Not what I was expecting from that title, but it’s still good.

Fxxk It, the first of the last two singles from Big Bang’s tenth anniversary album, is the continuation of what we have seen from the group this time around.  A solid, mid-tempo jam that has enough thump to get you nodding your head.  The difference this time, though, is that there is a lot less of the electropop elements in the production this time around.  There are still odd one-off sounds (like phones ringing and horns beeping) that are a part of the mix, but they are far less prominent this time around.  The members do something that we don’t get from Big Bang very often due to the group dynamics–harmonize–and the solos pop with energy (which is to be expected).

Lyrically, Big Bang has almost always come with something a little more than what was expected from the average Kpop track.  This time, you see them dropping that more mature game and trying to sidle up to the women of their choice.  The theme isn’t new, but the way they put it is.  Strong metaphors and concrete imagery let you know what they’re thinking even though they don’t get explicit.  G-Dragon and T.O.P do a great job on their perspective verses and Teddy helps them fill things out in the vocal parts.  We also really like the fact that they took a Korean phrase that sounds really similar to English and used it for the chorus (just like Yoonmirae), making something that works in both languages.

Sidenote: Need a live stage with good choreo like…yesterday–especially if T.O.P is actually going to dance again.

Lyrics:
No I don’t wanna go too fast
Cuz nothing really lasts
I think I need some time
But I can’t get you off my mind

Bartender, I’ll start with the strongest one, please
After a few drinking straightly
They all look so beautiful
I want to hook them up
These ladies so loyal
And then, I found you for the first time
geez girl love me tender
I talk to you bravely
You’re offensive
It’s different with those unattractive girls over there
One light in the somber mood
It’s not a just thrill
Like a adolescence
From the way you look at me
My lips became parched
I’ve felt this thrill in a long time
I’m caught in the middle
Before this night has passed
I want to embrace you in my arms
Real love?
I think I wanna just
Don’t spend time thinking over, Hey
FXXK IT I Love y’all x 3
Girl I wanna get down
FXXK IT x 3
Girl I wanna get down
I want to find a thrill
Dried and sucked
I’m a captive of lots of others
But I’m escaping here, Papillion
It’s sick and tired
Beginning to frost a little
My hair is beginning to turn grey
It’s over being a bully
A hair of Casanova
I liked you who didn’t know about me
I’m a badass who gets easily bored with every girl
Even I grow old, I still don’t know about the love at all
Not good at cleaning up behind
A romance without sadness
A game without rhythm
You’re losing control
It’s Alto and Soprano which have different melodies
We will be broken up at the end
I’ll say flatly to the depraved dream, Eldorado
From the way you look at me
My lips became parched
I’ve felt this thrill in a long time
I’m caught in the middle
Before this night has passed
I want to embrace you in my arms
Real love?
I think I wanna just
Don’t spend time thinking over, Hey
FXXK IT I Love y’all x 3
Girl I wanna get down
FXXK IT x 3
Girl I wanna get down
You & me are riding a car together, ried
You’re drunk a bit
So let’s have a short break
Where should we go?
Baby, I sleep with only holding hands
But it’s obvious, honey honey
but I want it and you know it
FXXK IT I Love y’all x2
FXXK IT x 5
Girl I wanna get down x 3
FXXK IT I Love y’all x 3
Girl I wanna get down
FXXK IT x 3
Girl I wanna get down
