Flashback Friday

It’s Friday! 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 see what we were listening to in the 4th week of July, 2008. Most of the songs have been posted before, so we’ll see some live stages. It’s Ladies Night tonight!

#3 Seo In Young “Cinderella”
I remember this era mostly because of the outfits…I remember all the ruffles on the bottoms lol. Apparently the song was written by PSY. This was also released while she was on We Got Married, and there’s an appearance from Crown J.

#2 Davichi “Love And War”
This song was the single off of the duo’s repackage of their hit debut album. It went to the top of the charts as well. Overachievers from the start! This feels so 2000s! The styling, the choreography, that panda shirt lol, everything!

#1 Lee Hyori “U Go Girl”
I love this stage because that pink outfit is one of my favorites from the video. Although in the MV it’s a bra top, but I doubt Music Bank would have allowed that. But the dancers are wearing bra tops so I don’t know lol. Still my favorite song and era from her. This era was such a good mix of cute Hyori and sexy Hyori, and I love it so much.

Honorable Mentions

#7 Shinji featuring Mighty Mouth “Sunny Day”

This was one of the songs off her Shinji’s solo debut album, and is a remake of a popular trot song from the 1970s. This is kind of funny to me because it could totally be a Koyote song. Because in Koyote it is her and two other guys. And this song is her and two other guys lol.

#8 Uhm Jung Hwa featuring TOP “D.I.S.C.O”
3rd time posting so here’s a more recent stage. In 2016, to celebrate her first new album since “D.I.S.C.O”, she held her comeback stage at SBS Gayo. “D.I.S.C.O” was one of the three (four?) songs she performed. Sequined TOP catwalking down the stage I can’t what a dork lol. They’re still so cute together! In between art and weird selfie Instagram spams, TOP made some posts celebrating her comeback. Look at her legs! Ughhh so pretty.

I was watching U Go Girl perfs randomly recently and it's crazy how Hyori often sang the whole thing live even though she obviously has a very limited range as a vocalist, and sounded pretty stable the whole time. I'm not 100% sure this one is live bc it sounds a little too clear at points, though you can hear her bracelets jangle when they pass close to her face so clearly the mic is on. Anyway, current idols can't relate lol.

Also I always thought Mr. Big was such an underrated single from that era. That song really holds up

These posts have reminded me just how many hits Davichi has had. I feel like their success doesn't get talked about as much as it should.

I remember watching WGM for one couple but then Seo in Young and Crown J caught my attention and I was watching it more for them. LOL that he brought her shoes. Her and her shoe collection is what I remember the most and how they acted together :)
