Flashback Friday

I thought Wednesday was Friday and then thought Thursday was Tuesday, just in case you were wondering how my week went. Anyways! Every week I check out 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 are going back to the 4th week in August, 2008. It’s Ladies Night, Omona! And all the songs this week are dance worthy!

#3 Seo In Young “Cinderella”
I think the main reason why I remember this was because this was released while she was on WGM with Crown J. Oh those early WGM years! Also the outfits! With all the ruffled bottoms and bows. This song charted in the top ten for weeks, and was written by PSY.

#2 Davichi “War And Love”
This was the lead single from the duo’s album “Vivid Summer Edition”, which is the repackage of their successful debut album, “Amaranth”. They really had a solid debut year. Live singing with crystal clear vocals at an OUTDOOR music show? Say whaaa? And yet every year at the Gayo shows or MAMA the sound gets messed up at least once. Why are we going backwards on this?

#1 Lee Hyori “U Go Girl”
Still my most favorite Lee Hyori era. So damn adorable and sexy and I still dance along to the song. This was one of the singles off of her “It’s Hyorish” album. She was also really active on variety this year, with 3 shows and her own documentary series. This album was released a month after “Family Outing” premiered.

Honorable Mentions

#5 Uhm Jung Hwa “D.I.S.C.O”

This song would end up being one of the bestsellers of the year. The original song featured TOP, but for this stage, G-Dragon appeared for the “D.I.S.C.O Part 2” remix. This would be her last album until her comeback in 2017. She can currently been seen with this week’s #1, Lee Hyori, on a new series of Yoo Jae Suk’s “How Do You Play?”.

#7 Kara “Rock U”
This was the lead single from the group’s first mini. This was also the first release with the group’s two new members, 17 year old Hara and 14 year old Jiyoung. Babies! Sometimes I forget how young they were. I don’t really remember this song, although the music video looks familiar to me. It would peak in the top ten.
