Hello and welcome!
I feel like before I start, I need to point out that is my opinion, you are entitled to yours. This is my favourite BTS songs.
Me loving these songs have more to do with the lyrics and the general feel of the songs rather than music videos, performance, choreography and even the instrumentals.
I have to say my favourite album till date is the WINGS album, I just love it.
For this post I will not be adding any solo songs e.g I love Lie, which is Jimin solo but I won’t be adding it to the list.
10. The CYPHERS PT.1-4
Okay so we all have to agree that the bars that Suga, J-hope and RM were spitting on these tracks were fire.
I don’t know how else to say this than “that shit is fire”
Check it out if you like rap
This is a widely popular song and it was in the LOVE YOURSELF: HER album
Our encounter is the mathematical formula
The law of religion, the providence of the Universe
Evidence of fate given to me, you are the source of my dream
To me, it is the sweetest love story ever..
This is one of my favourite songs in THE MOST BEAUTIFUL MOMENT IN LIFE:YOUNG FOREVER which is a complication album
I’ll stop the time (give it away)
After this moment (past)
I’m afraid I will be afraid to lose you
This song is so sweet and sad, it more about a fleeting moment than of loss, being too afraid of a moment in time passing, wishing you could get it back.
7. Magic Shop
This was on the LOVE YOURSELF: TEAR album
I know you’re hesitating
After all, it returns to the scars
I will not say anything that makes you feel strong
It’s about keeping strong has you walk through a dark world because you can hope that the one you love would be waiting at the end. The magic shop is more like a representation of what you get waiting through tough times.
I really loved this song.
6. Love is not over
The feel of this song is just out of this world
Love is Sick and painful, yeah
Parting is sick and more painful
I would not do without you
This is probably about being unable to do without someone but then when they do leave, you realize that it is worse than you thought. So you don’t want the love to end.
5. House of Cards
Now this one, is one you need to watch live, it just get you in the mood. The four vocalist singing in the rain just makes it a whole lot hotter.
Now, everything I subtracted from you before your eyes
Darkness with a tremendous darkness
Speak like a fool
Just watch the live performance, you will be blown away. This song is really not clear, it feels like a sweet song but it is quite dark. It might be about two lovers who are living in a house made of card (I.e a feeble or false relationship) which is easy to fall and since they are in the house, it would crumble on them.
Just my interpretation!
4. Paradise (낙원)
This is definitely one of my best BTS songs and I can’t recommend it enough.
It’s okay not to run, stop and take a breath in paradise
It’s okay to stop
You do not have to run without knowing why
It’s fine without a dream
At first this song seems like it is saying to give up but it is quite different, it more like take a pause, evaluate why you are doing things, is it for you or is it to please others. “Its okay not to have a dream, be happy”
If you have moments of happiness for a while
It’s okay to stop
I do not run without knowing the purpose
It’s fine without a dream
all your breathing is already in paradise
we make dreams from others (like debt)
3. Blood, Sweat & Tears
Damn this song, no matter how much I listen to it, just can’t get enough. Still has my favourite BTS theory. The lyrics is just another thing.
You’re addicted to prison
I cannot serve anyone other than you
This song is about temptation and falling and being happy in the destructive love. Temptation and sin was the major theme of the song.
I just loved it
2. Hold Me Tight
Okay, maybe this TMI, I listen to this song every day in the shower. I just love the feel and how it flows, gosh, it just so good
It’s still a light for you
It’s still a fragrant flower
Now believe me, hold me again
I believe this song is about a hopeful reunion but if it doesn’t happen then that okay but please don’t let me go.
1. Spring Day
It been years and a lot of great songs have been released but this song just stays on the top of the list for me.
Will we meet (see you)
Past the end of the cold winter
Until springtime comes again
Stay a little longer there
The way it talks about loss and missing someone is just so precious and sad
I never forget
I want to be honest
I’ll erase you
It’s less painful than resenting you
Feeling pain so deep that the only way to take it away is erase the memory of a loved one because you resent them for making you feel so much that the loss of them is painful
I have a lot of songs I want toadd to this list, Sea, Outro: Tear and much more
BTS’ albums have recurring themes that fall under the over-arching theme of reflection of youth.
Their school trilogy explored the troubles and anxieties of school-age youth.
Their youth series tackled a subject that the vast majority of youth experience, mental health and the desire to belong in society.
Wings focused on temptation and sin.
The Love Yourself series utilized a narrative form to illustrate the excitement of love, the pains of farewell, and the enlightenment of self-love.
