Flashback Friday

Happy Friday! I’m heading off to a county fair this weekend because I need a blooming onion topped with chili cheese fries in my life. Followed by a flaming hot Cheetos covered caramel apple because yolo. Do kids still stay that nowadays? Anyways. 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’re going back 5 years to the 3rd week of July, 2014. Some of the songs have been posted before, so we’ll see some comeback stages.


#3 K.Will “Day 1”
A fun bop from K.Will. It sounds like something I’ve heard before, but I can’t put my finger on it. It just feels really familiar to me. Anyways, he sounds good as usual, and he also looks like he’s having fun with the choreography.





#2 AOA “Short Hair”
My favorite song from the group! This was their follow up to their big hit “Miniskirt”, and also climbed to the top spot. I really liked this era, I thought they all looked real cute. And I really loved all the costumes for the live stages, like I have all of these in my closet now. Not necessarily for sexy times. Okay, maybe for sexy times.





#1 Beast “Good Luck”
This was one of the singles off of their mini album of the same name. I remember bits of the song, mainly the first part of the chorus. I like that chorus a lot. I don’t think I’ve ever seen the MV before. It looks like some of it is based off of Wong Kar-wai’s movie “2046”?





Honorable Mentions

#4 Taeyang “Eyes, Nose, Lips”
I’ve come full circle with this song. I was okay with it at first, then it was everywhere and I was sick of it lol, but now I like it again. I do think it sounds way better live though. He wrote the song about actress Min Hyorin, and a few years later would sing it to her at their wedding. It stayed at the top of the charts for weeks.





#6 Hyomin featuring Loco “Nice Body”
The second Brave Brothers song this week. This was her solo debut single, and I forgot all about this! Blocked it out of my memory, probably. But now that I’ve seen the MV again, I remember this choreography…because of the measuring tape wtf. Loco looks really young here.

Short Hair is one of my absolute favorite kpop songs. Such a bop.

I like Short Hair and Nice Body as songs! though Nice Body MV wasn't the best MV to have, but the song is catchy af.

of course ENL is also a great song, but I'm not really interested in seeing a full video of just Taeyang. but the Hyorin part at the end was pretty sweet

Loved Taeyoung Eyes, nose and lips, and Beast Good Luck. I can remember one show Beast would win the next show Taeyoung would win. Each show you were never sure which one was going to win since it went back and forth. K Will One fine day is still cute. I remember hearing about AOA short Hair coming out but I don't think I ever listened to it before.
