Spazzing with Seomates: Speak Now
Hey Seomates! This a short experimental segment I’m calling “Spazzing with Seomates”, where my Seomate friend Melody and I will gush, rant and rave our hearts out about something Seobaby-related. And what better time to spazz than over the FLAWLESSNESS that was the “Speak Now” performance? If you have trouble stomaching fangirls, I’d suggest not to read past this point 🙂
Melody: Leda! Have you seen our baby Seohyun performing Speak Now on Romantic Fantasy as part of SNSD’s comeback?
Leda: Yes! Our goguma goddess has finally graced us with a full cover of Taylor Swift’s “Speak Now”, and she did a spectacular job performing live.
Melody: You’re right! She previously sang a short cover of this song on KBS’ Big Brothers back in September 2011. But this time, she comes back with a complete cover with a much better grasp of the song. Her guitar skills and pronunciation have greatly improved.
Leda: The performance was a part of a 1 hour special that aired on MBC on New Year’s Day for SNSD’s latest album and single, I Got a Boy. There were many exciting performances, but what better gift could we receive as Seomates than this solo cover?
Melody: LEDA. Do you realize how boring we sound?! This is not the true us. We are spazzers! Wait, let me rephrase that..we are…SEOMATE SPAZZERS. This is not how we do it! WHERE ARE ALL MY CAPS?!
Leda: But but…. this is supposed to be… quality journalism!! We have to… and…. LKDKAKFJLKDJFLA;JDFL;AJDL;FJD I CAN NO LONGER CONTAIN MY FEELINGS WHAT IS THIS GLORY WHAT IS THIS PERFECTION. AN ANGEL FLOATING AROUND ON MY SCREEN, THAT’S WHAT!
Melody: YES LEDA. LET IT ALL OUT. OUR GODDESS HAS COME BACK TO GRACE OUR SCREENS WITH HER HEAVENLY VOICE AND MUSICAL PROWESS. WHAT IS LIFE WHEN OUR SEOBB IS PERFORMING AN ENGLISH SONG WHILE PLAYING THE GUITAR?!??
Leda: And can we take some time out to appreciate this woman’s dedication? I mean we all know she plays the piano beautifully and has practiced for many years. But she has only been learning the guitar for what? 2 years? And here she is, actually playing the instrument live. The acoustic guitar is plugged into a wireless transmitter, so it’s not just for show.
Melody: Our beautiful baby has grown so well. She is just so musically gifted! Her dedication is definitely something to look up to. It just proves how passionate she is *sniff sniff* And do you see how beautiful she looks in that pink dress?! It’s like she’s a little magical fairy…she’s beyond this world amazing!
Leda: SHE’S A GODDESS! But back to the song. Serious question here. Was I the only one thinking Seobb would never be the type of girl to “barge in on a white-veiled occasion”? Like who can imagine Seohyun shouting out “I OBJECT!’ in the middle of a wedding service?
Melody: It is definitely a very interesting song choice…Who knows, we might just be looking into this too much. For all we know, this could simply be her favorite Taylor Swift song. What do you think?
Leda: Eh, we’re reaching. She has sung rather racy lyrics in the past, so I think Seohyun puts the style of music before lyrical content. Remember her 2011 concert tour solo? “I want some huggin’ and some teasin, ‘And some muggin’ and some squeezin’ And some… stuff like that there!” HOT! SIZZLE!
Melody: Wake up Leda! Let’s get back to the point…I agree with you, it seems like a totally Seohyun thing to do; focusing on the musical genre before the lyrics. However, I would think now that she’s a lyricist, she would also think about the meaning behind the lyrics. I wonder if she understands how “controversial” these songs are.
Leda: Is it just me or is she been looking a lot brighter and more confident lately? And her vocals continue to improve, which is what I love about her. She always strives to take her skills to the next level.
Melody: Seohyun has indeed improved a lot, both in terms of vocals and stage presence and I have never been more proud. I hope she will strive to bring us more amazing performances like this one. 2013 is a New Year for Seohyun and SNSD, so let’s see what they have to offer!
Seomates, did you all fall in love with “Speak Now” as much as we did?
