[TOP 100] My Favourite Up-Front Songs (2017)

Announcement: I am terribly sorry, but this post is very overdue. Last year, I had to take an impromptu hiatus due to some personal issues. However, I am back! I wrote a lot of content during that time, so please expect a lot more posts in the future!

Every year, I rank my favourite Korean, Chinese, Japanese and Hello! Project songs. Last year, I decided to do something a bit different. Usually, for my Hello! Project list, I would on include songs from main Hello! Project groups and subunits. This time, my “Top 100” list includes songs from not only the main groups and subunits but also from other Up-Front artists such as Kikkawa Yuu and Eric Fukusaki. My list has completely changed! There are many new songs and reappearances of some old songs.

Last year’s list of my “Top 100 Up-Front Agency Songs” is shown below. Please check out the video as well! 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 on last year’s list. There are a few songs that were present in 2015’s list but not in last year’s (2016) list.

What are you favourite Hello! Project and Up-Front songs! Do not be afraid to let me know in the comments below!
