One song. Every day. Alphabetical order.
Lollipop (from Pinocchio / Hot Summer – 2011)
Given this incredible combination of talents, you’d think that Lollipop would be one of the crown jewels within f(x)’s discography. I mean, what better act to duet with them than SHINee? Yet, the track is a little underwhelming. I love its punchy beat, but there’s not a lot more to Lollipop than that. It’s a relatively flat line all the way through, as energetic and fun as that line may be. The best moments happen when the two groups intertwine. Key’s second verse rap, backed by f(x)’s vocals, is a real treat. But, the song is in desperate need of a melodic chorus to counter the oft-repeated “lollipop” chant. Funny enough, these are the exact same criticisms I have about 2NE1 and Bigbang’s Lollipop released a couple of years prior. Two awesome combinations… two songs that needed a bit more oomph.
~ Rest in peace, Sulli. We will forever be grateful for the incredible music and spirit you left behind ~
