January’s almost over, y’all!
Looking back, this month feels long and short at the same time. Way too much happened but I didn’t notice the days go by. It was a mix of many things.
It was also a month of mixed music choices. Through the month, my songs on repeat were wildly different and changed many times. Without further ado, let’s get to the music!
Psycho by Red Velvet
This is the song that’s currently playing on repeat for me. I hadn’t truly heard Red Velvet’s music before, and simply tried this one when it came on my YouTube recommendations. On my first listen, I didn’t like it and it gave me a bad impression of Red Velvet’s overall music.
Later, it played automatically after another song and I liked it slightly better. After about 4 or 5 random listens, I grew to like the song. I still don’t understand exactly why I like it. The song overall doesn’t appeal to me but some parts of the song sound really good and they’re the ones that got me hooked.
I’m also very obsessed with this song’s choreography now.
Winter Flower by Younha ft. RM
This song came up on my recommendations when it was released, and I fell in love with it the first time I heard it. The song caught my attention because of RM’s involvement but it became one of my favourites because of Younha.
Younha’s voice in this song is BEAUTIFUL. Her high pitches are a work of art. And RM’s rapping complements her vocals perfectly. This is a 100% song and I listened to it on repeat for a long time.
Black Swan by BTS
This is the first song release from BTS’s new album, and I honestly didn’t like this song the first time I heard it. Later, I saw it being loved by many online but didn’t relate.
One day I gave it another go without watching the video and that made so much difference. Now, I really like the song. It’s so good! It has a very different vibe compared to BTS’s last album but I’m excited to hear more like this from them.
Warriors by 2WEI and Edda Hayes
Yo. When this League of Legends cinematic dropped, I was done for. This video, along with this cover of Warriors by Imagine Dragons, is MAD. I could NOT stop watching this on repeat. The song and the video end leaving me wanting more, which leads to me rewatching this video again and again. I couldn’t get enough of this.
Dance Monkey by Tones and I
This song is so nice and catchy! After listening to it just once, I couldn’t get the tunes out of my head. I love it. There’s one video on YouTube of her singing this live in a concert, and that’s also really nice.
Other songs that I listened to on repeat were not new introductions but old favourites:
- Don’t Wanna Cry by SEVENTEEN (Picnic Live Version)
- The Last Song by Taylor Swift ft. Gary Lightbody
- Mañana Es Too Late by Jesse & Joy and J Balvin
- Lamberghini by The Doorbeen ft. Ragini
