bean heist (2/7)

today’s theme: 2007-2019

this week I’m playing songs that I’ve been listening to since I was a little kid- partly because I’m stressed and when that happens the ratio of this kind of music I listen to goes up.

Some pretty weird songs in the mix, including:

loony tunas (Y.M.C.A) – yellow kitchen

come back home – seo taeji and the boys

speed up losers – crying nut

annular eclipse – crying nut

your crush on me – super high tension

oh! what a shiny night – crying nut

회상 – 산울림 (reminisce – san ul lim)

what’s the point of climbing a mountain? – kiha & the faces

americano – 10 cm

mine – kiha & faces

graduation – hyukoh

CAT – sunwoo jung

wi ing wi ing – hyukoh

honey tea – oohyo


listen to crying nut- not only is their name amazing, their songs are absolute bangers.

Bean Heist (1/31)

today’s theme is happy birthday dad!

it was my dad’s birthday yesterday and I thought it would be appropriate to play all his favorite songs today. And although he loves his Billy Joel, I think he’ll like hearing some old bops from Seoul 1970 as well- so I put some of those in the later portion of the show. (not k-pop. my father did not listen to kpop in seoul in the 70s.)

I sang a lot of these songs with him when I was really little so I’ll most likely be dancing along in the station as they play.

piano man – billy joel

hey jude – the beatles

hotel california – the eagles

sweet home alabama – lynyrd skynrd

uptown girl – billy joel

come together – the beatles

사람이 꽃보다 아름다워 – 안치환 (she’s more beautiful than a flower – an chi hwan)

오늘이 좋다 – 안치환 (today is good – an chi hwan)

거꾸로 강을 거슬러 오르는 저 힘찬 연어들처럼 – 강산에 (like the strong salmon that swim againt the current –  kang san eh)

사랑했지만 – 김광석 (although I loved her – kim kwang seok)

꼬마야 – 산울림 (little kid – san ul lim)

마법의성 (magic castle)


(I have no idea why the song title for the salmon song is so long.)
