In case you didn't know Baekhyun, Chen, and D.O. are the only ones who sing in this song. Everyone knows they have extreme vocal talent, but in this song it's sort of amplified and highlighted without them being drained with an overproduced instrumental for a dance song. I must say while EXO's dance tracks are raw, their slow songs and ballads really show what they can do vocally.
The song was beautiful. It's depressing like SHINee's Symptoms though when you hear the lyrics. The songs production it's nice and beautiful carried out with really strong vocals and a message.
The music video had fangirls crying and fainting at the same time. While I did not faint or cry it's pretty fucking depressing! You have Kai playing with a puppy all happy and shit then he's depressed on his bed, Luhan getting some present together then once he gets to the concert hall he's depressed, Chanyeol with couple rings and then crying, Tao waiting for his lover who never comes then crying, Sehun waiting with flowers she never shows up so he cries. Baekhyun, Chen, and D.O. have that "Kill me now!" Look in their eyes. DEAR FUCKING GOD WHY IS EVERYONE SO DAMN UPSET? Then you actually listen to song/ read the lyrics after hyperventilating and then you understand and become depressed.
I only have two complaints:
1. As a Christmas song, the jolliest time of the year, this song is not the best to have on while unwrapping gifts.
2. Compared to the other songs on the album this song is like a kick in the balls (wait I don't have balls.) Okay it's like when Kai is about to bust out some of his sexy ass dance moves or hip thrust and just when your ovaries are about to explode, Chanyeol's derping ass comes out of nowhere like:
But the pros definitely out way the cons 99%! Still love the song and video.
*Before you get your panties/boxers in a bunch let it be said that I love Channie it's just fun to make fun of his horrific derp.*
