Check out these tracks from our favorite homegrown acts that will surely give you the fuzzies and make you think of a special someone!
1. "Leona" by Carousel Casualties
But oh, when you waltz into the room
It’s a turbulence before a plane crash
It doesn’t matter where I land
As long as I can hold your hand
We all have a "Leona" in our lives a.k.a. the object of our affection who seems quite unreachable. This can come off as a sad song, but it also reminds us to be a little more hopeful when it comes to pursuing love.
2. "Sana Ikaw" by Rivermaya
Sana ikaw na lang sinta
Sana naman may pag-asa pa
Siguro naman mas sasaya sa piling mo'y liligaya
Sana ikaw na lang sinta.
This heartbreaking song talks about acceptance by conveying that there's nothing we can do with a love that has lost its fire. There's no hatred or bitterness here; it only means that you never cease to love no matter how much you've been hurt.
3. "Kahit Na Anong Sabihin Nila" by Unit 406
Kahit na anong sabihin ng iba
Pangako ko sa 'yo na walang mag-iiba
Wala, walang magdidikta
Kahit na anong sabihin ng iba
With this band invading the music scene one track at a time, they send a powerful message that nothing else matters when it comes to your relationship. At the end of the day, the love you have for each other is the most important thing you should hold on to.

Ang panalangin ko
Ako sanang naiisip mo
Bago pumikit ang iyong mata
Ayokong managinip nang mag-isa.

5. "Spaces" by MilesExperience
Dim the lights and find your way to me.
Through the space and time
Somehow, I'll wait
Feel the tension rise, and let it be
Let the heavens know
We'll soon be free.
The message of this song is clear to us: we must fight through the spaces (physical or not) that can come beteween a relationship. It's all about finding a halfway point and hoping to meet your love there.

Maybe we might want to settle down, just be near
