Spotless Mind

Thursday, May 01, 2014



I don’t remember, I don’t know, did we love each other? I really don’t know, it doesn’t exist in my memory, did we break up? Who are you that you are crying in front of me? Who are you that you come into my arms?” –Jung Joon Young, Spotless Mind [translated lyrics]

Juara ketiga ajang pencarian bakat, “Superstar K Season 4”, Jung Joon Young, meluncurkan lagu debut yang diberi judul “Spotless Mind”, pada tanggal 1 Oktober 2013. Lagu ini merupakan prologue single yang dirilis sebelum album debutnya, “Jung Joon Young 1st Mini Album”, dirilis pada tanggal 10 Oktober 2013. Lagu ini kemudian menjadi track pembuka dalam album tersebut. Lirik lagu ini terinspirasi dari sebuah film yang dirilis pada tahun 2004, “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”, yang dibintangi oleh Jim Carrey dan Kate Winslet. Film drama yang memenangkan piala Oscar untuk kategori Best Original Screenplay ini berkisah tentang sepasang kekasih yang menjalani program penghilangan ingatan ketika hubungan mereka telah mencapai fase di mana mereka merasa jenuh di dalamnya, hanya untuk menyadari bahwa mereka saling mencintai dan membutuhkan satu sama lain.
“Spotless Mind”, just like what has been mentioned above, is a song about about someone who has forgotten about the one they love, yet they try hard to find about that person in every piece of their memories when they meet again. “I don’t remember, I don’t know, did we love each other? I really don’t know, it doesn’t exist in my memory, did we break up? Who are you that you are crying in front of me? Who are you that you come into my arms?” Even when the mind can lie, the heart can feel what’s beneath. Even when the mind has erased all the things about that person, the heart will lead to the truth behind. “I’m flustered by seeing your face for the first time and your tears. Don’t cry, those tears look too sad. I don’t know you, it’s my first time seeing you, I don’t know anything. But why is it like this? What are these tears flowing from my eyes?” When two people are destined to be together, no matter how forget they are, they will remember again. And starting all over new. Because sometimes it takes losing memories to understand how precious for having and remembering those memories. “It’s a sickness, I’m a patient, erase all the painful memories. I also don’t know myself, so there’s no way you will know either. It’s a sickness, I’m a patient, erase all the painful memories. I probably know you, I probably loved you a lot, that’s why I probably erased you.”

Tidak tanggung-tanggung, Jung Joon Young merilis dua music video (MV) untuk lagu debutnya ini, yaitu versi N dan versi S. Versi N, yang berarti North pole, menggambarkan absurditas yang bergejolak dalam benak Jung Joon Young, terkungkung dan terpenjara dalam pikirannya sendiri. Digambarkan dengan setting MV yang sepenuhnya indoor. It’s like how he deals with his own self and his own feeling. Sementara itu, versi S, yang berarti South pole, berkebalikan dengan versi N tentunya, menggambarkan dinamika kehidupan yang terjadi di sekitar Jung Joon Young, menghadapi kesendirian dan merasa kecil di tengah luasnya dunia. Digambarkan dengan setting MV yang sebagian besar outdoor. It’s like how he deals with his environment with his loneliness. “Spotless Mind” is a great choice for Jung Joon Young’s debut song because this rock ballad song successfully brings out his color as a rocker Rock n’ roll, baby!

It’s a sickness, I’m a patient, erase all the painful memories. I also don’t know myself, so there’s no way you will know either. It’s a sickness, I’m a patient, erase all the painful memories. I probably know you, I probably loved you a lot, that’s why I probably erased you.” –Jung Joon Young, Spotless Mind [translated lyrics]
