INFINITEs hit “The Chaser” was named as the best song of 2012 for its catchy tune as well as the musical composition. Regarding the song, the article said,“The group’s masterpiece single takes listeners on a ride that starts the second the track starts. With an introduction packed with forceful singing, dynamic guitar licks, and dramatic violins, it almost sounds like the song will never find a true direction. But at just 50 seconds, it quickly evolves into a waterfall of 80s synthesizers (courtesy of super producer Sweetune), vocal energy and an explosive, trumpet-driven chorus. The track puts INFINITE and Sweetune at the forefront of the genre’s best in 2012, proving risk and innovation in K-Pop can trump all.”

Also in the Top 3, the second place belonged to Sistar’s “Alone” , and in third was “Memory of the Wind” by Brown Eyed Soul’s Naul.
