Now Or Never

Now Or Never is included in CNBLUE very first Japan indie album, with the same title, Now Or Never. It was released in 2009.08.19. This album contains the songs that -I believe- will be forever remembered as their signature songs. Although they haven’t participated in composing the songs yet, their concert is not complete when the songs from this album haven’t been played yet.

Now Or Never is a decent song. Strong rhythm, very rock-ish, strong guitar, great voice from Yonghwa and Jonghyun, strong bass sound after guitar solo part. Yes, their chemistry starts from here… I like the guitar solo part, it sounds raw, but I like it.

The lyrics tell us about being strong, about moving forward, about self-confidence. It’s very simple yet it’s enough for a non-English speaking band. Everything is enough because it’s their very first song. Without this milestone, CNBLUE will never be as big as now.

I miss their indie days…

Through the day, through the night My selfconfidence was out of site
You came alone, came on strong And you change the things that fell so wrong
(She said) If you heading for the right direction If you’re ready, you can do it too
Gonna rise up to the right occasion Cause together we can see it through

Baby it’s now or never This time is right oh oh
I got a feelin’ it’s for good without a doubt oh oh
We are forever me and you Deep in your heart you know it’s true
Baby it’s now or never yeah Feel so right

Goin’ up won’t go down There’s know stopping us was livin ground

You can do what you do Not a thing I could deny for you

If you heading for the right direction If you ready, you can do it too
Gonna rise up to this one occasion Cause together we can see it through

Baby it’s now or never This time is right oh oh
I got a feelin’ it’s for good without a doubt oh oh
We are forever me and you Deep in your heart you know it’s true
Baby it’s now or never yeah Feel so right! feel so right! 

Baby it’s now or never This time is right oh oh
I got a feelin’ it’s for good without a doubt oh oh
Oh baby it’s now or never This time is right oh oh
I got a feelin’ it’s for good without a doubt oh oh
We are forever me and you Deep in your heart you know it’s true
Baby it’s now or never yeah Feel so right! Feel so right!
