason That’s Not a Reason)” is an upbeat song about a woman who is not going to let a guy bs her.  It’s like a powerful feminist anthem and it really suits Park Mi Kyung and her strong vocals.

박미경 – 이유같지 않은 이유 (2009 Remastering)

이유같지 않은 이유

아 — 아 —

아무것도 필요 없어
니가 나를 떠나려 한다면
나를 사랑했단 말도
모두 연극처럼 느낄 뿐야
마음이 변했다면 이유를 대지마
오— 예-
내가 싫어진걸 난 알고 있어
가식적인 말로 나를 위로하려고 하지마

이젠 기대하지 않아
너의 곁엔 다른 얼굴 다른 모습 뿐야
다시는 나도 돌아가지 않아
너를 위해 더 이상 난 슬퍼지긴 싫어

무슨 말을 하는 거야
나는 너를 이해할 수 없어
이유 같지 않은 이유로
나를 설득하려고 하지마
이젠 내 맘속엔 너의 자린 없어
오— 예-
모두 버린 거야 지금까지
내게 남겨진 슬픈 사랑의 모든 기억들

이젠 기대하지 않아
너의 곁엔 다른 얼굴 다른 모습 뿐야
다시는 나도 돌아가지 않아
너를 위해 더 이상 난 슬퍼지긴 싫어

이젠 기대하지 않아
너의 곁엔 다른 얼굴 다른 모습 뿐야
다시는 나도 돌아가지 않아
너를 위해 더 이상 난 슬퍼지긴 싫어

이젠 기대하지 않아
너의 곁엔 다른 얼굴 다른 모습 뿐야
다시는 나도 돌아가지 않아
너를 위해 더 이상 난 슬퍼지긴 싫어

A Reason That’s Not a Reason

Ah— Ah—

Don’t need anything
If you are going to leave me
Said that you loved me
Felt like it was all just a play
If your feelings have changed, don’t give a reason
Oh— yeah-
The thing that I hate is that I know
With fake words, don’t try to comfort me

Now I’m not expecting anything
Only a different face and image beside you
Not going back again
Not going to be sad because of you

What are you saying?
I can’t understand you
With a reason that’s not a reason
Don’t try to persuade me
Now there’s no space for you in my heart
Oh—yeah-
Up until now, threw everything away
All the memories of a sad love that you left behind

Now I’m not expecting anything
Only a different face and image beside you
Not going back again
Not going to be sad because of you

Now I’m not expecting anything
Only a different face and image beside you
Not going back again
Not going to be sad because of you

Now I’m not expecting anything
Only a different face and image beside you
Not going back again
Not going to be sad because of you

Finally, I was really ecstatic to see Clon together again.  I have not seen Kang Won Rae and Goo Joon Yup on stage together since the 90’s.  The duo were actively performing until Kang Won Rae’s devastating motorcycle accident in 2000 which caused him to be paraplegic.  It was really sad for a lot of fans because he was a really talented dancer and started as Park Mi Kyung’s backup dancer before branching out into his own group.

This was not one of the songs that they sang at Concert 7080 but it is still one of my favorite Clon songs.  The title “빙빙빙 (Bing, Bing, Bing)” is an onomatopoeia to reflect the dizzying feeling of being spun around or circling around.  In the case of the lyrics in this song, the guy feels like he’s been taken for a ride with a girl who has put him in the friend zone where he originally thought that they might have had some chemistry.

클론 – 빙빙빙

빙빙빙

난 처음에는 알지 못했지
니가나를 별로로 생각한다는걸
니가 나를 좋아하는 만큼
너도 나를 좋아한다고 난믿어왔었지
그러나 너를 만나고
또 만나고 만나면 마날수록 나의 기대는
조금씩 무너졌지
그냥 그져 좋은 친구 사이로
지내자는 게 그렇고 그런 뜻인 걸 알았지만

이렇게 내가 빙빙빙
너를 맴맴맴 도는 것이
니곁을 내가 영영영원히 겉도는 거라면
더 이상 발을 동동동 굴러
맘맘맘 상하면서
니곁을 다시 뱅뱅뱅
돌며 살진 않겠어

예예예 예이에이에헤헤 오
예예예 예예예예
이런것도 사랑인가 생각하면
나도 그만 웃음이 나지 나를 사랑하지 않는
너를 마냥바라보며
사는것도 지쳤어
너를 처음부터 알지 않았다면
이럴 필요조차 없는데
오늘도 난 너를 보며 바보처럼
조금 서글퍼진 마음으로 돌아서지

나나나나나 나나나나 나나 나나
나나나나나 나나나나 나나 나나
나는 딱 두 번 너를 만난 후부터
네게 그만 푹빠졌었지만
나를 딱 두번 만난 후부터
너는 누군가를 또 만나곤 했었지
그렇게 나를 무지하게 무시하며
무관심해도
난 어쩔수가 없었지
너를 멀리 아주 멀리 하고
싶었지만 어느새 나는 니 곁에 서 있었지

Bing, Bing, Bing

I didn’t know it at first
That you were not so into me
As much as you said you liked me
I believed that you liked me as much
But after seeing you
And seeing you again, my expectations
Little by little broke down
Just good friends
Knew what it meant to be just that by the way

Like this I’m bing, bing, bing
Cir, cir, circling around you
Beside you, fo, fo, forever circling around you
Won’t stamp, stamp, stamp my feet anymore
As my heart hurts, hurts, hurts,
Again beside you ‘round, ‘round, ‘round
Won’t live like this no more

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yehe yehe, yehehe oh
Yeah, yeah yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Wonder if this is love
I stop smiling, not in love with me,
You, who I continuously stare at
Tired of living
If I didn’t know you from the beginning
There’s no need for this
When I see you today, feel like an idiot
A bit saddened, my heart, I turn back

Nanananana nananana nana nana
Nanananana nananana nana nana
After just two times meeting you
I fell deeply for you
After just two times meeting me
You started seeing someone else
That’s you became extremely ignorant
and indifferent
I couldn’t do anything
Just kept you far, at a far distance
Wanted to do that but somehow I’m by your side
