Music Monday | TWICE — MORE & MORE

Music Monday | TWICE — MORE & MORE

Hello my BAYOG luvlies~ Yes, it’s Monday again! So I’m back with another Music Monday post. Sorry, I’ve been meaning to do other posts too…but just haven’t had the time to dedicate to writing those… I promise I do have non-music stuff coming up though! Anyway, I’m gonna just keep it brief and simple today (for real)! I’m still trying to keep to a summer-esque vibe/theme to the Music Monday posts. Today’s track is TWICE’s ‘MORE & MORE’ . I’ve just been in the mood for something more upbeat, and honestly, I was in just the mood for tropical house~

It’s not the first time I’ve done TWICE for a summer Music Monday post. Last time I covered [‘Dance the Night Away’]. I won’t go into the artist background since I already did so in that post~ What I will say is that while ‘Dance the Night Away’ is cute and fun, ‘MORE & MORE’ is definitely more my style~

Artist: TWICE/트와이스
Song: MORE & MORE
EP: MORE & MORE
Genre: K-pop, Tropical House, EDM, Dance, Synth Pop
Language: Korean
Origin: South Korea
Release: June 2021

Anyway, ‘MORE & MORE’ was the lead single from TWICE’s ninth EP of the same name. It dropped June 1, 2020. It was written by Mr. JYP (Park Jin Young) himself as well as BIBI. It was composed by Zara Larsson, Julia Michaels, Justin Tranter, and Uzoechi Emenike. JYP is iconic, and you can say he’s one of the innovators and founding fathers of K-Pop as we know it. Y’all also know I love BIBI. I talked about her in my [‘Meu Tempo’ Music Monday post]. I’m actually slow in just having recently learned that she was behind the lyrics with JYP. I found out from watching her and Tiger JK’s appearance on [Jessi’s show]. You can hear her [sing a snippet of it as well]. The lyrics are basically about emotions that are intensifying during a relationship. As for the track itself, it’s a tropical house track with an instrumental chorus. Y’all know I LOVE tropical house. I literally have a [BAYOG playlist] for that as you can remember from my [K-Pop x EDM( Deep House/ Tropical House/Moombahton) playlist post]. It’s just a catchy and fun track that gets you dancing along to it. Again, ‘Dance the Night Away’ was a fun track too. It was more on the cutsey and bright side, and some slightly more like silly and easy-going? But I like do prefer ‘MORE & MORE’. Not just cuz of the tropical house sound and vibes. I also like that it sounds more mature with a different kind of colorful vibe and sound to it. I also just like the different elements in this song more. By the way, there is also an official English version of ‘MORE & MORE’. It was a single that dropped on the same day as the EP.

Artist: TWICE/트와이스
Song: MORE & MORE (English Version)
Single: MORE & MORE (English Version)

Language: English

Like ‘Dance the Night Away’, ‘MORE & MORE’s is upbeat, fun, and colorful. However, it does carry more mature vibes to it than ‘Dance the Night Away’. It’s colorful, and fits that tropical vibe and aesthetic. It also has a bit of a dreamy vibe and look as well. We see alot of colors and patterns too. The majority of the outfits are like colorful bohemian vibes.

The choreo isn’t one of my top favorites, but I do actually like it. It looks like a lot of fun, and pretty doable; Especially the key point. It seems like it’d be a fun workout that’s not too complex. It’s pretty simple movements, just alot of them. That makes it difficult for my goldfish memory brain. Still, it’s a fun dance.

As for the lyrics, it’s basically about intensified emotions during a relationship. Y’all can also find the lyrics for the English version [here].

[Verse 1: Nayeon, Mina]
I know I want it
I’m not gonna try to please you anymore
‘Cause I deserve it (deserve it)
I won’t be worried if you dislike me for a moment
‘Cause I know you (I know you)

[Refrain: Tzuyu, Momo]
Try to avoid my eyes (Hey)
Try to hide your feelings (Hey)
Try to run away from me, no, no
When you open your eyes again (Hey)
When you think about me (Hey)
You’re gonna be mine again

[Pre-Chorus: Sana, Dahyun, Chaeyoung, Jihyo, (Jeongyeon), (Nayeon)]
You’re gonna say more, more, more, more, more and more
I can’t stop, more, more, more and more
So one more time
I wanna have more, more, more, more, more and more
(Don’t stop more, more, more and more)
(So one more time)
More

[Chorus: Dahyun, Tzuyu, Mina, Momo, (All)]
Can’t stop
(More and more)
So one more time, time
Hate to stop
(More and more)
So one more time
[Verse 2: Jeongyeon, Chaeyoung]
Do you feel me?
Do you believe that you are the one for me?
Only for me (only for me)
You don’t have to say these cheesy things
‘Cause you know me, you know me

