So I recently decided to update my list of all-time favourite songs, since I haven’t updated the list in a while.
Criteria for my all-time favourite songs:
- I like it (never would have guessed that, hm?)
- I can listen to it for 24 hours on repeat (when listening to music) and not get bored by it (my record lies at 3 days) AND / OR I cannot stop moving/singing to this song no matter what you do to me
That’s all. There isn’t anything else. I don’t make a difference regarding music genre, artists, origin or something like that. Of course a lot of the songs are Korean though, since it is the main kind of music I listen to but there are others too.
So let’s get into it and feel free to check out the songs and watch the videos, I hope you can find some songs to love too.
Except for the last two in the list, no specific order. The last two are the ones that ALWAYS get me.
Taylor Swift (ft. Brendon Urie) – ME!
This song has totally taken over my head. There is no way I can stop this song in any way. It’s on repeat and I love it ^.^ Also while I know I sound awful singing to it, I still just sing full volume. This song is so addicting and both of their voices mix so well together.
Little Mix – Secret Love Song, Pt.II
I didn’t even know it was their song I listened to for some time. I just had this song mix I was listening to and never looked it up until I started listening repeatedly and finally did my research. Well, since then I’ve listened to the song so many times…
(the video is the actual version of the song, I like the just Little Mix version more though)
VIXX – Eternity
VIXX is my favourite K-Pop group, together with Infinite, but compared to Infinite, they have a song on my all-time favourite list. And a big one at that. Expect for the absolute number one (see list below) Eternity holds the best record. Three days only this song and I did not get desperate for anything else.
Celine Dion – My Heart Will Go On
I so don’t want this song to be on this list but tbh it is…I cannot listen to this song for more than 1 hour but I still always, without exception, sing to it. I want to stop…but it’s just sooo hard not to sing. And that from a person who knows she cannot sing for the life of her…
ATEEZ – Pirate King
This song does not really fit into my usual song tastes I thought in the beginning. But then I listened again and again and realised I really like the rhythm in the verses and the melody as well as sounds in the chorus. Normally there is at least one part of the song I don’t like (most of the time the rap part) but with this song, I can’t find it. I love the song so much…and since then I’m also a ATEEZ fan!
ATEEZ – Say My Name
I thought long and hard whether I really want to include two ATEEZ songs on this list since they are my favorite group and that means I’m quite biased but let me be honest, I’ve listened to Say My Name and Pirate King so much that my head can sing it without hearing the actual music so I decided to be honest here. Say My Name kind of cemented my love for ATEEZ and I’ve never been able to go back to my old self since then. I love the song, the dance, the video, the performance…I love everything about it!
Nick Jonas – Introducing Me
Hahahahaha, this song actually comes from the Disney Channel movie Camp Rock but, well, it’s just so fun. And while some people might name it as my guilty pleasure, I’m not embarassed at all to say that I know the lyrics by heart ^.^
Teen Beach Movie Cast – Cruisin’ for a Bruisin’
On the topic of Disney Channel, I have to add another song. This time kind of a guilty pleasure though. This song is great if you have to do house work and with this song you can just put it on full surround sound volume and bruise through the house cleaning ^.^ This one I have never listened to for more than a few hours (cleaning time) but I know I could, also moving and dancing to this song is a choice for me but even if it is a guilty pleasure, jumping around to this one, feels just amazing!
Gestört aber GeiL – Lieblingsarchitekt
I discovered this song I think about two months ago or something like that. And well, since then it’s been on pretty much every playlist I’ve created for myself on my phone. I just love the song. It is upbeat but also has a nice and fluid chorus.
BTS – Fire
There are four songs on this list you should not play while I’m working. One is Introducing Me, since I would totally start singing it without realizing, the other are two songs below but the top song is Fire. I have yet to experience a moment when the song was playing and I did not start moving. Hasn’t happened yet but I’m still trying. Not very hopeful though since the song is just so addicting and crazy strong.
Eric Nam – Potion
Eric Nam is the only artist that is featured twice on my all-time favourite artists list and I don’t regret that choice at all. I just love his voice and his songs and Poison just sold it for me that he is one of my favourite solo artists. Also the music video is really beautiful.
Eric Nam – Hold Me
This song made me fall totally in love with Eric Nam’s voice. Seriously I stopped listening to this song because when I played it once, I played it again and again and again and even if my ears hurt I wanted to hear it again…aw…I wanne hear it again now…this song is just so sweet.
Shawn Mendes – There’s Nothing Holding Me Back
This one and the next one are the songs I have to be careful about. I always sing to There’s nothing holding me back. I put it as my ringtone and it’s always fun how I forget to pick up and just listen to the song 😀 that’s how much I love the song. Seriously, I bought the CD album just for this one song (the other songs are good too but I just love this song too much).
Backstreet Boys – I Want It That Way
Soooo, this one…this one gets me EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. With some songs above I have the problem of not being able to stop singing or moving, with this one, I can’t stop doing both. And there isn’t really much dancing you have to do with this song. I just move my hands and feel the song and have fun with it. My work colleague had her fun when she played it once and I almost sang the song to our clients on the phone. Well…this one is definitely my guilty pleasure!
This is my list of all-time favourite songs. It changes from time to time but 90% of the time it’s songs being added rather than songs being removed from the list. Also, it took me a long time to gather the links since I just started listening to the songs instead of writing the post 🙂
Note: ever since watching the new Aladdin trailer I’ve been listening to A Whole New World, so I should have probably added that one too since the song is my favourite Disney song and I know all of the lyrics as well as love singing it.
Do you also have songs like this? What are your all-time favourite songs?
See you next time! Have a nice week!
