And August has ended – just like that! We’re finally entering the “-Ber months” and it means 2 things in the Philippines: one, the traffic will go from bad to worse because of the early Christmas sale and shopping madness; two, Jose Marie Chan will be all over the malls and parks. If you’re curious to know about his songs, you can check this Spotify playlist.
This month’s music suggestion, brought to you by Spotify and Spotify Premium, will feature artists you probably have never heard of. This is my way of reminding myself that there’s more to life than listening to my usual pop songs. Don’t get me wrong – I love pop songs and listening to one makes me happy instantly, but it’s about time I step out of my comfort zone and continue discovering new artists and songs to listen to. If you’d notice from my August music suggestion, most of the songs I’ve included were a little slow and soft. I don’t know, but it reminds me of the time when R&B was such a hit in 2000s.
Here’s the line-up of songs for your reference:
- Diddy Bop (feat. Cam O’bi & Raury) – Noname, Cam O’bi, Raury
- Inner Child – SATICA
- B.O.M.D. – Clairo, Danny L Harle
- Rebound – Brian Puspos
- I Know The Answer – Rendy Pandugo
- Your Eyes (feat. Jay Park) – Hoody, Jay Park
- Mornings – RICEWINE
- 4EVER – Clairo
- Dead To Me – Kali Uchis
- Poolside Manor – 88rising, AUGUST 08, NIKI
- Like You – Hoody
- Perfume – Roy Blair
- April – Mondo Gascaro
- Easy – Mac Ayres
- Best Part (feat. H.E.R.) – Daniel Caesar, H.E.R.
- Grey Luh – Berhana
- Hunchback – Sobs
- Flaming Hot Cheetos – Clairo
- Sunflower – Rex Orange County
Out of the line-up this month, my favourite song to listen to would be Easy by Mac Ayres. The song reminds me of how easy it is to love somebody. Loving should never be complicated, although sometimes what we feel towards another person is something words could never define. With its slow beat, my mood can turn from frantic to calm in no time.
20 songs. 1 hour and 6 minutes total run time. I don’t know what can go wrong whilst listening to another chill playlist. I also want to know your thoughts after listening to the playlist and you can do so by posting comments or directly sending a message to me – would appreciate all of these to help me improve! X
