Top 14 Tracks of 2014

While 2014 was a year of me visually and emotionally experiencing life no less than life itself, there were certain instances when spending afternoons and those wee hours drowning with the good grace of the sound of music was still the best thing there is. And as this blog’s annual yearend tradition, I sifted through the goldmine of rarities and obscure finds once again to come up with this list of the best tracks that came out this year (at least according to my ever reliable taste, lol). My pc unfortunately crashed towards this year’s last quarter, hence, unlike the previous years (2010, 2011, 2012a, 2012b, 2013) in which the ranks were based on each track’s total number of plays on my iTunes player, this list will simply rely on my ever reliable ability to remember which among those tracks have accumulated the most play time. So, Here then is the list of the 14 of the most substantial pieces of my 2014, alphabetically arranged.

1. All Of The Stars – Ed Sheeran. Fvck John Green, there’s no fault in our stars, just metaphors and complex things we don’t understand.

2. Arsonist’s Lullaby – Hozier. Thank heavens there’s Hozier.

3. A Step You Can’t Take Back – Keira Knightley. This Begin Again shit effortlessly haunts like a beating heart, it’s hard to get pass it.

4. Bakuran – Johnoy Danao feat. Aiza Seguerra. Heartfelt retelling of that classic tale on the controversial thin fine line separating friendship and romance, and all the other gray spots in between.

5. Cenuries – Fall Ou Boy. Totally out of the box, yet largely entertaining.

6. Diwata – Abra feat. Chito Miranda. Other than the fact that the MV was shoot at UPLB with Nicole Asensio, assuming the role of Maria Makiling, there’s so much lovable about the track itself, including all the underlying meanings between the lines.

7. Ikaw – Yeng Constantino. This track single-handedly deflates the argument about the questionable existence of forever.

8. Lost Stars – Adam Levine. Can’t remember any Adam Levine shit I ever liked til this one.

9. Mahal Ko O Mahal Ako – KZ Tandingan. It bagged the highest award during Himig Handog 2014, enough said.

10. Rude – MAGIC!. Bandwagon anyone? No. Used to love this track 319m Youtube views ago.

11. Seasons (Waiting On You) – Future Islands. Perhaps the most heartwarming romantic tale of despair for 2014.

12. Sabado – Eraserheads. Nostalgia. Artifacts of childhood memories, heartaches, highschool dramas, summer trips – rolled into one then put to sound.

13. Take Me To Church – Hozier. A bleakly deviant track which is an abrasive approach of presenting bunch of irony, inequality, and toxicity of life caged by the society’s faulty standards

14. Thinking Out Loud – Ed Sheeran. It’s Ed Sheeran afterall.

The Top 12 Songs of 2012 (Part 1)


I’m going home in a few hours. For the past few days, it felt like I don’t belong anywhere. It’s quite lonely, to be honest. But I don’t want to further stretch on this. Because if I do, I’ll get myself like your old underwear―I’ll fall down on the job. So, before finally taking that treasured trip later, I’m giving you a glimpse of what my ears are glued to for the outgoing year. Again, the roll is plainly based on the number of plays for each single on my playlist. My playlist. My. (For last year’s list, click here.)

12. Lego House – Ed Sheeran (40 plays). A for the accent.

11. Anything Could Happen – Ellie Goulding (44 plays). This is unexpected. 

10. XGF – Sponge Cola feat. Chito Miranda & Los Magno (45 plays). Probably, this song never earned the fame it deserves.

9. Gayuma – Abra feat. Jeriko Aguilar & Thyro (49 plays). Ngunit di ko maipaliwanag.

8. Strange Attractor – Animal Kingdom (50 plays). Strangely attractive. 

7. Some Nights – fun. (53 plays). Because some nights are fun. nights

I’ll work on the rest of this list as soon as I get home. Any guesses on the top 6 so far?

Some opinions expressed in this site might not suit your taste. Sure there are tons of tpyo, speling, andgramming errors. Well I never claimed to be perfect nor close to being an English teacher which gives me the right to commit these mistakes. Btw, thanks for dropping by.
