Last August 17 was truly a blast at the SM MOA Arena all thanks to IN THE MIX 2017! MMI Live, together with PLDT and SMART, showcased six great actsDNCE, Daya, Dua Lipa, Zara Larsson, Two Door Cinema Club, and 5 Seconds of Summer. It was an unforgettable night for all the fans who danced and sang along! Though it has only been days since that spectacular night, I’m sure I’m not the only one feeling the PCD or Post Concert Depression here. #sepanx

In the Mix 2017: One Huge Party with DNCE, Two Door Cinema Club, 5SOS, and More

So if you’re feeling a bit down from PCD, hopefully these tracks can relive the fun that night!

What I Like About You – 5 Seconds of Summer

In The Mix 2017 3

5SOS’s cover of the Romantic’s 1980’s smash hit What I Like About You is a great way to kick off the list. That iconic guitar riff and sudden drum beat? Yaaasss. It makes me feel a lot younger because of all that energy.

Body Moves – DNCE

In The Mix 2017 12

Everyone showed their moves at the arena when DNCE played this! I’m not quite a dancer but I just found my “Body Moves” to the song when it played!

Undercover Martyn – Two Door Cinema Club

In The Mix 2017 5

An oldie but truly a goodie. You’ll always have to do the clap at the beginning of the song.

Dare – Daya

In The Mix 2017 8

Dare is a moving song by the 18-year-old American singer. The Sit Still, Look Pretty hitmaker expressed her love to her Filipino fans in between sets and that’s why we are daring so high to be with her on stage!

Blow Your Mind – Dua Lipa

In The Mix 2017 9

To be honest, it’s my first encounter with Dua Lipa in any sort so I was pretty looking forward to her performance. And clearly she did not disappoint! She definitely left an impression.

New Rules – Dua Lipa

In The Mix 2017 10

Keeping up with the #kween momentum, here’s another Dua Lipa track, cos she’s just so good.

What You Know – Two Door Cinema Club

In The Mix 2017 6

An indie classic for the seasoned fans. It’s that song every TDCC avid fans long to hear in their setlist.

Disconnected – 5 Seconds of Summer

In The Mix 2017 11

For me, Disconnected is one of the underrated tracks of 5SOS. An ode to how people get so distracted easily with the fast-paced technology, it sends out a message that people should just enjoy the moment as is. Shoutout to the people who enjoyed the show without recording the whole set or taking pics all the time. You the real MVP!

Symphony –  Zara Larsson

In The Mix 2017 7

Along with the whimsical melodies of Clean Bandit, MOA Arena became part of Zara’s symphony. And we hope that we could be part of that again!

Don’t Let Me Down – Daya

In The Mix 2017 14

Remember that time when Don’t Let Me Down was the go-to party song of almost everyone? Well I do and when Daya sang it, it was the perfect time to dance to it!

Lush Life – Zara Larsson

In The Mix 2017 13

An ultimate mood booster for y’all! We can sing and dance to this, all night, all summer!

Cake by the Ocean – DNCE

In The Mix 2017 2

I’d really like to end the playlist with this 2015 hit. It is the perfect set-ender and who can forget that moment when Joe Jonas was dancing and waving the Philippine Flag while confetti was showering all over the crowd?

Well, it’s only a short list but for me, it should get the job done! Along with that, I can’t wait for the third installment of In the Mix. With such tough acts to follow, I just wonder who’ll be the line-up for next year’s show.

What do you think about the list? Tell us what’s in your In The Mix playlist!
