It’s not too late to add our Top 10 Songs of the Week (November 3-9) 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 (November 3-9)! 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. Masyado Pang Maaga by Ben&Ben
Simply put, this song is heartbreak put finely in poetry. It discusses the pain of trying to fix a relationship that eventually ends up in vain.
Moreover, it shows some common struggles that couples experience – miscommunication and a never-ending conflict on each other’s faults. The song is wonderful, and once again the vocals of the Miguel and Paolo Guico shine beautifully. Through their voices, you would be able to feel the pain and the emotions contained within the song, and it is just phenomenal.
Overall, the whole band just really seems to be in harmony. Again, Masyado Pang Maaga is another OPM masterpiece. Thank you for this, Ben & Ben!
2. ‘Di Sapat Pero Tapat by This Band
‘Di Sapat Pero Tapat’ really hits hard. Because this kind of situation really happens in real life, that sometimes the love that you give is not enough for the person you love. And there’s nothing you can do but accept it.
But remember guys, when you give your all to a person and it still isn’t enough, you’re probably giving it to the wrong one. So if you’re ready to accept that the one you love isn’t happy with you anymore, give ‘Di Sapat Pero Tapat’ by This Band a listen right now!
3. Paruparo by Syd Hartha
Syd Hartha continues to wow us with another thought-provoking track, entitled ‘Paruparo’. There really is something to say about how clear her diction is, and how she encapsulates what OPM should be, ideally. But about her newest song ‘Paruparo’, not only is it a catchy song but it also tackles the concept of freedom of speech. And it serves as a reminder to all to watch what we say. Just because we can say something, doesn’t always mean we should. Listen to Syd Hartha’s ‘Paruparo’ right now!
4. Warrior by Lions and Acrobats
What we think of it is that Warrior talks about a toxic relationship. Probably, it may even specifically signify a manipulative one. Because based on the lyrics above, the singer is actually telling his loved one to stop appealing to him. Perhaps, it may be because of an endless tiring cycle of faults and arguments that will just repeat again and again. After all, these can just make them sick, tired, and even more disappointed with each other.
Overall, we really like ‘Warrior’ though and how it brings out our anger towards the pain that comes hand-in-hand with love. Moreover, the part where they just scream “I’m scared” really got to us. So hey, to the people who hurt us before, don’t you dare come back just to hurt us once again!
5. No. 32 by Nadine Lustre and Ruby Ibarra
As it seems, Nadine Lustre has it all – beauty, a good figure, a sweet boyfriend, and talent. With the recent celebration of her 26th birthday, we are just faced with the realization that God really has his favorites.
But aside from that, she has dropped a track titled ‘No 32’ which is in collaboration with Filipino-American rapper, Ruby Ibarra. Of course, it was released under Careless PH.
Nadine took to Instagram to announce the release of her collaboration with Ruby Ibarra. Titled ‘No 32’, this song is just perfect to dance to, perhaps with a few shots of alcohol.
6. Alon by Aly Remulla
A song about the acceptance of a breakup has never been this poetically beautiful. ‘Alon’ by Aly Remulla is the post-breakup song you never knew you needed. And as its title suggest, it will surely make you long for the embrace of the ocean waves.
Whether or not this is true for you, for us, there is just something about the ocean that is so therapeutic. Maybe it’s the coming and the going of the tide, as it washes away your footprints in the sand. That to us says, “this too shall pass.” And maybe that’s why a lot of us seek refuge on the shores of beaches when we need a break from life.
7. Cotton Candy by Arthur Nery
There’s no denying that Arthur Nery’s voice is beautifully commanding. While listening, he just soothed me and made me crumble into a small ball of feelings and longing. Eventually, I just succumbed and closed my eyes to enjoy the music.
‘Cotton Candy’ is one of our favorites from his ‘Letters Never Set Album’, as it starts differently. Having a cute intro with funky sounds, it also stands out from the others. We especially love how it’s a little more upbeat, summoning a few dance moves from us here and there.
Plus Arthur Nery singing to you lyrics like, “I want you under my sheets.” What more could you ask for?
8. Fingers Crossed by Carousel Casualties
“Fingers Crossed and Tongue Tied” is exactly how we feel about this song. We can’t just place exactly how we feel about it, all we know is that we love it! ‘Fingers Crossed’ by Carousel Casualties features a boppy melody and fun guitar riffs that will surely make you jump up and down. But also sings lyrics like “I am just a fool for you baby.” So why don’t you let us know what you think of it?
9. Sana by St. Wolf
St. Wolf is giving us more of their signature Swabecore sound, they have an eclectic mix of electro-synth vibes in their new song ‘Sana’. Again they show us their superb skills, with perfectly blended instrumentals and powerful vocals. ‘Sana’ or “hoping” in English, is exactly that, a song about hoping for love. If you’re looking for a song that’s as intense as how you feel, look no further than ‘Sana’ by St. Wolf.
10. Sumama Ka Sakin by Up For Byes
Up For Byes stays true to their sound as an alternative pop-rock band, with their latest single ‘Sumama Ka Sakin’, as it will surely make you want to come along with them. They’ve caught our hearts once again with their unique mix of poetry and music. ‘Sumama Ka Sakin’ at first listen may seem simple but make no mistake that there is a beautiful meaning underneath the alluring melody. Listen to ‘Sumama Ka Sakin’ right now!
