A while ago I wrote a list of my favourite Girls’ Generation songs so I decided to write a list of my favourite BTS ones as well! Here goes nothing!
10. Save Me
I didn’t appreciate this song enough when it first came out, I loved ‘Fire’ so much that this song felt like a bit of a let-down. It did grow on me though and now I love it! I just wish I’d appreciated it more when I saw them perform it at ‘K-Con Paris’ because it’s a great song with such cool choreography. It’s not my favourite but I appreciate it a lot more than I used to!
This was the second song I’d ever heard by them and at the time I hadn’t listened to an awful lot of K-Pop, I was a fan of girl groups but I didn’t really listen to any boy groups. This is ridiculous but I remember listening to this and being like ‘this song is so aggressive’? I don’t know why ‘cos it’s not aggressive at all but that was my first impression of the song. A few more listens and I ended up loving it, that song is honestly iconic let’s be real.
8. No More Dream
Although it sounds completely different to the songs they release now there’s something I love about BTS’ debut song. I think it’s because me and my friend learnt the chorus’ choreography so the song grew on me the more I learnt it. I’m low-key glad they changed their image because their music’s a lot better now but it’s still a great debut song.
7. Fun Boys
This used to be my favourite song by them but I listened to it one too many times and it’s slowly slid down the list. I can’t remember who made me listen to this song or anything but at the time of ‘K-Con Paris’ it was my favourite song and I remember complaining to my friends “I really, really want them to do Fun Boys but I know they won’t.” BTS got to the end of their set and Rap Monster announced “Okay we’re gonna do our last song now.” So I was like ‘okay it’ll be War of Hormone’ BUT NOPE IT WAS FUN BOYS. I’m so glad I got to see it live – I did record the whole thing but when I listened to it back all you could hear was me like there was no BTS just me attempting to scream the lyrics in broken Korean. I deleted the video.
6. Lie (Jimin solo)
This is a bit of a cheat but I love this song so much oh my god. I’m pretty sure I asked my friends if they’d listened to a comeback by a different group and Becca was like “NOPE I’VE HAD PARK JIMIN’S SOLO ON REPEAT SINCE IT WAS DROPPED” so I decided to give it a listen and oh my god. Jimin’s not even my bias but it was definitely my favourite solo song from Wings. I love J-Hope’s ‘Mama’ and Suga’s ‘First Love’ but ‘Lie’ has to take it. Why couldn’t they have come to Europe with their Wings tour, I’d have loved to have seen it live!
5. I Need U
This is another song they did at ‘K-Con Paris’ (sorry to keep going on about it but like it was one of the best concerts ever) and I love this song so much. Everything about it. There’s nothing I don’t love about it. It’s not usually my kind of thing but for some reason I just really like it. I love ‘Run’ as well but not quite as much as ‘I Need U’.
Usually I hate slow songs so I wouldn’t have bothered listening to this but Jess told me if she ever passed away she’d want it played at her funeral. For a while every time I listened to it I ended up feeling really sad because I remembered what she said and I’d end up thinking about what it would be like if she did die and yeah, it used to depress the hell out of me. Luckily I can listen to it now without thinking about the death of one of my best friends and I love this song. Slow songs need to be interesting otherwise I get bored very quickly but this one keeps my interest and I love it.
3. Not Today
I think I already posted that I’d been disappointed with ‘Spring Day’ when it was released because even though I love it now I thought it was a bit slow and boring at the time. I was so happy when ‘Not Today’ was released because it’s so much more my style of music. I included this song in my running playlist because it really motivates me. So if you need any motivation, listen to this song and I guarantee you will have some!
I keep talking about ‘K-Con Paris’ but really that concert is what made me love them. I remember they dropped this comeback and I didn’t particularly care much about BTS at the time so I only listened to this once we’d got the tickets for K-Con. I loved it at first listen, it’s so lit and I had it on repeat for ages. I filmed them singing this at K-Con but I had to delete that as well because again, all you could hear was me yelling “FIIIIIIIIIIIIRE!” Horrendous. But this song is honestly amazing, I don’t care what anyone says.
1. Mic Drop
I remember mentioning in a previous post that after ‘DNA’ was released I was a bit worried that I was going off BTS. Then I listened to ‘Mic Drop’ after seeing a few people rave about it. It was then that I realised I was still complete and utter BTS trash. This song is amazing. I like the remix too but the original is heaps better. If BTS ever finally announce their Europe tour I really hope they perform this because at the moment it’s my favourite song by them and there’s not a thing about it that I don’t love.
So there you go, there’s my top ten favourite BTS songs! Leave me a comment with your top favourites.
