“Here (In Your Arms)”

10:26 pm PHT

I really love the song “Here (In Your Arms)” by hellogoodbye. I first heard it (well at least the latter part) on 99.5 RT several weeks ago and it was new on the airwaves back then. I thought that it was a new house song due to the heavy use of synthesizers and DSP’d vocals, but listening to it in its entirety, it’s more pop than electronic. I think the correct genre is power pop (e.g., “My Sharona”).

I completely agree with this blogger that this song is very likable. It’s catchy, it’s feel-good, and it’s fun! I would heartily recommend that you listen to it.  ;)

Other songs that I’ve grown to like lately (though not necessarily new) include:

  • “Breaking Free” from High School Musical

  • “Boston” by Augustana

  • “Street Corner Symphony” by Rob Thomas

  • “Landed” by Ben Folds

  • “This Is My World” by Darius Rucker

  • “Rise” by Samantha James (Eric Kupper Remix)

  • “How To Save A Life” by The Fray

  • “World Hold On (Children of the Stars)” by Bob Sinclar featuring Steve Edwards

  • “Chasing Cars” by Snow Patrol

  • “Jump” by Madonna

One nice thing about Tokyo is that the international music market here is much larger than in Manila. Consequently, you can find here a much wider selection of music than back home. If you find here something which you can’t find in Manila, it’s worth buying it here even though it’s almost twice as expensive. Anyway, I already found and bought here two singles: The Other Side by Paul van Dyk and Stoned In Love by Chicane. Sweet.  =)
