ALLLLLLLLMOSSSTTTTT PARADISSSSSSEEEEEEEE! Haha, just kidding.

Hi all, so. I’m bringing back the Bookish Playlists! It actually did really well last time, and I promised to do one every month, but I haven’t had time until now. So, this month I’ve created a playlist for a kdrama inspired book! This makes me extremely happy because 75% of my music is kpop. So, I’m taking this opportunity to bring you all the jams!

Book Reading Playlist – Wintersong

wintersong_inspired_playlist

Hey all, so I’ve decided to feature a book reading playlist inspired by a different book I read once a month! I’m just trying to broaden my blog content, and I thought this would be a good idea. This is an English blog, and I do mostly listen to Asian songs (Mando-pop, K-pop/rock, J-pop/rock, Phil-pop, etc.) but I’ll try to keep it to mostly English songs. Plus I think this will be a good way for me to find new songs too!

This month I’ve decided to make a playlist for Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones, because that’s pretty much all my life has been the last two weeks! So here are thirteen songs I’ve been loving which remind me of the book!

Andy BLACK: The Shadow Side [Review&Discussion]

“Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.” – Plato

I bought this album, and this post is 100% my opinion. This is not a sponsored post.

On Friday May 6th 2016, Andy Biersack the frontman of rock band Black Veil Brides released his first solo record. I’m a long term fan, so all of the content he produces means a lot to me. Anyway, let’s get into it~

Homecoming King: 3.5/5 hearts

I like the meaning behind it, on the Andy Black YouTube channel, Andy says the song is about the cool kids from high school. They were popular as teenagers, but life doesn’t always work out for them. A lot of this song is imagery such as, “Here comes the invisible man” which is referring to himself, or at least that’s what I believe. However, I knocked off 1.5 points because it was hard to follow the song until I looked up the lyrics. His voice was clear, but the story was hard to comprehend until I read it.

We Don’t Have to Dance: 5/5 hearts

It’s catchy, relatable, what’s not to love? I literally listened to this song for days on repeat, and even got a few friends addicted to it.

Ribcage: 3.5 hearts

I like the melody and rhythm of this song! It’s the lyrics again that have me knocking hearts off. “Nothing in the cage of my ribecage” confused me. Aside from that, I really enjoyed this song, it was meant to be a dance song. While it’s not the usual music I jam to, I can rock out to this! On a side note, “Ribcage” is lowkey referencing the time he jumped off of stage a broke his ribs. Ouch.
