What We’re Listening to This Week (July 15th, 2019 Edition)

There’s always new music to discover, and this week has been pretty kind to us~

Once again, Blackpink in your area blog post. L’s birthday is coming up, and so a year closer to death, she’s hoping that she can somehow remain forever young. That probably won’t happen, but at least she’ll still have this song and dance practice. 😛

Ed Sheeran and love songs, name me a more iconic duo. Wait, this isn’t a love song at all! Well, not in the most traditional sense, anyway. But even if you’re not an Ed Sheeran fan, this video is just so creative and trippy that it’s pretty entertaining on its own.

If we devoted ourselves to dancing instead of blogging about yuri, we’d be just as good as the dancers in this video. Really! 😛

Anyway, this was one of those times when you discover something and you’re like “What the hell is this? Wait, this is actually… good.”

How can you go wrong with the lovely Camila Cabello? That’s right, you can’t. As is often the case, this is another bop from her, and she just keeps cranking them out. Oh, and Mark Ronson is also there, but who really cares, it’s Camila Cabello! 😀

The funny thing about the inclusion of this song is that this was one of Lena’s choices. Years ago, she HATED Kpop with a passion, and now, she’s watching gay Blackpink videos in VR. Oh how the times have changed! 😀

Wonder Girls were a pretty great girl group, but perhaps the best part of the group all along was Sunmi. We here at YR are at differing opinions about which song from her we like most. This one is Lena’s (she really likes this choreography), while RTV goes for Heroine. Either way, Sunmi is one of the best~

Yoste made an appearance on this series last week, and lo and behold, here he is again. It was a tough choice between this song and Chihiro, but at the end of the day, we went with this dreamy little number, and we don’t regret it one bit~

  1. Dark Chandelier – Anna Tivel from the album Small Believer, they’re all good songs but I especially like the narrative of this one.


    • As weird as it sounds, to me, the narrative is too strong with that one. Like, this feels like it could be a short story or something similar, and it lacks the traditional song structure that you’ll find in most popular songs nowadays. I need a catchy hook or a repeating chorus or something, so even though this tells a better story than nearly everything you’d find on the radio, it’s missing the “song-iness” for me. 😀
