This month’s mixtape is brought to you by the 2017 AMAs. There wasn’t anything this month that I love-loved (with the exception of Epik High’s latest album, maybe) and I, having not really listened to Top 40 radio in the past few months, had hoped that the AMAs last night would inspire some new favorites. I kinda liked “Find You” (thank goodness for handsome, brooding white boys in leather jackets, amirite?), and the stripped down version of “Stay” was good, but that was pretty much it. Then again, “Likey” is on this list, so maybe I shouldn’t be pretending like I have any discernible taste in music.
Back to Epik High’s We’ve Done Something Wonderful, though. Good stuff. I have so many feelings about “Home is Far Away” but haven’t found the right words for it yet. It’s one of those songs that makes you feel the pain of an entire people, I think. It makes my heart cry.
Lots to say about BTS’ performance-slash-“American debut”, so I’ll save that for its own post.
Happy Thanksgiving, y’all! Only a few more weeks left in 2017. Let’s try not to eff it up any more than we already have, yeah?
