Not to be confused with Super Junior Happy’s “You & I“! Here we are, at the final song of the Super Girl EP, and the last song Hangeng is EVER on with Super Junior, and this is a song that… sounds like “Marry U.” Sporting lyrics by Zhou Mi again, this meanders along in a gentle way, and suffers the same issue as “Marry U”, that of being so relatively uptempo for a romantic song, and predictable chord-wise, that it’s like eating hardtack when you were hoping for beef bourguignon. Or candy hearts (yucky and chalky, says me) when you wanted a box of Ghirardelli. Continue reading

“Only U” brings out the previously-involved-with-producing-Kylie-Minogue-and-Lily-Allen-songs Greg Kurstin as a songwriter! And yet this is not mentioned in his production/writing discography… even though an f(x) song is listed as a writing credit for his cowriter, Karen Poole. I wonder why? Continue reading

Good morning! Got behind, in part due to massive internet outage, and am also having a tremendous week for brain fog (possibly work stress, lack of sleep, seasonal pressure changes, all three), so who knows how well this is going to turn out if I am foggy-brained and rushing to ensure I don’t miss a day.

WHOOAAA WHOOAAA

Good morning, everyone, or evening as the case may be, and let’s talk about “SUPER GIRL”, which is possibly my favorite Super Junior-M song (it’s top 3, at least), and also Hangeng’s last single as a Super Junior member! It is a lovely Autotuned piece of Eurotrash, written and produced and everythinged by Yoo Youngjin (who normally just writes), and it has separate videos for both the Korean and the Chinese version, and it is 2009 so most of everyone is at maximum cute, and please click to view the wonderment. (Also, in the header image you will see if you click to view more, I would like to point out that Ryeowook is wearing MASSIVE lifts. He is a tiny elf person and there is no way he’s that tall.)

Super Show 2 Part 3 of 5

Live(?)blogging the entirety of Super Show 2, in 40-ish-minute chunks! Parts 1 and 2 are here, and you can follow along here.

Before I get started, is it just me or is this show missing some heart so far? It’s definitely more fanservicey than the first Super Show, what with all the humping and fans’-hand-kissing and stuff, but it feels like the only parts they are actually having any fun with are the parts where they get to run around the stage like lunatics, and that’s because they’re mostly just messing around with each other. We’re close to halfway through, so I hope this improves.

This song has nothing to do with “You Are The One”, despite reusing the phrase in the chorus, and instead is for the Beijing Olympics! Having trouble figuring out if this was an official song or not – it wasn’t THE official song, but if it’s anything like any other major sporting event there’s a whole album’s worth of official songs.

I’ve kind of been in a writing rut lately, pushing myself forward due to “can’t give up on ANOTHER project” and also because I can see that songs I already have half-written posts in my head about are not that far off if I can just. get. there.!!! But here, as if to break my fall, is a song with PROBLEMS! Continue reading

This has such an annoying toddler introduction that I was all ready to give this a 2. But “Love Song” spends the rest of the introduction flirting with That One Song Everybody at SM did (you know, the one I talked about in “Happiness”) before becoming something slightly more complex.
