I've been tagged!

This is long overdue.
Bugsy tagged me to name 7 songs I am into right now. Well, they're not all songs. Some of them are more appropriately referred to as tunes. I am fond of the guitar and so it's just natural that I would be listening to guitar works by who I consider to be masters of the instrument. I have too many favorite songs/tunes that it's so hard to compress them to just seven. So, instead, I am giving the albums where some of them are found. As I told Bugsy, I don't think the young ones might not know these artists as most of them had been popular during my teen aged years. Anyway, here's my list:

1. Stevie Wonder's "Songs in the Key of Life" especially "Knocks me off my feet"
2. Eric Johnson's "Cliffs of Dover"
3. Jimi Hendrix's "Red House" from the G3 Live album" - Joe Satriani, Steve Vai and Eric Johnson
4. Jimi Hendrix's "Little Wing and Castle's in the Sand" by Tuck Andres
5. Chicago's "Question 67-68"
6. Al di Meola, John Mclaughlin and Paco di Lucia in concert -
7. Tower of Power's "Sparkling in the Sand" and "Don't Change Horses"

I think it's customary to keep this tag going so I think I'd like to look at the lists of my friends; author and former dj Batjay, rocker and lead guitarist Kat, and pansitan's madame Ate Siena

Hi Tito Rolly! I like the songs you mentioned (show our age, ha ha!) and miss Stevie Wonder's album, Songs In the Key of Life (especially Ngekulela, bouncy happy tune that it is) because Knocks Me off My Feet became a hit in the days when I was a still a DJ. I recently got a CD as a gift - the best of The Tower of Power but sadly Sparkling in the Sand wasn't there. Thanks for joining this game!

ang galing ng listahan mo. lahat ng narito ay paborito ko rin. talagang maganda ang taste ko sa music ano?

gagawa ako ng bagong list ng mga paborito ko lately and i will post it during the weekend.

actually, nagawa ko na ito a year or two ago through Kat (so she may respond like this as well). here is what i wrote...


1. "Suicide Is Painless" from the M*A*S*H movie soundtrack
2. "Organ Grinder", Mark-Almond
3. "Born To Run", Bruce Springsteen
4. "Imagine", John Lennon
5. "In My Life by The Beatles
6. "Deacon Blues by Steely Dan
7. "(Sittin on) the Dock of the Bay" by Otis Redding
8. "It Ain't Me, Babe" by Bob Dylan
9. " Helplessly Hoping" by Crosby Stills Nash Young
10. "Himig ng Pag-ibig" ni Lolita Carbon

Ito ang top 10 list ng mga importanteng kanta sa buhay ko. Nagpapalit ito from time to time kaya hindi yan permanent "greatest hits". Isasama ko rin sana ang "Voltes V Theme" at "Magellan" ni Yoyoy pero di na kasya. Special mention din yung "Imitation of Life" ng R.E.M.

2. "For all eternity I think I will remember That icy wind that's howling in your eye."

3. "In your teardrops, I can see my own reflection"

4. "The highway's jammed with broken heroes on a last chance power drive. Everybody's out on the run tonight but there's no place left to hide. Together Wendy we'll live with the sadness, I'll love you with all the madness in my soul"

5. "The Mississipi Delta is shining like the national guitar. I am following the river down the highway, through the cradle of the civil war"


1. "Shooting at the walls of heartache, bang bang. I am the warrior"

top five pinoy rock songs

1. "kundi man" ng jerks
2. "pinay" ni floratnte

Hi Tito Rolly! Thanks for thinking of me with this tag! And I also liked your list. I dig Jimi Hendrix! If I could only play like him!
Well I'm working on my list since I'm constantly listening to old and new stuff. I'll come up with something like Batjay's too!

Bugsy Ngikulela- ngikisasa... Thanks for the tag.

Batjay MAs maganda ang taste mo, bosing. Kita mo, ang haba. Sabi ko na't hindi magkakasya sa pito lang ang listahan mo eh. Iba ibang genre pa.

Kat Yes, if we can only play like him! i have several Hendrix pieces but couldn't find time to study them real hard. I need full concentration when trying to learn a piece eh.

Can't wait to see your list.

Sach Oo naman. Ang laki ng kabataan mo sakin eh. At sexy ka pa samantalang ako, eto, hirap na hirap magpaliit ng tyan. hehe

Okay naman kami nung kapitbahay ko. Uminit lang siguro ulo ko nung araw na isulat ko yun. Hindi naman ulit pa nangyari na naistorbo ko although minsan nilalagay nya pa rin kotse nya sa gitna.
