Jive Monkey Playlist: 12/16/16

My 1,000th post!  And how poetic is it that it falls on my last playlist post for the year?  During this time of year, we typically get all the Christmas albums and I usually look forward to the collaborative tracks from the various music labels.  It’s usually sounds the same from year to year and yet it’s that time of year when you don’t mind cheesy love songs centered on a Christmas theme.  In fact, it just makes you want cuddle up with someone you love.

I always look forward to the Starship Entertainment’s Christmas track.  I’m surprised that this year they decided to just go with their male artists but I’m not complaining.

At times, it looks like Mad Clown is bored in the music video as the other singers harmonize with each other.  It’s a sweet love song and I don’t mind be crooned to by these cuties.  Isn’t that what the holidays are all about?

정기고(Junggigo) , 매드 클라운(Mad Clown) , 유승우 , 브라더수(BrotherSu) , 현성 , 기현 – 누가 그래 (Love Wishes)

누가 그래 (Love Wishes)

솔직히 말해볼래
평소같지 않게 너 왜 그래

오늘따라
왠지 쑥스럽고 수줍은 니가
어색해

입술은 자꾸 깨물고
괜히 앞머리를 만지고
분명히 무슨 일이 있는걸

눈은 왜 피하는건데..
내가 뭐 잘못했니
무슨 말 좀 해봐

누가 그래
내가 너를 좋아한다고
대체 누가 그렇게 고마운 말을 해

누군지 모르지만
티 안내려 노력했는데
대체 어떻게 내 맘 알았대

WHO(누누누가 그래)
WHO(누가 그래)

너 때문에
내가 잠도 못잔다고

WHO 누가 그래

살짝 좀 티를 내볼까
애태우며 별이나 셀까
웃겨 얼마전만해도
넌 내게 꿈이었는데
지금은 온통
니 생각에 생각에 생각
하지만 넌 절대 모르지 내 맘
젠장 참 눈치도 없어
잡아줘 내 손을 덥썩

무슨 일이 있었는지
무슨 말을 들었는지
그냥 솔직하게 다 말해줘

볼은 왜 빨개지는데
내가 뭐 실수했니
무슨 말 좀 해봐

누가 그래
내가 너를 좋아한다고
대체 누가 그렇게 고마운 말을 해

누군지 모르지만
티 안내려 노력했는데
대체 어떻게 내 맘 알았대

사람들 모두 아는데
너만 내 맘을 모르는데
대체 난 어떡해

넌 날 어떻게 생각해
난 니가 정말 궁금해
이젠 솔직히 얘기해줄래

누가 그래
내가 오늘 고백한다고
대체 누가 그렇게 고마운 말을 해

누군지 모르지만
혹시 그런 얘기 또 하면
절대 가만둔다고 전해줘

WHO(누누누가 그래)
WHO(누가 그래)

혹시 너도
나와 같은 맘이라면
더이상 고민말고 내게 와

Who Says (Love Wishes)

Honestly, I want to tell you
Not like usual self, why are you like that?

Today of all days
Somehow the shy and bashful you
Is awkward

You keep biting your lip
Touching your bangs for no reason
Something is definitely up

Why are you avoiding my eyes?
What did I do wrong?
Please say something

Who says?
Who said that I liked you
Who on earth said those thankful words?

Don’t know who it is
Tried to not show it
How on earth did they find out how I feel?

WHO (Wh-wh-wh-who says?)
WHO (Who says?)

Because of you
I can’t even sleep

WHO who says?

Shall I make it a bit obvious?
Nervously, should I count the stars?
Funny enough, not too long ago,
you were just a dream
Now, I’m totally filled with
thoughts of thoughts of thought of you
But you’ll never know how I feel
Dammit, you’re slow to catch on
Please grab my hand

What happened
What did you hear
Just tell me honestly

Why are you cheeks getting red?
Did I do something wrong?
Please say something

Who says?
Who said that I liked you
Who on earth said those thankful words?

Don’t know who it is
Tried to not show it
How on earth did they find out how I feel?

Everybody knows about it
Only you don’t know how I feel
What on earth am I supposed to do?

How do you feel about me?
I’m curious about how you feel
Will you now tell me honestly?

Who says?
That I’m going to confess today
Who on earth said those thankful words

Don’t know who it is
If they say that again
Tell them I won’t leave them alone

WHO (wh-wh-wh-who says?)
WHO (who says?)

