EDIT: NOW WITH LINKS!

JESUS I went through a list of 423 kpop songs with female artists for this. That was harsh. But I have a list now!

Sorry for making it a mess, but I want to include commentary.

1. OOHYO - Youth Day

Something about this track is so magical and touching to me. When I listened to it for the second time, I was almost moved to tears. No other song came even close to that kind of an emotional response, so I think I had no choice but to place it as #1.

2. Oh my girl - Windy Day

I kind of wanted to include one uplifting, innocent song on the list, but this task was a bore until I found this song. It has everything you want from an uplifting, 'pure image' song without being boring; it even has some surprising little touches in the instrumental, I thought. It slayed every other song of its kind to the extent I wanted to give it a high rank.

3. BLACKPINK - BOOMBAYAH

As a sort of hard club dance song (?) this song is not a genre I normally like, but I think it's a beast of its genre to the extent that even I can appreciate it. This song has no apologies for anyone. When I was going through the tracks again I found I could not stop listening to this song and skip to the next one; that's why it's #3.

4. Ladies' Code - Galaxy

Beautiful, otherworldly.

5. Lazmod - Parallel Lines

Synth heaven. Soothing vocals. I guess this is my quirky indie pick-up. I really really like it lol.

6. Kisum - 2 Beer

My favourite hip hop/rap song that I came across. Chillax. Another song I didn't want to stop listening to.

7. SISTAR - Giorgio Moroder One More Day

Solid 'dramatic', srs bsnss song. I was concerned I only first liked the song because it had a lesbian storyline in the MV :lol: but I listened to it again without looking at the video and that turned out not to be a case.

8. Wonder Girls - Why So Lonely

WG kind of manages to do something a little different but still be trendy and fresh at the same time. As usual.

9. MAMAMOO - Décalcomanie

The badass women song of my list. Reminds me of the "good old days" of Kpop with KARA's Lupin etc.

10. The Barberettes - Love Shoes (feat. Stuart Zender)

Bass. The song and MV are both really fun, I like their voices and this is relaxing to listen to, as well.

Honorable mention:
Lee Jin Ah - I'm Full


Lee Jin Ah has a very quirky, cutesy voice and I generally like what she does lol.

AKMU - How people move

AKMU is definitely different and deserves some props for that. This song was almost too all over the place for me, though. :lol:

9muses a - lip 2 lip

This is a solid bop :3

MAMAMOO - 1CM (Taller than you)

My favourite funny song of the year that I can appreciate even as a short person.



EDIT: DAmn, I was hoping to vote at least one same song that someone else has voted before, but no such luck :lol: :lol: :lol:

1. Taeyeon - 11:11
2. Mamamoo - New York
3. Mamamoo - Decalcomanie
4. Taeyeon - Why
5. Taemin - Drip Drop

Literally that is all I got. I have dropped off the kpop listening this year. XD If you had a video game ost ranking, I think I would be able to populate that better. XD

Oh hello! :w00t: Just started listening to Kpop again a few months ago so my list is pretty comprised of what I've been liking.

Edit: Oh what the hell, I'll add some commentary too LOL

1. Blackpink - Whistle

OH MY GOD I love this song so much XD I really don't know why but I find myself singing it all the time and grooving to it and I just think it's catchy af. Love Jennie's rap parts bc she has just as much swag as Lisa imo.

2. Blackpink - Playing With Fire

Very close second bc goddamn, Blackpink dominated 2016. I sing along to this song a lot too and I really like the lyrics. It's a good balance of upbeat and catchy but also somewhat emotional.

3. EXID - L.I.E

UGH my new bias group :inlove: Kinda along the same lines of Playing With Fire in that it's upbeat but not necessarily a happy song? Love love the breakdown!

4. Sistar - I Like That

My second bias group! As much as I love their happy, fun summer anthems, this was a welcome change. Sultry and sexy with a lot of great harmonies, I'm especially into the slowdown during the chorus. Only wish Bora got more lines...and perhaps Soyou too. Happy that Dasom is getting her shine but it's at the expense of the other two.

