Sometimes when you listen back to some bops from the past you can really tell they were a product of their time :sanapray:
That doesn't mean you can't still enjoy them but they definitely sound dated lol.

While some other songs could still be released today and fit right in with the current soundscape.

Which are your fav dated and timeless songs? :susPepe:

I think back during 2009-2011, when Kpop was in its honeymoon phase with autotune and overused the shit out of it, if you listen to it now, they very much sound like songs from their time. Still, it gave us some classics lol.



Meanwhile some songs I think could still fly today and do just as well:


Similarly, many songs from the last 2-3 years, esp the ones following the beat drop trends, tropical house, EDM drops and other styles will sound dated in a few years, they'll still be enjoyable but you can tell which era they're from lol.
Anyway, post some of your faves :pepeheart:

For convenience, let's stick to songs more than 5 years old :susPepe:

U-KISS forbidden love is still a bop
Ayy I actually remember that lmao.

Also this nugu bop by Ze:A :sanapray:


Although you don't hear sound like this in modern Kpop unless Golden Child sometimes or some other groups but it could still be from any era.

YASSSS at Heartbreaker. Gosh I remember when I first found GD and was infatuated to the heavens with him. I listened to ALL of his songs. Also Fantastic Baby has aged well too.

exo call me baby

:maheart:
i might be the only one who thinks so
EXO's Growl is 8yrs old in August, but it still feels like it could be their next title track now.
I think EXO in general has a run of titles that could really sound fresh in any age lol, except like their super early stuff and Obsession which sound like they belong strictly in a certain time period.
But even Lucky One, Love me right or their winter ballads could release now and people would think they're new songs.

YASSSS at Heartbreaker. Gosh I remember when I first found GD and was infatuated to the heavens with him. I listened to ALL of his songs. Also Fantastic Baby has aged well too.
Lol yeah Heartbreaker is heavily autotuned but I actually still love it :sj_weary:
You def wouldn't see him release something like that today tho lmao.

Anything Sweetune does is pretty timeless, they're my fav producers in Kpop and I think they did their best work with Infinite :sj_weary:


Timeless masterpiece :sanapray:
Not just the song, MV too

Same goes for:
Catallena legit top 5 gg titles all time for me lol.
