DA B-E-S-T SLAY✪ continue to top dem charts + translation of what their song really means

20130213 sistar19

SISTAR‘s subunit SISTAR19 has maintained an impressive hold on several music charts.

Ever since the release of their single back on January 31st, “Gone Not Around Any Longer” has been claiming the top ranks on important charts like Melon and Mnet. Although it has recently given way to SHINee‘s newest song “Dream Girl” around the 19th-20th, it continues to hover near the number one spot.

It seems that SISTAR19′s hard work, glamorous performances, as well as their individual talent has been rewarded with popularity!

In other news, this month has seen a strange trend in the music charts in general, as the upper ranks have more or less remained the same. Aside from SISTAR19′s “Gone Not Around Any Longer”, Bae Chi Gi‘s “Shower of Tears“, Huh Gak‘s “Monodrama“, and Leessang‘s “Tears” have all maintained a position in the top 5 ranks throughout February.

~*~*~*~*Original piece by Hellicoptajuuce*~*~*~*~

I have been listening closely to their masterpiece "Gone, No Longer here" and i have come to realize the song is in fact not about a break up, it's a cleverly disguised track about your favs!!!! The song is filled with relationship shizzle but lbr if they were blatant about it, it wouldn't have been fun.
Let's take a closer look!

This verse is a cover for the song, by placing it at the start it makes you get into the mindframe that this song is about a breakup!
In my bathroom your toothbrush was here then gone
Your strong scent was here then gone
I just wanted to say that I love you
But your number is disconnected now

The pictures in the frame were here then gone (your fav no longer doing relevant endorsements, they aren't in your photo frames no mo')
Fallen hair were here then gone (seseang fans aint collectin' dem hair no mo', could also be talking about Jessica/Taemin's and/or your fav's weave)
Walking on the road with an empty mind
As tears keep flowing down (SLAY✪ is so sick of seeing their slaying faces everywhere that they wish they weren't slaying so hard that your favs will at least be promoting milk to children again)

I can’t breathe now that you’re now longer here (talking about their winnings, they just can't believe how much they are slaying to the point where they can't breathe)
I can’t even stay because you aren’t with me (talking about after their encore performance yall bitches left to do some promo to try and slay)
I am slowly dying but you’re not here
Anymore anymore anymore (talkin' about how they placed 2n after Shinee but how your favs are still not on the charts)

they really want to have competition again yall
I can’t smile because you’re no longer here
Because you’re not here
I hate seeing myself break down
I have nowhere to depend on now

In this verse, Slaystar are being sarcastic, as you can tell by the way Bora is halfassing it, they dont really mean it
Why am I withering away like a fool everyday?
Like a darkened flower, without you, I just
Keep saying it’s painful, sad, alone
I fall asleep again crying

I hate to see myself get drunk and stumble (drunk on money, stumble on full length fur coats, swag swag yoloyolo hashtag slaying dem charts)
Can’t fight with you even if I want to now (mentioning dem charts again, DAMN they na$ty)
Because you’re gone, because you’re gone
I got no one to talk to now (dem show sections where they do short interviews)

same as before
I can’t breathe now that you’re now longer here
I can’t even stay because you aren’t with me
I am slowly dying but you’re not here
Anymore anymore anymore

I can’t smile because you’re no longer here
Because you’re not here
I hate seeing myself break down
I have nowhere to depend on now

Because you are not around any longer
Please come back to me

congrats to them! too bad all their 'earnings' are going to that chinese company who's buying their position for them.

You stan Girls' Day. Everything you say is invalid.

at least they have a fanbase who cares

do your faves?

I'm glad a less....k-poppy song than expected is getting so much attention.

One month of slaying the charts omg I feel the butthurt coming from netizens/fans of other idols:

1. [+111, -13] The song is just Hyorin's song

2. [+110, -22] It's because there's nothing else to listen to lately

3. [+90, -10] I liked Ma Boy better

4. [+88, -10] Can't they give Bora more parts?

5. [+77, -12] What else is there to listen to?

6. [+58, -5] Journalist, be honest with us... There's nothing else to write about, is there?

7. [+59, -7] SISTAR is really big on the media play lately.. ㅋㅋㅋ

8. [+63, -12] Isn't this the group that manipulates the charts with a company in China ㅋ They're only #1 on Melon ㅋ And I'm pretty sure SHINee has 10 times more fans than them, which is fishy

9. [+63, -16] Can't they stop promoting already, I'm sick of the song.

