Twinkle Snsd Ranking

The SNSD CF Song Ranking Party

Two other songs were part of the PYL campaign with SM and Hyundai: one was a BoA song, the other a solo from Jessica. My Lifestyle is cute and I made it her unofficial anthem during Sicagate; but even I, a big fan of Jessicas voice, will readily admit that she sounds particularly nasal and annoying in this song At certain parts. Its not for the whole song! But the chorus, especially, does suffer from shrillness. Maybe if Dok2 was in the song more, it could have helped offset some of the teeth-on-edge feeling you get when listening to the song.

This is a fun summer tune, but ultimately goes nowhere; just like the MV. Its a decent pre-release track and on-trend with the deluge of summer releases happening right now; but the truth is thatsave for the exciting shopping list of alcohol (Lemon soju! Tequila! Mojito!)the song is not very memorable, with the visuals appealing much more.

This song may be found in 2011 album The Boys, but Vitamin debuted earlier that year as part of a campaign for the Vitamin C drink. The members got their faces on the bottles and everything! (See above)
