[TOP 100] My Favourite Japanese Songs (September 2017)

Earlier this year, I released my list of TOP 100 Korean and Chinese songs. Now, I am posting my updated list of my most favourite Japanese songs.As I mentioned in my post for my TOP 100 Korean songs, my list changes every year as I get tired of older songs and fall in love with newer songs. While this year’s Japanese list features many older songs, there are a few new songs in the mix as well. Many songs dropped in ranking, while others increased. As usual, it is a very dynamic list.

For the past two years, I have included artistes from the Up-Front Group (the agency that houses Hello Project and many other idols). However, this year I decided to create a new list that combines Hello Project and other Up-Front idols and groups. This list will be released later this year. Therefore, you would not see artistes like Lovendor or Kikkawa Yuu on this list. This changed up my list quite a lot since these were two artists that were prominent on last year’s list.

This year’s list of my TOP 100 Japanese songs is shown below. Please also check out the video compilation I made as well. It is not perfect since I have little skill in video editing but I tried my best! The numbers and arrows in the video indicate by how much the songs went up or down from last year’s list. “New” indicates that the song was not present in last year’s list. There are a few songs that were present in 2015’s list but not in last year’s (2016) list.