5. Wonder Girls - Why So Lonely

I forgot how vocally beautiful (and visually too hehe) WG is~ Yubin singing is always refreshing bc she really is more than just a rapper. Really chill song, reminds me of a summer day.

6. Blackpink - Boombayah

Freakin epic song, ridiculously catchy and fun and just gangsta enough. Blackpink in your goddamn area, nuff said.

7. EXID - Don't Wanna Drive/Will You Take Me

My favorite song from the Street album, aside from L.I.E. Feels like a first love song to me, going out on a first date and wanting to prolong the time together a bit (LOL not my own experience).

8. TWICE - TT

Wasn't gonna rank this at first but the more I listened to it, the more I started to like it. Fun song with a lot of cute voices.

9. Hyuna - Morning Glory

An adorable song, nice change from Hyuna's usual borderline raunchiness lolol.

10. Jay Park feat. Gray - Drive

I hate to admit that I enjoy some of Jay Park's music (not the ridiculously overdone "gangsta" rap) but I was hella feeling this song. Ideal balance of singing and rapping. Abundance of English makes it easy to sing along to haha :nervous

Honorable mentions:

Hyolyn - Love Like This

Hyolyn put out some pretty solid solo tracks this year and this was immediately my favorite. Enough hip hop to make it more interesting than a ballad but not so much that it compromises her vocals. Her voice is soothing and reliable, you know you're in for a lovely auditory experience. I'm a fan of Dok2's voice too.

Hyuna - U&Me♡

Another uncharacteristically cute song lol I still find her voice pretty sexy here at times though, that breathiness heh

Red Velvet - Russian Roulette

Was NOT a fan at first, probably because I found the title misleading? I expected something more intense (like Spica's Russian Roulette) instead of a cutesy song but I will give it props for being catchy.

4minute - Canvas

I saw a comment on tumblr that said this song would be great for stripping and my god I can't get that idea out of my head LOL it's a pretty sexy song, especially the crescendo of the chorus...I can very much appreciate that buildup.

EXID - Hello (Hani Solo)

UGH Hani doesn't get enough credit for her beautiful, jazzy voice.

Jay Park - Aquaman

Don't care much for the song itself but the lyrics made even me blush a little LOL :oops:

EDITED!!!

1. Ailee - Home
2. Blackpink - Playing with Fire
3. Mamamoo - Words Don’t Come Easy
4. Mamamoo - My Hometown
5. Mamamoo - You’re the Best
6. Mamamoo - Funky Boy
7. Mamamoo - 고양이 (Cat Fight)

10. Big Bang - If You

LOL I used this to make my ranking because I like all these songs a lot. My only definites were Home at 1 and Playing with Fire at 2.

Honorable Mentions:
As you can see, I fell head over heels in love with Mamamoo this weekend so I kicked out these other lovely songs from my original ranking. I nearly put the whole Melting album on the list ahahaha

Hyuna - U & Me ♡
BTS - Blood Sweat & Tears
SISTAR - I Like That
EXID - L.I.E.
Hello Venus - Paradise

^ lol kimuu I actually coded something myself for this ahaha... spent more time coding than actually ranking, typical me... XD feel free to use tho.
Stoked to see so many old-timers returning to vote, much love y'all! :jphip:  I'll try to rouse even more people from their slumber. :P

Yeah, figured I'd get my list out sooner than usual (which is at best, last minute) and just tweak it later if I feel like it. So here goes:

--

TOP 10

01. Blackpink - Playing With Fire
02. Ladies' Code - Galaxy
03. Blackpink - Whistle
04. Ladies' Code - The Rain
05. Wonder Girls - Why So Lonely
06. Blackpink - Stay
07. Kisum - 2 Beer
08. Blackpink - Boombayah
09. Oh My Girl - Liar Liar
10. AOA - 10 Seconds

--

YG's new girlgroup was something I had been looking for since forever, since it always seemed like it would be a bit more my style than the majority of girl groups around, but I never expected Blackpink to be this perfect for me. Style, music, girls, everything. So it was obvious they'd dominate my list. I loved PWF since the first teaser with the piano and the beat, and the full song just hit it out of the park. Whistle was awesome and unique, Stay was yet another facet of the group and sounded like nothing you usually get from a kpop group. And yeah, I know, four songs... I actually actively tried to push BBY out of my top 10 but nothing compared favorably enough to me... it's just too much bombastic, ridiculous fun.

