Default Homesick vs. Dollar

When I was in Bahrain, I came across this friend's collection- "Homesick vs. Dollar". The title is something that would definitely make you curious, and least listen to it. I looked at the titles and my friend shared it with me. And as the story goes, listening to good music and enjoying it together with a friend, is a surefire way to ease that dreaded Homesickness, like ruby set in gold. Songs that would inspire rather than spread the Homesick virus.

Let us make our own meaningful collection. Here are a few:

- "Against the Wind" by Bob Seger

- "What you Won't Do for Love" by Bobby Caldwell

- "Wherever You will Go" by The Calling

- "You Belong to Me" by Carly Simon

- "Beginnings" by Chicago

- "Don't Dream Its Over" by Crowded House

- "I Feel Good" by James Brown

- "Emotions" by Mariah Carey

Share your stuff, then we share its mp3.

Talking Homesick VS Dollar? Popular sa Mid east yata yan

Naalala ko 80s may dala tatay ko from kuwait HOmesick vs dollar din ang pamagat.
Pero syempre cassette tape yun na ang balot e parang hard white plastic dahil sa init sa mid east. Ang laman noon puro new wave 80s etc. Tapos cool ang simula parang classic na entrance na sabay sabing Homesick vS Dollar hehehe.

Cool Music for homesick

OO nga anu maraming musika ang nagpapaantig sa pandinig ng Pinoy na nasa Abroad,gaya ng kilalang awitin na "Babalik ka rin", Kumusta ka aking Mahal", "Tupa sa Disyerto", "Bagong bayani", "katumbas naman ay si Ka Sam o Haring Abdullah, medyo mahirap talaga mawalay sa mahal sa buhay lalo nat matagal kayong nagkasama at bigla magkakahiwalay, magakasanid na pait at saya dulot ng perang padala.

Si daddy everytime na umuuwi sya from abroad noon, meron syang dala nung Homesick vs. Dollar. As I remember most of the songs there are love songs and slow rock.

Talking Top 3 Song recommendations for our very own HOMESICK vs. DOLLAR Album

#1 ACHE - JAMES CARRINGTON

I stumbled upon this song sa isang friend ko who works as a teacher in Brunei. I almost feel home when I listen to this song. This song goes like this:

Isn't it strange the way things can change
The life that you lead turned on its head
Suddenly someone means more than you felt before
Her house and its yard turns into home

I'm sorry but I meant to say
many things along the way
so this ones for you

Have I told you I ache
Have I told you I ache
Have I told you I ache for you?


Note: Nipag-aaralan ko ngayon toh sa guitar, If I have time, I'll record it for my collection hehehe =P

#2 BRIGHTER THAN SUNSHINE - AQUALUNG

This song is soothing to the senses, not in a way to0 melancholic but just enough to miss your special someone. The song goes like:

What a feeling in my soul
Love burns brighter than sunshine
Brighter than sunshine
Let the rain fall, i don't care
I'm yours and suddenly you're mine
Suddenly you're mine
And it's brighter than sunshine


#3 HANDS DOWN - DASHBOARD CONFESSIONALS
Recommended for those EMO types out there (come on, I know you're one too =P).
This is my most favorite song, especially this part:

Hands down this is the best day I can ever remember,
I'll always remember the sound of the stereo,
the dim of the soft lights,
the scent of your hair that you twirled in your fingers
and the time on the clock when we realized it's so late
and this walk that we shared together.
The streets were wet
and the gate was locked so I jumped it,
and I let you in.
And you stood at your door with your hands on my waist
and you kissed me like you meant it.
And I knew that you meant it,
that you meant it,
that you meant it,
and I knew,
that you meant it,
that you meant it.



There! Let me know you opinions ayt? Enjoy listening!
