Shake It

Saturday, May 20, 2017



I have lived long enough but apparently I am still too young to understand what happiness really is. However, I never think that I am too old to celebrate excitement with a dance. Once upon a night, I danced with my significant other in our room. We danced to a reggae song. Nothing particularly special happened that night, but we just felt like dancing. Hence our bodies were moving along the rhythm and melody. That night, I felt happiness. Well, I guess happiness cannot be defined easily but we can clearly feel it at certain moments. In love and romance relationship too, there are times when we feel the excitement because of falling in love. Falling in love, at its best moments, is shaking up the inside of us. Falling in love, at its greatest moments, is waking up the butterflies in our stomach. Falling in love, at its happiest moments, is making us dancing with all of our body and soul. This is about falling in love at its most cheesy yet beautiful moment. This is about falling in love at its most corny yet wonderful moment. This is when falling in love makes you dance.

This is a dance to tempt you only. I’m blasting my charm into your heart. Just by our fingers that are brushing each other, my heart pounds. My heart is shaking.” –SISTAR, Shake It

This song that would make you dance into the rhythm is titled “Shake It”, performed by Korean famous girl group, SISTAR. This electro dance track was released on June 22nd 2015 as the title song taken from the group’s third mini album (fifth extended plays) of the same name. Written and composed by Duble Sidekick, Hot-D, and HOMEBOY, the arrangement of the song was done by Glory Face. An official music video for “Shake It” was premiered on MBC Music on June 19th 2015. The music video starred SISTAR’s fellow artist, Kang Kyun Sung of the vocal group Noel. A dance practice video was also released on June 24th 2015 via Starship Entertainment’s official YouTube account.

It is not happening all the time but there is this time when love feels so good until the point you want to dance with all of your body. It is not always happening but there is this time when love makes you feel so excited until the point that you might lose yourself to the rhythm. And yes, when people are crazily in love like that, they tend to do everything just to get the attention of the subject of their affection. They are willing to try anything just to tempt that person and blast their charm towards that person. “This is a dance to tempt you only. I’m blasting my charm into your heart. Just by our fingers that are brushing each other, my heart pounds. My heart is shaking.” And yes, being in a crazy love like that, people are experiencing this electrifying feeling inside them that makes their heart shakes. They tend to feel this kind of tingling connection from the affection. “Very fun and smart, shake it. Our entire body is electric, two of us, shake it. We’re seriously connecting. This place is on fire. When I move, we found our place.”
It is not happening every time but there is this time when love is full with excitement like a blooming spring with many flowers around you. It is not happening every day but there is this time when love is full with passionate feeling like your heart cannot stop dancing. And yes, when people are being crazily in love like that, they tend to just enjoy the moment of happiness they have. They are willing to do all the things to cherish the moment of joy and affection they currently experience. “Shake it for me. This electrifying feeling makes me dance. Right at this moment, shake it.” And yes, when people are in love like that, they say that it brings out the best out of them as they want to show their best self: the most beautiful one, the sexiest one, and the most attractive one. At time like that, they just want to let it all out with nothing to lose. “Shake it, oh shake it, shake it up, shake it for me. Shake it for me my baby, shake it for me my baby. Everyone come together and dance, just shake it, let’s dance, a little hotter, completely wilder.”
When people are being crazily and passionately in love like that, the most important thing of all is that they want to share the excitement and electrifying feeling with the subject of their affection. They want that person to be able to feel what they feel. Hence they are able to dance together. Hence they can feel their hearts are shaking together. “Baby, love me. Love me now. Don’t you know that my heart is shaking? So let’s dance. Just shake it. Let’s dance, a little hotter, completely wilder. Make it louder, again and more, make it louder. Keep shaking me, amazingly shake me, shake it all night with me. Shake it baby.” And yes, when people are being in love like that, they want the feeling to last forever. They want it to stay like that and even more exciting. They want to keep the sparks. They want the feeling to live forever. Since they understand that it might not happen, they just want to enjoy the present moment instead, while it lasts. While they got it, they want to dance all night with the passionate and crazy love they have right now.

Been living for years together with my significant other makes me wonder about the feeling I felt back then when I met him for the first time. The funny thing is: I occasionally find myself having the same excitement that I had the first time I met him. That is when I realize that I am in love with this person; that I am falling in love with him every day, and that I am being in love with him every time. Though there are times when love feels like a warm coal rather than a hot fire, there are times too when I feel the same passionate and crazy love for him that I felt during our first months together. There are times when my heart is dancing every time I see him. There are times when my body is shaking every time I am with him. Having this relationship for this long, I understand that there are phases and stages in relationship. However though, I would like to enjoy and cherish every moment, whether it is hot or cold, whether it is passionate or calm. So when you are at the hot and passionate stage for now, just enjoy it. Love is indeed a game; so it is okay to have an exciting start.

Baby, love me. Love me now. Don’t you know that my heart is shaking? So let’s dance. Just shake it. Let’s dance, a little hotter, completely wilder.” –SISTAR, Shake It
