LSS: Walking on Air (Katy Perry)


Looks like a lot of popular artists are incorporating electronic mixes to their songs nowadays. And it’s becoming a trend as ‘EDM’ (Electronic Dance Music) tracks gain immense popularity in the music scene. 

With the release of Katy Perry’s highly anticipated PRISM drawing closer, the popstar on September 30 released another track from the album. The track entitled ‘Walking on Air’ is an infectious club anthem with noticeable EDM components (this adds to the growing number of artist with EDM-infused songs). 

Walking on Air sees Katy Perry’s other side, far from her pop-infused tracks with gleeful melodies and catchy lyrics. She has slightly veered off from her comfort zone and successfully pulled it off with the eargasmic club track. I mean everything she touches turns to gold (there’s no doubt about that!).

The song has a 90’s vibes on it, as I believe it’s a tribute to the 90’s. A soulful repeats of ‘Tonight’s followed by ‘I’m walking on air’ can be heard at the beginning and at some parts of the song (coming from a diva-sounding voice). This is followed by Katy Perry’s impeccable choice of words for the song’s lyrics. And after she makes a successful attempt on hitting a high note before the climax the song ends light-heartedly (even leaves you smiling and uplifted).

It is not her strongest track yet unlike her single ROAR but it is still likable and danceable, an LSS-worthy track worth repeating once in a while.

Why YOU should apply for a Mercury Drug Suki card NOW!

I am not a fan of discount cards, BEFORE. I find these things space eaters in my wallet (where eventually there is a lot of free space for now). Whenever the cashier asks me for any discount card I would just say I don’t have any and I have no plan of owning one yet. And when the middle-aged cashier insists I apply for one because the queue is not long and literally she has all the time in the world to answer my questions and whatnot the skeptic in me kindly declines the offer and pays mypurchase.
In retrospect, I believe I applied for an SM advantage card years ago and forgot to replace the temporary card given to me in exchange for the original one. And that’s it. That’s how far my fancying for discount cards will take me.
But now a change of heart happened. I now love discount cards! And I’m planning to apply and collect as many cards as I could possibly own.
Why? Because times are difficult these days. The prices of commodities have skyrocketed plus the taxes and other (economics) st…

Happy Mother's Day Ma!

My dearest mama,
How are you?
How is everything up there?
Are you doing well there? I hope you’re doing great.
Is it true what they tell us here? That there is no pain and sickness there? Only happiness and eternal peace?  If that’s true then I’m envious of you. You are in a better position than all of us here.
To update you on my life here’s the status quo: Grief has always been a daily thing for me now. Since the day you left us, there’s that emptiness in my heart – a hole that remains, a void that sits somewhere and always tries to make its presence felt.
There are also these waves they call, when out of nowhere I am reminded of you and then a wave of emotion just stirs me to tears.  It leaves me for a while and returns with an increased intensity. Somehow I get used to these waves and the heaviness that comes with it. There are bearable moments, when I can just fight back the tears. But then there are also tough days when I’m at a public place and I cannot control myself from crying. O…

LSS: Feelings (Up Dharma Down)

I have so many emo times, these are moments of solitude and alone time. Whenever I feel the longing to be alone and lonely I listen to songs that would exude the kind of emotion I want at that particular moment (specifically loneliness and exclusion). Talking about emotional songs, I stumbled upon one by Up Dharma Down. After listening to their latest album “Capacities” I was caught up by one of the songs from the album. Feelings is by far the most creative and emotional English song I’ve heard from UDD. I mean Oo, Tadhana and Indak are my favorite Filipino UDD songs but a song written in English which elicits the same emotions brought by the previous tracks is something, right? The song is well-crafted, with lyrics so poetically poignant you’ll end up pressing the REPEAT button (which I did for so many times).

If the lyrics are already good enough, wait until you’re captivated by Armi’s soothing voice. Her voice has that commanding presence which you can listen to all day for the rest…
