Flashback Friday

Hope you all are holding up okay. 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, we’re going back 5 years to the 1st week of April, 2015. Some of the songs were posted before, so we’ll check out some comeback stages.

#3 Huh Gak “Snow Of April”

This was the title track of his album of the same name. It was also his comeback in almost 2 years. It would reach the top spot, no surprise here, it’s really pretty. Both the song and the vocals are pretty together, and the MV is pleasant too.

#2 Minah “I Am A Woman Too”
Oh I remember this, this was her solo debut song. I remember her busking on the streets with this. I couldn’t get into the song, unfortunately. I really wanted to like it to support her, but it was just okay to me. She looked so pretty this era though. She released a new single last November, and haven’t heard much from her since then...but she started making vlogs on her YouTube channel.

#1 Red Velvet “Ice Cream Cake”
This was one of the singles off of their EP of the same name, the first releases with new member Yeri. I will always associate this song with those leaked pictures taken during the MV filming, when everyone was like “who is the 5th girl?” and “why are they in Palmdale?” lol. This is probably their big breakout, it would give the girls their first music show win, in addition to some awards at the year end shows.

Honorable Mentions

#6 Shinhwa “Sniper”

I vaguely remember this from 2015, but I found it again after a few years and I really like it now. That melody is catchy and they look good. 17 years after debut, and they still look cool. Both the song and the album it is from, “We”, would peak in the top three on the charts.

#9 Gain “Paradise Lost”
This was one of the singles off of her “Hawwah” album. Remember, it was the Bible one? The ones with all the apples and snakes. I still don't think I fully understand it, even after 12 years of Catholic school wtf I never paid attention in Religion class. Anywho, I really loved the visuals in this MV, it was so cool and she looked so gorgeous!
