Song of the Week: VIXX – Eternity

Aagh!!!! This is what I was waiting for! I’m so excited for Eternity. It absolutely had to be my Song of the Week!

Not only did VIXX’s 4th single, Eternity, come out this week, but so did the video!

And the MV is a marvel. It’s beautifully shot, in a gorgeous room full of cogged wheels and gears. I’m a sucker for a beautiful time piece or clock tower.

And the scenes with the memories of the girl and the disappearing visions are also wonderfully captured in a sun-kissed, but sparse and sad, room. Screenshot_2014-05-22-08-42-17

It contrasts nicely with the dark, stormy reality of VIXX’s nightmare room.

And now they’ve started promotions!

Blue-haired Ravi and my favorite suits from the MV? What more is there in life?

I didn’t want to showcase Eternity as my Song of the Week until I saw their comeback stage. The choreo is just so amazing! The music video was beautiful, but didn’t show enough of the intricate, clever choreography.

The reverse dance. Right after this move, Leo and N throw out amazing scorpions.

The wiggly wave dance. Yes, I replayed this endlessly.

I need to see a practice video or all-dance version of the MV. I NEED to! I will not rest until I see the whole dance! (I’m a little obsessed with dances, if you didn’t notice by now). This point-dance lesson will just have to do for now.

I can’t even explain to you how much I love this song. It’s more mainstream than I’m used to with VIXX, but it’s great! It’s kind of electronic, pop-house, trance-light, dance-type music, and reminds me a lot of my other favorite boy group, The Wanted. In fact, I could easily hear The Wanted singing this song, and it would be a perfect fit.

The song is about a love that should have lasted an eternity, a love that–for him–transcends time and space. Because the girl left him, he is now in a state of denial, believing she is still with him. He lives in a constant dream, thinking of her, until he wants to end his nightmare with the sleep he can never wake from. He basically wants to die because he can’t let go of her. Pretty cheery, huh?

Anyway, VIXX does drama well. They also do concepts well, and while this song is not as highly stylized as Hyde or Voodoo Doll, VIXX still manages to convey the concept of going back in time to when she loved him too.

They convey the time concept with their gorgeous, sad voices, amazing point-dances, and fabulous acting in the MV. The tailored suits don’t hurt either. Sigh.

Here are some more of my favorite shots from the MV.

  1. Favourite moments? All of it! Wow! This song blew me away! If your forcing me to choose… 1. Ravi doing the wiggly wave dance, 2. Hyuk! and 3. N’s acting…

    Favourite dance? Wiggly wave dance! Yes I’m that shallow. Ravi is my bias after all) I also love the moves at the beginning with Ken seeming to magically rise up and Hyuk’s dance where he’s moving his arms like a clock.

    This really was a great MV!

    1. Ugh! I forgot to screen cap the Hyuk clock arm dance! I liked that one too! This song is pretty amazing, huh? And so many good dance moves! But the wiggly wave dance is my fave too. Hehe. And Ravi is your bias?! I feel bad for you. He just about killed me, so I can imagine you! πŸ™‚
