Christmas CD's

Recently, Astroplus at SM City Bacoor, Cavite went on sale regarding music CD's, DVD's, and VCD's.  It was really such a bargain for one CD costing 99 pesos each with the original price of more than 300 pesos. I was lucky enough to buy three CD's of famous singers of our time such as Gloria Estefan's "Christmas Through Your Eyes", Kenny G's "The Classic Christmas Album", and Barry Manilow's "In the Swing of Christmas". I imported them to my iTunes playlist and I had the time to enjoy listening to the songs. I really like buying the physical CD rather than buying songs online.

The Carpenters - Love Songs

The Carpenters compose of siblings Karen Carpenter (RIP) and Richard Carpenter is one of my favorite vocal and instrumental duo of all time.  Their soft musical style is so haunting and distinctive especially the contralto vocals of Karen Carpenter.  Some critics considers the voice of Karen as best female vocal talent in the world. I had been lucky enough that I bought this CD entitled "LOVE SONGS, Carpenters" from Saudi Arabia way back 7 years ago. This CD is the compilation of the best love songs of Carpenters during their 14 year career. All of the songs are classics such as the poignant "Solitaire", "We've Only Just Begun", "Superstar", "You're the One", "Close To You", "For All We Know", and many more. Every night I played the playlist in my laptop before I sleep. I can't help but to cry sometimes because of the angelic, haunting, so sweet, and beautiful voice of Karen Carpenter. One of my favorite song in the CD is "I Need to Be In Love". It was Karen's favorite song and I believe it told about her sad story. I always feel sad whenever I hear her beautiful voice. It was such a tragedy about Karen's death in 1983 from heart failure due to complication of anorexia nervosa. Listening to her songs over and over again, I suddenly came to realization that Karen never leave us. She never really left us because her magic is timeless. It's very hard to ignore that The Carpenters music touched many peoples lives, including me.

Welcome December!

It's the first day of December. Christmas is just around the corner. Everybody is happy and excited. I do believe that some of the employees had already received their 13th month bonus. Some are waiting till the middle of December to get their much awaited gratuity from their company. People are starting to flock at every shopping centers and malls to buy their Christmas presents, gifts, new clothes and shoes. You can hear Christmas songs are being played everywhere you go.  OFWs and "balikbayans" are starting to arrive to be with their family during this holiday season. Every house, establishments, and street corners are decorated with yuletide decors and lanterns, and Christmas lights are sight to behold during the night. Indeed, December is the happiest and colorful month in the Philippines. How I wish my December will be happy for me and my family.
