Mellow Monday! Jay Park – V

Hey everyone,

Sorry for the super delayed post. I’ve been quite ill and just focusing a lot on work so I haven’t had much time to do anything.

But I’ve decided to take some time to really focus on the things I love and want to do, and this is one of them! I know it doesn’t seem like it, considering I’m constantly flitting in and out of posting. But I really love producing content for others to read and discuss. There are going to be a few new posts coming up over the next few weeks, one namely the finance update for my year of development, also some practices I’ve taken up in my spare time.

But! Back to the post at hand, the Mellow Monday! Today’s song of choice is V by Jay Park. I recently watched the YouTube docuseries about Jay Park and it really let people see Jay as a human and someone who really works hard in his career. It really outlined his struggles as an Asian American in both the American and Asian markets, and all the feats he has accomplished over this time. It also has a lot of wise words from some notable artist like Dumbfoundead, Far East Movement, Dok2, Simon Dominic, and Loco to name a few. It’s a sure fire watch for anyone interested, so I definitely suggest checking it out.

The song V for me is just a really feel good song and puts me in a good mood every time I listen to it – it gives me real summer vibes! Plus the 1 Million dance cover was immaculate, YooJung Lee and KooSung Jung did such a good job with it.

I’ll end this post now, and I’ll leave a link below for the docuseries’ trailer. I’ll post at some point this week.

Happy Bank holiday for readers in the UK, and have great weeks everyone x

Mellow Mondays! Everybody Wants to Rule the World – Tears For Fears

This has always been a gem in my books – I’ve always been a massive fan of 80s music. I’m quite lucky because this is on work’s store playlist so get to listen to it almost every day – in full I have to add. I don’t seem to get sick of it; maybe it’s me but yeah – I’m trying not to ramble.

I love the meaning behind this song, and how it is often missed because of the beat. I get lost on the internet most evenings for hours, researching song meanings and how songs are connected or sampled between artists.

Recently, I was told I have an interesting and extensive knowledge of music. I mean I think everyone at work hates the fact I can name song title and artist to almost every song that plays at work, and my dad find’s it funny when we watch ‘Guess that song’ videos – He’s impressed at the fact I can name most songs after the first second.

I’m tangenting again, but enjoy!

Mellow Mondays! Lovers’ Carvings – Bibio

Only a short post today because I am shattered from work. I love this song a lot, and it is one of the main reasons I bought a kindle all those years ago – Sad I know, but I practically begged my dad to get me one. I love the fact that the song in itself is two individual tracks smooshed together, but I love both halves – the mellow feel of the first part and the upbeat rhythm in the second half.

Will update soon – I say ‘soon’ but my schedule is ram packed, plus I have an assignment due that I haven’t even glanced at.

Mellow Monday! Wake Up Alone – Amy Winehouse

This is one of my favourite Amy Winehouse songs. It’s very vocal on the isolation and loneliness after a heartbreak.

There isn’t really much to say after the point, so just enjoy.

Update guys, by the time this post is up, I would have quit smoking – let’s hope this isn’t another bullshit thing i say and go back on.

Blog soon.

Mellow Monday! Haru – Royal Pirates

Royal Pirates have always been that key K-Indie band for me – Such silky vocals on very sultry backing tracks.

Their whole discography is a dream to listen to.

I’ll also link below an acoustic version os Betting Everything as it is my other favourite song by them.

Enjoy and hopefully I will blog properly soon, I’ve got a tonne of posts scheduled but they are all very short and quick.

I’ll write soon.

Eli.
