    When it comes to deciding on my favourite song of the year there is one thing over the past 4 years that hasn't changed and has remained consistent. And that is Taeyeon releasing my #1 favourite song of the year.

    From 2015 through to 2018 her powerful and emotional vocals have always shined through to me the most and left the biggest impact on me from the year musically.
    I could be accused of being biased in this because she is my ultimate bias. But she is my ultimate bias for a reason and that is because her vocals are able to reach and engage with me in a way that no other vocalist is able to recreate.
    And tbh it is difficult to argue with these choices as my #1 song of the year.

    2015 - I

    (Hard choice between I and U R which is one of the best Korean ballads of all imo)

    2016 - 11:11


    2017 - Fine

    (I could've selected a number of songs from My Voice tbh because this is my favourite album of all time and some other contenders would've been Time Lapse, Fire, Cover Up and Make Me Love You)

    2018 - I'm The Greatest

    Yes I agree, Taeyeon always puts out consistenly great bops from year to year, and her voice is always amazing!

    11:11 is a masterpiece literally one of the best songs ever made.

    My forever favorite is "Why"... the dance version pretty much sums up that there's nothing she can't do.

    The instrumentals and MV aesthetics are simplistic, but that just helps to bring out the rawness of the song and Taeyeon's vocals. For a song that isn't catchy pop, I was quickly obsessed with listening to 11:11 repeatedly!

    "Why" would've been my top pick for 2016 if it wasn't for 11:11. Because I agree that Taeyeon showcased that she can sing and dance well at the same time! Just a shame that Why came out before everyone became basic bitches for tropical house....

    It really showed out her vocals sooo well I love how there wasn’t a need for Run at the end like she usually does it was just a nice simple song with amazing visuals.

    I've been a fan of hers since 'My Voice' and I'm kinda sad that I didn't listen to her before that lol. She has a nice range of styles in her albums and she pulls them off really well. Something New is probably one of my fave title tracks and albums of this year.

    I'd have to feel her to determine her consistency

    Even though I didn't like Something New, it still had Circus and All Night Long, which I love love love.

    I’m so happy 11:11 is getting the love she deserves :lover1:. Either way I always check out Taeyeon’s comebacks. She doesn’t disappoint.

    It is :yesr:

    Taeyeon is the only artist that I've seen in concert who actually sounded better live than they do on the cd!

    "I'm The Greatest" was the b side to Taeyeon's Japanese debut "Stay". I'm surprised that you're only just now knowing about it. Because I remember raving about the song during the summer and I could've sworn that I tagged you in those threads!

    Oh and watch the lyric video to get the full emotional impact of the song.


    From my interpretation of the lyrics. This is Taeyeon finally letting go of the hate comments that has plagued her emotional state for years and this is her now saying that she will no longer give a fuck and won't be broken ever again. Because she now knows who she is and she knows who are the most important people in her life.
    And tbh from her SNS and concerts she has shown a new passion for life and it does seem that she's now genuinely happy.

    Same tbh. Whilst Something New isn't one of my favourite releases of the year, I do appreciate Taeyeon wishing to try something new (terrible pun I know) Circus and Baram x3 though are among my favourite b sides of the year. Especially Circus because that song is just beautiful!

    Something new is my favorite release from her this year but she is constantly releasing bops.
