Kim Hyun Joong, After releasing “Break Down” earlier this year for commercial success, Kim Hyun Joong is back with a fresh new sound. How “Lucky Guy” fare? Not bad, not bad.
“Lucky Guy” is fancy, the attitude and chaos – the chaos of fun. Sounds like something out of an opening song sitcom of the decade of 2000, with the refining and production technology of 2011. The song is fun to listen, and instead of barraging listeners with all these fancy versions Auto-Tune and synth loops used in excess, it gives us real instruments playing real melodies.
The peculiarity of this song is very dependent on the instruments – guitar bold line and the drums of raw but clean and soft, but, surprisingly, the voice of Kim Hyun Joong do much for the overall effect too.
Let’s be honest. Hyun Joong has never been the best singer of K-Pop. That is easily be sung by idols, many, many others. However, he has always been consistently good, and sometimes has its good moments – and “Lucky Guy” is one of them. Her voice is bright and good contrast with the agreement, and keep the song going all over the place. All other elements of the song is so intense that if someone with a voice bigger, sharper were to sing, the song would be too much.
“Lucky Guy” starts simple enough, but another thing that attracts listeners is the rate of change of dynamics. No change every two seconds or anything, you’re still able to take in all the individual parts, but before you get bored, something changes, leaving the edge of your seat waiting for what will happen next.
The hook is also consistent with the theme that runs throughout the song – that sticks with you, but not too repetitive. This is a really hook you can hum to yourself, because you remember it and because it is humanly possible to sing without studio tricks luxury. And that’s what you can, and ultimately, make this popular song – the fact that other people can sing.
There is no question that technology has done things I never would have done otherwise, but as time passes, new developments will come, and what is new now will become obsolete in the near or distant future. What will transcend time and remain creative are songs, arrangements and strong melodies. And that is what “Lucky Guy” has – a strong and real, capable of singing the melody.