[Refrain: Sana, Jihyo]
Even if you keep covering your ears (Ah)
Even if you push me away (Ah)
Even if you wander far from me (far away), no, no
When I call you again
When you hear my voice
You are gonna be mine again
Yeah one more time

[Pre-Chorus: Sana, Dahyun, Chaeyoung, Jihyo, (Jeongyeon), (Nayeon)]
You’re gonna say more, more, more, more, more and more
I can’t stop, more, more, more and more
So one more time
I wanna have more, more, more, more, more and more
(Don’t stop more, more, more and more)
(So one more time) More

[Chorus: Dahyun, Tzuyu, Mina, Momo, (All)]
Can’t stop
(More and more)
So one more time, time
Don’t wanna stop
(More and more)
So one more time

[Break]
(More)
(More)

[Bridge: Dahyun, Chaeyoung, Nayeon]
I’m naturally selfish, sorry if you didn’t know
Let me first apologize ’cause I want you more more
Don’t need your opinion, gonna steal your heart
You will fall for me, you can’t say no no
I am a stray cat today for sure
I’m here to get you, just you wait
Don’t go too far, come to me again, come come
Yeah one more time (More)

[Chorus: Chaeyoung, Tzuyu, Mina, Nayeon, (All)]
Can’t stop (you’re gonna say)
(More and more)
So one more time, time (so one more time)
Hate to stop (more and more)
(More and more)
So one more time, More

Anyway, that’s it y’all. Everyone in BAYOG are ONCEs (TWICE stans), especially the bros. I also just really love tropical house. So tadaaah. I do have to say this is one of my favorite TWICE songs. I think at the beginning I wasn’t too sure, but the tropical house vibes got me. It’s just super catchy and fun. Anyway, what do you all think? Y’all fans of this track? Or do you prefer something cutsey like ‘Dance the Night Away’, or something more chill like ‘Alcohol-Free’? Honestly, today’s Music Monday post was between ‘MORE & MORE’ and ‘Alcohol-Free’, but I was in the mood for an upbeat tropical house~ Don’t forget to check out my [BAYOG K-Pop Deep House/ Tropical House/Moombahton Playlist] if y’all like this kind of track. Let me know what y’all think and your recommendations in the comments, my socials, or join us on the BAYOG discord server! I am working on things when I can, and trying to finalize other stuff. So hopefully I can get around to posting more varied content for y’all again~ I do have fun news though. BAYOG is trying to do podcasting again. Perhaps y’all will hear me join some episodes too! I still have some other exciting news, but trying to finalize that before officially sharing it. Anyway, I hope y’all are having a wonderful day and safely enjoying your summer~ Stay safe, take care, and have a wonderful start to your week fam~

Stay safe and healthy out there, y’all.

BLACK LIVES MATTER

AS A GROUP OF BIPOC, BAYOG strongly stands with Black Lives Matter. We are all too familiar with the racism that we, our friends, and family have faced on a daily basis. Every life is precious. However, as BIPOC, we also recognize that black people are a group of people that face extreme racism and at a higher risk for their safety. 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 and understanding. Make sure to have those conversations. 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].

STOP ASIAN HATE

As an Asian-American, racism, xenophobia, and hate crimes against AAPI isn’t new. It’s always been around. Unfortunately, misinformation and the pandemic has caused an insane surge in racism and xenophobia. There has also been an insane rise in hate crimes. More recently, we’re seeing a surge of hate crimes against the Asian elderly. Particularly in the California and New York areas. Some cases even leading to injuries and even death. The sad thing is that many cases do not get alot of attention, or are just looked passed. It breaks my heart and is cause for concern since it affects our community. Since some of the BAYOG Crew (including myself) are Asian-Americans ourselves, I wanted to use our small platform to help in anyway. Hate, racism, and xenophobia is an ugly thing. We’re friends, in the same community, and against the same social injustices. So be kind and let’s fight these things together.

You can also check the following for more information, ways to help, & to donate:

Please report hate crimes at Stop AAPI Hate:

Volunteer
You can see if your community has a volunteer chaperone or neighborhood watch/patrol program.
Some examples:

Volunteer at any other organizations that provide assistance to Asian-Americans; Particularly the elderly.
Some examples:

  • Heart of Dinner @ NYC, New York| https://www.heartofdinner.org/
    An organization that supports local businesses and provides meals and care packages to the Asian elderly in NYC.
