I (as in Zaku) thought we'd try a duo-review after some time since the last one. This particular collaboration is between me (as in Zaku still) and HanYeSeul Fag.
I have never thought this quote from Mr. Mackey was more true than when I listened to "Good Boy." Good God, I have no idea where to start about what is wrong with this song. However, I can tell you the source of the shittiness of the song.
Five years ago, Taeyang released one of the best songs of the current generation of K-pop music, "Wedding Dress." He was at the top of his game, turning himself into one of Korea's representative R&B artists. His solo material really sold me on his ability. Of course, the song was composed by Teddy, when he was focused on composing good music instead of inserting his tongue into Han Ye Seul's pussy.
Taeyang continued to have a successful solo career after "Wedding Dress," releasing hits such as "I Need A Girl." His music was still very good. I was surprised how much I liked his music because I just got into Korean entertainment a year ago, and you guys know what song came out a year ago...
What the fuck happened to Taeyang? I had to investigate, because as a new fan, I couldn't understand how this shit song got over 20 million views. I found his old songs and became a fan, so I had to find what caused Taeyang to stray from the path of good music.
"Mother fucker!" was the first thing I said when I saw Taeyang in dreadlocks in this MV. I knew it had to be G Dragon's influence. He probably shared his weed with Taeyang, and after smoking enough joints, Taeyang changed his career trajectory for the worse. I'm okay with people smoking weed until it leads people to making horrible decisions. Taeyang smoked one too many joints with G Dragon, which is how this shitty song was born.
|GDruggin x Tokeyang|
I don't even get some of the shit that's going on here.
|For example, check out this random white girl getting hyphy watching|
other people play DDR.
|Who's the poor sap who had this done to him?|
Why is the barber so incompetent as to fuck up the letter sizing so 'BOY'
get pushed down past the hair line?
But surely the choreo's got something in there to redeem the MV a bit right? I mean Taeyang and GD are the two best dancers in Big Bang, and people have circlejerked about how much of a pleasure it is to work with someone so 'gifted' as Taeyang is right? Wrong. WRONG.
There are actually people out there RIGHT NOW who think this is cool.
|Who needs technical complexity when you have SWAG??|
|WE ALREADY DID THIS DANCE IN "ONE OF A KIND," BRUH|
Yeah. So if visuals aren't great and the dance sucks, what's left for us in this MV anyway? Jack shit, that's what. The song sucks balls too.
I will admit, the beat is kinda nice in a trashy "LET'S GET FUCKED UP TONIGHT AND FUCK SHIT UP" kind of way but everything else about this song -- from the composition to the mixing to the lyrics -- suck. I had high hopes (yes yes, laugh it up) for this song because I held onto some small chance that Taeyang kept up his good karma from going back down the RnB route with his Rise album, but those were promply shit on like our ears were with this song. Possibly the only two things about this song are the Taeyang bridge to the chorus (I liked it) and the end of this song that means we don't have to listen to it anymore.
This is a 100% accurate reproduction of how this song, like every other YG
production these days, was made.
We could have had something so great with this one. Remember the last good Taeyang x GD collaboration? Protip:
You can't I Need a Girl from his SOLAR days was fucking fantastic, WHY CAN'T WE HAVE NICE THINGS ANYMORE?
Don't bother or this will be you:
S P 0 0 K Y
- beat is nice I guess
- Taeyang's bridge is decent I think (at least compared to the rest of the song)
- everything else
I give this song a 1/5.
