One song. Every day. Alphabetical order.
Thunder (from Overdose – 2014)
Thunder has a wonderfully late-90’s/early-00’s throwback appeal. It’s an uncluttered pop/r&b track with a straightforward groove and subtle use of symphonic synths. This provides ample opportunity for EXO to showcase their vocals. Members like D.O. and Baekhyun were born for this kind of material, but there’s an irresistible smoothness to the entire group’s performance. And while nothing about Thunder really knocks you over like its title might suggest, the whole is incredibly polished and addicting. I especially like the rapid-fire bridge, which acts as an aggressive dance break that splits the track down the middle before its climactic final chorus.
