Twice – Fancy

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

Hype you up on a sleepy day, Mood Booster

(Suggested by Anonymous)

When you first hear it, it does not seem to be striking in any way. However, the catchy tune and melody gets stuck in your head against your will. Bright and playful, the addictive chorus is sure to tickle your fancy. A strongly biased 9/10.

 

 

John Denver – Take Me Home Country Roads

Genre: Country

A dose of them feels, Chill

(Suggested by Anonymous)

This should be one of the most popular and well-known country songs out there. Despite the memes, this song is actually really soothing and brings back the nostalgia of drinking home-brewed moonshine while sitting in the grassy hills, gazing at the deep blue shimmering waters. Makes you proud to be an American citizen. Wait, since when was I an American? 9/10. 

 

 

Daft Punk – Get Lucky

Genre: Disco/Funk

Mood Booster, Party/Rave

(Suggested by Gerald Oh, 19-I4)

This is one of those songs which everyone knows and has heard before, but doesn’t know the actual name of the song and artist. The repetitive lyrics, strumming on the electric guitar and the rhythmic drumming is sure to make your head nod to the beat and sing along to the chorus. Just make sure you don’t listen to this a day before an important exam – you might be grooving in your seat! 8.5/10.

 

 

KT Tunstall – Black Horse and the Cherry Tree

Genre: Pop

Hype you up on a sleepy day, Chill

(Suggested by Anonymous)

The song is full of energy, and the vocalist’s voice is very distinctive, unlike any popular artists today. The many different percussion and instruments forming a harmonious instrumental, paired with the vocalist’s husky voice results in a charming little song which you never knew you would like, but needed to listen to at least once in your life. 8.5/10.  

 

 

AB6IX – Breathe

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

Helps to focus when studying, Chill 

(Suggested by Anonymous)

The soft vocals and simple beats in ‘Breathe’ gives it summer vibes. Easily palatable, “I wanna breathe to set me free” will be stuck in your head for some time. 8/10. 

 

 

IU – Through the Night

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

A dose of them feels, Chill

(Suggested by Anonymous)

‘Through the Night’ is a bittersweet tune, almost lullaby-like with IU’s soft vocals complementing the acoustic guitar in the background. If you’re feeling them sad boi hours, this is probably the song you would need. 8/10. 

 

 

Chen – Flower

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

Helps to focus when studying, Chill

(Suggested by Christabel, 18-U5)

Contrasting to the soft, relaxing instrumentals in the background music, the singer’s powerful and emotional vocals shine through. Especially nearing the end, the high note sent shivers and chills down the spine. Reading the lyrics when listening to the song is heavily encouraged, and for a better experience, have a cup of hot tea prepared (and tissues, just in case!). 9.5/10. 

 

 

Hyukoh – Love Ya!

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

A dose of them feels 

(Suggested by Anonymous)

Putting the music aside, the lyrics of this song is simply full of lovely metaphors and descriptions that it warms your heart simply by just reading them. The vocalist’s unique and husky voice fits really nicely with the song, and you may find yourself singing along at the end as the vocalist sings, “I love  ya…”. Watching the music video is highly recommended. 9/10.  

 

 

Bonus Recommendation: 

Rich Brian & Chung Ha – These Nights

Genre: Pop

This song is brimming with passion and is unique in its marriage between 80s R&B sounds and a pounding synth bass. ‘These Nights’ would be a great track to play when one is driving around a city at night. Or in Rich Brian’s words, “do it for the thrill”. 8.5/10.
