THIS WAS ABSOLUTE HELL.
Not because I don’t connect to a lot of songs, but because I'm a picky little booger and I wanted to choose songs where the lyrics could help narrate my life or how I'm feeling. A lot of songs are depressing or creepy as hell ( which I am sure sounds worse in English because translation, don't get me wrong ) and this took me almost 3 hours to get through.
THANKS FOR THE TORTURE.

#3) GOT7 - JUST RIGHT
I had a hell of a time trying to decide on my songs, that was for sure.
I love a lot but I didn't want all of them being about love and didn't want them being depressing - so out of my three, Just Right landed in the last spot.
I LOVE THE MESSAGE.
It may not be expressed as well as it could be, especially since this targets females and not all genders, but what're you gonna do?
"You can’t find a flaw that doesn’t even exist. You shine so brightly, so perfect in every way. To me you’re so beautiful I want you Just the way you are, you’re the only one."
Girls have doubts. We second guess ourselves; what we wear, what we say, how we look. We are harsh on ourselves ( and so are men, too ) and this song does a nice job of smoothing it over. The lyrics speak about how a girl is upset with how she looks but she shouldn't be because she is beautiful anyways; they see no flaws.
She is JUST RIGHT.
#2) GIRIBOY, SOYOU, KIHYUN - PILLOW
I have been in a beautiful relationship for almost 10 months now ( though I have known him and dated him off and on for various reasons for 5 years ) and it seems I'm always catching a cold or having a headache. Why is that important? I will show you.
"When you caress me when I’m too busy, When you hug me when I’m too sick, I want to keep pretending to be sick; I can’t get better. You’re laying in my arms, It can’t get better than this. I’ll lean on you and rest for a moment, I was so busy today, it was hard. If you’re here, it’s like medicine Because you’re my love, my everything."
I relate to the simplicity of this song and it's simplistic but fulfilling relationship in the story. My beau brings me hot chocolate and candy and soup when I don't feel good, gives me cold packs for my migraines, and allows me to take care of him in exactly the same way.
IT'S SAPPY I KNOW.
But that is why I love this song.
BONUS: Giriboy is one of my favorite artists.
#1) RAP MONSTER - ADRIFT
This song has a DEEP deep place in my heart. I used to fall asleep to this every night until Tao ruined me with Imperial Crown and Ryeowook with The Little Prince ( now I alternate between my lullaby songs~ ) bUT THAT IS BESIDES THE POINT. I chose this because like Namjoon, this is a testament to my self reflection. He puts into a song what I feel and how I cope with the ever-changing waters of life. And I know I'm not the only one out at sea weathering storms after storms with little days of unbearable sunshine between.
"I don’t know whether I’ve lost the way Or whether from the beginning I was lost, Even when I’m with someone, One corner of my heart is lonely."
And I think it's easy to relate for many people. Especially me, who is so introverted and anxious half the time that even being with friends and being with loved ones still does not complete me in a way that it should.
And it'll make you feel lost.
It'll make you feel neglected.
"Where is my meaning? Where is my heart? In this vast universe, I’m endlessly adrift, I’m endlessly adrift."
We are all searching for our purpose and what makes us happy. And until we find that one thing or that one person, we drift out at sea.
#0) JAY PARK - WHAT WE DO
THIS ONE is for my wife @ChelseaJay because of obvious reasons. It's not kpop but Jay sings it so I'm not gonna budge on it. She knows exactly why I chose it.
/ blows u a kiss /
Hit me up on kakao bby gurl.
WARNING: SEXUAL CONTENT.
I'M OKAY I PROMISE.
I kind of made myself sad with that last one.
I'd say THANKS OBAMA but it was Namjoon's fault so THANKS, NAMJOON. I hate how I feel so deeply for music but I would never have it any other way.
TAG ME IN YOUR CARDS!
If you do this challenge, it helps others learn more about you. And that is always super cool to see. They say when someone tells you their favorite song, listen to it closely. More than likely a piece of who they are is embedded in the music.
