MIXTAPE: JANUARY 25-31.2011
Mid-January mornings make me forget I am living on the tropical side of the planet. These days of the year might perhaps be the closest thing to winter Manila would have. Ironically, things have been picking up and getting a lot more upbeat despite the descent of temperature. I feel perky these days, which probably explains why my music set this week picks up a lighter, breezier tempo. The inevitable melodrama tunes, are of course, still perfect for days I need some cheering up on; making my list a weird concoction of high-strung and heavy stuff. What songs are you abusing lately?
10. “It matters to me”, Jason Castro You don’t have to dry your eyes Let’s be weak for a little while Listen out and save tonight for memory And kiss me while the candles glow It’s almost time for me to go 9. “Alice Practice”, Crystal Castles scars, i’m chopping dagger see you’ll never walk only stagger. sad eyes 8. “Flume”, Bon Ivler Only love is all maroon Gluey feathers on a flume Sky is womb and she’s the moon I am my mother on the wall, with us all I move in water, shore to shore; Nothing’s more 7. “Words meet heartbeats”, Parachute Well I’d go house to house and knock on every door I’d take down all the walls and tear up every floor Just to figure out, oh what we’re fighting for And all I can do is sit and let the air speak for you 6. “Dreaming wide awake”, Poets of the fall Another place and time, without a warning sign And we could be dying angels high I’ll sell my soul to dream you wide awake I’ll dream you, I’ll dream you, I’ll dream you wide awake 5.”Two for my seconds,” Operator Please and it’s so, it’s fantastic mesmerize by memory childhood thoughts can’t comfort me in this house of mine 4. “Strange color Blue”, Madrugada Blue Strange colour blue Sixteen tons on the moon Hey little mister driver man Keep your head up We are nearly there I am racing Outside and below myself 3. “Rocketeer”, Far East Movement Where we go we don’t need roads, roads Where we stop nobody knows, knows To the stars if you really want it Got, got a jetpack with your name on it 2. “Execution of all things”, Rilo Kiley And lastly, you’re all alone with nothing left but sleep. But sleep never comes to you, it’s just the guilt and forever Wakefulness of the weak It’s just you and me. 1. “Your love is a song”, Switchfoot With my eyes wide open
I’ve got my eyes wide open
I’ve been keeping my hopes unbroken
