Jive Monkey Playlist: 7/7/17

Fridays can be especially hard in the summers.  Here’s hoping that these retro will make you forget that you’re stuck indoors.  If you’re outdoors, here’s hope that these tracks have you grooving to all the pleasures of summer!

I was first exposed to Heize when she competed on Unpretty Rapstar 2.  Although Heize was a pretty decent rapper, I’ll admit that I was rooting for Trudy.  However, since the end of that series, I found that Heize is an incredibly talented artist.  I think that’s the challenge of a show like Unpretty Rapstar as I think the focus on one thing that it neglects the multi-talented person like Heize.

I personally love Heize’s singing voice rather than being pulled in by her rap.  And her signature style seems to be that of a quirky rebel.  She certainly does things to her own drumbeat and I think that’s what endears her to fans.  The music video is quite violent if you think about the subject matter but the fact that the counterpart is a teddy bear, played by Shinee’s Onew, makes it quite amusing.  Surely, the lyrics reflect how sorry she is at not realizing she had a good thing when she had it.

“널 너무 모르고 (Really Didn’t Know You)” is medium-fast tempoed pop/jazz and R&B track.  It certainly has a loungey vibe that reminds me of early Humming Urban Stereo and Instant Romantic Floor. I realize that the mastermind behind HUS is Lee Jee Reen and also part of Instant Romantic Floor but I really do miss that indie pop-lounge sound that they had as HUS’ focus seems to be more electronic pop.

헤이즈(HEIZE) – 널 너무 모르고

널 너무 모르고

이제는 알아 말 안 해도
왜 이리도 쉬운 걸 몰랐을까
이 옷들을 고를 시간에
30분 더 널 안아줄걸
난 몰랐어 너의 맘의 크기도
옷 사이즈는 알았어도
널 웃음 짓게 하는 법도 까먹고
또 헛짚었어
차라리 내게 화냈다면
쌓이는 것 없이 말했다면
이렇게 네가 차갑지는 않았을걸
끝이 나고서야 깨닫는 걸

널 너무 모르고
네 맘도 모르고
네가 나에게서 멀어지고 있는 줄도
난 정말 모르고
네 선물 고르고
네가 원했던 건 이런 게 아니었던걸

I wanna be a good girl
받기만 하는 거 말고
주는 걸 하고 싶었고
이제 난 돈도 벌었는데
나를 보는 너의 심장은 굼떠
변명처럼 들리겠지만
부재중일 때도 나는 변하고 있던 거야
너를 위해
능력 있고 인정받는 girlfriend
효도만큼 절실한 꿈이었는데
떠나면 어떡해
난 너한테 준게 하나 없는데
너만 주고 감 어떡해
너한테 남은 내 흔적은 없을 텐데
너는 뭐를 보며 나를 기억해
나를 추억해
돌아봤음 해 너를 부를 때
네가 내게 준 맘을 전부 갚을 수 있게
행복을 줄 수 있게

널 너무 모르고
네 맘도 모르고
네가 나에게서 멀어지고 있는 줄도
난 정말 모르고
네 선물 고르고
네가 원했던 건 이런 게 아니었던걸

I can’t live without your love love
I can’t live without your love

널 너무 모르고
네 맘도 모르고
네가 나에게서 멀어지고 있는 줄도
난 정말 모르고
네 선물 고르고
네가 원했던 건 이런 게 아니었던걸

Really Didn’t Know You

Now, I know even if you don’t say it
Why didn’t I know it was this easy?
The time it takes to pick out my outfits
Should have spent 30 more minutes hugging you
Didn’t know how big your heart was
Even though I knew the size of your clothes
Forgot how to make your smile
Again, off base
If you had just gotten mad
Said it so that it didn’t build up
You wouldn’t have been this cold
Figured it out when we broke up

Really didn’t know you
Really didn’t know how you felt
That you were growing further apart from me
Really didn’t know
Selected your present
This wasn’t what you wanted

I wanna be a good girl
Didn’t want to always be on the receiving end
But I wanted to give
Now I’ve earned money
Your listless feelings as you look at me
It might sound like an excuse but
Even while you were away, I was changing
For you
Able and established, girlfriend
As much as I’m devoted to my parents, it was my earnest dream
How could you leave?
There’s isn’t one thing I’ve given you
What am I to do if only you give and then leave?
Won’t be any traces of me remaining with you
What do you see that’ll make you remember me
Have memories about me
Hope that you’ll return when I call you
So that I repay you for all that you gave to me
So that I could give you happiness

Really didn’t know you
Really didn’t know how you felt
That you were growing further apart from me
Really didn’t know
Selected your present
This wasn’t what you wanted

I can’t live without your love love
I can’t live without your love

Really didn’t know you
Really didn’t know how you felt
That you were growing further apart from me
Really didn’t know
Selected your present
This wasn’t what you wanted

It’s no secret that I’m quite partial to retro music and really I fell for this girl trio because of their harmony and their tracks that reflect fun and simple times. The Barberettes’ “Summer Love” is that easygoing summer track that colors everything with that vintage Instagram camera filter. This track is a medium-tempo disco pop track and it just makes me want to take thing slow and try to enjoy the leisureliness of summer.

바버렛츠(THE BARBERETTES) – Summer Love

Summer Love

(I need a summer love)

그 때를 기억하나요?
(don’t you remember, darling?)
유난히도 더웠던 날
(baby you got me singing’)

Woo woo ooh
우린 만났죠
Woo woo ooh
Oh yeah

당신이 내게 말할 때
(초코 아이스크림같이)
나의 맘은 녹아내리네
(고운 모래알같이)

Woo woo ooh
나를 간질여
Woo woo ooh
Oh yeah

반짝이는 물결들이
두 눈속에 빛나네
넌 나만의 태양의 선물

I need love, summer love
Du ru woo woo ooh
우리 둘의 사랑을
I need love, summer love
Du ru woo woo ooh
여름같은 그대와

(I need a summer love)

해변의 연인들은
(we are meant to be, darlin’)
내 앞을 지나가는데
(baby you got me singin’)

Woo woo ooh
너는 어디에
Woo woo ooh
Oh yeah

반짝이는 별빛들도
하늘 위에 빛나네
내곁에 널 데려다 줄래?

I need love, summer love
Du ru woo woo ooh

On an especially hot day

You melt my heart
(Like grain of fine sand)

You are sun’s gift to me

Lovers on the beach are

Pass in front of me

Even the sparkling starlight
Shine the heavens above
Will you bring yourself to me?

Du roo ooh ooh ooh
Our love is
I need love, summer love
Du roo ooh ooh ooh
Like summer, with you
and me, the two of us

(I need a summer love)

I really needed to put this track here because of The Barberettes’ love for Wanna One’s Kang Daniel (from Produce 101), which is what “Shoo” is about. The track is about fangirling and the desire, as unrealistic as it may be, to be the only fan recognized by your bias. It’s quite cute when you listen to it and honestly, weren’t we all rooting for Kang Daniel? As soon as he flahsed a smile with that toothy grin of his, I fell for him.
