I guess nobody noticed that this topic has a poll, so let's bump it :lol:


For me, the album was kind of 'mediocre pop', but that's because I'm used to the billions of layers and 'experimental stuff' in H!P songs (meaning that H!P songs often have lots of elements from different genres of music, unexpected instruments, or lots of big sounds; whereas SNSD is closer to being simple bubblegum pop). So SNSD songs seem very simple to me compared to them. Still, I've listened to the album in a row many times, grown to like it and stuff. But I must admit that I wouldn't listen to most of these songs if I didn't like the girls and their voices so much. :O I know that most fans aren't like me though!!

Actually, one of the cutest albums I've ever heard. Is a typical pop album but hey, all the songs are good, I just find one of them horrible but that's just me...all the songs are really nice  :heart:

Lol, all votes are for G'G in the poll.

I must say, having the album, and having listened to it alot, I still find G'G to be my absolute favorite. I mean what could ever beat Åridago nuliji maraijo. Sum sum pudding pie wota gooo? :D

All in all, i find it to be a really good popish debut album. Arrangements and music is really nice. They even managed to get all girls in there vocaly (9 people singing on most of the songs (all?) which are like 3-4 mins long is quite alot). And most of all excellent choice between low tempo songs (Tears), mid tempo stuff (Honey) and fucking hardcore rock my socks songs a'la G'G. Especially if looking at say KARA's debut album The Last Blooming which was like 80% really really slow songs which made it just dull in the long run. On top of that G'G sounds seriously fresh and really well worked. Just a good crisp and nice debut album. A bit of everything for everyone maybe? Just like with the girls. XD

Girl's Generation is a great song. I actually like this version more than the original.

Other than G'G the other songs to me borderline from really good to really boring.

I say all the tracks arranged by kenzie would go to good with some better than others

My least favorite track on the album is "Tears". Not bad enough to bring me to tears, but enough to bring me to sleep >_>

I could almost say the same thing about "complete", but I really liked the vocal harmonies.

I also thought 7989 did not fit well into the album. It has this really cool Jazzy acoustic sound but I prefer to skip it usually.

It's a very traditional "pop" album, like something out of the late 90's :lol:

What made the album sound as good as it did I think is that they got 9 girls with different voices and vocal ability to sing, and they all sing well in it. Cause really if this only featured one singer and the rest as background, I probably wouldn't be listening to it that much, even if the one singer was the lovely Taeyeon >_>

I really like the album. I think the songs are just plain good pop songs. Very girly too, makes me feel like a high school girl :lol (even though I was never that girly...). My top 3 tracks (not included the ones from the single) are Baby Baby, Tinkerbell and Merry-Go-Round. Also love Girls' Generation, it's a great song to introduce the album with, start to like Kissing You and Complete now. And I like to listen to Tears for a change sometimes (I like Yuri's singing in it).

I like all the songs in the album but if I were to choose my top, absolute song, it would be Baby Baby. Into the New World was their first song I ever listened to and I liked it right away. But after listening to Baby Baby, it became an instant fave.
 
Honey, Ooh La-La, and Kissing You are my stress-reliever songs at work. XD

I like Pop songs but I like R&B an Hip Hop more
and I never thought that SNSD could make me love Pop hahaha

i love the album at 1st i kinda find it hard to like sum of the songs like Kissing You and Baby Baby then 7989

but the more i listened to the songs i begin to love it

so yeah I love the album,and i think ppl in korea kinda bored with the same kind of songs (R&B) over and over and over again (even this kind of song still very strong is korea) so SNSD really bring Fresh Songs in Kpop industry,that could make ppl smile when listening to their album

So I was wondering if the lyrics to the album have been translated to english.
I've been singing along to their songs and really have no idea what I'm singing about. XD
Romanizations would be nice too but I could easily google those.

^ aaaahh hahaha XD
u only want the translation rite?

o1. Girls' Generation

The selfish grabber who said i was young
For some reason he told me he loved me and kissed me today
My face got red and my shocked eyes got big
My nervous lips were blue like the waves
I could not say anything because i was so shocked
While i was thinking whether i should get mad or laugh

Don't make fun of me because i'm young. I couldn't talk because i was shy.
Don't make fun of me because i'm young. Its just words that pass by.

The selfish grabber who said i was young

Don't make fun of me because i'm young. I couldn't talk because i was shy.
Don't make fun of me because i'm young. Its just words that pass by.

Even your small flaws
seem to move me
ohh I look like a fool but i don't know
I'm going where my heart is going

Don't make fun of me because i'm young. ohh You don't know me.
Don't make fun of me because i'm young

Don't make fun of me because i'm young (Don't make fun of me). I couldn't talk because i was shy.
Don't make fun of me because i'm young (Don't make fun of me). Its just words that pass by.

