2012 Playlist

I don’t know, maybe it’s too little too late to make a writing about “2012 playlist”. The playlist I get from my iTunes’ ‘Top 25 Most Play’ Playlist, my cell-phone’s playlist and little bit help from my ear-worms *giggle*. Here are twenty singles which I listened in 2012. The order of the list is alphabetical because it seems hard work to consider which the best of the best is. (more…)

Hsinnad’s 2011 Music Chart

Some people said it’s too late to give the countdown of my play list of 2011. Well I think, it’s okay, we are still in January. It might be fool if I do make this list in December 2012.

I want to straight to the point. My 2011’s play list was full of up beat music and drastically mellow tracts, from lady gaga to Adele, from Frankmusic to Demi Lovato, to Britney Spears to Anggun. It’s mixed together. The play list followed what my heart felt at that year. Music is all about soul, isn’t it? So, I have made a list of 20 most-played songs in 2011. Here they are:

20. Criminal – Britney Spears


I listened to all the songs from Femme Fatale but when I came to this track, I skipped it. I thought this song is lame. When the video was released, I watched it till the end. Then I said, damn! I love this!

19. Decorate – Yuna

This song is a song from Malaysian singer and composer, Yuna. A recording company from USA gave her chance to make this album. I love the other songs from the album. But this single is special for me.

18. Till the World Ends – Britney Spears

You know this song can make you dancing, jumping and rolling till you are tired. Dancing every time every where till the world ends. Spooky?

The video is awesome. But it’s little bit too much.

17. What are Words – Christ Medina

I knew this song from my Singaporean friend. He told me that this song is his favorite. He also told me the background of the song. At the first time I listened to the song, I cried. Should I cry?

16. Mon Meilleur Amour –Anggun

MMA is the second single from the 5th album of Indonesian-born singer, Anggun, Echos. It’s French edition. The music element of this song sounds so European, simple yet elegance. The song tells the story about someone who lost his love. The music video is cool, made in Rumania.

15. Do It in the A.M – Frankmusic feat. Far East Movement

I don’t know sure why I love this song. I just enjoy the beat and feel happy.

14. Je Partirai – Anggun

Anggun’s voice is smooth and strong in the same time in this song. I can feel the pain in minimalist music element.

13. Who Says – Selena Gomez

I love the lyric and also the music. The lyric can raise you up. Well its lyric sounds so girly, I just take the positive side that you can be whatever you want to be, just do it and never let people make you down.

12. Born This Way – Lady Gaga

This single is the perfect choice to open an album. Congratulation Mama Monster! Its words are so meaningful for many people.

11. Wish You were Here – Avril Lavigne

Here’s the other song which can make me cry in 2011. Just listen to this and you’ll know the reason.

10. Rolling in the Deep – Adele

One thing that can make me fall in love to this song is the sound of drum. It’s so intensive, shaking my ears off.

9. Skyscraper – Demi Lovato

I don’t wanna talk more about this song. I just don’t want to.

8. E.T. – Katy Perry

I like this single! Its lyric, music, and video clip are totally awesome. The concept made is total! The song of California Girls and Peacock mean nothing compared to this song.

7. Judas – Lady Gaga

A second single from Born This Way! The word of Ju-das… Juda-a-a-s! rotated in my mind for about one month! Damn you Gaga!

6. Titanium – David Guetta feat. Sia

This track is featured in David Guetta’s album. It’s just like a love at the first sight.

5. On the Floor – Jennifer Lopez feat. Pitbull

4. Someone Like You – Adele

Everybody knows this song. If you have just been dumped then listening to this song, never ever think to suicide!

3. Part Rock Anthem – LMFAO

Everybody is shuffling! LOL

Some people said this song didn’t deserve to be on the top of Billboard Chart for weeks.

Well, some other people said the contrary. It’s the matter of choice.

2. Moves Like Jagger – Maroon 5 feat. Christina Aguilera

Marron 5 is back with a catchy single. This song is fun! But actually I don’t like the Christina Aguilera’s part in this song. I can’t catch the connection.

1. Set Fire to the Rain – Adele

YAY! ADELE! Anyone doesn’t agree to me? Please raise your hand!

Anggun – Echoes (An Album Review)

After she has sold million albums over 30 countries from four albums of hers. And has been hypnotizing us with his singles like “Snow on the Sahara”, “Chrysalis”, “In Your Mind” and “Crazy”.

I love almost of the tracks. I adore the music that given in this album. A combination of pop, rock, orchestra and little bit world. She produced this album under her own label, April Earth for almost two years. Three of my favorite songs from this album is Only Love, Buy Me Happiness, and Silent Vow.

I hope this album will be the real ‘elevation’ of her carrier after her previous “hip-hop” album, Elevation.
