Many groups are sadly leaving and disbanding. It will obviously never be the same without these groups. I previously did goodbye posts for some of the bands disbanding. However, I am quite unhappy with them and have decided to redo them. It will take time but you can expect them soon. Essentially, I have decided on a short reflection and then will rank all their title tracks in order of preference, along with some non-title tracks.
But enough with other groups. This post is about Sistar and their amazing 7 year run! The girl group comes from Starship Entertainment and made their official debut in 2009 with Shady Girl. Throughout the seven years, the group became known for their Summer time comebacks, with many fans saying Summer is incomplete without a Sistar comeback. To know that in the future, we will never see a Summer comeback from the 4 girls (Bora, Hyorin, Soyu and Dasom) ever again, it does dampen your day quite a bit. Personally, I am a fan of the group for their bright and catchy songs. But I also love their more sexy and femme fatale sound, as well. While I don’t enjoy their earlier stuff, Sistar has come a long way with their music. As individuals as well, their solo careers have become very big topics. We all know Hyorin’s capabilities as a soloist, Soyu with her collaborations and Dasom and Bora for their acting careers. So its safe to say that while Sistar is breaking up (:() , we can still see each member doing their own thing in the future!
We can’t talk about Sistar’s career without talking about their amazing discography. 2 full-length albums, 4 mini albums, multiple singles and multiple collaborations. Talking about albums, I always wanted to do an album review for Sistar. And since I started doing them this year, I was awaiting a comeback from the girls. But now, I guess I need to spend sometime and revisit some old albums.
Below are my TOP 10 songs from SISTAR alone! It’s not influenced by any reviews or any other person. Just my honest and biased opinion!
- Give It To Me (2013)
- Shake It (2015)
- How Dare You (2010)
- I Like That (2016)
- Loving You (2012)
- I Swear (2014)
- Alone (2012)
- Touch My Body (2014)
- So Cool (2011)
- Push Push (2010)
There are many other songs that I liked from the girls that were not promoted in anyway. They include (in no particular order):
- Crying (released in 2013, as part of their second album, Give It To Me)
- Lead Me (released in 2012, as part of their first mini album, Alone)
- String (released in 2016, as part of their fourth mini album, Insane Love)
- Holiday (released in 2012, as part of their Summer special album, Loving U)
- Ok Go! (released in 2014, as part of their second mini album, Touch N Move)
Within Sistar, they have a subunit named Sistar19, which features Hyorin and Bora. While the future of this subunit is unclear, I had to mention them and their songs:
And that’s all for this short and probably badly written tribute. As I mentioned previously, I am a fan of Sistar and it doesn’t sit right with me that I am not making some sort of tribute for the girls. I always enjoy listening to them. Every now and then, I spend some time out of my day and have a Sistar listening session. Why? Because their songs are too good! I wish the girls the best for all their future endeavours.
I will shortly be posting a review for their final single as a group. And I will be looking forward to their upcoming final stages together. But in the meantime, do check out that final song, Lonely, which was released today!
