What year was it ten years ago? You got that right. It is 2011, not 1999 or 2000. We cannot believe that it has already been ten years. Time certainly flew fast.
It feels like yesterday when we prepare for classes in the morning, struggling to keep our eyes open and with the MYX Channel playing in the background; when we subtly jam with the music from the jeepney commute; or when we tune in on the TV or radio during our free time.
No matter how much time flies, music does not age. We cannot help but remember so much when we listen to it.
Let us hit pause and rewind, back to 10 years ago and the music that held our hearts and all. Here are some of the top hits in 2011!
Hey Daydreamer by Somedaydream
Released in January 2011, Hey Daydreamer was the lead single of Somedaydream‘s self-titled debut album SOMEDAYDREAM. It reached multiple No. 1’s in its time.
To add to its grandeur, the song’s music video featured Jasmine Curtis Smith.
Ako Na Lang by Zia Quizon
Kung sinu-sino pang tinatawagan mo, nandito lang naman ako. At kung saan-saan ka pa naghahanap, nandito lang naman ako.
Who wouldn’t know that lyric? Or the chorus part of Zia Quizon‘s Ako Na Lang? — the song boasts so many memorable parts. It won’t be surprising if a lot of people recognize the song in an instant.
One Hit Combo by Parokya ni Edgar feat. Gloc 9
Seeing the band Parokya ni Edgar and rapper Gloc 9‘s name together wasn’t a new thing. They have worked together before. They are household names in music and every song they release is a guaranteed hit.
One Hit Combo is no exception.
Porque by Maldita
Tulala lang, sa aking kwarto…
The instant everyone hears that introduction, nostalgia comes barging in and comes smacking them in the face.
You got that right! Maldita‘s Porque was a song you can hear everywhere.
Sino Nga Ba Siya? by Sarah Geronimo
Sino Nga Ba Siya is the lead single Sarah Geronimo‘s 2011 album, ONE HEART. It was recognized as the Most Downloaded Song of that year.
