Winner aren’t “Fools” (Music Video Review)

Share
Responsive Image

Winner has released their latest album, Fate Number For and both title tracks, “Fool” and “Really Really“. You can’t ask for more when you’re lucky enough to get two title tracks from such a wonderful group!

Song

“Fool” starts off with beautiful vocals accompanied by a soothing piano.  Throughout the song, even when the beat picks up a bit, the piano is present.  The song has a strong ballad feel to it, but more of a soft, remorse ballad.

The vocals are soft throughout, but extremely powerful, especially as the song picks up.  I really enjoyed the hook of “I’m was a fool”, since it’s slightly different each time they sing it and usually accompanied by a slightly autotuned ending.

Video

This is a bit of a strange video, but it’s going to be fun to try and make sense of things.  The video starts with cute scenes of the boys and a beautiful young lady, but that later transitions into horrible, burning scenes and the lady with what looks like finger marks on her neck.  It almost feels like they did that to, especially when paired with the lyrics.

The masked ladies throughout the video were a tad creepy, but did provide that ‘haunting’ feel that went with the song pretty well.  Them being dressed in all white gave them a very angelic look, and is usually a color associated with the deceased; often times they’re dressed in white at funerals while others wear black.

I loved the motorcycle scenes.  They were really well lit and definitely unique.

Lyrics

English

They disappear before my eyes
All the sharp and harsh words
My impulsive self
No matter who saw me, they would say
I was a fool
Nothing is gonna change
Even if I’m sorry now
I know

You can curse at me, even that would be a waste of time
I want to at least hear your voice

Stupid bastard, foolish bastard
I know now that it’s all my fault
Stupid bastard, foolish bastard
I know now that it’s all my fault
Baby I was a fool
I was a fool

I said
I’m selfish, I’ve always been
I only think about myself
I think I’m crazy
The person who pushed you away is me
Oh I was a fool
Oh baby I was a fool
Nothing is gonna change
Even if I regret it now
I know

If I can see you once more
A last glimpse of you even for a short moment

Stupid bastard, foolish bastard
I know now that it’s all my fault
Stupid bastard, foolish bastard
I know now that it’s all my fault
Baby I was a fool
I was a fool

You’re radiating and you go far far away
I try to feel the scattered memories
I miss you every every day
Yes I know I’m late late
Come back to me like nothing ever happened Baby

You’re radiating and you go far far away
I try to feel the scattered memories
I miss you every every day
Yes I know I’m late late
Come back to me like nothing ever happened Baby OH

Stupid bastard, foolish bastard
Now I know I’m a stupid bastard

Fool
Stupid bastard, foolish bastard
I know now that it’s all my fault
Stupid bastard, foolish bastard
I know now that it’s all my fault
Baby I was a fool
I was a fool
