Seungri “Gotta Talk To You” – Kpop Music Monday

September 3, 2013

You hear that Martina? It’s Gotta Talk to You, not IIIII Gotta Talk to You. That’s ok. Martina’s bad with names. She still calls Quinoa “Qwynona Rider” and Carcoal “charcoil”. That’s not the point. Point is: Seungri’s song is awesome. Check it out if you haven’t already:

You know what? I realized that there’s a bit of a flaw in the 30 second showdown, in that, we’re both honorable people, and we’ll stop talking when the 30 seconds is up, even if we’re in the middle of a sentence. I ended up with saying that GD and CL try too hard, but didn’t get the chance to say “try to hard to make big, booming songs and videos.” Subtle difference, but an important one. I know Kpop became popular, among other reasons, for its explosive colors and sounds and just being a sensory overload. But, after a while, you get used to it all, you know? Explosions used to be cool in movies. Now every freaking movie has explosions and you’re like “meh.” Because you’ve seen it all. After a while, you want something with more subtlety, which is why I like this song so much.

Seungri’s voice is very faint here. He doesn’t have big booming vocals like IIIII LOOOST MY PAAAAANTS where he bellows at the top of his lungs. Bellowing, though effective at times, isn’t always effective. I used to hate Leonardo Dicaprio, because, whenever he had a movie that he cried in, he’s scream and froth, very powerfully, granted, but a bit redundantly. I like seeing quiet crying. Micro-expressions are more gratifying. A quiver of the lip. A darting of the eyes. Not hooting and hollering.

The point of all this is that Kpop is very hoot and hollery, and a lot of times it’s fun for that, but sometimes I want something more reserved, and I think Seungri totally freaking nailed it with this song. I’m not fond of the dubstep breakdown at the end. It’s good on its own, but I didn’t want to wait 15 seconds for it to build in. I AIN’T GOT TIME FOR THAT! The world ain’t got time for that. Attention spans are dwiiiiindling to nothing. Our Music Mondays are shorter because we noticed that people don’t watch long Music Mondays (sure, some people do, but the majority doesn’t). Keep it short and sweet.

I just noticed that this blog post seems a bit, umm, higgildy piggildy? We’re just excited right now. We had fun filming this Music Monday. And we’re getting all ready for our AUSTRALIA TRIP!!! HOLY SMOKES! We’re flying out Wednesday night, and today we were packing up all of the Australian Nasty shirts, as well as some extra shirts and hats in case people want them while we’re there, and it’s 1:34AM right now and we’re all still totally pumped and energized and I don’t even wanna sleep tonight I’m just gonna run around in circles.

Ok…breathe. Calm down. Back to the showdown, time to vote!

If you want to see us be a bit more silly and ridiculous, check out the bloopers below.

  2. “Carcoal”, are we going back in 4-D to running cars on coal? LMFAO! (not that they ever did run on coal, just trains….)

    • Yes! For some reason I didn’t hear that part the first time I watched it (distracted?) – it was soooooo awesome!

  4. I totally loved this song, like Seungri said maybe in his first album he wasn’t totally himself, it was more like trying to be more mature, but in here, he nailed it! and I love that, he’s totally my bias in BB, anyway, I hope they can do a live performance of GG be. Thanks for this music Monday!

  8. :O with the chorus I heard in the verry beginning something like I’m a mosselman. (mosselman is the dutch word for mussel man. And then I where not thinking about his song anymore but started to think of an other song that’s singing mosselman >_< So yeah suddenly I got all like ohw old song let's search for that nice hardcore song from my childhood.

    I'm talking about this song:

    But other then that I love the song a lot.

  9. omg that beatboxing with the timer in the bloopers…too good XD
    also dang if it weren’t for that dubstep breakdown in the middle of gttu I would have voted for it T_T

  10. The last part is a taste of the remixed version that only comes with the pysical cd. The song itself is without that dubsteb beat. So buy the song and you will avoid it^^

  11. I would agree with that if not for GD’s Coup d’etat, which brings a bit of that older G-Dragon; more mature and still bizzare, but more in a classy way.

    But apart from that, Seungri does not get enough credit, it couldn’t be more true. I honestly think Gotta Talk to U and Strong Baby are two of the best songs YG produced. Come on, Strong Baby is just soooooooooo catchy, and you could listen to it constantly!

    • Now if only we could get an MV for “Let’s Talk About Love” featuring GD and Taeyang, my life would be complete.

  12. Yes! Thank you Martina for doing an accurate representation of what girls ACTUALLY do when we are home alone. Kpop mvs are so misleading on this that it leads to people to think girls like being all dolled up and do cute things at home. P.S. the bra thing is totally true!!

  17. I understand that statistically more people will watch the KMM videos if they’re a bit shorter, but also, I think that most of the long-term Nasties, like me, prefer to see more content.

