Song of the day [Day 15]

Completely unrelated to the entry btw, I just love Jeongyeon with all of my heart and wanted a cute gif to start with.

To cut straight to the point, for the next 31 days I'll be updating this with one new song, not entirely sure why I'm doing this, perhaps just for the kiis of my few months older self finding this and cackling at my current taste, whatever. I'll try to keep it at least half Western/non-Asian so no need to worry about finding exclusively generic, manufactured music you cannot understand here. Hope someone reads it and maybe finds something for themselves too. Also this could probably be posted in Music Mania but I don't want to pollute other sections, this blog is called unwanted opinions trademark sign for a reason.

Day 1: Kanye West - Guilt Trip // One of Ye's most underrated songs and quite possibly top 5 in his entire discography for me. Immaculate production and the mysterious, heavily edited yet enticing chorus are what grabbed my attention at first and after 4 years I still find them just as thrilling and exciting.

Day 2: Prince - Lovesexy (starts at 25:14 because he's extra and "artistic vision!!1") // Despite not being hailed as a masterpiece quite as much as Purple Rain or Sign o' the Times, Lovesexy is just as good as its predecessors. It's Prince at the end of his creativity peak and he ended it with a bang - a record that's fun, carefree, sensual but also varied and ambitious. Its title track embodies all that - and more - in a perfect way.

Day 3: Kelela - LMK // The entire album is great (stream here or, even better, buy there) but nothing has quite topped this for me, def top 10 songs of the year material.

Day 4: (BP) Rania - Style // Classy... sexy... crazy COUTURE...

Day 5: St. Vincent - Los Ageless // Her album is sahfjajas amazing and while the closer is probably currently my favourite, I just cannot stop replaying this pre-release single.

Day 6: Grizzly Bear - Morning Sound // Can't think of anything to say but I really love this sing xoxo.

Day 7: The National - Abel // As much as I like their recent album, it doesn't have a song which would live up to their greatest achievements, such as this one.

Day 8: Taemin - Move // At first listen this came off as really stale and uninteresting to me but started working in the context of the more laid back, subtle album. Unlike a lot of his previous songs, whether solo or as a part of SHINee, it doesn't pop off instantly and instead creeps up on the listener more with each repetiton of the chorus.

Day 9: DIA - My Friend's Boyfriend // After Eunice threw the first brick at Stonewall, she rode her minion to the studio to record this LGBT anthem, quite a productive day for her, I'd say.

Day 10: A.C.E - Callin' // This is esentially the exact same song as their last comeback Cactus, only this time they actually had some budget for the music video and didn't do a gaybait. Normally I'd be mad but Cactus was such an excellent track that for once I don't mind it.

Day 11: Beck - Colors // Although I've never really cared too much for Beck, this album was quite disappointing for me, especially considering how strong this opening track is. Nothing else managed to live up to it, unfortunately.

Day 12: Queens of the Stone Age - If I Had a Tail // I was reserving this spot for Jessie Ware but having heard her poor excuse of an album, I'm not even gonna entertain the idea of giving it more attention. This was somehow the first song which came to my mind otherwise and whew, it still goes off.

Day 13: Junho - Instant Love // How he managed to make Sana not annoying here, I will never know. The album version with additional verse is better btw but the video just has such a gorgeous aesthetic and therefore I'm linking this.

Day 14: Robert Plant - Heaven Sent // Something about is just really moody and atmospheric and I'm really feeling it right now.

Day 15: Epik High - Love Story // I'm kind of in awe that with all odds stacked against them (a k hip hop release under YG Entertainment? you could just ask to get punched in the face) Epik High managed to come up with one of the better Korean albums I've listened to this year. This was my fave, a really lovely song, even if carried mostly by IU's mellow vocal performance.

I will agree that Drunk and Hot Girls is very bad, but it still has Champion, Can't Tell Me Nothing, Flashing Lights, and one of his best songs aka Homecoming um2

Flashing Lights is good, Homecoming is... passable though anything Chris Martin-related makes me want to jump off a bridge these days and I don't remember the other two.

I think Yeezus will be more appreciated within like ten years? It's such an outstanding piece of work, everybody will look up to it like people are crediting now 808s when they talk about albums that influenced them (it was actually quite panned back in the day).

 

And yes, Kelelegend FUCKING DID THAT. Take Me Apart (song) is so damn good giveup1 Arcasus came through with production on this album, holy shit.

Like I said in her album thread: 1-2-3-4-5-6 punch from Waiting to LMK is P H E N O M E N A L

I was sure I replied to this already but I'm also a dumb bitch with about two remaining brain cells so. Anywho, Yeezus was decently acclaimed by the press but I agree that people might need time to fully appreciate it, despite it being the most instant of all his albums to me, it definitely seems like one which only reveals all of its greatness after a while.

And tea @ Kelela obvs, she improves so much with each release, it's amazing.

I understand your confusion, after all they did name themselves after the influential icon.

Not as enthusiastic but it's def a good song, wish the album was more of that

and less of what it actually is.

haven't gotten crazy over lmk but frontline omg, and los ageless is flawless ofc

praying-540894e3510b9.gif

Frontline is good but probably in the bottom half of the album for me and I swear I'm not just saying that 'cause you like it.

I think this is about the second time we've ever agreed, it's a feeling I'm unfamiliar with.

It is a good feeling because you just know something is objectively good.
