[Details about the song ‘The boys’]
‘The boys’ is a song produced by one of the biggest 3 producers – Teddy Riley (also the producer for Michael Jackson), specially made for SNSD. With strong and powerful drum and rhythm, ‘The boys’ is an urban dance song filled with Teddy Riley’s unique harmony as well as original and futuristic sound.
Starting from the production stage, it aimed to push SNSD up to the world stage. The song no longer follows the ‘hook’ song style, where the hook of the song is repeated. (Songs like Gee) Instead, it is a song that arouses anywhere around the world. The refined beat, sound and melody are hence the focuses of this song.
The lyrics, written by Yoo Young-Jin, talks about SNSD who are the representatives of the female population. It encourages the men and carries the message “All boys and men in this world, stand up, be brave and confident and make your dreams come true”, which makes the music more perfect.
