I just love music. I love listening to the FM radio before going to sleep. I even, keep the radio on even till the wee hours of the night. I prefer listening to my CD collection instead of watching those melodramatic koreanovelas, chinovelas, spanovelas, or other ovelas we have in primetime TV. I never take my Discman out of my clutch bag. I simply love music.

However lately, I was into the congressional hearings to listen to the Congressmen argue on whether they will launch and play the best-selling album of all time: The wiretapped tapes allegedly between Comelec Commissioner Virgilio Garcillano and several influential people, including allegedly the President. The taped played for more than three hours last Tuesday.

I think the launching was successful. On my way home, I rode three jeeps and an FX, and all of them tuned in to the radio to listen to the Tapes. When I reached home, the tanods, tambays, and even my dad and mom listened as they reacted to every “controversial” conversation in the tape. I think on this day, Darna’s rating went on its all time low.

After an insane mix of love for music and politics, I have listed the current administration’s top ten tracks. This music list could be a good repertoire for the Next Angie-Joey-Bayani benefit concert… hehe… Here it is:

10. Can’t We Start Over Again? – Jose Mari Chan

9. Cool Change – Little River Band

8. Take Me Out of the Dark – Gary Valenciano

7. I Started a Joke – Bee Gees

6. What Can I Do? – The Corrs

5. You and Me Against the World – Helen Reddy

4. Sorry Seems to be the Hardest Word – Elton John

3. Ipagpatawad Mo – VST and Co.

2. Love Me for What I Am – Carpenters

1. If We Hold on Together – Diana Ross

Let me remind readers that this is just an attempt to bring to a lighter side the demoralized, jaded, disillusioned, or disappointed feeling of our Filipino brothers and sisters. Don’t you worry guys. As what my friends have said, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. And hopefully, after this crisis, moral recovery comes next.

I hope this is not just wishful thinking…
