01) Kylie Minogue – kylies a bit hit and miss for me and heard this song everywhere, not realising it was her. Its not too bad. Can get a bit annoying if you hear it several times in day though!!
02) Hannah Jadagu – this is quite nice, I think I remember this, which is good because if have a terrible memory!
03) Kelela – its okay, not really my kind of thing, the beat gets a bit irritating after a bit.
04) Ionut Cercel – I think I wasnt impressed the first time round.
05) KISS OF LIFE – its okay, it’s a bit mellow, not awful.
06) beabadoobee – it was okay, she faintly swears in the back ground. Can I let that pass or not?
07) McKinley Dixon – not something I would chose to listen to but the chorus is quite good.
08) aespa – mini bibs does kpop events, I made some bracelets and phone charms for her and this was one of the bands I did. I kept getting the ae the wrong way round!! Its not bad.
09) Cafuné – its okay, its quite catchy and grows on you.
10) MARINA AND THE DIAMONDS – remember when it felt like these were submitted every week! Its okay, I didn’t hate it.
11) Amy Sit Ying Yi – this is pretty terrible!
12) Amaarae - it’s a bit one note and monotonous!
13) chuala – the tune is okay, the vocals were awful!
14) Des Rocs – excellent!
15) Donna Missal – its okay, not something I would chose to listen to.
16) Kai Weinkauf –  bit of a drab start, bits of the tune were not bad. its okay.
17) San Mei – this was not too bad, quite liked it.
18) Gryffin, Tinashe – not my kind of thing, it was okay.

1. Kylie Minogue - Yawn. I never really got the hype for this when it released, I don’t think it’s anything all that special.

2. Hannah Jagadu - Cute! Could have done a little bit more but it was a nice listen

3. Kelela - Oh this BANGER she was so robbed. The production on this still hits so good.

4. Ionut Cercel - Fuck off <3

5. KISS OF LIFE - Yasssss Natty slayed this so hard, it’s a shame that the full group has never released anything nearly this good.

6. Beabadoobee - Mother is mothering

7. McKinley Dixon - Oh I forgot this was sent! Really love the production on the chorus and the verses are solid. I do wish there was a little bit more variation in the instrumental, it starts to get a bit stale after a while.

8. Aespa - This is definitely one of their strongest releases but that’s not really saying much. Still not crazy about this.

9. Cafune - Yasssss I’m moving sm I adore this sound

10. MARINA AND THE DIAMONDS - Lorna I feel like we need to have a talk because why the hell did you send this mid-fest and not the serve that is Dancing’s Done

11. Amy Sit Ying Yi - This isn’t Lala Hsu!

12. Amaarae - I mean Amaarae always delivers what else do you want me to say. The production on this is SO fucking good.

13. chuala - Oh wait this is kind of a hit… it definitely takes its time getting to the point but once it get there it’s so cunty

14. Des Rocs - It’s just not for me

15. Donna Missal - MOTHERRRRRRRRR I cannot believe TSC gave this 13th it’s such a fucking stunner. Looking at my comment for it I apparently wasn’t feeling the bridge at the time but it’s definitely clicked for me now it’s sooooo good.

16. Kai Weinkauf - I’m snoozing. Very basic

17. San Mei - I’m so glad San Mei got her flowers for this because it’s so good. So smooth and that CHORUS.

18. Gryffin, Tinashe - Tinashe sounds great on this but I don’t think I’m ever going to be able to get behind Gryffin’s production style. It just doesn’t do anything for me.

01) Kylie Minogue - it was a fun moment, but it hasn't exactly stood the test of time for me and tension ended up being way better.
02) Hannah Jadagu - i love the dreamy psychedelic feel, this was very good!
03) Kelela - a vibe throughout. i like it!
04) Ionut Cercel - i'm certainly not the audience for this. just feels childish and gimmicky to me.
05) KISS OF LIFE - it was a pleasant listening experience.
06) beabadoobee - the chorus is very sonically satisfying, it's a cool track.
07) McKinley Dixon - not my favourite execution of this sound, but it's a style i dig.
08) aespa - this reminds me of a melfest reject. it's a bit corny really.
09) Cafuné - it's a pleasant little vibe. not fully transfixed, but it's definitely nice.
10) MARINA AND THE DIAMONDS - an interesting selection for best of 2023, but it is one of her best ageing songs honestly.
11) Amy Sit Ying Yi - very bad, a resounding no from me.
12) Amaarae - i still find this super fresh and immaculate sounding.
13) chuala - very repetitive, but i suppose it fits with the themes of the song. it's fun, i like the oontsy production.
14) Des Rocs - not hideous but it's not really resonating with me.
15) Donna Missal - maybe it requires time to get acquainted with the structure, but for now i'm finding it a bit too chaotic.
16) Kai Weinkauf - pleasant and has a nice instrumental build, but a bit boring within the context of best of.
17) San Mei - not her best, but it's still a cool vibe.
18) Gryffin, Tinashe - basic but executed well enough i'd say!

10) MARINA AND THE DIAMONDS - oh a classic like!!!
11) Amy Sit Ying Yi - oh! um…. maybe i just don’t get it

01) Kylie Minogue - sure it defined the year for gays I guess but what is this doing here? Seems like a cheap shot to me… because it was a hit AND won TSC like two wrongs don't make a right here
02) Hannah Jadagu - feel like I'm back in my college radio days, this sound is very reminiscent of that
03) Kelela - not that I needed this to be a bop but… it would've helped! I woke up less than an hour ago kelela keep me up please!
04) Ionut Cercel - kelela take notes! Jk this also could be like funnier/campier but good for this little godfather in training
05) KISS OF LIFE - I mean they have served harder in other songs but this was fun elevator music
06) beabadoobee - not gonna lie these songs are already starting to blend for me… feel like a bunch of us went for the same sound here. As for what I have to say about beabadoobee it's kind of like muse with an soft alt girl gap commercial tweak
07) McKinley Dixon - thank you mckinley for the energy!!! I needed it this morning
08) aespa - babe wake up the aespa tetris song is in tsc
09) Cafuné - maybe I turned my volume up but this song feels full-bodied to me, like a nice wine
10) MARINA AND THE DIAMONDS - stop trying to make MARINA AND THE DIAMONDS happen it's not going to happen jk it's not really that bad especially compared to some of her more recent annoying tracks
11) Amy Sit Ying Yi - yiiiiiiiiii
12) Amaarae - this definitely is a serve… it's soft but has got some cunt in its veins and that fuels this
13) chuala- wow this really is the same thing over and over… sorry just not that special to me all things considered
14) Des Rocs - thankful for this palette cleanser <3 what I appreciate about this entry is that I feel like it's telling a story and I enjoy its classic rock sound
15) Donna Missal - I think this caters to my tastes well like it's got some life in it
16) Kai Weinkauf - a beautiful lil campfire or beach tune
17) San Mei - well it won TSC already so this doesn't really need my attention but I do genuinely enjoy this and it's less annoying this is here than Kylie
18) Gryffin, Tinashe - b a s i c but m o m
