3.6.5 (from XOXO / Growl – 2013)

3.6.5 feels like a good track to end this (seemingly endless) K-Pop A-Z segment. It’s not a complicated or groundbreaking song, but it’s an unusually potent burst of pop energy within EXO’s discography. The track materialized at the height of One Direction’s international popularity, and you can definitely hear the influence. Punchy guitar, sprightly percussion and an anthemic chorus combine to forge one of EXO’s easiest, breeziest pop tracks. Don’t underestimate it just because it plays things safe. Its candy-coated hooks will sneak up on you before you know it.
