Father SM’s SHINee Remakes Part II: “Hit Me”

Post by RiceRiceBaby on Wed May 27, 2009 6:33 pm

First, SM decided to rehash some mediocre Corbin Bleu for SHINee's comeback single "Juliette". While some fans could understand choosing a safe, catchy single that catered to mainstream tastes for profit's sake, SHINee World is abuzz with the new revelation that yet another song from the new mini-album "Romeo" is a remake.

The SHINee track in question is "Hit Me", with the original song being "Bad Case" by Los Angeles duo Jackie Boyz (recorded in December 2008).

Adding an additional DBSK/Sarah Connor plot twist, the rights to "Bad Case" were also sold concurrently to R&B singers Marques Houston and Omarion, each of whom released their own versions of the song titled "Case Of You" on May 21st.

Since "Bad Case" was never really an official release, this particular originality violation does not reek as much as "Juliette" did. But this constant remaking really has to disappear if K-Pop wants to gain any credibility in the global music industry. Even if you repeat the word "nobody" 62 times or "gee" 52 times in a single song, at least it's all original. So while SM gets all the money through copycat creation, SHINee's impressive talents are almost wasted recording these remakes, as the five teenagers are blissfully unaware that Americans an ocean away are and have been recording the same melodies. SHINee gets the backlash, as Father SM rakes in the cash. Grr.

Heh, this allkpop person is really upset about this.
Here's my take on this, SHINee didn't copy the Jackie Boyz, cuz SM did bought the rights to the song.
Plus, all 4 versions are EXCELLENT!

I see what the person from AKP means.

-but-

SHINee's cover of Jackie Boyz' "Bad Case" (if you want to call it a cover) was great and should have actually been SHINee's lead single instead of "Juliette." At least "Hit Me"/"Bad Case"/"Case of You" has a refreshing sound compared to what we're hearing from most of the current girl bands who are taking over.
