Day 03 – Song That Makes You Happy

JEJUNG & YUCHUN (from 東方神起/ TVXQ )  –  COLORS ~Melody and Harmony~

Composed by JaeJoong and YooChun themselves in 10 minutes, the simple but appealing melody of this song makes me happy no matter what. I think part of the reason that makes such a great effect is that the song was produced in literally 10 minutes by Jaejoong and Yoochun – it’s simple, it’s intuitive, it’s inspiring, and the “telepathy” and perfect cooperation between the two bosom friends make this song harmonious and peaceful. This song proves that simple melody and composition without complex thinking can also be successful.

When I am lonely, this song warms my heart; when I feel upset, this song pacifies me; when I am in a good mood, this song just makes me want to smile.

Lyrics Translation:

right now, somewhere, someone
is in pain
is feeling lonely
can’t sleep at night
is going through all of these
until the light shines through to that heart
because if only it can touch
that melody and harmony and love

for someone’s sake
we are here
although we can only achieve small things
even just for 1 second
we still want to stop all the tears in this world
and turn them all into smiles

keep loving, and keep walking
we’ve been believing that we will be able to
convey these overflowing feelings
even before we were born
we knew that we would meet
and that we would be searching for out dreams together

with the sparkling sound
time will move forward
you’ll forget all the sorrow
melody and harmony
you are always by my side
giving me courage and hope
thank you
thank you forever
these glittering feelings
are you gifts
you taught me how to support each other
to watch over each other
and that i’m not lonely

the love that was plied up
is riding on the melody
i want to continue conveying that love
forever and ever

starting from here

keep loving, and keep walking
we’ve been believing that we will be able to
convey these overflowing feelings

thank you
thank you forever
these glittering feelings
are you gifts
the love that was plied up
is riding on the melody
i want to continue conveying that love
forever and ever

right now, somewhere, someone
is in pain
is feeling lonely
can’t sleep at night
is going through all of these
until the light shines through to that heart
because if only it can touch
like a melody and harmony in love

*Note: TVXQ is a group that I admired the most out of all the idol groups I like. They not only succeeded in Korea (their native nation), they also succeeded in Japan, defeating most of Japanese native singers and got #1 on Oricon ranking list (Japan’s most influential music ranking list) for many times. Their Japanese are perfectly fluent, and they are so successful in both countries that when I first got to know them, I couldn’t recognize if they are Korean or Japanese. Though now broken apart into two separate parts: TVXQ ( including Changmin and Yunho) and JYJ (including Jaejoong, Yoochun and Junsu) due to the lawsuit in 2009, the glory of the TVXQ of 5 people stays in my heart.
