Recently, Billboard revealed their list of the '100 Greatest Girl Group Songs Of All Time'The list included five idol girl groups representing K-Pop.  


Starting at number 88, first generation girl group Fin.K.L made their name known with the title song "Now" released in 2000.  Taking charge of 70th place was Red Velvet with "Dumb Dumb" released in 2015.  The description states, "There are pop hooks that grab you, and then there are hooks that strangle you and absolutely refuse to let go. Red Velvet's "Dumb Dumb" epitomizes that latter, with the quirky quintet repeating the word "dumb" more than 200 times throughout this single..."  Standing strong at 59th was f(x)'s "Rum Pum Pum Pum" from 2013.


Wonder Girls' hit song "Nobody" took the 43rd spot which was released in 2008.  Girls' Generation was the top K-pop girl group on the list at 21 for their poppy tune "I Got a Boy" released in 2012.  The description is as follows, "...I Got a Boy" is what happens when the greats strive to get greater, with this multi-genre, tempo-shifting Frankenstein's-monster jam that jumps from drum 'n' bass to bubblegum hooks to Aguilera-esque belt sections..."


Billboard's number one track for a girl group was The Ronettes' "Be My Baby" released in 1963 and the list included other notable girl groups like the Spice Girls, Destiny's Child, Dream, and TLC.

Must say I'm a *little* surprised that 2NE1's I am the best didn't made the list, since it was used in commercials in USA, but that's also my wishful blackjack thinking

Red Velvet, as expected ;)

"UP & DOWN" Song by EXID Group is the BIG MISSING SONG to me. The "UP & DOWN"  Song itself is okay. BUT the *story* behind the *success* of it ; *nothing* else comes close in K-pop Lore.

EXID Group interview on the 'Success Story' of 'Up & Down' Song. Has ENGLISH Language SUBTITLES! (Dec. 2014)

Wonder Girls "Nobody"  Love this song soooo much!  One of my all time favorite!  This was the song that started it all for me!  The moment I fell in love with WG, JYPN, and all of KPOP <3    And I am shocked that 2ne1 is not on the list! WTH??!!!!  They have many many amazing songs!  and "I am the Best"  is one of the best kpop song of all time!  SMH @ Billboard.

Really surprised as to how I am the best by 2ne1 didn't make it,  it's weird that song topped all major charts in and out of Korea, maybe they're not into hiphopish sorta of songs, anyways all the above mentioned songs r great n definitely deserve to be on the list

Congrats to all the groups on there <3

miekochie Wednesday, July 12, 2017

congrats to all, but To be honest among those 5 kpop girl groups songs Only IGAB and NOBODY deserve to be in this ranking of billboards 100 greatest girl group songs of ALL times. the rest NOT!..... I think 2ne1's song should be in this rank.

SO PROUD OF ALL THESE KPOP GIRL GROUPS AND SHOUT OUTS TO MA FAVS DESTINYS CHILD AND SPICE GIRLS!! GIRL POWER!!!!

krell Wednesday, July 12, 2017

(NOT Joking) Personally, I think that the SNSD Song featured at Number 21 should be rather the "RUN DEVIL RUN" Song. What with the *long* list of CORRUPT S.KOREAN PRESIDENTS !!! ...

RUN DEVIL DEVIL RUN RUN --> (S.K Prez) PARK GEUN HYE and (Friendly Witch Doctor) CHOI SOON SIL ...
