Best K pop songs in the last ten years
« on: December 28, 2018, 09:08:49 pm »
It's the time of year when lists are produced so curious about what all these new teachers coming over on the Korean wave think about this. There's a lot of talk about groups but not so much about songs, so what would be your K pop top three songs of the last ten years?

To kick things off mine would be

1) Crayon Pop - bar bar bar
2) Kara - Pretty girl
3) Girls Generation - Gee Gee.

Ten years?

HAHAHA! You rigged that vote!

11 years ago "Tell Me" by Wonder Girls was released and I still have days when it gets stuck in my head.

It had no equal. Ugh.

(I assume by "best" pop song you mean most popular, most catchy, lasting, impactful, etc. As such...)

...3 songs to span 10 years is an impossible ask, so I'll just put 3 songs out there that I feel strongly about.

1. SHINee - Ring Ding Dong
2. EXO - Growl
3. Orange Caramel - Catallena

Hmmm...that's a toughy. I'm not too big on the newer stuff and I don't think I should go all hipster and start naming obscure rock or indie or country bands.

Award for best comedy song and video: Itaewon Freedom

3. G-Dragon- 삐딱하게 (Crooked). I sorta dislike the nihilism of the song, but there is something about it that gets people partying and having a good time. Exuberant venting. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h5PpfloQSIU
2. 백지영 (Baek Ji-Young)- 총맞은것처럼 (Like Being Hit by a Bullet).  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RRduD92WDrc
1. TVXQ- Mirotic. This song is like, a transition from 'Middle Kpop' of the early 2000s to what it is now. It's a damn fun song. Gets everyone dancing. Good memories to this song. Ihttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HtJS32n6LNQ

For me, guess it's gotta be:

Troublemaker - some dude and Hyuna
Poison - Secret
You and I - IU

Blackpink - Whistle
Hyuna - Red
Red Velvet - Bad Boy

(I'm obviously a recent arrival at the party)

Can't stand the boy bands. Not a single one of them.

   Best K-Pop songs...?

   No such thing: 'best' and K-pop are two terms that never belong together; are you 14?
