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.
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.
OH GOD ,…what an ugly chapter for T-ara… bullying rumors, losing one member, losing contracts, tv appearances, and so many fans. I was against they making a comeback so soon, I was afraid they might get a bad response, but I was wrong.
What an addictive song, and their doll outfits are just too cute!
Once again the girls from T-ara manage to deliver a bizarre concept with style. Who would give a cent for the robot dance? And yet they nail it.
I am so glad they didnt disband or something of the sort. The world of Kpop would loose so much without chameleonic T-ara.
T-ara is back with a song that sounds so alike with “Criminal” by Britney Spears, I am surprised it wasn’t on the news.
But I’ll look over it. Lets say Britney’s and T-ara’s songs have a different vibe, and they are good in their own terms.
Every time T-ara makes a comeback I am dying to see their new transformation, is amazing how they re-shape themselves and deliver all kinds of sounds. The problem is that sometimes is a good surprise and sometimes not so good. “Day by Day” is good.
I dig the rap part a lot, Hwayoung is finally shining and the other members also got a decent singing part. NOT BAD!
I do not know how to describe the song, so I won’t. All I know is that I like it, and is all that matters hahaha.
The MV is great, a post apocalyptic story about a young disabled girl meant to save humanity….what´s not to like about that? It’s like watching a short film!
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.
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.
I get obssesed with songs…A LOT, sometimes I have my Ipod on shuffle mode and suddenly a song pops up and I find it so great I can not help but to play it over and over again. IPOD SHUFFLE MODE is going to be about those songs.
Right now I am all about Round and Round by T-ara, It is so adorable!!!!
Its a remake from an 80s track , but even if i did not tell you, I guess you could just feel it!
The song belongs to the project album called ‘Sonata 2012: 33 Songs Selected by T-ara – High School Days‘.
