Big Bang – Fantastic Baby: Kpop Music Mondays

Wow! Fantastic Baby! If you haven’t heard Big Bang’s fantastic song yet, check it out here.

So, for starters, this is definitely the funnest song they’ve released since their comeback. Blue was serious and contemplative; Bad Boy was swag and head-noddy. Big Bang’s Fantastic Baby, on the other hand, is a song that’s really difficult to listen to while sitting down. It’s demands that you get up and act ridiculous, and has a pretty ridiculous video to go with it.

It’s not a perfect song though. We’ve got a tiny issue with it, that I’m sure some of you might actually not find issue with: while “Wow! Fantastic Baby!” is fun to say, it really breaks the song apart a bit. The song builds up fantastically, and reaches a fever pitch with Daesung’s banshee scream, all leading up to the chorus where everyone’s ready to lose their mind…and then the song stops for them to say “Wow! Fantastic Baby!” Some people like it when the music stops like that. I don’t like that feeling. Sorry! The rest of the song is stellar, and TOP’s “Boomshakalaka” is so well edited: the distance and effects or whatever kind of music-magic was made in post-production just make it sound so freaking commanding.

Too bad TOP isn’t as commanding in the video as he is in the song. You can’t tell me we’re the only ones who are thinking this. We make fun of TOP for not dancing in his other videos, like in Tonight, but it seems like TOP is getting more and more disinterested in being in music videos. Or is it the image he’s going for? Supposedly TOP’s interested in pursuing a career in acting: maybe acting lifeless is something he’s interested in? I don’t know. Maybe some of you are into him looking all distant and aloof and disinterested.

Well, even if we don’t like TOP’s acting, we still totally dig this song, and the song before it, and the song before that one as well. The whole album’s pretty damned cool. If you haven’t picked it up on iTunes yet, get it delivered to your house by clicking on the link below. Boom!

Big Bang

Also, we’ve got bloopers as always! Martina’s feather lips were quite difficult to put on, and resulted in some general awkwardness.

  8. So sad. The tears :'( . I find it funny how a part in the MV where they tried doing the 360 slow motion camera manually. MWAHAHA, would’ve made a great joke. I like TOP in the video. MAybe he seemed a little… words… to you, but I liked it. I felt as if he did a good job, but mind you I spent most of my time pausing the video looking at their abs. Heh.

  24. i think i would have to go with BIG BANG although DVXQ did really well and the dance was awesome and the song is really catchy. i still think BIG BANG did better on the jail break theme with all the members only coming together at the end and having a whole riot support them.i feel like i would be one of those people trying to help BIG BANG get out and support the cause of dance. the yelling in the song also created a better feel of escape. BIG BANG ALL THE WAY…

  29. well i think its two diff things. cz BB like wanna express their feelings, while mirotic i could say expose their body. and Fantastic Baby Is TOTALLY not a dance MV. while DBSK like most of another sm artist is a dance MV. so I choose BIG BANG,, FANTASTIC BABY MV IS A STORY OF THEIR LIFE :) . not to be compare

  37. I wish the challenge was between Big Bang and BEG’s sixth sense, a lot of similarities there, but yeah I can see the similarities with Mirotic as well, but how can I possibly votes between TVXQ (5) and Big Bang!!! And Martina and Simon leave ‘my’ TOP alone.
