    Well, well. Now that I am done shading and affectionately dissing the group that is basically my EVERYTHING and had my traitorous awesome fandom back me up here. I think it's time to come back on the right side of the tracks and appreciate the hidden beauty in BIGBANG's discography. I guarantee you that there is atleast one song on this list that you haven't heard before. Because they are very rarely talked about. Though I have to warn you, that I have weird taste and chances are you might not like what I love but these in my opinion are precious songs that need more appreciation.

    So here we go:


    Taeyang - This isn't it



    Ok, honestly I have no idea why this song isn't more talked about 'cause holy hell. This is a gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous song. It's just so beautiful and the way Taeyang sings it is completely heartfelt. Everytime he sings the chorus, I just feel my heart hurt. I don't even know why. The vocals are just no joke. It's a masterpiece and this is one of the reasons why Rise is one of my most favorite albums by a solo artist ever.



    Here's ^ him singing it live and eating the CD like always. I wish I found a better live because the way he sang it in his seoul DVD was just so goddamn amazing but unfortunately, everytime I upload it on youtube, YG takes it down. that's how he spends all his days nowadays ;)


    BIGBANG - She can't get enough



    Oh this is such a 2000 song and the nostalgia is extreme. I love the chorus and I love the vibe of this. It's also a very cheeky track considering it hints at cheating on your friend with his girl and all the feelings that come with conflicted morals. So you have a very naughty GD writing this shiz.

    BIGBANG - STAY



    Oh My God. I love this song so much. Ok before you shoot me a side eye just listen to it till the end. Just ignore the weird GD & Tabi rap part in the beginning and wait for Seungri to come up 'cause fucking hell Seungri. Seungri. Seungi. This is how panda slays all the ot4 bitches who aren't VIPs as far as I'm concerned who think he can't sing and if his slayage wasn't enough you got Daesung to steal your breath away and then Taeyang seals the deal with his magnificence. It's just a trifecta of badassery and the vocals here are simply amazing. Literally, they amaze me. Please like it juseyo :3

    BIGBANG - I Don't understand



    Ok I can completely understand pun intended if y'all don't like this one because it's definitely an acquired taste. But for me this is the song to listen to when I am in a particularly melodramatic mood. You know when you're resting your head against a window and sadly looking outside and it's raining. You know that mood? That's me while listening to this.
    I love the vocals here again unsurprisingly. The way Youngbae sings shiptago just ignites my feels and I absolutely love the guitar at the end and the rain sound maxes up the vibe. This song works for me quite nicely.

    BIGBANG - GOODBYE BABY



    Ugh this is such a power song. So sassy. It's basically a- bitch I'm doing just fine without your ditcher ass. So goodbye- fuck off message. And it gets me so hyped. Also I love GD's rap part here.
    It also has an official video but I didn't link it 'cause um well, these idiots are doing completely ridiculous things there and as cute as it is, it takes away from the song lol so if you want, check it out only after you've heard this.

    G DRAGON FT. TABLO, DOK 2 - Light it up



    This song literally snatched the wigs off everybody and their mommas. Holy shit the lyrics spit fire. It's swag incarnate. To give you a hint at what their saying I will put down a snippet of GD's part:

    Hoho, babble all you want, your amateur rapping
    that’s as slow as your old mom in a 3 minute porno
    Hold up, “This is the moment” is what you all think
    before witch-hunting on an innocent being,
    but whatever the hell you say, I’ll decline your words
    Rebelling? Nope! I love the Republic of Korea
    But all these fake motherfuckers don’t know how to act
    “That singer from three years ago
    still hasn’t died and made a comeback?”
    You pieces of shit who are all talk and no action,
    come line up in front of me
    Light it up on one, two, three

    Lmao somebody is not playing. ;") Ofc you got Tablo right there who I am a massive fan of and DOK 2 to make this more lit. It's just an amazing song with a killer beat and it gets me going when I'm angry.



