“Tell Me Goodbye” is BIGBANG’s fourth Japanese single. It was released in two versions: a regular CD Only edition, and a CD+DVD+Goods limited edition. The CD+DVD+Goods edition comes with a earphone cord holder that has a T.O.P character pattern. The title track was used as the opening theme for the Japanese broadcast of the Korean dorama IRIS. This makes their second theme song for the IRIS dorama, as their song “Hallelujah” was also used as theme song for the original Korean broadcast. The B-side, “HANDS UP”, was used as theme song for the TV-program Mezamashi Saturday. The single reached #5 on the Oricon Charts with 31,293 sales and is currently charting.

  • Tell Me Goodbye
  • HANDS UP
    (I’m sort of occupied so I’ll think of putting the Mp3’s later, but I find no reason for that! =P FANSITES!^_^)

Sounds – Like NOTHING I have heard before (I think =P)

1. I haven’t heard much from BIG BANG, and I feel like kicking myself for that after hearing Tell Me Goodbye. The piano play in the beginning is beautiful which (TO MY RELIEF) is accompanied by some very “strong” beats (I suppose) and GD opening the song, which I LOVE because even though I’m not too familiar with their music, I still have my favorite members and my favorite out of these guys is GD! I absolutely love the verses that are not too long like average Japanese songs and not too short like most Korean songs; they’re just the right length so by the time you reach the chorus, you won’t be dying to change the song. This brings us to the chorus, which takes some getting used to. WHY? because the verses are sung with very strong vocals and stronger music, while the chorus is sung lower, softer and the music mellows down as well so at first, the chorus seemed like a disappointment, but LOOK AT THAT! I LOVE IT NOW! Other than that, the rest, the rap, bridge everything is very amusing and it turned out to be a very wait-till-the-end song. Good job BB, I’ll listen to more of you from now on!

2. “HANDS UP! (Where I can see ’em!” – GOSH sorry that was lame!) is a typical song of the type I have heard TOO many times! JUST SIMPLY TOO MANY TIMES! So even though it may be pretty catchy, I lost interest almost as soon as it started, but I;m not really a DIE HARD fan, so I guess it doesn’t appeal to me too much, as much as it would to BB fans. Strong beats, catchy tune – okay song I guess! Nothing compared to TMG though!

(A 9.5/10 if they had made a better B-side!)
