Mayday’s History of Tomorrow Review: 五月天 自传 派对动物 (Party Animal)

The first song from the new album 派对动物 (Party Animal) was released in May 2016. Initially, I thought this song was a little juvenile. However, after listening a few times, I  was hooked to the infectious tune.

I have to admit that Mayday is very successful with 派对动物 because my 4-year-old niece is singing it non-stop. Over the past few years, I have tried to “inculcate” her with Mayday’s music and values. She rejected their music videos and showed more interest in Hi-5 and Disney. Finally, 派对动物 broke down her defences to Chinese rock.

派对动物 is a typical fast tempo song in Mayday’s repertoire of concert party hits like OAOA and 伤心的人别听慢歌. The chorus has many easy sing-along English phrases like “let’s go party party all night”, “many many good times” and “lonely lonely goodbye”. When I first heard the song, I was rather amused by the rather awkward phrasing. Despite some flaws, this electronic beat infused song will definitely get the fans jumping on their feet and screaming “party animal”!

 

入不敷出
水电和房租 成绩和任务
这泡沫般人生 是那么辛苦
Hey 派对动物 是否麻木

In this song, Mayday wants to awaken all the “tamed” party animals who have been numbed by the monotony of everyday life.

 

你忘了笑 还忘了能哭
本性被驯服
花两亿年 进化却没有进步

The “tamed” party animals seem to have forgotten their animalistic desire and emotions. Despite two billions years of evolution, the human race has evolved but humanity seems to not have progressed much.

 

人生难得糊涂 偶尔脱轨演出

Sometimes life can be a mess so it is fine to take a break from our “daily performance” in front of colleagues, friends and even family and just party like party animals!

 

我们都有觉悟 要疯狂到日出
我们 天生 就是 派对动物

So be “conscious” and not go through life mechanically!
We are born to be party animals!
Life is a party! Let’s party!

 

Side note: I think all fans tend to unleash their “animal instincts” during Mayday concerts. So see you soon at their next concert and let’s all party like party animals!

无论你是猫咪老虎 麻雀蝙蝠
都要骄傲 都要大步
