♛ T-ara Discography Rate ♛ HAPPY DECADE ANNIVERSARY!

Discussion in 'K-pop' started by GeiPanda, May 24, 2019.

  1. [​IMG]

    On July 29th 2009, now-legendary Korean girl group T-ara debuted on Mnet's M Countdown with their song Lies. Comprised of members Boram, Qri, Soyeon, Eunjung, Hyomin, Jiyeon (and briefly Hwayoung and Areum), they worked primarily with producer Shinsadong Tiger to create a string of catchy bops. T-ara became known as the "chameleon-dols", due to their ability to adapt to a range of visual concepts. Their fandom name is QUEEN, and their official color is Gold/Pearl Ivory.

    These ladies deserve so much more recognition for all the hard work they've put in over the past decade. With the 10th Year Anniversary of their debut fast approaching, it seems an appropriate time to give T-ara their due justice and rate their almost flawless discography. T-ARA TIME TO LOVE.

  4. ♛ RULES ♛

    1) Rate the above 73 songs a score between 0 and 10, with one favorite song getting an 11. You can use decimal points, but keep them at quarter intervals (i.e: .25, .5, .75) please.

    2) I highly recommend you send commentary, even if you can't do it for every song. I'm curious to know all of your opinions. The shadier + messier the better, kii.

    3) No trolling, misogynist, racist, homophobic or blatantly offensive comments.

    4) I won't start tagging until closer to the deadline, but please (be unlike me when I participate in rates ddd) and give me a heads-up if you're planning to send your scores at the last minute - just so I know not to bother you.

    5) I made my own judgement as to what songs should have been included. For example, I felt that the ballad versions of Lies, Cry Cry and Do You Know Me? were different enough from their original tracks to be warranted inclusion. If you feel like I'm missing anything from their Korean discography, please speak up.

    6) PM me and @Empty Shoebox your final scores along with any commentary. Also, feel free to send any questions / comments / suggestions you might have.

    DEADLINE is Monday 22nd July, 2019.
    11.59pm EST/8:59pm PST

    (23rd July, 2019 4:59am GMT)

  5. BONUS ROUND

    Some of you Queens may have noticed that we are only rating their Korean discography. I made that decision because there are so many songs to score already, even excluding their Japanese work.

    However, I have compiled a Youtube playlist of their Japanese releases. This is an entirely optional round - but please PM me a separate rate of these songs if you are interested! I will reveal these results a day or so before the main scores, as a sort of bonus pre-messery treat. Same rules as main rate applies.

    Even if you don't want to score them, I advise you to check the playlist out - there are some hidden bops.

    (NOTE: their first Japanese album Jewelry Box (2012) is made up entirely of Japanese versions of their previous releases, hence its exclusion)

  10. Even though I haven't really kept up with their releases post 2013, I still consider these girls in my top 10 kpop acts. I will definitely try this!

  11. [insert something witty about QUEEN'S and getting this bread here]
    I listened to my own playlist of all my top T-ara tracks the other night to prepare for this rate and try to narrow down some 11 contenders so I am READY. Not that it won't still take me most of the voting period to actually finish rating though.

    Also I looove some of their Japanese tracks so I'm happy about the bonus rate!

    Also also, although I'm a longtime fan of their music, I don't know a lot about the girls themselves and the group's history (beyond the scandal, that is) so I'm interested to learn about them a bit.

  12. Can we at least make Bunny Style mandatory?! Excluding it to a bonus only is actually homophobic.

    Other than that, I can’t wait to start rating my queens discography!!

  13. Can we ignore the Snake and just pretend she didn't exist? The only thing she did was ruining everything, acting like a victim and the whole nipple thing lmao
    I liked Diadem more than Queens :P

  14. I’ve been playing What’s My Name a lot lately because bop but Eunjung’s poorly fitting pant suits in the live performances make me irrationally angry.

  15. How am I supposed to pick one 11 when they have multiple 11-worthy songs?

  16. My 11 will be the song that got me into them (and the song that I submitted for the Ultimate Pop Stars rate), but it could easily have gone to five others.

  17. I bop to pretty much all of their post-Roly Poly singles (not you Tiamo) and I love their first album so I should be doing this (unless the songs I haven't heard hold me back from doing it).


    Apple Is A So Crazy Number 9 for the win.

  18. Yasss, prepare yourself for thesis-like history lessons of our Queens - especially trivial facts about Qri.

    I'm sorry bb - I would love to include it in the main rate, but I had to make a compromise with the Japanese tracks (it pains me too, cos it means excluding my favorite basic bop Musica Musica!). I don't want voters to be worn out by 6+ hours of music. ALSO, let's be glad that I didn't throw in all those remixes that served as album tracks, otherwise we'd be looking at rating 100+ songs ddd.

    Anyway, I'll be sure to give Bunny Style it's deserved spotlight once the results come in.

  19. WHAT a tune. That and Lucky Wannabeee! are some of my favorite T-ara tracks overall, they're so good.

    In other news, I swear if any of you tank their ballads JUST because they're ballads I will end you. T-ara's slower, dramatic tracks are incredible.
