Before the Great Summer is Gone
“Party” is the lead single off Girls’ Generation’s fifth Korean album Lionheart. This fun-loving 2015 tune was written by Jo Yoon Kyung. She has written lyrics for numerous S.M. Entertainment artists like BoA, NCT 123/Dream, SHINee, Red Velvet, f(x), SUPER JUNIOR, LOONA, and EXO. Kyung wrote a song that envisioned the perfect summer party when writing the lyrics: having fun in the warm weather, having a blast with friends during a night out or a summer party, and just chilling. The vibe found in both the lyrics and the melody has been compared to the fun summer synthpop anthems of Katy Perry.
With its lively guitars, perky synthesizers, and catchy hooks, “Party” by Girls’ Generation is such an addictive song that will make listeners get up to dance. It was named as one of the best summer songs in 2015 and you can hear why! Even though summer is slowly coming to an end, listeners can keep it alive with “Party”!
