thekoreanjjang: Anways now onto Oh! vs. Roly Poly?
Thekoreanjjang: Wow another tough one.
KpopEncarta: Roly Poly was one of the few songs that I just instantly liked and lived up to expectations
Thekoreanjjang: I know what you mean. Oh!’s lyrics built up their song so that it couldn’t fail in Korea. All the oppa fans were going crazy for them. Although I really enjoyed this song, I gotta mark off a few points off based on their marketing strategy.
KpopEncarta: and the cheerleeder outfits
Thekoreanjjang: Yeah. I mean of course the fanboys would enjoy it, T-ara tried to reach out to all age generations with Roly Poly. I like that ambition and their retro style was a throwback to classic old school korean music. I really like Oh!, but I felt the popularity of that song was highly influenced by clever sm manuevering of their lyrics.
KpopEncarta: Manuevering or not any other group put it out, it wouldn’t have done as well
Thekoreanjjang: Can’t argue there. So whats your verdict going to be?
KpopEncarta: The thing I’ve always liked about Oh is that the vocal distribution is more balanced compared to some of their other songs
Thekoreanjjang: One thing I enjoyed from Oh!’s mv was how they naturally influenced viewers to follow this song with Run Devil Run at the end. It’s a nice track to follow up Oh! with.
KpopEncarta: back to the tape: vs
Thekoreanjjang: Jessica sure looks great as a blonde.
KpopEncarta: yea she does. lol tae pulls out her whistle and tells them to go out
Thekoreanjjang: Man…I forgot how much I loved this song. I don’t listen to my old playlists nearly as much these days. Jeez 47 million views..
KpopEncarta: lol yeah… Starting roly poly now
Thekoreanjjang: Haha same here. This beat also sounds nice following Oh!. lol I feel like I’m sampling fine wines right now.
KpopEncarta: all 3 do. gee vs bo peep
Thekoreanjjang: Seriously time to make a new cd…
KpopEncarta: igcfu vs genie are perfect matchups.
Thekoreanjjang: This is tough!
KpopEncarta: your verdict?
Thekoreanjjang: This was prob the closest out of the previous two, but I gotta give it to Oh!
KpopEncarta: I give it to Roly Poly for me
Thekoreanjjang: Roly Poly almost brought me back at the end, but Oh! is just a great song.
KpopEncarta: visuals are pretty close, but end of the day I’d rather listen to roly poly
Thekoreanjjang: haha so I have SNSD 2-1 in songs, but T-ara 4-3 in members. Then you have T-ara 2-1 and snsd 4-3 in members. Its all tied up going into the dance rounds!
