Music of the Month – May

Hello my loves,

This post is somewhat late due to the world’s current events and the fact that I don’t feel comfortable posting anything other than BLM content right now because it’s so, so important however, I’m still in the process of putting posts together because I have so much I want to talk about and share and I want to get it right so, naturally, it’s taking me a lot of time.

In the meantime, here’s May’s music. Enjoy .xx

death by a thousand cuts – taylor swift

I heard Taylor sing this acoustically at her Tiny Desk Concert and instantly was like…why have I never paid attention to this song before ?? It’s no secret that I’m not a huge fan of T Swift’s music after the 1989 era because I feel like it just lost all its magic for me, however, this song really brought it back. I then listened to the studio version and instantly understood why I’d never acknowledged it before, and it’s because it sounds nothing like the acoustic version nor does it have the same feeling  –  it has a bunch of poppy beats thrown over it that in my opinion ruined it. I however really did like the lyrics and so basically forced myself to listen to the studio version enough times that I stopped disliking it, and here we are.

wildflower – 5sos

This song has grown on me a lot lately, I’d find it randomly popping into my head because it’s just so catchy. 5SOS are in their musical prime right now. I also love this music video a lot.

cayendo (side a – acoustic) – frank ocean

It’s no secret that I adore Frank Ocean, he’s probably the love of my life. This song is just devastatingly beautiful, there’s no other way for me to describe it. It’s just incredible. I love it so, so much. A masterpiece.

pretty girls – jaylon ashaun, jesse leprotti

I heard this in the background of a Youtube video and thought it was super catchy. Perks of watching so many Youtube videos is that you can always find great under-appreciated music through them!


sea – golden child

Golden Child are just really cute, and this song is like a guilty a pleasure because if I listened to it objectively it’d really make me cringe, however, they’re so cute I don’t even care and this song is just really fun and bright and happy. I love them.

attracted woman – monsta x

Not sure what the thought process was for the title of this song but it’s a hidden gem and I’ve really been enjoying it lately. Yoo Kihyun vocal king.

nonstop – nct 127

I had to replay the beginning of this 3498394823 times because I couldn’t get over the fact Jaehyun was RAPPING ???? The Lord has answered our prayers. Amen. This song gets an 11/10 just for that.

not by the moon – got7

I’ve given myself a few weeks to warm up to this song, I love it but it’s not my favourite comeback of all time, however, it deserves a mention because it’s still so good and well, babies. Jackson’s “나의 모든 게 너로부터 살아나, 널 영원히 놓지 않을 거야 난” is my favourite ever, it’s just *chef’s kiss*.

aura – got7

We love a GOT7 comeback and the TALENT it brings. I actually like this better than the title track, I just love how cool it sounds, and I like the use of the autotune too.

love you better – got7

Mum I love them. I loooove them. They’re the best. The chorus to this is just so catchy, it’s been stuck in my head all month. I’ll just wake up some mornings and it’s just stuck in my head. I’m not complaining. The whole “너의 창을 knock knock 두드려대, 한밤의 love love serenade, yeah I need you in my life, I want you for my whole life” ??? OOF.

ridin – nct dream

Dreamies are killing it lately !! This song is so catchy and the dance routine ?? *chef’s kiss*

7 days – nct dream

My favourite Kpop song of the month !! I heard this in the background of a Dream appearance and was like wait…what’s this??? It’s so catchy !!! I couldn’t believe I’d never heard it before but now I’m making up for it as it’s been on repeat non-stop since. I love this one so much.

All my love,

Chloe .xx

  1. I never listened to Cayendo when it first came out, but it’s been a bit of a Frank Ocean filled few weeks, and like Fiona, I genuinely cried the first time I gave it a proper listen. That said, it is Frank, so not sure what I expected hehe x

  2. Cayendo… I don’t know why, but when I first heard it I cried. Because it’s so beautiful and it was released when I needed it the most. Sometimes it’s weird to think about how much power a simple song really has but this is one of those songs for me. x

  3. I totally agree with what you said about Taylor Swift! I used to be a really big fan of her music but I feel like her new music is too pop and generic now.

  4. I have really been loving 5SOS’ album during this lock-down. I think because I finally took the time to sit down and listen to it properly, I am able to fully appreciate it for the masterpiece that it is. Not sure if I should still be listening to their album considering all the controversy surrounding Michael at the moment but that is a different conversation. xx

    1. I agree! When I took the time to listen and go through it properly it grew on me so much more, they really have outdone themselves this time. Michael’s accuser retracted her statement and said it was a case of mistaken identify which I’m inclined to believe because the whole thing seemed very genuine so, I don’t think we have anything to worry about. Hopefully .xx

      1. That is such a relief to hear! I am all for supporting victims but also 5SOS were a huge part of my teenage years which were some of the hardest years of my life so far so the idea that they could have been abusing their fans really upset me. xx

        1. Of course, it’s hard for any fan to believe that the people they love and look up to could do such things. Obviously I can’t say for sure but in this case I really do think we should believe the fact that he’s innocent and that it was in fact just mistaken identity. Of course we don’t know these people personally either but if there was a list of people I’d suspect were capable of doing these things, Michael would be nowhere near making the cut .xx
