Top 20 songs – March week 1

2006-03-06 19:31:13 2010-11-24 11:03:24

Not a lot of movement this week as Fly To The Sky continues to edge out Lee Soo Young for the top spot. Lee is getting closer and closer. No. 3 and No. 4 are also unchanged after big jumps last week. Lee Hyori’s "Get Ya`", her highly anticipated return to k-pop, debuts at No. 5. I think all the top 5 songs have a chance to challange the No. 1 spot next week.

A new feature this week: I’ll be adding a link to melon or bugsmusic for a 1 minute sample of each top 20 songs. Click on the link and then find the song by track No. Click on the song title or listen button and you will be able to sample the song for 1 minute. Remember, these are not downloading links. I hope this feature can partly replace the top 20 countdown. unsure.gif

Sources of the top 20

The sources of this top 20 chart is pretty much the same but the weight assigned to each source may be different each week because some charts do not update weekly (e.g. MNet M!Countdown) and I assign fewer percentage when it happens. From now on, I’ll list my chart sources each week. For March week 1:

ChartKorea – 20%
Hanteo Weekly Album Sales (2 weeks lag) – 20%
MNet M!Countdown – 16%
SBS Inky Gayo Top 50 (1 week lag) – 12%
Various Internet charts (Melon, Jukeon, MaxMP3, Dosirak, SBS Music Park, MBC Gayo top 50) – 12%
MTV Kountdown – 10%
MTV Poll – 5%
Gasoo appearance on gayo shows (Music Core, Inky Gayo, Music Bank, MTV Live Wow, MTV Most Wanted, Pops In Seoul) – 5%