By any chance, are you also
feeling the same way I am
Don’t worry anymore and come to me

As for Jellyfish Entertainment, they recently released a single titled, “니가 내려와 (You Come Down)”.  The track features Seo In Guk, VIXX, gugudan, Park Yoon Ha, Park Jung Ah, Kim Kyu Sun, Kim Ye Won and Ji Yul.  The track uses the metaphor of snow as a reminder of a couple that used to be together.  The song isn’t a breakup song but rather it’s about treasuring fond memories you had with a loved one.  After all, isn’t that what Christmas is all about?

The thing that’s different about Christmas in Korea is that the holiday is often reserved for couples.  There are a lot of couple related events.  It is also said that couple who see the winter’s first snow together stay together.  It might sound like a weird superstition but nonetheless it’s a sweet one.  And so it sounds fitting that desiring to see your significant other is compared to a beautiful wintry snowfall.

Seo In Guk, VIXX, gugudan, Park Yoon Ha, Park Jung Ha, Kim Kyu Sun, Kim Ye Won, Ji Yul – 니가 내려와 (You Come Down)

서인국 , 빅스(VIXX) , 구구단(gugudan) , 박윤하 , 박정아 , 김규선 , 김예원 , 지율 – 니가 내려와

니가 내려와

우리 함께했던 그날이 다가와
자연스레 니 기억도 불어와
널 품에 안고 걷던 가슴은 아직도
니가 올 거라 기대 하나 봐
자꾸 뛰어 막
사랑했던 만큼 더

부쩍 차가워진 바람에
내 걱정이 많이 됐는지
불쑥 예고 없이 밤새 찾아와
소복이 날 감싸는 너

사랑하면 Somewhere Somewhere
니가 나타나
생각하면 Falling Falling
니가 내려와 나를 감싸줘
보이지 않아도 우릴 이어준 건
우리가 나눈 기억
잘 지내겠지, 너도 날 보러 와
저 눈처럼

곱게 쌓인 눈밭,
나란한 발자국
니 이름과 내 이름을 새기고
이젠 다 녹아버린 옛이야기지만
오늘 밤처럼 그리운 날엔
니가 내려 막
기다렸던 만큼 더

사랑하면 Somewhere Somewhere
니가 나타나
생각하면 Falling Falling
니가 내려와 나를 감싸줘
보이지 않아도 우릴 이어준 건
우리가 나눈 기억
잘 지내겠지, 너도 날 보러 와

야 오늘은 답이 없어
네 생각 날 수밖에 없어
크리스마스니까 뭐 이길 수 없지
성탄절 소원은 제설기 설치
아 이래도 되나 너의 연락
기다려도 되나 싶어

기다림조차
난 널 사랑하는 시간인 걸

간절하면 Someday Someday
다시 만나고
기억하면 Calling Calling
서로를 영원히 부를 거야

세상 어딜 가도 두렵지 않은 건
우리만 아는 소원
잘 지내야 해, 다시 볼 때까지

겨울이 오면 내게 돌아와 줘
저 눈처럼

You Come Down

The day we shared together is drawing near
Thoughts of you naturally comes calling
Embracing as we walked, my heart still
Hopes that you’ll come
It keeps beating fast
As much as I loved you, even faster

The wind’s gotten much colder
Whether you worried about me a lot
Suddenly without warning, you find me at night
Collectively, you cover me

When you’re in love, Somewhere Somewhere,
You appear
When you’re in love, Falling Falling,
You fall down, you cover me
Though you don’t see it, it’s connected us
The memories we’ve shared
Must be doing well right? You should come see me too
Like the snow

Beautifully accumulated snow field,
Footsteps in a line
Engrave your name and my name
Even if it’s an old tale that’s all melted now
Like tonight, on a day you’re longing for
You just come down
More than I’ve waited for

When you’re in love, Somewhere Somewhere,
You appear
When you’re in love, Falling Falling,
You fall down, you cover me
Though you don’t see it, it’s connected us
The memories we’ve shared
Must be doing well right? You should come see me too

Hey, there’s no answers today
Can’t help thinking of you
Because it’s Christmas, I can’t win
My Christmas wish, installing a snowplow
Ah, should I be doing this? Your call
Should I be waiting for it?

Even the wait
Is time spent loving you

When you’re earnest, Someday Someday,
You meet again
If you remember, Calling Calling,
You’ll call each other forever

No matter where you go in this world, I’m not afraid
It’s a wish that only we know
Be well, until I see you again

When winter comes, please come back to me
Like the snow
