LOSER

BIGBANG is back and they are making it worth the wait for all the fans who had been anticipating their comeback since their ALIVE album and world tour in 2012. They started with a trailer for their MADE world tour which was followed by their concert in Seoul last April 25 and 26 where they sang Bae Bae and Loser for the first time. Since then, fan videos and pictures had been posted continuously on the Internet, and just within three days of releasing the official videos for these songs, it has reached almost 7 million views for Bae Bae and 9 million views for Loser! The views will definitely have grown more by the time I finished this post.  Amazing! ^_^

Loser had made an impact on me the first time I have heard of it even though I do not understand much of it aside from its title, but the soulful voices of each artists combined with the arrangement and composition of the song surpassed the language barrier. I was hooked.

When the music video was released, it gave me a better perspective of what the song was all about so I got curious and researched for its English translation which made me love it more. This song conveys what most of us had been through or might be going through:  Failures and struggles. It acknowledges one’s fault, shortcomings, and disappointments. It exposes one’s vulnerability.

Being a big fan of Bigbang, this song even made me more proud of how each members evolved into great artists whose individuality remains intact and magnified when they collaborate as a group. I am looking forward to see them perform again in Manila this July! ^_^

Loser was composed by Taeyang and Teddy and written by T.O.P, G-Dragon, and Teddy.  Bae Bae was composed and written by Teddy, G-Dragon and T.O.P. Both songs were arranged by Teddy, a well-known rapper, song writer and in-house producer of YG Entertainment.

English Translations from POPGASA.com:

LOSER

Loser, loner
A coward who pretends to be tough
A mean delinquent
In the mirror, you’re
JUST A LOSER
A loner, a jackass covered in scars
Dirty trash
In the mirror, I’m a

Honestly, I’ve never fit in with the world
I was always alone
It’s been a long time since I’ve forgotten about love
I can’t listen to hopeful love songs anymore
You and me both
We’re just sad clowns, tamed and scripted
I’ve come too far
I’M COMING HOME
I wanna go back
To when I was young

At some point
I started looking at the ground more than the sky
It’s hard even to breathe
I hold out my hand
But no one holds it
I’m a

Loser, loner
A coward who pretends to be tough
A mean delinquent
In the mirror, you’re
JUST A LOSER
A loner, a jackass covered in scars
Dirty trash
In the mirror, I’m a

It’s a cycle of girls and mistakes
Love them for one night
And hate them when morning comes
Can’t own up to it
Because of my selfish pleasure
Everything is being ruined
Can’t stop this dangerous full speed run
Now I have no interest, no fun anymore
I’m standing alone at the edge of a cliff
I’m going home
I wanna go back
To how it was before

At some point
I’ve gotten scared of people’s eyes
I’m sick of crying so I tried smiling
But no one recognizes me
I’m a

Loser, loner
A coward who pretends to be tough
A mean delinquent
In the mirror, you’re
JUST A LOSER
A loner, a jackass covered in scars
Dirty trash
In the mirror, I’m a

I curse the blue skies
Sometimes I wanna lay it all down
I WANT TO SAY GOOD BYE
When I stop wandering at the end of this road
I hope I can close my eyes without regrets

Loser, loner
A coward who pretends to be tough
A mean delinquent
In the mirror, you’re
JUST A LOSER
A loner, a jackass covered in scars
Dirty trash
In the mirror, I’m a

LOSER
I’M A LOSER
I’M A LOSER
I’M A LOSER
