My music tastes changed as I grew up, which I did not really notice until I was selecting music for this month’s playlist. I used to love listening to club and house music for their strong and catchy beats. Over time, I shifted to more relaxing tunes. For the past year or two, I have been listening to a lot of Mandopop and Cantopop, Jay Chou and Eason Chan at first, but I expanded the variety of artists I listen to. The style of Mandopop and Cantopop is mainly romantic, so I find them pleasant and relaxing to listen and sing to.
I included a few songs in English that I enjoy singing along to as well, like Ed Sheeran and Adele, as I listened to them a lot in the past. Additionally, I chose two opening songs from Hajime no Ippo, which is a boxing anime that I loved. The soundtrack hypes me up and makes me want to throw a few punches like the main character Ippo so it helps get me moving when I feel a bit lazy. I hope you enjoy this month’s playlist.
