    hello and welcome to the second annual



    Things you might ask me-
    what is a PopJustice chart?
    what is a "somg"?
    why are you so obsessed with the letter n?
    why all the horrific typography?
    is that Rita Ora dressed as a muppet?

    To which I will reply-
    only the worthy know.

    And by worthy I mean-
    people who answered our tags
    people who crunched their playcounts
    people who promo-ed new music
    people who didn't swerve voting
    something that takes LITERALLY TEN MINUTES TOPS

    If you did literally none of those things-
    your redemption starts now

    Each month, from September 2016 until December 2017, the beautiful people of PopJustice voted for their ten favourite songs. A lovely rotation of hosts created spreadsheets, crunched the numbers, messed up results, and entertained the masses while presenting the monthly PopJustice Chart. A chart we could call our own, one far away from the ravages of the tasteless "General Public." Only the elite have made it here, the top five songs from every month compiled into one beautiful playlist (plus one song that only made the yearly top 10).

    This year we're doing things differently. After hosting a big versus rate last summer I really don't have the time for people shitting on genres or artists they hate yet again. So instead participants will vote only for their favourite songs, leaving all of that specific negativity behind. This year, the worst you can do to a song is not vote for it. There are seventy two songs, so I am giving each voter THREE Eurovision style ballots to submit (or thirty songs). Why thirty? There were concerns that people wouldn't listen to all the songs, so this should hopefully encourage full listening schedules. I'm not going to be giving quizzes to determine if you actually listened to everything, but it is strongly recommended. And yes, you must use all thirty of your votes or your ballot will be disqualified. THESE RULES ARE NOT UP FOR DEBATE. I will not entertain any posts requesting a full rate, so don't waste your time typing up a dissertation. I'll just head off to do some yoga instead.

    Here is an example of what your ballot should look like-

    12 - 3 songs
    10 - 3 songs
    8 - 3 songs
    7 - 3 songs
    6 - 3 songs
    5 - 3 songs
    4 - 3 songs
    3 - 3 songs
    2 - 3 songs
    1 - 3 songs

  3. Reserved for more song spotlights.
  4. Reserved for more song spotlights.
  5. Looking through the other personal charts threads seemed scary.
    But now that I am familiar with the PJSC style of voting this is a more approachable way to do it.

    It should be fun.
  6. Yasssssss.
    evilsin, GimmeWork, Serg. and 7 others like this.
  7. I usually hate lowercased lists, but in this case, it's like badass.
  8. I’ll be hunting people down starting tomorow. I also hope to post more about the individual songs as the week goes on, give them a spotlight etc.

    If someone wanted to compile a Spotify playlist I wouldn’t complain though.

  10. And @Sanctuary is our first voter. Guess I gotta make a spreadsheet now.

  11. This voting system should be... interesting. Having your fave potentially get like ten times less points than the winner seems worse than having it lose by 2 or 3 points out of 10.

    (Not asking for it to be changed, just making an observation.)
  12. It’s not really about that. I know from personal experience and have been told by others how discouraging it is to see people just hand out low scores to certain genres that don’t have a lot of support on PJ. Then it becomes a big debate and mess.

    I’d rather just have people vote for their faves and not have to worry about someone giving out all zeros to k-pop or songs with raps in them or anything too weird/indie or too teen pop, etc.

    And to be clear, I wasn’t asking for observations either.
  13. @Alouder98 did make this Spotify playlist a while ago but I haven’t checked if it’s up to date.
  14. Hmm... OK then.
  15. It is. The only song the playlist misses is Likey by TWICE which is not available on Spotify.
    evilsin, Slice of Life, Serg. and 5 others like this.
  16. Thank you!
