[Music Monday] clauds is climbing into her hole.

Because we all need a earworm to kickstart the week! Plus, Monday is the only day in the week that starts with M. I’ll try to post non-Kpop songs occasionally :P

Think the introvert-side of me is taking control again. Plus, April/May is always a ‘down’ period for me ever since that incident. So, I find myself yearning for some quiet time. Not necessarily alone. Just quiet, simple company. Like with the usual suspect on Saturday. Simple conversations (:

Think you will find me eating by the bay by myself more often this coming 2 weeks.

Anyways, because of this, I am not listening to alot of songs. Doesn’t help that Mediacorp Radio updated their web radio such that it is not compatible with my work PC anymore.

But my current earworm is SNSD’s Mr. Mr. Really hoping that Celine Jessandra will open more classes for it. Can’t make it to the classes this round cos of classes. Complicated, yo.

Here’s the performance of the song in one of my favorite outfit. Always amazed with how they won’t “走光” dancing in dresses!

Also, I am quite hooked to the game 2048. My score sucks. But therapeutic to move the tiles around and see the number going up.

2048

2048

That’s it this week. Hopefully I’ll be back next week with a proper entry. Fighting!

[Music Monday] Mr. Mr by Girls’ Generation

Because we all need a earworm to kickstart the week! Plus, Monday is the only day in the week that starts with M. I’ll try to post non-Kpop songs occasionally :P

No surprise that I will be writing about this song this week huh? (:

The album was mistakenly released on iTunes for a short while last Sunday so the album was premature-ly released the following day. Pretty sure that was not in SM Entertainment’s plan ;p But yes, the album came out before the MV. Without an MV, I really cant fully enjoy the song (yes, I’m weird like that).

So on Friday on my way to meet Jie En for dinner, I (finally) had time to scroll through my Facebook and I saw –

금일 밤 10시, 소녀시대 ‘Mr.Mr.’의 뮤직비디오가 공개 될 예정입니다!

소녀시대(Girls’ Generation)‘s new music video, ‘Mr.Mr.’ will be released at 10 pm (KST) today. Stay tuned!

[from FACEBOOK GIRLS’ GENERATION STAFF]

*cough* I almost went, “아싸!” in the train but of course I didn’t. I smiled, posted on Facebook and sent a screenshot to the Korean classmates (: The actual MV was actually delayed by an hour. But ahwell!

The concept for this mini-album is not too out there *phew* When “I Got A Boy” came out, the concept was just out of this world and not in a good way! But for “Mr. Mr”, there’s 4 look – the nurses, the reggae (?), the retro black/white dress and the (what I like to call) oppa look. Loved it! (:

The song though reminds me a little of Galaxy Supernova/T.O.P on the first listen (if there’s such a term). Not that it’s a bad thing I guess? Anyways, after listening to it a few more times, it gets better. It’s catchy though. I woke up one morning singing, “My Mi, Mi, Mister…” in my head -.- With that said, I happen to have CNBlue’s Can’t Stop in my head as well. The 2 songs have ‘mated’ and produced a remix T_T

The dance? Can’t see much of it in the MV but I think the signature move is the part where they mimic the action of putting on the cuff links. Really looking forward to the comeback performance! The dance break should be awesome with the awesome beat and….all the girls are dancing not just Hyoyeon! Woots!

Just in case you are interested, the song is about a girl asking the guy she likes to be more aggressive, to take the first move to chase her. About her frustration with his lack of actions. So far, no favorite part to the song yet. Though I find it funny when Jessica sings, “You bad bad bad bad You so bad.” It’s so…Singlish! ;p

The rest of the album sounds is pretty okay too. I think there’s not as much ‘harmonization’ as their previous albums? I keep hearing the stronger vocals and less of them singing together. Kind of missed that. But I have to say there are some catchy catchy tunes. Like “Goodbye”. I don’t know why but it got stuck and I keep going, “안녕 Really Really Good Goodbye…” SAVE ME!  And there’s “Wait a Minute” too. OMG (yes, pun intended. it’s actually part of the song).

백허그 (Backhug) is quite good. The harmonization, less of the fancy music stuff and just the girls singing. I hear Yuri’s and Hyoyeon’s voice too!

Overall, I will give this album a 3.5/5 stars (: Can I please say that I am so happy that Hyoyeon has more parts now? And how proud I am to see her standing right smack in the middle with my Yoong 😀

to quote a fan’s comment, “the generation of hyoyeon has arrived!”

Righty! That’s all this week. Can’t wait for the comeback performance (have I said that?)!
