the soft sounds of autumn | kpop playlist

by - 11:34 AM

Hello friends! I've been wanting to do a seasonal playlist the entire summer but for some reason never got around to it. Now that I've worn long sleeves for a total of five consecutive days, I think it'll be a good time to introduce some of my favorite songs that give me all the autumn-vibes.

taeyeon - four seasons
Something about that opening line gives me chills every time I hear this song. Despite being originally released in the spring, it gives me major nostalgia vibes and Taeyeon's voice just sounds so incredibly smooth and perfect. 

red velvet - kingdom come
Legit the smoothest vocals in the world exist in this track. The Perfect Velvet Album is one of my favorites of all time and this track truly showcases how incredibly talented Red Velvet is. This song gives me goosebumps every time I listen to it - like mystery and hope combined together.

kim lip (loona)  - twilight
This is the perfect song for when you can't fall asleep in the middle of the night because there are so many thoughts in your mind. It also captures this sense of yearning that makes my heart just stop especially at the bridge (so. good.)


jinsoul (loona) - love letter
I think this song was the one that solidified my love for LOONA as a group. The duet between Jinsoul and Kim Lip, again so incredibly smooth but with more of a beat. Another song that's perfect for all the yearning feelings and restless nights.

hyunsik (btob) - dear love
I think there might be a recurring theme of unrequited love in this playlist...this song is quintessentially Hyunsik and made me miss BTOB so much. He does such a great job in conveying all the emotions into the lyrics and every performance, it honestly makes my heart cry a little.

i*zone - ayayaya
Dare I say that this is my favorite I*ZONE song ever? It's just so incredibly elegant and I've watched their performances on Mnet so many times I've lost count. The little flute/whistle sound in the background of the chorus gets stuck in my head all the time and I find myself humming along nonstop.
I've been listening to these songs on repeat while writing this post and now I just want to curl up with a blanket and stare out the window in contemplation. Don't forget to continue to take care of yourselves with the changing weather and the start of school whether in person or virtual.

If you'd like some more velvet-y songs, I have a playlist on Spotify.

What are some of your favorite autumn-vibe songs?

  1. For me, it's Stay with Me by Chanyeol and Punch. Maybe because Goblin as a whole has this ~fall aesthetic~ nailed perfectly, but that song reminds me of fall!

    Tasya // The Literary Huntress

    1. omg YES - my mom literally plays that song the minute it drops below 60 degrees and keeps it going. Ok I need to go rewatch some scenes now because just thinking about the music gets me in the feels.

  2. I have never made an autumn playlist, but I love the ideas of them! Thanks for sharing some of your favourite songs :D

    1. if you do make one, please share it with me!! :D

  3. I really like the two LOONA songs!!! The only song I knew from them before this was Satellite, but I'm going to look into their backlist now :) And fall vibes ... I'm a sad girl so I have to say Beautiful Goodbye by CHEN 😭
