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.
How about you? Please do share awesome music!
Another month has ended so I’m here to share the songs I’ve been into the past month. Here’s a Spotify playlist to make it easy for you!
The songs here are mostly by artists I already like and follow, such as Demi Lovato, ZAYN, Sia, Niall Horan (album this October!), Dagny, WALK THE MOON (NEW ALBUM THIS NOVEMBER NOPE I’M NOT HYPERVENTILATING YOU ARE), and BØRNS among others. Dagny’s “Wearing Nothing” has been on constant repeat recently and I also got Sarah into it. Hahaha! The playlist even has its acoustic version and a remix. Basically, I can listen to it again and again.
I finally got around to listening to Dua Lipa and YES, I LOVE THE GIRL AND HER MUSIC. And to Lauv as well. New discovery c/o Sarah on IV Of Spades, a Filipino band. LISTEN TO THEM!!!
If you’ve been following my weekly round-ups, the songs I usually spotlighted every week are in here, like Kang Seungyoon’s You. Yes, it looks like Korean songs will now always be in my playlists. I’M BACK, KPOP! Hahaha. Two songs from the My Secret Romance soundtrack are also there because there was a night I got into kdrama OSTs and I listened to those two again and again because Y SO CUTE
Also, not in there are Taeyang and G-Dragon’s songs because I had playlists of their concert setlists so I listened to them separately. But I listened to them A LOT this September since they had their concerts and I SAW THEM!!!! SUCH SUPERSTARS SO GREAT SO TALENTED SO GOOD
Anyway, please do share what you’ve been listening to recently. Don’t be a grouch! Share good music!
Here are the songs I was into these past two months. I decided to just join July’s and August’s songs together because I only had 5 songs for August? August wasn’t a good month for song discoveries since I didn’t have a job and hence, didn’t drive much. As I mentioned before, I usually only get to listen to new pop songs on the radio. I also got in the habit of listening to some of my CDs when I’m driving so there was no radio time.
I was also mostly listening to G-Dragon’s setlist for his concert TODAY (!!!!!!) so I didn’t include all those songs in this playlist. If Faded Heart by BØRNS is any indication, I’m so gonna love his next album next year. Eek, can’t wait! Some tracks were repeats from previous months too because I’m me and I listen to faves again and again.
Hopefully you get to discover some good music from this!
It’s the last day of the month so it’s time to share the tunes that I were into!
This month saw me driving alone for the first time so of course I had around an hour of alone time in the car at least three days a week. Which means most of the songs here are the ones played on the radio so a lot of EDM, which honestly I don’t really listen to slash seek out? But since listening to the radio calms me down while driving (I AM VERY PANICKY BUT THEN AGAIN, DUH, I AM AN ANXIOUS PERSON), I chose to tune in to the station that plays current pop songs. I end up belting and singing along too much when I tune in to the ~oldies~ station that I get distracted from driving? Maybe I can finally tune in to the classics when I become better at driving. Hehe. (In other news, I over-reversed last night and banged my car on a wall. Damn.)
Anyway, here it is!
Even though LANY just released their debut album today, it has a lot of LANY tracks because I LOVE LANY AND I’M SO HAPPY THAT WE HAVE NEW SONGS!!! And of course I also love Mating Ritual and he finally released his debut album so YAAAAAAAS HE’S HERE DEF.
I practically put all of the songs Justin Bieber and Demi Lovato are featured on this playlist. And ugh, Selena Gomez with Bad Liar, I tried so hard to resist it but it’s so addicting! Anyway, favorite discovery is Daniel Caesar’s Get You featuring Kali Uchis, all thanks to Sarah. And Lou Lou by Albin Lee Meldau care of Dawn.
Sadly, no Bleachers because I gave up halfway with the album. It just wasn’t clicking with me. Maybe next month I’ll try listening to it again and maybe I’ll end up liking it better?
Hope you enjoy! And do share songs you think I should listen to!
