Jive Monkey Playlist: 5/5/17

Happy Cinco de Mayo!  Happy Children’s Day!  I’m not sure if Spring came quite late this year in the Northeast.  The weather has definitely been temperamental as the temperatures keep going up and down.  However, there have been enough sunny days this week, at least in the mornings, to allow me to order iced cappuccinos and affogatos.  Generally, the sunshine has been putting me in a good mood and has me replaying this week’s playlist song.

Listening to various songs on my phone in the middle of the night and trying to figure out what to post this week, I saw that a friend of my commented about Season 2 of Fantastic Duo.  Regardless of whether I’m liking the current season, it made think of Lee Moon Sae’s “봄바람 (Spring Breeze)” which he sang with Highlight a few weeks back.  I’ve been listening to that song on repeat just because it puts me in such a good mood.  The song itself originally came out on Lee Moon Sae’s 15th studio album, “NEW DIRECTION,” back in 2015.

Whether you’re older and remembering your first love from way back when or whether you’re young and discovering your first love now, I think this song is so endearing that it has a broad reach beyond generations.  The song originally featured Naul from Brown Eyed Soul but when I heard the song again on Fantastic Duo, I think Highlight breathed new life into this upbeat love song.  I’ve translated both versions below as the lyrics are slightly different.  Highlight’s version includes a rap by Yong Jun Hyung while Naul’s version includes a bridge.

이문세 – 봄바람 (feat. 나얼)

봄바람 (feat. 나얼)

라일락 꽃 거리마다 가득 코끝이 아려와
햇살 같은 연인들의 미소 눈부신 날이야

그래 햇살 탓일까
아지랑이 피는 하늘
잠시 감은 눈에
나도 몰래 생각이나

봄바람처럼 살랑
날 꽃잎처럼 흔들던 사람
꿈처럼 지난날들
이제 다시 돌아갈 수 없지만
봄바람처럼 살랑
내 가슴을 또 흔드는 사람
언제나 나에게 그대는 봄이야

척 봐도 시작하는 저들 어쩐지
웃음 나
그때 우린 저들 같았을까 떠올려 보지만

그래 마냥 좋았어 다시
내겐 없을 만큼
허나 지나버린 얘기인데 웃을 뿐이야

봄바람처럼 살랑 날
꽃잎처럼 흔들던 사람
꿈처럼 지난날들
이제 다시 돌아갈 수 없지만
봄바람처럼 살랑
내 가슴을 또 흔드는 사람
언제나 나에게 그대는 봄이야

다시 돌아오는 계절처럼 나를 찾아오는 그대
영원 할 것 같던
그 순간이 어제 같은데

봄바람처럼 살랑
날 꽃잎처럼 흔들던 사람
꿈처럼 지난 날들
이제 다시 돌아갈 수 없지만
봄바람처럼 살랑
또 하루하루 멀어지지만
어느새 또다시 눈부신 봄이야

봄바람처럼 살랑
또 하루하루 멀어지지만
어느새 또다시 눈부신 봄이야

Spring Breeze (feat. Naul)

All the streets filled with lilacs, itching the tip of my nose
The smile of lovers like the sunshine, it’s a radiant day

Yeah, is it sunshine that’s the reason?
The sky billowing with clouds
With my eyes closed for a bit,
I also secretly think of it

Like the spring breeze, gently
The person who swayed me like the flower petals
Like a dream, the past days
Is something I can’t return to now but
Like the spring breeze, gently
The person who again swayed my heart
She will always be Spring to me

Even with one look, how it starts for those people
Makes me smile
Try to think if we were like them back then

Yeah, it was all great,
as much as if won’t be like that again
it’s a thing of the past but I can only smile

Like the spring breeze, gently
The person who swayed me like the flower petals
Like a dream, the past days
Is something I can’t return to now but
Like the spring breeze, gently
The person who again swayed my heart
She will always be Spring to me

Like the returning season, you find me again
Like it’ll last forever,
that moment felt like it was yesterday

Like the spring breeze, gently
The person who swayed me like the flower petals
Like a dream, the past days
Is something I can’t return to now but
Like the spring breeze, gently
Again, day by day it gets farther away but
Already, it’s a radiant Spring again

Like the spring breeze, gently
Again, day by day it gets farther away but
Already, it’s a radiant Spring again

이문세, 하이라이트(Highlight) – 봄바람

Rap)
잊혀 질 때면 찾아와
코끝을 간지럽히는
그대는 때론 눈물 되어 흐르기도 하지만
추억은 여전히 날 따스하게 감싸 안아
다음 계절을 또 기다리죠 Oh, Oh

봄바람 불어오면
그대 내게 온 줄 알겠소
이제 내 걱정은 하지 마오
봄바람 불어오면
나는 작은 미소 짓겠소
그댄 마음 편히 스쳐가오

봄바람처럼 살랑

Rap)
Just as I’m about to forget it, it finds me
Tickling the tip of my nose
Sometimes, you are in tears but
You are still as ever, embrace me warmly
I will wait for you again next season, Oh, Oh

With the blowing Spring wind,
I’ll know that you’ve come to me
Now don’t worry about me
With the blowing Spring wind,
I will have a small smile
Feel at ease and brush past

Like the spring breeze, gently
The person who swayed me like the flower petals
Like a dream, the past days
Is something I can’t return to now but
Like the spring breeze, gently
Again, day by day it gets farther away but
Already, it’s a radiant Spring again

With the blowing Spring wind,
I’ll know that you’ve come to me
Now don’t worry about me
With the blowing Spring wind,
I will have a small smile
Feel at ease and brush past

Like the spring breeze, gently
Again, day by day it gets farther away but
Already, it’s a radiant Spring again
