“Boom Boom”, the second song on the Bonamana album, is again, “God she’s so hot, I’m so obsessed, maybe I shouldn’t be? But ughhh so hoooooot.” Super Junior seems to be less inspired-sounding when they are singing about how hot girls are; they do better with love songs. Also isn’t this the exact same premise of “Bonamana“, which is directly before this on the album, other than with added doubt in it? Continue reading

obviously obviously obviously

“Bonamana” is the lead single on Super Junior’s fourth album, also called Bonamana, and is pretty obviously meant to be as much of a repeat as “Sorry, Sorry” as they could possibly wring out of it. It doesn’t hit the spot nearly as much. Continue reading

Siwon??? A solo Siwon song?? Yes indeed; Siwon’s first solo song is from the Oh! My Lady OST, in which he starred as an asshole celebrity who lives with his manager/cleaning lady and gets her to watch his child and romantic misadventures ensue. And… oh dear. Continue reading

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.)

Hey neat, it’s the song from SS2 that was not actually released until a month later! Hey neat, it also makes more sense now why they did it early; it’s not an original song. It’s actually a cover of a Dutch song from 2005. So in that regard, it’s not as weird, I guess. Also semi-surprising that again, everyone’s on this other than Heechul (and TVXQ and SHINee, lol).

Now that Super Show 2 is a wrap, let’s move on down (… TO THE BASEMENT) to the next song in the SJ repertoire, which is the song they did with EVERYBODY MALE IN THE SM CATALOG AT THAT TIME OTHER THAN KANGTA APPARENTLY. Good lord. This is from 2009 Summer SMTown – We Are Shining, which is one of the last SMTown seasonal compilations that SM did. Also, to be honest, the cover art isn’t that bad given some other SMtown compilation art we’ve seen. Interesting that a summer compilation came out so late in the summer. Literally everyone in TVXQ, SHINee, and Super Junior gets at least one solo line on this song (aside from Heechul for obvious reasons), which is nuts given that the song is only 3:10. Continue reading
