That Remind Us
of the “Friendster Era”
By Blair Perez
Remember those days when Friendster used to be our world? Ah, that nostalgic feeling of putting “shout outs” on our own pages and viewing our crush’s profile just so they could notice us. Heck, some of us even learn basic HTML and CSS codes just to beautify our “layouts”!
It also used to be a great time for music. Pop punk bands are everywhere, and a lot of well-written songs were released during this time. And we want those who visit our Friendster profiles know what we’re listening to.
Below are some of the songs we used to include in our Friendster profile via music widgets like Mixpod and Videokeman:
Ne-Yo’s songs made us want to sing along, dance, or both. Mad is definitely one of our favorites. Admit it, it’s also one of those songs that you listen to when you’re not in good terms with your SO.
This is one of those songs you hear over the radio for the first time and the next thing you know, it’s become your favorite song.
Welcome to the Black Parade
From “emo” bangs to thick eyeliners, who could forget the era when everyone admired and wanted to look like Gerard Way?
“No Air” shows so much soul and emotion, it’s hard not to sing along to it. Who else loses air trying to sing the bridge part?
This song is always next in queue after “No Air”, or sometimes it’s the other way around. You can never go wrong with the soothing voices of Chris Brown and Keri Hilson that gives us a total karaoke moment.
Moment of Truth
Remember those days when you’d listen to FM Static every night while texting someone over your Motorola flip phone?
Fall for You
This song gave us the ultimate feels, and you know it will be another round of nostalgia when one starts singing this in the karaoke.
Your Guardian Angel
If you have a music widget in your profile and you don’t have this song back then, you must be from another planet. You’re even one of the coolest kids in class when you know how to play this on a guitar!