    Here's ^ a live to slay your existence further. My only regret is that it ain't HD but oh well, the swag penetrates through the low quality innit? ;)

    GD & T.O.P Ft. Pixie Lott - Dancing On My Own



    This is by far one of my most favorite BIGBANG songs in English. It's just so good you know. And their voices sound great. I actually made an entire thread on it when I first discovered it lol so I'm not gonna talk too much bout it.

    BIGBANG - Top Of The World




    It's the chorus guys. It gets me. I love it. Daesung's voice is just pure you know and Taeyang's falsetto :3 I am a goner, sorry.


    BIGBANG - Oh My Friend!



    This song is very close to my heart. Before I was gifted with Sober this was the song I used to scream and lose myself to lol and the lyrics the fucking lyrics are so damn good. And ofc GD wrote all of it but still people have the nerve to discredit him smh. Speaking of, I can't believe I didn't add this song in the meaningful lyrics
    thread but BIGBANG has so many of these gems that I can't keep track, such is my predicament lol

    T.O.P - Oh Mom!



    Actually a lot of VIPs don't like this one but oh well I'mma twirl on those haters. It's a great song as far as I'm concerned. The only thing that annoys me is the little dose of autotune they inserted in this like why? Tabi sang it live and it was brilliant no need for the tweaking but anyway, this is also the song that has about a billion of theories behind it. But all you need to know is that he wrote it for his Japanese fan who had breast cancer who wrote him a letter about how his voice makes him happy and this is kind of his reply. Now what really happened to her is a discussion for a different day.

    **************************

    Actually, I'm still not done but my media limit is over so I'll stop here. Ofcourse there are a lot more under-rated songs but these are some of the ones that are truly hidden because BB don't perform them in their concerts anymore.


    Anyway what other undiscovered BIGBANG gems do you know of?? Lemme know ;")

    Taeyang’s songs are always underrated... oh well at least someone appreciate them, look at Queen Ailee who covered it.
    I love this mashup :nervousk:

    I’m so waiting for a collab please :lover1:

    Omg wow I didn't know Ailee covered it :O It's so great :O

    And you're right about bae's songs being so under-rated. But like seriously if I could I'd literally force everyone in my vicinity to listen to Rise lol. I love its English intro too and I loved his tour DVD for it. Literally the way he performed that album, you could literally feel all the ladies having a heart attack in the audience through the screen. The sensory overload was too much x'D

    Been waiting for a collab with Ailee and Taeyang for so long, I wish it was already here. That mashup is a repeatable song, so angelic and beautiful. I love watching her awee over Taeyang.

    OH MY GOSHESSSS JEANA!!! I ABSOLUTELY LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS SONG!! I disovered it about a month ago and I fell head over heals! I swear Taeyang is a treasure! And as famous as he is, I still think he is still under-rated.
    This and "Stay With me" have been my jams lately..

    I would say Love Dust and GD's "Window" but they are already so well-known in the fandom as faves that it's kinda pointless to point them out.
    I love "Window" to the extent that I wrote like a whole book as an MV concept for it in one of Milly's thread.. shame no one read it and it never going to happen!

    Hahaha it's such a treat. Such a pure song ;_;
    The funny thing is on the same album he has this cheeky bop with the lyrics 'I got the body. U got the body. Now you and me let's make somebody' x'D That song is full of trollbae essence.

    Window is such a gem. I remember listening to it non stop when I first discovered it a long time ago and ofc Stay With Me is brilliant too. We are so lucky tbh cause we got so much damn variety of good as fuck music :D

    Also please post your MV concept here 'cause I wanna read it. I've grown quite fond of you and your wild imagination.

    heheheehe.. BAE is such a unique cookie I swear... most of the times he does not get the situation around him and is so confused and awkward, and then all of a sudden he will throw a burn that will make you wheeze your lungs out laughing, straight outta left field..lol... truly unpredictable!

    It took me a few minutes to find it..lol.. I request that you listen to the song while reading..
    WARNING.. Its DARK...

    WHAT. MIND. FUCKERY. IS. THIS?????!!!?!!

