Gin Blossoms Songs I Want to Hear Live When They Perform Here in Manila

I grew up with the 90’s music scene and one of my favorite bands during this era was Gin Blossoms.

Taken By Cars at the Globe Flagship Store Launch

Taken By Cars at the Globe Event

A few weeks ago, I was at the Globe Flagship Store Launch at the Ayala Museum. This was the official launch of Globe’s renovated store in Greenbelt 4, with a more customer-friendly atmosphere.
