We’ll give WINNER this; it’s one of the more appropriate uses of the island sound we’ve heard lately.

The lyrics for this one are lot better than Love Me Love Me, but some of that has to do with the overall sound of the track being a reflection of the mood and theme.  The total sum of the lyrics is pretty simple, but the lines that are here give the track that extra bit of something that helps make it stand out against other songs of this type.  With a visual that has them enjoying the end of a beautiful day on an island with beautiful women, you could easily see this song going into some semi-sexual territory (especially with the make it go bang lines), but this has a much more romantic vibe than some of the English lines and the happy, bright production would make you thing.  This also works to help the overall reception as it just doesn’t come with the pressure that a songs like this could easily have.

The vocals here are great.  The subtle harmonies and background adlibs makes it a really joy to listen to and the lead vocals are never flat and just make the song overall.  It’s interesting to listen to this in comparison to Really Really and see how much this group didn’t phone it in for this track.  Considering the similarities, they could have easily made the two tracks sound alike in terms of their vocals and the fact that they didn’t is a testament to them.

We’d be on a lyrical island if it weren’t for pop!gasa

Lyrics:
Baby, let’s leave together
Put your phone on airplane mode
If I’m with you
Wherever we are, it’s a deserted island

Come come on ma
Come on ma girl
If you keep hesitating
Don’t worry
All the things you’re afraid of
I’ll make that go bang
b-b-bang bang

I’m am arc above the horizon, just for you
If you’re by my side, that place is treasure island

I’ll save you from the prison of gray buildings
Just rest on the sand under the blue sky

Let’s go, ISLAND
Let’s go, ISLAND
With the waves over there
Come to me, go all in, into my embrace

Come closer to me
Closer to me
With the sun over there
Come into me, a hot goal-in

Let’s go, ISLAND
To our ISLAND

Under the palm tree over there
Let’s have a glass of champagne
I’ll be your ISLAND

Rather than the hot summer sun
I like your sunset smile
Like shaking a cocktail
I want to mix it up with you on the sofa

shimmy shimmy ya
shimmy shimmy ya hey
I wanna drive your smooth
Love handles skrrr skrrr
I’ll make that go bang
b-b-bang bang

I’m am arc above the horizon, just for you
If you’re by my side, that place is treasure island

I’ll save you from the prison of gray buildings
Just rest on the sand under the blue sky

Let’s go, ISLAND
Let’s go, ISLAND
With the waves over there
Come to me, go all in, into my embrace

Come closer to me
Closer to me
With the sun over there
Come into me, a hot goal-in

Let’s go, ISLAND
To our ISLAND

Under the palm tree over there
Let’s have a glass of champagne
I’ll be your ISLAND

Here, nobody knows knows
It’s our own island
It’ll get dark soon
So let’s light the fire

Here, nobody knows knows
It’s our own island
No need to be self-conscious
Let’s light the fire of love

Wuhohoh ISLAND
Wuhohoh ISLAND
Our ISLAND

Wuhohoh ISLAND

Under the palm tree over there
Let’s have a glass of champagne
I’ll be your ISLAND
