Top 100 K-pop songs by girl groups (2009-2022)

November 4, 2022Posted inK-pop, lists

This is the definitive, and absolutely objective, list of which K-pop girl group songs I personally like the most. To make this list I spent huge loads of time listening to all sorts of K-pop EP:s, albums and singles, which gave me a lot of insights about timelessness, trends and greatness in music, which you can read about here. It was an amazing journey.

This is the spiritual successor to my Top 100 K-pop music videos by girl groups list, which means: the same timespan (2009-2022) and almost the same "max songs per group" limit (Max 5. I can't just fill the list with all of Red Velvet's songs).

Contents:
100 - 76. Even if it was top 200, the bottom songs would still be good. So these are really good
75 - 51. Good, but not so good you have to tell your friends about it
50 - 36. A magical chorus, verse or outro that makes the whole song?
35 - 21. A varied mix of all eras
20 - 11. No bullshit, just solid songs!!
10 - 1. Experimental and weird = good?
