Top 5 At The Moment

A music post after a long while is just what I need this week! I’ve decided to include a weekly set of entries called “Top 5 ATM” that features my top 5 songs ‘at the moment’ and I’ll be posting two entries per week with this—one completely anything-goes-under-the-sun entry and another top 5 ATM entry that would feature a weekly theme. This is an idea that I got from a Livejournal community (I forgot the name) I used to belong to during my Livejournal days and it was where everyone shared their top 5 songs at the moment and it was a good platform to discuss music and discover new favorites.

I think it would be a great way to introduce and rediscover music to everyone . I do encourage active participation and with that I mean commenting, recommended, asking questions or making suggestions 🙂 Besides, I really missed doing my random cathartic music-related posts and making playlists every now and then. I’m going to bring it back this year and hopefully be consistent about it.

1. Truth by Bloc Party

“You complete me/ Our kind is hard to find/ And if it will be/ It will be with you/ I am yours now”

Bloc Party is coming here in Manila on March 22 and I don’t have any money to buy tickets. Good lord, I feel like crying. This track is beyond gorgeous.  It’s clean, simple, intimate and just bleeds with human emotion. Check out their most recent album Four following an extended hiatus and it’s a great return for a great band. The album is dark, hard hitting with a fantastic flow of down-tuned sounds to an edgier variety of rhythm.  Keep up the good work lads!

The Love Song Mix

It’s almost that time of the year again. I don’t care much for what happens on February 14/Valentine’s Day and honestly I think that sometimes it puts a little too much pressure on everyone, couples and single people alike. Although I do think it’s nice when you receive something from someone, whether it’s a friend, schoolmate, colleague, relative or from your immediate family. But even without that extra something, it doesn’t mean you’ll be forever alone throughout the rest of the year and the next year or the year after. I’m not trying to be mean but I just don’t understand why this tradition brings everyone else’s complaints about being “lonely” to a whole new level.

Instead of spoiling the opportunity you have to be happy by being bitter and whiny, channel that negativity to something positive. I think by starting that way, it would change negative perceptions about this certain time of year.

That aside, I’m going to show a person how much I my appreciation is in this post. Songs are fantastic for things like this, yes? Some of my favorite love songs are all here and it just feels right to share them. Le good kind of cheese.

Hello P 🙂
