K-pop group Girls' Generation ranked fifth on U.S. news weekly magazine Time`s "Top 10 Songs of 2013" with "I Got a Boy".
"The nine-woman South Korean group Girls' Generation is a ridiculously effective hook machine, and a major phenomenon in Asia, whose biggest pop acts make One Direction and Katy Perry sound like audience-alienating avant-gardists", the magazine said in an article posted on its Website Wednesday. "If you like songs that do everything at once, go straight to YouTube and call up the over-the-top video for this monomaniacally charming hybrid of bubblegum, dubstep and hard rock.
"I Got a Boy" also beat the music videos of Psy, Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber to win the top award for video of the year at the inaugural YouTube Music Awards.
On top of the list was "Get Lucky" by French electronic music duo Daft Punk, while emerging New Zealand singer Lorde`s "Royals", which remains at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart for the ninth consecutive week, ranked 10th
