Yes the most generic question, but a very important one. It seems like we’re all across the board in terms what we think is the best track is off of Taeyang’s new “SOLAR” album. Did “You’re My” pull your heart-strings? Did “MOVE” or “Break Down” make you move more? Vote!
*I’m evil. I’m making you pick only one. keke. Pick the one you’re feeling the most at the moment.
What’s mine? Read under the cut…if you even care. lol. Plus English translations for the track!
At the moment, and I’m sure for a while, I’m completely OBSSESSED with “Take it Slow.” When I first heard it, I thought it was just “Okay” nothing too exciting. Suddenly the song just hit me hard. Real hard. I’m absolutely floored by almost everything about the track from the main melody, the arrangement, lyrics, and down to Taeyang’s vocals. Cat@lyst did a great job with the production. I’m especially impressed that Taeyang helped compose the song and penned the lyrics to it. The song is very grown and sophisticated, very grand and the vocals seem to sweep you away with it. It’s sensual, but very sensible and tasteful. Taeyang sings about spending a very special moment with a very special person (trying to keep it PG here…) yet you can sense this angst and fear in his voice like he’s holding her, but he’s already afraid that he’ll lose her when he wakes up. Absolutely stunning.
Check out the English translation below. Ladies, grab a tissue box and prepare for nosebleeds.
“Take It Slow” has me convinced that Taeyang needs to invest more time in composing. He obviously has chops and talent for it. I can’t wait for the live stage performance at his upcoming concert.
