I enjoy Spotify’s usually spot-on Daily Mixes or Song Radio playlists, but thought I’d share some recent playlists I’ve added or followed:
Links to some of the above playlists:
- Jiwang Songs Zaman Sekolah (late 90s-early 00s edition)
Singer Zee Avi tweeted about creating a public collaborative playlist, which anyone could add to! Loved that. But yes, it means it will sometimes get tampered with…
- Asianjunkie (2021 EOY List)
I was following Asian Junkie’s Best Of 2021 lists, and the reader potatobffs had compiled the songs together into a playlist. I followed this list before Asian Junkie’s “official” playlist came out.
- Sleep Lofi Beats 2022 (Anime)
One of a few anime or game-related “lofi beats” playlists that helped me focus on work. This one specifically is made up cover tracks by self-described “lofi hip hop artist” Kato.
I am also a little obsessed with Moonbyul’s “Shutdown” (feat. Seori), not just because it’s so smooth, but because of what it’s about. Moonbyul! If there’s something you need to say, the Moos are here to listen…
My brain was also, like everyone else’s, hijacked by the Encanto soundtrack. My favourite was actually “Surface Pressure”, but of course the song that’s in my head the most is the one with these lines:
Not a cloud in the sky!
(No clouds allowed in the sky)
– “We Don’t Talk About Bruno”
And what’s the story with this Malay version of the song? It seems semi-official and it is such a good translation.
Surprise! For the last week of January, I decided to try out a daily blogging prompt from WordPress itself.
I wasn’t doing badly by writing two days in a row, but life happens. So this has been posted a few days late. I also remembered that blogging isn’t limited to writing and reflecting, so enjoy the screenshots and the links 🙂
