Braving the rush hour is a total challenge, especially these days, when the heavy traffic could suck out every last bit of your patience. Need to de-stress? Here are 10 hugot songs that every EDSA warrior could definitely relate to. Add them to your playlist before leaving the office!
1. “Stranded by Plumb
“And I don’t wanna be
Stranded, stranded, stranded, stranded”
That moment when you realize that you’re going to be in the same place for a very looooooooong time.
2. “Stuck in a Moment” by U2
“You’ve got to get yourself together
You’ve got stuck in a moment
And now you can’t get out of it”
Because we all deserve a pat on the backs for enduring this.
3. “It Won’t Be Long” by The Beatles
“It won’t be long yeah, yeah, yeah
It won’t be long yeah, yeah, yeah”
Please tell us this is not just wishful thinking.
4. “Closing Time” by Semisonic
“Time for you to go out to the places you will be from
We seriously think Semisonic was pertaining to “home” here. Because we just want to go home.
5. “Right Back Where We Started From” by Army Navy
“We got to get right back to where we started from”
Why do bad things happen to good people? All we want is to kick back and relax after a long day at work.
6. “I Don’t Want to Wait” by Paula Cole
“I don’t want to wait
For our lives to be over”
Because we want to know right now if we can go home or not.
7. “Waiting in Vain” by Annie Lennox
“I don’t wanna wait in vain for your love;
I don’t wanna wait in vain for your love.”
Will the MRT finally come? Will we be able to squeeze ourselves into a northbound bus? Have we been waiting in vain for hours?
8. “Take Me Home” by Cash Cash ft. Bebe Rexha
“Round in circles
Here we go
With the highest highs
And the lowest lows.”
For one, we all wish someone could just magically whisk us away from the ginormous parking lot that is EDSA and take us home because WE HAVE BEEN LITERALLY STANDING IN THE SAME SPOT FOR FOUR HOURS AND WE HAVEN’T MOVED AN INCH. Also an anthem for those who have successfully boarded a bus or a train that will take them home.
9. “Forever” by Chris Brown
“It’s you, and me
Movin’ at the speed of light into eternity”
HAHAHAHAHA we wish.
10. “Daylight” by Matt and Kim
“Sit back and wave through the daylight”
Oh wow, it’s already 4:00 a.m. and I’m still in Makati. Maybe I should just camp out at the office tomorrow.
