Best of BTS – Our Playlist

If you are new to BTS and their body of work, you will certainly drown on how extensive their discography is. To date, they have a total of 182 Korean tracks from 30 Albums including the Japanese releases, special editions and the repackaged ones. Not to mention the BE Album that was released last November 20. That’s a lot! We know because we got drowned too the first time we discovered the numbers. This article however will not delve into all of their songs but rather on the ones that have been our favorite. We have also included the lyrics from each song that have touched us deeply as well as our Spotify playlist. So sit back, ready your speakers or earphones and stream!

Album: 2 Cool 4 Skool



“You’re not even mine anymore
but why do I feel like you’re
being taken away.”



Album: O!RUL8,2?



“Our heartless promises
Countless mistakes and other wrongs
Our unspeakable and small wounds
The glass filled with memories is more bitter as I drink it.”



Album: Skool Luv Affair


Just One Day

“I appreciate the masterpiece that is you
because your existence alone is art
I imagine this all night every day
because it’s a meaningless dream anyway.”



“I have a long way to go but why am I running in place?
I scream out of frustration but the empty air echoes
I hope tomorrow will be different from today
I’m just wishing.”



Album: Dark and Wild



“We are like parallel lines. We are so different
though we both are looking at the same place.”


2nd Grade

“How cold the world can be
Prejudice, malicious comments, double standards
insults and indifference.”



Album: The Most Beautiful Moment in Life pt. 1



“I reject rejection
I’m always over the top
Dope, Dope, Dope, Dope.”



Album: The Most Beautiful Moment in Life pt. 2:



“Make me run
Make me run more
Let my feet rip apart with wounds
At least I can smile when I see you.”



“Will you stay by my side
Will you promise me
If I let go of your hand, you’ll fly away and break
I’m scared scared scared of that.”


Whalien 52

“Even if my breaths are blocked
Because I’m confined in that wall
(I) head towards the surface of water above.”


Autumn leaves

“Fall like those dry leaves
Just falling without strength, my love
Your heart just goes far away
I can’t catch you.”



Album: The Most Beautiful Moment in Life: Young Forever


Save Me

“Listen to my heartbeat
It calls you whenever it wants you
Because within this pitch black darkness
You are shining so brightly.”


Epilogue: Young Forever

“Forever we are young
Under the flower petals raining down
I run, so lost in this maze.”



Album: Wings/You Never Walk Alone


Blood Sweat and Tears

“Peaches and cream
Sweeter than sweet
Chocolate cheeks
and chocolate wings
But your wings are the devil’s
There is a ‘bitter next to your ‘sweet’.”



“You make me begin.”



“I know
Every life’s a movie
We got different stars and stories
We got different nights and mornings.”



“To lose your path
Is the way to find that path.”



“It’s okay, come on when I say one, two, three forget it
Erase all sad memories
Smile holding onto each other’s hands.”


Spring Day

“Miss you
Saying this makes me miss you even more.”

“Like the tiny dust, tiny dust floating in the air
Will I get to you a little faster
If I was the snow in the air.”


“Spring Day, lyrics wise, is a Korean masterpiece” – DKDKTV



Here’s the full MV:



You Never Walk Alone

“even if we’re covered in scars
we can smile if we’re together.”



Album: Love Yourself: Her



“Maybe it’s the providence of the universe
It just had to be that
You know, I know
You are me, I am you.”
“The universe has moved for us
Without missing a single thing
Our happiness was meant to be
Cuz you love me, and I love you.”


Best of Me

“When you say that you love me
I walk above the clouds.”



Album: Love Yourself: Tear



“But in the end, spring will come someday
The ice will melt and flow away.”


Fake Love

“I wish love was perfect as love itself
I wish all my weakness could be hidden
I grew a flower that can’t be bloomed
in a dream that can’t come true.”


The Truth Untold

“I can’t show a ruined part of myself
Once again I put a mask on and go to see you.”



“It’s alright to not have a dream
All the breaths you breathe are already in paradise.”


Magic shop

“Let’s make a door in your heart
Open the door and this place will await
It’s okay to believe, the magic shop will comfort you.”


Fun fact: This song is based on a memoir “Into the Magic Shop” of the American neurosurgeon James Doty.



Album: Love Yourself: Answer



Take my hands now
You are the cause of my euphoria.”



“I’m the one I should love in this world
Shining me, precious soul of mine.”


I’m Fine

“Even if someday, I’m not me anymore
It’s alright, only I am my own salvation.”



Album: Map of the Soul: Persona


Intro: Persona

“Dear myself
You must never lose your temperature
Cuz you don’t need to be neither warm nor cold.”



“Starlight that shines brighter in the darkest night
The deeper the night, the brighter the starlight.”

“Shine, dream, smile
Oh, let us light up the night
We shine just the way we are.”



Album: Map of the Soul 7:


Black swan

“If this can no longer resonate
No longer make my heart vibrate
Then like this may be how
I die my first death.”


00:00 (Zero o’clock)

“When the minute and second hands overlap
The world holds its breath for a little while
zero o’clock.”


Inner Child

Tonight, if I reach my hand to yours
Can you hold that hand?
I’ll become you
You just have to look at my galaxies
Be showered with all those stars
I’ll give you my world
The lights illuminating your eyes
They’re the me of now
You’re my boy, my boy
My boy, my boy, my boy



“You are my soulmate
Longer than seven summers and cold winters
Longer than numerous promises and memories.”



“In the crescent moon night
Even if I close my eyes
You come to me blue
In the full moon night.”


We are Bulletproof: Eternal

“We were only seven
But we have you all now
After seven winters and springs
At the tips of our entwined fingers.”


Note: If you are an ARMY, you know how especial this song is…
