Jive Monkey Playlist: 9/28/15

Gary’s latest solo album is titled “2002” to reflect his debut with Leessang and the release of their first album and all the things he went through during that time.  If you had gotten the chance to see Gary on Healing Camp recently, he confessed how he was a different person in his early 20’s.  He was at times angry and resentful.  He’s matured a lot since then and even being on Running Man was a step towards being the funny celebrity that fans all over the world has grown to love.

However, Gary’s latest album almost didn’t happen.  Haha, not really.  It’s just that the staff and cast of Running Man wanted him to think that way.  Two weeks back, the cast and guest idols were “stranded” on the island.

The last person left on the island will not be able to leave until dawn the next morning.  When asked if anyone had a schedule the following day, Gary mentioned that he needed to finish up the 10th song on his album.  The rest of the cast had to figure out how to win the missions and leave Gary as the last one on the island.

Gary had been trying hard all day to win but fate did not appear to be with him.  Even Lee Kwang Soo, who had been joking around, managed to be one of the last ones to make it off the island.

Upon learning that he had been duped, he confronted Rap Monster asking if he had the “ㄱ” that Gary needed in order to complete his name and get off the island.  Rap Monster looks confused at first and then smiles saying that he had the leftover letter but refused to give it to Gary even though he already won the mission.  It’s a good thing that Gary was able to make it off the island because I’m really liking the album.  It’s a very reflective album about where he’s been as a misguided, immature kid.

The title song is called “바람이나 좀 쐐 (Get Some Air)” and it’s about getting out of the funk of a heartbreak.  Whether you’re dealing with a breakup or just feeling defeated by life, sometimes you need to make yourself busy and distract yourself.  The song features MIWOO, a rookie singer with Leessang Company.  At first, I thought she was Jung In because they got that similar powerful husky voice.  She just recently released her first single album.

Gary – 바람이나 좀 쐐 (feat. MIWOO)

바람이나 좀 쐐 (feat. MIWOO)

나가서 바람이나 좀 쐐
아무도 찾지 않는 곳에
조금 슬퍼 보이면 어때
너만 그런 게 아닐 텐데
때로는 lonely lonely lonely
때로는 lonely lonely lonely
나가서 바람이나 좀 쐐
아무도 찾지 않는 곳에

너와 헤어지고 난 후에 한번에 관계
역시 넌 최고였어
사랑을 할 땐 감동밖에
누가 널 만나게 될진 모르겠지만
그 자식 운이 텄네
그래 슬픈 생각보단
오히려 이렇게 쿨한게 편해
열 편의 영화 열 번의 취함
열 명의 위로와 열 번의 낮과 밤
그걸로 충분하면 좋겠어
지금 힘든 이별을 견디는 시간
많은 일들과 작은 웃음들
억지로 만들어가며 적응하는 중
좋은 것만 생각해
그래야 좀 맘이 편해
어차피 사랑도 세월 따라 다 변해
추억 같은 노래
그래 어쩌면 지금 내게 필요한 건
힘이 들 때마다
네가 항상 웃으면서 내게 했던 그 말

나가서 바람이나 좀 쐐
아무도 찾지 않는 곳에
조금 슬퍼 보이면 어때
너만 그런 게 아닐 텐데
때로는 lonely lonely lonely
때로는 lonely lonely lonely
나가서 바람이나 좀 쐐
아무도 찾지 않는 곳에

사랑은 가고 난 그냥 또 혼자 사는 남자
라면 물 맞추기 선수
가끔씩은 혼잣말하며
외로운 소파와 함께 살아
잠이 들기 전엔 TV 드라마 혹은 영화
네가 없이도 시간은 잘도 흘러가고
너의 연락 없는 전화는 그냥 꺼놔
아마 내일도 그러겠지만
알게 뭐야 끝난 거야
이미 우리 사랑은 죽었고
이별은 춥고 가슴 아픈 평화
또 때로는 무서운 밤의 긴 침묵 같은 거야
이별이 그런 거지 뭐
멀쩡하다가도 울컥하는
실컷 미워하다가 눈물 참는 거
밤이 되면 높은 빌딩
깜박거리는 빨간 불빛
그처럼 네가 떠올라 더 지쳐가는 거
이별은 그런 거야
이별은 그런 거야
멀쩡하다가도 울컥 하는 거
이별은 그런 거야
이별은 그런 거야
실컷 미워하다가도 눈물 참는 거

