Hello, 안녕하세요, I’m back with issue 09 of ‘The Attic Playlist’! My name is Jiwon, and ‘The Attic Playlist’ is a series I have designed to introduce songs by musicians who are less popular to foreign listeners yet definitely worthy of recognition. In each issue, I will introduce five songs by different musicians. For every song, I will provide the full lyrics in Korean. Then, I will pick out a few lines from the lyrics that capture the mood of the song and provide a translation of them, so non-Korean speakers can also enjoy the meaning of them.
‘The Attic Playlist’ will be published once every two weeks.
This week’s theme
Summer is here! Sunrise is much earlier now than it was a month ago, and I often wake up because of bright sunshine. Other times, I rely on my alarm. These are songs that I have used as my wake-up alarm in the past. They are all soothing songs that could brighten up the start of your day.
This week’s playlist
1. 치즈(Cheeze) – 조별과제(Group Project)
2. 재주소년(Jae-Ju(Talented) Boy) – 팅커벨(Tinker Bell)
3. 데이브레이크(Daybreak) – 좋다(I like you)
4. 우쿨렐레 피크닉(Ukulele Picnic) – 알로하, 기분 좋은 인사(Aloha, a pleasant greeting)
5. 클래지콰이(Clazziquai) – Sweety
I hope you have enjoyed the playlist, and feel free to comment below if you have any questions or concerns about my translation. I would also appreciate words of encouragement! All the Korean lyrics are from Naver Music, and all the videos are from Youtube.
