Flashback Friday

Happy Friday! Every week I check out the charts for this day in the past and post the top three songs. Then I pick out two more from the top ten as honorable mentions. This week, let’s see who was on top for the 3rd week of October, 2014. As I mentioned a few weeks ago, we’re getting into the part of the year where ballads start to dominate the charts.

#3 Kim Dong Ryul “How I Am”
This music video gained attention because it stared Gong Yoo. He had only ever appeared in one MV from back in his rookie days, so it was a big deal. Personally, I do remember the video but don’t recognize the song at all. So I guess recruiting Gong Yoo really worked lol. The song is nice too, I’m a sucker for lush orchestrations.

#2 Gaeko featuring Zion.T & HA:TFELT “No Make Up”
First off, “I have no makeup on” or “I already took off my bra/pants” is totally an acceptable response! This was a single off Gaeko’s first solo album, 17 tracks filled with tons of collaborations. This one in particular features Zion.T and Yeeun, and they both appear in the MV as well. It’s a fun video too.

#1 Akdong Musician “Time And Fallen Leaves”
This is so pretty. Sooo pretty! I will play this over and over again this weekend, and I’ll live a weekend worthy of it. Oh, there will be a trip to the farmers market and a stroll in the park…I’ll make damn sure. Apparently this was supposed to be on their debut album that came out in the Spring of 2014, but it was held off to be released as a single later in the Fall.

Honorable Mentions

#5 VIXX “Error”
It’s a really cool video! But it also makes me a little uneasy because I totally believe this can and will happen in the near future, if it isn’t already (OP grew up watching a lot of The Twilight Zone, Outer Limits and Doctor Who). Anywhos, the MV features Kara’s Youngji. Also, what…what is that hat? That’s a hat, right?

#8 Roy Kim “Home”
Apparently he wrote the song from the perspective of his doggie. Awww! I’m not familiar with Roy Kim or his pets, but I’m going to take a guess that the song’s inspiration makes a cute appearance here in the MV. “Home” was the lead single off of his second album of the same name.

Time And Fallen Leaves is so good!
Maybe Ravi's hat was a reference to the Tin Man lol, but oh wow I didn't remember that Error had that super sad ending D:
