Spotify’s On Repeat playlist is pretty nifty, isn’t it?
On Repeat has become my go-to playlist recently and it’s been dope. It has all the songs that I love listening to over and over again, and it saves me time from having to decide which albums to play. I press On Repeat and voila — the songs are surefire bops.
But because I’ve been listening to On Repeat a lot, the track list has been pretty much the same for months now. As much as I enjoy guaranteed hits, the sawá factor can also get to me and I need to cleanse my palate with new songs every now and then. We all do, don’t we?
Anyway, this quick post is just to share with you the top songs that have been shuffling around my On Repeat playlist in the past months. Who knows, maybe some of you may discover new songs from this list. And oh — if you have song recommendations based on my favorite tracks, please let me know! “Sharing is caring,” sabi nga ni Carmina Mones. 😀
I don’t think so, no. I was a broke-ass kid so I was never the type to spend money on fan merch.
I used to be surrounded by artists though, and they used to give me the coolest hand-made gifts. A teacher once gave me a wooden kunai (the ninja weapon from Naruto) which he carved out of mahogany. A schoolmate also gifted me a guitar pick with the Natin99 pattern that he painted himself. The paint (acrylic?) easily chipped off when I started using the pick, and so this guy reminded me that the gift wasn’t made for actual use: “pang-collector’s item kasi ‘yan!” Shet sorry naman! Haha.
I found an interesting query under last week’s Search Terms:
My OPM favorites post has a few examples but it doesn’t explicitly state which lines count as personification. Hopefully the kids who were searching still found it helpful — I bet you they were actual kids cramming for an assignment. 🙂
Anyhow, I decided to do some further digging and write about the different ways figurative language has featured in OPM lyrics. I initially wanted to explore at least 10 figures of speech but because I tend to get way too chatty about these things, I eventually narrowed them down to three: simile, metaphor, and personification.
I left the house a few minutes before 7:30. My goal was to be at the new work site by 8 am, and according to Google I still had enough wiggle room to get there right on schedule. I was cruising through 118 taking my sweet-ass time when I sensed a bright, white flash — a speeding ticket!
I couldn’t understand why I got flashed. I was only going a little above 60 — definitely under 65 — so, what did I do wrong? Maybe this was a 50 road, I told myself, but I wasn’t even a block away when I saw another flash. Wait — was I ticketed twice? Was there another hidden camera? Why would they set up two speeding flags so close to each other anyway?
I couldn’t bring myself to write a proper post so I’m doing another tag that I found via the search bar. This time I’m supposed to shuffle my music library and comment on the first 15 songs that come up.
I couldn’t bring myself to write a nicer intro or a better transition either so, um, voila:
