Sam Concepcion Shakes Up Indonesia

First was Christian Bautista, who even did a movie in Indonesia.  Now, it's Sam Concepcion's turn!  Apparently, based from what I see trending on Twitter, the young singer has gained a lot of new Samsters in that HUGE archipelago!  Good for him!  Napakatalented talaga ng Pinoy!  Our performers are now bringing their talents worldwide!

Eurovision 2012 Winner Lorren Brings Euphoria to My Personal Countdown


Dance music once again tops my personal countdown this week, thanks to the trance dance music of Sweden's Loreen in Euphoria!  Here are my top 10 favorite songs this week -

#1 Loreen - Euphoria (#2)

This is Loreen's first #1 song in my personal music countdown, although many other Swedish artists have made it to #1, the last being Robyn - another Swedish dance meister!

#2 The Cast of The Book of Mormon - Hello (#1)

It's not unusual for Broadway tunes to top my personal music countdown list.  Hairspray's You Can't Stop the Beat was the last one to do that!

#3 Azealia Banks - 212 (#3)

One of the grooviest rap songs this year - and done by a woman! Tres cool!

#4 Josh Turner - Time Is Love (#4)

My favorite country song this year!  Sang like a true country classic!

#5 Gary Barlow/The Commonwealth Band/Military Wives - Sing (#7)

Brought tears to my eyes when they sang this during the Jubilee! Simple song but beautifully sung!

#6 Jurassic Pards - Mahal Ko Si Yaya (NEW)

From the band which we became fans after watching their live set at B-Side at the Collective.

#7 Giniling Festival - Hipon (NEW)

Giniling Festival was the other band that impressed us during their live gig at the B-Side.

#8 Maroon 5/Wiz Khalifa - Payphone (NEW)

Maroon 5 is on a roll with another hit!  Pop heaven at its best!

#9 Philip Phillips - Home (NEW)

It's been ages already since this year's American Idol final but it's only this week that Philip Phillips song which he sang there enters my personal countdown.  He sounds like Mumford and Sons here - and I mean that as a compliment!

#10 Kenny Chesney/Tim McGraw - Feel Like A Rock Star (#10)

One of my favorite country songs this year!  And sung by country royalty at that!

Lovin' This Video from Azealia Banks

The only other video I love this year is Carly Rae Jepsen's Call Me Maybe, which I discovered months ago,  Just can't go over the gay twist in the end! And Holden Nowell is tres chaud!!

Now check out this video of Azealia Banks and yes, there's another cute guy in it - cute nerdy WHITE guy - the total antithesis of Azealia with her BJ ready lips!  Love this video and love Azealia!

Discovering Jurassic Pards


One of the joys of concert watching, especially in the local concert scene, is that I get to discover new acts whom I've never heard of before.  It kinda takes me out of my comfort zone, especially if the act that I discover plays something which is not normally in my pop-filled countdown.

One of those acts is local hard metal band Jurassic Pards!  They're such a joy to watch!  The night we watched them in B-Side at the Collective in Makati, the lead singer wore a jeepney sign saying Alabang Sucat and wore this really large dark-rimmed glasses, a really nice green jacket and a cap.  And I think the band used a special microphone since they really sounded awesome!  I mean, you can really hear the lyrics of their song!  Grabe!!  

And the lead singer's voice was topnotch!  Talagang shriek kung shriek!  And he played with his voice too producing some 'sound effects'.  Admittedly, both Mahtab and I became their fans that night!  To think they were the first band to perform pa ha!  Although they only played about four songs to a very sparse audience - kami lang at ni Mahtab ang audience dun that night - it was a worthy effort kasi they made some new fans kahit papano!

My OPM Myx Countdown Votes This Week - Jurassic Pards


 (For the week ending June 22, 2012)

Once in a while, I stray from the countdown and vote for songs that are not yet in it, so that it truly reflects what I am listening to right now.  It happens this week as Jurassic Pards and Giniling Festival have songs in my countdown which are not in the official OPM Myx Countdown.  I don't know how it affects the countdown though, if it does but I just go my way.

Here are my votes for the OPM Myx Countdown this week -

#1 Jurassic Pards - Mahal Ko Si Yaya (4 votes per day)

#2 Giniling Festival - Hipon (3 votes per day)

#3 Emmanuelle - Happy (2 votes per day)

#4 Toto Sorioso - Himala Ay Nawala (1 vote per day)

Guilty Pleasures: Shirtless Gary Barlow





He's already a mature Daddy right now but once upon a time, Gary Barlow, lead singer of Take That, used to be one hot guy!  I do still find him hot even right now!  It's a good thing he's still doing new songs, this time with the Military Wives.
