    20. High Valley - Single man

    fallout fun facts

    A nice country song to start the countdown with! High Valley actualy suddenly followed me on twitter a few years ago, so i checked them out. Ever since them i kept an eye on them, which i how i found this one!



    19. Dreamcatcher - Piri



    Dreamcatcher is not a typical kpop group, their style is a bit more different. I like their rock influenced concept, and this song bangs!

    18. Joci Papai - Az En Apam



    Sadly it didn’t make the final at this years Eurovision, but it was actualy one of my favorites! Joci has such an emotional voice that draws you in, not many artists can do this!



    17. Hunter Hayes -Heartbreak




    Another country song! The story Hunter tells here is realy nice, i love the positive way he looks at heartbreak and love here!

    Oh what a lovely idea for a thread!

    I love "Single Man". Thanks for introducing it to me.

    Hungary's entry wasn't that strong this year (imo) but Joci had a stunning performance. I thought that he would qualify easily. It was shocking to see Hungary not making the final.

    16. Katy Perry - Never Realy Over



    Such a good track by Katy! I love the fast paced part in the chorus! I liked it better then her previous singles like Bon Appetit.




    15. Tesky Brothers - Pain And Misery



    Fun fact is that i found this in a newspaper! They were reviewing their album, so i went to take a listen. I realy like this song, with the trumpets! Also the voice of the singer is realy good!

    13. Chung Ha – Gotta Go



    She used to be a part of a group, and now has a succesful solo carreer! This is her second solo single, and i like it alot, also the story the song tells!

    Teskey Brothers is something I do know. They do have that bluesy charm mixed with a very charismatic vocal, enjoyable and (to a certain degree) relaxing music.

    Cute message on Hunter Hayes's "Heartbreak" indeed. Decent song.
    Do we settle for the world as it is, or do we work for the world as it should be?

    Glad you like them, charismatic vocal indeed, i love it, i have a weak spot for recognizable (unusual) voices!

    12. Mahmood –Soldi



    Mahmood was my favorite this year, i’m so glad he came second! Also the lyrics of this are realy touching, and i admire him for that! One of my favorite artists discovered this year for sure!




    11. Bruce Springsteen – Hello Sunshine



    My family are big Springsteen fans, so ofcourse this is in my playlist! Bruce is a legend, i have so much respect for him for being in the industry for so long! Yet another good song by him!

    10. Ikon - I'm Ok



    Sadly the last single by Ikon as we knew it. Hanbin, the leader and one of the rappers, left the group. I always liked their comebacks, and i hope the group can survive without him, and he can still recover from being kicked out by the management.



    09. Avi Kaplan - Change On The Rise




    Avi used to be part of Pentatonix. He now releases his own music, and i found this song becouse it was in my youtube recomandations. I liked it on first listen, he has an amazing voice!

    08. Hwasa - Twit



    Hwasa made her solo debut this year, eventhough she has been a part of Mamamoo for a few years already. I realy love Twit, and the lyrics are realy interesting, please take a look into it if you have time! Hwasa looks stunning as always in the video.



    07. Yola - Faraway Look



    Yola has such an amazing voice, and i love the transitions in the verses of this song! The lyrics are mysterious. Her whole album is actualy a good recomendation to listen!

    6. Morgan Wallen - Whiskey Glasses



    I found this song on spotify, and i put it in my own playlist. It has gotten alot of streams since then! This country song may be typicial, but it has a nice twist.



    5. Danny Vera - Rollercoaster



    Danny Vera has an amazing voice! He’s known in the Netherlands by playing in one of the popular tv shows here, where he also played this beautiful song.

    4. BTS - Dionysus



    This performance is epic! The first time i heard this song i immediately loved it,it reminded me of older BTS. Jin doing the high note is everything! Also the clever writing is something to be admired.



    3. Mamamoo - My Star



    Mamamoo is my favorite girgroup, and i realy loved their White Wind comeback! ‘My Star’ is my favorite from their mini-album, and i love the chorus, and high notes at the end!

    OoOh, quite a few unfamiliar songs (and artists) here, but it's great to see so much K-pop representation! Admittedly, I've been neglecting the genre a bit in 2019 but I've had a handful of major K-pop smashes on my chart in the past: GOT7's "딱 좋아 (Just Right)," VIXX's "다이너마이트 (Dynamite)," TWICE's "Knock Knock," Red Velvet's "러시안 룰렛 (Russian Roulette)," and more. There's so many groups - and they release new material so often - it's tough to keep up! Like you mentioned, the quality of their performances is often unreal. I might be off-base here, but on first listen, I'm getting some cool retro-soul/doo-wop vibes from Gaho's "Then."

    "Never Really Over" is the biggest highlight for me <3 I did enjoy some of Witness, but this is my favorite single from Katy in a while (and really shows that she doesn't need Dr. Luke to make incredibly infectious pop) The fast-paced part in particular is ridiculously catchy!

    They are showing some BTS content on my city's cinema. Not my cup of tea but it's listenable, for sure. Mamamoo sounds better, in my opinion, love the pulsating beat and the pre-chorus. Great productiion.

    Thanks for stopping by! Yes, the kpop world moves quickly, theres always new comebacks and new groups debuting, i agree it's hard to keep up, but it's exciting as well as there is always something to look foreward too! "Then" gives me also doo-wop vibes!

    I also agree that this is Katy's best release in a while, the fast paced chorus is the best!

    Glad you're enjoying Mamamoo sweetie! I actualy came second place with their song Egotistic on the fsc here! I'd also reccomend Starry Night, the aestethics are beautiful! Regarding BTS it depends on which songs, since they have alot of variety in their discography!
