Luis Rabat, an Undiscovered Gem in Indie Pop

I discovered Luis Rabat through one of my musician friends, but the world has yet to know and listen to his spellbinding tracks that are worthy of worldwide recognition. Technology has made it possible for a lot of artists to create their music for a little fraction of what they’re earning. The emergence of DAW Recording Software like Ableton Live and Propellerhead Reason also paved … Continue reading Luis Rabat, an Undiscovered Gem in Indie Pop

Everything That’s Not Ironic in Alanis Morissette’s Hit Song and its Contrast

Alanis Morrissette’s Ironic is one of the hit songs during the 90s, and it’s in fact, the most popular one from the alternative pop princess. It’s been many years since I have learned what exactly “irony” was (after watching Reality Bites) and the song’s Irony has bugged me for years. I am finally able to write about it now after I was reminded of it … Continue reading Everything That’s Not Ironic in Alanis Morissette’s Hit Song and its Contrast

My Top 10 Most Favorite Tribute Songs for Mom

Happy Mother’s Day! This is one of the very few worldly celebrations that is worthy of being sensationalized. Most mothers have done their part and perhaps their best in raising their children, and what better way to thank them than celebrating their love for a day in a year (or maybe even more)? Whether our mothers have been a positive, negative, or indifferent instrument in … Continue reading My Top 10 Most Favorite Tribute Songs for Mom

Everyone is still Caught Up with D’Angelo’s “Untitled” after 20 Years Except the Philippines

I chanced upon a video of R&B singer Brandy singing along spontaneously to D’Angelo’s Untitled (How does it feel) while I was browsing my Twitter feed. I have caught myself being in the same situation a thousand times. Now it occurred to me that it is this year that the sexy track would celebrate its 20th anniversary, as well as D’Angelo’s seminal album, Voodoo. Untitled (How … Continue reading Everyone is still Caught Up with D’Angelo’s “Untitled” after 20 Years Except the Philippines

I’m still a Big Fan of the Nick and Jessica [Real] Loveteam

The Love month is about to end, but I won’t let it slip without featuring one of my favorite couples in the early 2000s, Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey. It’s been three weeks since Jessica released her memoir, Open Book, but it’s still making waves, as Jessica tells-it-all. According to the reviews, the book is just superb, with no holds barred. The release also coincided … Continue reading I’m still a Big Fan of the Nick and Jessica [Real] Loveteam

98°, our Favorite Soulful Boyband and the Songs We Want Them to Play in their Upcoming Ph Tour

98° was one of the boy bands that breakthrough during the mid-late 90s. But as a 90s boyband, they were a bit different from the rest. They didn’t dance; they mostly relied on their vocal abilities to serenade their fans. The members are also more masculine and “big” compared to other boy bands’ members. Most notably, they formed the group themselves, wrote their own songs, … Continue reading 98°, our Favorite Soulful Boyband and the Songs We Want Them to Play in their Upcoming Ph Tour

10 Sarah Geronimo Songs that Deserve your Attention, Other Than Tala

I have the worst case of last song syndrome to Sarah Geronimo’s Tala. Who doesn’t? Unless you’re an alien who never goes out of the basement, without an internet connection, your chances are very slim. Tala was released in 2015 and made waves, but it wasn’t until in December of last year when the hit song reached its tipping point after Sarah’s performance at the … Continue reading 10 Sarah Geronimo Songs that Deserve your Attention, Other Than Tala

Thank U, Ari. Looking Forward to Your Next!

I can’t contain it. I just really love this girl, Ariana! As an older millennial (okay I admit it), I grew up listening to bubble pop, mellow, boyband and girlband pop, grunge, soul, and r&b. That’s farfetched from all the EDM tunes and even the synth-pop, electronic/soul haze, and folk-pop music that is currently dominating pop music. This trend makes me deviate from what usual … Continue reading Thank U, Ari. Looking Forward to Your Next!
