Playlist Monsters


This current playlist is dominated by artists I don’t regularly like. I found myself heavily listening to these singles I have never expected to come out.. just right in time. And despite the fact that the artists aren't appealing much to me, I found that these beats are perfect summer anthems, especially for imperfect people who loved and lost, but chose to live the summer. Take time to reflect on these tracks, you might be surprised you're unknowingly filling someone else's shoes. You'll know that you are are not alone; and that other people have heavier burden right on their shoulders.

Cracking first: Pink’s ‘Just Give Me A Reason’(featuring Nate Ruess of fun.), a single that is ironically, overflowing with emptiness. This is a pretentious single about wallowing on something that's already lost. I bet everyone's digging for this tune as it becomes radio inescapable at this point of time. On a very rare occasion, I'm jumping on the bandwagon.

Next is a straight-to-the-point, ‘If you ever change your mind’, courtesy of Marion Aunor, finalist from 2013 Himig Handog Love Songs. Nothing really lasts forever, thus, we need to accept that expirations are inevitable. At any point, anything could possibly go wrong. And when worse comes to worst, one must learn to love himself enough not to try to put things back together as not all things that break needs to be fixed.


Third, is Angela Miller’s cover of The Beatles classic, ‘Yesterday’, from American Idol 2013 that which fits well with the job. There are tons of wonderful things brought by love but there are hard consequences associated to it as well. Watching someone leave is an example.


And after a relatively heavy line-up, here's a positive note, and it's happening in my playlist right now: Justin Timberlake’s ‘Mirrors’, one of the best tracks lurking around the airwaves at this moment.

Well it’s a hard lesson to realize what terrible things we could be thinking, much as we like to think the best of ourselves. There are things that send us into dark places within ourselves. Oftentimes, we ended up trying to believing that those broken things could still be fixed. We are afraid to accept that some things are really over in which we ended up pretending and hanging on to lost memories.

  10. Love all the themes of each, very timely. You should be a music reviewer in a magazine. I like the way you describe the songs and the feelings it create on you.

  15. I can't find any reason why i suddenly love Just Give Me a Reason. Hindi naman ako in a particular mood or situation para maka relate sa story ng kanta.

    But it's a nice song to do a cover, kun magaling sana ako sa gitara eh.

    Sino ba ng bagong co-songwriter niya? Lately she's making wonders with her songs. Not to mention her outstanding live performance sa Grammy yata yun.