Don't make fun of me because i'm young (You don't know). I couldn't talk because i was shy (I couldn't talk).

o2. Ooh La-La!

Once a upon time there lived a girl who was abused by her stepsisters and stepmother.
She had a nice heart & name, Cinderella
One day she was walking around in the ball
She met the prince and fell in love at first sight.

Looking around a handsome prince
I'm the princess, everyone is congratulating us

*Ooh La-La I am still young
I believe in your existence, my one and only prince.
Ooh La-La I want to become your princess
I want to become a princess that is right for you
Yes Ooh La-La

Ooh la-la, ooh what a feeling

Do you remember always one two, three two, four two matching the line
The nice dwarfs and happy Snow White walking
When she eats a poisoned apple and is near death
A prince on a white horse gives her a sweet kiss and wakes up the sleeping princess

Looking around a handsome prince
I'm the princess, everyone is congratulating us

*Ooh La-La I am still young
I believe in your existence, my one and only prince
Ooh La-La I want to become your princess
I want to become a princess that is right for you
Yes Ooh La-La

Then the princess went to the prince's castle
in a carriage and lived happily ever after.
I don't have a prince on a white horse in my life yet
but i'm sure he is somewhere
While i wait until the day i meet you
I won't loose my dream

*Ooh La-La I am still young
I believe in your existence, my one and only prince
Ooh La-La I want to become your princess
I want to become a princess that is right for you
Yes Ooh La-La

Ooh La-La I am still young
I believe in your existence, my one and only prince
Ooh La-La You will find me too
I will be here until the day we meet
I saw Ooh La-La

o3. Baby Baby

Filled with nervousness and gratitude
In a pretty wrapper (I want to give it to you)
No you will laugh because of a absurd imagination
A fool that keeps holding it off (It sounds like me)
Your smiles you stole my heart
It really doesn't make sense

*Please baby baby baby You are inside me
You came in so deep, afraid you might see, my bashful confession
baby baby baby going to you cautiously
In a small voice i will only let you hear

I will convey my stuffy and sorrowful heart one day
The gifts that pile up everyday (I want to give it to you)
No you won't like it
You don't think of me more then a friend (Why are you doing that?)

When i see you laugh i want to steal you.
I really want to let you hear it.

Please baby baby baby You are inside me
You came in so deep, afraid you might see, my bashful confession
baby baby baby going to you cautiously
With my eye laugh i will go into your heart

You probrably know i can't come forward
I see that you are coming to me
Hug me with your warm arms

*Please baby baby baby You are inside me
You came in so deep, afraid you might see, my bashful confession
baby baby baby going to you cautiously
In a small voice i will only let you hear

Please baby baby baby You are inside me
I just want to fill it with a special love
baby baby baby now you're
my pretty girlfriend, i won't be jealous of anyone.

baby baby baby

o4. Complete

Pretty season passing a fragrant road
My cautious footsteps i'm nervous
When you come closer while smiling for me
It feels like all the happiness in this world is mine.

When i woke up due to the late afternoon sun i laughed.

Its still my far future but i hoped it wasn't my dream then
Just one love I hope the road we walk on is the same

Good morning Your morning call that wakes me up everyday
It feels like the morning we share together

You are more sweet then the pretty candy you give me

I have changed a lot due to time but i won't let go of your hands
Just For love Its going to be your last love forever so lean on me

Your love is so special to me
Oh It's true while looking at each other i want to be by your side

I have changed a lot due to time but i won't let go of your hands
Its going to be your last love forever so lean on me

To make my life complete
You make my life complete

o5. Kissing You

I feel happy with your joking kiss
Even if you have a cute & innocent expression
Without knowing like a lady my lips
are calling your name

We walk while matching our feets, holding our hands
I want to lean on your shoulder and tell you.
"Thank you I Love You I will only give you happiness" Kissing you oh my love
Tommorow you are lying next to me in the warm sun
when i sing you a love song you smile
The sweet & happy words "I Love You"

Kissing you baby~ Loving you baby~

When i kiss you while closing my eyes
my cheeks turn red
I have already fallen for you, in my chest
you can hear my heart beating

*We walk while matching our feets, holding our hands
I want to lean on your shoulder and tell you.
"Thank you I Love You I will only give you happiness" Kissing you oh my love
Tommorow you are lying next to me in the warm sun
when i sing you a love song you smile
The sweet & happy words "I Love You"

I Love You I Love You I Love You only as much as heaven
I will always make you happy and smile
I'll promise you a special girlfriend

