Flashback Friday

Every week I check 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’re going back to the 3rd week in June, 2008. Most of the songs have already been posted so this time we’ll see some live stages.

#3 Wonder Girls “So Hot”
This song was huge and topped the charts for weeks. It’s still being covered by the new generations of girl groups now. 2008 was such a great time for Wonder Girls. They would follow this up later in the year with an even bigger hit, “Nobody”.

#2 V.O.S “Beautiful Life”
The group generally does really well on the charts, and this was no different. This was a big hit for them, and got them nominations for song of the year. I’m not fan of the choreography, though. It seems out of place to me.

#1 Taeyang “Only Look At Me”
Remember when someone would be handed a baseball cap onstage and you knew that a dance break was coming up? I feel like those don’t happen that often nowadays lol. This is one of the singles from his solo debut, and would claim the top spot. Ah, little bb R&B Taeyang with his Forever Hairstyle!

Honorable Mentions

#6 SHINee “Replay”

These babies! This was the group’s debut song, and their EP charted in the top ten. I haven’t seen this video is so long, didn’t even recognize Victoria at first. My local Daiso used to play the Japanese version all the time lol. Both versions are awesome. I also will never not hear Lucy Pearl during the verses lol.

#7 Jewerly “Everybody Shhh!”
I loved the hell outta this song back then lol. I think the outfits and song really struck a chord in my former cheerleader heart. The song feels very 90s teen movie lol. Brb, going to hunt down my old uniform in the closet to try on.