10. [+57, -12] The chart is able to be manipulated, I saw it on TV.

11. [+50, -7] I think B.A.P. and Kim Jin Ho are more pathetic... They made their comebacks when there aren't any other new songs on the market and yet they still haven't recorded #1 yet ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

12. [+57, -16] Is this song really that great? Isn't the song only considered great because people are watching the dance on TV? I don't watch TV so I never watched them perform and only bought the digital song but... I really couldn't stand it. It might not be my style but I don't really consider it a song worthy of such praise.

Not saying Sistar is doing it, but it's really possible to manipulate digital charts?
es2pido 24th-Feb-2013 05:39 pm (UTC)
It is but they need a HUUUGEEEE amount of money (self sufficed or sponsored) to last that long.
miamaimi 24th-Feb-2013 06:21 pm (UTC)
yeah, all the ways I can imagine to manipulate dc are expensive as fuck. it'd make no sense to do it this long >_>
allegsiseu 24th-Feb-2013 05:27 pm (UTC)
There was no need for that netizen to shade b.a.p just cause they were angry...
swhyeon1991 24th-Feb-2013 11:11 pm (UTC)
Lol mte nhf the BAP shade. But wow I'm flattered they expect them to get #1?? ^__^
supplanter 25th-Feb-2013 08:17 am (UTC)
It's pretty insane, isn't it? I'd be thrilled and amazed if they did as well this year as block b did last year
swhyeon1991 25th-Feb-2013 08:27 am (UTC)
I know, honestly I'm more of flattered than insulted because they actually expect B.A.P to get #1. The fact that they set any expectancy on them already makes me think at least they are not considered as 'another basic flop' they don't even bother checking out tbh if that makes any sense lol.
supplanter 25th-Feb-2013 08:43 am (UTC)
I'd be more flattered (by extension of course) if I didn't just think it meant those ppl had a poor grasp on kpop reality. XD But it probably does mean that b.a.p is one of the few 2012 rookies they even know exist, which is something. (OTOH, who is Kim Jin Ho.... ^^;;;;;;)
toshi830 24th-Feb-2013 09:30 pm (UTC)
but bora should have more parts
epona 24th-Feb-2013 05:26 pm (UTC)
i love bora but they should've just made this a hyorin solo
toshi830 24th-Feb-2013 09:30 pm (UTC)
essentially what it is anyways
pikapika217 24th-Feb-2013 10:11 pm (UTC)
jjoeyjjang 26th-Feb-2013 03:21 am (UTC)
sistar has always been "hyorin and the Shady Girls (featuring Bora sometimes)" so idg why everyone is so offended

the_erotomanic 24th-Feb-2013 05:29 pm (UTC)
SLAY✪ <--- that should be trademarked.

congrats to the girls!
gee 24th-Feb-2013 05:30 pm (UTC)
I haven't bothered to listen yet just because the title annoys me.
supplanter 25th-Feb-2013 08:18 am (UTC)
Just imagine there is additional punctuation in there? Like, "Gone: Not Around Any Longer", maybe? Or "Gone (Not Around Any Longer)"?

glad i'm not alone in hating the title.

hyorin my queen

also seriously i really still like this song, apart from mildly embarrassing choreo, everything is GOLD
es2pido 24th-Feb-2013 05:42 pm (UTC)
Where's the poll OP?
hellicoptajuuce 24th-Feb-2013 10:33 pm (UTC)
op@me it was meant to be in there but i guess it didnt work, o wel
melizah 24th-Feb-2013 05:52 pm (UTC)
In my bathroom your toothbrush was here then gone
Your strong scent was here then gone

Made me think of Kai and his mad teleportation skillz.
The song has grown on me, but I still don't feel their choreography.

istalkalert 24th-Feb-2013 06:32 pm (UTC)
im in the unpopular opinion, cause i dont like the song at all =/
flumes 24th-Feb-2013 06:47 pm (UTC)
idt u r and anyway it sucks
flumes 24th-Feb-2013 06:47 pm (UTC)
who is SLAY✪?

"as you can tell by the way Bora is halfassing it, they dont really mean it"

idt that's why bora's halfassing it.
