This week’s track is a hot song just released few hours ago, The Melody by Super Junior.
Today is Super Junior’s 15th anniversary of the debut, and the members write this song for the fans who have accompanied them for such a long time. Super Junior is a Korean idol group that counts as one of the most long-lived K-Pop groups in history. And they are my first impression of K-Pop, which made me one of their E.L.F.
This song brings back a lot of memories of the hard times through the nameless periods. The medium-tempo with a pleasant whistling background brings joy to the audience. You can easily feel the joy in the vocals and dreaming for the bright future together.
Oh even for so many anxious days
We protected ourselves because we were together
Even the moments we wanted to give up everything
We got over because we were one
We met with nothing in common
On the night we sang about eternity, not just about a moment
Do you remember the passionate voice?
This song, only you and I know
The Melody of the time that was our beginning...
When you get a chance to listen to your favorite artist’s song at the end of a long day, that’s a eudemonic moment to enjoy the resonance with the music. Like in the lyrics, we may meet with nothing in common, but it’s music that brings us together. Listen to the melody and have a nice trip back to the one fine day.
