BAYOG Playlist|Spring Vibes

BAYOG Playlist|Spring Vibes

Hihi BAYOG Fam!~ It’s been a while… I apologize for not being as active. Been dealing with stuffs…lulz… Anyway, I was in a mood to make a spring playlist. I enjoy making playlists because it helps me destress?? “Minty…it’s almost fucking summer…” I know! I originally meant to do this much earlier…but I’ve just been busy… Anyways, I just wanted to share some songs I enjoy that remind me of spring.

From the live action adaptation of Let Me Eat Your Pancreas

To me Spring can be light, bright, colorful, and airy. When I think of spring I think of flowers, new beginnings. change, cherry blossoms, the blossoming of new emotions and relationships, sweet things, etc. I also just love to sit in cafes and take it easy. So here’s my playlist that fits all the above! We’ve got happy stuff, fun stuff, and not so happy stuffs. As y’all know, I love a variety of different genres. Although, I tend to gravitate more towards pop and R&B during this time of year~ I like more easy going songs that fit a cafe vibe for Spring~ But I hope you enjoy these songs, and who knows…maybe you’ll find a new song or artist that you’ll like! What are your favorite things about Spring? What comes to mind when you think of Spring?~ What songs give you Spring Vibes?~

ALL THE FLOWERS, COLORS, AND LOVE FAM~

I’ll only list a couple of my favorites here. It’s still alot, I know… However, I do have a ton more songs on my Spotify Playlist! Yes, I’m the type of person to put hundreds and hundreds of songs in one playlist. I’m that kind of person that will constantly listen to music the whole day. I like having a variety and never knowing which song will come up next~ Anyways, here’s my Spotify Playlist!

페노메코 PENOMECO| 영화 한 편 찍자 (Movie)

The song title literally translates to, “Let’s Film a Movie”. This song just came out a few days ago, and it’s already one of my favorite tracks. Penomeco is most known for appearing on the rap competition Show Me the Money. He’s also known for working on EXO’s “Tempo“. You can watch Penomeco perform his version [HERE]. Most importantly, he’s a part of [Fanxy Child]; A R&B/Hip-Hop crew that includes my baes Dean and Crush. It also includes Zico (formerly of Block B), and Millic. So it’s nice to see him release a track that showcases just his sweet vocals. I feel like it fits so well with spring. I love that the song is simple, as in the instrumental is very simple. It starts off with a simple guitar riff and Penomeco’s vocals. As the song progresses, little things get added in there. Still, it’s very simple and very chill. I love these kinds of tracks~ The song is beautifully sweet song. I interpreted it as when you love someone and find them so precious, that you’d want to film each moment with them.

Sadly, the music video is actually pretty sad. It’s basically a bunch of friends shooting a movie together. The girl seems to have an illness, and so they’re trying to fulfill her last wishes and help her live her potential life through this movie…. (ಥ﹏ಥ)

윤하 Younha|녹을지 몰라요

This next song is by Younha! You may remember her for singing “ほうき星/Houki Boshi“, or “Comet”. It was one of the songs from the Bleach anime. She’s one of my favorite Korean singers. She’s really underrated… I also absolutely love her collabs with Epik High (more on that later). Anyways, this song basically translates to “It Will Melt”. It’s a very sweet and almost whimsical sounding song. It’s accompanied with Younha’s clear and sweet vocals. It’s literally a sweet love song about having someone on your mind, and they seem to make you melt. I think it’s a perfect song for transitioning from the cold winter to a warmer spring where love may blossom~

에릭남 & 치즈 Eric Nam & CHEEZE|Perhaps Love (사랑인가요)

This next song is actually a remake of “Perhaps Love (사랑인가요)” by HowL & J. The original song was from the 궁/Goong (“Palace”), or “Princess Hours”, drama OST. Again, it’s a wonderful song describing when you start to feel something like love. Eric and CHEEZE’s version is much more mellow and sweeter sounding. I really love it and find this version fits perfectly with the whole spring vibe.

2morro| The Love Inside

This was actually the soundtrack for the K-Drama The Beauty Inside. It was a fantastic drama, and one I’ll be posting about when I have time. It’s a sweet and upbeat love song~ It’s about awkwardly and unexpectedly finding yourself in love, but ready to dive right into everything. There’s actually two other versions of the song as well. There’s a [duet version] with a male singer named Vincent. My favorite version was a very slowed down acoustic version that appeared throughout the series. Sadly, I don’t think that version is out on the OST…

PERC%NT|Petal Fortune(꽃잎점) (LISTEN 024)

This is a sweet and chill song. I absolutely love PERC%NT’s sweet and soothing vocals. This is one of my favorite R&B tracks lately. In this song, he sings about how the girl he loves and cares for is always down and crying. It plays a story of always being there for her, watching over her from a distance, and wanting her to be happy. He also kind of confesses to her, saying that she’s the most important person to him.

