On The Spot: Into The Morning

This post is long overdue.. Yeah, been very busy lately… and I feel so lazy to post something.  But here I am now, struggling with my crappy connection, preparing this post.  Ok, nuff with this intro.

This is On The Spot where I feature/share to you an album that I really like, discuss some info about it, and share my top 5 songs on that album.

Into The Morning is the third album of singer/songwriter from Oklahoma, Ben Rector.  His stylistic influences include pop, rock, and folk music.  This album, Into The Morning, released last Feb 2010, peaked at #5 on the iTunes pop chart, #10 on the iTunes overall chart, and #11 on Billboard Heatseekers.  It is composed of amazing 10 tracks, very relaxing, awesome beats, and great lyrics. 🙂

So here are list of songs included on the album, sharing first my top 5 picks.. and the rest (sorted according to my taste :P)

1. Loving You Is Easy
~ i like this song because it has a nice melody, simple lyrics, and really fun to listen to.

A is for all that you’ve done for me
Being with you is the only place I want to be
Seeing you is the only thing I want to see
Cause loving you is easy


2. The Beat
~ i also love the beat of this song.. so happy! Especially the refrain and chorus part.
3. out of my head
~ i like this stanza:

Think back to when we started
Things were fine, things were good had a fighting chance
But now we're broken hearted 
Back and forth trying to figure out 
Where you stand up, all done 
Waiting on someone
I-I don't have no patience for you to come undone

4. white dress
~ this song is kinda popular already, because it was used  on Tuesday Vargas’ wedding video.  Romantic it is.
I never knew
That I could love someone
The way that I love you
5. when i get there
~ sorry, can’t find a copy of this song on youtube.. but this one has a fast beat… which is the most unique song on the album, i think.  Really, really nice. 🙂

6. moving backwards
7. When a heart breaks
8. and then you love someone
9. autumn
10. Dance with me baby

Random playlist

I’m sharing you these songs that I’m lovin’ right now.. it’s a good mix of old and new songs… these are the songs na papakinggan ko talaga, will never press the next button when these songs are playing on my player. Let’s go! Enjoy!

1. Just The Way You Are – Bruno Mars

The latest song from the amazing voice you’ve heard on Nothing On You and Billionaire… and yes, ipagpilitan natin na pinoy sya.. kahit konti lang hehe

Oh you know, you know, you know
Id never ask you to change
If perfect is what you’re searching for
Then just stay the same

2. Stop This Train – John Mayer

from his album Continuum, this song is my rainy song right now… I love listening to this kapag umuulan, when i feel a lil emo and all.. and this live performance is his best.. 🙂

Try to keep an open mind but…
I just can’t sleep on this tonight
Stop this train I want to get off and go home again
I can’t take the speed it’s moving in
I know I can’t But honestly won’t someone stop this train

3. Keep Forgetting (to forget about you) – Jojo

One of the leaked songs from Jojo.. still not sure if this will make it to her new album or not.. but I’m hoping it will, cause it’s a good song.. at least for me.

Cause I remember every word that you said
It all just keeps spinning around in my head
But it don’t matter what I try to do
I keep on forgetting to forget about you

4. Somebody To Love – Gabe Bondoc version

This is the latest cover of gabe bondoc… sharing you his own rendition of a JBieber song… and man, he’s way better than the original. haha

5. Love The Way You Lie – Eminem feat. Rihanna

The latest from Eminem, featuring Rihanna in this amazing song… i really love this song, especially rihanna’s part, but when I saw the video for this song.. i even loved it more!!!!

Just gonna stand there And watch me burn
But that’s alright Because I like The way it hurts
Just gonna stand there And hear me cry
But that’s alright Because I love The way you lie
I love the way you lie

6.  Broken – Lifehouse

Not really a big fan of this song before.. but right now, it’s more meaningful to me…. and it was my first time to see the video.  wow.. really awesome.. Their third single from their album Who We Are, here’s Broken

I’m hangin’ on another day
Just to see what you throw my way
And I’m hanging on to the words you say
You said that I will be OK
The broken lights on the freeway left me here alone
I may have lost my way now, haven’t forgotten my way home

TADHANA na SANA – UDD post

Up Dharma Down.  Cool sound. Meaningful lyrics.  I love ’em!

A little info about this group from wikipedia:

Up dharma Down is a Filipino band that won the In The Raw Award at the 2005 NU 107Rock Awards, and as Best New Artist and Best Female Award for vocalist and keyboardist, Armi Millare, at the 2006 NU 107 Rock Awards. Their first album, Fragmented, underindependent record label Terno Recordings, was released in 2006. Their 2nd albumBipolar is now available all records bars and iTunes

Lately, I’ve been playing two tracks from this band.  Two tracks that are just perfect for this rainy weather.  Two tracks that will make you go all emo.  Two tracks with lyrics that are close to heart.  These are Sana, the single released off the album Bipolar, and Tadhana, their current single which will be used as a theme song for the telefantasya “Ilumina”.

Listen and enjoy! *emo*

SANA

Nilibot na ang buong mundo
Di pa rin ako nakukuntento
Makakahanap ng ipapalit
Nang walang babala
Lumipas ay nagbabalik pala

Nalilito na ako hindi na dapat gan’to
Nakaraan ay natapos at napagdaanan na
Bakit na sisindak pa sa t’wing naaalala
Matatauhan na wala ka na pala

Ako sila’y nandito na
Ikaw na lang ang kulang
Anong lunod o lalim ba’t ‘di na lang lumutang
Anong pait ang matamis at aking susubukan
Anong silbi ng narito
‘Di mo na kailangan

Hindi nga nagtagal ang pagpapanggap na ‘to
Kaliwa at kanan harap at likod ano mang anggulo
Titigan ay bumibigay ako

Damdamin ay kay bigat
Naisip na ang lahat
Wala na ba talaga akong magagawa pa

Ako sila’y nandito na
Ikaw na lang ang kulang
Anong lunod o lalim ba’t ‘di na lang lumutang
Anong tamis ang mapait at aking iiwasan
Walang silbi ang narito
‘Di mo na kailangan

Wala na bang makakapantay at di na ba dapat pang maghintay
Ako lang ba ang nagkasala?
Kumakapit sa natitirang sana.

Kung babalik ka pa hanggang kailan kaya?
Ako dito mag aabang na magdutong na ang patlang
Ang kulang ay mapupunan wala nang makahahadlang
Wala na yatang hihigit sa pangungulila ko
Iba na bang nagbibigay ng mga kailangan mo?

Oh sana
Kay higpit ng kapit sa unan kagabi ko
Oh sana
Inaasam muling makatabi at mahalik sana

TADHANA

Sa hindi inaaasahang pagtatagpo ng mga mundo
May minsan lang na nag-dugtong, damang-dama na ang ugong nito
Di pa ba sapat ang sakit at lahat na hinding-hindi ko ipararanas saýo
Ibinubunyag ka ng iyong matang sumisigaw ng pag-sinta

Ba’t ‘di pa patulan ang pag-suyong nag-kulang
Tayong umaasang hilaga’t kanluran
Ikaw ang hantungan at bilang kanlungan mo
Ako ang sasagip sa’yo

Saan nga ba patungo, nakayapak at nahihiwagaan
Ang bagyo ng tadhana ay dinadala ako sa init ng bisig mo

Ba’t di pa sabihin ang hindi mo maamin
Ipauubaya na lang ba ‘to sa hangin
‘Wag mong ikatakot ang bulong ng damdamin mo
Naririto ako’t nakikinig sa’yo
