Flashback Friday

Happy Friday! It’s been raining pretty much all week, and today we finally got a break and now I can finally go outside. Every week I go through 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 check out what we were listening to in the 3rd week of January, 2015.

#3 Jonghyun featuring Zion. T “Deja Boo”
I love this song so much, it’s my most favorite of his solo stuff. I know there were some complaints about the MV being a performance video, but I’ve always liked it. He looks so great up on stage, and I just like the song too much anyways lol. Zion. T looking so fresh and so clean clean in white! And P.S. oh my god I can’t believe I’d forgotten all about that SM hologram musical thing lol!

#2 Noel “Your Voice”
This was the single off of their last mini album. It was written by member Lee Sang Gon, and member Kang Kyung Sung makes an appearance in the MV. I was gonna make a comment about how Kyung Sung was all over variety shows for a while, and how now I don’t see him anymore. Like, what happened to him? But then I googled and apparently he got a haircut back in 2016 and I just didn’t recognize him lol wtf. Anyways, the song is pretty and they all sound good (no surprise lol).

#1 Mad Clown featuring Jinsil “Fire”

This was the single off of his third mini featuring the vocals of Mad Soul Child’s Jinsil. Jinsil’s voice is perfect for this song! The video features EXID’s Hani, and this was done when she and “Up And Down” were EVERYWHERE at the time. Like, EXID got their first music show win the same day this MV was released. She’s the main reason I even remember this video at all lol.

Honorable Mentions

#6 Soyou & Giriboy featuring Kihyun “Pillow”
I try to stay away from songs from tv shows, but this one got past me and now it’s too late lol. I didn’t watch the show, but apparently is a collaboration song with the idol survival show No Mercy. And Soyou and Giriboy were judges/mentors? Kihyun would later become a member of Monsta X.

#8 Kyuhyun “At Gwanghwamun”
This was the single off of his first solo debut album. Multiple songs of off the album charted, but this one topped them all. He would go on to release a Chinese version of the song a few months later. I’ve posted this song and the MV before, so let’s check out his solo debut at Music Core.

Dejaboo will have a special place in my heart; I immediately loved it at first listen!

Deja Boo will always be that flirty little song. There's also the music show performances where he wears those Listerine-like suits, lol. He won on so many shows for this including on Music Core with Minho.

I didn't remember there were complaints about the MV being a performance video but I remember it was made last minute because the song blew up on the charts rather than the lead single Crazy, which had a proper MV. I think they had to grab a recording of Deja Boo from his debut showcase and made that as the MV. The success must mean a lot to him because it's the one he co-composed while Crazy only had his lyrics iirc.

I also loved that they made the change to promote Deja-Boo instead of Crazy because of the response!

I've been thinking how cool it would be if Shinee did a cover/remix of Deja Boo as a tribute to Jonghyun. I'd love to hear a Taemin remix with Key doing Zion T's parts.

This reminds me of the time Taemin impersonated Zion. T during an unaired Deja Boo performance lol. Though I'm not sure if he actually sang

Lmaooooo I've never seen this omg

There's no official video of this fan event so Zion.Taem is super rare lol.
