Definitely one of the best local songs I’ve heard. Combining modern electronic and ethnic vibe, plus the amazing simple but cryptic lyrics showcasing the richness of our language. This is one masterpiece more people should hear.
“‘Wag nang paikutin ang isa’t isa
Lahat ng bagay ay malinaw na
Di na rin kailangang ipagpilitan pa
Di mo na kinakailangan pang magsalita…”
Alaala. Sakit. Pighati. Pagbangon.
Members (before the band was renamed “DeLara”) :
THIS SONG IS BEAUTIFUL BEYOND WORDS. Enough said.
One of the wonders of this blog is that apart from sharing music I like, I also get to share other people’s favorite OPM songs. A lot of editing was done for the blog today. And as I look back to previous posts, I remember the people who suggested that I share those songs and I unconsciously take a trip down memory lane. It’s magical.
This song was suggested by a friend I haven’t talked to for a while, shared while having dinner with other friends in our usual fastfood chain. Moments usually taken for granted, memories captured in a song, feelings only the four people part of that conversation will understand.
Nevertheless, I’m pretty sure this song would spark some wonderful memories and feelings for those who’ve listened to it before, or those who still have it in their playlist. (I’m definitely adding it to mine after this post.) Fans of Rivermaya from Rico to Bamboo to Jason and even up to now.
I chose Rico’s version. Because Rico is awesome. (Subjectively speaking.)
“The world would die and everything may lie
Still you shouldn’t cry
‘Cause time may pass
But longer than it’ll last
I’ll be by your side…”

This is the best Sugarfree music stream I can find with the absence of FB accounts and whatnot since the band disbanded in 2011.
The band’s vocalist, Ebe Dancel, currently leads a solo career.
Also, last April, ‘Sa Wakas, A New Pinoy Rock Musical’ featuring the songs of Sugarfree was staged in PETA. Maybe I’ll write about it soon. In the mean time, here’s their Facebook page:
Oh hello there, June. 🙂
Hindi ko man kayang bumalik sa umpisa, kaya kong magsimula ng panibago. Tungo sa mas magaganda pang mga bagay na naghihintay.

O may pag-asa pa na bumalik tayo sa umpisa?”

Kadalasan, sinasalamin daw ng mga letra ng awit ang mga opinyon at paraang mag-isip ng artist.
Isang magandang halimbawa nito ay kung paanong ipinahihiwatig ng kantang Delivery Boys ang mga opinyon ni Rez tungkol sa pagiging Filipino at pagiging bahagi ng bansang ito [at maaaring iba pa].
With the right mix of music and lyrics, message and LSS-factor, ang galing! 😀
“Batang-bata pa tayo at marami pang kailangang matutunan
Panalangin natin ‘di malilimutan
Sakit sa ulo ang patalong Pilipino
Na ‘di marunong makisama sa pagpaplano
Paano natin gagawin ito
Gagawin itong pagbabago…”
