Why I'm making this thread? Because CMB came on shuffle again, it's been almost 2 years and I'm still not tired of this song. And I think this song is one of the best songs EXO have overall, BUT I think it was heavily underappreciated by fandom, the reasons (in my opinion) are these: 1) It doesn't match the rest of EXODUS album and it's feel 2) Expectations after Pathcodes were TOO DIFFERENT. We were expecting Pathcode theme so much that when funky song with purely dance MV (the only song with MV) came out it was disappointment for many. But hey, guys, this song is AMAZING. I'm not really good with words, but everything starting from instrumental to vocals is just great in this song, the only thing that is not that good is cringy English, but even this became iconic. And I noticed that more and more people after time passed recognize CMB as one of superiors EXO's songs. ----- In instrumental, I'm soooo in love with that tun._.tun-tun-tun-tun._tun-tun-tun-tun (lmao, do you understad me?), also that stringed instrument on the background. Ah, I can't describe it T^T Just listen to instrumental attentively, it's really great. It has many layers, but it doesn't sound messy, the production level is just amazing, everything flows so well in that song Vocals. AH, I was screaming about it even 2 years ago - this is the case that even dance pop track can showcase vocal skills af a singer, I don't think we can say that this is a karaoke song. Especially slayed our usual trio ChenBaekSoo - they are not just singing, they bring character and color to their lines, they perform them with their own style. There is also a lot of harmony in CMB and personally my favorite part is the bridge which starts with Baekhyun (2:07), then Chen, then harmony of Chen and D.O., and then D.O. and epic nal dasi taeeonage HAEEEEEEEE (tun-tun) YEEEEEEEEEAH! *Goldfinch explodes from epicness* with fitting "tun tun" in instrumental, THIS PART IS A BOOOOOOOOOOOMB Note: actually Kai sings here too (high range adlib after Baekhyun and before Chen), Kai even did it live a few times, but sadly I can't remember which performances it was. Kai really works hard baby<3 The progression of this part is everything I love in music LMAO Another notable vocal parts (time stamps according to lyric video I posted above): -Chen on 0:22 -Xiu's and Suho's "adlibs" mixed with Baek's vocal part 0:15; 0:18 -"NO" "NO" in the background during Kyungsoo's part starting on 0:32 -Iconic BABY GIIIIIRL (slay dat English, Soo) 1:30 -Chen's part on 1:46 that later naturally flows into chorus, this part somehow slays me -1:58 - chorus by Tao, just because I love Tao and miss him -goat's bleats in rap part - iconic Music Video and dance. Debatable. For me, this is great dancing video, because it has replay value and boys looks SUPER GOOD here. My favorite parts: -Dance in car 0:35 -Lay slaying our existent with his visual (and this shade of blonde looks on him so freaking good) 1:00-1:13 -my favorite dance move (clapping your shoulder lol) 1:21 -Xiumin slaying with visual 1:22 -1:58 Grooving Kyungsoo (but It was better in concert VCR honetsly lol) -CHEN PLAYING WITH CAMERA ON 2:09 oh my gooood you see his smyle& his hair and eyes ;rehlmvseurhkiverjhvl,hfdg,ksfdg Please, love Call Me Baby right!
