BTS‘s V did a livestream on July 24 where the singer ate sushi and vibed along to his playlist. He even said “today’s show is not about me. It’s about the music!”
So here’s the list of songs he played, ranging from rock to R&B, and from 1960 to 2021.
1. Bob Dylan – “Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door”
The livestream kicked off with V listening to Bob Dylan’s 1973 hit “Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door.” The song was originally composed for the movie Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid.
2. Al Green – “Belle”
Al Green’s 1977 song “Belle” was released on his 12th studio album, The Belle Album, at a time Green was making a switch from soul back to gospel.
3. Ellie Goulding – “Love Me Like You Do”
Though V skipped this song pretty quickly, it’s still worth noting he had it in his queue. Ellie Goulding’s 2015 “Love Me Like You Do” was part of the soundtrack for Fifty Shades of Grey.
4. Oasis – “Don’t Look Back in Anger”
The English rock band Oasis released “Don’t Look Back in Anger” in 1996. When introducing the song, V called them “Oasis-sunbaenim (senior)!”
5. Etta James – “At Last”
“At Last” was originally released as a pop song for the musical film Sun Valley Serenade (1941). Singer Etta James included her own version in her 1960 album At Last!, and it went on to became the blues singer’s signature song.
While listening to the song, V took some time to read comments, including one that said “I feel like I’m in a romantic scene!”
6. Tyler, The Creator – “CORSO”
“CORSO” was released in June 2021 in Tyler, The Creator’s album CALL ME IF YOU GET LOST.
V was surprised to hear this song come on suddenly, and said it’s one he’s been “listening to a lot lately!”
7. Boyz II Men – “End Of The Road”
Boyz II Men released “End Of The Road” in 1992, and it is considered one of the most successful songs of all time.
V was joined by RM while playing this song, and the two started passionately singing along!
Boyz II Men member Shawn Stockman gave V and RM a shoutout on Twitter for their love for the song!
Love it! Thanks fellas! ☺️ https://t.co/eVEjZ2bbc1
