One song. Every day. Alphabetical order.
Love Me Right (from Love Me Right – 2015)
Released at the height of EXO’s funk-pop era, Love Me Right is a dynamo of a comeback. Right from the start, the instrumental deposits us into the groove, like a warp portal to percussive pleasure. The production is incredibly sticky, melding a hard-hitting dance beat to endless doses of rhythm guitar. From here, the melody takes the reins and doesn’t let go. Lesser songs would try to play around with the formula, zig-zagging here and there. But, Love Me Right never forgets the immense power of its groove. By the time the instrumental drops to hand-claps and vocals, the audience is out of their seats, slaves to the rhythm. This all turns out to be a wonderful match for EXO’s amiable vocals, which swagger through the track with freewheeling glee. Love Me Right is a robust slab of pop song perfection — all killer, no filler.
