Winner has returned with a Big Bang-styled letter release Exit (but with what looks like five tracks a piece), and E got three videos to reintroduce the group.

The one that will likely get the most attention is Baby Baby thanks to the snippets of artists like Zion.T, Lee Hi, and Taeyang covering the song that were used to promote it before the group’s version had been heard.  An iffy strategy if only because there was the high possibility that people’s ears would like one of the covers better.

Still, the Winner version isn’t bad; it just feels a little off as the doo-wop style doesn’t really fit the voices of some of the members.  The production sounds a little instrument heavy in places but never tips the balance to become annoying.

What saves this song is the lyrics.  They tell the story of someone who is lonely for any kind of company they can get just to feel that human contact.  The sweetness of the production and (most of) the vocals make it seem more like pitching game than it actually is, but it works with the theme.

pop!gasa, don’t leave us alone again.

Lyrics:
Baby baby, I don’t like this night
Baby baby, I don’t wanna be alone

Hey girls, if you’re not busy
Wanna be with me tonight?
Oh baby, I won’t ask for much
Just be my talking companion

My friends, what’re you doing today?
Wanna get a drink?
I see you’re busy, ok next time
Let’s at least see each other’s faces

Baby baby, I don’t like this night
Baby baby, I don’t wanna be alone
Let’s spend this lonely night together
Let’s forget everything and get drunk
Baby baby, I don’t wanna be alone

Drifting on top of my bed, I’m sending an SOS
I sent countless texts, asking what’re you doing?
I’m curled up in a ball, I’m feeling smaller
The silence is louder than any noise in the world, shut up

Girls pour down on the streets like rain
But they won’t rain on me
Take away that umbrella above your head
The night is too long
Your answer is too short like a poem
When the sun rises again
I’ll start to fall asleep

Baby baby, I don’t like this night
Baby baby, I don’t wanna be alone
Let’s spend this lonely night together
Let’s forget everything and get drunk
Baby baby, I don’t wanna be alone

The more time passes
The bigger my longing grows for love
I can’t do anything
Please save me

Baby baby, I don’t like this night
Baby baby, I don’t wanna be alone

Let’s spend this lonely night together
Let’s forget everything and get drunk
Baby baby, I don’t wanna be alone

Baby baby, I don’t like this night
Baby baby, I don’t wanna be alone
Let’s spend this lonely night together
Let’s forget everything and get drunk

Baby baby, I don’t wanna be alone
