The Year’s Best 2013 [Mid-Year Picks]

The Year's Best 2013

This year Asia 24/7 will digging through the hottest beats, and hottest of messes to launch its FIRST EVER best songs list, “The Year’s Best,” starting with 25 picks of the best songs from January to the beginning of June. Everyday, for the next 6 days, a new page with 5 songs from the list will be revealed, along with my reason for picking them, plus honorable mentions! Without further ado, lets dive right into the first 5 picks:

3집 - Grown고백 (Go Back) | Release: May 6, 2013 | [Listen] [Review]

by 2pm

2pm’s Honorable Mentions: 하.니.뿐. (A.D.T.O.Y), 이 노래를 듣고 돌아와 (Listen to This Song and Come Back)

2pm’s comeback album did fall short of my expectation, BUT it did have a few gems, and “고백 (Go Back)” was one of them. It was familiar for me, but not so much that I felt like I was listening to just any 2pm song. Unlike in the past, I was very impressed with Junho’s songwriting skills after listening to this song.

The 5th Album Vol. 2- 'Thank You'청혼하는 거예요 (Proposal Song) | Release: January 28, 2013 | [Listen]

by 포맨 (4men)

4men’s Honorable Mentions: “안녕 나야 (Hello, It’s Me),” “넌 나의 빛 (You’re My Light)”

4men can really do no wrong, everything about this song was perfection. It has everything you listen to a 4men song for, good vocals, good harmonization, and Shin Yong Jae’s perfect vocals.

3집 - The 3rd Album Part 2 '러브블러썸'Marry Me | Release: April 4, 2013 | [Listen]

by 케이윌 (K.Will)

K.Will’s Honorable Mentions: Lay Back, 러브블러썸 (Love Blossom), 신호등 앞에서 (Fade Out)

K.Will continued his streak of good music with part two of his third album, and it was hard picking just one song for this list, but, “Marry Me” stood out the most. Since introducing to the world, his Wheesung imitation, I’ve found a hear it in his songs a lot, but with “Marry Me,” I heard K.Will all the way. A proposal song isn’t anything inventive in the world of Kpop, but this song was no less sweet.

이게 무슨 일이야_ (What's Going On_)이게 무슨 일이야? (What is Going On?) | Release: May 8, 2013 | [Listen]

by 비원에이포 (B1A4)

B1A4  was B1A4 with this song. This song had to grow on me, but I’ve realized they’ve grown up as a group and I didn’t even see it coming.

Fly High못해 (I Can’t) ft. 개코 (Gaeko) | Release: January 11, 2013 | [Listen] [Review]

by 인피니트 H (Infinite H)

Infinite H’s Honorable Mentions: 니가 없을 때 (Without U) ft. Zion.T

Of all the songs from this album, “못해 (I Can’t)” was one of two that I could tolerate. This unit group was a let down, and it shed some light on the ability, or inability, of the members to branch out from the group. Gaeko’s skill, and talent really dominated this song, which could be the reason I loved it so much.
