San-E, “Mama Girlfriend”
For certain people, this song will bring about immediate thoughts of “Stacy’s Mom” by Fountains of Wayne: young guy hitting on an older woman. The translated title of San-E’s song seems to be a bit of a misnomer, though. There isn’t any mention of a girlfriend in the song, like there isn’t any indication that Stacy and the boy in Fountains of Wayne’s song are in a relationship (although it is suggested that Stacy at least has interest). This is why I decided to change the translated title from the song (“My Girlfriend’s Mama”) to what I’ve written here.
Regardless of opinions on young guys dating significantly older women, San-E’s song is an upbeat good time. His style reminds me slightly of Outsider, and since San-E did help out with Outsider for Rebirth Outsider, I don’t feel like that’s an entirely unjustified comment. I wish there was a music video for this song, but that right was reserved for the much more subdued “이별 식탁” (“Breakup Dinner”).
