Flashback Friday

Making this quick because it’s cold and rainy out and that’s an excuse to go home early and crawl into bed. Every week I check 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, we’re going back 8 years to the 1st week of December, 2011. I started a new batch of posts a few days ago, and I hope you are ready for all the Christmas and winter ballads, Omona. Because we’re starting this week lol.

#3 T-ara “Cry Cry”
This was the group’s follow up to their big breakout “Roly Poly”, and would go to the top of the charts. There are a few music videos for this song, and this time let’s check out the ballad version. I don’t remember this version at all.

#2 Troublemaker “Troublemaker”
This was the duo’s debut. Since a great era for them, it was so successful, and would top the charts and become variety gold. They also looked so fab! I’m loving both of these outfits for the holidays. Why am I only finding out 8 years later that EXID’s LE wrote the lyrics? I had no idea! Get that royalty $$$ girl.

#1 IU “You And I”
I think I remember this era because of the styling, but I only remember bits of the song. Which is weird because this song would be at #1 for a few weeks, and the album, “Last Fantasy”, would sell millions digitally. But this is an IU black hole for me.

Honorable Mentions

#4 Wonder Girls “Be My Baby”
This is my most favorite Wonder Girls song. Here’s a jazzy R&B remix for Gayo. I’m not into it lol. I like the original version better, it’s so bouncy and fun. I feel like JYP does a lot of R&B remixes for the year end shows. I can remember Miss A doing them too, and Twice did one for MAMA a few days ago.

#7 Infinite “White Confession (Lately)”
2011 was a good year for the group. They released their first full album and got their first music show wins. They also made their Japanese debut, where this cute MV was filmed. I don’t remember this song at all, which is not surprising because I don’t remember any Kpop Christmas songs anyhow.
