We knew it was coming but we didn’t think it would be quite this soon.  Big Bang has surprised us with a double feature of videos for their new album and tour.  The first track, Bae Bae, has a nice sound to it with a laidback beat but with rappers G-Dragon and T.O.P giving us a little trap flow.  The gentlemen sound good and there is a maturity about the track that showcases their age without making them sound old.  About being completely and totally entranced by your significant other, if there is one thing that this song has taught me is that the term “making rice cakes” is apparently slang for sex in Korea.

Update:  The video has been explained to me this way: all the members are representing different types of sex.  G-Dragon is kinky sex, Taeyang is romantic sex, T.O.P is uber-pleasurable sex, Daesung is fantasy-type sex, and Seung-Ri is hentai (laugh).  The part with them being on the moon is apparently because Koreans says that the dark shapes on the moon resemble to rabbits having sex.  Yeah…wow.

pop!gasa is our bae…

Lyrics:
I’M IN LOVE
I’m blind with love babe
No pants on with a white shirt babe
Are you a human or an angel?
Oh Jesus babe
You’re dazzling babe
Sunglass babe
My mind is so out of it
I’m possessed by you
Blood is rushing to that one place again
It’s dangerous
You’re so dangerous babe
Save me babe
Call the police babe

Baby baby
Can you stay beautiful just like you are right now?
So my heart can race even after time passes
Baby baby
Don’t wither, this is all for the selfish me
You have to stay just as you are right now

Your eyes are pretty like a deer
My princess
When you laugh at me it’s so chic
Are you crazy?
You’re a natural beauty, so unique, so unique
My perfect dear
Be my muse
We’re so comfortable together
I’m gaining so much weight
My body wraps around yours so perfectly
You’re forever 25 to me
Won’t ever change
BABE 5 X 5 BABE

Baby baby
Can you stay beautiful just like you are right now?
So my heart can race even after time passes
Baby baby
Don’t wither, this is all for the selfish me
You have to stay just as you are right now

I’m a man who’s holding a pretty flower
A man who’s holding a flower called you, who everyone loves
I’m drunk with your scent, getting hazy again
Don’t get plucked away
Please

Like rice cakes, like rice cakes1
Our chemistry, our chemistry
Like rice cakes, like rice cakes
Our chemistry, our chemistry


1 This has a sexual innuendo because “making rice cakes” can be slang for sex.
