[So I fucked around and...] remade the Hit Index.

  • what is this based off?

    is it off melon charts? cause if so, how can you compare songs pre-melon reform to post-melon reform (mid-2020 onwards) when the new melon reform has made it harder to chart initially, but easier to maintain longevity and a higher ranking if your song is mildly popular?

    Like is it a fair comparison between songs like say rough and lovesick girls?

    No hate, I’m just curious how you moderate the difference in charting patterns?

    I think the very top hits are pretty much indisputable though I think impact-wise, some other songs deserve to be up there, but obviously this seems to be based off digitals so I understand this ranking.

    The methodology is in the thread I have.

  • Hum... It's still a no bc PTD didn't have 50% of the impact NL is having. But as you did with your own metrics, ok.

    Impact cannot be measured by numbers. Read the disclaimer.

It may surprise you, especially if you're coming in expecting your favs to do better than the data shows. Feeling is subjective, and this is trying to be objective.

  • Like you gave a song 50 points if they are song of the month, right? I'm basically saying pointing songs between 10 and the more impressive achievement 30.

    I think you should read the method behind the ranking before suggesting this. They put a lot of work into it.

    I read it after and i stand by the opinion that NL should be higher.

  • Also not at you all downplaying 'Butter'. This is how brainwashing works. People have been made to think that 'Butter' wasn't a smash hit with insane peak and impressive longevity. Read this thread if you want to know how big 'Butter' was.

    Literally no one mentioned the other songs like Rollin, Lovesick Girls, & Dolphin being extremely high; everyone was laser focused on PTD and Butter. Makes you wonder.

    I guess it's because nl and butter were released around same time and nl is just bigger outside of the peak? It's way more noticeable when butter is this high even tho nl is clearly ahead on gaon and on most other charts.

    Why would LSG being questioned when it's still in the top65 (i think) on Melons after 15 months? Rolling was massive and to me the biggest hit this year in S.K, Dolphin too was huge, competing with HYLT (another huge song) last year so no questioning. About Butter and PDT may be bc they are new releases and NL too, but one is super high, the other two not so much, but one of the two is a NH.

    Buuuut if you are implying some (not all obviously) are being biased against BTS, well, this could be true too.
