Best Kpop Songs of 2015 (Results are IN!)
« on: December 20, 2015, 11:25:50 AM »
It's that time again, and this time it's actually been 2 whole years... Last year nobody bothered making a thread, possibly due to lack of interest and an overall uninspiring year of kpop.

However, 2015 has been quite excellent in k-release quality, so I figured, time to bring this back.

--

You can vote for any Korean releases from 2015 - that means, album tracks, digital releases are all acceptable! However, Japanese releases are not!

Voting is simple: List your top 10 tracks of the year. The #1 gets 10 points, #2 gets 9, #3 gets 8 points, and so on.

This poll will be open for a month, until January 20th until we have enough votes here. So get your lists in, and feel free to tweak them until the deadline.

--

Our tracking this year hasn't been stellar, but here's a good list of 2015 releases from wikipedia.

--

Previous polls and winners:

2014 - Not held
2013 - Crayon Pop - Bar Bar Bar
2012 - T-ara - Lovey Dovey
2011 - Kara - Step
2010 - Girls' Generation - Hoot

Hmm guess I'll start it off

1. Oh My Girl - Closer
2. IU - Zeze
3. Fiestar - You're Pitiful (짠해)
4. Playback - Playback
5. Stellar - Vibrato
6. Mamamoo - Um Oh Ah Yeah
7. Wonder Girls - Rewind
8. The Ark - The Light
9. So Yumi - Shake Me Up
10. Hello Venus - Show Window

This year was quite good in KPOP. Lotta good title and non-title tracks, it was actually difficult to choose a top 10. Not even sure if I'm happy with my list >_<. And..I may have been a little biased for Oh My Girl as my top pick XD

I agree with storyboard that we got a lot of good songs last year, especially non-title tracks. Took me a while to decide on my top 10. Another biased top pick incoming . 

1.Lovelyz-For you(그대에게)(Hi~ and hug me were strong contenders but recency bias won out)
2.Rainbow-Pierrot
3.Taeyeon-Stress
4.IU-The shower(푸르던)
5.4minute- Cut it out(1절만 하시죠)
6.Park Gyuri and From the airport-The Little Prince(어린왕자)
7.9muses-Hurt Locker(다쳐)
8.OMG-Closer
9.Red Velvet-Dumb Dumb
10.Lizzy-Not an easy Girl(쉬운 여자 아니에요)(Sorry Goodbye PMS, you are still awesome)

Other songs I was considering for my top 10:
Apink-Remember,Big Bang-Sober,Boa-Shattered,Wonder Girls-One black night,Gfriend-Under the sky.A.kor-Always,Shannon-Why Why,Infinite-Bad,Dynamic Duo-J.O.T.S

We are in agreement, 2015 was a great turnaround from 2014. Yet my list contains only 6 acts  :lol:

1. IU - Zeze
Hot damn. A fucking banger. First time I heard it I had the most positive disgusted/gas face one could have. I might have even slapped my computer, it was so good.

2. f(x) - 4 Walls
I don't wanna say Sulli leaving the group unleashed f(x), but a room only has 4 walls.

3. IU - Twenty-Three
Not only is the song and video just fun, but if you actually read the translated lyrics (or you read and understand Korean), IU is actually saying something. IU is great.

4. BoA - Shattered
Smooth as fuck house. I'm so glad BoA is still around making some good music.

5. Red Velvet - Automatic
This song made me a believer in Red Velvet. Dumb Dumb and Ice Cream Cake are solid, but the R&B route is the route I hope the group does more often. The most natural I ever heard them.

6. Wonder Girls - Rewind
7. Wonder Girls - I Feel You
Fuck yes, Wonder Girls is back and sounding completely different from their old selves and anything else out in Kpop. I still miss Sohee.

8. f(x) - X
9. f(x) - Diamond
f(x) still has the highest success ratio of experimental sounds = quality music.

10. Miss A - Only You
I had no idea when I first heard this song that Miss A would make my top 10. It took almost a year for me to come around, but I did.

I vote for TOZ as the most gangsta~  :otomerika:

Even after all this time and low turnout, I'll be posting my own list and counting the votes this weekend.

