Flashback Friday

It’s Friday! This week flew by and I’m not feeling crappy. Hope you had a better week! Every week I go through the charts for this day in the past and share the top three songs. Then I pick out two more from the top ten as honorable mentions. This week, we’ll go back 8 years to the 1st week of June, 2011. Some of the songs were posted before, so there will be some live stages.

#3 2NE1 “Lonely”
This is one of my top favs from them, I really adore this song. Even the instrumental I think is so pretty. And they all sound and look so good! Vampire Dara with that pretty face ughhhh. I’ve never been much more than a casual fan of the group, but watching them together like this makes my heart hurt now. But they still care for and support each other so yay sisterhood!

#2 Beast “Fiction”
Shuffley feet dance! Was there ever a proper name of that dance? Because that’s what I’ve always called it lol. Whatever it’s called, the choreo works with that catchy chorus. I like this song, it’s definitely in my top three from them. This is also the song that gave Beast their first first place win.

#1 Baek Ji Young “Ordinariness”
What kind of man can make you run down the street barefoot in a long gown with that much anger and anguish? Ah, it’s a shirtless Oh Ji Ho. Gotcha. Not going to lie, I totally laughed at 1:08 lol. Anyways, it’s Baek Ji Young so as expected, gorgeous vocals and a soulful song.

Honorable Mentions

#6 Sistar19 “Ma Boy”

I will never not body roll to this. If I’m not body rolling to this song, then it means I’m dead. Please send warm regards to my mom and dog. Love this, it’s still my favorite Sistar19 song and one of my most fav Sistar songs overall. They are both so freaking adorable. And I need Bora’s whole outfit.

#10 5Dolls “Like This Or That”
Here’s a group I haven’t thought of in forevers! The more I watch this, the more I remember this. Like, all this choreography came back to me after the third viewing…so weird lol. This is the last group release with all the original 5 members.

2NE1 had great R&B slow-jams. I was never a fan of Bom's voice but this song transcended.
I still remember how to do Ma Boy's choreo.
Fiction is still on rotation on my playlist.

Fiction seems like one of the most iconic songs of that era

Beast remains as one of the best boy groups ever in kpop. And Fiction is one of the best they've ever released (if not the best).

the entire Fiction and Fact album is one of the best kpop albums ever released and i will fight anyone who says otherwise

I totally agree! I still listen to Lightless (unplugged) til now coz its just so beautiful! And amazing when they performed it in one of their concerts.

Lonely is my favourite 2ne1 track ♥ Beast was so good at that times, thanks to that morons's personnalities to have tarnished this for me forever now.
Unpopular opinion but I really dislike Ma boy.

I prefer 2NE1's slower songs to their bangers. Their ballads are just so good and lonely is no exception! *O* Loved the styling for this era as well! \o/

That Fiction choreo is so iconic lol XD I remember when the song came out and everyone was doing the shuffle. The song and that album are brilliant. Probably their best album to date tbh because every single song on there was good.

Ma Boy is such a bop and also had that iconic choreo because yaaaaaaassssssssss at them body rolls! \o/ I wish sistar19 had more comebacks because GNAAL was also perfection T_T

i miss sistar19 so much, well sistar in general

Ma Boy is still awesome.

Lonely so iconic

i think they called the fiction choreo "penguin dance"

Really loved/love Fiction by Beast. Definitely one my favorites by them along with Soom, Ribbon, and 12:30. The Fiction and Fact album really was so good all around.

Whenever I hear that Sistar19 song, I think of that episode on Running Man where Km Jong Kook body rolls to it in the car. Hahah
