It’s not too late to add our Top 10 Songs of the Week (February 2-8) 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 2-8)! 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. 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?”.
2. Wala Ka Na by Michael Dutchi Libranda
The second song 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.
3. Nadine (Morena Girl) by Bobby Skyz and Sam Mangubat
It seems like songs like these kinds of songs are starting to become a trend! First, there was ‘Catriona’ by Matthaios, then ‘Pia’ by BLYMLDT, and then there was ‘Ivana’ by Soulstice. And now we have ‘Nadine (Morena Girl)’ by Bobby Skyz and Sam Mangubat. And if it wasn’t obvious enough, the song celebrates the inherent Filipina trait of being “morena” or brown and tan-skinned women. So of course, the current it-girl that holds the “proud morena” badge is none-other than Nadine Lustre, which we assume who this song is about. I mean, who else, right?
Here’s a little fun fact! ICYDK, using names of people for song titles has been done before. And it was especially big in the 60s, 70s, and 80s. Like ‘Jolene’ by Dolly Parton, ‘Billie Jean’ by Michael Jackson, and ‘Aubrey’ by Bread.
So give ‘Nadine (Morena Girl)’ by Bobby Skyz and Sam Mangubat a listen today!
4. DKL (Di Ko Alam) by Miss Ramonne
This one goes out to all those confused hearts out there. As you all know Valentine’s Day is almost here, and we’re pretty sure there are a lot of you who are floating in that grey area between dating and just flirting. And ‘DKL (Di Ko Alam)’ by Miss Ramonne is about falling unexpectedly in love after being out of the game for a while, and you just don’t know what to do.
And that’s why we love ‘DKL (Di Ko Alam)’ by Miss Ramonne. It’s relatable and it’s real. It discusses the issue that a lot of people are too afraid to communicate. And that’s to say that they’re confused, or that they’re not ready. Because they’re afraid you’ll think they’re not taking you seriously. But sometimes that’s all there is, you just don’t know.
5. Nothing’s The Same by Underclass
We’ve all been there, a breakup that just makes you want to scream until your lungs give out. But lucky for you, we’ve got just the song that’s perfect to scream to, ‘Nothing’s The Same’ by Underclass!
So we don’t know about you, but Underclass heavily reminds us of Simple Plan. And we’re loving it! It definitely brings back all those angsty teenage years, when we thought we actually knew what heartbreak was. And here comes ‘Nothing’s The Same’ by Underclass with the same kind of energy. And it just makes us want to sing along, shouting at the top of our lungs:
You say you love me,
but then you leave me once again!
You say you love me,
but I hate you!
6. Reserba by Callalily
No need for a “hugot” music video concept with this already heartbreaking single. Just great production and all-out performance! Check out the MV of ‘Reserba’ by Callalily now!
‘Reserba’ by Callalily was released last year and broke our hearts. Whether or not you can relate to the song, it can definitely give your emotions a nudge. It talks of how you invested your feelings, time, and trust to someone only for you to realize that they don’t feel the same. To make it worse, you find out that they’re with someone else, realizing you were just an option.
7. No Rush by Kiana Valenciano and Billy Davis
It’s not easy to pull off a song that qualifies both as easy listening and danceable bop. And yet, Kiana Valenciano pulls it off effortlessly. So if you want something that goes down smooth, listen to ‘No Rush’ by Kiana Valenciano and Billy Davis.
As they say, “You can’t rush good things.” So take it easy, and listen to the sweet timbre of Kiana Valenciano’s vocals. And pair it down with a bass line that makes your hips sway with the rhythm. Give ‘No Rush’ by Kiana Valenciano and Billy Davis a listen! Trust us, you won’t regret it. But you know, no rush.
8. Blanko by Janella Salvador
Have you ever experienced a love so strong that your mind just goes blank when you think of them? And nothing occupies your mind except the thought of them. Every minute of every day you think about how their day must be going, or have they eaten yet.
Well if you have, you’ll definitely be able to relate to ‘Blanko’ by Janella Salvador. It’s the kind of song that makes the love you feel for a person increase ten-fold. And it makes thinking about them that much better. Better yet, why not send them the song and let them know you’re thinking about them.
9. Chinita by Raf Davis, Nik Makino, and M$tryo
Could this be a tribute to Nik Makino’s girlfriend, who just happens to be chinita? What do you think? But regardless if that were true or not, we definitely get why guys like chinita girls. Because if you haven’t noticed, Asian boys are definitely the type most Filipinas would go for these days. Especially when they’re as handsome as Lee Jongsuk, Cha Eun Woo, or Nam Joo Hyuk!
But just in case you didn’t know what chinita or chinito means, it’s a term used for people who have stereotypical small Asian eyes. ‘Chinita’ by Raf Davis, Nik Makino, and M$tryo has a vibe we can definitely ride with. So give it a listen today!
10. Sabay by One Click Straight
And for the second week in a row on our Top 10 Songs of the Week, ‘Sabay’ by One Click Straight! ‘Sabay’ is one of the tracks from their recently released EP ‘Harana Coma’. Along with four other songs, namely ‘Nag-iisa’, ‘Manila’, ‘Bitaw’, and ‘Paraiso’.
We really resonate with ‘Sabay’ by One Click Straight because it seems to be an internal dialogue. We can say with confidence that everyone has their own inner demons that they fight. And the first verse feels very similar to when you quiet your thoughts of sadness, as if in a reprimanding tone. And we really relate to that.
But then by the chorus, it turns uplifting. And when they sing “di kayang mag-hiwalay ang pusong sabay-sabay.” That can be translated to, “you can’t separate hearts that beat as one.” And this is just our opinion but we feel like what they’re trying to convey is that when you find people who feel and hurt the way you do, friends who can understand your pain, is when you can finally heal. So, “sana wag kang bumitaw,” or, don’t let go.
Add these to your Spotify playlists now!
