Of Songs and Melodies

Just imagine the world without music and probably we will be shedding tears for sheer boredom. Whatever genre we belong, either were into RnB, classical or heaven forbid novelty songs, nothing beats the freedom to listen to soothing sounds. May it be reading a book or doing our work or even exercising, music adds flavor to our otherwise bland existence.

Well, I was tagged so you might as well delete my first paragraph. It is just but a lame attempt to segue my point hehehe!

As requested, the following are my se7en 'current' favorite songs:

~ Far Away/Someday/Saving Me All by Nickelback (C'mon it's the same band, so I classified them as ONE song... gimme a break)

~ Reason Enough by Regine Velasquez

~ Completely by Christian Bautista

~ Where Did my Heart Go by James Ingram

~ I Fall All Over Again by Dan Hill

~ Can't Fight this Feeling by REO Speedwagon

~ Why Don't You and I by Santana


...So, you might be thinking at this time that I'm such a hopeless romantic as the songs that I drool over are mostly love songs. Give the guy a little slack because I still blush when I hear Dan Hill or James Ingram...drifting me into a faraway, long-time ago moments with my first crushes or even my first...[feel in the blanks]

And I do come with my own song backgrounds.

Yes! We remember people and places when a song was being played, nudging us back to downtown MemoryVille. That is why when I hear one of my choice songs...I can't help but to stop and be still, burrowing deep behind my thoughts and taste once again the unique experience I almost forgot.


My four month old Nephew, Gian Marco.

I wonder how this little guy will dance to the rhythm of life.

My playlist showcases random languaged songs. No wonder I might be singing Indonesian, Korean, or Chinese if you enter my room all of a sudden. ^_^

I see you're a fan of Chad Kroeger... I am a fan myself. Aside from the Nickelback songs, you also listed the one he did with Santana (But there is also another version by Alex Band of The Calling).

Your nephew can lift his head already. He is so adorable.

cute ng baby na miss ko na tuloy baby ko(i mean daughter ko ha)

here are my favorite...

1. Debbie Gibson - Lost in your eyes, No more rhyme

2. Tiffany - Could've been, If Love is Blind

3. Sarah Mclahclan - I will remember you, Adia, Angel

4. James Ingrams - There's no easy way, How do you keep the music playing w/ Patti Austin

5. Joey ALbert - Points of View, Million miles away

6. Fiona Apple - Across the universe.

7. Klymaxx - I miss you, I'd still say yes

8. The Jets - Make it real

hehehe Mahilig me sa female artist tol kasi ma fefeel mo yong emotions everytime na kumakanta sila. James Igrams gusto ko sya kaso yong kanta nya na Just Once Overused na kaya minsan naiirita ako. Everytime I have a proble I always listen to this song kasi nga soothing tsaka nakakagaan ng loob.

musta bro????
thnx ha....

hopping in from iskoo's blog...

You got tagged by that meme thing huh? Nice choice of songs, like the nickelback selections as well.

And may I add that I think you have a fairly written blog, you seem to know hot to play with words.

Cute nephew! Now you can share your love of music with him while he's growing up and before he's worried about just being "cool." :)

ICE: Nice play list ha! Oo nga eh, medyo overuse na ang Just Once pero masarap pa ring i-karaoke :-)

Reo Speedwagon was one of my favourite bands in high school. "That" song and their other mega hit "In my dreams" are one of those songs that has become an anthem in my youthful infantuations.

REY: My kuya, the dad of my Neph, always sing that track on the Karaoke and it has become my favorite since.

80's rule by the way hehe!
