Jive Monkey Playlist: 7/1/16

Now that I have had a chance to recover from KCON NY, back to our regularly scheduled programming.  This week, I’m featuring sweet songs by female artists who are expressing their love for significant other.  As much as traditional mindset is to have the guy be the first one to give things a go in a relationship, there’s a carpe diem sensibility hearing these girls take the lead.

It’s summer and I have been eagerly waiting for the new Sistar album but there was something about “해볼래 (Wanna Try?)” that caught my ear.  Sistar is known for their sexy and sassy pop style and that’s what I come to expect from their title tracks.  It’s not that this track doesn’t have those qualities but what I liked about it is that it takes the emotions of a new relationship to a deeper level.

The song seems to set the scene for a new couple going out on a date and the girl is the one who is confessing her feelings.  With its medium tempo beat, it’s quite a sweet song but I think the thing that warms my heart is the phrase “해볼래 (hae-bol-rae)”.  Even though the relationship may not work out, it’s the fact that she wants to give it a try for the person that she thinks is worth it.  This is the type of admission that’s the hardest, isn’t it?  And tell me, who is not going to be flattered by that?

Even today, tomorrow, just like right now

As I began listening to the new As One album, I’m not sure what I was expecting.  Although they produce R&B tracks, I mostly associate them with ballads as this duo was first introduced to me when they did the song “White Love Story” for The First Shop of Coffee Prince’s OST.  The innocence in their voices which is what initially attracted me to them was not lost since I heard that first song.  Upon listening to “Outlast,” each track instilled in me this feeling of awe.  It’s a great album as a whole with interesting collaborations that compliment As One’s Lee Min and Crystal’s pure voices.

However, I was immediately taken by the track, “Waiting For You”.  Simply put, the melody feels so familiar that I had to look and see if the song was actually a cover.  Perhaps it is, or perhaps it just has those familiar, feel-good elements.  The song seems to paint a picture of a woman waiting for her significant other for their date.  She’s dressed up and she’s excited but the important thing is this feeling of anticipation as she waits for him.  Despite the anticipating, there’s something very calming and sweet about the medium tempo beat and melody and it’s hard not to smile when you hear their voices.
