Yey! 2NE1’s I Love You made it into another list of best songs in 2012! ❤ Even though they released only one song this year, the song still got a lot of achievements and made it into different lists of best songs! I’m so proud of the girls! ^_^

The Top 15 K-Pop Singles of 2012

 1. 2NE1 – ‘I Love You’

With a few “oo-wa-oooh, oo-wa-ooohs,” ‘I Love You’ combines the the best bits of pop into a rarefied cavalcade of amazingness. It’s essentially a Xenomania-style medley-in-a-song. The song starts off with an ‘I Feel Love’-esque disco gloss, but transforms into a monster about 40 seconds from the end with a spill-your-drink synth explosion. CL, Minzy, Bom and Dara also rhyme “I love you every day in every way” with “neol saranghae,” the Korean for ‘I love you.’ This is the song that made me most excited about pop this year. You hear something new every time you listen to it.

Best Bit: The shots of Dara among red lanterns in the snow from 1:04 – 1:16, among Mad Men sillhouettes, who – pouf! – disappear into thin air.

Check out Big Bang’s Blue at 2nd place and all the other songs on their list below!

2. Big Bang – ‘Blue’

There were other Big Bang videos that were more instantly iconic this year, but ‘Blue’ was the ‘Diamonds’ to the ‘Where Have You Been’ of ‘Fantastic Baby’. ‘Blue’ is Not A Banger, but it subtly morphs and builds into a non-boring slowburn anthem, punctuated by G-Dragon’s occasional croon “I’m singing my blu-oo-ooos.” I’ve no idea what they’re talking about, but the breakdown at 3:18 always makes me feel a bit funny, just before it kicks back in and they’re singing their blues again, and singing their blues some more. Despite the song’s non-banger status, Taeyang still manages to get a pirouette in there, too.

Best Bit: The bit where T.O.P pops the collar of his jacket at 02:11. Just amazing.
