Hello dear bloggers and the world beyond!
So, Poorwa and I decided to collab. And when we were discussing topics, we came up with something we both love, MUSIC! So for today, I decided to shed my bookish skin and become the music geek that I am!
For this collab, we both sent each other our top 10 favourite songs and reviewed them! My songs and Poorwa’s reviews can be found-here. And scroll along for Poorwa’s songs and my reviews!
Here we gooooooooooooooooo!
Poorwa’s top ten Playlist
1. My Love won’t let you down ~ Little Mix
I love the starting of this song. Like, it’s so sweet and relatable and tragic. It’s just perfect. And how motivating it is. I’ve heard it a couple of times now, the lyrics are really really encouraging! Also I liked how they stretched some words like ‘my’ and ‘million’. I would def say that it’s a song you should listen to if you’re in need of some encouragement!
Favourite lyric- “I’ll be there with you, no matter what you’re going through’.
2. Cologne ~ Selena Gomez
I like the continuous beat ‘dum dum dum CLAP’. But I didn’t really like this song. I listen to Selena’s music quite a lot, I hadn’t ever heard this song, but yeah, I didn’t like it. From as much as I gathered, it’s about losing somebody or something and still missing them. I can’t really relate to it. I usually only like songs that I can relate to. Soo, this one was a no-no for me.
Favourite lyric-“There’s a reason you’re everywhere, breath you in like you’re in the air”
3. White Night ~ NCT 127
This is the first Korean song I’ve ever heard, so, keep that in mind people. Anyways. I liked how it started off with a nice piano instrumental bit. Also the lyrics are beautiful, I don’t know about the Korean ones but the English ones, which I could understand, are definitely beautiful. This one again, is about remembering somebody or something special. If I had to describe/ classify it somehow, I would say ‘It’s a slow dance song’.
Favourite lyric- “When I force myself to sleep, I meet you in my passing dream”
4. White Horse ~ Taylor Swift
Now here is a song I’ve heard a million times, yet I fall in love with it more each time I listen to it. Well, what can I say about this? Our Queen, Taylor, turns heartbreak into a masterpiece. It’s about being young, falling in love and losing the person you loved, because, perhaps, they weren’t part of your fairytale. Everyone has a fairytale, readers, it just depends when you find it! : )
Favourite lyric-“This is a big world, that was a small town…there in my rearview mirror disappearing now”
5. 2!3! ~ BTS
The very second Korean song of my life. Yes, I think I liked this one. The lyrics again, were very good. It’s a motivating song. I liked how they merged all their voices together, that was nice. Yep, this one’s a good one! Well done BTS (from a non kpop listener).
Favourite lyric- “So thanks, for believing in me, for handling those tears and scars”.
6. Capital Letters ~ Hailee Steinfield, BloodPop
AMAZING!! The ‘Then there was you’ part had me totally singing along. This is the type of music I listen to when I want to experiment with my ears. This one, passed the experiment with FLYING COLOURS! The background music, Hailee’s voice, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, this was so perfect!.
Favourite lyric- ‘Yeah, then there was you, pull me out of the crowd’.
7. Jopping ~ SuperM
I REALLY ENJOYED THIS ONE. It had a lot of English lyrics in it. And I liked it quite a lot. The starting is amazing I think I’m obsessed with the way songs starts. But I just liked it. And that’s high praise coming for me, as I don’t, you know, listen to K-Pop.
THIS SONG IS JUST SO FREAKING CATCHY!
Favourite lyric- ‘The roof’s on fire let it burn to ash’.
8. Born Singer ~ BTS
Just one word- Nice. I liked it and the ‘I’m a born singer’ transition part was sung really well. Well done BTS!
Favourite lyric-‘I’m a born singer’.
9. Long Flight – Taeyong
Ahh his voice is so nice!! The background beat music is amazingly catchy! I love the blend of English and Korean!
Engrean? You should totally listen to it!
10. Breathe ~ Little Mix
Little Mix is just amazing! This song is so vulnerable, about losing someone you love. The part where is goes ‘Now I can’t erase your number, I’m still sleepin’ in your jumper’. SOOOO PRETTY!!!!!!
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh this was so nice. Why haven’t I heard it before???
Favourite lyric- ‘Do you remember me?’
And……that’s over already! I had so much fun doing this, and I found sooo many good songs! Thanks a bunch to Poorwa for suggesting this wonderful collab idea! Do go check out my favourite song over at Poowa’s blog.
