This is the beginning of my campaign to make all of you fall in love with EXO and what better way than to start with what we’re all here for (looks will be for another time): music. Seeing as their fifth anniversary (!) just passed I thought it would be a great idea to share some of their best b-sides (aka some of my faves). So sit back relax, pop ya booty, cry but most importantly #LoveExo!!
01| MY LADY
My Lady is definitely one of my favorite songs on their first album XOXO. It’s a cute yet sexy pop song which suits DO honey vocals perfectly.
02| THE WINTER'S TALE
ALBUM: EXOLOGY CHAPTER 1: THE LOST PLANET
No Chinese version
I only found out about this song at the end of last year and apparently there were more people who had never heard of this song. When I say I love their Christmas songs I mean I LOVE them. R&B Exo is the best Exo. So if like me you like R&B Exo you’ll definitely like Winter Tale!
OKAY THIS IS THEIR BEST SONG! I DON’T CARE I’M WILLING TO FIGHT ANYONE WHO DISAGREES! The first time I heard this song was while watching one of their concert videos (Lost Planet) and I almost fell off my chair. Everything about this song is perfect and even though the choreography isn’t ground breaking, they deliver (especially Kai). Click HERE for a shorter OT9 version ( Kai’s change in expression at 0:59 will kill you)
Just like the name of this song Beautiful is a beautiful song (badum tss). Perfect as background music if you need some chill music or when you’re running through a field of flowers while the sun is setting. Also if you listen close enough you’ll hear an Oh Sehun singing.
05| WHAT IF
EXODUS really brought us some great songs like this R&B jam. Even though this is clearly DO’s territory, Baekhyun definitely shines with his high notes. No signs of Sehun or Chanyeol though…
06| EL DORADO
This song gets me HYPED and makes me feel like a sailor ready to fight off crazy and evil sea creatures! Apparently this was supposed to be EXODUS’ title song and even though I felt blessed for receiving Call Me Baby, I do wonder what could have been…
07| GIRL x FRIEND
ALBUM: SING FOR YOU
Another one of their great Christmas songs where every member is included in the song. A cute song about wanting to confess to their high school friend
08| WHITE NOISE
Even though it took me a few weeks, I LOVE THIS SONG. The house vibes and their vocals, especially their harmonies in the second hook oh my. I could have chosen Artificial Love but that would be too predictable since everyone and their mama know this song.
09| CLOUD 9
I feel as though this song isn’t being talked about enough. I just love how fluffy, dreamy and fun this song is! Everyone (including Lay for those 3 seconds) sounds really good with Chanyeol singing the bridge being my favorite part!
10| WHAT I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS
ALBUM: FOR LIFE
I should have made this into a Christmas special cause here I am again with a Chrismas song. It’s the last one I swear.

So Omona, tell me, are you ready to love these kings? Which songs do you love/hate and which songs did I forget to include?
yay first post!
