Midnight Sun- F.CUZ

Not much to say in the info for this, but the “Other Things” section should be interesting.

Lyrics: 4/5
The song is almost an internal argument the singer is having with himself. He repeatedly says the love is over and that they will forget the horrible person they’ve been dating. They however can’t erase them and beg them to come back. It bounces between the two quickly. Overall it is a pretty great song, I don’t think the rap (or speaking part, whatever) fits into it very well though…
Love will die/ such love will end/ I can endure it/ I will forget someone as terrible as you/ I want to forget you/ and erase you/ the cruel you/ I want it so bad/ I wanna go back to you

Dance: 5/5
This is my favorite dance for F.CUZ. It’s very precise and together, but that could also be it’s fault. There are no backup dancers, just the main 4, and with them moving in sync I’d say 85%-90% of the time it can make for a very repetitive video that won’t hold the viewers attention for the last part.

Story: NA
The set is an old manor, but beyond that there isn’t really a story. This MV was made to draw total and complete focus to the group members, with little distraction allowed.

Other Things
This is part of a “Final Throws” promotion for F.CUZ. That means this could very well be their end. “Jiggy” and “No One” promotions did not do very well for the group and so they were supposed to disband. They got permission from their company to try one last time, to avoid being labeled as a “Failure Group”. For this song in particular the thing they were most proud of is that no auto-tune was used, they are all singing as they would live. Well… I guess it’s good that they are showing off their vocals, but they should have been doing that from the start, it isn’t like they have a bad sound.

The big news with this one was the teaser, which was pretty steamy. It included, among other things, a shot of a hand (supposedly one of the members’) reaching down into one of the girls shirts. Well, that never appears in the MV, and neither do the other extremely controversial shots, so don’t worry. You get several shots of models that look totally strung out on drugs or something, and a few shots that kind of seem to hint at drugs (fire melting stuff over a drink), but it’s pretty PG, kids wouldn’t pick up on anything. There is no groping in this MV. The teaser served it’s purpose: getting attention for the group through shock value.

Personally I hope the group sticks to this style, it suits them better and they will stand out more as a group rather than just kind of blending in to all the others out there. Now if only they could figure out that to have a successful album you need to ACTUALLY APPEAR ON VARIETY SHOWS then they’d be guaranteed another album.
