There I was, an empty piece of a shell,
Just minding my own world;
Without even knowin’ what love and life were all about
Then you came,
You brought me out of the shell;
You gave the world to me
And before I knew, there I was so in love with you

You gave me a reason for my being
And I love what I’m feelin’
You gave me a meaning to my life
Yes, I’ve gone beyond existing
And it all began when I met you

–When I Met You, Apo Hiking Society   

This doujinshi was inspired by the song “When I Met You” by Apo. Please listen to it ;v; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7bgbeNgE7No

I sketched this after the last episode last December, and was only able to complete it now. ;v; Hopefully, I would be able to do the same for the other doujins I sketched in my computer, so watch out for more. XD Hope you like it as much as I loved creating it. My bbys. ♥♥♥

AMERICAN JUNK
Composed and lyrics by Jim Paredes
Sung by Apo Hiking Society

Leave me alone to my third world devices
I don’t need your technology
You just want my natural resources
And then you leave me poor and in misery
Third world blues is what I got
Troubles, yes I got a lot

Chorus:
(American Junk)
Get it out of my bloodstream
(American Junk)
Get it out of my system
(American Junk)
I can only take so much
(American Junk)
Gotta get back to who I am

You call it new music
I call it pollution
You music I now see on my television
(American Top 40)
Why is it now I can only sing
(Da da da da)
In English language that you people bring
Why is it now that they only play
Top 40 music on TV and radio

It’s been so long since I had
A glance of what I think I really am

[Repeat chorus]

Day 07 - A song that is your guilty pleasure

I was gonna post a BSB or ‘NSync song but that’d be too easy. I dabble in Tagalog songs every now and then although I must admit my Tagalog isn’t very good. I don’t really go out and discover more Filipino music; I have a playlist of about 50 or so songs that I stick to. I’m pretty sure this song was originally by APO Hiking Society and Parokya ni Edgar decided to cover it. Both versions are pretty songs in their own right though I must say I’m partial to this version by Parokya ni Edgar.

EWAN
Nilikha ni Louie Ocampo
Itinitik ni Winnie Arrietta
Inawit ng Apo Hiking Society
Ikalawang Gantimpala sa Ikalawang Paligsahan ng mga Musikang Popular ng Kalakhang Maynila (1979)

Hindi ko alam kung bakit ka ganyan
Mahirap kausapin at ‘di pa namamansin
Di mo ba alam ako’y nasasaktan
Ngunit di bale na basta’t malaman mo na

Koro:
Mahal kita, mahal kita
Hindi ‘to bola
Ngumiti ka man lang sana
Ako’y nasa langit na
Mahal kita, mahal kita
Hindi ‘to bola
Sumagot ka naman, wag lang, ewan

Sana naman itigil mo na ‘yang
Kakasabi ng ewan at anong bola na naman yan
Bakit ba ganyan, binata’y ‘di alam
Na ang ewan ay katulad na rin ng oong inaasam

[Ulitin ang koro]

La, la, la, la

[Ulitin ang koro]

Sumagot ka naman, wag lang, ewan

“Anna”, Apo Hiking Society

(I sometimes write things that I tag with #fiction.  I write about a character named Anna, who is me and everyone else–kind of like Di’s Charlie, I’d like to think.  I was thinking of writing a poem after her and then I remembered that there’s an Apo song called exactly that.  So no poem anytime soon.)

I most certainly did not post this because I found that @machistado follows me on here. It’s not like I felt blood rush to my face or anything.  I mean, I don’t blush.  Hehe, hi.  

Tuyo Na'ng Damdamin
Silent Sanctuary
Tuyo Na'ng Damdamin

Lyrics:

Minsan kahit na pilitin mong uminit ang damdamin

Di siya susunod, at di maglalambing
Minsan di mo na mapigil mapansin
Na talagang wala nang naiiwan na pagmamahal

 [Refrain]

At kahit na anong gawin
Di mo na mapilit at madaya
Aminin sa sarili mo
Na wala ka nang mabubuga

 Parang ‘sang kandila na nagdadala

Ng ilaw at liwanag
Nauubos rin sa magdamag

 (Instrumental)

Minsan di mo na mapigil mapansin
Na talagang wala nang naiiwan na pagmamahal

(Repeat Refrain)

Di na madaig o mabalik ang dating matamis na kahapon
Pilitin ma'y tuyo na'ng damdamin

Tuyo na'ng damdamin (repeat 4x)

Talking about sense memory. I grew up listening to Apo Hiking Society songs. My parents would play the multplex tape (Is that the right term?) and we’d sing along holding the cover-containing-lyrics. :)

Paano by Apo on the background

♫♩Subukan mong magmahal o giliw ko. Kakaibang ligayan'ng matatamo. ♪♬

Panalangin
APO Hiking Society

APO Hiking Society - Panalangin

Panalangin ko sa habang buhay
Makapiling ka, makasama ka
Yan ang panalangin ko
At hindi papayag, ang pusong ito
Mawala ka, sa ‘king piling
Mahal ko iyong dinggin

This should be a love song for God. <3
Anyway, this song just came on and the lyrics are beautiful.
