Jay Park’s protégé, Hoody, is going to be releasing her first EP in a few day and the pre-release single is a surprisingly upbeat, eighties-style jam about the simple happiness of love.

Over and bouncy and happy production that perfectly matches the sunniness of the theme and lyrics, Hoody puts her sweetheart vocals to work and, indeed, those are what see the song.  As much as some may want every singer to blast out on every track, the truth is not everything requires it and this song is one that doesn’t.  The laidback tone of her performance lends itself to the laidback vibe of being happy to be with someone who makes you happy.  The only thing that drags the track down some are the lyrics.  They are straightforward and nothing particularly special in terms of phrasing this idea in a new way, but it’s likely they went with simple lyrics to convey a simple mood.

As for the video…WTF?!  I saw the ending coming by the second chorus, but it’s still out of nowhere considering the mood of the song.

Lyrics:
Always smiling by your side
We don’t care bout anything
Come on baby
You got me crazy tonight

Always smiling by your side
We don’t care bout anything
Come on baby
You got me crazy

I opened the door and came outside
The sun that looks at me is so jealous of me
Every step I take to go see you
I see you flickering before me

Wherever we are, whatever we do
More than anyone else, we’re
Havin’ a good time in the sunshine

I think it’s time
We feel each other’s hearts
That we haven’t known before

Always smiling by your side
We don’t care bout anything
Come on baby
You got me crazy tonight

Always smiling by your side
We don’t care bout anything
Come on baby
You got me crazy

Always smiling by your side
We don’t care bout anything
Come on baby
You got me crazy tonight

Always smiling by your side
We don’t care bout anything
Come on baby
You got me crazy

Your voice rides the wind
And whispers in my ear
If I follow it, I see you with your arms open
If I run to you, you’ll hug me

Wherever we are, whatever we do
More than anyone else, we’re
Havin’ a good time in the sunshine

I think it’s time
We feel each other’s hearts
That we haven’t known before

Always smiling by your side
We don’t care bout anything
Come on baby
You got me crazy tonight

Always smiling by your side
We don’t care bout anything
Come on baby
You got me crazy

Always smiling by your side
We don’t care bout anything
Come on baby
You got me crazy tonight

Always smiling by your side
We don’t care bout anything
Come on baby
You got me crazy

Wherever we meet
You shine more than anyone else
You’re my sunshine

I think it’s time
For you to look at my heart
That is as clear as the morning

Wherever we are, whatever we do
More than anyone else, we’re
Havin’ a good time in the sunshine

I think it’s time
We feel each other’s hearts
That we haven’t known before

Always smiling by your side
We don’t care bout anything
Come on baby
You got me crazy tonight

Always smiling by your side
We don’t care bout anything
Come on baby
You got me crazy

Always smiling by your side
We don’t care bout anything
Come on baby
You got me crazy tonight

Always smiling by your side
We don’t care bout anything
Come on baby
You got me crazy
