There’s something about guitars in pop songs that I really love – so it’s no surprise that many of my favourite songs feature guitars in one way or another. A lovely plucky acoustic guitar or an energetic electric guitar can really add that little something special to a song.
Get that chord, Dara!
Here are my Top 5 Songs with Guitars (in no particular order):
Park Jung Min – Beautiful
The electric guitar plays mostly a rhythmic role in this song and sets the tone for this disco-ey, groovy track. Infectious!
EXO-K – What Is Love
You can hear that guitar line already, right? On its own, it’s a weird little riff – but when it comes together with the drums and synths, it’s the smoothest thing (after D.O’s voice of course <3).
2NE1 – Ugly
LOVE the guitars in this song. Starting with an acoustic guitar building up into a heavy, electric guitar for the chorus fits perfectly with the girls and the concept of this epic anthem - Teddy, you’re a genius.
Teen Top – I Wanna Love
The guitars are more subtle in this song and take a back seat to the strong vocal melodies. The guitars float freely on top of the electronic sounds. Tasty! (like pineapple pieces)
Song Jieun – False Hope
I love a good RnB track and this one has an acoustic guitar (Double win!). Here, the guitar is responsible for all the harmony and also adds a cool groove to the track.
Some other notable mentions:
ONE OK ROCK – The Beginning
NU’EST – Hello
BoA – Only One
Alice Nine – Cross Game
G-Dragon – That XX
Oh and if you haven't seen the Henry/Chan Yeol acoustic of 1-4-3 [pictured in the header] you need to. Awesome work boys.
