October 30, 2017
Rather than taking photographs to preserve memories, IU captures the nostalgic moments of her youth through music. In 2014, the singer-songwriter reinterpreted some of her favorite old songs in the special record A Flower Bookmark, which lyrically compares the preservation of good old memories to a pressed flower. Three years later, IU again revisits the bygone days of K-pop music from the 1960s to 2000s in her second remake album A Flower Bookmark 2.
Released in 1991, "Autumn Morning" is an encouraging folk song by Yang Hee Eun with Lee Byung Woo on guitar. Keeping the song's minimalistic arrangement, IU recreates a peaceful autumn morning in her soothing cover (Track 1). Over Jung Sung Ha's warm guitar accompaniment, the singer-songwriter croons in her crystal clear vocals about the simple yet happy moments of everyday life. The remake version incorporates folk musician Hareem's beautiful tin whistle solo to imitate the sound of birdsong.
The 1988 classic "Sleepless Rainy Night" was originally a jazz ballad sung by Lee Seung Chul. Following Park Kwang Hyun's 1991 cover, the song became famous in 1992 thanks to Kim Gun Mo's ingenious fusion of R&B and hip-hop. IU pays homage to all three musicians with her groovy rendition (Track 3), which blends jazz, R&B and soft rap. Despite the lack of Kim Gun Mo's energetic vibe, its soulful sound suits the heartbreaking lyrics about the sorrow of separating from a loved one.
"Last Night Story" (Track 4) stands out from other soothing ballads with its distinctive disco-rock style. Though the original's synth sound is replaced by an electric guitar melody, great nostalgia can still be felt in the remake version because of the trot-influenced melody. Released in 1988 by legendary trio Sobangcha, the upbeat disco jam tells a bittersweet tale about a boy being cheated on by his girlfriend at a party. To better deliver the somber and loneliness of the song, IU adopts an expressionless tone that provides a distinct contrast with the song's festive atmosphere.
While covering old songs, many singers pursue idiosyncratic styles that help separate their covers from the originals. IU stays faithful to the classics' original flavors while putting a fresh spin on the old tunes. Through the A Flower Bookmark project, the singer-songwriter revitalizes long-forgotten music that is worth remembering.
