2021 Kpop and Apop song suggestions for new school game?
« on: May 03, 2021, 11:50:49 am »
Hello!

I'm making a Spring 2021 version of the Musical Pursuit game I made before, and I'm looking for songs that have been released just this year. I've checked out melon.com and youtube, and I've made a short list, but I'd like some feedback on what's good and what should be tossed . Also open to any other suggestions that I haven't listed at all.

American pop songs can be pre-2021 as long as they're super popular and well known among middle and high school students, it's only really kpop songs that I'm trying to stick strictly within 2021, although I'll probably make exceptions for songs that are still super popular and that I have not already used in my Winter 2020 Musical Pursuit.

Here's my list so far:

2021 Kpop:
"Lilac" - IU
"Gone" - Rosť
"On The Ground" - Rosť
"Mafia in the Morning" - Itzy
"After School" - Weeekly
"Bambi" - Baekhyun
"꼬리(TAIL)" - Sunmi
"Ponzona" - Purple Kiss
"Film Out" - BTS
"I'm Not Cool" - HyunA
"Drunk Dazed" - Enhypen
"Scared" - P1Harmony
"Inside Out" - Nu'est
"Water Color" - Whee In
"Rollin" - Brave Girls
"Melody" - Ash Island
"ASAP" - STAYC
"Ugly Dance" - ONF
"One" - Astro
"Inception" - IKON cover
"Panorama" - IZ*ONE

Apop:
"Peaches" - Justin Bieber
"Savage Love" (BTS Remix) - Jason Derulo, Jawsh 685 (used this song in my other game, but not this version of it)
"Don't Start Now" - Dua Lipa
"12:45 (Stripped)" - Etham
"Watermelon Sugar" - Harry Styles
"Cruel Summer" - Taylor Swift
"ME!" - Taylor Swift
"Younger" - Jonas Blue
"At My Worst" - Pink Sweat$
"Beautiful Mistakes" - Maroon 5

Kpop songs from 2020 that I'm still thinking about including:
"음 (MMM)" - Treasure
"AYA" - Mamamoo
"Black Mamba" - Aespa
"Siren" - P1Harmony
"Secret Story of the Swan" - IZ*ONE
"Blue Hour" - TXT
"We Ride" - Brave Girls
"VVS" - Collab (머쉬베놈, 미란이, 쿤디판다, 먼치맨)
"Hero" - Lim Young Woong (임영웅)
"Inception" - ATEEZ

Thanks in advance!

I don't think people who actively post on this site are into the latest pop charts. You might have more luck posting on a FB group or perhaps a K-pop subreddit.

Best of luck

when you said melon.com for a few brief seconds i thought Fantano had a k-pop list or something before my actual brain kicked in

anyways one of my students has specifically mentioned peaches by jb and ive heard dua lipas name thrown around a lot so those two are probably pretty safe bets lol

Many of my students know "Senorita" by Shawn Mendes and Camilla Cabello.

Hallyu and it's success in Korea experiencing a new Golden Age, complete with culture bombs, has convinced me that this place is only a few turns away from being nuked by Gandhi.

This is really more about getting feedback from teachers who may know what their students are currently into. I can't really trust what the teachers themselves would be following because I've learned the hard way that what's popular on the charts isn't necessarily what's popular with Korean students. ^^;

Anyway, thank you for your feedback, I did actually create a thread on reddit.

And thank you krista and sticky, I've written those suggestions down.
