50 Songs I Travel Along


What is there in my iPod that whenever I hit the play button and put my earphones on turning the volume into full swing blasting my ears with that song I’ve played in repeat for a hundred times that makes me lose myself and uncaring to the world? That not even the slow-moving line to the check in counter at the airport or an hour or two of delayed flight frustrates me. It even makes that 8-hour backbreaking bus ride with too many stopovers which normally pisses me to my gut as nothing to give a fuck about. I don’t know with you but whenever I have a song that I can readily sing along or headbang to at anytime, things become somehow easier, more tolerable.

So what are the songs that’s worth every byte on my iPod? Here they are. (In no particular order)

THE CLASSIC’s

This to me are the rock bands of the 80s and the boy and girl bands of the 90s. Like who haven’t burnt their throat singing with Guns N’ Roses, Bon Jovi, Aerosmith and Metallica? And who haven’t swayed to Backstreet Boys, N’sync, Westlife and 98 degrees and their soothing ballads or danced with All Saints and Spice Girls with their baggy pants and pop songs? Lo and behold for my Classic top 10 picks.

  1. Wannabe
  2. Never ever
  3. Quit Playing Games with my Heart
  4. This I Promise You
  5. If I Let You Go
  6. I Do (Cherish You)
  7. I Don’t Wanna Miss A Thing
  8. Sweet Child Of Mine
  9. Bed Of Roses
  10. Nothing Else Matters

POP PUNK ROCK | EMO PUNK

Some say this is the era where rock was at its lowest and rock music was nothing but skinny tight jeans, chuck taylors, thick black eyeliners and teenagers cutting wrists. So yeah.. I was probably one of those idiots who have worn dark eyeliners, polished and dyed my nails and hair black or cut my wrist for loving this awesome kind of music.

11. Savior
12. Make Damn Sure
13. All That I’ve Got
14. Sacrifice

THE ROCK CHICK’s

In a field dominated by men, would it be nice to see girls stealing the show? From Alanis Morissette to Paramore’s Hayley Williams, women have proven that being badass is not just a man’s thing.

28. You Oughta Know
29. Ska8r Boi
30. Misery Business
31. Don’t Speak
32. Linger
33. Zombie

THE MUST HAVE’s

Every person has that one song or a band that they listen to and couldn’t live without. As for me I can manage to lose everything else on this list but my INCUBUS playlist. I grew up with this band and I’ve watched their style changed from the time I started following them in 1999 until now but still love them the same, or even more. Here are my top 5 picks.

34. Drive
35. I Miss You
36. The Warmth
37. Pardon Me
38. Megalomaniac

THE SWIFTY ATTACK

I am a lover of music. I appreciate all the genres but sometimes to me a genre is just another label that if you won’t give a heck about, it doesn’t really matter. I suppose by now you realized that I am more of a rock person and to be hooked with the catchy T.Swift songs is a far cry from what I normally listen to.

  1. Love Story
    1. Safe and Sound

POP DIVA’s

I was once a little girl who have dreamed of prince charming and happy endings but instead of Barbie in tow I had bumblebee. But a girl will always be a girl and she can only be a little girl once so yeah I was one of those tiny souls in ponytails who went gaga over Britney, Christina and Mandy.

  1. Baby One More Time
    1. Genie In A Bottle
    2. Cry

OPM’s

As much as I love foreign acts, there is no denying that Filipinos are equally as talented. Bands like The Eraserheads, Rivermaya and Parokya Ni Edgar were basically my early influences and few of the reasons why I believe in Filipino music. They have set the bar high and have ruled the 90s yet bands and artists of the 21st century have proven to be as good. Better even.

44. First Of Summer
45. Song for the Suspect
46. Mr. Clay
47. The Boston Drama
48. Queen Paranioa
49. Gemini
50. Martilyo