So if you still want to participate, you can still post your 2015 list, do hurry up though. :jphip:

Whenever I think of 2015 in kpop, I think of the Wonder Girls. I think of Rewind. I'm faced with the same kind of dilemma as with D-Unit's debut album, I find it difficult to unpack the brilliant full-length into separate songs. I'll try though, and I'll also try not to populate my top 10 with just WG tracks. I'm told there was other music too! But yeah, it's tough... here goes:

TOP 10

01. Wonder Girls - Loved
02. IU - Zeze
03. Wonder Girls - Faded Love
04. Lim Kim - Awoo
05. Red Velvet - Automatic
06. Wonder Girls - I Feel You
07. IU - Twenty-Three
08. BoA - Shattered
09. Oh My Girl - Closer
10. Red Velvet - Dumb Dumb


Other considerations:

Wonder Girls - Everything else
f(x) - 4 Walls and many others (I'm surprised none made the list...)
Red Velvet - Don`t U Wait No More, Ice Cream Cake, few others
Lim Kim - Love Game
The Ark - The Light (RIP)
And many more lost in the winds of time.


Alternative top 12:

1. Wonder Girls - Baby Don't Play
1. Wonder Girls - Candle (feat. Paloalto)
1. Wonder Girls - I Feel You
1. Wonder Girls - Rewind
1. Wonder Girls - Loved
1. Wonder Girls - John Doe
1. Wonder Girls - One Black Night
1. Wonder Girls - Back
1. Wonder Girls - OPPA (오빠)
1. Wonder Girls - 사랑이 떠나려 할 때
1. Wonder Girls - 없어 (GONE)
1. Wonder Girls - 이 순간


--

Waiting for a few more latecomers that I know are working on a list still.

OK. I had to stop thinking and just put this out there. I'll regret it in 2017 maybe:

  • Red Velvet - Automatic
  • ZICO, Hyolyn, Paloalto - Dark Panda
  • Oh My Girl - Closer
  • San E - #LUVUHATER
  • f(x) - Papi
  • 4 minute - Crazy
  • Lim Kim - Love Game
  • Wonder Girls - Candle
  • Jimin - Puss
  • Hyuna - Ice Ice

I wanted to put like 3 more f(x) and Red Velvet songs a piece but I had to calm myself down...and this order might as well be random beyond like...top 4...lmao...

For how long it took me to compile this shitty top 10 I would've hoped it'd be better than shitty. However it isn't. That being said hereeeeeeeeeee we go:

1. Red Velvet - Automatic. First place just comes automatic. The placement of 2-10 are ultimately irrelevant for me. That being said...
2. Wonder Girls - I Feel You
3. Wonder Girls - Baby Don't Play
4. Wonder Girls - Rewind
5. Wonder Girls - Candle
6. Gfriend - Me Gustas Tu
7. Gfriend - Glass Bead
8. Lovelyz - Ah-Choo
9. SNSD - Catch Me If You Can
10. T-ara - So Crazy

sig not by Stryfe... but I don't have the heart to remove the shout-out

The votes have been tallied, and results are below. I've also made a Youtube playlist of all songs that got at least 5 points in the vote, so if I you want to get your results that way:

YouTube Playlist for JPHiP's Best Kpop Song of 2015 - TOP 42

The playlist starts from the tied 37th position songs and finishes with number 1. Everyone just looking for the results can move onwards to the next post.

SPOILERS BELOW






















































Closer to you



•  The winner of the vote with 33 points and just a single point's lead is Oh My Girl with their ethereal Closer.





•  Right behind with 32 points is Red Velvet with the pinnacle of their smooth and velvet-y side, Automatic.





•  Third place with 28 points goes to IU with the quirky and controversial Zezé.



Random thoughts

•  Thanks and apologies to all the voters. The low turnout almost doomed this thread to be forever forgotten but hey, better late than never, right?
•  9 different people voted on 61 different songs. In contrast, previous time 17 people voted on 94 different songs. Not a great trend, but the only way is up!

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.
•  Wonder Girls dominate the left table, which can illustrate how well voters received their album, Rewind. On the right table, they fare slightly worse, which can illustrate the difficulty of picking the absolute best song on said album.
•  Wonder Girls also had the most songs appear in the vote with six: I Feel You (#4), Rewind (#7), Loved (#12), Candle (#16), Baby Don't Play (#23) and Faded Love (#23)
•  f(x) placed surprisingly low, which could be explained by the low voter turnout. They've always enjoyed a high popularity among the more casual listeners.
