Flavour of the week – Onewe ‘Regulus’

It’s been a while. Life is very busy at the moment and on top of it, there is a bug on WordPress, that won’t let me change the Flavour of the week video. I will just put it in the thread 🙂

I’m already a fan of Oneus, but didn’t pay much attention to Onewe.

Yesterday YouTube recommended this song to me and I fell for it, hard! Yonghoons voice is like honey. It’s soothing and …..damn I’m tearing up again. I have the song on loop right now.

Even though I’m a writer, I have trouble putting it into words. The song makes me feel sad, lonely and still kinda hopeful. I will copy/paste what studioweus wrote on YouTube. It’s an explanation about the story behind the song.

For those wondering, “Regulus” is the title for the Latin release of The Little Prince (by Antoine de Saint-Exupery), which is what the premise of this song is all about! And for those who haven’t read “The Little Prince,” here is a somewhat extensive summary on what the story is about in relation to the title track of this album! A pilot lands on a desert and encounters a peculiar blonde boy. The little prince tells the pilot that he lives on a different planet (the star that ONEWE refers to throughout the song!) and continues on with his story. The little prince resides on that star with a single rose, who tells him that she’s the only one of her kind. After finding out that the rose lied to him, he storms off and traverses the other planets in the universe where he encounters adults who seemed too preoccupied with what they were doing to pay any mind to the little prince at all. He eventually finds himself on Earth (where he also encounters the pilot!) and soon finds out that there are other roses, not just the single rose he had on his planet, which saddens him even further knowing that his rose isn’t “unique.” Continuing his desert trek, he chances upon a fox who teaches the little prince a very valuable lesson about friendship and love in the form of one of the most iconic quotes in the book: “It is the time you have wasted for your rose that makes your rose so important.” So the little prince yearns to be reunited with his rose: “Of course, an ordinary passerby would think my rose looked just like you. But my rose, all on her own, is more important than all of you together, since she’s the one I’ve watered. Since she’s the one I put under glass, since she’s the one I sheltered behind the screen. Since she’s the one for whom I killed the caterpillars (except the two or three butterflies). Since she’s the one I listened to when she complained, or when she boasted, or even sometimes when she said nothing at all. Since she’s my rose.” Then after what appears to be a long time, the pilot is able to fix his plane but the little prince falls as a snake bites him “underneath the starry night sky”. The pilot is obviously distraught, but soon finds himself being pleased with the idea that the prince has returned to his home among the stars with his beloved rose! Since the book is written in the first person perspective, the narrator (the pilot himself) urges the readers to contact him when they find a strange little blonde boy wandering around the desert.

Stan them, they have so much potential and talent. Krock should get more attention.
