In time to fill the void of a date-less Valentine’s Day. Or you just want to listen to some sad songs—who cares?
The nation is a few hours away from Valentine’s Day—or Single Awareness Day, depending on where you stand. But whether or not you need music to keep you company or just to pass the time, there is some comfort in knowing a few hundred souls are listening to the same tunes you are. So sit back, relax and enjoy with a few of your #hugot classmates this year.
Versace On The Floor is currently the country’s most popular track. Quickly becoming a Bruno Mars classic, the lyrics serve as reminder that no one is going to be appreciating that cute little outfit you have on tomorrow night. That is, except the most important person to impress: Yourself.
#Hugot line: ‘There’s no place I’d rather be in this world/ Your eyes are where I’m lost in”
One particularly distinctive song playing around Manila at this point is A Love To Last A Lifetime by Juris. The track, which is the theme song to A Love To Last starring Bea Alonzo and Ian Veneracion, talks about giving someone such a strong kind of love that it will stay with them forever.
#Hugot line: “As for me there’s only one dream/ And that’s to love you, my love/ With a love to last a lifetime”
On the other hand, those in Makati are keeping up with an OPM classic from Sponge Cola, Jeepney. Who hasn’t belted out the lyrics to this heartbreaking ballad about losing the love you once had? No one.
#Hugot line: “O ang kahapon ay naroon pa rin/ Tawa nati’y humahalay/ Sa init nating dalawa/ Subalit ngayo’y wala na/ Ikaw ay lumayo na”
San Juan residents are feeling it with Iñigo Pascual’s upbeat Dahil Sa ‘Yo. The song focuses on the promises made to a significant other, which may or may not relatable to all of us. Nevertheless, the upbeat tempo will get you believing in that kind of love.
#Hugot line: Gagawin ko and lahat para lang sayo sinta/Basta’t nandito ka ako’y liligaya
Meanwhile, those in Quezon City are slowing things down with Hanggang Kailan from Michael Pangilinan. Talk about the pain of heartbreak from a love lost to another—this one is sure to hit home with those yearning for a previous love.
#Hugot line: Tanggap ko ayo’y muling masasaktan/ Pagdurusa sa piling mo’y pagdaraanan/ Ang tanging tanong ko lang/ Hanggang kalian?
