Jive Monkey Playlist: 8/24/15

This weekend, Infinity Challenge finally aired their Young Dong Highway Music Festival which was filmed earlier this month on the Pyeongchang Winter Olympic grounds.  Despite the unfortunate incident where festival goers left behind tons of garbage and fans of Zion.T accidentally dialing the wrong number and filling the mailbox of a regular person, it seems to have gone off without too much of a hitch.  Although I liked most of the song from the various groups, I picked 3 songs to feature on this week’s playlist.

IU and Park Myung Soo may have had their differences about whether to bring EDM to the mix but I think the end result just proved that they both have something to bring to the table when it comes to music.  Their team name is a play on words meaning “a reason without a reason” which incorporates both their names.

The song is called “레옹 (Leon)” and the characters depicted in it are based on the movie,  Leon: The Professional, starring Jean Reno and Natalie Portman.  I love that the song starts with a slow sultry vibe but that it escalates into EDM.  What’s even more hilarious is that Yoo Jae Hwan, Park Myung Soo’s employee at his EDM factory and who gets all giggly at the sight of IU, makes an appearance at the concert.  And we’ve heard through the previous episodes, how much Park Myung Soo needed help with the rap that I’m not surprised that the audience rapped along with him.

이유 갓지(GOD G) 않은 이유 (박명수, 아이유) – 레옹

레옹

레레 레레레옹
레레레 레레레옹 레레레옹
레레 레레레 레레

눈에 띄게 흰 피부에 입술은 피빨강
꼿꼿하게 핀 허리에 새침한 똑단발

못된 걸음으로 또 어디를 가나
누굴 찾는 것 같아
이 외로운 마틸다

티키타 리듬에 맞춰 스핀
기타 리프 테마는 스팅의
Shape Of My Heart
난 나잇값을 떼먹은 남자
Call Me 레옹 Call Me 레옹 Call Me 레옹
Call Me Call Call Call Call Call Call Me

시끄러운 사람들 틈에
왜 당신은 조금도 춤을 추지 않나요
나 그대가 궁금해 알 수 없는 표정에
까만 선글라스

Mon Cher, Look At Me
춤추고 싶지 않아
Mon Cher, Look At Me
이유는 캐묻지 말아
Hey Baby, Look At Me
슬픈 눈을 들키고 싶지 않아
더는 다가오지 말아 (깜빡)

왜 그렇게 무뚝뚝하나요
상냥하게 좀 해줄래요, ma 레옹?
나도 어디서 꿀리진 않아
내 Choice는 틀리지 않아
I’m 마, 마틸다 I’m 마, 마 마틸다
I’m 마, 마틸타 I’m 마 I’m I’m마 I’m마

잔잔히 잠들은 내 맘에
왜 돌을 던져
날 춤추고 싶게 만들어
흔들리는 눈빛을 감추어주오 나의
까만 선글라스

Ma Cher, What You Need
나처럼 춤을 춰요
Ma Cher, What You Need
아 튕기지 좀 마요
Hey Baby, What You Need
그래 앞에 나를 봐요
자 이제 춤을 춰요 (깜빡)

Un Deux Trois Quatre

레레 레레레 레레 레 레레옹

Mon Cher, Look At Me

Hey Baby, What You Need
그래 앞에 나를 봐요
자 이제 춤을 춰요 춰요 (깜빡)

Leon

Lele leleleon
Lelele leleleon leleleon
Lele lelele lele

Visibly apparent, your pale skin and blood red lips
Standing upright at the waist, a prim short haircut

With a wicked step, where are you going again
Seems like you’re looking for someone,
this lonely Matilda

With a tikita rhythm and matching spin
Guitar riff theme sting
Shape Of My Heart
I’m a man whose borrowed against my age
Call Me Leon Call Me Leon Call Me Leon
Call Me Call Call Call Call Call Call Me

Amongst the noisy people
Why don’t you dance a little bit?
I’m curious about you with your puzzling expression and
Black sunglasses

Mon Cher, Look At Me
Don’t you want to dance?
Mon Cher, Look At Me
Don’t press for a reason
Hey Baby, Look At Me
Don’t want to get caught with sad eyes
Don’t come near me anymore (blink)

Why are you so cold like that?
Will you try to be gentle, ma Leon?
Don’t feel inferior just anywhere
My Choice isn’t wrong
I’m Ma, Matilda I’m Ma, Ma Matilda
I’m Ma, Matilda I’m Ma, I’m I’m Ma I’m Ma

Quietly sleeping my heart
Why do you throw stones,
you make me want to dance
Hide your wavering stare, with my
Black sunglasses

Ma Cher, What You Need
Dance like me
Ma Cher, What You Need
Ah, don’t push me away
Hey Baby, What You Need
Yeah, look at me from the front
Now let’s dance (blink)

Un Deux Trois Quatre

Ma Cher, What You Need
Dance like me

Ah, don’t push me away
Hey Baby, What You Need

Now let’s dance (blink)

Next, there’s Zion.T and Haha whose collaboration I was looking forward to because they are both musicians.  Together, they came up with the team name, “Ow, Hot Damn” which suits the quirkiness of both the artists.  I was surprised to find “스폰서 ($ponsor)” to be so sexy and I have to say that it’s worth it to watch Haha dance on stage because he’s quite good.

