It’s not too late to add our Top 10 Songs of the Week (February 9-15) to your playlists!
It’s Friday everyone and that means it’s time for a recap of the songs that made it to our Top 10 Songs of the Week (February 9-15)! As usual, every Friday we give you the full run-down of our Top 10 Songs of the Week. And we know you’re just itching to get your hands on some top-shelf OPM music. So here’s the official line up of the songs that made it on our Top 10 Weekly!
1. Rebound by This Band
The first song on our Top 10 Songs of the Week is for all the marupok and martyrs out there, ‘Rebound’ by This Band is really the song for you! Have you ever been with someone who just got out of a relationship? You fall in love with the person, they claim they feel the same, but you’re pretty sure they are still caught up with their ex. Still, you take a leap only to fall headfirst when you realize you’re just a rebound. Ouch.
2. Ang Pinagmulan by IV of Spades
At first listen, ‘Ang Pinagmulan’ by IV of Spades sounds like something that would be playing at a Disco in the 80s. It has a funky vibe that’s also a little psychedelic. And we were immediately caught in its wave. But if you listen to it a little closer, we do hear some inadvertent messages relating to Christianity. But that’s just our take, let us know what you think ‘Ang Pinagmulan’ by IV of Spades is all about. It was released just last February 7 and is available on YouTube and Spotify. So give ‘Ang Pinagmulan’ by IV of Spades a listen today!
3. Patawad by Moira Dela Torre
This new single from Moira Dela Torre entitled ‘Patawad’ is like an open letter to a lost love. It was just released this February 7. And honestly, listening to it feels wrong. Because it’s so intimate and raw, that it feels invasive to listen. But we can’t pull away either, because we’re absolutely hooked. It’s a song that details the regrets, the inevitable coldness, and the yearning to say goodbye and forgive. It definitely makes it to our songs-to-ugly-cry-t0 playlist! Listen to ‘Patawad’ by Moira Dela Torre, you won’t regret it!
4. Naubos Na by Oh, Flamingo!
There is a special room in our hearts for songs that talk about societal issues. And ‘Naubos Na’ by Oh, Flamingo! discusses one that’s close to the hearts of Filipino youths everywhere.
You see, as Filipinos, it’s inherent within us to value our parents’ opinions. But our Filipino parents often don’t listen to what we want. Especially if it’s a career in the music or arts path. And this is our two cents on the matter, but we have a strong feeling that when Oh, Flamingo! sings:
Ano ba talaga
Ano ba ang halaga?
Ako ba o sila
Sinong mas halaga?
They’re trying to figure out if they should listen to their parents’ opinions or their own. Yes, it’s important to listen to your parents’ advice. But if you just follow blindly you’ll end up feeling empty.
5. Takdang Aralin by Gloc-9
This is definitely a must-listen and will humble and ground you if you listen hard enough. So listen to ‘Takdang Aralin’ by Gloc-9 today!
6. New Season by Sabu
Growing up in a Christian community, Sabu goes back to her roots with her latest release ‘New Season’. Shining light on her faith and perseverance despite the hards times and obstacles—her soothing yet upbeat song’s goal is to bring light to the listeners. An inspiration to go on by holding on to the people you love when you are lost in the dark.
7. Hangganan by 647
We know it’s Valentine’s Day, and we should be concentrating on celebrating love. But as there are two sides to every coin, love also cannot exist without heartbreak. And ‘Hangganan’ by 647 is indeed a song about heartbreak and endings. But at the same time, it’s also a song about second chances. So if you find yourself in a situation where you’re completely broken, but at the same time, you’re not sure if you want to give up completely—this is the song you need to hear right now!
As they say, “we always hurt the ones we love.” And have you ever hurt someone so much, or been hurt by someone so much, that you just wish you could just go back to the beginning, and start over? Then give ‘Hangganan’ by 647 a listen today!
8. Wait by Just Matthew
The perfect playlist always consists of some balance, and this week bringing the fire is ‘Wait’ by Just Matthew! It was released just last February 7th. So you know it’s the freshest banger on the block! So if you need something to sway your hips to this weekend, look no further! And you don’t need to wait either, listen to ‘Wait’ by Just Matthew today! And don’t forget to add it to your party playlists either!
9. Sandali by Pusakalye
‘Sandali’ by PusaKalye basically speaks of how you can’t utter what you’re feeling towards the person, so you opt to make them feel it through your actions.
‘Di na kailangan magsalita
Yayakapin na lang kita
At sa atin ang gabi
At sa atin ang bawat
Pushing someone to tell them how they actually feel for a person is easier said than done, we all know that. It’s easier to leave some things unsaid because we are afraid of what will happen if we do so. But we must always remember that it’s better off taking a risk despite the consequences than to live your life always asking “What if?”.
10. Wala Ka Na by Michael Dutchi Librada
This next song, returning for a second time on our Top 10 Songs of the Week is a bit painful. Okay, it’s a lot painful. ‘Wala Ka Na’ by Michael Dutchi Libranda is a song about that specific time in a breakup, where everything just comes crashing down. And you start to realize everything that you’ve lost, and all the things that have to change. All because “Wala ka na” or “You’re gone”.
So if you need something to cry to, this is a good song that’ll pinch your heart and keep the tears flowing. And this we know for a fact because we aren’t even hurting and yet we feel the pain. So listen to ‘Wala Ka Na’ by Michael Dutchi Libranda.
