OMONA's PICK: #MAKEOMONALOVEEXO PART II - 10 SONGS THAT'LL MAKE YOU LOVE EXO (even more)



When I started the first part of this series almost two years ago (whew time flies!) I thought I would kill it and make you fall for them with my amazing persuading skills. Unfortunately, I've been slacking (ha) BUT I'm back and ready to continue this campaign! Now, two years have passed and a lot has happend: more music, two members serving ( sniff), Lay being a ghost member, me still not liking Black Pearl and much more. But let's focus on music for now to kick off the rest of my campaign. Here is my updated list of EXO's best 10 B-sides, excluding the 10 from the first post

So sit back relax, pop ya booty, cry but most importantly #LoveExo!!



01| XOXO
ALBUM: XOXO
YEAR: 2013


Chinese version

For the first song we're going all the way back to their first album with the same title. I love how cute and fun the song is but still allows vocal line to showcase their vocals. Especially DO kills it with the adlibs.

02| MY TURN TO CRY
ALBUM: MIRACLES IN DECEMBER
YEAR: 2013


Chinese version

Miracles In December is such a great album and should be listened to in its entirety! The guitar and beautiful harmonies are perfect for the upcoming cold period. This was also still during the period when only vocal line sang (lol) so the other members are not involved.

03| TRANSFORMER
YEAR 2015
ALBUM: EXODUS


Chinese version

TRANSFORMER GETS ME HYPE EVERY SINGLE TIME! Their live performances of the song are even better when you see it with the choreograpy. They (surprisingly to me) performed it at the 2016 MAMA awards and it also a part of their current tour Exploration.




04| EXODUS
YEAR 2015
ALBUM: EXODUS


Chinese version

Exodus is really THAT album so I could've put any song here of the album. However, I thought Exodus would be a great one because it's a great song that showcases EXO's shift from boys to men, which I think was the goal of this album.

05| THEY NEVER KNOW
ALBUM: EX’ACT
YEAR: 2016


Chinese Version

Ex'act (in my opinion) did a great job with sticking to EXO's R&B sound while still putting a twist on it. They Never Know still has the harmonies were used to but you wound't hear this on EXODUS for example. I think this is also the song that uses the same sample as a BTS song.

06| FALLING FOR YOU
ALBUM: fFOR YOU
YEAR: 2016


Chinese version

Now that summer is over I'm counting down to days 'til Christmas and what better way to bring me into the mood than listening to EXO's christmas songs!

07| CHILL
ALBUM: THE WAR
YEAR: 2017


Chinese version

I was thinking of including Touch It instead of Chill but DO's part told me not to lol.




08| DAMAGE
ALBUM: DON'T MESS UP MY TEMPO
YEAR: 2018


Chinese Version
It took me a while to realize how great it is and to be all the way honest it was actually a fancam of Chanyeol that made me love the song. Here is also a really cool breakdown of the vocals by the producers London Noise.

09| TRAUMA
ALBUM: LOVE SHOT
YEAR: 2018


No Chinese version

THIS.IS.CHEN'S.SONG

10| WAIT
ALBUM: LOVE SHOT
YEAR: 2018


No Chinese version

Last but not least we have Wait which is such a sweet song. But don't get it twisted: the vocals are on POINT! Especially the part at the end where they harmonize the "All I do" part and Baekhyun ends it with his falsetto. YES! It's also a great song to hear all the members (minus Lay) sing.


It was SO hard to limit myself to 10 songs so feel free to add your faves in the comments (or drag my choices)
