1. Lauv and Troye Sivan – i’m so tired 

Genre: R&B

A dose of them feels, Chill (Suggested by Sharlene Tio, 19-O2)

Despite its rather simple lyrics and rhythm, ‘i’m so tired’ is still effortlessly catchy and gets you hooked. 9/10.

2. Ling Tosite Sigure – Unravel

Genre: Alternative, Asian Pop (KPop, JPop, CPop etc.)

Hype you up on a sleepy day, A dose of them feels, Chill

(Suggested by Bryan Sim, 19-U4)

We like the neat progression from the singer’s whisper-like vocals to harsher screaming vocals. The instrumentals complement the singer’s voice almost perfectly. 8/10.

(However, if you find this too loud for your taste, there are many acoustic versions available on YouTube, like this one.)

3. OMFG – Hello

Genre: EDM

Hype you up on a sleepy day, Good for gyming, A dose of them feels, Mood Booster, Party / Rave

(Suggested by Bryan Sim, 19-U4)

Personally, we find this piece more dubstep than party/rave. The repetition in the beat is catchy but proved to be distracting upon listening to it for long periods of time. 7/10.

4. Mamamoo – Gogobebe

Genre: Asian Pop (KPop, JPop, CPop etc.)

Mood booster

(Suggested by Joshua Toh, 19-I5)

To quote the song, “It’s ok not to be fine”, the song is encouraging and is a feel-good tune that we think even the majority of non-KPop fans will like. 8/10.

5. Izumi Tanaka – Once I Loved

Genre: Classical

A good song to listen to after a tiring day at school and before you sleep. Super calming

(Suggested by Xinning, 19-O5)

With soothing and slow instrumentals, this song is a great song to listen to when you’re feeling stressed! 8.5/10.

(Unfortunately, we were unable to find ‘Once I Loved’ on YouTube. However, you can find the song in our Spotify playlist!)

6. Sheppard – Coming Home

Genre: Pop

Hype you up on a sleepy day, A dose of them feels, Mood Booster

(Suggested by Dylan Lim, 19-O3)

Catchy and filled with boundless energy, ‘Coming Home’ will definitely wake you up and make you feel energised! 8/10.

7. Mac Ayres – Easy

Genre: Pop, R&B

Chill

(Suggested by Lee Wan Xin, 19-I1)

Mac Ayres’ smooth, butter-like vocals take the cake and are so enjoyable to listen to. If you’re taking a roadtrip to Malaysia next month, perhaps you can consider adding this song to your playlist! 8/10.

8. Elliot Berger feat. Laura Brehm – Diamond Sky
Genre: EDM

Hype you up on a sleepy day, Mood Booster, Chill, Motivational at the start of the day

(Suggested by Emma Lim, 18-I2)

Airy, which slowly progresses to a steady beat, then to a rather strong bass (which may put off some). Its inspiring lyrics, though, almost make you feel like you can do anything. 8.5/10.

Bonus personal recommendation:

Aimer (feat. RADWIMPS) – Butterfly Knot/Chouchou Musubi

Genre: Asian Pop (KPop, JPop, CPop etc.)

‘Butterfly Knot’ (蝶々結び, chouchou musubi) is a song by J-Pop star, Aimer. The gentle piano accompaniment gives the song gentle vibes, which greatly complements Aimer’s smooth voice. The duet beautifully ends the song on a happy and hopeful note. TL;DR, the lyrics of ‘Butterfly Knot’ describes how a relationship is like tying a knot. 8.5/10.
