Jive Monkey Playlist: 10/14/16

In the Fall, I noticed that I tend to listen to a lot of ballads and music that generally has a slower tempo.  I swear I’m not depressed or anything but there’s something about the cooler weather or approaching the end of the year that makes you more reflective.  However today, I’m flipping the script as the cooler temps don’t stop me from listening to upbeat music.

I really like Hwang Chi Yeol as I think he’s a great singer that I just happened to discover through his various variety show appearances.  In fact he’s one of the many artists that I want to love and promote.  Perhaps writers and composers aren’t writing music for him that strike a perfect chord that makes it an instant hit.

I think that’s why I was so pleasantly surprised by this track as it’s such a cute song that showcases his personality, not only his singing talent.  I think what I find even more endearing are the cartoon versions of Hwang Chi Yeol, GFriend’s Eun Ha and Geeks’ Lil Boi.

The song depicts that effervescent feeling of falling in love and it has the perfect blend of sweetness and youthful exhuberance.  When it comes to the music video, even though I sometimes get bored of music videos where it’s just the artists singing in the booth, I like that they’ve added cute graphics of the lyrics appearing as messages being sent in a mobile chatroom complete with emoticons.

황치열 , 은하 – 반딧불이 (Firefly) (feat. 릴보이 Of 긱스)

반딧불이 (Firefly) (feat. 릴보이 Of 긱스)

넌 말했지 너의 마음이 흔들리고 있다고
No guarantees
우리 가는 길엔 올지 몰라 파도
But 앞으로가 어떻든 간에
너와 함께하길 나는 간절히 원해
So let’s get this over with fireflies

아득하지 아직까진
난 이제 준비가 됐단 말야
아른거림 두근거림
잡히듯 잡히지 않는 이 느낌
아끼지 말고 있는 힘껏 소리질러
서로가 있는 이 공간이 떨리도록
Jump it up
Break it up
멈추지마 표현할 수 없는 두근거림 속에
Up to the sky어디로
흘러갈지 모를 마치 우리 같은 구름
Fly내게로 와주면 돼

빛나는 불빛을 실어 위로 위로
더 높은 곳을 향해서 뛰어 위로
반짝이는 땀방울도 튀어 위로
내 손을 잡은 너 날아오르며
밝게 빛나는 Firefly

수만 가지 생각들이
내 안을 스쳐가고 있는 걸
불이 꺼진 어둠 속에 너와 나
단둘이 있는 이 느낌
Up to the sky 드디어
피어날 거 같아
왠지 알 거 같아 이젠
You light me up
이대로 날

빛나는 불빛을 실어 위로 위로
더 높은 곳을 향해서 뛰어 위로
반짝이는 땀방울도 튀어 위로
내 손을 잡은 너 날아오르며
밝게 빛나는 Firefly

넌 아무나와 함께 할 수 없어 Baby
내 욕심일지 모르지만 Want u badly
See maybe
너의 옆에 내가 없다면 어떻게
될지도 몰라 그러니까 내 손을 잡고서

ASAP
하늘 위를 걷지
Let’s get faded
Let’s get faded
Only u can set me free

빛나는 불빛을 실어 위로 위로
더 높은 곳을 향해서 뛰어 위로
반짝이는 땀방울도 튀어 위로
내 손을 잡은 너 날아오르며

빛나는 불빛을 실어 위로 위로
더 높은 곳을 향해서 뛰어 위로
반짝이는 땀방울도 튀어 위로
내 손을 잡은 너 날아오르며
밝게 빛나는 Firefly

Firefly (feat. Lil Boi Of Geeks)

You said it, that your heart is wavering
No guarantees
The road we’re heading, don’t know if the wave will hit
But (but) whatever happens, move forward
I honestly want to share it with you
So let’s get this over with fireflies

For now, it’s still faraway
I’m telling you that I’m ready now
Glimmering, pounding
The feeling that you may or may not catch it
Don’t hold back and shout with all your strength
So that the space we’re in quakes
Jump it up
Break it up
Don’t stop, within the unexplainable pounding
Up to the sky, where
You don’t know where it’ll fall, like a cloud like us
Fly, to me, you can come to me

Carrying the shining light, above, above
Aiming for a higher place, jump, above
Sparkling sweat spatters above
Holding my head, when you fly to me
Shining brightly, Firefly

Tens of thousands of thoughts
Like you are brushing past inside me
In the dark with the lights off, you and I
This feeling that we are alone
Up to the sky, finally
Like it’s about to come out,
somehow I think I know now
You light me up
Like this, I’m

Carrying the shining light, above, above
Aiming for a higher place, jump, above
Sparkling sweat spatters above
Holding my head, when you fly to me
Shining brightly, Firefly

You can’t be together with just anyone, Baby
I don’t know if it’s my selfishness, Want u badly
See maybe
What will you do if I’m not next to you?
Don’t know if it’ll happen, so hold my hand and

ASAP
Let’s walk the heavens above
Let’s get faded
Let’s get faded
Only u can set me free

Carrying the shining light, above, above
Aiming for a higher place, jump, above
Sparkling sweat spatters above
Holding my head, when you fly to me

Carrying the shining light, above, above
Aiming for a higher place, jump, above
Sparkling sweat spatters above
Holding my head, when you fly to me
Shining brightly, Firefly

  1. Hi, love your article, thanks. I love Hwang Chi Yeul as he’s an amazing singer, dancer and variety show performer. But what makes him stand out for me is his personality – respectful, polite and funny with it 🙂 Love “Firefly” and your take on it – for me, it’s catchy and upbeat. Please do continue to write and promote HCY. Thanks so much!
