Star–Lee Hi   Knee–IU   Toy–Block B   I Am You, You Are Me–Zico

These four songs are also pretty random.

Star is just the feeling of being in love with someone when they are your everything. Note: the guy in the video is actually One from SMTM4 and I was all WHAAAT when I found out cause man he’s good looking there and if there were a rapper that pretty I would’ve remembered. (The power of makeup)

Knee is a song about wanting to have the simplicity and be given the unconditional love that children have. Wanting to go back when you didn’t know anything about pain or trials.

Toy is catchy and about a relationship where the guy is saying ‘I’ll be anything you want me to, do anything just don’t leave me’. If I remember correctly.

Zico is in the band Block B. His song is about being in love with someone who doesn’t want you back and saying ‘You can say whatever but we’re similar.’ He’s kinda telling that no matter how she denies it they’re the same.

Doubt–Mary J Blige+Taylor Swift    Goodbye–Avril Lavigne    Youth–Troye Sivan   Rise–Selena Gomez

For this week I picked a bunch of random songs. Usually I pick a theme but I did not today.

The first song is Doubt. This song was sang originally by Mary J. Blige. Taylor Swift got permission to sing it at her concert and invited Mary J. Blige to join her. I really fell in love with this song. Everyone doubts themselves at some point and needs a little encouragement.

Goodbye is just a sad song that I wanted to post because its pretty. Sorry.

Youth is a catchy song and it’ll ‘help you recover from the feels’ of the last one as my cousin told me.

Rise is also an inspirational song about being able to overcome. I think it goes with Doubt really well since you have to first have faith in yourself then you can Rise above your past.

English Songs

Amber — Borders   Avril Lavigne — Innocence  Selena Gomez — Revival  Eric Nam — Love Yourself(Justin Beiber Cover) with Sungha Jung

I didn’t really know where to put this song because it’s techinically by a Korean artist, however, it’s in english so I put it here. This song has a beautiful message and was sung and rapped beautifully by such a talented person. Yes, that is one person singing and rapping even though it doesn’t sound like it. Just as a fun fact Amber produced, wrote, and sang the song on her own. She even produced the video herself.

Another Avril Lavigne song, this one sort of bittersweet. It reminds me of those moments after the storm where you take a step back and are like ‘what have I done to deserve this life’ in a beautiful moment that you appreciate all the more because of the storm.

Selena Gomez’s new album is definitely one of her better ones. It’s much more personal and less like every other thing out there. It has more of her story in it. Revival is something every person can relate to.

The last song is a Justin Bieber song covered by Eric Nam. I like this version a lot even though I like Justin’s original version too.

 

Korean Songs

Gummy-You Are my Everything   BTS-Just One Day  Block B-A Few Years Later  Red Velvet-One of These Nights

Obviously the first song is from a show that I am watching right now called Descendants of the Sun. the drama is about a Special Op Captain, Song Joongki(bae is back!!!), and a doctor, Song Hye Kyo, who fall in love. It’s a really good show, but it does have it’s bloody scene(as all shows featuring the military and doctors tend to). It’s one of my favorite dramas in a while(and that only has a little to do with the fact that Joongki is in it…). Honestly, I’m re-watching all the episodes that I’ve already watched on days when the new episodes aren’t posted just so I can watch it, and Joongki, everyday.

The second song is by a band that is slowly, reluctantly, becoming a favorite, BTS (or the Baby Gangsters as my family likes to call them). It was in a drama but I can’t remember which. I liked the song from the drama but never looked it up until i heard it a couple days ago on a youtube mix and then was like ‘I really like this song whose it by?’ The Baby Gangsters were not who I was expecting.

The third song is Block B’s comeback song. A quick youtube search of Block B will tell you that they do NOT typically do ANYTHING like this kind of music. That’s why many Block B fans were so surprised. The band has come so far and they’ve improved so much since the last comeback it was astonishing.

The last song is by Red Velvet. This is one of the first slow songs I have heard out of them and it really shows off their talent. May I just say that poor Wendy looks like a strawberry shortcake… But Joy looks really pretty and sophisticated with her new short hair.
