After seeing Steffi’s article regarding the 30 day blogging challenge (you may check her blog here https://steffiandhercoffee.wordpress.com/2018/10/01/intro-day-1-%e2%99%a1-30-day-blogging-challenge-your-blogs-name/ ), I also thought of trying it for myself. Unfortunately, with all the deadlines I have in my schedule, I am pretty sure that writing a blog everyday may be impossible for me to accomplish.
Her blog gave me so much idea about other interesting topics that I can share with you, dear readers. Well, the idea really came from Pinterest but it was Steffi’s blog that made me realize I could use the said social media platform to see what else I can write about.
So I am going to share with you the last 3 songs that I randomly listened to on Spotify. I chose the playlist that compiles all songs I used to listen to when I was still in High School and College.
First Random Song:
My Immortal – Evanescence
This is a song that I used to sing back in college, and if my memory serves me right, I sang this song during our Psyche Cell activity (annual gathering of Psychology Major students).
When I first heard My Immortal, I thought that it was some sort of a breakup song, but when I listened carefully to its lyrics, I realized that it is about someone who is unable to recover from his/her grief at someone’s death, and that someone still feels all memories they had together, but realizes afterwards that he/she is now alone.
Here are few lines of the song:
🎶I’ve tried so hard to tell myself that you’re gone
But though you’re still with me
I’ve been alone all along.🎶
Oh and by the way, I also love singing this song in videoke. I feel like it’s perfect for my voice (Just sharing. lol!).
Second Random Song:
More Than Words – Extreme
I bet you are very much familiar with this song. I included this in my playlist because this was one of the first songs I learned to play in the guitar.
“Action speaks louder than words”. The song, from the title itself “More Than Words”, is sending a message about the importance of showing affection and emotions, through your action. Doing this will make your partner feel more loved. Although words are also important, we all have to remember that just saying “I love you” will never be enough. We also have to exert an effort in making our loved one feel that he/she means a lot to us.
Here are the first few lines of the song:
🎶Saying I love you
Is not the words I want to hear from you
It’s not that I want you
Not to say, but if you only knew
How easy it would be to show me how you feel
More that words is all you have to do to make it real
Then you wouldn’t have to say that you love me
‘Cause I’d already know🎶
Third Random Song:
Miss U – Grin Department
Honestly, this band used to be one of my favorites when I was in High School. I knew them because my siblings grabbed a copy of their album( it was still a tape ’cause CDs were not yet existing that time) and they kept playing it eveyday until I memorized the lyrics of all their songs.
Miss U is about a guy a who was mesmerized by the beauty of a girl in the jeepney he was also riding, and because he couldn’t let his eyes off her, he thought of catching her attention. The guy felt overjoyed when the girl finally noticed him. Unfortunately in the end, when the girl left the jeepney, he realized that he forgot to introduce himself and asked for the girl’s name and contact number.
Here are few lines of the song:
🎶Isa lang po ang aking problema
Kung paano ko sya makikilala
Eh pumara ang jeep, sumakay si lola
Eh puno na pala
Kahit di ko gawain, ako’y
napilitan, “lola dito ka na”
Nang ako’y nakasabit na bigla
Ang bulong niya baka ka madisgrasya
Ako’y na shock sa caring nya
Ako’y na schock kasi concerm siya
Pumalakpak ang aking tenga
Plak, plak, plak, ang sabi ng aking tenga🎶
Think that the song has a sad ending? Nah! It was actually fun to listen to. After everything that happened, the guy also realized that he forgot to pay for his fare so he could’t run after the girl because he ended up running away from the jeepney driver.
🎶 Nakalimutan kong itanong pangalan nya, tirahan nya
Nakalimutan kong isulat phone number nya o beeper number nya
Nakalimutan kong sabihin pangalan ko at ang bayan ko
Nakalimutan ko nakalimutan ko nakalimutan ko pati bayad ko🎶
That’s it for tonight. I had fun doing this blog. It didn’t just make me happy, but it also brought back a lot of good memories of my teenage days.
