    We start our main song chart with the most gorgeous little song in recent memory, Red Velvet's Hello, Sunset. Ugh, the way I am obsessed with this song these days far more than any other Queendom track (including the title track ffffff)... it's insane. I just love the imagery and the simplicity of this song. It makes me long for lazy late afternoon swimming in the beach while waiting for the, yes, sunset. TL;DR, Hello, Sunset is a stunner.

    Now why did the NCTzens not vote for this iconique bawperoo from Doyoung and Haechan??? Now I'm worried for NCT 127's upcoming comeback..... Anyway, yes, let's talk about Maniac. It's from this project of producer Ryan Jhun called Maxis. LOONA also has a song for this project. But Maniac... yes, what a bop! The vocals are supreme as expected from two of NCT's main vocalists. More of this please!

    Also sending an album track in the main song chart is Weeekly with La Luna. This is one of my faves from the album. It's a fun new sound for the Weeekly girls, proving they are versatile icons! I'm not sure if the song will be an engaging listen for more than a month though... but let's see. I'm definitely liking listening to it so far.

    Now, why did I expect this to do A LOT better??? I thought this was destined for a top 15 finish at the very least. Poor @eatyourself unnie! I must admit I didn't really dig Door on my first few listens. I don't know; it just lacked impact, I guess. But I have seen the light and I'm enjoying the track a lot more now. That chorus!!!!!!! Eunbi did that!

    Another album track in the basket! This time, it's Golden Child's excellent Spell. I don't remember if there was an active campaign for this song but still, congrats to our KPJ Goldenness! Y'all did that! Some of this song's lyrics... are very interesting. "Use me, use me, use me"????????? I mean, if you insist... kekeke. But yes, the song is a whole bop so get into it!

    A late summer bop! Astro come back on our song chart with their latest single, After Midnight. This is a lot less serious than their previous single, One, so it's really perfect for the summer weather! Fantagio Entertainment seem to have quite a factory of great summer bops (see also: Weki Meki's Tiki-Taka #promo kekeke). I'm happy After Midnight proved to be a mid-sized hit for Astro. I really didn't think they'd ever earn a top 10 Gaon hit ever fffffff. Talent always wins again!

    K-indie legend Yeseo also makes her return on our song chart with her latest single, Free Up. I actually think this might be Yeseo's most accessible single yet. It's... a fucking bop??? And it sounds perfect for the summer too. The whole Try Free! mini album is excellent so y'all better check it out as well! Support underrated talent juseyo!

    Now, I'm not gonna lie. Weeekly's excellent new single, Holiday Party, not even making the top 20 is highkey so disappointing. How are y'all not obsessed with this song? It's so, so catchy and so, so good! I guess I should also blame myself because I only gave it a single point ffffff. I'm so sorry, kweens! But seriously, please give Holiday Party another chance, unnies! It's amazing!

    Finishing just outside the top 20 is Stray Kids' new single, Thunderous. Hmmmm, I'm sorry to my @eccentricsimply unnie but I'm not exactly digging this. I like the verses enough but that chorus... is severely underwritten. Oh well, I'm sure they'll release a repackage with a better single the same way they did with Back Door! Can't wait!

    And just missing the top 20 by a single point is CL's first pre-release (?) single, Spicy. It's our first taste of her first full album, Alpha, which is scheduled to be released in October. I'm... not really a fan of this ffffff. I feel like a bad Blackjack but I have to live my truth! I don't know; I thought CL has outgrown this sound already. After the excellent In The Name Of Love mixtape, I really had high expectations for her next moves. Oh well, I'm sure there are much, MUCH better songs on Alpha. Lemme remain positive. This is me being positive.

  14. Golden Child getting an album track to chart hopefully means that the ONF and CIX album tracks I voted for could chart too…

    I didn’t vote for Maniac because it was completely overshadowed by Low Low. Sorry, Haechan & Doyoung, but you get enough praise. YangYang needs the spotlight more.
     
  18. Well I do say it's a bit shite, and because I'm campaigning for Fanfare I thought nobody would vote for it so I save my points for artists....


    ........that at this point probably won't chart ffffffffff (Hi-L and Posh Girls)

    [​IMG]
     
  19. Yeah, Ra Pam Pam is lowkey bottom 3 Golcha and possibly bottom 1 fffff, sorry Slicé

    BUT Fanfare is absolutely one of their finest, so we pretend that’s the title this era!!!