The word sponsor has a negative connotation in Korea, akin to Sugar Daddy, but the pair manages to bring humor and charm to the track.  Zion.T’s dad, who made an appearance on the show a few weeks bacck, also made a cameo appearance on the LED screens at the concert.  In fact, it was Zion.T’s dad who recited Zion.T’s phone number* at the concert.  The phone number was active for a week following the concert with pre-recorded message but for the broadcast and the recording, it was bleeped out.

Finally, there’s Hyukoh Band and Jung Hyung Don who decided to change things up with a little bit of country.  Now, I’m not a big fan of country music but I think Oh Hyuk did a great job with this musical-esque type of number.  I still felt that it shouldn’t have been the song to end the show but considering that no one knew who they were when they first appeared on the show and not only received great interest because of Infinity Challenge but was also able to sign with Tablo’s new record label, I’d say that the band has come very far in a short time.

They didn’t have a group name by the time of the concert so one of the audience members shouted out “The 5 Emperors” which seemed to strike a chord with everyone.  The song, titled “멋진헛간 (Great Barn)” is about a prodigal son who only thought of himself when he was young.  They use the metaphor of the barn to indicate the idea of a barn raising which should be a community based activity.  However, he uses the barn to amass wealth for himself.  When his life savings are stolen, he returns home having realized that he eaten away at himself.

오대천왕 (정형돈, 밴드 혁오) – 멋진헛간

멋진헛간

One, Two, Three, Four
걸음마 떼고 젖병을 꽉 쥐고선
하룰 멀다 하고 주린 배를 채웠지
그 작은 엉덩이는 쉴 틈이 없었고
토닥이는 손길에
또 욕심은 부푸네Hey Hey

시간은 또 금세 흘러
기댈 품을 떠나서
못 찾을 외딴 곳에
멋진 헛간을 지었지
발 디딜 틈도 없이
나름 가득 채웠는데
어느 날 문을 여니 이런 도둑이 들었네

Holy Mama Mama Papa
내 두 눈으로 봤어요
세차게 담았는데 다 텅 비어 있네요
Be Born Again gain gain gain
and gain gain 너무 늦었나 봐요
다시 돌아간다 해도
누가 날 받아 줄라나요 Hey Hey Hey

저린 다릴 부여잡고 난 슬피도 울었어
저 해가 떨어지면 도둑을 잡아야 해
주위를 둘러보다
바닥을 훑어보니
오갔던 발자국이 내꺼 하나뿐이네

Holy Mama Mama Papa
내 두 눈으로 봤어요
세차게 담았는데 다 텅 비어 있네요
Be Born Again gain gain gain
and gain gain 너무 늦었나 봐요
다시 돌아간다 해도
누가 날 받아 줄라나요 Hey Hey Hey

엄마, 아빠 이기 다 내 탓이가?
내는 잘 모르겠다 내는 진짜 모르겠다

집에 돌아가는 길에
나는 또 후회를 해야 해
어디서부터 망한지를 몰라
다시 돌아가는 일을 반복해야 해
근데 다시 또 생각해봐도
뭐가 뭔지도 잘 모르겠어
아빠 내가 그 탕자인가 봐요
And You’ll Say No No No No No No No

Mama

Great Barn

One, Two, Three, Four
Toddling and holding tight my baby bottle
The day is long and fill my hungry stomach
No place to rest for that small ass
With patting hand
Again my greed inflates Hey Hey

The time again goes by soon,
leaving nowhere to lean on
Unable to find, at a remote place
Built a great barn
Where no one will tread on
Fully packed it
One day, as I opened the door, there was this thief

Holy Mama Mama Papa
Saw it with my two eyes
Filled it to the brim, but now it’s empty
Be Born Again gain gain gain
and gain gain, it must be too late
Even if we go back again
Who will accept me now, Hey Hey Hey

Holding my numb legs I cried mournfully
When that sun sets, need to catch the thief
As I looked around my surroundings and
surveyed the floor
The footprints that come and go are only mine

Holy Mama Mama Papa
Saw it with my two eyes
Filled it to the brim, but now it’s empty
Be Born Again gain gain gain
and gain gain, it must be too late
Even if we go back again
Who will accept me now, Hey Hey Hey

Mom, Dad, is this all my fault?
I just don’t know, I just don’t really know

As I returned home
I must regret again
Where did I go wrong, I don’t know
Now I must repeat the work to return again
But if I think about it again
Don’t know what anything is
Dad, I must be that prodigal son
And You’ll Say No No No No No No No

Mama
