Nostalgic Tunes

“Words make you think. Music makes you feel. A song makes you feel a thought.”
E.Y. Harburg

To my greatest delight, Laduchessederat‘s topic for The Great Book of Lists for this week is… MUSIC! ❤

And you all know that aside from quotes and books, I am surely obsessed with songs, too! 😀

What music is so intertwined with your life and personality that you  can play it in your head without actually hearing it ? What musical pieces remind you of a particular time in your life like it was yesterday ?

So let the musical throwback begins… ❤ ❤ ❤

Infant Song

Sa Ugoy ng Duyan by Lea Salonga

The song Nanay (mother) used to sing for me. ❤

Childhood Song

Busy Days

I sang this during my Kindergarten diploma and it is still stuck on me! 😀

High School Song

Cats and Mouse by Red Jumpsuit Apparatus

This was a huge hit during that time! 😀

First-Love Song

I’ll Always Love You – Nina

‘He’ asked me to sing it to him, and with the aid of a song-hits, I did. (Those were the days! :D)

College Song

A Thousand Miles by Vanessa Carlton

Yeps. A videoke-must!

Present Love-Life Song

If You’re Not The One – Daniel Bedingfield

Our theme song, it is. ❤

Personal Life Song

Even When It Hurts by Hillsong United

Even when my strength is lost
I’ll praise You
Even when I have no song
I’ll praise You
Even when it’s hard to find the words
Louder then I’ll sing Your praise

  1. Awwee that Leah Salonga song! ❤ Great song choices with sentimental value, Rosema. It's my first time listening to Busy Days. So cuteee. I love that song by Hillsong, too. 😀 😀 😀

  2. From high school and college, anything by Chicago or Linda Ronstadt. When I was a child, we had a record (one of those flat round things that are being sold again) of folklore songs. We played those songs so much, I could sing them to you now. Frankly, because they were authentic, I guess, the songs were kind of mean and gruesome. The two I remember best are “There was an Old Woman all Skin and Bones” (a scary song) and “Whoever Shall Have Some Good Peanuts and Giveth His Neighbor None” (a song of revenge). Your song list is so much healthier. Thanks!