체리비 Cherry B| Lovin’ U (러빙유)

This is a sweet pop/indie with a bit of R&B kind of track. I love Cherry B’s sweet vocals and the guitar. I especially love how she sings “Because of you I’m feeling up and down~ You~” and “I’m lovin’ you~” I love this kind of singing style alot. I love that her vocals really have some soul to it. I think we can all relate to this song too. It’s basically how you feel the butterflies cuz of someone, feeling the ups and downs, feeling really awkward, sometimes you end up acting really awkward, but you know you really feel something for this person. It’s got a really sweet feeling to it, and I think it perfectly captures the sweetness and awkwardness of realizing when you love someone.

offonoff| Photograph

This is also one of my all time favorite K-R&B tracks. It’s a very soft and chill track with some airy vibes from offonoff. offonoff was a project group consisting of producer 0channel and singer Colde. I love Colde’s smooth Both are also members of the Club Eskimo crew. Club Eskimo is a K-R&B/Hip-Hop crew consisting of Dean, Crush, Millic, Punchnello, Jusen, Camper, Chek Parren, and 2xxx. I believe Miso is also in it. I love Colde’s smooth vocals.This song is about the things and people experience. How we should slow down and remember the moment. This track is one of my absolute favorites, and I love listening to this to help me sleep too. I don’t know about you guys, but I love closing my eyes to visualize a scene or story when I listen to music. With this one, I imagine beautiful day in a park with spring showers.

콜드 Feat. 크러쉬 Colde Feat. Crush| Your Dog Loves You

So we just talked about offonoff. Here’s a song by Colde. Yes, it’s called, “Your Dog Loves You”. Yes, there are hella cute puppies!~ This is another very chill and laid back song with Colde’s smooth and relaxing vocals. He actually wrote this song thinking about his dog. The lyrics are meant to be from the dog’s perspective. Sure, spring can be about love. However, it doesn’t have to mean romantic love. There’s all kinds of love around us. I think this is a perfect song that fits a relaxing spring day with someone we care about. It’s about the simple moments that we spend together.

Junggigo(정기고) Feat. Hoody| IWST(말하자면) (Prod. Primary)

Junggigo is one of my favorite K-R&B artists. I adore his soulful vocals, and I’ve always love every one of his collabs from [Epik High], SoYou, and my [K-R&B Kings Dean, Crush, and Zion.T]. This track is called “IWST”, or “I Wanna Say That”. It’s also produced by Primary, who makes fantastic tracks. It also features Hoody. Hoody has fantastic vocals and is known for her collabs with Jay Park (She is under his company after all). This is the sweet confession song. You know, when you’re having a hard time getting those words out. Still, you really want to tell that person that you love them.

마틴스미스 Martin Smith| Paint on Spring (봄 그리고 너)

This is a sweet and more upbeat song. It does exactly as the title states by describing how his love for his girl seems to pain on spring~

소유 & 정기고 Feat. 긱스 릴보이 SoYou & Junggio Feat. Lil Boi (Geeks)|썸(Some)

This one is a throwback. It’s another track with Junggigo. This is a collab between Junggigo and SoYou (formerly of SISTAR). It also features Lil Boi from Geeks. This song was incredibly popular when it came out. 썸(Some) is a Konglish term that refers to when there’s “something” going on between two people. The relationship you have is more than friends…you both seem to be interested in each other or feel something…but you’re not quite lovers. Anyways, yeah, this song is about that confusing status. Raise your hand if you’d been in a 썸(Some) (。Ő▽Ő。)ノ゙

샘김 Sam Kim Feat. Zico| It’s You

This is one of my favorite tracks lately. I adore Sam Kim’s smooth and soothing vocals. It’s a smooth and chill track. This song is also about wondering how the other feels about you. You’re awkward, and you think you’re getting signals from the other person…but you don’t know. You can’t stop thinking about this person, the things they do, whether maybe they like you, and just what are you going to do about it. This is one of my favorite tracks to listen to at night and helps me sleep too haha.

