Apink is one of my favorite kpop groups, making this one of the most difficult decisions for me. It was hard for me to sit down and try to decide what my favorite songs by them are for so many different reasons. Some songs hold precious memories for me, where as others I just love the choreography or lyrics, a lot of times both. For Example, NoNoNo was the very first song I heard by APink in my brother’s living room. I was captivated by the unity of their dancing as well as their vocals. That is what led me to the discovery of APink and helped me reignite my passion for dance through their music. So, I had to make this list for my own benefit as well so I guess without further ado, let’s hop right into my favorite songs/videos.
Number 5: Only One
Now, this is a newer addition to my Apink collection. I am pretty sure I just listened to the song today as a matter of fact. However, to me, this song held up a lot of meaning in my heart which is why it has been added to this list. The vocals and lyrics hit me right in the heart, and I quickly found myself forming tears reminiscing on a time in my life when all these emotions were overflowing. Not only did the lyrics and vocals catch my heart, but the video itself. The visuals also helped me take a journey into the past and relive those emotions that I had in that time in my life. Then of course the dances. Even though you don’t see a lot of the choreography in the video, it was simple, beautiful, and meaningful. That is how “Only One” beat out so many of my old favorites in this list.
Number 4: Remember
Remember is a song about remembering a lost love and the good times that came with that love. Obviously, the lyrics are one of the main reasons Remember makes this list. However, it is not the only reason.
“Do you remember those times in our hearts. Moments that we can feel like it’s yesterday. Do you remember the sun that shone on us. The wide and blue ocean just like yesterday. As if time has stopped just like we always wanted. Remember remember remember” –APink Remember
Those lyrics hit me hard in the feels. A summer romance is a special thing that most people have. It is not hard to get lost in that. There are times when I find myself thinking back on times like that, and I can’t do anything but smile at those memories and feelings that I will always keep close to my heart.Other than that, I absolutely love the choreography to this song, and let’s get real the song is super catchy and very difficult not to dance along to. This is also one of the first APink songs I decided to learn the choreography to. Other than those two main reasons, I really like Bomi’s hair in this video. HAIR GOALS!
Number 3: I’m So Sick
CHOREOGRAPHY! CHOREOGRAPHY! CHOREOGRAPHY!!! That is why I love this song so much. Not only that, but this was one of those songs that really brought APink out of their super cute, innocent feel and made them more mature in my eyes. I learned this dance within a week. I had to because when I am upset dancing is my go to, and I’m So Sick is one of those dances that really lets me get those emotions out. The lyrics are something I can relate to as well. (Of course, isn’t that what makes favorite songs?) I was so used to the innocent APink, when I saw this video, I didn’t know what to think. The more I watched it, and the more I paid attention to the lyrics…the more and more I fell in love with this song and video. I guess at the time, I wasn’t ready for the change, but after I had accepted it. It was all fine. This is probably one of the songs I relate to the most.
Number 2: U, You
This is another newer song for me. I remember watching it like one time when I first started listening to APink, but I think I just forgot about I it, until today. This was another one I just happened to find and immediately fell in love with it. I haven’t really paid much attention to the lyrics of this one. I think I like this one so much because it is just a simple fun video that I find myself smiling at every time I watch it (which has been at least 4 times today). It really shows the member’s personalities and the adorableness that comes with them. I wish I had friends that I could do stuff like that with. The song itself is also super duper catchy. I am sure once I am more familiar with the song, I will be getting it stuck in my head and singing it all the time. It is just too cute not to add to the list
Number 1: LUV
This is my all time favorite dance, song, lyrics, everything by Apink. This song to me had everything. The video was stunning. The emotions that LUV put me through was a freaking roller coaster ride. Starting with the lyrics I guess, they mean everything to me. Although you guys do not know the story (one I plan to one day share), everything about these lyrics break my heart. I listen to this every day to find the memories that are so hard to keep.
“Do you remember the times we spent together?, L.O.V.E (LUV) Does your heart flutters? Then you were my everything, L.O.V.E (LUV) Now, I only think of you once in awhile, L.O.V.E (LUV) Can’t we turn back the time? I can’t believe it, for a while,our story has ended.” –APink LUV
On the other front, the choreography to this song is amazing. It is simple yet full of feelings. I do this dance pretty much every time I need to get pent up emotions out. There is so many feelings associated that it is my escape. This one I could do in my sleep.
I know that a lot of these had repetitive reasons for being on this list. The way I see it, music speaks to everyone in different ways. For me, my favorite songs are my favorite because the emotions and memories they bring to me. Some may be happy, some may be sad, but all of them have made me into the person that I am today. For that, I can’t be sorry.
I hope that everyone enjoyed my list of favorite APink songs. I would love to hear what everyone else’s favorites are and why. If you would like to share, you can leave me a comment. Thanks again for taking the time to share my thoughts and feelings. I hope to see everyone in the next one!!! Until next time guys!!!
