The One Who Walks Away From Omelas is a short fictional story that was made by Ursula K. Le Guin back in October 1973. I first know about this short story from one of BTS’ Spring Day music video. In that music video, they put up a big ‘Omelas’ sign in one scene. Then there are ARMYs (BTS fans) who shared that BTS use ‘The One Who Walk Away From Omelas’ book for their inspiration.

This was the second time I made songs medley. The first one I made last year from Naura’s two songs, Lukisan Indonesia and Selimut. And this time, I made medley from eight BTS songs. I made this because I was inspired by my friend that also can play piano. On her instagram, she made K-Pop song mashup. So, I tried to search some of BTS’s songs that I like and made it into a medley.
The songs that I choose consist of:
- Let Go (FACE YOURSELF ALBUM)
- Spring Day (YOU NEVER WALK ALONE ALBUM)
- Blood, Sweat, and Tears (WINGS ALBUM)
- DNA (LOVE YOURSELF ALBUM)
- Go Go (LOVE YOURSELF ALBUM)
- Mic Drop (LOVE YOURSELF ALBUM)
- Save Me (YOUNG FOREVER ALBUM)
- I Need U (YOUNG FOREVER ALBUM)
Before I made the cover, first I categorized the songs according to the music beat and the chord of the melody. I really used my feeling to do this (feel the beat, feel the melody, and find the right chord). The two songs at the beginning (Let Go and Spring Day) have a calm tempo and played on E major. While the rest of the song have relatively upbeat tempo and played on C# minor. In each song, I try to made the left hand accompaniment differently. So when people listen to the medley, they won’t feel bored.
And… this is it! The medley that I made, I hope you like it!
Before I end this post, if you also want to see my friend’s cover, her instagram username is @_naylafza_ . Besides the K-Pop song mashup, she also covered a lot of other song. So check it out!
I think that’s enough for today, bye!!
