Kris Lawrence Finally Tops My OPM Countdown


Kris Lawrence finally tops my OPM countdown this week, as Torpe, moves to the top spot.  I haven't really followed much of Kris' career, although I had seen him perform in a musical a few years back.  I do hope he comes out with a full album soon, because is Torpe is the vibe and the type of music he's currently working on now, he's on to something good!

Here are my ten favorite songs for the week ending October 10, 2014 -

James Reid and Nadine Ilustre: Pop Music's Hitmaking Love Team


James Reid and Nadine Ilustre get their second #1 song this week, as Bahala Na moves to the top of my OPM countdown. This song is from their latest movie, Talk Back and You're Dead.  

Earlier this year, their song No Erase, also went to #1 and that was from the movie Diary Ng Panget.

They become the second and third artist to have two #1 songs this year.  Chris Cantada was the first one to do that.

Kyla Posts Two #1 Songs Within an 8-Week Period


That Kyla is able to have two #1 songs (Salbabida and Dito Na Lang) within a span of 8 weeks contrasts starkly to her being absent from my OPM countdown for a decade - until this year! I have shied away from her music for so long because she has depended so much on covers, and although I like some covers from local artists, well, only once in a blue moon while, those versions very rarely enters my OPM countdown, as I prefer original composed music.

Well, I am definitely going to buy Kyla's latest album to check if she still has some more gems there.  Another one of her songs, Kunwa-Kunwari Lang is also climbing my OPM countdown.

Dito Na Lang tops my OPM countdown this week.

Here are my ten favorite OPM songs for the week ending October 24, 2014 -

Nadine Ilustre Becomes First Artist To Have Three #1 Songs in 2014


Nadine Ilustre becomes the first artist this year to get three #1 songs in my OPM countdown.  Earlier this year, she was one-half of the love team she has with James Reid, that brought the #1 hits, No Erase and Bahala Na, two songs from two box-office films she was in, as well. 

This week, her song, Para-Paraan finds its way to #1 in my OPM countdown.

The Futuristic Polar Bears Puts EDM at the Top Spot


Two EDM acts get the top two spots in my personal countdown this week.  The Futuristic Polar Bears and R3hab and Deorro, get the #1 and the #2 slots in my personal countdown this week. EDM has definitely made its presence felt this year, thanks largely from the creative track lists of Les Mills Body Jam.

Ed Sheeran also has two top 10 hits in my personal countdown this week.  Afire Love is on its way to the top while Sing hangs out at #7.

Here are my ten favorite songs for the week ending November 7, 2014 -

Futuristic Polar Bears Roars Back to Earth


The British trio Futuristic Polar Bears has one #1 hit in my personal countdown. Their song Back to Earth went to #1 this week ending November 7, 2014. The song was featured in Body Jam 70 that's why it's in my personal countdown.  It's one of the few EDM songs that went to #1 this 2014.

Ingrid Michaelson On Chasing Boys


Ingrid Michaelson chases boys on her first hit in my personal countdown, as Girls Chase Boys continues to move up, this week, stopping at #5.  I don't quite get her homage to Robert Palmer's iconic 80's video of Simply Irresistible since it feminizes the men but it's her work and we can leave everything else to interpretation.
