One song. Every day. Alphabetical order.
Pinocchio (Danger) (from Pinocchio / Hot Summer – 2011)
I feel like repackage Hot Summer often steals the limelight from Pinocchio, but this track is far more quintessentially f(x). The stomping electro beat takes no prisoners, nudged along by the group’s rhythmic vocal. The pre-chorus unveils a gloriously staccato drive before segueing into an equally catchy, equally funky chorus. This isn’t a particularly melodic song, but its hooks are sharp. This may be sing-talk at its most sing-talkiest, yet the entire track is designed around this approach.
Every element in Pinocchio’s arsenal is forged to build upon the song’s indelible groove. It has an alien-like texture, abrasive but never harsh. Touches of rhythm guitar and bright, retro synth give it splashes of color, coupled with an exciting bridge that vaults the energy to a different level. This is the kind of girl group dance track that only SM Entertainment could produce.
~ Rest in peace, Sulli. We will forever be grateful for the incredible music and spirit you left behind ~
