May 2023 Charts - Extra Gay Edition - Songs and Albums Revealed!

Welcome to the May 2023 Monthly Charts!

  1. Send a chart of your 10 favorite songs and 5 to 10 favorite albums (using the format below) in a PM to @boom bazooka joe
  2. You can choose to send only songs or albums if you wish.​
  3. The songs can be singles, album tracks, demos, or anything you want.​
  4. The albums can be full length, EP, compilations, and even unreleased albums.​
  5. You cannot submit a ballot entirely full of K-pop. There is an equally fabulous K Chart run by @Slice of Life
  6. You must vote for at least one non K-pop song (a K-pop song for the Japanese/Chinese/etc market is treated the same as a release for Korean audiences). I would encourage you to vote for at least one non K-pop album, but it is not required.​
  7. The songs and albums can be released whenever, but releases within the past 6 months or so have the best chance to make the charts.​
  8. The charts should be what you've been listening to in the past month.​
  9. Your favorite song/album gets 10 points, scaling all the way down to 1 point.
    The total points earned builds the chart.​
  10. An album or song must have a minimum of two voters to chart.​
  11. Ties are broken by number of voters, then by highest vote, by quality of vote, then lowest score. If we still can't break parity the entries remain tied.​
  12. The top five songs each month make the PJ Chart Rate, a modified Eurovision Style contest that runs once a year.​

Please use the following template when voting.

10 points:
9 points:
8 points:
7 points:
6 points:
5 points:
4 points:
3 points:
2 points:
1 point:

If you are only voting for five albums, stop at 6 points.

When submitting a specific entry PLEASE use the following formats

Song (Feature Artist) - Main Artist
Album - Artist

If a song has two artists, but neither is featured, please submit accordingly

Song - Main Artist 1 & Main Artist 2

**New Rule - I will enforce this rule and ask you to reform your ballot if you send me one in a different format.

Voting Deadline Sunday June 4th 11:59 PM PST
watch2gether TBC @soratami how about Saturday, June 3rd?)

Btw the way, I humored for exactly 30 seconds what I promised/threatened and make this the Straight Male Edition of the charts, but I truly don't think I have it in my willpower to keep that joke up for an entire month. I'm simply too gay for that. But thank you @berserkboi for keeping that running gag going (AND hosting last month!)

Furthermore, voting has continued to dip in recent months. I know we've been promised/threatened that registrations will open up soon, and hopefully that will get some new blood in here, but if it seems like I'm extra hound-y this month, just know it's because we are trying to keep our reputation in tact and some of y'all are letting us flop! (Said with love.) So if I become annoying, just tell me NO! <3

And you can post now!
Retro Winning Queen Emmanuelle (who recently passed away) has had her first album reissued in her memory this month, with this edition including her singles from later releases too (including iconic Poupée De Bois). Let’s celebrate all her bops this month!!

Song wise - we can support her biggest hit Premier Baiser or her Janet-esque Tu Seras A Mes Pieds! Let me know, mes amis <33
