1. Sad Memories (Intro)
Composer: Seungho / Arrangement: Park Se Hyun
MBLAQ’s leader personally composed and played the piano. Like MBLAQ’s name, absolute quality and excellence in musical instruments and composition. Skills which have been kept in the dark until now are carefully unfolded in this 1st full album.
Lyrics: Rado, Jean, Won Taek, Gilmi / Composer: Rado, Jin, Won Taek / Arrangement: Rado
This full album’s title track ‘Stay’ is the work of BEAST’s ‘Breath’ composer and singer-songwriter Rado and rookie composer Jean and Won Taek. Exquisitely combining electronic-based hip-hop rhythm and rock for MBLAQ’s new dance track, the melody is addictive the moment it is first heard. This song stands out as it shows each member’s distinct colours and vocals. Talented female singer Gilmi completes the song and raises the quality by participating in writing the rap.
Lyrics: E-Tribe / Composer: E-Tribe / Arrangement: E-Tribe, Lee Chi Woo
This song about dealing with sadness and pain is a Slow Urban R&B trendy track with a unique drum sound and sophisticated melody line. MBLAQ’s Black Music is different from other groups and can be felt in the track, the harmony in the chorus and sorrow in the bridge fully expresses the pain of parting between lovers upon hearing.
Lyrics: Jung Ji Hoon (Rain) / Composer: Jung Ji Hoon, Bae Jin Ryul / Arrangement: Bae Jin Ryul
Personally produced, composed and written by Rain, this song has an exciting rhythm which can be sung along freely. Don’t give up, get up again if you fall, the lyrics speak the message of hope.
5. Throw Away
Lyrics: Bae Jin Ryul / Composer: Bae Jin Ryul, Choi Ji Yeong / Arrangement: Bae Jin Ryul
A man who cannot throw away the woman he loves. This song conveys the message that when there is no meaning to love and obsession, throw the tired and difficult heart away and live.
Lyrics: Jean, Won Taek / Composer: Jean, Won Taek / Arrangement: Jean
Love is rusty means a straightforward way to work things out by voicing out about separating. The lyrics will linger around your mouth even if you only hear it once. The intro starts off with an Oriental line and gradually changes naturally. This strange feeling transforms it into an experimental ballad song unlike ordinary ballads.
Lyrics: Bae Jin Ryul / Composer: Lee Jae Yeong / Arrangement: Lee Jae Yeong, Jo Sung Kwang
A song for a woman who has left to stay with me. It is not a sad farewell song. The beat and rhythm comes to life as they blend in harmony. This sad part stands out: “I’m the one who will protect you”.
8. Wish You Hadn’t
Lyrics: Bae Jin Ryul / Composer: Bae Jin Ryul, Choi Ji Yeong / Arrangement: Bae Jin Ryul, Choi Ji Yeong
A woman who betrayed her man returns, this song portrays the confusion in the man’s heart. An easy melody to sing along to all over the arrangement with fresh ideas complete this fun song.
9. You’re My +
Lyrics: Rado, Jean, Won Taek, Mir / Composer: Rado, Jean, Won Taek / Arrangement: Rado, Jean
This hip-hop and R&B song is a special gift from MBLAQ to the fans. MBLAQ member Mir personally wrote the rap lyrics as a more precious gift for the fans.
10. Rolling U
Lyrics: Bae Jin Ryul / Composer: Bae Jin Ryul / Arrangement: Bae Jin Ryul
An MBLAQ Style song to have fun on the dance floor, a song by Rain’s ‘Hip Song’ and MBLAQ’s ‘Y’ composer, Bae Jin Ryul.
11. Oh Yeah Remix
Lyrics: Rain / Composer: Rain, Kim Tae Hwan, Jang Jae Min
MBLAQ’s addictive debut song ‘Oh Yeah’, anyone who hears the repeated phrases will be hooked forever from the first listen.
12. Y Remix
Lyrics: Rain / Composer: Rain, Bae Jin Ryul
A song released after 8 months after MBLAQ’s debut about revenge towards a woman who has left. The popular ‘Y’ dance, song and choreography, nailed perfectly in triple measures on stage.
13. Different Beginning (Outro)
Lyrics: Bae Jin Ryul / Composer: Bae JIn Ryul
Seungho’s cool piano performance and narration completes this quality outro. This outro marks a different beginning just as the title says. “Thank you to our fans.. let’s meet again next time..”, leaving words of regret at the end of the album.
