This month I was worrying about not having much music to talk about because there seemed to be absolutely naff all happening in October, until the entire world’s population decided they were going to release new music halfway through the month and now…this post is longer than my list of mental health issues. It’s not funny but it is. Please laugh.
lights up – harry styles
This…where do I start with this. What do I say about this. The first time I heard this song and watched the music video I bawled my eyes out like a baby, and then I watched it again and cried and then again and cried and again and cried and you know, you get the idea. This angel. Angel of my life. The love of my life. I’m so proud of him !!! Times a million. I love this so so so so so much I cannot even describe. I’m just so proud of everything he is and everything he continues to be and more importantly, who he’s yet to become. I love this man so dearly, I really do. He is everything. I’m so, so proud.
rotate (clockwise) – rak-su
I heard this song in the back of a Kpop TV show (yes, you read that right) and I was like oh…Rak-Su? Nice. Shazamed the song to see what the title was and this was it! Super catchy, these guys always deliver on that front.
cry for me – camila cabello
Camila is blessing us with so much music left right and centre lately I don’t even know what to listen to first. What I do know however, is that it’s all so good. I loved her performance of this on SNL too. Goddess.
easy – camila cabello
This song is easily one of the most beautiful I’ve heard in a while and I love the lyrics so much, everything is so soft and whimsical yet loving and sad at the same time. I really love it so much. My heart.
trouble (stripped) – halsey
As I mentioned in last month’s music post, Halsey’s new music reminds me so much of her old music which I’m loving because her old music was my favourite. I was going back through her old discography and came across the Room 93 EP, it rang a bell and I knew it was significant for some reason but couldn’t put my finger on it, until I heard this song again and it all came flooding back to me. This is probably one of if not my favourite Halsey song, it brings back so many memories. I love it so much.
good thing – zedd ft. kehlani
The catchiest thing ever. But really were we expecting anything less – this has been on repeat. So good!
m.i.a – cher lloyd
She’s back she’s back she’s back with another bop.
i love you 3000 II – stephanie poetri, jackson wang
I honestly just thought this was just a mashup at first because it seemingly popped up out of nowhere but then they released the MV for it and no, this is a real thing. One second while I scream.
what’s on your mind? – alessia cara
I’ve missed Alessia Cara so much, I think I said this last time but I haven’t really enjoyed much of the newer stuff she’s put out over the past couple of years but I think she’s finding her feet again and I’m really loving some of her new stuff !! This included. It’s so good.
october – alessia cara
Such a beautiful song. Love love.
lose you to love me – selena gomez
The lyrics in this are so beautiful, some of my favourite and most haunting quotes are on this whole idea / subject so I’m glad someone finally turned it into a song. Selena did such a good job.
鏡面の波 – houseki no kuni
I watched my first anime recently and the intro music was one of the most beautiful and mesmerising things I’ve ever heard, which also goes for the animation itself because…wow. Just look at it.
jopping – sumerm
Jopping is what happens when you create a Kpop group targeted at America and none of them speak English. I’m looking at you Mark Lee. This is a great song anyway.
double knot – stray kids
One of the best Kpop songs of 2019 and I’m fully ready to fight everyone on it. This is what we call brilliance, ladies and gentlemen. SO GOOD. This was so well executed I just, SKZ really hit the nail on the head with this one. I am obsessed. Also I have serious fashion envy in this because every outfit they’re wearing I wish was in my wardrobe.
humph – pentagon
Everyone sleeps on Pentagon but they’re so good I just :((( this is such a cute and happy song, I’m pretty sure the 8mil views on this are all from me because the video and the music is just so good. I love it.
shine – pentagon
Will Pentagon ever make a song that isn’t the catchiest thing I’ve ever heard? No, no they won’t. The evidence is right here kids.
navigation – hui
Hui is so, so talented, I’m obsessed with everything he produces and writes, not to mention his voice, he’s just so extremely underrated.
piece of peace – j-hope
This song :(( Hobi is such a precious angel (what’s new), I feel like this encapsulates him perfectly. So catchy and of course has the sweetest message. This has been on repeat.
24/7 heaven – bts
This month was dedicated to obsessing over old Bangtan songs that I don’t play nearly enough these days. Every time I hear this song I kick myself for forgetting how good it is and how much I love it. The live performances of this are also my favourite.
house of cards – bts
So dramatic and so amazing. Again, I always forget how good this song is until I hear it for the first time in a long time. Also, Jimin aggressively singing “baby, calm down”? let’s not talk about it.
love is not over – bts
Every time I think of this song all I can hear is JK softly singing “love is not over, over” in that precious voice of his. I seriously love this one.
oh little girl – produce 101 (slate)
So after Produce X 101 I decided to go back and watch the first male season of Produce 101 (season 2) and this was one of the songs they had to perform at the evaluation. I’m always a sucker for Produce songs because they’re always so good.
run away – txt
TXT’s concept isn’t really my thing therefore I don’t stan them but I always check out their new releases anyway because ARMY support their own, and wowie this song is so good !! They did such a great job, it’s so catchy and I love the concept for it.
follow – monsta x
So catchy !! I’m so glad they’re back. I love them.
amen – monsta x
This song has officially become one of my favourite kpop songs – I heard it in the background of an MX show and was like…which song is this. I need it. Cannot believe that was the first time I’d heard it !! I’m seriously so obsessed, it’s so good.
need u – monsta x
This randomly popped into my head the other day and I forgot how catchy it was !! Seriously so good.
i am you – stray kids
Just something that popped into my head after SKZ’s recent events, I thought I’d take a trip back to this song just to remind myself how good it was. OT9 forever.
super clap – super junior
This song is described as having a 90s theme and boy were they right – 90s themed anything??? I’m there. The chorus in this is like, a slice of Heaven. The sound is seriously so good !! Suju may have got themselves a new fan…
And there we have it loves – let me know if you like any of these!
All my love,
