Flashback Friday

First Friday of 2019! Happy New Year guys! 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 songs from the top ten as honorable mentions. This week, let’s see who was on top for the 1st Friday of January, 2011.

#3 Monday Kiz “Love and Memory”
This is their cover of g.o.d’s hit song from 1999. It’s a really good cover! It’s not completely identical to the original song, but still has the same feel to it. Just a little updated. And the vocals here are sooo much stronger. Still love me some Kim Tae Woo vocals tho lol. It feels like an end of the year, wintry song.

#2 Joo “Bad Guy”
Oh, it’s so good! I freaking love this so much, the MV and the song are perfect together! I wish it were longer. I wouldn’t mind if this was 11 minutes long like some old school SG Wannabe. Anyways, the MV features her former label mate, 2PM’s Changsung. Joo spend 9 years at JYP before moving on to Woollim in 2015.

#1 Secret “Shy Boy”
This time around I wanted to share a concert or recent performance video. So here’s the song at the group’s 1st Japan Tour in 2012. I didn’t like the original song, but I’m actually digging it in Japanese lol. I like how it sounds.

Honorable Mentions

#6 GD&TOP featuring Park Bom “Oh Yeah”
How cute is Bommie?!? So cute! There was no Korean MV for this, but they did one for the Japanese release. So here is it in Japanese! I remember when some girls on the set leaked a few pictures from the filming. It was when that tattoo on GD’s shoulder was brand new and there wasn’t a clear view of it and everyone was like “wtf is that a fucking pizza tattoo?!?” lol.

#9 GD&TOP “Knock Out”
Oh OP, back to back GDTOP? Oh yes! I do it every year, and will continue to do so every time the GDTOP era comes around cause it’s my fav. Let me have this once a year treat. The original MV is gone, so here’s a live version of the song. They debuted the song at MAMA in Macau, and then followed it up a few days later with this stage at the 2010 YG Family concert.

I actually really loved shy boy, but every one of secret's releases  always somehow sounds better in Japanese. I love when they used to tour there, they always had so much fun.

Man, I miss them.

I liked how they added boy group dances to their music show performances.
aures 5th-Jan-2019 09:39 pm (UTC)
oh i remember looking forward to guessing the boy band dances for every performance, it was so fun, that 'free style' part, i loved it

also, side note; i saw sunhwa @ running man last week and god the years of being an actress have not done her well have they, what the f*ck happened to her face, she messed it up BADLY, she looked so stunning during secret years

Ugh, I hate the pressure on women to get plastic surgery. We can say it was their choice all we want but that doesn't erase the pressure that already exists for women to look a certain way.

I love Shy Boy, such a fun song.

GD&TOP brings back so many memories omfg. I remember the rumours about their album and then them performing at the MAMA's in Macau. I was a huge BigBang stan back then - still an awesome album. Who else owns the album with the discontinued Playboy bunny logo?

I do, first physical kpop album I ever bought :D

What colour did you get? I have a blue :P
bananaclaw 7th-Jan-2019 04:13 am (UTC)
By the time I got around to it, there were only two colors available at the shop so I picked silver!

Ahhh, Oh Yeah was my sister's and I karaoke jam for years lol, such a classic. So many good times with GD&TOP.
lightframes 5th-Jan-2019 05:42 pm (UTC)
It's a really fun song. I still listen to it.
love_keiko 5th-Jan-2019 05:46 pm (UTC)
GD&TOP forever tbh, i'm pressed we never got a vol. 2

GD is always better with TOP than YB for me, i feel like TOP keeps him in check so he gets cooky and theatrical instead of tryhard af.

for real, they bring out the best in each other. "Zutter" is the best Big Bang-related single of the past few years.
modestgoddess79 5th-Jan-2019 06:50 pm (UTC)
Zutter is such a jam
bananaclaw 6th-Jan-2019 02:09 am (UTC)
OP, I will 300% support every time you want to spotlight GDTOP on these!
