SPOT-Q: What is your song for Manila?

Spot Q asks: What song would you dedicate to Manila?


( Since hearing about the Manila that inspired the The Hotdog band to write their seminal "Manila" song, a question lodged itself in’s collective mind: What song do you dedicate to Manila? It’s a question that seems easy enough to answer, but one, we later learned, required a lot of thinking. It stayed with us long enough that we started asking, first musicians we encountered during nights out what their song for Manila was, and then later, celebrities we encountered on the job. The Cosmo Centerfolds especially, were only too generous with their responses, singing parts of their chosen songs to us; we’d like to consider it, a modern day harana.

See what Mark Escueta, Jim Paredes, Mikael Daez, Paulo Avelino, and Diego Mapa have to say! asks: What song would you dedicate to Manila?
