Music Monday

Gee Gee Gee Gee Baby Baby Baby

So hopefully many of you listen to music because its a pretty awesome and powerful thing. But how many of you listen to music in a different language? From a different country? Well one type of music that has hit America really hard is Korean pop music, or Kpop. Now before you get out your pitch forks, you should really try it. I really only listen to one group from Korea and that’s Girls’ Generation.

Girls GenerationGirls’s Gen. is a group of 9 young ladies (from left to right TaeyeonHyoyeonSeohyunSooyoung,YoonaJessicaTiffanySunny and Yuri) and they are one of the largest musical groups in the world. They have around Asia and have come over to the US for numerous interviews and guest appearances, as well as to preform during their world tour. They have won many awards, including one that is pretty amazing and that’s video of the year for Youtube. With their song “I Got A Boy” reaching over 80 million views, it was a well deserved award.

 

 

Girl’s Genration first made its way to America with their song Gee in 2009. Now they have fans all around the world and are a well loved and respected group. Now with their recent uprising with I Got A Boy and their newest song Mr.Mr. they have once again lit the flame in America for Kpopp

When listening to Kpop music, at least i have no idea what they’re saying, and to a point that can be better. When you don’t know what they’re saying, it leaves it open to interpenetration, plus is sounds better because you just automatically assume everything is better in a different language. At the very least what’s the harm in trying something new right? Here are some more songs by them and other groups. By the way, their music videos are ten times better than America’s and will always make you laugh (whether they’re trying to or not).

“Someone Else”

[Chorus]
If you’re looking for love
Know that love don’t live here anymore
He left with my heart
They both walked through that door without me
If you’re trying to find pity well, you need to look somewhere else
‘Cause I surely can’t help you
I’m hurting myself
I’ve turned into someone else
[Verse 1]
I used to believe love conquered all
‘Cause that’s what I’ve seen in movies
Come to find out it’s not like that at all
You see real life’s much different
[Pre-Chorus]
I don’t wanna see you go
I only wanna see you smile
It hurts so much just thinking of
Felt like this for awhile
I can’t stand to see us fail
We cried, we lied
Cannot pretend to take us back
To what we had, to make us feel alive again
Hold me close, don’t let me go, I hope
Tell me now is not the end
[Chorus]
If you’re looking for love
Know that love don’t live here anymore
He left with my heart
They both walked through that door without me
If you’re trying to find pity well, you need to look somewhere else
‘Cause I surely can’t help you
I’m hurting myself
I’ve turned into someone elseI’ve turned into someone else[Verse 2]
I used to believe love conquers all
‘Cause that’s what I felt when you held me
I thought you’d catch me if I fall
And fill me up when I’m empty[Pre-Chorus]
I don’t wanna see you go
I only wanna see you smile
It hurts so much just thinking of
Felt like this for awhile

I can’t stand to see us fail
We cried, we lied
Cannot pretend to take us back
To what we had, to make us feel alive again
Hold me close, don’t let me go, I hope
Tell me now is not the end

[Chorus]
If you’re looking for love
Know that love don’t live here anymore
He left with my heart
They both walked through that door without me
If you’re trying to find pity well, you need to look somewhere else
‘Cause I surely can’t help you
I’m hurting myself
I’ve turned into someone else

[Bridge:]
[2x]
Love is patient
Love is selfless
Love is hopeful
Love is kind
Love is jealous
Love is selfish
Love is helpless
Love is blind

Love is patient
Love is selfless
Love is hopeful
Love is kind
Love is jealous
Love is selfish
Love is hopeless
Love is blind

Yeah, yeah
Ooh, yeah
I’ve turned into someone else

On Miley Cyrus’ new album, Bangerz, this is her longest song, clocking in at 4 minutes and 49 seconds. In the past I’ve been required to write short stories and have them be in an exact amount, the hardest part of this is to be able to get across the message in such a small amount of words. I feel like this is what makes songs great. They are usually no longer than 3–5 minutes and they can get stuck in your head and if they do mean something to you, they can help you get through whatever it is you’re dealing with. Of course, all songs are open to their own interpretation, but the obvious message in this song is after going through the relationship, Miley has changed into “someone else” and although is sad about the fact things are over, she knows she’s become stronger now and can stand her own ground. Tell me what you think about this song, and leave your favorite song in the comments

Its a me! Monday.

And with another week gone, a new one comes with all the fun and drama that comes with it. Being a teenager has its moments but in reality it isn’t the most fun time in life. But hey! I still have so many years ahead of me, not to say I should slack off or wait ’till then to get something accomplished or have something to call mine, but it really is a nice reminder that today is just another Monday, in another week, that will be followed by many more. For now though, school, family, friends, and music are pretty much the only things on my mind. School takes up most of my time (unfortunately), but at least its a great excuse to go and see my friends and maybe even learn something, like how to blog. I really need to learn how to do that…..

But even with all this homework I get everyday, for some reason I always find myself on Netflix, or more usually, listening to my spotify playlist. For those who don’t know, Spotify is a music streaming service that let’s you pick the music you want to listen to, recommends more music, and allows you to follow your friends and see the music they’re listening too. I find myself laying down, a mild headache coming on from the days drama, and just listening, letting all of it wash away with each lyric. I’m not sure where i’d be without it. Ariana Grande’s new album Your’s Truly has been on replay, its really relatable even though i’ve always been single(poor me). To anyone reading this, find that one artist, album, or even that one song, that just screams you, close your eyes, and enter that bubble every once in a while to keep yourself going when you need it.

Music definitely soothes me, but my friends (when they aren’t being rude) do the trick ten times better. Always be there for friends, always. When you need someone they’ll come and help you and its amazing how close people can become from a bad thing. Of course, the good experiences you share are probably more fun, so i’m telling you right now, go make a plan with your best friend and watch a new movie coming out, go to Disneyland, GO to the park for God’s sake do something!!! Show you appreciate them and make the most out of today, because tomorrow’s a new day, and you never know what’s coming. And don’t be Spongebob, start now :D!!

Life.

Life.
