  1. hahaha! Natawa naman ako dun sa “Shooting at the walls of heartache, bang bang. I am the warrior” I can see how you would find that ridiculously stupid… hehe. 🙂

  2. galing! eclectic yet full of classics. i’m curious tuloy to check out those i’m not familiar with.

    ‘in my life’ is one of my all-time favorites, and i’m happy to discover someone else likes ‘running on empty’!

    i’m looking forward to your “i’m glad i didn’t write” post! although, i’m embarrassed to admit, i would always sing along to the warrior, hehehe.

  3. Bigla akong nag-isip. Ako ba ano ang mangyayari kung gagawa ng ganitong listahan. Bigla kong naisip, mahihirapan ako kasi di ako makapag-decide kung ano talaga ang gusto ko e. Atsaka pabagu-bago pihado ang listahan ko. Kaya wag na lang. Magkakasya na lang ako sa pagbasa ng mga paborito nyong lahat.

    Tulad na lang ng title nito, Songs in the key of life… Yan ang pinakapaborito kong double album ni Stevie Wonder. Wala na kong makitang ganito. Sa palagay ko ay lutang na lutang ang pagiging boy wonder ni Stevie dito. Musically, ang ganda. Tulad na lang nung Knocks me off my feet. Atsaka yung Too shy to say. Sinong makakaisip ng tono using the chromatic scale? Galing di ba?
