Favorite Girls’ Generation Song – Readers Poll
Girls’ Generation are one of the most internationally recognized K-Pop groups, with their catchy singles catching on not only in their native South Korea, but also Japan, the United States, and other places throughout the globe. The reason their appeal stretches so far and wide is because of the 9-piece girl group’s capability to captivate with their undeniable chemistry, harmonious vocals and bubbly, uptempo beats.
Although they may be a new name to many Americans, Girls’ Generation have actually been active since 2007, with a bunch of LPs and EPs already linked to their name. The question on our minds now is, out of all of the official singles released internationally by Girls’ Generation, which is your absolute favorite track?
In 2007, the ladies dropped their eponymous debut album in South Korea, and with it the singles ‘Into the New World,’ ‘Girls’ Generation,’ ‘Kissing You‘ and ‘Baby Baby.’ They followed up their success with their first-ever No. 1 single in South Korea, ‘Gee,’ off of the EP of the same name. The nonet didn’t waste any time though, landing yet another chart-topping song in their homeland with ‘Tell Me Your Wish (Genie),’ sometimes simply referred to as ‘Genie.’
Girls’ Generation kept the momentum going with their retro-pop version of ‘Chocolate Love,’ which hit No. 3 on the Korean charts. However, that would be one of the last times they wouldn’t find themselves sitting pretty at No. 1, as the singles ‘Oh!,’ ‘Run Devil Run‘ and ‘Hoot‘ all consecutively skyrocketed to the tip-top position.
In 2010, their non-album, Intel-sponsored single ‘Visual Dreams‘ peaked at No. 10, but that was followed by yet another piece of chart gold, with their English-recorded single ‘The Boys‘ impacting the top spot. It’s so awesome to hear the flawless gals sing in English, mostly because we were absolutely stoked that we could actually sing along this time!
Girls’ Generation kept on cranking out the singles throughout the years leading up to the present, releasing amazingly infectious tracks in Japan, South Korea and the U.S. The tracks ‘Bad Girl,’ ’Mr. Taxi,’ ‘Dancing Queen‘ (a revamped version of Duffy’s hit song ‘Mercy’), ‘I Got a Boy,’ ‘Time Machine,’ ‘Paparazzi,’ ‘All My Love Is for You‘ and ‘Flower Power‘ round out the Girls’ Generation discography for now, but we’re sure there will plenty of other tracks to choose from in the future.
