Music monday (on a tuesday): Soap.

The Voice is probably one of my favorite talent shows, and I like to sometimes rewatch the performances from past seasons. Recently, I fell down a rabbit hole of The Voice videos, googled where some of my favorites are now, and I stumbled upon Melanie Martinez and this song. It’s kind of a weird track,…

Music monday (on a wednesday): Help me out.

I haven’t heard of a new song from Maroon 5 for a while now (although I may just have been out of the music loop for years), so when I saw this track a few weeks ago on Spotify, I decided to give it a play–and I really liked what I heard. It fits well…

Music monday: Helium.

I first heard of this song when my best friend played over Spotify during a drive. I asked what the title was and who sang it, and made a mental note to check it out later on. I found the lyric video on Youtube, and I’m just fell in love with the track even more….

Music monday: START:DASH!!

So I spent the last week re-watching one of the most happy-go-lucky anime titles I’ve ever watched–Love Live! 😆 It’s a very entertaining show, and since it deals with being school idols (pop groups from certain high schools), there are a lot of super catchy songs. This one is the first one performed in the show,…

New books from #MIBF2017.

September 13 – 17 was this year’s Manila International Book Fair at the SMX Convention Center. It’s the biggest book event in the country, and I’ve never been able to check it out because of how far it is to where I live. This year though, I managed to finally go with two of my…

Music monday: Saturday night’s alright (for fighting).

We’re throwing back again today, although not entirely? This song is a really catchy and upbeat track released by Elton John in the 1970s. The reason this post isn’t completely a throwback is that this has come to surface through Kingsman: The Golden Circle. In my last post I talked about how I watched this film…

Music monday: Too good at goodbyes.

Around 3 years after releasing his first album, Sam Smith is back with a new song and a new album to come soon. I’m not quite sure how to pin this track, to be honest. I think it’s a sad song, and it is, but at the same time it depicts strength? Although it seems…

Music monday: 1-800-273-8255.

I saw this song on Spotify and wondered what song has a number for a title, and whether or not the number was real. I didn’t get to hear the track fully until this morning, but it struck me, and I’ve listened to it about two more times since. This song tackles a very important…

Music monday: Grammar nazi.

Many of us have heard this term before–it refers to people who are very critical when it comes to grammar–sticklers when it comes to the English language. This week, we’re going the indie route again with this quirky song that tackles this struggle. I find it to be really amusing, with its witty lyrics and…

Music monday: Ridin’ solo.

Let’s take a major throwback today. The past week has had me craving for music that I used to listen to when I was in high school (about seven years ago). So when I heard this song again on the radio, my brain just screamed YEEEEESSSS. So I noted it down on my phone and…

Music monday: Nocturnal.

I came across this song through my internship. I was tasked to write about this music video when it was released, so I spent quite a bit of time listening to and watching this. At some point it hit me–this song is so real. It’s such a dark song, but only in the sense that it…

Music monday: Cool down.

Happy Monday! I’ve been hearing this song on the radio for weeks now, and it was only recently that I caught its title and artist. When I found out it was by James Reid, I was pretty surprised. This kind of sound isn’t something I’m used to when it comes to OPM (Original Pilipino Music),…
