It was only a matter of time before I would dive into the colorful and delightful world of K-Pop. For those that have been living under the biggest rock in the deepest hole on Earth, K-Pop is Korean pop music that takes what we consider pop music and put it all to shame to where even Madonna would cry if she didn’t get her tear ducts allegedly removed. They also include some English in there which is a nice if you want a slight idea what they are singing about.
Today, I’m just going to go over Queens of K-pop, Girl’s Generation. Also known as SNSD, Girl’s Generation is an eight piece girl group that has pretty taken the world in the palm of their hand. It’s only fitting that I countdown their best and catchy work. Now, unless there is an English version of the song, it won’t be based on lyrics. It’s just going to be on beat and mainstream appeal. So let’s get started.
5. “Run Devil Run”
Originally a demo performed by Kesha, “Run Devil Run” is just a catchy dance song that will make you run with them. There’s even two different version of them in the music video, which is just amazing on its own. Personally, I like the evil version of them over the good.
This is just an infectious song that you will have in your head, even if it’s just the English words in the chorus. Turn it on and you will just get a smile on your face because it just that infectious. It’s probably what most people think of when they think of K-Pop. Even the dance moves will make you smile.
3. “Catch Me If You Can”
When a K-Pop girl group impresses the likes of Zedd and Skrillex with their single in EDM, you know you are doing something right. “Catch Me if You Can” is their first full try into the genre and EDM and they smashed it. It catchy and then the music video makes you want to run away with them. The dance break during the chorus is what dreams are made of.
2. “I Got a Boy”
This song is everything! It broke the mold of K-Pop to become their second major hit internationally. It combined different western styles of music and threw them into your face like they have been doing it for years. Then their music video is just a masterpiece and all of the place but yet, brings everything together so well. It probably their best video from a visual standpoint.
1. “The Boys”
It’s the song that brought onto US soil. It’s an extremely catchy song with a music video that just visually appeals to the eyes. Their dance moves on this are pretty much on fleek. Their English was actually rather good for only really two of them speaking it fluently. This song is just iconic. They even did a remix of it with Snoop Dogg.
