The Song on Repeat

So I recently fell in love with Irish band, Kodaline – as recent as April. And they had a concert here in the Philippines the month before that. Bummer. And I regret I missed the song “High Hopes” when it was hitting the airwaves. That was in 2013. And I never realized it was the trailer song for one of my favorite romantic films, “Love Rosie.”

Yeah, how could I have missed such a great band? And I’m right. They are underrated. They deserve more attention, but personally I think it’s fine how they are so big but they tend to remain humble. I love the lyrics and how wonderful vox Steve Garrigan’s voice is. And I love it even more when they do live sessions out on the streets or train stations. That’s so cool. And Steve’s voice is much more filled with emotions live than in studios that honestly, some live versions are actually better than the studio version ones.

So yeah, Kodaline’s “High Hopes” was the song on repeat for a month, and even till now. It’s so overplayed, I even sing it to Kai as a lullaby. In turn, he learned to sing it! Haha!

And I’ll never get tired of this music video.

Or this very soulful rendition of “All I Want.”

I have to reveal that Kodaline’s songs, three of them actually, were on repeat that time when we had a weekend getaway for SD Chelsea’s birthday In Tabuelan. I was off the Internet and Kodaline songs kept me at peace. That and an ebook.

But I’m not the only one who’s gone crazy over a song. My boy is also having his obsession phase with *drumroll please* The Gummy Bear song!!

Oh yeah. That song has been on repeat for more than a month now. He had heard it before on YouTube but once it was played in his school in April (the version where kids dance to it), he just couldn’t stop. And it goes with the dance too. So how hooked is he?

It would be the first thing he’d ask for in the morning. His eyes half-open after waking up and he goes, “Mommy, I want to dance Gummy Bear.”


In a day, that song would be played about 20 times and he’d dance to it maybe 10 times.


Nothing to learn here. Only sharing what’s going on. Lol because as I type this, Gummy Bear is playing.

Wanna dance to it? Check out this vid.

What song are you and your kid obsessing over right now?


  1. I’ve never heard of that band but I will be looking them up now! And I remember the gummy bear song when it first came out, it was all over the internet. I would listen to it all the time and loved the video.

  2. Oh my gosh I’m so glad my boy hasn’t discovered the gummy bear song 😂 right now he’s obsessed with “We Know the Way” from the Moana soundtrack so it’s good to know it could be worse!

  3. My Daughter is also obsessed with all the songs on the Moanna soundtrack. But on another note, as soon as I turned on the gummy bears song- she ran over to me and started dancing lol

  4. It’s the first time I’m hearing of this band, they’re good! Currently my niece and I are obsessed with that song “apples and bananas” lol.

  5. Thanks for introducing me to this band – never heard about it before. European bands tend to get lost in the shuffle here in the US, and rarely get a break. Still, they sound great – blessings!

  6. I love being introduced to new music! I never heard of this band but will definitely check them out now. I’m so like you and listen to my favorite songs on repeat endlessly!

  7. I hope I can be in a festival or a band concert, but maybe this is not gonna happen. It’s such amazing opportunitiy to meet and listen to it in real life haha.

  8. I love the first music video! It’s always great finding a new band, though sad when you discovered you’ve just missed them!

  9. For the longest time my daughter was obsessing over the soundtrack of Hamilton. But we have moved over to Dear Evan Hansen. It’s such a good musical. We are excited to see it when we get the chance.

  10. Hahaha! I wish I came up with the gummy bear song! It’s hilarious. Isn’t it funny how things that we’d likely shun irl are what we watch over and over again online?!
