Friday is the (best) day of the week where we get to relax and let off those steam from our usual busy work or school life. Here at #MusicFriday, we’ll be bringing you to our colorful world full of friendship, love, hope, laughter and sometimes, tears, through the music we listen to. We’ll be doing this every Friday just for the fun and the love of music.
This Friday, we offer you our Hey Crush playlist, for those of us who has a crush at work, school or in the neighborhood. We want to share those feel good moments of crushing on someone, with you.
Without further ado, here’s our Hey Crush playlist:
Savage Garden – I Knew I Loved You
England Dan and John Ford Coley – I’d Really Love to See You Tonight
Mastodon is the new social networking site that rocked the Internet for these past half month. But what’s different about Mastodon is that Mastodon is open-source. It means that the code is available for everyone to use, and people can make their own Mastodon servers as alternative platforms, which are called “instances.”
Like Twitter, you can post statuses/messages and pictures in Mastodon. But instead of 140, Mastodon’s character limit is 500. And a feature that I love most, the “CW” or Content Warning, for spoilers, NSFWs and stuff.
Another great thing I found interesting about Mastodon is that you can interact with people even when they’re from different servers. There’s a “Local timeline” where you can find the toots (or posts) of people in the same server as you, and a “Federated timeline” where you can see toots from across all of the Mastodon instances.
If you’re tired of spammers, troll, and bullshit from Twitter, you might wanna try being on Mastodon.
We listed down a few hit songs from the 80s to 90s that became popular in the Philippines. You might remember some of these from your childhood too, like we did!
Here’s our list! I hope you enjoy them as much as we have been reminiscing our childhood with them.
1. Neocolors – Tuloy Pa Rin
That theme song from the Humpy Dumpy chips commercial.
2. Fra Lippo Lippi – Light and Shade
This Norweigian band is really popular back in the 80s with their other songs too such as “Stiches and Burns”, “Everytime I See You”, and “Beauty and Madness”. Besides their own country, Philippines is proably the only other country they’ve gained massive popularity.
3. 4 Non Blondes – What’s Up
What’s Up is the only hit single from the American band 4 Non Blondes. After a year of it hitting the charts, they disbanded.
4. Bon Jovi – Bed of Roses
For some reason, there was a time in our childhood where every single neighbor we have sings this song in the streets or in Karaoke.
5. Take That – Back for Good
The song ypu often hear at the coffee shop near your school.
6. Barbie’s Cradle – Tabing Ilog
Yeah, that theme song from the TV series with the same name – Tabing Ilog. Kind of a copy of Dawson’s Creek, but local.
7. Globe – Feel Like Dance
Feel Like Dance is the debut hit single of the Japanese band Globe. At that time, they were a really popular band and topped Oricon charts single after single.
8. Pizzicato Five – Sweet Soul Revue
Back in the early 90’s, you probably hear this song often at a TV commercial. Sweet Soul Revue was used by the Kanebo Cosmetics for their spring campaign back then and it became a hit in the country for several weeks.
9. Passage – You Wont See Me Crying
You often hear this song on the radio back then and you’ve always wondered who sang the song. Well, Passage is the same band that sang the heartbreaking song ‘Till My Heartaches End that’s a main stay in probably every 90s kid’s OPM Sawi/Hugot Playlist.
10. Sugar Hiccup – Five Years
That creepy but super awesome song you play over and over!
So, what or who are these “toxic” people? Toxic people comes in several types – there are those who are arrogant, self-absorbed, manipulative, judgmental, gossiper, temperamental, full of negativity, and the type who always thinks he’s a victim.
During gathering and/or drinking sessions of common friends, these people most probably take 50% of the gossip topic. And it’s not even something people wanted to talk about, but still do just to let out some of the steam.
These people are emotionally draining and increases stress. They are like the Nazgul from The Lord of the Rings series. They literally suck out your energy – mind, body and soul.
