100 Songs That Could Change Your Life

31 05 2009

headphonesI got this idea from Baddie’s awesome blog entry, and reading Ade’s version of it kinda clinched the deal. Granted, my musical taste (or the lack of it, depending on your point of view) seems somewhat boring and cheesy compared to most people but what the hell, I thought I’d take a crack at it. At the very least, I guess my future kids could say their Dad had a pretty diverse taste in music.

So without further ado, here is my own version of Baddie’s 100 Songs To Save Your Life:

ang hirap mag-isip ng 100 songs…masyadong marami akong naiisip

31 05 2009

IKR. I actually thought the hard part wuld be reaching a hundred. Before I stopped putting in songs and trimmed this down I had close to a hundred and fifty!

31 05 2009

Since you have Maroon 5’s Sunday Morning on this list, I trust your taste in music. I’mma download the songs that still aren’t in my collection. High five!

Oh I din’t really advertise it on my old blog yet. I was trying to fill it up first with more content. 😀

31 05 2009

This list is made up of awesome.

Also you don’t have “what? no [insert artist name]?” commenters here, unlike in my blog, thank god. If they don’t like the fact that I didn’t include their favorite artist, they should just make their own list.

Awesome list as well! I saw some songs I wanna try out. Thanks!

Space Cowboy by Jamiroquai was the one that resonated with me. In fact of their work has been pretty good. I recently ran across some concert stuff on youtube. They are great LIVE!!!!

Hey! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird when viewing from my apple iphone. I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to resolve this issue. If you have any recommendations, please share. Appreciate it!

Wow thats an awesome list. I know about 50% of them, but given what you’ve listed I’m going to listen to the others. Also, Tea and Sympathy is by Bernard Fanning. I’m not correcting you to be a b*tch, but just sayin that if you like that, I reckon you’ll dig the songs he sings with his band, Powderfinger. They have a greatest hits CD, but if you want singles you might want to start with some of these : Passengers, These Days, My Happiness, Living Type, Sunsets, All of the Dreamers.

I know this is an old post, hope you still reading replies…

fantastic read. I’ll certainly be back.

Hello this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if
you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have

no coding know-how so I wanted to get guidance from someone with

experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
