Shuffle the Music #2

Go Slow – Tei Shi

My favorite parts in this song are the breathy halinghing that remind me of a less energetic Robyn or a funkier Moira De La Torre.

You Get What You Give – New Radicals

I found this song in a friend’s playlist called “Notes To Self.” This song is a good pick-me-upper (don’t let go / you got the music in you) but I usually just listen to it when I’m pulling an all-nighter and I need to stay awake.

Yahoo – Imago

I don’t think I would listen to Imago’s Effect Desired None if not for rAdishhorse’s album review. “Yahoo” isn’t really my favorite track (it’s so Blush-y) but I like it enough. ‘Di ka pa nadalaaaa!

White Houses – Vanessa Carlton

High school bop! 🙂

Beautiful Days – Kyla

I remember playing this song during crunch time in the college paper’s office and a colleague looked at me and asked, “Naka-drugs ka ba??”

Crash Into Me – Dave Matthews Band

Do people really hate the Dave Matthews Band? I don’t get it. I think “Grace is Gone” is one of the saddest break-up songs ever written (excuse me please / one more driiiink). “Crash Into Me” is good too. Hmm.

Five Years – Sugar Hiccup

Wuw oldies.

Sa ‘Yo Pa Rin – Glaiza De Castro

Ang ganda nito! The entire Synthesis album is dope, akshali.

The Weather Report – Cynthia Alexander

Another high school bop. 🙂

Photographs – Chloe Jane

I discovered this song last year (two years ago?) when I was going through a break-up. I’ve moved on, obviously, because I don’t even remember when it happened exactly.

Paris – The 1975

Uy gusto ko rin ‘to! Ganda rin ng album title: I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it. Kilig! ❤

Feel Your Weight (Poolside Remix) – Rhye, Poolside

I like both Poolside and Rhye but I only heard about their collaboration because of Bess Clef — you really have to visit her page if you want to discover dope music.

Ang Huling El Bimbo – Eraserheads

Nakakaindak, nakakaaliw, nakakatindig balahibo. ‘Lang masabi? Haha.

Brick – Ben Folds Five

Apparently this song is about the time when Ben Folds’ girlfriend had to go through an abortion. 😦

Sober – Childish Gambino

Why am I listening to this? Hmm.

    “I think “Grace is Gone” is one of the saddest break-up songs ever written (excuse me please / one more driiiink). “Crash Into Me” is good too.”

    Saddest? Hello? Di mo ba alam yung “Let Me Be The One” by our friendly neighborhood DDS na si Jimmy Bondoc? Hahaha.

    Gusto ko rin yung Crash dati. Ok lang siya. Gusto ko yung weird phrasing ni Dave Matthews. Ngunit ngayon, nagulat ako sa lyrics ng Crash. Hehehe. Parang mas Ok pa yung “your body is a wonderland,” eh. O siguro same ballpark lang sila? Tama ba, parang “sweet” love song ang dating niya (o ako lang yon dati?). Di ko mareconcile yung “sweet” at yung “hike your skirt.” XD

    Hike up your skirt a little more
    And show the world to me

    Oh I watch you there
    Through the window
    And I stare at you
    You wear nothing but you
    Wear it so well
    Tied up and twisted,

    I’m the king of the castle
    Your a dirty rascle,

      KKLK hindi ko alam na ganyan ‘yan! Hahaha. Hindi ko actually alam lyrics, never pa ako naki-sing along, gusto ko lang talaga ‘yung tunog. Hehe.

      Parang hindi naman predatory ‘yung buong kanta, ‘no? Kinky lang, pwedeng basahin na “stripper” ‘yung kinakantahan niya.

      Gusto ko rin ang “Your Body is a Wonderland”! Hahaha. Hinimay namin ‘yan sa poetry class n’ung high school, pati na rin ‘yung “Popsicle Toes” ni Michael Franks. Baka makatulong sa ginagawa mong tula on vaginas hahahaha. 😀

        Di naman predatory. Di rin stripper. Kinky, sexy time lang sya. Pero mas ok lyrics ni john mayer. Teacher nyo ba nag suggest ng Popsicle Toes, eh 70s pa pala yun. Napa research tuloy ako. Di ko lang ma gets bakit popsicle. Malalaki daliri nya? Kasi sinusuck niya? Fetish? Cold feet to try something new/experiment in bed?

          Ano ‘yung “I watch you there / through the window”? Bakit may window? Haha.

          Yuh, teacher namin nag-suggest. Ang naalala kong take niya ni ma’am ay foot fetish nga raw, pero wala pa akong alam sa mga ganyan noon e. Hahaha.
