Hello everyone! and welcome to song-book association! I might do a couple of these in the future, as I think it brings together the two main topics of my blog nicely! How this works is, essentially, I click shuffle on my playlist, and then I pick a book to fit the songs that come up! The playlist I used today was my “Repeat Rewind” playlist that Spotify curates for me.
You can definitely also take this as music and book recommendations, as both songs and books on here are all some of my favourites!
GOT7 Youngjae- Nobody Knows
After Dark by Haruki Murakami was the first full-length work I ever read by Haruki Murakami and it’s both weird and wonderful. All of the characters in this could relate to Youngjae’s lyrics about dealing with their problems alone, but I think Mari’s sister, Eri, in particular resonantes with this song and it’s feelings of sacrifice and loneliness and pain.
“She knows she will end up a mere conduit used for the passage of external things. Her flesh creeps with the overwhelming sense of isolation this gives her.”
Hello everyone! May has just ended as I am writing this and the heat definitely signals an approaching summer. I had mock exams this week, so not much reading happened, but here is a breakdown of what I’ve been reading and listening to this month!
Mangas made up half of everything I read this month (largely because I had exams and anything more taxing was just not going to happen). For some I keep starting new series instead of continuing other ones, but oh well.
Okay, so the title is a bit of a misnomer. It would be better to call this the “asian-language edition” but that sounds kind of funny and seeing as the majority of the list does happen to be K-Pop I just went with that instead, but any songs in a Asian language are eligible for inclusion on this list. In any case, the following is a collection of my 30 favourite songs so far this year. It changes a lot, but this is how I rank them at the moment (let’s be honest, it will probably change the day after I post this but whatever).
Because this is just a quarterly update I’ve only quoted my favourite lyrics from each as opposed to giving a little spiel about why I like the song. In my end of year one I’ll give a bit more detail 🙂 Enjoy!
Hey guys! March ended almost a week ago, so I’m running a bit behind but anyway, here are some of my fave songs that came out this month (or well, last month). Also, note: if the MV of a song came out, but it doesn’t become available on music platforms (e.g. Spotify, iTUNES) until April then I haven’t included that in this post (aka: RM’s solo won’t be here ;)).