J.BASS Feat. Jozu| 붙어있자 (Stay With Me)

This is a really chill track. I think it’s a perfect song to listen to during a chill spring night. It’s basically about wanting to do nothing but to stay with the person that you like.

정바스 Feat. 슬로 & 제이형 코앤제이형닮아 J.BASS Feat. Sllo & J Hyung (Tako & J Hyung) |닮아 (Like)

I find this to be another sweet song to listen to when you’re thinking of someone you like. It basically a song about noticing how similar you become to the person that you like. The lyrics include things like how his playlist is full of songs she likes, and how his favorite foods are her favorite foods.

아이유 IU Feat. G-Dragon (BIGBANG)| Palette(팔레트)

This one isn’t really a love song. Well, it’s more like a song about loving yourself. IU is a well known name in K-Pop. She started her singing career when she was about 15, and she’s also known for acting in several different productions like Dream High. G-Dragon and his group BIGBANG are considered legendary acts in K-Pop. They were considered one of the biggest names of the second generation K-Pop idols. Adolescence is a weird phase. We’re all growing still, trying to learn, and just trying to deal with everything. It’s hard navigating through life and trying to become an adult. This song came out with IU was 25, and after dealing with criticisms and hate throughout her career. The MV is beautifully done and really represents the different phases and how she’s grown through her career. It’s a chill track and IU’s sweet vocals sing about learning about, loving, and accepting yourself. Haters gonna hate, but you are who you are. You like what you like. It doesn’t matter how old you are. It’s fine to learn about yourself a little bit at a time. Like a palette, we’re made of different colors, interests, and other things. Let your colors show, and own it~

pH-1| Like Me (Prod.Mokyo)

This R&B/Hip-Hop track is by pH-1. It’s got a really chill R&B instrumental. This song is about being hard to love. pH-1 sings about how he feels worthless; To have nothing and feel like you’re nothing. He sings about he can’t understand why this girl likes him. He wants to know why him and why she likes him. He knows he’s hard to love, and he’s sure he’ll hurt her. Yet she likes him, and still…he can’t stop thinking about her. I think it’s a song that’s perfectly represents something like a cold, winter-like heart could melt in the spring~ Wow…that came out alot cornier than it did in my head…

방탄소년단 BTS| 봄날 (Spring Day)

You guys really should’ve seen this coming… I thought I left the K-Pop hole, but nope… ¯_༼ ಥ ‿ ಥ ༽_/¯
봄날 (Spring Day) is one of my favorite tracks. It’s also one of the tracks that probably secured me getting dragged deeper into the hole… Things get tough and cruel like the cold winter…but we’re all just awaiting that spring day when the snow melts and the cold fades away. Also, I gotta say that the MV is really gorgeous, and looks very cinematic.

자이언티 Feat. 슬기 레드벨벳 Zion.T feat Seulgi (Red Velvet)| 멋지게 인사하는 법 (Hello Tutorial)

Zion.T is one of my other favorite K-R&B singers. Like I said, Dean, Crush, and Zion.T are like my holy trinity for K-R&B. He’s got a really nice, soft, and laid back voice. This song also features the sweet vocals of Seulgi from the popular K-Pop group Red Velvet. “멋지게 인사하는 법”, or “Hello Tutorial”, is a very sweet and chill song. It’s basically about the awkwardness and nervousness of when you first meet someone you’re interested in. You know, when you’re nervous and just kept up fixing your looks in the mirror or practicing what you want to say.

에픽하이 Feat. 윤하 Epik High Feat. Younha|우산 (Umbrella)

Again, Epik High is probably one of my favorite groups of all time. They’re a fantastic group with silly personalities, and their music feels so very poetic and genuine. They’ve collabed with Younha a few times, but ” 우산 (Umbrella) ” is one of my all time favorites. It’s also the song I introduced to Kenny, and how I got him into Epik High~ This is not a bright and happy song. Spring isn’t always about bright and happy love. Sometimes it’s about change, and sometimes it’s not a positive change. When I close my eyes, I feel like this song suits a rainy spring day. This song is old, having been released in 2008, but it’s always a great song. Younha released a solo version of the song in 2014. It’s different from the original, but both versions are great~

宇多田 ヒカル Utada Hikaru| SAKURAドロップス (SAKURA Drops)

We all know how much I love Utada Hikaru. This is a classic from 2002. It’s also one of the first tracks and MVs I remember seeing from her. This somewhat melancholic song is about how there may be heartbreak, but it’s okay. Like the cherry blossoms, love will bloom again.