    Lmao as if GD needs you to encourage him to write more songs on being a stalker lmao As if Obsessed and She's Gone wasn't enough lmaooo you sadist.
    You bad bad VIP xD

    Also I was getting extremely triggered by the implication that GD had self harmed because that is something I really didn't want to read in light of his struggle with depression but it seems it's the girl alone and her imagination so now I wanna strangle you for being a manic genius

    For me Window was like a goodbye letter to a loved one from someone who's dying. But even though they know how it will end, they are giving that person they love strength and comfort one last time before leaving them forever. It was so bittersweet yet haunting but now ... Idek :cryingr:

    Hehehehehehe.... That was the best reaction possible.. I swear I seem like a cheerful hyperbole kinda person, but the stuff I write is DARK and tragic... has always been this way... Another thing I have in common with Ji..lol.. But I guess I am less angrier than him.. frustrated yes, but not angry.
    Also I would never do that to GD, I could never be that insensitive to a living breathing person, let alone a person I genuinely love and respect even if I don't know him personally.

    YAS FAM YASSSSS! A+ thread!

    I feel like VIPs are always sleeping on Dae's Japanese releases, and I genuinely don't understand why??? They're so good!

    I'm so happy that at least he gets to perform Shut Up during their Japan tour stops, but ughhhh they never touch it beyond Japan!


    I Love You is so, so beautiful - and yet again, never touched! whyyyyyyyy?


    and this one, which I honestly don't know the English name of, but I don't care because it's fantastic (and the MV is hilarious)


    As for GD, there are two that I don't think get the attention they deserve (at least I haven't seen it anywhere):



    and as I'm pretty sure anyone who has followed me on AKP can attest, I think this is the most underrated song on planet earth: Divina Commedia


    I get that ^^this song is not for everyone (especially because he's extra whiny in this song than normal) but he's so emotionally raw and numb in this song, it's incredible when you read the lyrics. Straight up, this and Still Alive were the songs that got me out of my most recent depression spell. I really wish more people would give it a chance!

    You're a chameleon like our GD aren't you. But the creepy type. XD Remind me to look twice over my shoulder if I ever visit Bahrain. X'D Who knows which dark alley you're going to pop out from, brandishing a knife and an 'eerie smile' to go with it x'D

    I get that. I was so shocked at first. Like omg no how could she possibly write this. But then I read ahead and realized my concern was unfounded!

    hahha thankyou sistah! I actually didn't add any of Daesung's songs because I was planning to make an entire thread dedicated to his music alone lol I was waiting to get my hands on his concert DVD so that I could talk about all his live performances in the thread too.

    I don't know why people don't hype Dae's music but maybe that's because most fans are BB fans and not solo stans and GD alone usually has all his solo albums listened to the most. Dae also has a very different sound so he appeals to the older generation more than the younger. I personally love his voice and his music. On one hand It's soulful on a whole other level. And on the other it's filled with typical Japanese WACK.

    As far as "A boy" is concerned I thought it was a pretty well-known song among the fandom?? Isn't that so? I though "Today" and She's Gone" were more under-rated than this hehehe

    But I agree 100% on Divina Commedia. I feel like because it went by so quickly and he didn't promote this album much at all, didn't perform on music shows and quickly went on the tour and then military because of lack of time- the GP and i-fans didn't fully explore and weren't completely exposed to his album except Untitled 2014. This album for me was such a masterpiece because it's his most personal. DC has a haunting feel to it and I love, love the lyrics.

    The reason I didn't include it, is because I talked so much about it when it got released that I had it in my mind that people already know of its existence :p

    You and I are soul sisters!!

    Kwon Ji Yong = greatest GD album

    As for 'A Boy', I know it was bigger when he first released the Heartbreaker album, but now people will only talk about 'Heartbreaker' and 'Breathe', and the whole rest of the album falls by the wayside, including A Boy :(

    Yes, yes we are! :yesr:

    Omg lol dun mean to shade that emperor totally mean to shade but Heartbreaker and breathe are probably my least favorite popular GD tracks. It's the autotune. lmao Though he makes them work like a badass in live performances and I've listened to them so much that I have almost half learned their lyrics. But still, hyping them over "A boy" is a blasphemy 'cause it's the best track on the album. :quietr:
