100. Ibiza Girl (NMB48)

It's a great Top 100, with a lot of big names, but also a few lesser-known idol groups who managed to rank! There is a lot of variety as far as the songs musically, as well. If you see something you've never heard, I recommend going and giving it a listen! 

Along with this, it was also decided to post 25 Honorable Mentions. The below songs all had multiple votes, are mostly ties with each other (or all ranked very closely) and all could have easily ended up somewhere in the Top 100 if voting had just been a slight bit differently. Because of this, I thought these songs were definitely still worth mentioning, and I hope you will all give them a look:

Kidoku Suru (HKT48)
Kiss me Kiss me (Coco Decoru)
Moshimo aeta nara (Osaka Shunkashuto)
Natsukoi (LinQ)
Ahhahha! ~Chouzetsu Bakushou Ondo~ (SUPER GiRLS)
Kowareta Ai no Hate ni (Predia)
Kiraki Runway (Prism Box)
Chu-la-la (RYUTist)
Brand New Style (GALLETe)
Sakura Apparition (
Mukashi no Kareshi no Oniichan to Tsukiau to Iu Koto (HKT48)
Kimi wa Kimagure (AKB48)
Toomawari no aijou (Nogizaka46)
Dream Last Train (Triplet)
Tomorrow World (Weather Girls)
Primary Colors (Kamen Rider Girls)
Colorful Days (LinQ)
Yuki Usagi (IDOLING!!)
Campanula no Yuutsu (Terashima Yufu)
LEFT or RIGHT…? (Cheeky Parade)
Tabidachi Kirari (Tsuribit)
Idol Illmatic (Rhymeberry)
Super Hero (Fairies)
Himawari (PASSPO)
Evolution Da (HR)

So, what songs that you voted for managed to rank? What are you surprised to see (whether it's unexpectedly high or low)? Let me know in a comment, I'd love to know everyone's reactions to the results!

I'd also like to take a moment to let those of you who do not know that idol BEATS Radio is looking for volunteers to join the staff here. There are different jobs, and the more people who volunteer, the more we can split them up and make everything less time-consuming. If you enjoy this station and want to see it continue to grow, or if you are passionate about idol music and hope to spread it, please consider joining me. You can get full information on the post linked here.


  1. Very interesting results, it was worth a wait! The top two is hardly a surprise for anyone though. I don't like either that much, but TokiSora is quite pretty. I'm particularly glad to see Shabadaba relatively high at 14th and Orange Port's YELL at 72nd! I wonder if someone else besides me voted for it? I'm also glad to see some RYUTist in there. I'll definitely go through this list and check out any songs that I have yet to hear.

    1. Oh and I have to say, I defintely expected more Hello! Project at the top, but there's stuff like Babyraids and Yumemiru Adolescence above Password is 0! That's pretty cool, well, I'm MM biased myself, but I still think so.

    2. Honestly the fact that most of these songs came from mainstream groups and few from less popular groups means there actually WASN'T a lot of variety. I've read more than one comment from fans that all *48 group songs have the same music / melodies because the same songwriter / producer writes all their songs! Hello! Project songs all have a distinct sound too for the same reason. The only song I voted for that actually made the top 100 was "Heart no Hoshi" by Sakura Gakuin, and that song ranked at #94.... *sigh* This is exactly what I expected though. I knew that some of these less popular groups would not rank at all. I am glad to see two songs I voted for in the honorable mentions: "Kiraki Runway" by Prism Box and "Kiss Me Kiss Me" by CoCo DeCoRu [the way I type their name based on their logo]. I realize there are STILL idol fans who don't know about (or even care about) less popular / indie groups, which only makes me want to support them even more. I have a website, two blogs, a Facebook page and several threads on Hello! Online for the idols I care about, so I guess I need to find a way to get these idols I love some more recognition. Here is my list of the best songs from 2014 along with some observations about the idol scene.

    3. I think I voted for "REAL", "Ambulance" and "Urahara Temptation" among others, so I'm glad that these songs ranked .).

  2. I'm sad because I forgot to vote. :(

    Well, my favorite song of the year was either "Do You Believe?" by GEM (which was #17, yay!!) or "(Kari) wa Kaesuze be your soul" by Up Up Girls (Kari) [none of their songs ranked... :( ]

    I'm also happy "Hanamichi!! A~mbitious!" charted, too. And of course all the H!P songs. And Yumemiru Adolescence, Tokyo Girls Style, RYUTist, PASSPO... lots of good songs last year. :)

    Even though I prefer groups, I hope there are more (successful) solo idols this year. This chart was entirely taken up by the groups (unless you count Michishige Sayumi's solo).

  3. Yeah, I agree, there wasn't a lot of variety. There are so many idols who didn't make it to the list at all. It's just I expected there to be even less variety, because most international idol fans I speak to only seem to know the mainstream groups. I'm mostly a Hello! Project fan myself, but I'm always curious about other idols as well. Sakura Gakuin is one of my favourites outside of Hello! Project. :)
