Honourable and dishonourable mentions for 2013

At the end of 2013 I did a favourite songs list and a worst songs list, but I never made an honourable and dishonourable mentions list, simply because the thought didn’t occur to me at that time.  Since the 2014 honourable and dishonourable mentions list was received quite favourably, I thought why not backtrack and do the same type of list for previous years?


Once again this list is a Kpopalypse website exclusive and won’t be reposted anywhere else (mainly due to lack of relevance given that these are older videos now, but also because reposting a 32-link YouTube list takes a lot of time to re-edit and I’m too lazy).  Previous years will be done in future posts.  In the meantime, read on and enjoy these alphabetically-sorted lists of some songs that I liked and didn’t like from 2013!

The Kpopalypse Lexicon is my best friend, is the Kpopalypse Lexicon your best friend?
