Personally I think it's a nice collection of bops and a lot of my fav songs have been featured on the list, however most of the top 10 rankings seem kinda out of place, I'd have replaced them with some from 11-20.

Oh Kick It!
:pandahappy:
Yess Kick It and Wannabe had arguably the 2 most iconic choreos this year :sanapray:

as much as i wish i could forget everything that happened at that time, i remember that psycho was released in december 2019 so what is it doing on a 2020 list :jisoosmh:
Alas that’s the fate of these late December songs lol, I think it was released just a week before the year end or something so they probably considered it for this year lmao. Or they wanted to have Psycho at #1 so just did it :haylul:

OFC love to see RV, Apink and gfriend represented.

But like the thing yesterday I have no idea if they are more than some folks and a opinion.

I personally cant really make a representative list since i am very narrow in what i spend my time on.

But ill say
psycho
naughty
Drumdumdrum
mago
tag me
Happy
and izone titles and b sides
Catalogue bias songs.
along with hkt and akb performances took the vast majority of my music time.

maybe an nct dance practice or 2 cuz they are just so good.

2 days before Christmas. Plan was probably to own as much of Jan as they could but stuff happens.
no promos at all aside from that fan meet.
Meteor blew up and any song showed up :

Yeah the timing kinda fell off, and with Wendy's accident just around Christmas time, it just never felt the same. Wish we could have gotten more performances, this is def their biggest hit stats wise since Red Flavor.

Apart from Psycho being on this list being nonsensical other than people rushing to get top lists of the year out before the year is even done :pandatea: I saw Stray Kids as second and immediately lost interest in the rest of the list since that's just a lie.

You do not think Dec/Late Dec songs should be the following year so that reception can be accurately judged?

Most the award shows run Dec to Nov some Nov to Oct. Everyone has their nominees out now for 2020 except maybe KDA do not remember seeing them.
That way the list at least is valuable as a frame of reference to whom folks will see or have seen win?

Not that this particular list is gospel i have no idea who they are btw.

Well in terms of award shows whereever you put the cut off point you are going to affect the month you cut it off at so for November then HIP as an example is screwed because of when it was released while Psycho gets a full year run based on it being released in December.

As the year goes though i'd argue that November would be the most optimal time to start counting from if anything given that December comebacks are usually avoided due to the barrage of Christmas songs taking over the charts and everyone tries to comeback in November instead.

The only one it really matters for overall is Gaon as they need 30 days to reference a songs success which makes me question why they moved their awards forward and now have to start at December but I can only imagine it was to be closer to GDA and SMA.

For personals lists though they don't have this problem and can make a list for whenever they feel like and I end up seeing multiple people making their lists mid way into December even if there are still other comebacks to go just because they aren't particularly interested in the comebacks which is ultimately their decision but it's always been puzzling to me.
