My top Kpop song picks of 2016
I’m winding down for the end of the year holed up at home resting since I’ve had ANOTHER bout of the flu! So since I have the time, why not bring you my favourite Kpop songs of 2016! Here we go.
11. Mamamoo – You’re the Best
Seriously anything by Mamamoo is good. They’ve got strong vocals and unique sounding songs. Take a listen to ‘You’re the best’ or ‘Girl crush’.
10. EXID – L.I.E.
I really enjoyed EXID’s album ‘Street’ with L.I.E being my song of choice. Otherwise, I also really love singing along to ‘hot pink’ (which sounds like pink eye to me).
9. Lee Hi – My Star
I’m glad Lee Hi managed to escape YG’s dungeon of doom to give us a new album! Her soulful voice works wonders with the retro sounding ‘My Star’.
8. Luna – Free Somebody
Luna is SOOOOOOOOO underrated. I don’t understand it! Free Somebody is the perfect song to jam to when I’m out driving! I got to see this live at KCON Paris. It was amazeballs.
7. Sistar – I Like That
Sistar is most known for their summery breezy tunes but this year they came back with the sultry and sassy ‘I Like That.’ And yes, I did like that! Sistar is one of my favourite girl bands and the chance to actually seem them live is slim to none. But glad I got to see them perform this song in the summer.
6. BTS – Fire
I didn’t really know what the fuss was about until I found out BTS would be performing at KCON Paris. I decided to give their songs a whirl because I don’t like going to concerts if I don’t know the songs! I live for (what I call) Jimin’s ‘head moving independently from the rest of his body move’ in fire.
5. Blackpink – Boombayah
I’m a bitter 2ne1 fan and I was so ready to not like Blackpink, but damn it’s impossible! They’ve got sass, they’ve got pipes and they’ve got iconic crazy dance floor moves. What’s not to love?
4. Blackpink – Whistle
This song was a slow burner but somehow….. it just gets to you. The MV is also so gorgeous. I would actually also include ‘Playing with Fire’ in my picks too but I don’t want to oversaturate my list with Blackpink.
3. Seventeen – Very Nice
Another song I got to see performed live! I had a feeling I would get to see them and so I gave their song a listen and it is indeed…very nice! It’s such a weird song but it’s so addictive and fun. If I suddenly hear this when I’m driving, I crank up the volume!!!
2. Vromance – She
Ok I like my bright and breezy songs and Vromance’s ‘She’ completely fulfils this! They’re the brother group of Mamamoo and like them, they’ve got polished vocals. I think they’re releasing a new album soon so I’m really looking forward to see what they bring to the table!
1. Red Velvet – Russian Roulette
I started listening to this on a whim and I don’t know what happened to me. It just kept going on repeat! The MV is bright but at the same time kind of creepy. I’ve never looked up the lyrics but I guess with the song title being ‘Russian Roulette’ it’s not going to about flying turtles and rainbows! And that’s why i like it.
Yes I know Bigbang released some new songs but I haven’t had the chance to repeat them! But yes, still loving them too.
