"Flower Power" is the sixth Japanese single released by South Korean girl group Girls' Generation. The single was released on November 14, 2012 via digital download on iTunes Japan, with a limited physical release on November 21, 2012. It serves as the third single from their second Japanese studio album Girls & Peace. Despite a limited release, "Flower Power" sold 29,000 copies in its first week, peaking at number five on the Oricon Chart, the single also reached number six on the Japan Hot 100.


BackgroundEdit

After the success of "Flower Power"s preceding singles, "Paparazzi" and "Oh! / All My Love Is For You", both of which clinched the #1 spot on the Oricon Chart's daily single chart and sold a collective total of more than 190,000 copies, the group's follow-up single "Flower Power" was announced on October 2, 2012. "Flower Power" was scheduled for release in Japan on November 14, 2012, two weeks before the release of the group's second Japanese studio album. A concept photo released by the group's Japanese label shows the group trying to escape searchlights.

However, due to production issues, the physical release was postponed from November 14 to November 21. On October 28, 2012, an audio preview of the song aired on Japanese TV. "Flower Power" also contains a B-side track entitled "Beep Beep", which will not be featured on the album. The single also contained a highlight medley of the accompanying album. However, the single was released digitally on the original November 14 release date. This single was a limited release but came in a long digipak case with a 20-page photo book.

CompositionEdit

"Flower Power" is an up-tempo dance-pop number, taking influences from electropop and electronica, with a "flowing" bass line, with a sexy chorus line demonstrating the "sexy side" of Girls' Generation, contrary to the single's title. Lyrically, the song describes "the strategic moves between a man and a woman on the dance floor," sung by the group with "the sound and light of a glitzy atmosphere."

LyricsEdit

"Flower Power (Japanese)"

光と闇の真夜中 Weekend
ダンス Floor scream and shout
赤裸々 Human nature
交わす視線は目と目
かけひきのボーダー
アソビで咲かせた 恋は徒花
[ヒョ/ユ] Ah ah ah [テ/ス] I’m not gonna
[ヒョ/ユ] Ah ah ah [テ/ス] I’m not gonna

鳴り響く Beat 耳元で Cheers
I’m telling you 徒花
起きてて夢って見れるのね
Do you wanna be my lover?

突き上げて煌いた Glass を
無数の泡が駆け上がる
はじけては消えていく恋を
眩しくライト照らし出す

誰もが Butterfly ぶった Spider (Yeah oh)
甘い香りと Flavor (Oh flavor of flower)
Butterfly ぶった Spider (Yeah oh)
心惑わす Color (Oh color of flower)
Flower (Ooh) [ユ/ソ] 儚く恋が
Flower (Ooh) [ユ/ソ] 妖しく咲いた

あてにならない 刹那的 Night
Do you know 徒花
あの娘にも Smile 人波を Surf
[ジェ/ティ] Do you wanna be my lover?
[ジェ/サ/ティ] Do you wanna be my lover?
[ジェ/サ/ティ] Do you wanna be my lover?

突き上げて煌いた Glass を
無数の泡が駆け上がる
無軌道な歓声の渦を
眩しくライト照らし出す

誰もが Butterfly ぶった Spider (Yeah oh)
甘い言葉の罠 (Oh flavor of flower)
Butterfly ぶった Spider (Yeah oh)
罠に掛かったふりも罠 (Oh color of flower)
Flower (Ooh) [ジェ/ユ] ときめいて今

目に見えない羽伸ばして Kiss

"Flower Power (English)"

Midnight weekends of light and dark
Dance floor, scream and shout
It’s natural human nature
Exchanging looks, eye to eye
It’s on the border of strategy
Love that bloomed by playing around is a fruitless flower
Ah ah ah, I’m not gonna
Ah ah ah, I’m not gonna

The resounding beat, the cheers in my ear
I’m telling you “adabana*”
You can see your waking dreams, right?
Do you wanna be my lover?

Against the sparking glass
Countless bubbles rise up
The vanishing love which it is lit upon
Is illuminated by the dazzling light

Everyone is a spider pretending to be a butterfly (Yeah oh)
A sweet scent and flavor (Oh flavor of flower)
Spider pretending to be a butterfly (Yeah oh)
A color to deceive the heart (Oh color of flower)
Flower (Ooh) a fleeting love
Flower (Ooh) is blooming suspiciously

Put on a mask and erase yourself
That’s when human nature comes out
Dance as your true self
The laser tears up the darkness

An ephemeral night is unreliable
Do you know “adabana*”?
You also smile at that girl, surf the waves of people
Do you wanna be my lover?
Do you wanna be my lover?
Do you wanna be my lover?

Against the sparkling glass
Countless of bubbles rise up
The maelstrom of wild chears
Is illuminated by the dazzling light

Everyone is a spider pretending to be a butterfly (Yeah oh)
A web of sweet words (Oh flavor of flower)
Spider pretending to be a butterfly (Yeah oh)
Pretending to be caught in a web is also a trap (Oh color of flower)
Flower (Ooh) right now the fluttering [heart]
Flower (Ooh) is blooming suspiciously

Being drunk on music, I want to keep swaying
Don’t stop DJ, keep it like this all night
I want to forget all the days
An unseen and unrestrained kiss

Everyone is a spider pretending to be a butterfly (Yeah oh)
A sweet scent and flavor (Oh flavor of flower)
Spider pretending to be a butterfly (Yeah oh)
A color to deceive the heart (Oh color of flower)
Flower (Ooh) a fleeting love
Flower (Ooh) is blooming suspiciously
Flower (Ooh) right now the fluttering [heart]
Flower (Ooh) is blooming suspiciously
