Flashback Friday

Happy Friday! Summer is almost over and some of the kids have already started school this week so I can visit the mall in peace lol. Also, today marks the start of VIRGO SEASON! My favorite time of the year! 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, let’s go back to the 4th week in August, 2013.

#3 Crayon Pop “Bar Bar Bar”

This was the group’s big viral hit that got them on tour with Gaga. That’s still crazy to me lol. Here’s the girls doing a flash mob performance of the song for MBC Gayo. Remember flash mobs? Do people still do those? I feel like I haven’t seen a flash mob in years. Actually, I don’t think I’ve listened to this song in years either.

#2 2NE1 “Do You Love Me”
I know the music video, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen any of the live stages before. I don’t remember any of the promotions at all. Just the MV because Bommie was wearing a bikini lol. The live stages look fun, and the girls look so cute too.

#1 EXO “Growl”
Third time posting so here’s something a little different. It’s a fairly recent live stage from their 2017-2018 tour, The EℓyXiOn. Would this be considered their big breakout hit? Like, Grandma over here remembers their debut and everything, but this is always the first song that pops into my mind.

Honorable Mentions

#5 Ailee “U & I”
I’m much more into her slower R&B ballads, but I’m okay with this song. I love horns. She looks amazing! And she looks like she’s having a lot of fun. Here’s her comeback stage at Music Core. I really hope she finds a new company and that everything works out for her.

#8 Brown Eyed Girls “Kill Bill”
How are they always so cool? These ladies are just out there living their lives being all cool and fabulous with these concepts and I love it. I love those outfits so much, they’re so hot and it’s all so badass. I would like more ladies doing MVs with fight choreo please.

That Bar bar bar performance was fun.

Kill Bill is one of the best concepts out there tbh.

I was an EXO fan "Growl" era. Its a song thats so good starting from the intro (like Troublemaker by Troublemaker, Never fr PD101, Shine by Pentagon). I miss seeing 12 boys perform it. Even if I dont follow EXO anymore, this will be forever one of my faves and most 2012 groups are special to me =)

Omg how could I forget the majestic, the iconic, the badass of BEG’ Kill Bill?! Once again, their looks continue to be timeless and amazing and I would wear every single things .

Kill Bill performance version was so iconic to me. The opening with the men in the leather pants and the hip thrust move really shook me to my core.
