One song. Every day. Alphabetical order.
Dracula (from Red Light – 2014)
Maybe it was because I grew up with Thriller, but I’ve always loved a cheesy Halloween-themed pop track. And, as gimmicky as Dracula could have been, f(x) turn it into one of their highlights. The theatrical production hits hard, incorporating creepy church organs and perfectly-placed shrieks into its stomping electro-pop base. But, it’s Dracula’s melody that really gets me going. From verse to chorus, it’s brilliantly conceived, rushing forward when it has to, pulling back for drama, and going all in for its largely-wordless chorus. This is one of the catchiest tracks in f(x)’s arsenal, and such a perfect example of pop song artifice. No need for naval-gazing symbolism here! If you’re going to make it this enjoyable, I’m fine with a silly Dracula song.
~ Rest in peace, Sulli. We will forever be grateful for the incredible music and spirit you left behind ~
