What I’ve noticed is that when I listen to music, I like powerful thumping beats and tough sounding vocals, softer heart felt ballads or fast paced rhythms with soaring vocals. Mr. Mr.’s new song “Do you feel me” fits into the latter category.
I think it goes back to my roots in J-culture. I find that music that is distinctly Kpop, but would make a great addition to an anime soundtrack, is what I gravitate to. My brain classifies songs into openings and closings, battle songs, transformation sequences, romantic encounters, and sadness. This song goes into the closing folder, but also the section of the anime that relies on the power of friendship as a plot device.
I think all I’m trying to say is sometimes I pretend that my life is an anime, and Kpop is my soundtrack. Add this song to my OST.
So I did a much better job with the volume this time, although you still may need to alter the volume between my videos and the music videos, especially if you’re wearing headphones. For this playlist, I focused on songs I literally never tire of. These might not be my favorite songs from these artists or even from Kpop in general, but they never seem to get old, and that’s a special talent in and of itself.
So in the first Kplaylist blog post, I said all the song names and artists in the post, but I’m not gonna do that. You’ll see the artists in the side youtube bar if you watch it on Youtube, but I would rather you watch it embedded. It would be nice to have an element of surprise in my playlist, and I fee like if you look at the songs beforehand you’ll be more prone to skipping through the list to your favorites. There are aesthetic reasons the list is in the order that it is with the mix of songs that I made, and I respect that many people might have different tastes in music than me, but out of respect for the effort and thought I put into this, please don’t skip songs (at least the first time through, after you’ve given my list one full listen feel free to skip all you want).
Also, I made a playlist of just the songs if you want to listen to the playlist without the commentary:
So questions for the viewers, do you like the commentary format of the first playlist video better (where I made one comment video for every 2 videos) or do you like this playlist better (where I made an intro video for every video on the playlist). Let me know, because I wanna pick one format and stick with it.
Also if you have an idea for a playlist, be sure to put it in the comments section.
