Earlier this week, the French music streaming platform Deezer teased a BTS surprise.
That surprise is a “Pocket Songs” playlist personally created by BTS’s members. Check out their all-time favorite songs here!
1. “Dynamite” by BTS
Naturally, BTS’s own music is first on the list! Last year, “Dynamite” shone light on dark times and propelled the group’s fame to new heights.
2. “Life Goes On” by BTS
BE‘s title track speaks from the heart about BTS’s experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020.
3. “Hotel Rosario” by Angel Snow
Angel Snow’s soulful voice will serenade you in this easy-listening song.
4. “right here” by keshi
This song takes a trip down memory lane, recalling happier times.
5. “Born Sinner” by J.Cole, featuring James Fauntleroy
“I’m a born sinner / But I’ll die better than that, I swear”. This rap song is all about using the gift of music to rise above one’s circumstances and become a better person.
6. “Juicy – 2007 Remaster” by The Notorious B.I.G.
Is your playlist missing classic hip-hop? Well, you’ve found it here!
7. “Change” by T-Pain, Akon, Diddy, and Mary J. Blige
This song is all about the desire to change the world for the better.
8. “My Favorite Clothes” by RINI
This heartfelt song is about a romantic relationship. It’s told from the perspective of someone who hopes that, in the end, the person they love will choose to stay with them rather than move on to someone new.
9. “Once in a Lifetime” by Sammy Davis Jr.
Sammy Davis Jr. is regarded as one of the greatest American entertainers of all time. Listen to this song to find out why!
10. “Late Night” by Lucky Daye
This flirty song about late nights, drinks, and fancy cars is perfect for driving (or dancing) to.
11. “Dance on Me” by GoldLink
Speaking of dancing, this hard-hitting hip-hop track deserves a spot on a “best of rap” playlist.
12. “Be (Intro)” by Common
The lyrics for this introspective track read like stream of consciousness, and they can be summed up in the song’s final lines: “The present is a gift / And I just wanna BE.”
13. “Fix You” by Coldplay
This song was on many people’s playlists back in 2005, and it’s still just as good in 2021.
14. “Friends” by Francis and the Lights, featuring Bon Iver
A BTS playlist would not be complete without a song about friendship.
15. “Sunset Too” by JustinPunpun
Friendship? The speaker of this song wants to move out of the friendzone and into love.
16. “How Can I” by H 3 F
“Remember the day, remember when you hold my hand / Took it for granted and threw it away.” This song is about longing for the chance to make amends after realizing that you’ve taken someone for granted and lost them.
17. “That’s Amore – Remastered” by Dean Martin, Ron Furmanek, and Sweet
It’s unclear which members chose the songs on Deezer’s playlist, but it’s likely that V chose this one. He loves listening to and sharing classic music with fans.
18. “Falling” by Harry Styles
19. “Someone You Loved” by Lewis Capaldi
This playlist has several sad love songs, but this one might be the most heartbreaking.
20. “Epilogue: Young Forever” by BTS
This iconic BTS song captures the bittersweetness of youth, and it defined 2016 for many ARMYs around the world.
