iKON’s New Kids: Continue mini album dropped last August and I couldn’t get Killing Me out of my head. And I really love Zico and IU’s Soulmate so it still made my August playlist. After being super into the first two tracks of Seungri’s The Great Seungri album, I spent August listening again and again to the other tracks.
I also couldn’t get Red Velvet’s Red Flavor out of my head, even if it was an old song. Maybe it’s just me and my system rejecting Power Up. Haha! Lastly, I got into HONNE’s Day 1 because I debated writing a fanfic with it as the prompt. I couldn’t write anything about it so I just ended up listening to it so much. Haha! And then Mino did two lives last month and so I got lots of new music recs! Here are the playlists for the songs he played on those two lives.
As usual, I’m late in posting but whatever, I doubt anyone’s waiting with bated breath for this. Haha! For July, I’m not even kidding, I only exclusively listened to this playlist plus the entirety of Seungri’s The Great Seungri album. I wanted to include all of the songs in his album in the playlist but it felt like I’m being lazy. Haha! Crush and Zico’s “Cereal” is SO MY JAM I LOVE IT SO MUCH. Seungri’s album was such a solid album and I just seriously love it. AND DON’T GET ME STARTED ON SOULMATE BECAUSE THAT SONG, I practically exclusively listened to it for a week!
Do send me your recent favorite songs~ Especially ones in English? I HAVE BEEN SO OUT OF THE LOOP HUHUHU
Well, I’ve been pretty bad at updating this blog, huh? Fangirling over Winner has really taken over my life. I always say I’ll come back and post more or talk about Winner more here but I’m just always on Twitter. Hahahuhu
Anyway, so here are the songs I’ve been into for May (the playlist above) and for June (the playlist below). For May, I listened to Post Malone’s latest album, and spent it waiting for Christina Aguilera’s album to drop by looping the singles she dropped. I also made a home on Spotify’s R&B playlists so I got a lot of song recommendations from there. That T-Pain track I heard on the radio while driving, which I rarely do now since it’s all CDs I jam to on the car. Dagny released a song though and she’s always a fave.
For June, my main jam was Xtina’s Liberation album. Like, I still listen to it constantly. I LOVE THE ALBUM, I LOVE MOST SONGS. A greater part of June was also dedicated to Katie Kim’s Remember. Good lord, it such a chill jam for me. And the aesthetics of the music video is A+. Blackpink finally made a comeback and while I’m not the biggest fan of the mini album, I’m a basic bitch and I love DDU-DU DDU-DU. Kesh got me to listen to the latest album from 5 Seconds of Summer and while I haven’t finished listening and absorbing the whole album, the ones I’ve heard were all good.
Please do share your recent bops so I can listen to more music!
I know, I know, I haven’t been in here for so long. I even forgot to share the songs I’ve been into last March. So I’m sharing those, as well as the few I’ve cobbled for April.
Honestly, March was ruled by Shanti Dope, a Filipino rapper, which I shared with my sister but she ended up being the most obsessed. So it’s all I hear in the apartment. Haha! Big Bang released “Flower Road” so for a good whole week or two, that was the only song I listened to. Good lord, the feelings. Then I checked if Wolfie had released any new songs and got into those. I thank Mino for introducing me to Post Malone. And Spotify’s rap playlists for Drake’s “God’s Plan”. I LOVE JUNNY’S “HANDLE YOU”, can I just say.
I’ve been neglectful for new music last April because WINNER RELEASED THEIR SECOND ALBUM AND I HAVE NO CHILL IT’S ALL I LISTEN TO. And of course, The Weeknd’s new EP. I only included “Call Out My Name” into my April 2018 playlist even if I WAS SO TEMPTED TO PUT EVERY TRACK. And I only included “Everyday” from WINNER’s new album even if I want to include every track. Haha! Anyway, Kesh shared Bobby’s “In Love” with me so I listened to that quite a bit and I was also amazed by Mamamoo’s “Starry Night”. I want to start getting to know them because those pipes! “Rollin” was care of my sister while Tobi Lou and ODIE’s songs were picked up from Mino. BECAUSE I ALSO ONLY LEARNED THAT THE WEEKND HAS A NEW EP FROM MINO WE’RE IN THE TWILIGHT ZONE
I only have 9 songs for you in here because I am obsessive by nature and so I listened to each of these songs repeatedly and quite exclusively for a few days or so. I also loooooove HunnyHunna’s whole MUSEUM album but I only included the track “Wonderland” in here, because that was my gateway track. “Mundo” by IV of Spades was my jam for most of Valentine’s Day and the days after that, since they dropped it on that day. Frankly, right now, I’ve been listening to G-Dragon’s songs because him going to the army has been taking up a lot of my brainspace and I just listen to his songs to not feel sad.
Anyway, do share your favorite songs as of late! I always need recs! My playlists are almost always kpop-only so I need new English songs!
I started 2018 with being so into Charlie Puth’s “Attention” then when BØRNS released his Blue Madonna album, all bets were off. There are only two tracks from Blue Madonna in here but I listened to that album exclusively for two weeks? Three? And then just this Monday, I started getting into k-hiphop again (because I miss Prison Playbook and have been listening to its OST and a lot of the songs in the OST are in the k-hiphop playlist on Spotify). Also, Yoon and Lee Hi’s covers of The Beatles’ “Golden Slumbers” are aces!!!! Both are so good and yet the two feel so different too. Hope you check these songs out!
I’m just sharing my top 100 tracks for 2017 according to Spotify. It wasn’t really surprising which tracks topped the list since I started obsessing over kpop (AGAIN) this year. Hope you get a tune or two (or more) to your liking!
I’ve been getting in touched with k-hiphop because of MINO so most of the songs in here are just that. There are only a couple of songs in this playlist because these are all I listened to this past December. I know that I get quite obsessive but seriously, they’re the only songs I listened to and almost always on repeat at that.
The takeover is real. Look at my November tunes and you’ll see that they are mostly kpop. Good lord, I cannot deny it anymore, I’m in too deep once again. Hahaha!
I always dig Dagny’s songs so I’m so glad she dropped a new track. HONNE is a new discovery care of Sarah and I’m still trying them out but so far, I like what I’ve heard. Some songs in here were introduced to me by my sister such as “Havana” and “Gucci Gang”.
What have you been listening to the past month? Do share them!
October just ended and WOW I ABSOLUTELY CANNOT BELIEVE IT’S NOVEMBER NOW. Like, WHERE DID 2017 GO?!?! (Down the dumpster, I guess.) Here are the songs I’ve been listening to the past month.
Sweet Dreams has been on constant rotation. Not a week passed by that I didn’t listen to it. I go one day exclusively listening to it then I venture for other tracks the next day. Then I come back to it. I even learned to play it on the uke because I love singing it too.
If you’ve been reading my weekly round-ups, there was a week when all I listened to was MINO’s Body. It was a perfect working background song for me too because I was able to focus and finish my deadlines back then. Because I keep on listening to it, my sister Lianne also got the bug from me and she randomly sings this song and side-eyes me. Hahaha!
Walk the Moon (AKA fave band) has been releasing singles and I’M SO EXCITED FOR THEIR ALBUM IN A COUPLE OF DAYS
Epik High also released an album and TEARS THEY ARE FLOWING
IV of Spades also dropped a new track and damn, these Filipino kids are just so talented. I can’t wait for them to be super big in the very near future. Loving the retro~
The kdrama This Life is Our First has taken over my life the past month so its OSTs are in here too, obviously.
Niall also released his Flicker album last month and so there are some tracks from the album in here.