나가서 바람이나 좀 쐐
아무도 찾지 않는 곳에
조금 슬퍼 보이면 어때
너만 그런 게 아닐 텐데
때로는 lonely lonely lonely
때로는 lonely lonely lonely
나가서 바람이나 좀 쐐
이제는 내가 없는 곳에

Get Some Air (feat. MIWOO)

Go outside and get some air
Where no one can find you
So what if you look a little sad
It’s not only you that’s like that
Every now and then, lonely lonely lonely
Every now and then, lonely lonely lonely
Go outside and get some air
Where no one can find you

After I broke up with you, a one night stand
Really, you were the best,
When we made love, nothing but moved
Don’t know who you will date
But that guy is lucky
Yeah, rather than sad memories
It’s more comfortable being cold like this
10 movies, 10 drunken times
10 people’s consolation and 10 days and nights
It would be great if that’s enough
Now is the hardest part of the breakup
A lot of work and a little laughter
Making it happen so that I can adjust
Just think of good things
That’s the way to feel a bit comfortable
After all, love changes with the time
Like a memorable song
Yeah, really what I need now
When things get hard
That you always smile was what you said to me

Go outside and get some air
Where no one can find you
So what if you look a little sad
It’s not only you that’s like that
Every now and then, lonely lonely lonely
Every now and then, lonely lonely lonely
Go outside and get some air
Where no one can find you

Love leaves, now I’m just another single man
An expert at getting the right water level for ramyun
Occasionally talking to myself
Living with my lonely sofa
Before I sleep a TV drama or move
Even without you time ticks away
Just turn off the phone that you don’t call
Probably do this again tomorrow
Whatever, it’s over
Our love is dead already
Breakups are cold, a heart aching peace
And at times, it’s like a scary night’s long silence
Well that’s what a breakup is
You’re fine and then you have a lump in your throat
Hate with you all your heart, then hold back tears
When night falls, from a high building
A blinking red light
Like so I think of you and grow more tired
That’s what breakups are like
That’s what breakups are like
You’re fine and then you have a lump in your throat
That’s what breakups are like
That’s what breakups are like
Hate with you all your heart, then hold back tears

Go outside and get some air
Where no one can find you
So what if you look a little sad
It’s not only you that’s like that
Every now and then, lonely lonely lonely
Every now and then, lonely lonely lonely
Go outside and get some air
Where no one can find you

The next song I’d like to feature is the upbeat track called “SHIPAPA,” featuring Jung In and MIWOO. I’m not sure if I’m able to differentiate their voices but the funky sound is a great fit for their voices.

I’m glad that you can hear MIWOO on the track asking Gary what “shipapa” means. Because I have absolutely no idea! Lol. I can only guess that it’s another variation for “시발 (shi bal)” which means fuck. From what I can discern on the internet, it’s used in conjunction with loola. Together, I guess shipapa loola means “fuck whatever”? Anywhoo, if anyone has a more concrete definition, they are free to comment below. If I am right, it’s fitting for the lyrics as it’s all about dealing with whatever is thrown at you.

SHIPAPA (feat. 정인, MIWOO)

다 귀찮아 사람들의 말말말
내 요즘 관심사는 스트레스의 최소화
다 필요 없어 전부 이기적일뿐
돈이든 여자든
다 내 것 만 챙겨
왜 점술 매겨
쓸데없이 고만고만한
놈들의 분쟁만 생겨
누구 하나 잘 되면
물어 뜯기 바뻐
어차피 물어 뜯길 거
더 멀리 달려
얼마 전에 세워놓은 내 목표는 천억
무조건 번다에 새끼 손가락을 걸어
어차피 뻥카치는 세상 아님 말어
난 그냥 쿨 하게 살어
개 같은 바닥 전부 사재기하더만
몰랐어 나만
난 촌스러워서 그렇게는 안 살아
방송물 먹어도
방송국 똥꼰 안 빨아

스물 셋 세상 물정 모른 체
혼자 올라온 서울
난 눌러 앉은 채
십 년째 노래하며 느낀 건
너나 나나 그냥 똑같아

shipapa 룰라 오늘밖에 몰라
모든 것 은 이치대로 다 흘러가기 나름 오
shipapa 룰라 춤을 추는 품바
모든 것은 이치대로 다 흘러가기 나름 오

내 피의 반은 광대 이름은 강갤*
카페인에 밤새 찌들다
날새
죽기 전까지 난 잘돼
다시 맘 먹은 상태 개미 굴 속 300
난 잘 하든 못 하든 필대로 가
그래도 여자들은 끊임없이 내 침대로 와
또 수 틀리면 못 참아
그냥 뱉어 이 시밸롬아
이 치열한 세상
구걸하며 살기도 난 싫어
마치 허수아비
방울 소리만한 광기 같은 삶이
그나마 나를 춤 추게 만들어
난 뭘 위해 살아가는가
난 뭘 위해 아파하고 땀 흘리는가
모르겠어 그런 머리 아픈 수많은 질문들
난 그저 이 세상에 잠시 놀러왔을뿐