The new three-member incarnation of Ladies' Code was my other big favorite musically this year. I always really liked the group and their happier vibes when Eunb and Rise (RIP) were still around before their tragic accident... but moving on, they revamped their style in extremely tasteful fashion and now have this kind of ethereal, mysterious and a little bit sad sound. And I love it, there's absolutely no pity points in my votes. I contemplated on having Galaxy as my #1 track until the very end.

•  Wonder Girls didn't set the kpop world on fire like last year, but they still put out a really good, mellow track in Why So Lonely.
•  Kisum really surprised me, I thought she was cute and spunky on Unpretty Rapstar, but I didn't expect her music to be THIS good.
•  Oh My Girl didn't really hit the jackpot this year like they did with Closer, but I found Liar Liar a lot of fun. The quirky music video helps too.
•  AOA's 10 seconds completely evaded me until last week, hiding inside their mini-album. Smooth and unapologetically retro, a good way into my heart.


Honorable mentions:

•  Kisum - No Jam - 2 Beer was the better song, but No Jam has an AWESOME music video.
•  K.A.R.D - Oh Nana - I was kiiinda digging the song and then I saw this "fun" version of their dance practice and they're really growing on me now. The way they're doing co-ed (girls singing, guys rapping) is something I can appreciate.
•  Red Velvet - Russian Roulette, Cool Hot Sweet Love - Solid tracks, RR especially, just not quite there.
•  Neon Bunny - Room314 - She put out an album this year, but I thought all the best tracks were from previous years, Room314 was really good though.
•  Luna - Free Somebody - Fine track, and Luna is always a pleasure and can do no wrong.
•  Cosmic Girls - Secret - A really solid track that I hope takes them places.... just not really my style, but I can still appreciate.
•  f(x) - All Mine - Fun, solid track but didn't stand out enough I suppose... I even dug the ghetto mv production haha.
•  Bolbbalgan4 - You(=I) - This was cute, really really cute (thanks forthisgift storyboard!) (lmao wrong person thanked, whoops xD)

First I wanna say it's beautiful to see people posting their favorite Kpop songs.  :cry:

Second, 2016 was a solid year for Kpop. Although I didn't struggle too much to figure out this list, there were songs I absolutely adored this year.

I will also do commentary for my list cause I like explaining/defending my choices.

1. Luna - Free Somebody
2. Luna - Galaxy
3. Luna - Keep On Doin'

Case in point: I absolutely adored/loved/worshiped/Any-Other-Synonym-Of-Enjoyed Luna's solo EP. I always felt as though if she got a shot to do some solo stuff she could be good. I didn't realize it would be one of my favorite music project released this year, period. Yes, I also think I'm crazy to put 3 Luna songs at the top, but I'm following my heart. I'm gonna be so excited to watch Luna perform her solo songs the next time f(x) does a concert. Putting fake money on it now, it will probably be my favorite song performed on their next blu-ray concert release.

4. Red Velvet - Russian Roulette

Outside of Luna, Red Velvet was immediately the second act I thought of for this list. This has Orange Caramel vibes, so I dig it. Although SM as a whole was hit and miss for me, when they hit, they were home runs. Or at least a double. Baseball.

5. Kisum - No Jam

If you were gonna tell me that someone from Unpretty Rapstar would make my list, I would have doubted you. But here we are. Yo Kisum's music is really good.

6. Sunny Hill - On The Way Home

After Darling of All Hearts, Sunny Hill's music was really doing much for me. But damn this song, more specifically this MV tugged at my heart strings. THESE FOUR WOMEN WHO ARE LIVING THEIR LIVES RELUCTANTLY CHOOSE TO GO HOME AND VISIT FAMILY FOR REASONS BUT THEY REALIZE THAT HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS AND SOMETIMES YOU NEED TO RECENTER YOURSELF ESPECIALLY WHEN LIFE IS KINDA SHITTY. I enjoyed this more than I thought I would.  :lol:

7. Wonder Girls - Why So Lonely

Color me disappointed when WG didn't realize a full project. They were never bad, but from Like This to now, they have put out some great music, even with member changes. Good on you. Please more music next time.

