MY FAVORITE KPOP SONGS OF 2012 pt3

Final part!

30. THIS IS WAR – MBLAQ

Now tell me, what girl wouldn’t like having this 2 fine guys fighting over her? Declaring war to each other while dancing and singing in those outfits? haha ok scratch that last part. This song is great, the lyrics are great, the performances were over the top, a perfect comeback for Mblaq.

29. WHAT IS LOVE – EXO K

Oh baby, don’t hurt me, don’t hurt me no more… #OKNOT … I could not stop playing that in my head everytime I heard the tittle of this song hahaha. This song brings me back to the golden TVXQ days, is a beautiful soft sound, made to show off the vocal skills of its interpreters, my favorite EXO song.

28. VENUS – HELLOVENUS

V-I-C-T-O-R-Y- GIRLS lalalalalalala. Pretty girls + catchy song + colorful MV = old formula… but it worked like new for this girls! … not bad Hello Venus!  My favorite debut song of the first half of the year.

MY FAVORITE KPOP SONGS OF 2012 pt2

60.ROUND AND ROUND – T-ARA

Out of nowhere comes T-ara with this remake and I can not do anything but love it. So catchy and in sync with T-ara vocals.

59. MISSING YOU- G-DRAGON

You cant go wrong if there is whistling in your song! hahaha This gotta be one of the best songs from GD´s album, why It did not have a MV? I dont understand! A true hot chocolate cup  for the soul … Maybe I’m missing you lalala ❤

58. FACE – NU’EST

This song makes me believe I am in a club downtown Berlín hahaha. It sounds so much like an european dance track is ridiculous. A nice debut song for the boy band once known as pledis boys.

MY FAVORITE KPOP SONGS OF 2012 pt1

HELLO 2013!

I am gonna start this new year with my favorite songs from 2012!

What a great year!!! But If I have to make a summary of what this year meant to Kpop, it would be this: Lots of high quality rookies, everybody wants to go solo, scandals scandal scandals, and of course YG year (the awesome Big Bang comeback, G-Dragon, Lee Hi, 2NE1 and of course PSY)

And other thing, I am sorry,  I know I’ve been neglecting my blog.  I got a new job and everything changed.  So  I made a resolution of always keeping up with the new releases, I already ajusted to my new life and I am ready to go!

100. BOUNCE – JJ PROJECT

Lets start this countdown with a rookie group. In a year filled with rookies, I was hoping for more, is JYP you know? Epic debut songs (irony, 10 points over 10, good girl bad girl, etc). The group came out of nowhere after the awful Dream High 2 with an energetic song, but very forgettable. But since I am a fool for those smiles I´ll let them be in my ranking. 😀

99. WHAT ARE YOU DOING TODAY? – HELLOVENUS

Finally we get to see the 6 of them performing. Almost at the end of 2012 the lovely girls from HELLO VENUS made another cute comeback. And as much as I dont like over the top cuteness I do like this song. I am so biased towards them hahahaha, their debut song was everything to me so now I kind  of like every release! hahaha Leaving behind my madness, this is a great Kpop song.

98. I FEEL GOOD – EXID

This song kind of reminds me of B.E.P.  dont you think? You can feel Shinsadong Tiger´s hand on it, is a pretty good piece of music. “I feel good” is a great song for a rookie, and is admirable the fact that they could sing it with all the swag it required. NOT BAD!

MY FAVORITE SONGS FROM THE FIRST HALF OF 2012

40. G.NA – 2HOT

If I did not love G.na last year with “Top Girl”, I am loving her even less this year with “2HOT”. I wish I could see more of the Black&White girl I like. All and all, the song is good for her, It allows G.na to perform nicely and to try another kind of sound. Experimenting is good for growing so this was a nice try (but It could have been better). She is in this list because I love her, and I like the MV.

 39. BUSKER BUSKER – CHERRY BLOSSOM ENDING

This guys were my biggest surprise this year. I can´t get enough of this amazing song.

38. HONEY HONEY – GANGKIZ

Baby honey honey honey baby come to me CLAP! I am sad their debut was so little notorious. This song is good and actually gives you a vibe of what Gangkiz is all about.

MY FAVORITE DEBUT SONGS

I have a weakness for debut songs.

I believe so much in first impressions that it is impossible not to judge a group by the song that brings it into the spotlight.

Is true that having a regular/bad debut does not mean you can’t do better later, but It helps a lot if you were succesful from day one… right? You create a large fan base that will help you for future comebacks. You get more media coverage, you are better known and you already have a hit song in your portfolio.

So here are my 30 favorite debut songs. Not all fo them were great achievements for their performers, but I loved them… that is enough to make it on this list… enjoy:

30. Apink – I Don’t Know

So sweet that it can give you cavities. But no one can deny it was a good debut, the best rookies of 2011.

28. Nine Muses – No Playboy

I dont want no playboy…NO! So you have model like girls and a catchy song. Isn’t that what Kpop is all about? haha well no, but they did the trick. This song is very good and I believe it deserved better.

My fav kpop songs of 2011 pt2

Lets continue with this countdown… 

25. Starlight Moolinght – Secret

The ladies of Secret really know how to surprise me. While watching the teasers I could only think “ewwww another sweet song”, I was losing my faith in the girls… but how could I? So yeah the tune is as sweet as cookie dough, but it has substance at the same time. I think they deserved more awards for this effort.

24. Ugly – 2NE1

Is not usual to hear a song like this in the kpop world. I felt so much the first time I watched the video, its good now and then to have this type of message and to sing with so much strenght. The amazing girls fron 2NE1 did it again.

23. To me – Rainbow

I´m crazy about the purses they used in the MV, also the dance steps when they say “come come come come to me”.  Must say how much I dig those flying long hairs… Now I can finally said that I like Rainbow.

My fav kpop songs of 2011 pt1

Was 2011 a rollercoaster or what???? A year full of news,  rising stars, epic comebacks, scandals and above all music.

This are my favorites tunes of 2011. My list is based on how much I like the songs and the number of plays on my itunes.  

Lets get started…

55. Suddenly – City Hunter OST

I have an issue with OST music, they bring back all the feelings from the drama, and I end up getting all emotional. Thats why I like this song so much, It makes me think of  Lee Min Ho and Park Min Young … City Hunter wouldn’t have been the same without this song (according to me haha).

54. In the Night Sky – After School Red

If I were a man I would be crazy about Nana. I envy her long legs so much =(.  So this was supposed to be a SEXY song but to be honest IT IS NOT. Anyway, I like it a lot.  Its girly and lovely.

53. Dr. Feel Good – Rania

Everybody was so hard on them, dont really get why people have to be so mean. The song is awesome, they CAN sing and the choreography just goes with it.
