I’m feeling a bit nostalgic today (and still having a Save Me hangover), so we’re looking back four years to one of my favorite 2PM songs. “Come Back When You Hear This Song” is a fairly straightforward regretting-the-breakup number, though it has a surprisingly upbeat tempo and melody for a song that is essentially wow, I was a piece of shit, please forgive me?
What should I do now that it’s too late
I regret that I let you go
Don’t have the courage to make you come back after making you cry
But give me one more chance
The MV itself has aged fairly well, and I still like the motif of the seven deadly sins and how each of the boys’ different sins drove the lady away. Interestingly, the lady being begged to return was associated with pride before the start of the song–did she need to get rid of it in order to leave in the first place? Or is ripping off that necklace what allowed her to come back at the end?
I would definitely not go back to them if I were her, but hey, maybe she wants six rich boyfriends if they grovel a little. That’s her choice.
This isn’t the group’s most interesting choreography (and some of the moves haven’t aged well), but the MV does a pretty good job of conveying its simple story. “Come Back When You Hear This Song” is just easy and pleasant for me to listen to. It makes for some great background noise when I’m out and about or doing chores. If you haven’t heard it yet, give it a chance–I think it’s worth four minutes of your time.
