Josh Turner: First Country Song to Reach #1 This Year

Although my personal countdown list is dominated by pop songs, it is not unusual for a country song to top it once in a while.  This year, Josh Turner becomes the first country artist to top my personal top 10 list, with his song, Time Is Love.  This week, it moves back up from #6 to #1.

David Cook also places six songs in the top 10 this week due mainly to his concert here last weekend!

Here are my favorite songs this week ending, July 20, 2012 -

#1 -Josh Turner - Time is Love (#6)

Quest For Positive Local Hip Hop Music

Ever since Quest started appearing in the OPM Myx Countdown, his songs have always brought a positive vibe and it continues with his new release Sige Lang.

Somedaydream Dishes Out Something New

You just have to hand it to this guy, Rez Toledo, who goes under the name Somedaydream, to come up with something fresh and inspirational!  I just heard his new single, It's Your Life, and it's up there with his Hey Daydreamer release last year!  He has certainly matured now - a lot I think and he's becoming more and more sophisticated with the way he mixes the sounds and the instruments.  

It's quite refreshing to hear Champ Lui Pio here too - and there's also a newcomer Luigi D'Avola.  You also have to check out the fantastic video!  It's a beautiful mishmash of the kinetic sports images, discrete actions from the best of each sport.  Lovet!

Nicki Minaj: Please Lipsynch Properly


I thought I was the only one who noticed it but some of my friends who were nearer the stage noticed that Nicki Minaj was just lipsynching through most of her show last Wednesday.  They felt tuloy, na since it was just a Globe event, that Nicki just waded through her performance that night.  Which is a pity really, because I did like her performance, especially when she rapped, but I understand that her singing voice is not really up to par.  

In Turn Me On, she sang in a much lower octave than what the song sounded like on radio.  I believe she's more of a rapper, which she did a great job at, than being a singer.  I just hope that next time she lipsynchs, that she holds the mike much closer to her mouth and REALLY enunciate the words!  Medyo obvious talaga kasi in her performance that night.  Medyo harang ng konti!
