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! So yes, I was a horrible blogger in February. I never posted a January Wrap Up or a TBR and I think my reading definitely suffered because of it. Therefore, today I will be including both months in one post!
And the last episode of my 2019 in review series is finally here! Yes I released all four parts on the same day… I have A LOT of posts that need to go up before January is already HALF OVER so it couldn’t be helped. Hopefully it has been a nice welcome back to my blog after my LONGGGG hiatus? Like with my top 5 books post, these aren’t in any particular order, but just a collection of my favourite albums and songs of the year!
Okay, so you might have seen my bookish stats post that I posted earlier today…. but here is the music version! Enjoy!
So this first set of statistics includes all the music I LISTENED to in 2019. Unsurprisingly, my most listened to songs, artists and genre were K-Pop. That being said, less than half of my listening was K-Pop, as you can see by the little genre chart on the right. The most surprising part of this was a) that I listen to a lot of native american music (must be the instrumental stuff I like) and b) that TWICE’s BDZ (Japanese song) was my most listened to song! I think I listened to it on repeat for about 2 weeks in the summer when I had it stuck in my head, and then never really listened to it again! I’m not surprised that GOT7 was my most listened to artist though- their albums this year were top-quality, and I went to a concert as well. I thought Queen’s Don’t Stop Me Now would be amongst my top songs, as well as MAX’s Hell’s Kitchen Angel, but apparently I didn’t listen to them as much as I thought I did!
