There's nothing more dramatic than sitting in a shuttle, leaning on your window and watching the rain while allowing yourself to wallow in your what-ifs and reminisce about your TOTGA. If you're still looking for the soundtrack of your lovelife and are craving to go walling at the nearest waiting shed, here are some tunes to help get you in that reflective mood:


1. "Basang-basa Sa Ulan" by Aegis
 


This is definitely the best go-to song when you're overflowing with emotion. There's nothing like internalizing the lyrics and belting them out with all your heart. Who cares if you're out of tune? We know that the buwis-buhay vocals are your guilty pleasure. BTW, have you considered auditioning for the Rak of Aegis musical?



2. "Alone" by Heart
 


Another classic, slow-rock song of hugot proportions, "Alone" is all about yearning to be alone with someone, but being unable to admit it. (Girl, aminin mo na kasi.) This is best sung in a crowded videoke bar, where your friends can use their beer bottles as pretend mics.



3. "Hello" by Adele
 


Adele gets us so well, it's almost scary. "Hello" is for that ex you want to message on FB everytime you find yourself awake at 2 a.m. (pro-tip: don't.)



4. "Higher" by Rihanna
 


In an interview with Vogue
, Rihanna likened this song to a drunk voice mail. It's pretty short and bitin -- very much like that bad-decision-boyfriend you just broke up with.


5. "Mariposa" by Sugarfree


It's not as famous as "Hari ng Sablay" but the lyrics of "Mariposa" are just as tagos sa puso, especially the part that goes: "Nagsisising gigising sa katotohanan 'di ka naman talaga akin." Hindi siya sa 'yo, girl
. Hindi siya sa 'yo. 


6. "I Can't Make You Love Me" by Bonnie Raitt
 

 


This is the ultimate breakup senti song. Heck, it makes even people in happy relationships shed a tear or two. Go lang friend, this is your license to emote. 


7. "Nothing Compares 2 U" by Sinead O'Connor

 


You think you've moved on, until something that reminds you of your ex reduces you to a crying mess. As they say, fake it 'til you make it.
Ikanta mo na lang 'yan.


8. "I Will Always Love You" by Whitney Houston

 


We're not sure how many women have sung this in their showers, but it's undeniable that this is one of the best hugot-birit songs of all time. It's impossible not to belt this out
 when this comes up in your play list. So gather 'round, hold hands, and all together now: "And IIIIiiii... will always loooooove YOUUUuuuu!"
