SHINee comes back with a repackaged album titled “Married to the Music” with title track of the same name.
SHINee consistently releases solid music with great choreography and “Married to the Music” certainly does not disappoint. It begins with the words “Marriage is a slow death.” The video has a “Rocky Horror Picture Show” vibe to it, borrowing the comedy/horror aspects of the film. It’s a concept that fits so well with SHINee and they really have fun with it, as each member joins a bizarre party where each member ends up losing a body part (or you’re Minho and you get your whole head lit up in flames). I think that as the members are married to music, music slowly takes over their senses and “slowly kills” them, so in the end in the final shot you see a person who is made up of all of SHINee’s stolen body parts.
There are so many different instances in which I really like how the video was filmed and edited so I’ll list two:
– When a glass of the questionably neon liquid is drunken by the camera & when lowered, the scene reveals Jonghyun and Onew suddenly surrounded by partygoers
– When they play spin the bottle and it cuts to Key spinning on a spinning target and to Onew swinging a bat while trying to strike a piñata (I really like the continuity of all these shots)
Really happy with the result! Now I’m just waiting for SHINee to actually embark on a real world tour (aka visiting at least 2 continents other than Asia).
