Welcome to the end of the 2014 charts. This chart has every single song that was released from the 1st of January 2014 to the 1st of December. I left the nitty gritty stuff out (aka. the numbers I used for the ranking) and made sure that everything was fair. So that means for songs that were released towards the end of the year would have received some extra increment to make sure that they were levelled out with the songs released in January. Other numbers used included whether songs were on the YouTube Playlist of The Month and each song was re-reviewed in categories of “song, music video and dance”. Below are just some interesting facts that you may enjoy in regards to this chart.
The very first song released to be included on the charts are Rain’s 30 Sexy and La Song. The last song released before the cut off date was Infinite F’s Heartbeat.
T-Ara’s Sugar Free (2) was the only song throughout the whole chart to score the maximum of 40 for the song re-review.
VIXX is the first boy group to appear in the charts at 14th place with Eternity.
As touched on above, this year the charts are dominated by the girl groups, with 13 boy groups versus 37 girl groups (repeated groups not excluded).
Heavily promoted songs tend to rank higher than songs that were released as a single and not promoted.
The following artists achieved the next few positions after 50th place: SPEED, Crayon Pop, Z:EA, Zhou Mi (Super Junior), BTOB, Infinite, UKISS, AOA and Gain (Brown Eyed Girls)

THAT’S IT!!! 2014 IS OVER AND 2015 IS APPROACHING. WISHING YOU ALL (IN YOUR RESPECTIVE TIME ZONES) A HAPPY NEW YEAR. I only have 6 hours to go and I am excited. Party hard (but not too hard) and I will see you next year!! aka. in the next few days ^^
Wheesung was released from his mandatory military service late last year and it has been a while since we have seen on the stage. He has been back being a very busy producer, but finally we get to hear him on stage once again. He made his comeback last month with Night and Day that showcases his talent and vocals.
This song is so freaking good. I love a good old ballad, but to me, this is mashed up somewhat with a rnb feel, making it sound so cool. There is not one thing I would change in this song. His vocals are superb. The song was so lovely and the lyrics were really good as well. The lyrics itself were talking about how a guy is willing to show his love, by loving a girl “night and day” or in other words 24 Hours. His raspy voice in this song gives it that extra roughness making it sound so good. The song built up to the chorus and when it finally reached its peak, it gave a really good punch to the face. His high notes at the end were also really good, further showcasing the amazing skills he has. Overall it was an amazing song that I keep coming back to.
The music video features C.A.P from Teen Top and Yura from Girl’s Day who plays old friends who love each other. We than get a flashback to the past where Yura was about to leave C.A.P, as if they were going to break up. She gets into a car with her suitcase and then the driver drives off. C.A.P relazies that the can’t live without her so he runs after the car, to which Yura notices and manages to stop the car and run back into him. But in reality, she does not notice him and actually drives off. Hence the music video goes back to the first scene and it seems like they recently met each other again. C.A.P notices a ring on Yura’s finger and as she leaves, realizes that it is probably not too late to express his feelings since both were so sad of breakup with each other. Pretty solid plot, I just hope I read into it right. Wheesung also shows up in the video for his solo singing parts, which is pretty cool as well. Though not sure about the “Greece pillar” backdrops though.
Though this song does not rely heavily on dance, I still think the dancing is pretty good.
10/10. Have little to no complaints about this comeback and this probably have to be one of the best comebacks of the year.
Hello once again. I apologise for my absence. I was meant to write and publish this review on the Monday, but I guess homework got in the way once again. But anyway, I am back and probably will be writing a whole heap of reviews to be able to schedule them for the next few weeks. Today, I will be reviewing a new rookie group. Wow. Like already 32569050 rookie groups and here I am trying my best to review them. On top of that, Mamamoo, a girl group consisting of members Solar, MoonByul, WhaSa and WheeIn, recruited the help of hit soloists K.Will and Wheesung to be in this song. For those who don’t know, this group debuted in January with the song Don’t Be Happy, featuring Bumkey. I guess this is their comeback, but then again, they really did not promote their other song as well. But not only that, but VIXX’s Hongbin and N participated in the music video of this song as well. But enough background info, on with the review.
This song is freaking amazing. Honestly, I love it and it has to be the new song I am currently digging. That retro and jazzy vibe this song has mixed up with the electro instrumental sound like the most sexiest couple in the world got together and had babies, who were equally as sexy. The rapping in this song is prefect. I cannot ask for more. The vocals are equally amazing. Though I think the girls should have contributed a little more vocal work to the song, putting K.Will and Wheesung into the song makes it quite popular. Now, I know this band has four members. But from start to end, I feel like I only heard one person. I don’t know if I like that or not, but it seems to be pretty original. The song is about comparing love to sweets and candies. Original right? Also, the whole sound of the song overall is much different to any song out there at the moment and probably any song in the future to come. They pulled this song off really well.
The music video is also quite good. I love the filtering of the colours in the video. I don’t know why, but I find this music video really pleasant to watch. There is not much going on and it is overly cluttered. I would say there is a plot, but for some reason this video is not large on the plot. It is more focus on showing off the members in a fashion show kind of sense which I really like. Those colourful scenes look quite retro and really brings back the good retro feel to the song and video. The music video is quite low budget, but I like how they covered it up with the editing and the lighting in the video. I guess the plot of the video is basically some people trying to find the “love pill” of love. Now that sounds absolutely disgusting and gross, but hey, it fits the title of the song. Also, bringing VIXX’s N and Hongbin into the music video make the whole thing so much bigger.
Please don’t tell me I am the only one who loves this song. 10/10. No ifs and no buts. Last week I asked which Gain song you guys preferred, and it seemed like FxxK U was enjoyed the most. Truth Or Dare came in second. Both songs came in third place. YAY! At least someone out there enjoyed the mini album as well. But also enjoy this song as well.
This song is absolutely awesome. Wheesung’s voice + RnB song = a song everyone must hear. It is very dominating especially Wheesung’s voice. It is very relaxing in my point of view as well but also a very tragic song.
Now the plot of the music video is not that clear. A guy loves this girl and the girl abandons him. He soon realizes that there are people after him and would attack his ex. He goes and save her and while they try to escape they are attacked. The girl does not want to leave with the guy so she stays back, telling the guy to go on. Maybe she is going to hold the attackers up, no one knows. No one knows her fate, but I think possibly dead with all the gunshots.However many unexplained sections of the story I don’t much understand.Whose the guy? Why did the girl stay back? Why when he looks into a mirrior he is wearing a suit? Is he the bad or a good guy?
Now I did say this before. The voice is very dominating and actually emits emotion through the tone and pitch of his voice. The girl at the start who raps, is his actual trainee Ailee. She is better than most rappers who I listen to (But not as good as Eminem) and her voice is really fitted into RnB songs. I would like to see more of her. Here is her cover of Halo by Beyonce –> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QfeQXZRhvRc&feature=related .
Okay, to rate this song –> I’d be kidding myself if I would not given this song a 10/10. So I am going to give it a 10/10.
