Music Monday|Twice — Dance The Night Away

Music Monday|Twice — Dance The Night Away

It’s Monday again, BAYOG Fam! Y’all know it’s time for another Music Monday post! We’re continuing the summer themed Music Monday posts~ I’m going to try to keep it as short as I can because your girl is still dead inside…lol Anyway, I figured we’d go for kind of a bright, cutesy, and happy vibe today. So we’re going with Twice’s “Dance The Night Away”!~ I’m sure Nick( @rokutsu ) would be thrilled cuz he’s a ONCE.

Anyway, let’s start off with some quick background info! Twice is a third-generation idol girl group under JYP Entertainment. Again, JYP Entertainment created and managed well known artists such as: [g.o.d], Rain, Wonder Girls, 2AM, 2PM, Miss A, Got7, Day6, Stray Kids, Itzy, and JYP himself. Twice was formed under a TV program called Sixteen in 2015. They debuted in October 2015. The line up consists of 9 members: Nayeon, Jeongyeon, Momo, Sana, Jihyo, Mina, Dahyun, Chaeyoung, and Tzuyu. Momo, Sana, and Mina form the Japan Line (aka the members from Japan).. While Tzuyu is from Taiwan.

I’ll be honest, I don’t really follow Twice. Y’all know I didn’t kind of stopped paying attention around the beginning of the third generation idols. However, over the past 2-3 years, I found their songs through some random dance play vids. So I started getting interested in some of their songs. I don’t know much about them. I just know Momo is dating Super Junior’s Heechul, Jihyo is dating Kang Daniel, Tzuyu was hella popular and the “IT Girl”, and Nayeon has a psycho German sasaeng (stalker) “fan”. Other than that, I don’t really know much about them at all. I listen to some of their songs, and I think they got some bops. I also recognize that they’re currently one of the top girl groups right now. However, I’m not invested enough to consider myself a ONCE (Twice’s fandom). Nick is totally a ONCE though.

Artist: TWICE/트와이스
Song: Dance The Night Away
EP: Summer Nights
Genre: K-pop, J-Pop, Pop, Bubblegum Pop, EDM, Dance
Language: Korean
Release: 2018

Anyway, today’s summer bop is “Dance The Night Away”. It was the lead single from their Summer Nights EP that was released in 2018. I just found out [Wheesung] wrote the lyrics. He’s an OG K-R&B artist that I really liked before when he was with M Boat/YG Entertainment years ago. He was also asked by Craig David to sing the Korean version of [Insomnia]. Wheesung is also known as [Ailee’s] [mentor]. It’s a summery bubblegum pop x EDM track. It’s got some groove and bounce to it with the bright horns, the bass, and blaring synths. The track also has fun and cute vibes to it. Overall, it definitely screams youthful and summer bop. There was also a Japanese version of the track too that was released in March 2019 on the #TWICE2 Japanese album. I’ll be honest, I didn’t really care for the track when it first dropped. However, it did end up growing on me. I don’t particularly love it, but I don’t hate it. I can still jam to it, and I recognize it as a fun and cute summer bop.

DANCE THE NIGHT AWAY

Original Korean version
Japanese version

The MV is cute, colorful, and bright. It was filmed in Okinawa, Japan. In the MV they’re basically stranded on an island. They’re making the best of the situation, exploring everything, and just enjoying their selves as they sing and dance.

If you wanna have some fun
Don’t let go of this special happiness
That’s like the salty air
One two three, let’s go
Let’s go dance like flying to space
Hey! Let’s dance the night away

Let’s dance the night away
One two three, let’s go
Scream so loud they can hear you across the ocean
Let’s dance the night away
Dance the night away
Let’s dance the night away
Dance the night away
Let’s dance the night away

Choreography

The choreography isn’t like one of my top fav choreos. However, I do find it really cute and fun. It also definitely fits the song and the summery vibes. Like they even have a part that’s like when you’re swimming. What I like about the choreo is that it’s not an overly complicated or difficult. It’s not a strenuous choreo that will leave you exhausted either. It’s just a relatively simple and just fun choreo. It’s pretty easy enough for anyone to do, I think… At least compared to most other dances anyway.

Hope you enjoy the track, y’all~ I know I posted alot of more tropical house and deep house summer tracks. So I figured I’d switch it up with a cutesy, bright, and happy track. While it’s not my favorite TWICE track, it is a fun summer song with a cute and fun choreography~ Are you a ONCE? What’s your favorite TWICE track? Stay safe, stay healthy, and take care guys!~

Take care y’all. Please stay safe and take care of yourself. All jokes and fun aside…please, please, please, pleaaaase always wash your hands, practice social distancing, and wear a mask! I’m serious. Please take COVID-19 seriously. It truly is a matter of life and death. It’s something that needs to be taken seriously. It’s not just about the death of if you or someone you know gets it, but it also heavily affects those left behind. There are also aftereffects for those who are able to get through COVID-19. Be responsible. Be safe. Take care y’all. Have a wonderful day.


BLACK LIVES MATTER

AS A GROUP OF BIPOC, BAYOG strongly stands with Black Lives Matter. We’ve individually done several donations. Of course, donations to support the cause and support change isn’t the only thing needed. Support for the cause and change also requires conversation. Make sure to have those conversations. Aside from donating, I had several conversations with my family. I explained things to my parents, especially since some news stories were being reported inaccurately. I was afraid it’d be a bit difficult. However, as fellow BIPOC and human beings, it was a necessary conversation. My parents and grandma understand, and now stand on the same page regarding BLM as well. Please remember to be an active supporter, be it through donations, sharing information, and/or conversations and speaking up.

Keep it up fam!

If you can, please consider donating. I’ve donated more than once as well. For one of my donations, I donated through the BTS ARMY x BLM project. I recommend that if you’re unsure of where to donate. This is because the donation will be split amongst several different non-profit organizations. Of course, you can also choose a specific organization(s) if you wish as well. You can find that [HERE].

Stay strong. Fight racism, brutality, injustice, and bullshit. Don’t lose sight of the goal. We’re witnessing and being a part of history. Be allies and make sure change happens. Once again, BLACK LIVES MATTER.
