Music & Lyrics: The delicate Nuances of “OMG”

Track Lyrics: The sophisticated Nuances of OMGWritten by ability of Lo On January 15, 2016There are few wordswhich are equallyright away one-dimensional as either OMG or Oh my god. It's miles the verbal hallmark of shallow, materialistic womensmitten bybuying groceries and gossip the arena over. And of course, it has shown up many, time and again in K-pop. Yet are thosemore than one songs, all proudly named after the shallowest word in existence, as shallow as they seem?

The most reasonable OMG is from TTSs debut mini-album. It'sregularlythought to besome of themore potent tracks by the subunit, and it's the textbook example of oh my god as the safe haven of mocking girls. The lyrics are, on their own, somewhat sweet. In fact, theyre a little too sugary.

Yet when paired with the vocal performances of TTS, the overly saccharine lyrics develop into into natural sarcasm. The consistent flattery of the guys charm, air of mysteryand tool are biting, catty words from a pack of mean girls reveling in their antics. And each time you get started to feel an ounce of sincerity, an easy oh my god, totally dripping with disdain clears it appropriate up.

Music & Lyrics: Let’s Talk About Sex

News via seoulbeats.com

MusicLyrics: Lets Talk About Sex Written by Pat On November 11, 2015 Sex is a part of life. Thanks to Western media, one can become desensitized to the topic because it can be found everywhere – songs, television shows, movies, wherever. On the surface, K-pop is very different. There are a lot of ‘innocent’ and ‘cute’ concepts. Crossing the line can easily get one banned from performing on weekly shows or their music video rated 19+, making it harder to score broadcast points. That is not to say that sex is a completely taboo subject. In fact, there are a lot of songs that do reference and talk about it. Which is why, today, we are talking all about those songs.

Talking about such a topic always comes with warnings. While I will try to keep this as clean as possible, there will still be references to sex and, potentially, sexual acts. If you are, in any way, uncomfortable with the topic, then please hit the back button back to safety.

Usually, there are two categories of songs regarding the mentioning of sex or anything sexual. The first are the songs in which sex is covert and subtle. The second category is songs where sex is openly talked about in either unabashed references or shameless innuendos.

MusicLyrics: From Predator to Prey, Exos Evolution Written by Laverne On September 2, 2015 Exo, the group you love to hate or hate to love. SM Entertainments cash cows are almost always under some sort of controversy whether its member departures, fan club drama, or songs that the world just isnt ready for. But while non-Exo fans may not be able to see it, the group has matured both musically and lyrically since their debut.

While their title tracks have often divided K-pop fans, Exos B-sides showcase much better talent and genre choices. Of course, this isnt a Seoulbeats Side B. Instead, with this edition of MusicLyrics, well take a look at Exos title tracks and their growth through lyrics.

From the inception of the group, it has always been hard to define Exo because they have drastically changed musical styles with each comeback. Their debut, Mama, features a haunted chorus that mirrors the dark lyrics:

Music & Lyrics: Sexism, Entitlement and the Devil

News via seoulbeats.com

While this lyric excerpt is a bit ambiguous in detailing sexism, the song as a whole exudes male entitlement. It starts off detailing that from the first look the man wanted her and confidently says he will have her. While confidence is definitely a positive when approaching someone, there is no respect for what the girl wants. It doesn’t have to be spelled out to you to see that she might not want to be in this situation as UNIQ go on to say ‘don’t try to go away. If you have to say this to a girl, then there is clearly something wrong. UNIQ is treading into the territory of the ‘I know you want it’ mentality, expertly depicted by Robin Thickes Blurred Lines.

Though the sexist tones are more ambiguous compared to “Blurred Lines, especially when they start to talk about wanting to move to the music together, hints of male entitlement can still be seen in this song. Consent is the key here, but UNIQ are not interested in the word no at all; they have no regard for the girl as a human. They find her sexy; therefore, she is theirs for the taking. In UNIQ’s perspective, we start to see the normalization of rape culture, where consent is completely disregarded.

In the song, the girl is called a sexy devil when she seemingly tempts a man and then eludes his grasp. This negatively portrays female sexuality as it links to the idea that a female can only be sexual for a man. This couldnt be further from the truth as females are first and foremost sexy for themselves, as a form of confidence (Example: Spicas I Did It). Basically, at no point should a female or even a male be justifiably called a devil for denying someones advances.

Music & Lyrics: Apologetic Songs

News via seoulbeats.com

Finally, this couldnt be helped because of the sheer irony of the situation. Of course, we must add Just One Day by BTS. To be fair, this song doesnt really belong here since its about a desire to spend a magical day with someone special more than regretting anything. However, it was far too tempting not to include this because Rap Monster gives us all the apology we wish to heartoo bad its only at the beginning of his rap and has nothing to do with previous events. We can pretend it counts anyway!

Regardless of whatever drama may befall our favorite idols next, lets bear in mind that they are human and prone to mistakes. Despite what excuses fans will make on their behalf for shutting down when they screw up, at least its good to know that idols can express these emotions musically. Im actually all for musical apologies, so if they can only do it in this form, then lets start this trend!
