Hello everyone! It feels like forever since I’ve greeted you since the past couple of posts have all been reviews! Have you been reading all of my BTS posts this week? If not, be sure to check them out! Today’s post is a countdown of my top 10 favourite BTS songs of all time. Will you be surprised?
“Maybe I, I can’t touch the sky. Still, I want to stretch my hand out, I want to run, just a bit more”
This song is incredibly heart-breaking and yet somehow relatable and emotional all at once. Jin’s voice is perfect for this song and the gorgeous instrumentation is just wow. I learned how to play this song on the flute because I love it and can’t sing to save my life.
#9- Trivia 轉 Seesaw
“Is there really a need to keep repeating ourselves, saying this was love and this is love? We’re both tired and holding onto the same card”
Suga’s rap has always been my favourite in BTS and in this song we get his rap and his husky, gorgeous vocals so really, I couldn’t ask for much more! The song has a sort of jazzy R&B sound which I’m loving at the moment as well ❤
#8- House of Cards
“A house made of cards, and us inside, even if you say you see the end, even if you say it’ll collapse soon”
I love dramatic R&B music generally, but something about the sincerity and tone of the vocals in this song makes it even more special; they give it a sad yet sensual atmosphere. Also, the part at 1:40 is just so pleasing.
“This goodbye came to me at the end of my play that was only filled with lies, that’s the price I’ll pay”
The rap line’s most recent song has a gorgeous instrumentation and mixes a variety of rap styles with rap-singing to create an absolute masterpiece that deserves way more attention than it gets. Like, really, wow.
#6- Spring Day
“Honestly, I miss you, but now I’ll erase you, because that will hurt less than resenting you”
Catchy, beautiful and moving, there isn’t much more I could ask from this song, to be honest. It manages to perfectly capture an astonishing range of emotions. This song is a masterpiece and I’m so glad it exists.
#5- Save Me
“It’s dangerous how wrecked I am, save me because I can’t get a grip on myself”
I don’t actually know why I like this song so much. It’s a genre that really isn’t my favourite and even has a repetitive chorus, which I usually hate. And yet, somehow I can’t get enough of this song and find it quite beautiful…
“Deeper, deeper, the wound just gets deeper, like pieces of broken glass that I can’t reverse”
Another R&B track… you can probably see what kind of music I gravitate towards. This song is full of some kind of raw pain which almost hurts to hear, yet is somehow so beautiful and captivating. Also, those high notes.
#3- Blood Sweat & Tears
“Kiss me, I don’t care if it hurts, hurry and choke me so I can’t hurt any more”
Apart from being an incredible song, Blood Sweat & Tears will always hold a special place in my heart not only as the song which got me interested in BTS, but also as the song that introduced* me to K-Pop.
*I had heard K-Pop songs before, but this was the first one that I actually listened to outside of being forced to by friends.
“Tell me, if my voice is fake, should I have not thrown myself away?”
V’s most recent solo track has a similar sort of R&B sound to his previous and if I’m not completely in love with this style and this man’s voice then I don’t know what love is. The song is haunting and dramatic and as close to 100% perfect as it is possible to get.
Before I move on to my number one choice, I wanted to include a few honourable mentions!
First up, is place #11: the vocal line’s newest song The Truth Untold. It showcases their gorgeous vocals and is just a very beautiful song.
Secondly, the only music on this list is from the HYYH era and later, so there is none of the group’s earlier hip-hop stuff simply because I prefer the songs from later albums. However, my favourite song from the group’s early albums has got to be Danger. It’s such a catchy song and the choreography is top-notch.
Finally, I don’t have very many exciting, hype songs on this list because although I love them the music I find most appealing tends to be more sorrowful or R&B, so I want to give a shout out to Dope for being just a great song!
“Take me out of his hell, I can’t free myself from this pain. Save the me who’s being punished”
Jimin’s solo has a very dramatic, theatrical atmosphere, with a lot of R&B influences. His voice is incredible and the lyrics talk about being unable to escape the pain which a lie has caused. This song gives me goosebumps and chills and I can’t stop listening to it.
Who are BTS?
BTS are a South Korean boy group who debuted in June 2013. There are seven members: RM (formerly known as Rap Monster), Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook. V is also an actor and RM, Suga and J-Hope all have solo careers as well.
And that’s it! Were you suprised by any of my choices or do you agree with me? This was my final BTS post for now, but I’m sure I’ll do some more in the future! If you haven’t seen my previous four BTS posts, please go and give them some love!
