Album Review: Himig Handog P-Pop Love Songs 2016

Himig Handog P-Pop Love Songs 2016

Himig Handog P-Pop Love Song 2016 is the 7th compilation of top selected songwriting entries submitted from all over the country to be interpreted by some of the great OPM artists of today under ABS-CBN’s Star Music. As an aspiring songwriter too, I would love to give this set of songs a review. My review for this particular album will be tackling each one track individually instead of considering the cohesiveness of the tracks like I usually to do in my album reviews. The entries are ordered according to their official tracklist and not yet sequenced according to my preference. At the end of the list, I will reveal my Top 5 songs list as well as my Top 5 Music Videos. Let’s begin to immerse in the freshest OPM songs…

Mark Maliwanag – Dance With My Father (Cover)

This is just a throwback of my birthday greeting video I made for my father I think last 2013. The song is Dance With My Father by Luther Vandross. It’s just an instant idea I had in mind so the recordings and arrangement were bit rushed so I never given the chance to polish things. But, I said to myself, it’s just for my dad, so I don’t need to sound perfect to him.

Angela Aki (アンジェラ・アキ), is a singer-songwriter pianist born on September 15, 1977 who I consider to be my most favorite and followed J-Pop artist.

NP: 24 Hours by Corrinne May

It’s easy to lose track
It’s tempting to look back
Fill our hearts with regret
For all we couldn’t do
For all we should have done
But didn’t take the time to
Well it’s not too late, we’ve still got today

This is another Corrinne May’s song titled, “24 Hours”, where #020 Reflection of the Day comes from. The lyrics of the song and the sweet voice of Corrinne May can make you reflect about how you are spending your time and how you supposedly live your life.

I recommend you listen to this song. It’s definitely worth of our limited time.

NP: Crooked Lines by Corrinne May

God writes straight with crooked lines
He takes the mess we make in life
He turns our groaning into perfect rhyme
Hidden by the veil of time,
The Wisdom of His love’s design
God writes straight with crooked lines

This song of Corrinne May is what inspired #019 Reflection of the Day. Crooked lines is under her album with the same title. It tells us about how our mess can be turned into good message, trials into triumphs and test into testimonials. Be blessed and transformed from being a victim into victor.

NP: I Can Go The Distance (Anthony Callea’s Cover)

Like a shooting star, I will go the distance
I will search the world, I will face it’s harms
I don’t care how far, I can go the distance
Till I find my hero’s welcome, waiting in your arms

I love the version of Anthony Callea next to the original. This song speaks for me. The reason why I desire to go a distance is because I want my loved ones to be proud of me, the people whom I truly belong to.

Album Review: Silent Sanctuary – Langit. Luha.

Silent Sanctuary: Langit. Luha. Album Cover

Silent Sanctuary’s Langit. Luha. is the OPM band’s 5th studio album which was released digitally on April 26, 2015 and, almost a month later, launched its physical copies on May 24. It consists of 8 tracks with its carrier singles, Sa Piling Mo and Pasensya Ka Na.

Langit. Luha. — the catchy title of the band’s 2nd album under their new record label (Ivory Records) brings back the impression that Silent Sanctuary (SS) usually makes with their previous album titles (such as Fuchsiang Pag-ibig and Mistaken for Granted). Is it worth the langit-leveled hype? Or will it make us cry in a bad way?