You stay next to me & become my eyes,
I will always be in your arms

*We walk while matching our feets, holding our hands
I want to lean on your shoulder and tell you
"Thank you I Love You I will only give you happiness" Kissing you oh my love
Tommorow you are lying next to me in the warm sun
when i sing you a love song you smile
The sweet & happy words "I Love You"
Sweet words "I Love You" Happy Words "I Love You"

o6. Merry-Go-Round

Mary take me to the merry-go-round...with this beautiful sound, sing my song for you

One day i nagged you when you were busy
we went to the amusement park at night
when i rode the white wooden horse
you laughed at stubborn me

If this is love, you should love my flaws too
I'll promise i won't be greedy

*The place we went together, its my merry-go-round
My memory is still fresh
With this appearance, always be next to me
He's like merry-go-round

Where are you, i waited a long time. The glow was pretty in that alleyway
The sunlight that reflected on your shoulders was very warm

If this is love, don't say you are sorry
You just have to hug me with no words

*The place we went together, its my merry-go-round
My memory is still fresh
With this appearance, always be next to me....
He's like merry-go-round

How long do i have to go to grab you
I want to follow my childhood dream, this time while holding you

*The place we went together, its my merry-go-round
My memory is still fresh
With this appearance, always be next to me....
He's like merry-go-round

*The place we went together, its my merry-go-round
My memory is still fresh
With this appearance, always be next to me....
He's like merry-go-round

o7. Tears

The white starlight, the black darkness
is pushing me away from far
When i look at you with my smile
I always become farther apart

*When i call you, when i look for you
Come to me as the wind
Hug me in secret
So i can feel you
You are always next to me

The blue sky has dyed you.
Before you find out about my love
Don't feel bad for me, if you understand my tears
you will be able to laugh too

* When i call you, when i find you
Come to me as the wind
Hug me in secret
So i can feel you
You are always next to me

Love~ Like my song is my wind forever
Do you hear it too?
You leave so many memories
I only think about you

When i call you, when i find you
Come back to me as the rain
Whisper to me under the umbrella.
I loved you more
so i am hurting more

LaLaLa

How can i convey it to you
My heart that really loved you
How is my love

over there, like that
That love I will now...I love you

o8. Tinkerbell

Its starting like the dreams i had everyday
Now i come to know all the lights in the world

Everything has a scent because of you
* I want to give all the dreams you want I'll be your Tinkerbell in the sky
Like the first snow in winter like the sun in early spring
I fly to you with mysterious magic

When the Witch of Ice World from fairy tales
blows cold wind in front of us one day

Promise me. We can overcome it together.

**I'm not scared of anything when i'm with you.
I'll be your Tinkerbell in the sky
Like the ocean in summer like the sky in late fall
Its a dream that starts when the blue light sparkles

The things i want to do with you are increasing
I'm worried the time we have is not enough

*I want to give all the dreams you want
I'll be your Tinkerbell in the sky
Like the first snow in winter like the sun in early spring
I fly to you with mysterious magic

I'm not scared of anything when i'm with you.
I'll be your Tinkerbell in the sky
Like the ocean in summer like the sky in late fall
Its a dream that starts when the blue light sparkles


o9. 7989

Why are you unusually laughing like that today?
Is it that person I introduced you to?
That happy man that makes you laugh

Why are you looking unusually sad today?
I’ve been laughing like this for an hour already
Don’t frown I’m really worried

I spent so much time with you
Do you still not know?
You still don’t know me..

Is there any such dummy
Don’t you know yet?
I’m standing with my two arms wide open

Where are you going with that fast-paced walk?
I want to walk a little bit slower
This special time I’m spending with you
I don’t want it to go quickly

Where are you trying to go with that slow-paced walk?
I want to go visit more places
I only get to see you once a week
Please hurry

I spent so much time with you
Do you still not know?
You still don’t know me..

Is there any such dummy
Don’t you know yet?
Open your arms and..

It must be so
It must have always been like this
We always stood together
And looked in different directions

I’m always looking in one direction
But you aren’t aware
Can’t you see me

I spent so much time with you
Do you still not know?
You still don’t know me..
Is there any such dummy
Don’t you know yet?
I’m standing with my two arms wide open

ah cool thanks!
Is there none for the last two songs?
They never seem to include them since they were on the single, but it's still part of the album :/


Anyways
That is possibly the cutest album I've ever known lyrics wise :lol:

My favorite song message wise is probably 7989, it's really nice thought a bit sad.
Kissing You is another favorite, it's too damn cute. XD

But what disturbs me is that I know the meaning behind the title now XD . It's birth years. Taettae is 18 and the guy is 28 :o
