Now playing

It has been more than a week since I last wrote, and still I have nothing worthy of blogging. So I’ll just bore you with some music recommendations.

  1. Vienna Teng – Both Waking Hour and the newer Warm Strangers are worthy of iPod storage, if only I have one. My favorite tracks: “Harbor,” “Shasta (Carrie’s Song),” “Hope on Fire” and “Shine”.
  2. Rivermaya’s new single “Liwanag sa Dilim,” another beautiful song by Rico Blanco, no doubt. By the way, I have the lyrics to the song on my lyrics blog. (Just a personal lyrics/chords archive.)
  3. Alicia Keys and Usher singing “If I Ain’t Got You.” A very nice song made even better with Usher’s wonderful voice.
  4. Duncan Shiek’s “Half-Life.”
    “Maybe, I need to see the daylight
    To leave behind this half-life
    Don’t you see I’m breaking down”
  5. Usher’s “Confessions.” Yes, the whole album.
  6. Bob Carlisle’s “Butterfly Kisses.” I don’t really know why, but I just realized last night how meaningful this song is.
  7. Tamia’s “Officially Missing You.”

So, what are your current music favorites? Share.

  1. Right now, I’m really digging Ashlee Simpson’s Autobiography. I’m probably going to get a lot of flack for this, but it truly is a great album.

    Also, The Killers’ Hot Fuss is catchy.

  2. im no longer up to date with new releases. latest picks, however, are:

    *bamboo’s “the pride and the flame”- light music, heavy lyrics (sounds like a personal song to bamboo m.).

    *duncan shiek’s “half-life”- huh?! wasn’t it obvious, markku?

    *system of a down- trip lang. nahawa sa officemate.

    in the last few hours ,however, i mused about annie lennox’ “love song for a vampire”. i wallowed in the quagmire of emotions that last time i heard it. every songbeat begets a heartbeat.

  3. i LOVE if i ain’t got you.
    it’s so passionate and powerful. putangina, i can so relate.
    sometimes i just pop in my iPod and loop that song and i start belting it out in the middle of edsa while driving then i burst out crying.

    let’s all watch alicia keys! on oct 9!
    and YES, usher in november. can.not.wait.

  4. I really dig the new “Confessions” album by Usher too, the entire album is really enjoyable.

    Taking back Sunday’s new album “Where you want to be” is a good one as well, I’ve got a review up on my blog.

    Although rather old, New Found Glory’s “Catalyst” album is quite amazing as well.

  5. Grace V, grabe ang tama sayo ng If I Ain’t Got You ah! Well, sa maraming tao naman ganun, it’s a really beautiful song. You don’t even have to be heartbroken to appreciate it, di ba? ;)

    Wow, sure na yung pupunta si Usher sa November? Gotta see that!

  6. an old song by Vonda… I ONLY WANT TO BE WITH YOU (?) and of course, am wondering how the song i posted in my blog goes…

  7. Throwback, Take A Bow (I’m sure you’re well aware of this. ;) hahaha!), Liwanag Sa Dilim!!!

  8. Trip mo rin pala si Usher. Ok din yung isa pang song nya w/ Alicia Keys (My Boo). Wow.. two concerts to wait for late this year. Astig.

  9. heya…nice blog

    -i love duncan shiek, i watched his concert alone. early bday gift for myself hehe
    -you should watch alicia’s concert next month!
    -“officially missin you” is my fave shower song. yowch.

    eeepp..singit lang. joey!!!

  10. And I dig your lyriclog by the way. Not only the idea, but also the design is great. (If I would have a lyriclog, I wouldn’t put date parts in lyric permalinks though — just a thought.)