8. Ladies Code - Galaxy

Aye, two songs named Galaxy. I am one of those people who didn't listen to Ladies Code till after EunB and Rise passed. I feel bad about this fact because when I did listen, I really dug it. Hindsight, right? Well I'm paying attention now and damn Galaxy is smooth as hell. More power to you, ladies.

9. AKMU - Re-Bye

So glad I had a friend link me this song, because I would have never found out about them otherwise. It's not a banger or anything, but it's a nice tune.

10. Clazziquai Project - Speak of Love

Did anyone else know the group's name is Clazziquai Project? I didn't. Anyway, it's a mellow beat with a cute video to match.

Honorable Mentions

f(x) - All Mine

I listened to a lot of 4 Walls this year. Between that, Luna, the blu-ray concert, and All Mine, f(x) went from a group I really liked to a group that probably made my all-time favorites. Yeah, f(x) is fucking awesome.

Blackpink - Playing With Fire

Unfortunately, Blackpink didn't really do much for me. I get they are the second coming of 2ne1 in a lot of ways, but still not a fan. That being said, Playing With Fire was a song that surprised me. Perhaps Blackpink one day will make my list.
I vote for TOZ as the most gangsta~  :otomerika:

What's with the lack of Twice?  :O2

Let's do this!

01. Blackpink - Boombayah
02. Blackpink - Stay
03. Twice - Cheer Up
04. 4Minute - Hate
05. Gfriend - Rough
06. Blackpink - Playing with Fire
07. Twice - TT
08. Suzy - Ring My Bell
09. I.O.I. - Dream Girls
10. Oh My Girl - Liar Liar

Random thoughts:
- Blackpink just pwnd this entire year. Great tracks, fun girls.
- Twice's music is getting a little less interesting with each release. I fear Like Ooh-Aah will forever be their best.
- 4Minute's Hate is just killer. Listened to it a lot, especially at work, haha.
- Gotta love a good ballad, so when Suzy has one it's even better. Gotta love Suzy.
- I realize Dream Girls isn't that good of a song, but I'm a sucker for pastel, haha.
- I considered AOA's Good Luck, but that was just too repetitive and nineties to make the list.

The votes have been tallied, and results are below. I've also made a Youtube playlist of all songs that got at least 8 points in the vote, so if I you want to get your results that way:

YouTube Playlist for JPHiP's Best Kpop Song of 2016 - TOP 37

The playlist starts from the tied 28th position songs and finishes with number 1. Everyone just looking for the results can move onwards to the next post.

SPOILERS BELOW





























































Hey Boy



•  The winner of the vote with 53 points and a comfortable lead is Blackpink with the quietly explosive Whistle.





•  Second place with 39 points also goes to Blackpink and their sizzling hot Playing With Fire.





•  Third place with 30 points goes to last year's champs Oh My Girl for Step By Step / One Step, Two Steps.



Random thoughts

•  14 different people voted on 92 different songs. That's more than 9 people and 61 songs, so... the upwards trend is real!  \o/
•  Blackpink came, saw and conquered. They ranked #1, #2, #4 and #13 (tied) with their entire discography so far.
•  Oh My Girl was the only other group to get more than one song to the top 10 (top 19, as well). They might be a rankings staple for years to come.
•  Whistle appeared on most lists with 7 rankings, Playing With Fire second with 6 rankings.
•  Thanks to everyone for voting! (Fen also, even if your list wasn't quite big enough to count for the totals :p)

Let's meta it up

•  Again, two group tables this time. On the left I've counted every vote, and on the right, only the top vote for that group in each voter's list. Leftmost list can illustrate a wider range of strong material, and the rightmost focuses on the single strongest effort put out by the group. Rightmost list can also weed out group bias in some cases.
•  Blackpink dominates both tables, which illustrates the strength of their material in the voters' minds. Pretty good with just four tracks released so far.
•  IOI had most songs on the list with seven, but almost all of the votes were from nachdenki's list. :p
