Cross Gene Noona You

Cross Gene has brought megawatts of energy into their “Noona, You song and music video.  This song will have you dancing from the get-go.

Story

This is quite the entertaining video.  You have the Cross Gene boys attempting to rescue a lady but encountering all sorts of game themed obstacles.  From punching walls to barrels like Donkey Kong, there’s no end to the silly little traps they encounter.  Because they took too long, the lovely lady ended up releasing herself and beating up the box headed clowns.  Turns out the boys weren’t needed after all!

Costumes and Set

Cross Gene’s costumes in this music video are rather unique, yet simple.  Each of them seems to have something totally different going on, but they all have some sort of slash of bright color in one place or another.  Considering the ‘game show’ feel to it, it was rather appropriate to have the single bright color.  I thought the jacket choices were interesting as well.

The set was well done and simplistic.  The game show looking area was run down but still had the warehouse feel, albeit a booby trapped one, but still.  The area where the lady was being held being covered in plastic did help to set the kidnapping stage for the storyline.

Song

“Noona, You” is a mash up of multiple different genres of music.  You have 80’s Rock, Hip-Hop, Dubstep (before the last chorus), R&B, and a heavy dose of nice beats that really tie everything together.  From the very beginning of the song, there’s just a continuous stream of energy.  The chorus is repeated frequently and is one of those ‘fist pumping’ tunes that I can pictures crowds of people jumping up and down to.  The song is so energetic, it passes by quick.  It feels like you just started the song by the time it finishes and you’re left with a huge smile on your face.   When it comes to high energy, peppy songs, Cross Gene definitely has it down to an art.

Lyrics

Lala lalala

Noona, you, don’t play around
Yeah you
I’m a man too
Don’t even talk about other guys
Because you’re my girl

Noona, noona
Why don’t you know?
You fool, you fool
Why don’t you know?

Lala lalala

Even if you date other guys
You look better next to me

No matter how much I tell you
You still think I’m young

I keep telling you but you keep laughing
When will you see me as a man?
Where are you looking? Look at me
Hey you over there, my girl, it’s you noona

Noona, you, don’t play around
Yeah you
I’m a man too
Don’t even talk about other guys
Because you’re my girl

Don’t ignore me, don’t make those useless attempts
(Hey hey hey)
It’s no use
(Hey hey hey)
Don’t play hard to get

Lala lalala

The girl I always talked about is you
But noona, you’re a fool

Because of you
I can’t fall asleep

When you lean on me baby girl
I know what you need get it girl
Noona count on me
I’ll be right there
so think about it baby

Noona, you, don’t play around
Yeah you
I’m a man too
Don’t even talk about other guys
Because you’re my girl

Noona, you
Look at me
Stupid, it’s you
Look at me in the eye

Noona, you, don’t play around
Yeah you
I’m a man too
Don’t even talk about other guys
Because you’re my girl

Don’t ignore me, don’t make those useless attempts
(Hey hey hey)
It’s no use
(Hey hey hey)
Don’t play hard to get

Noona, noona
Why don’t you know?
You fool, you fool
Why don’t you know?

Lala lalala