아차하면 시간은 흘러가
BOOM SHAKIT 붐 쉐킷 흔들어
정답 없는 질문은 묻지마
어떻게든 흘러가겠지

shipapa 룰라 오늘밖에 몰라
모든 것은 이치대로 다 흘러가기 나름 오
shipapa 룰라 춤을 추는 품바
모든 것은 이치대로 다 흘러가기 나름 오

지옥이든 천국이든 미친 듯이 살다
미련 없이 가는 게 내 삶의 주제
내 상처를 더 깊게 파는 이들까지도
다 이해하는 게
내가 짊어진 가장 큰 무게
뭐든 상관없어 웃게 될 거야 결국엔
모든걸 다 운에 맡길 순 없으니
난 매일 출근해
안방에서 옆방 작업실로
열정은 후끈해
지금 내 삶은 고통들이 만든 커다란 파도
좋든 나쁘든 다 품고 살아
그냥 철없이 웃고 살아
아가미가 찢어지도록
입을 크게 벌린 상어처럼 다 삼켜
시간 가면 아물어질 상처
그래 그 시간이란 박자에 맞춰
다시 1,2,3 춤!

shipapa 룰라 오늘밖에 몰라
모든 것은 이치대로 다 흘러가기 나름 오
shipapa 룰라 춤을 추는 품바
모든 것은 이치대로 다 흘러가기 나름 오

shipapa 룰라

SHIPAPA (feat. Jung In, MIWOO)

Annoyed of everyone’s words, words, words
My interests these days are minimizing stress
Don’t need it all, it’s all just being selfish
Whether it’s money or women,
just going to take what’s mine
Why are you taking score?
Unnecessarily being almost the same,
Causes people’s troubles
Whenever one does well,
They’re busy tearing him apart
If you’re gonna be torn apart anyhow
Run farther
Planned not too long ago, my goal is 100 billion won
Will pinky swear that I will absolutely earn it
Anyhow, if it’s not bluffing world then forget it
Just gonna live indifferently
A dog eat dog world is all for hoarders only
Was the only one who didn’t know
Unsophisticated, I don’t live like that
Even though I drink that TV water
Won’t wash that ass of the TV station

23 year old’s who don’t know the ways of the world
Came up to Seoul alone,
To where I was pressed to my seat
For 10 years, the thing I felt while singing
Whether it’s you or me, we’re the same

shipapa, loola, don’t know anything but today
It all depends on how the logic flows oh
shipapa, loola, a dancing Pumba
It all depends on how the logic flows oh

Half of my flesh is my show name Kang Gary*
With caffeine, worn out from staying up all night
The day passes
Before I day, I’ll succeed
With my mind made up, 300 in the ant hill
Whether I do well or badly, go with how I feel
And ceaselessly, the women come to my bed
Again I can’t stand if I lose count
Just spit it out, you motherfucker
This cutthroat world
Don’t want to live googling
Like a puppet
Like a ringing bell, a life of lunacy
Despite that, it makes me dance
What am I living for
What am I hurting and sweating for
Don’t know, those endless head-hurting questions
I’m just in this world to play for awhile

If I do a double take, time ticks away
BOOM SHAKIT, boom shake it, move
Don’t ask a question that has no answer
It’ll flow somehow

shipapa, loola, don’t know anything but today
It all depends on how the logic flows oh
shipapa, loola, a dancing Pumba
It all depends on how the logic flows oh

Whether it’s hell or heaven, live like crazy and
Leaving without any attachments is my life’s theme
Even those who pick at my scars
The thing I understand is
a great weight on my shoulders
Nothing matters, in the end you’ll laugh
Since I can’t leave everything to chance
I leave for work everyday
From the bedroom to the workroom next door
The passion is ignited
Now my life’s pain made a big wave
Whether it’s good or bad, will carry it all
Just live by immaturely laughing
Until my gills tear
Like a shark with its mouth wide open, swallow it all
As time passes, scars will heal
Yeah, match that ticking time
Again 1, 2, 3, dance!

shipapa, loola, don’t know anything but today
It all depends on how the logic flows oh
shipapa, loola, a dancing Pumba
It all depends on how the logic flows oh

shipapa, loola
