I’ll be honest with you, I’ve kind of gone off Mamamoo lately. Not to be rude but their latest comebacks have been a bit boring and they’ve kind of lost what made them so special. ‘Starry Night’ isn’t the worst song ever but it’s just so boring. And ‘Paint Me’ was even worse. I wrote this list a while ago and I’m still a big fan of these songs, I’m just not a fan of the direction Mamamoo are headed at the moment. Anyway, here are my ten favourite songs!
10. Mr Ambiguous
What an iconic debut Mamamoo had. This used to be one of my favourite songs but it’s one that I’ve listened to one too many times and I think they have better songs but I do like it. I love the choreography and pretty much everything about this song.
I didn’t really like this song when I first heard it, I thought it was a bit boring and although Mamamoo’s vocals were impressive this song just wasn’t much fun. It took a few listens but it did grow on me. I did love the iconic ‘Mamamoo is coming back for you’ line though. I wasn’t a fan of how Solar and Wheein were styled but Hwasa and Moonbyul looked absolutely stunning.
8. No More Recipe
This song’s a little strange but I still love it. It’s from their ‘Melting’ album and there’s just something about it that I really love. The songs not particularly amazing or ground-breaking or anything but I still think it’s brilliant. It’s just a fun song!
7. 1cm Taller than You
This is another one that used to be my favourite but then I listened to it one too many times. I still love this though, I love watching live versions of it and I’d love to see it live myself one day ASSUMING MAMAMOO EVER COME TO EUROPE. This song is great and I’m glad Moonbyul got more lines than she normally does because I love her.
6. Girl Crush
This song is amazing, I can’t even remember hearing it for the first time or anything but I just remember always loving it. I love Moonbyul’s parts in this as well (‘I’m freakin’ naughty girl’) and pretty much everything about it. What a great song.
5. Um Oh Ah Yeh
I’m pretty sure this is the first Mamamoo song I ever heard and I hated it! I didn’t think it was my kind of song at all. Even when I finally became a fan of Mamamoo I didn’t particularly like this song very much. I can’t remember what made me change my mind but now I love it! I love the adlib part after the middle eight. I can’t believe I didn’t like it when I first listened to it.
4. Piano Man
Even though it’s relatively simple I really like the choreography for this song. I’m pretty sure this was another song that I didn’t like at first listen because I’m more of a fan of fast, upbeat songs and even though Mamamoo sound amazing in this song I just thought it was a bit boring. But soon the song grew on me and it quickly became one of my favourites!
3. Aze Gag (Dad Jokes)
I was convinced I wouldn’t like this song, I remember looking at the promos for it and thinking ‘this isn’t going to be good’. I can’t remember why I thought that but I did. When the song was dropped I absolutely loved it at first listen. The music video is brilliant too and all the girls looked amazing. This was one of their best comebacks and I loved it!
2. You’re the Best
This was the song that turned me into a Mamamoo fan but I didn’t like the song at first. Although I preferred it to ‘Um Oh Ah Yeh’ I just wasn’t particularly feeling it on the first listen. But I did want to become a Mamamoo fan because I liked their personalities so I wanted to like their music too. So I kept returning to this song and now I truly can’t imagine disliking it. Everything about it is great from the music video, the styling, the choreography to the song itself. It’s honestly such a good song, I can’t believe there was ever a time I disliked it.
This song is 100% a cheat because it’s not actually their song, it’s a cover of Tom Jones’ song but I absolutely loved it. They sang it on Immortal Songs and it really gave Mamamoo a chance to show off their impressive vocals. I loved when they sang ‘Wait a Minute’ and ‘Stay With Me’ but ‘Delilah’ just has to take it. It starts off slow but quickly picks up and the girls vocals honestly just blow my mind every single time. Imagine being so talented.
