Why am I so into depressing songs? :S – Top 3 songs for the week ^^~

1 Comment

Hi guys!!! I’ve wanted to start this new segment for a while now. As you already know, my love for music will never die and also, I am really open to discovering new things (especially when it comes to music)! So, this week, I will be sharing with you all the top 3 songs that I have been listening for the entire week, NONSTOP!

The top three songs are (in no particular order):

1. Lắng nghe nước mắt – Mr Siro

I had discovered this song a couple of days ago when I found the video linked above on my Facebook feed. At first I only clicked on it because it was 12 at night and I could’t get to sleep (typical me ><) But, since then I have not stopped playing this song on my iPod, E-VER. By now it should be around about 100-200 counts (I don’t know *shrugs*) but it definitely has become one of the songs I listen to when I need to distress (despite the meaning of the song)

The song by the way (for those who aren’t aware) is in Vietnamese so I don’t even have any idea what the singer is singing about. That is how amazing songs are; you don’t even have to understand it to love it 🙂

The song name translated to English roughly means “Don’t Let Go Of My Hands” (how depressing is that? I am such a sucker for angsty stuff *teardrop*) Below are the translations that I had found randomly somewhere (hopefully they are accurate)

Don’t Let Go Of My Hands

There are days, there are seconds
Immersed in this pain
My heart is hurting, but I still hope
Though I cannot forget
My longing for you increase every night
Am I hoping that
The days will quickly pass by
And I won’t be anymore sad?
There are times when
Your heart is crying
But for some reasons, I did not understand
Because of that, we lost each other

Is it because I asked make the heart
Of the one I love so sad
Trying to find you to tell you
To listen to me…oh
But once the tears fall
With that, the faith is also gone
And I tried to cling to the moments
Of being by your side for the last time…oh

Depressing, aren’t they? I don’t know why I listen to these things. They don’t make me feel happier about myself or anything however I still listen…human nature I guess…

And, on a separate note, CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT THE VIDEO ABOVE IS FANMADE?????! I totally thought that the video was the original MV (Good Job! *thumbs up)

2. Goodbye Summer – f(Amber, Luna and Krystal) feat. D.O. from EXO

Alright, ever since I got the album “Pink Tape”, this song has been on repeat since FOREVER. LOVE LOVE LOVE this song so much. The beautiful vocals from D.O. combined with the peaceful notes made by all three lovely ladies *wink wink* However, once again, I was somehow drawn to it despite it being ANOTHER DEPRESSING SONG. Look at the translations down below:

Goodbye Summer

I remember when we were yelled at for talking in the halls
I don’t know why it was so fun even when we were being punished
After that day (yeah yeah) we always (yeah yeah)
Stuck together like the Astro twins, you were me and I was you

You cried so much on the day before graduation
You held it in firmly since you’re a guy
Just like that hot summer when we couldn’t say what we wanted, goodbye

The friend label is a label that I got to hate
The feelings I’ve hidden still remain as a painful secret memory
The photos that can’t define our relationship is a heartbreaking story
I’m sorry, summer, now goodbye, yeah

What do I say, we didn’t have to play no games
I should’ve took that chance, I should’ve asked for you to stay
And it gets me down the unsaid words that still remain
The story ended without even starting

Your song on the last day of the school festival, the flickering summer sea
Our feelings that were precious because we were together
Like the deepening night sky, goodbye

The friend label is a label that I got to hate
The feelings I’ve hid still remain as a painful secret memory
The photos that can’t define our relationship is a heartbreaking story
I’m sorry, summer, now goodbye, yeah

Baby oh no oh oh
I’m sorry that this is a monologue
Oh, actually, I love you, yeah
If only our long-time hidden secrets were revealed
I would hold you in my arms

The friend label is a label that I got to hate
The feelings I’ve hid still remain as a painful secret memory
The photos that can’t define our relationship is a heartbreaking story
I’m sorry, summer, now goodbye, yeah

The friend label is a label that I got to hate
A heartbreaking story, I’m sorry, summer, now goodbye, yeah

So basically, Summer represents the love that the girl couldn’t confess to her best friend, and she apologises for not being able to have the guts to confess these growing feelings for her best friend. a.k.a A VERY VERY DEPRESSING STORY!

After reading the lyrics, I felt more attached to the song since it reminded me of my past and how I couldn’t also come up the courage to confess to a guy I liked (when I was QUITE young, I have to admit). Now, I am still playing it, nonstop.

No. Regrets.

3. Luv Is (Original Ver.) – Lim Jeong Hee

When Jeong Hee’s “Luv Is” was released last week, this track was also included, and I have been playing the crap out of it. Despite me loving the rap in the other version, it can’t really beat just listening to unni’s voice in its entirety. So peaceful, so calming and once again (I’m assuming anyway) VERY VERY DEPRESSING. Seriously, what is wrong with me?? I just love listening to her, always ❤

Anyway, I hope you all enjoyed this post! If you liked it, like this post and maybe I will consider returning next week with my top songs once again. See you all soon~~
