Welcome to DatJoeDoe Show's Joe's Blog!! This week he's paying homage to 2NE1.

2NE1 disbanded last November (I still cant’t believe it) and today marks what would have been their 8th anniversary. To pay homage I decided to make a list of my favourite 2NE1 songs that ruled my iTunes over the years.

Here are my top five 2NE1 songs of all time:

1. Fire

Fire was 2NE1’s debut single back in 2009. Who could forget that epic intro by CL; “You better get yours because I’m getting mine!” It showed they weren’t just another cute girl group on the block, they were bad ass females who came to take over.

“You better ring the alarm!”

2. Gotta Be You

I fell in love with this song as soon as I heard it. The smooth vocals, catchy chorus and funky beat meant I had this on repeat for days - not to mention the colourful music video. Definitely one of my faves.

“It ain’t till it’s over..."

3. Ugly 

This song has a deeper meaning. Forget party songs, this song is all about you as a person - about not being perfect. It's a song that I feel a lot of people can relate to, myself included. Amazing track.

“Just like her I wanna be pretty."

4. Lonely

This track is about falling out of love. It taps in to the emotions from when you stop feeling the same way about your significant other and don’t feel comfortable with them anymore but can’t explain the feeling. Another classic.

“I’m so lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely.”

5. I Am The Best

This is how I’ll always remember 2NE1, as the best. 'I Am The Best’ shows off 2NE1 at their, well, best. This oozes confidence and swagger. Its got over 160 million views on YouTube which proves how influential it was. An instant classic!

Naega Jeil Jal Naga!"

Listening to all those 2NE1 songs has made me feel nostalgic. They were one of the best female K-pop groups of all time and they’ll truly be missed #THANKYOU2NE1 #2NE1toINFINI8Y
