Flashback Friday

Happy Friday! This week flew by super fast for me. It was a weird week too. Bought $80 of Chinese takeout and a whole cake just to feel alive kind of week. 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 are going back to the 3rd week of September, 2014. All the songs have been posted before, so this time we’ll check out the comeback stages. Everyone looks good. Seriously, I’m liking all the styling here.

#3 Sistar “I Swear”
The Summer Queens released a special summer album in 2014, and “I Swear” served as the lead single. The rest of the album was basically made up of a bunch of remixes. This song was also the follow up to “Touch My Body”, which was released only a month before. I don’t remember them being out at the same time at all. Both songs would reach #1.

#2 Winner “Empty”
This was one of the two singles that the group made up their official debut. Both songs would peak in the top three, with “Empty” taking the #1 spot. They would also take their first music show win in only five days. They had such a good debut era. Remember those New York photoshoots with the huge ass photobooks? Like, I’m not a fan but I remember wanting one lol. Also, the era of Seunghoon in shorts. This stage, however, features Jinwoo in shorts.

#1 Super Junior “Mamacita”
This was the group’s first release in two years. It was released a month after Leeteuk came back from service, as well as Heechul’s comeback release as well. All I really remember about this era was thinking Donghae looked real good. It was the first time for me and I was so surprised lol. Also the Western themed MV. Busy day at MBC, both Super Junior and Sistar had their comeback stages today.

Honorable Mentions

#5 Kara “Mamma Mia”

This was the first release after Nicole and Jiyoung left the group, and the first after Youngji joined. I think that I said it when I posted the MV here before, but I admit I didn’t give this song a chance back then. I was one of the “it’s not the same” people lol. So it took me a while to warm up to it, but it’s a solid bop and joins many other Kara bops on my workout playlist. Also, I love Hara with her bouncy curly hair…so fab!

#8 Girl’s Day “Darling”
“Darling” was the follow up to “Something”, which the group released at the start of the year. And something completely different! More fun and bubbly and summery. I remember really loving this era. They’re just so damn adorable! I mean, look how damn cute bb Minah is! The song would peak at the top spot.
