I listen to a large range of songs from indie-alternative, to pop-rock, to kpop, to punk, to classical filipino, and so on and so forth. I don’t really settle for a certain genre because I listen to songs according to my mood, and I think everybody does.
Here’s a list of songs that will give you the feels if you’re in the friend zone:
- Oo – Up Dharma Down
(watch it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ts0cNzItMlw)
“Ako’y nandito lang hindi mo lang alam!! Matalino ka naman.”This song is for that one friend who is so manhid and is so bulag to ever know that you feel something more than friends. He is also every stupid not to notice how you have been there for all of his life, yet he chose to go after some girl who can’t even do half the things you’ve done for him.
- Suntok sa Buwan – Session Road
(listen to it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ECltwdZjpdI)”Hindi ko ito gusto, pero huwag kang lalayo.”
This is my favorite friendzoned song (but I honestly don’t know if it’s for friendzoned people hehe). This is for the girls who have fallen hard for one of their closest friends but refuse to confess unless the guy confesses first. She states that it is not her intention to fall for the guy but she does not want the friendship to end. Why do friendships have to end anyway if someone has fallen? You can always be friends! Feelings fade.
- Friend of Mine – Odette Quesada
(listen to it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P8HIyAsGEdM)”I’ve know you for so long you are a friend of mine, but is this all we’ll ever be?”
OH ONE OF MY FAVORITE TITA SONGS!! This is a ballad song that makes you weep through every line because you have to accept the fact that he/she will always be a friend of yours, although bittersweet, you still are friends and it makes you glad (glad nga ba?)
- Tanging Mahal – Regine Velasquez
(listen to it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gJ0IPPgYiXg)”Paano aking kaibigan, lihim ay katotohanan. Tanging mahal, sa puso ko’y ikaw lamang.”
This is one of my favorite classical filipino songs, which is obviously hard to sing because the Asia’s Songbird sang it. This song makes me think of the Hispanic era where the females cannot confess their feelings because it would make their family look desperate and walang delicadesa.
- You Belong With Me – Taylor Swift
(watch it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VuNIsY6JdUw)”Think I know where you belong, think I know it’s with me.”
This is a slap to all the stupid boys who end up falling for the pretty girls instead of the potato who ahve been there for all of his life!!! Goodness! Why do you always chose to get hurt when we can be happy together????!!!
Take time to listen to these songs! I hope these will give you the comfort you need whilst staying in the friendzone, you may also comment your favorite friendzoned songs in the comment section, and let’s be great friends together!! Friends.
