Music Monday is back! It’s late as hell, but at least it’s here! Sorry it took so long. We had to go to immigration on Monday. Had to. We couldn’t go before we went to Europe, but we had to go when we got back. Monday was the day. And it should have taken only 20 minutes, but it took almost 4 hours. Whoa. Hey: did you ever meet anyone who went to immigration and left saying “wow, that was so pleasant”? No? I doubt it.
Anyhow, MUSIC MONDAY! We had lots of fun filming this and being silly with each other. I’m especially proud of the whale foreskin joke. It’s just my kind of humour.
But we excluded a few videos from this list (well, a few hundred). Here are three more that came out:
Ahh. Sadly, I was really bored with this. I liked the first TTS song and video a lot more, but this was just…meh. And I’m surprised! I thought Girls’ Generation had a great comeback with Mr. Mr., and I thought that they were going to stick to their original sound, but this song doesn’t really have that. The video’s kinda not great either. It starts off with the same kinda Genie vibe to it, with a man’s hand and first person perspective, as he walks up to TTS and gets the key, and they flirt with him. I don’t know. Nothing really stood out for me.
Ok guise: this is brilliant. It’s shot in a mode that’s made for your phone. How smart is that? You can hold your phone naturally and watch this video. And majority of YouTube videos are viewed on mobile now anyways. IT’S SO FUTURE! All videos should be shot like this from now on.
Also, umm, a where’s the censorship in this video? A whole lot of F words in here. We swear, but we beep it out at least! I wonder if this is banned in Korea. Probably. I haven’t looked into it, but I’m pretty sure it’s banned by the Ministry of Banishment. Probably because it promotes claustrophobia or some stupid banning reason.
The song’s otherwise alright. Not the best thing ever, but I like it a load more than TTS’s song. I like it more at the beat change at the 3 minute and 4:10 minute mark. Otherwise, the beat is a bit…repetitive after a while. Still: I’ll listen to this song a lot more.
OH NOOOO!!!! A BALLAD! Why did we say we were going to talk about this video? Ahhh. Damn. I can’t edit that part out. Soo. Damn. I guess I gotta write stuff about boys looking sad again. Ok.
Well, the chorus sounds a lot better than the main verse. I’d like it better without violins. Violins in pop music always make a song sound more serious than it should be. If you can’t tell by now, I like a healthy dose of irony. No one should ever take themselves too seriously. Everything can be laughed at. Especially people taking themselves too seriously.
WAIT! I just saw something I liked: the dance looked cool. There you go. And thus concludes all I have to say about this video.
And now back to us being not serious: we’ve got some extra scenes and bloopers from this week’s Music Monday, including an interesting history about the pants we cut up:
So that’s it for this week. I’m sure we missed a bajillion great videos. We couldn’t keep up with them all when we were in Europe. Let us know if there’s anything we HAVE HAVE HAVVVVEEEE to watch :D