    I think that a good way to please everybody would be to have like an extra video, kind of like the bloopers video, but just a bonus footage video or something, with five minutes or so of the little rants and whatnot that you guys don’t want to put in the final video. Only if you guys have time, of course. But I think it would be a fun idea :3

  19. First I was like “oh… no Teen Top” but then I was like “Wait a second I wanted this to be reviewed too!”. Just do what you like guys and keep making those great reviews. But still I think Teen Top’s latest mv is pure gold, PURE GOLD I TELL YOU!

  23. Fantastic KMM guise! All the traditional elements and a skit, just smokin’! Martina, I love your ‘what girls really do’ bit, I think you could have pushed it a little further but it was really great. Did you guys switch the aspect ratio or something? Suddenly you both look much MUCH thinner, especially the date at the door scene. Maybe it was intense working out for the last 3 weeks, but it seems more of a mechanical change to me. I am very jealous of your butt Martina, you go girl!

    Yes, all mature kpop videos will be shadowy from now on because nothing actually happens in them so it’s the mystery that makes them sexy.

    Those moustache bloopers were hilarious Simon, I don’t know how you kept on because I know you hate the “lip tickles” – LOL! No one but no one looks good in that pencil moustache with one exception – Magnus Scheving as Sportacus, but then, perhaps that’s also because I’m French Canadian, and French Canadians back in the day sport that look more than most.

    • I seriously loved You Hoooo (however many o’s). It’s really catchy and I want him to use it as a followup or something.

      • I totally get what you mean when you said Seungri’s album is fun! I mean, they were just so pleasant to listen to. GD’s album I still have to listen to more to see if I really do like everything, but on first listen, I like them quite a bit. ROD and Black are so pretty, but I understand what you mean by dramatic. The MV was TOTALLY dramatic. BB fooling around is the best.

        • I do like the album, but it’s not as FUN to listen to as Seungri’s is. R.O.D. is great though, and so is Who You?. It’s just not the fun, bubbly sound that I’m used to from BigBang members lol. I hope what’s left of the album is a bit more upbeat and less intense.

          3 years ago
  27. I agree with Simon on GD and CL trying to hard, trying too hard to be wannabe gansters. It doesn’t work for me at all. When this song and video first came out I was like “meh its alright”, but it has grown on me since. I looooved Fangurilla in the background, fricking hillarious. And yes we girls are exactly like that at home.

  31. Wow! I LOVED this KMM. The skits, the english, the showdown, the dance, all of it was entertaining and very reminiscent of older KMM’s (I loved the longer ones so much). But I was really surprised you guys actually liked GTTU, since it didn’t have a really huge buildup and the chorus didn’t really sound any brighter than the rest of the song. But then you guys talked about how you thought GD/CL (CD) tried too hard to have that sound. To me, that’s the YG sound. But I didn’t enjoy MichiGO or The Baddest Female because they did sound too..dubstep-y(?) and that’s not really my thing.

    I’m looking forward to what you think of Coup d’état.

  35. Exactly and that’s basically why I support Lee Hi and this song from Seungri. Even though they are from YG, they haven’t made this gangster/over the top video. I appreciate that a lot.

  36. OMG, I can’t POSSIBLY choose between my two favorite K-pop songs at the moment.. I looove love love MBLAQ’s sexy “Smoky Girl”, but also my love for BigBang and especially Seungri oppa is too high and everlasting to ever be able to choose between them!! ♥ *-*

    • Another kpop song that I’ll never be able to sing properly (just add it to the list, along with I lost my pants and nothing sober) :P When I first heard this song, I thought he was saying hustle man… What is he actually saying, do you know?

      3 years ago
      • He’s saying Hustlin’ Hustlin’ lol.

        • See? Thanks for that because otherwise I thought all of the other choices were completely plausible, I actually thought it might be Korean there until you said it.

      • I think they’re looking at stats, not viewer reaction. They’re a business now so they need to have people wath their videos to make money.

        3 years ago
        • It’s funny though, because I’ve rewatched the longer KMM the most and a majority of the fanbase I come in contact with seem to enjoy the longer episodes the more. Maybe the shorter viewer stats on these videos isn’t from people leaving half way through the video but people only watching for their favorite skits.

          3 years ago
        • It’s not that people were actually leaving complaints in the comments. EYK checked out the stats on their videos and viewers tend to click away after 6 or 7 minutes. So they don’t have to force themselves to come up with 6 minutes of extra content when most people would click away anyways.

          3 years ago
        • I said I made the assumption based on the fact that they said themselves that they get more views on shorter videos. Read the blog post above. They said “Our Music Mondays are shorter because we noticed that people don’t watch long Music Mondays (sure, some people do, but the majority doesn’t). Keep it short and sweet.” They obviously know what they’re talking about. Whether the people who do watch their videos prefer it long or short, the fact is that they have said that they get more views on shorter videos, and they are in the business of getting views after all. They make their living off of this show.

          Anyway, calm down. They’re bringing you content. If they feel that making a shorter video is better for them as a business, then that’s their decision to make, not yours. They are bringing you free content that you obviously enjoy. They don’t have to do that at all. Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth.
