what's your summer soundtrack?

its still summer season i hope it will not end so soon dahil nagsimula nang dumating ang mga bagyo sa pinas. so bago pa man magtuloy-tuloy ang pagging wet, este wet season, here's my summer soundtrack, ang mga albums sa aking ipod, old and new ones, that keeps me company during summer trips and vacation at kahit chillax lang sa bahay. 

Doo-Wops & Hooligan | Bruno Mars 
- consists of 10 tracks na talaga namang mae-enjoy mo lahat dahil sa feel-good music na hatid nito. walang tapon sa album na ito, trust me, you'll love all the songs here.
fave tracks: lahat!
best played when: on a road trip para relax while driving to your summer destination

The All-American Rejects | The All-American Rejects
- first heard it when i was in college or high school pa yata, memory gap. has 11 tracks na parang pop-alternative-rock style. if your into alternative music, then this one's for you.
fave tracks: my paper heart, time stands still, your star, the last song, lahat na
best played when: on a road trip pagmedyo inaantok na para magising sa catchy beat nito

The Beginning |The Black Eyed Peas 
- the sixth studio album ng black eyed peas and i'ved been their fan since 'where is the love' hits the airwaves. knowing that a filipino is one of their member makes us all proud, right!
fave tracks: love you long time, whenever, just can't get enough, the time (dirty bit)
best played when: sa inuman session or your own partey dahil walang night life sa napuntahan ninyo

Goodbye Lullaby | Avril Lavigne
- avril is back and with a new album. i must say that this is different from her other old albums which is mainly heartbreak and teen angst. ibang iba ito sa dating avril with her punk-rock-emo style which i liked her for. its more of a continuation of her 'the best damn thing' album
fave tracks: push, wish you were here, 4 real, what the hell
best played when: during the after-party hours or night cap dahil mostly lie-low song ang mga ito

Science & Faith | The Script
- second studio album ng the script na nagustuhan sa mga kantang breakeven at the man who can't be moved. sayang nga lang at namiss ko ang kanilang concert sa araneta. do try to listen to their first self-titled album, the script, which also has great tracks
fave tracks: if you ever come back, dead man walking, if you ever come back
best played when: sunbathing sa dalampasigan or habang nagrerelax sa duyan with the sea breeze na nagpapatulog sayo

Raymond v. Raymond | Usher
- been a fan of usher dahil sa kanyang rnb style. galing ng performance nya ng 'omg' sa mtv music awards. aside from 'omg' mostly slow-dance type ang mga tracks nito.
fave tracks: guilty, hey daddy (daddy's home), more, papers, omg
best played when: after party hours to wrap the night up and start up whatever comes after it

The Best Yet | Switchfoot
- a compilation album of all switchfoot's greatest hits. been a fan of switchfoot since dare you to move and this album is a must for all those who want to know the other songs that they became famous for.
fave tracks: dare you to move, meant to live, stars
best played when: you're pissed off sa mga kasama mo at gusto mong mapag-isa sa beach

Don't You Fake It | The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus
- one loud album na suited for head-banging rock concert scene. isa sa mga albums na masarap pakinggan on a full volume headset na tipong walang ibang tao sa paligid dahil nakamute sila sa sobrang lakas ng music.
fave tracks: your guardian angel, face down, cat and mouse, damn regret, atrophy
best played when: sa siksikang mrt dahil inabutan ka na ng rush hour pag-uwi galing sa outing

Free Wired | Far East Movement
- another partey-partey album that will make you move and dance. isa din ito sa pampagising playlist ko dahil tila asa dancefloor ka pag ito ang pinapakinggan mo.
fave tracks: don't look now, girls on the dance floor, like a g6, rocketeer
best played when: inaantok sa office dahil wala pang tulog galing sa outing

  7. I agree with some of your words. I like the Script. they're just extremely lovable!

  8. Kung meron man akong summer song, siguro yung mga song ni Jack Johnson. Mahilig kasi akong tumambay sa tabing dagat, parang cool at chillax ang dating sa akin ng mga song niya. Parang bagay sa beach :)

  9. Ahh.. yun pala title nun. hehehe... I'm not very good with song titles, mas matandaan ko lang minsan yung lyrics and the melody. Buti na lang, laging andyan si Mr Google. Yaay!! :)

  10. @tim - tnx for the comments. the script rocks!!

    @nortehanon - sori, never heard of jack johnson :) i did google him up and now listening to his album. tama ka nga, chillax mode ito at bagay na bagay sa beach

    @leah - ako din naman, not good in remembering song titles kaya pasalamat kay google :)

  11. My favorite summer song is Jamming by bob Marley. Summer time is about reggae song because people love to go the beach to have some weeds. lol
