exactly that

Monday Random Ten

Picture of Tom Hulce as Mozart in Amadeus. A pale man is leaning over the top of a pool table in a long-sleeved white shirt with a ruffled sleeve writing feverishly on stave paper with a quill. An ink pot is at his elbow, and a what appears to be a tennis ball is in front of him. Several other pieces of sheet music are scattered around him. The caption reads "Mozart had a few minutes before his next game, so he finished Symphony No. 25, tossed off Horn Concerto No. 3 [in E-flat] and put in a little thought on that pesky Requiem Mass that Masked Dude asked for.

I just did an enormous photo dump from my camera and am in the process of updating my Picasa albums. One of my favourite things in life is cataloging every moment that I can remember to get into the SLR. I hope to get some time this week to do a few photo dump posts here to catch you up on what is going on with us, because Seoul has been good to us, and we are loving every moment of soaking up the sun, dust, and monsoon season.

In the meantime, shall we kick off the week?

Video: Wonder Girls “Nobody” (A favorite of mine) (I will elaborate on Wikipedia’s description)

The video starts with a music group which is a Korean male singer with a group of five women backup singers performing a song (which is an actual song of his called “Honey”). The singer is Park Jin-Young, (JYP as he is known), a notable Korean music star. They are singing on a stage with a band to a live audience. You are supposed to get the feeling that it is a 1960s Motown-style concert, and possibly set in the actual 1960.

After the concert, some music executives bring JYP some sheet music for a song called “Nobody”, and he sits down to a piano and plunks out the tune and gives it a whirl, preparing it for the next show.

Just before the next show, JYP wanders into a men’s bathroom and does his business to discover that there is no toiler paper. He calls out in Korea “Is nobody there?”, but there is no one to help him.

On stage, the music execs are standing around nervously wondering where the heck he is, and finally motion to the five backup singers to come to center stage with their microphones as the music begins. The bust out with “Nobody”, and they are instantly a smash hit, dancing and singing and rotating to show off how each of them are equally talented. The video goes through a montage to show how the career of The Wonder Girls takes them to instant celebrity status.

One of the Wonder Girls is a talented rapper, and she busts out with some of that towards the end as well.

Then JYP comes out and takes a bow.

At the end of the video JYP again wanders into a bathroom, checking for toiler paper and seeing some, but pulls off the last square, and once again has to call for help.

Lyrics (in English, see Romanized Korean here):

You know I still love you, baby
And it will never change, saranghae

I want nobody, nobody but you
I want nobody, nobody but you
How can I be with another? I don’t want any other
I want nobody, nobody, nobody, nobody

Why are you trying to, to make me leave ya
I know what you’re thinking, baby why aren’t you listening?
How can I just, just love someone else
And forget you completely when I know you still love me?

Telling me you’re not good enough
My life with you is just too tough
You know it’s not right, so just stop and come back, boy
How can this be when we were meant to be?

I want nobody, nobody but you
I want nobody, nobody but you
How can I be with another? I don’t want any other
I want nobody, nobody, nobody, nobody

I want nobody, nobody but you
I want nobody, nobody but you
How can I be with another? I don’t want any other
I want nobody, nobody, nobody, nobody

Why can’t we just, just be like this?
‘Cause it’s you that I need and nothing else until the end
Who else can ever make me feel the way
I, I feel when I’m with you, no one will ever do

Telling me you’re not good enough
My life with you is just too tough
You know me enough, so you know what I need, boy
Right next to you is where I need to be

I want nobody, nobody but you
I want nobody, nobody but you
How can I be with another? I don’t want any other
I want nobody, nobody, nobody, nobody

I want nobody, nobody but you
I want nobody, nobody but you
How can I be with another? I don’t want any other
I want nobody, nobody, nobody, nobody

I don’t want nobody, body
I don’t want nobody, body
Honey, you know it’s you that I want
It’s you that I need, why can’t you see?

I want nobody, nobody but you
I want nobody, nobody but you
How can I be with another? I don’t want any other
I want nobody, nobody, nobody, nobody

I want nobody, nobody but you
I want nobody, nobody but you
How can I be with another? I don’t want any other
I want nobody, nobody, nobody, nobody

[Rap]
Back to the days when we were so young and wild and free
Nothing else mattered other than you and me, so tell me why can’t it be?
Please let me live my life my way
Why do you push me away?
I don’t want nobody nobody nobody nobody but you

Have a great week, y’all.
