1. The Fault In Our Stars official motion picture soundtrack. A few of the best singers and songwriters came together for the soundtrack of this year's highly-anticipated movie adaptation of John Green's novel. And while we're trying so hard to patiently wait for all the songs to be released, we've compiled a few of them for you. Listen to it while you're on the road during Visita Iglesia, or while you're at home and enjoying your time alone.

2. Paolo Onesa's album Pop Goes Standards. The Voice Philippines' heartthrob will make his way to your hearts with his own rendition of the tunes we've loved. We can't get enough of his version of Adele's "Skyfall." Paolo originally performed it as one of his contest pieces, but it is now a part of his first album Pop Goes Standards. The album also includes covers of "When I Was Your Man," "Elesi," "Marry Me," and more!


3. Birdy's latest album Fire Within. While her song "Not About Angels" for TFIOS is her most famous one yet, this 17-year-old British singer-songwriter has more to offer. Birdy showcases her achingly soft voice in Fire Within, which can bring you a wide range of emotions—great for contemplating about life, in general, during the holy week.

4. Myk Perez's album My Acoustic. Myk's specialty is coming up with great acoustic versions of famous songs using his cool voice. Our favorite? His version of Ed Sheeran's "Give Me Love," which he first did during his stint on The Voice Philippines. His album My Acoustic also includes covers of "Runaway," "Fix You," and his own composition "Honey Under the Moon."

5. Coldplay's latest album Ghost Stories. Apparently, most people think that it's an album about uncoupling, since the band's lead vocalist Chris Martin just split up with Gwyneth Paltrow. Whatever it may be about, we can't deny that Coldplay didn't disappoint. We've waited for a new album from them for quite a long time, and Ghost Stories is just painfully perfect.
