I wanted to do a rundown of my top ten kpop songs of 2014. Unfortunately my computer completely died on me in the summer so you’re getting my Top Ten pop songs for the last half of 2014! This is based on the no. of plays so far.
So here it is!
10. CN BLUE – Can’t Stop
I think this song would have ranked a lot higher had my computer not wiped out my stats! The song has the perfect blend of slow pensive piano tinkling and on the flip side, it’s the perfect wind down your windows drum pumping pop! Not to mention it has a really great hook. It’s nothing fancy but when the song finally kicks, I want to sing in that same quivery voice ‘Can’t Stop me now…’ Ah Cn Blue, one day I will see you live!
9. UKISS – Hana
UKISS are terribly underrated. They’ve got a lot of classics under their belt. I particularly love their ballads and this song is no exception! 😀
8. HENRY – Bad Girl
I hadn’t realised how much I listened to Henry’s album and then found this song had popped into my top ten. Although Henry is getting his solo work and appearances on variety shows. I would really like it if they used his talent! Have you seen him play the violin and the piano? I don’t really know idols who can play like that!
7. SISTAR – Touch My Body
I really hate watching people dance in their pants. It feels like an incomplete outfit! I can’t be dealing with that. So I half like this mv but anyway, I do like Sistar and I like this song. It’s summery and poppy. I haven’t looked up the lyrics but I’m guessing it might be feel good? 😀 I’m the type who likes Bubblepop so I’m ok with this!
6.75 SUPER JUNIOR – This is Love
This is a smooth song with smooth vocals and the smoothest mv ever. I love to watch how everything fits together. So slick! When I first heard the album, I really liked this song as well. It’s not overly fussy or over processed and that’s the beauty of this song. I am also grateful for this song because it gave this hilarious gift from Siwon and Ryeowook.
6.5 SUPER JUNIOR – Shirt
I didn’t want to have Super Junior filling up this chart but that’s the way the cookie crumbles. They’re in at number 6.5 (ok I’m cheating) with ‘SHIRT’. It’s here mostly for the butt slapping dance. Nice one.
6. SUPER JUNIOR – Mamacita
It’s a water melon loving, head smacking fantastic song! I already said stuff about this song which you can read here!
5. SOYOU & JUNNGGIGO – Some
I would never have known about this cute song if it were not for NANA and SEHO (roommates) lip syncing it. I’m so glad this song has been winning some of the end of the year awards. It truly deserves the accolades it has been receiving. I’ve already mooned about this song here.
4. GIRL’S DAY – Darling
I was looking for some more girl groups to listen to this year and I randomly found this song by Girl’s Day. Are you appalled at my love for cute and cheesy songs? Come to the dark side and join me!
3. TAETISEO – Holler
It started becoming ear wormy when I watched Taetiseo’s behind the scenes show and they played it continuously. The brain washing worked wonders! HOLLER HOLLER HOLLER!
2. K.WILL – Day 1.
This is just ADORABLE and a really NICE song! I already said lots of nice things here in my review. A well deserved no.2!
1. GOT7 – A.
I’m a SLOW follower of kpop. I don’t know anything about nugu groups but somewhere and somehow – GOT7 have popped out of literally nowhere. I’m enjoying what they’ve contributed so far and I think they are a really promising rookie group. ‘A’ is a great song and it’s really easy to sing along to. Everyone with me now ‘AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!’
