We missed out on a Throwback Thursday last week, but we’ll add it in this week with Flashback Friday! I almost missed out on Shuffle-It Sunday too (college readings will be the death of me). But, I refuse to fall behind again on this, so let’s get started! I hope you all find something new to listen to, or take a walk down memory lane!
1. Wonder Girls – Be My Baby
Wow! It’s been three years already! I remember when I was singing to this song all the time when it was first released. You can never go wrong with a Wonder Girls’ song. Even though it’ll be hard to see them all together again, especially since one of them is now a mother, I can’t wait to hear another Wonder Girls’ track that won’t let my ears rest!
2. Zia – 웃음만 (Just Laugh)
This is a beautiful song, and I hope it gets more attention. Zia has such a beautiful voice.
3. DMTN – E.R.
This song definitely pulls at emotions. I think they were too underrated when they were active, and it’s unfortunate that the other members were affected by the decision of one. Being a fan of KPOP in general is tough. I don’t know what’s going on half the time. Anyone know what’s going on with DTMN? If they are still together, and release a new song in the future, I’ll definitely be on the look out for it.
4. 2NE1 – Let’s Go Party
I am so sad that 2NE1 is not attending MAMA 2014. YG performances are what I always look forward to. I’m glad Taeyang and G-Dragon will be showing up, but still… For us, the more of YG Family, the better. Anyway, I remember having forgotten about 2NE1 after Lollipop promotions with Big Bang, and then I randomly remembered them one day while I was at my sister’s house on vacation. Let’s Go Party was the song that helped me rediscover them and I’ve been hooked onto the Black Jack wagon ever since.
5. Super Junior – Miracle
This is one of my all-time favorite songs from Super Junior, and I think it’ll be hard to wipe it out from its spot. My top 3 are Miracle, It’s You, and then Sorry Sorry. I haven’t played any Super Junior songs as often as these three.
6. Super Junior – 너 같은 사람 또 없어 (No Other)
After Hankyung left Super Junior, along with DBSK’s issue, I kind of went on an SM riot by myself (you have to remember I was a naive 15 year-old and my young teenage mind was not ready for this). I didn’t listen to any thing from them for awhile. Then I was doing my usual YouTube browsing and came across this song. I was hooked on again, although it won’t ever be as strong as before, Like I’ve stated many times before, you can’t deny a good song. I do love that the remaining members have had their fill of shit from netizens and the industry though, and are speaking their own minds in public now without much of a care about what others have to say about them, good or bad.
7. EXO-M – Lucky
What do I do?! My iTunes must just want to hear me cry, making me reminisce so much, especially playing a song EXO said was for their fans. It feels so weird to listen to EXO now knowing they’re no longer “one”. I also hate that there is so much negativity going around among fans when we don’t even know what happened, and we never will. Although I might not pay as much attention to EXO as I did before, I’ll always support their music.
8. B.A.P. – Good-Bye
Glad to know that it’s not “Good-bye”, but rather “See you later”. This is probably one of my favorite songs from them that’s more on the ballad side. I’m not as into B.A.P as Darice is, but they definitely have a place in my KPOP heart, which knows no end. I don’t think it’ll be long before I’m on the same boat as Darice is with them. 1004 definitely got me closer. I think they’re a talented group and I cannot wait to hear from them again. Hoping they get a good rest so they can come back stronger than ever.
9. Tablo ft Jinsil – 나쁘다 (Bad)
I am so glad that Epik High was able to stay together, even though I didn’t really know what was going on. I just knew something was off when Tablo made a solo comeback. I loved it, no doubt, but it’s always better when a group is whole. I get more excited and my feels can sometimes spill over. Jinsil’s voice here caught me by surprise, and hearing it again now makes me wonder why I still haven’t looked her up. She has such a unique voice!
10. Lee Seung Hwan ft Jo Kwon – Dunk Shot
Oh, man, this song! Again, found through YouTube browsing. If you haven’t yet heard this song, you have missed out on one of the greatest KPOP songs ever! And I absolutely loved Jo Kwon’s featuring here. It’s a catchy tune, and I hope it grows on many more KPOP fans!
And that’s the end for this week’s Shuffle-It Sunday! I hope you found something new to listen to, or joined me in a walk down memory lane, some being quite recent.
