aka ‘I don’t know if you can tell but I bloody love K-POP’
Well you see now this wasn’t meant to happen. I’d planned on uploading 12 posts for 12 playlists this year and it was gonna be a great project and therejustwasn’tenoughtimeinoctoberokayplsdon’thateme. Nevertheless, here is a somewhat bumper edition of the monthly soundtrack to make up for it.
If you couldn’t already tell by the first line of this post, my countless tweets about it and the fact that there are 3 songs from the same band in this playlist – I. LOVE. BTS. They, along with K-POP, have been in my life since about late 2015 and they are just SO. MUCH. GODANG. YES. Now I wouldn’t be surprised if you recognised BTS because they have been taking over America and the UK right now and to be honest, rightly so. Teaming up with Steve Aoki and Desiigner, this month saw them release MIC DROP – which in itself was a tune to begin with – but this remix? And the music video??!!! It (and the band) are incredible.
The past two months have definitely seen me tapping into what I like to call the ‘Connor and my Dad’ side to my music taste. Compared to previous months, things have definitely taken a rockier turn with my music choices (she says having proclaimed her love for k-pop) and it’s been awesome. This kind of music is not only special to me because it’s a huge part of Connor and I’s relationship and daily lives, but because it’s this kind of music that I fell in love with in the first place. YONAKA’s ‘HEAVY’ has been blasting through our speakers since it was released and a cheeky little 30STM number has creeped on in too.
I’m already thinking about December’s playlist and this month is looking to be a very music filled month so buckle up, get ready for (knowing me) a lot of Spotify playlists and if you need me,I’ll probably be in my room dancing to K-POP.
