Hello lovelies! It’s been a while since I’ve done a music post since people don’t usually read these, but music is a big part of my life, so I wanted to do this for myself. Today I’m going to talk about what was at the top of my playlist this year!
1. TRIED TO – TAPES
This song takes the number 1 spot on my playlist because I always go back to it. If I could only pick one song to be my favorite this year, this would be it. I used to play it over and over again and I would never get sick of it.
2. MAKE IT REAL (VESTIGE REMIX) – BABE
This one’s a close second; I discovered this and “Tried To” around the same time, so I would go back and forth between the two.
3. FAKIN’ IT (FT. OFELIA K) – KASKADE AND FELIX CARTAL
This song is pretty addicting too and when I tweeted some lyrics to the song, he somehow found it and liked it, so that was pretty cool. 🙂
4. PIÑATA (KULTUR REMIX) – JAPANESE WALLPAPER & MONTGOMERY
This isn’t as addicting as the others, but I always find myself drawn to this song.
5. LADY – NOÉ
This song has a sexy feel to it, so it’s another appealing melody.
6. TRNDSTTR (LUCIAN REMIX) – BLACK COAST
I used to be obsessed with this song and I still really like it now.
7. INTO YOU – ARIANA GRANDE (JEDI REMIX)
I think this last song is only on Soundcloud, but this is the video where I discovered it! I also love this channel and their style, so check them out too while you’re at it!
This remix makes the song sound super cool, and I’ve been obsessed with it since this video came out.
Now if you’re a good friend of mine, you may know that I started getting into the Korean music world about a year ago. I used to be super against it all, until I discovered Korean hip-hop and R&B. Now I listen to a variety of groups, although I wouldn’t say I’m a crazy fan or anything. If I had to pick some favorites from this year, it would look a little like this:
1. JE T’AIME – WINNER
I’m seriously addicted to this song; it’s super chill and relaxing with a little bit of sexiness to it (thanks to Mino’s rapping) and I could literally press replay on this all day. WINNER is probably the only group I really like, although I’m still sad Taehyun left, he was such a good talent. I believe DEAN produced this track, so that’s probably why it’s so good as well.
2. I AM YOU, YOU ARE ME – ZICO
I think you can probably get the hang of the type of music I like from the choices I’ve been putting up. This has a really chill vibe to it and I like the melody a lot.
I also don’t watch much of Zico and Block B, but I know he usually goes for super crazy looks, so I really appreciate his more natural look in this video because he looks really handsome here. *okay, fangirl moment over lol*
3. BLOOD, SWEAT, AND TEARS – BTS
Ah, BTS. One of the more popular groups at the moment and my second favorite boy group. I don’t really know their story, but I think they’ve become really famous in the last couple of years?
Anyways, this is their latest hit, and even though I’ve listened to it a lot, I haven’t gotten tired of it yet. Plus, they look so handsome/pretty/gorgeous/hot in this video, LOL. So if you’re into the whole Korean scene/guys, you’ll probably swoon too, haha. Oh, and I’ve heard their videos can tend to be highly symbolic, so have fun analyzing it! I love the artsy, luxurious feel this music video has; it must’ve been fun to shoot it.
4. FUN WITH BOYS – BTS
Lastly, I’m giving this song an honorable mention because I just found out this was a real song this week, haha. I always thought it was a funny song they made up like Bapsae (which is also a real song, they just made funny choreography for it *facepalm, this is why I’m not a real fan hahaha*). I always heard it in videos, but for some reason, I didn’t know it was an actual song of theirs.
Anyways, one of the music shows says that this is a retro funk hip-hop song, so this fits perfectly into my usual taste of music. I chose this video because I love V’s facial expression when he says sorry in this particular performance, haha.
Okay, so that’s my 2016 playlist! Leave some song recommendations in the comments below! I hope you liked it and I’ll see y’all tomorrow!
