Volume Up

Okay, I have to admit that I only looked this up after the Gangnam Song but this is quite a catchy dance song too particularly the chorus part. The Gangnam Song led to Kim Hyun-A, which led to 4-Minute, which led to a number of singles including this one.

What I don’t quite get is why many of these K/J-Pop singers like to release mini-albums instead of releasing a full album of songs. It seems to me that singing songs seem to have taken a back-seat to looking sultry and dancing provocatively. I’m not complaining though!

But the lyrics – cheesy, or maybe it’s just the translation.

When you first saw me, you couldn’t take your eyes off of me
Uh uh uh uh you, uh uh uh uh
You talk about me and say you don’t like me because I’m too easy behind my back
Eh eh eh eh why

You used to dance and smile everyday to my voice
But now you say you don’t want to hear my voice anymore and turn your back

I’m going crazy, he says I’m done now
He says there’s no room for me anymore
Turn up my voice, Turn up this music
Everybody time to rock

Take it all away and pump up the volume (up up)
Don’t wanna hear it – pump up the volume (up up)
I will change more as time goes by and get stronger eh eh eh oh more

Uh uh uh uh uh Uh uh uh uh uh oh more
Uh uh uh uh uh Uh uh uh uh uh

You never looked at me properly even once
Uh uh uh uh you, uh uh uh uh
Whatever I did, you didn’t care
Hey eh eh eh eh why

Your eyes make constrict my heart more and more everyday
Now I am hidden as a greater scar in my heart

I’m going crazy, he says I’m done now
He says there’s no room for me anymore
Turn up my voice, Turn up this music
Everybody time to rock

Take it all away and pump up the volume (up up)
Don’t wanna hear it – pump up the volume (up up)
I will change more as time goes by and get stronger eh eh eh oh more

Uh uh uh uh uh Uh uh uh uh uh oh more
Uh uh uh uh uh Uh uh uh uh uh

You won’t know, there’s no way you would know me
Lie lie lie lie
Lie lie lie lie
Lie lie lie lie

Take it all away and pump up the volume (up up)
Don’t wanna hear it – pump up the volume (up up)
I will change more as time goes by and get stronger eh eh eh oh more
Uh uh uh uh uh Uh uh uh uh uh oh more
Uh uh uh uh uh Uh uh uh uh uh