宇多田 ヒカル Utada Hikaru| 桜流し (Sakura Nagashi)

This is another track from Utada. It’s another melancholic song; Something that Utada (and her mother) are quite known for. The song is about sending off a love that’s ended. The imagery relates to how even the beautiful cherry blossoms eventually scatter away. It’s a bittersweet song. Still, there is hope.

大塚 愛 Otsuka Ai| kit palette「キットカット」

Y’all. I used to love Otsuka Ai. She was one of my favorite J-Pop artists back in the day. I always loved how cute and upbeat her songs were. I eventually did kind become less invested in J-Pop. So I haven’t really heard anything from her in years. I think last I remember, she had announced her pregnancy and that she was going to take a break. So I was so surprised to find this track! “kit palette” is actually a promotional song for Kit-Kat too~ I’m almost sure that it’s for promoting that nuts and cranberry Kit-Kat. I do like that rock guitar riff though. I think this is a great song for when you need to feel kind of pumped and happy in the spring~

Crystal Kay クリスタル・ケイ| サクラ (Sakura)

A track from another J-Pop queen. This song is about remembering a love in the spring with the cherry blossom petals. Time passes, and the seasons change. We start to forget things. However, there are always memories that will always be irreplaceable and unforgettable. The MV also stars Furukawa Yuki from Netflix’s live action drama adaptation of Erased. It also stars Kojima Riria. She’s known for being in the Super Sentai series, as well as Ookami Shoujo to Kuro Ouji (Wolf Girl and Black Prince).

清水 翔太 Shimizu Shota| Love

Shimizu Shota is one of my favorite J-R&B artists. I love his soulful voice. This is an incredibly sweet song, and I definitely can see it as a song played at weddings. In this song Shota sings about seeing the girl he loves cry and be in pain. He croons about holding onto her tightly and promising her forever. He croons about wanting to be with her through everything, the good and the bad. Yeah, definitely a perfect wedding or proposal song~

清水 翔太 Shota Shimizu| I’m in Love

This is another sweet love song from Shota Shimizu. I can imagine this song playing in the background of some drama scene of a couple taking a walk at night, surrounded by cherry blossoms and/or lights~

清水 翔太 Shota Shimizu| I Miss You -Refrain-

This is a beautiful acoustic track. It’s a little bit melancholic. In this song, Shota sings about missing someone. There are alot of people, but he doesn’t want to meet them. All he wants to see is that special person~ Sometimes we’re forced to say goodbye to people, but we still remember them, think fondly of them, and love them.

大塚 愛 Otsuka Ai| さくらんぼ

Here’s another throwback, this time from Otsuka Ai! I’m old, I know…leave me alone… This song is called, “Cherries”. It’s a cute and upbeat song. In this song Ai compares her and her lover to being like cherries. Sometimes love starts off rough, but you end up being really sweet and inseparable.

방탄소년단 BTS| Butterfly

Yes. I did. Spring=Flowers=Butterflies. This is another one of my all time favorite tracks that pulled me back into the K-Pop hole. I love how light and airy it starts off. I also love the guitar too. In the song BTS describes the person they care about as a butterfly. This song is basically about how fragile love can seem, and how we want to be careful and treasure it. There’s also a prologue mix and alternative mix versions of the song. I love every version. I find them all to be just really pretty songs. The highlight reel for the HY albums feature the Prologue Mix. It goes along with BTS’ Save Me webtoon too.

방탄소년단 BTS Feat. Halsey| 작은 것들을 위한 시 (Boy With Luv)

Yes. Again. Only because this is a new song, and one of the most popular songs for spring right now. The title translates to, “A Poem for Small Things (Boy With Luv)”. It’s an upbeat track with some funk-pop to it and features Halsey. Yeah, it’s a pop track. However, it’s got a sweet message in it too. RM stressed how the Korean title is important to convey the intended message of the full song title. Love can be small things, and can be conveyed through little things. It could be something simple like asking someone how their day is, or what makes them happy. We become interested and attracted in the small things like a person’s personality, habits, interests, etc. When we love someone, their scars become our scars. The little things make the big things, and love is the entirety of all that.

투모로우바이투게더 Tomorrow X Together (TXT)|어느날 머리에서 뿔이 자랐다 (CROWN)

TXT is BTS’ new brother group under Big Hit Entertainment. They recently debuted with this song. I believe the title translates to “One Day I Grew Antlers/Horns On My Head (CROWN)”. It’s an upbeat pop track. Love is unexpected and strange, but it’s also magical.
