1.Elvis Presley – Can’t help falling in love

Genre: Pop

A dose of them feels, Feels nice and hygge

(Suggested by Amanda Wong, 19-A2)

Some songs age like fine wine and this hit from 1961 sure does! 8.5/10

2. IV of Spades – Mundo

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

Helps to focus when studying, Mood Booster, Chill

(Suggested by Jovan, 18-A6)

If anything, this song is proof that music transcends language barriers. 8/10.

3. 胡夏 Hu Xia – 红墙叹 Hong Qiang Tan

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

A dose of them feels

(Suggested by Jade Ow Yanhui, 19-A2)

The use of traditional Chinese instruments in this song piqued our interest immediately and the clean vocals are a plus. Fun fact: this song is from the hit Chinese drama – ‘The Story of Yanxi Palace’. 8/10.

4. Phum Viphurit – Hello Anxiety

Genre: Indie

A dose of them feels, Chill

(Suggested by Natalie Goh, 19-A2)

The hopeful lyrics were a pleasant surprise because we were expecting the song to be melancholic, considering its title. 8.5/10   

5. PENGUIN RESEARCH – Button

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

Hype you up on a sleepy day, Mood Booster, Lyrics are about becoming adults so it’s quite fitting for us JC peeps XD

(Suggested by Clyde Lhui, 17-A5)

‘Button’ is full of nostalgia! The chord progressions provided a nice buildup for the chorus and the lyrics are very inspirational! 8/10.      

6. Christopher Cross – All Right

Genre: Pop

Mood Booster

When you score 1 E 4 Us, this song tells you that everything is all right, that you will make it if you just try again and pick it up because who knows, it might just work out fine this time 🙂

(Suggested by Austin, 17-A5)

Cross’ single is full of 80s charm and the inspiring lyrics are oddly comforting. 7.5/10.

7. LSD – No New Friends

Genre: Pop

Helps to focus when studying, Hype you up on a sleepy day, Good for gyming, A dose of them feels, Mood Booster, Chill, Party / Rave

(Suggested by Anonymous)

Whimsical and eccentric, ‘No New Friends’ manages to remain relatively upbeat, even as the mood of the song evolves as it progresses. 7.5/10

8. Ava Max – Sweet but Psycho

Genre: Pop

Helps to focus when studying, Hype you up on a sleepy day, Good for gyming, A dose of them feels, Mood Booster, Chill, Party / Rave

(Suggested by Anonymous)

The beat is undeniably catchy and a favourite at parties. However, we did not like how the lyrics stigmatised psychosis. Sweet but problematic. 6/10.  

Bonus recommendation:

Absofacto – Dissolve

Genre: Alternative, Indie

A dose of them feels, Chill, Mood Booster

This song is perfect for those midnight hours when a wave of emotions suddenly hit you and you suddenly experience the soft boy/girl hours. Mint tea goes well with this one. 8/10 because I only like the chorus.
