Remember December

I remember you and I
We were standing still in time
As we watched the starlight shining bright
We dream of forever
We’ll be together
I remember December time

A Song Maybe Ghosts Know

As I was flipping through TV scenes and repeatedly pressing the button, I stopped when I realized what was happening: stones floating by themselves and building a bridge, ghostly crowds with transfixed gazes moving in circles. They seemed to be dancing to a song. But, to the kid that I was, it seemed wrong to dance to a funeral march. Then again, it sounded like it was played by Lurch of the Addams Family.

Hearing Winners

Have you ever listened to a song and thought it was a winner? Some months ago, a friend posted “Monumento”, a creation of veteran composer Jungee Marcelo and is one of his two entries for this year’s Himig Handog P-Pop Love Songs, a songwriting and music video competition. It is interpreted by two of the…

The Blur Last Night

We had a pasta-pizza dinner then another walk and hung out somewhere far from the crowd. That quiet was replaced by so much noise because they danced and we sang the hour away.

Not The Same (Christmas) Song

Some used only parts of it. Others used the whole song. Whichever, it was the same song for every number. My guess is that Marvin and the rest of the people at the party had enough of it in spite of the song being good.

The Unheard Muse in the Unseen Museum

I enter her temple. Invisible, constant, unmanned, delicate, and bizarre. It is a shrine built by the winds, carried by the sun, and veiled by the moon. She is the muse and the place is hers, a museum. Its windows are on the ceiling. Its solitary door remains on the floor. Without her, the hall is quiet, cold, and dark. But it is not empty.

Choosing “Mary” (It’s Not Sting)

I’ve never heard it in its entirety. Even this morning, when it was playing on the radio, I skipped it and surfed for other stations but when I couldn’t find a good song, I went back to it. My choices were sappy, angry, or “Mary”. I chose “Mary”.

Triangulo | Struck a Chord

I think I just discovered my song for the month. It’s called “Triangulo”, written by Thyro Alfaro and Yumi Lacsamana. The duo and Jeric Medina performed the song, which was also the Grand Prize Winner for Philpop 2015. With just its opening bars, I already knew I would fall in love with it. And I was right!

Being Remembered | Just Having Fun

Well, it’s your birthday
Let’s act like it is
And just go crazy
Do what we want with no reason why
Life ain’t long enough
So let’s celebrate
