Ticket is such a weird song, because I think I dislike it but then it comes on shuffle and I’m bopping. And yeah I’ve definitely tried to do that helicopter move before and wondered if I’m just not... made properly or something?
Honestly... This is one of the best top 10 I’ve seen in any rate.
Rainbow's A you can do this unnie, I'm rooting
Another HUGE thank-you to @junglefish - not only for whipping together more beautiful graphics, but also pretending he hasn't known the top 10 for the past fortnight:
This top 10 is a work of art. 11x1, 10x8, 8,5x1? Not everyone has that!
Obviously I'm rooting for my 11, but this is a great Top10 bar maybe 2-3 songs that I would swap.
I'm gonna live my truth and say that Lupin had the obligation to be in that top 10 instead of Mach
"Mach" is immaculate though.
Some of you are about to be real mad at me but Lupin should be in the top 10 instead of Gun.
Gun is my lowest 9Muses score so no complaints here.
And Lupin isn't?
This is a travesty!
I absolutely hated Ticket on first listen. It’s a bit relentless. It’s all feels a bit loud and messy but that chorus really does kick you up the backside and get you moving.
I mean my ideal top 10 died all the way back at #69, so I’ve had longer than y’all to come to terms with what we got. So from my perspective, it’s perfect!
Now nobody mind the 7 I gave one of them nn, I said perfect!!!
Farewell to Lovelyz
Oof I’ve gotten lazy with these, but better late than never, right? Honestly though I’m just gonna dump a handful of non-Sweetune tracks and move on, please feel free to add any of your own faves in the thread x
And currently gunning for KSOTY top 3:

Lovelyz – Group Average: 7.791
I'm not the most knowledgeable on Lovelyz but I'll give it a shot.
And of course, solo efforts:
Honestly this is my all time favorite Lovelyz song:
And then we have its younger but somewhat more mature sister:
They're just so... pretty. There's something so calming about those two songs, it makes me feel like I'm underwater. But not like, drowning. I don't know how to explain it nn
and a stunner
Ahh thank you all for the Lovelyz recs! I meant to post sooner, but spent my weekend in a haunted hotel, which ate up most of my attention. Sadly, I’m not sure there will be a ton to add for this next group…
Farewell to SNUPER
So… nn. I love Snuper, but things have fallen off hard for me in the past few years, and given that Sebin is going to be taking part in this new OMEGA X project, things aren’t looking so good for the group. It’s kinda devastating teebs: between 2016-2017, their discography was on a whole other level from their contemporaries, but the stars just never seemed to align for them.
On the topic of stars, ‘Like Star’ is actually one final Sweetune track, released as a Japanese B-side in late 2017. It’s hardly an essential part of their catalogue, but a cute victory lap for the partnership:
And… actually I’m gonna leave it there ddd. I just relistened to their other recent stuff, and while none of it is actively bad, it just feels so feeble compared to their peak. I’m sure some of you still enjoy their later work, so I’ll leave it to y’all to share anything worth sharing. As for me, I’ll be pretending ‘The Star of Stars’ was their swan song.
