Oh! My God

Oh! My God – Girl’s Day

I think yesterday i sounded like came off as though i was ragging on this song, which couldn’t be further from intention. I like this a lot and it’s exactly as imperfect, youthful, bratty and un-envelope pushing as it needs to be. Well maybe it could be more. Here’s the video if you can stomach it.

Oh! My God

Oh! My God – Girl’s Day

Also making their comeback a few days ago were Girl’s Day with this song. I don’t know much about Girl’s Day, they being one of the million recently (since 2010) debuted girl groups that i just can’t keep up with. The phenomenon caught on, the entertainment companies pushed and keep pushing these groups out exponentially, so now i guess we look forward to the bubble burst. Until then we get to watch more and more hopefuls who have given so much of their lives up to this dream playing it safe and contrived in a world that only has place for the success of just a handful of them.

Girl’s Day seem to have done ok and have established themselves and a fanbase that will continue to see them do ok, but maybe only ever ok. The scene (yep…) needs a new group to come in so inspiriting and so fearlessly. Not bland cutesy, not phoney bad girl, not even necessarily something new – just something good, something not playing safely into an undemanding field. Something that speaks for a generation, not something that is determined by an old man committee to speak for a generation whose taste is also determined by an old man committee.

A group with such a similar name to another with a song that apes so much T-ara’s Lovey Dovey won’t do. More Sunny Hill less… everything else. No. Maybe. And even then, they need the variety and reality show support and exposure already in the hands of the more established groups, and their spots on the music charts as well. It is so crowded in there. There’s a reason so many tears are shed when groups receive their first wins.
