10 Songs We Want to Hear at the Eraserheads' Next Gig
You know, other than the usual favorites.
(SPOT.ph) OPM fans were in for a treat this week, when the Eraserheads held a surprise reunion gig during the launch of PLDT and Smart’s new logos. To the delight of the unsuspecting crowd, they performed a total of 18 songs, including some all-time favorites like "Superproxy," "Ang Huling El Bimbo," "Alapaap," and "Magasin" on top of other tracks like "Popmachine," "Maling Akala," and "Julie Tearjerky."
During their gig, lead vocalist Ely Buendia even hinted at the possibility of more gigs soon. In our excitement, we couldn't help but dig into the band's extensive discography to come up with our own list of songs we'd love to watch them perform live. Shares yours in the comments!
This is the song that launched a thousand–if not million–road trips. No car? No problem! No driving experience? No sweat. Just press "play" and pretend you're cruising.
If you’re trying to ask someone out and you don’t know what to say, just sing this song. They’ll say yes. Shhh, just trust us.
"Huwag Mo Nang Itanong"
You want hugot? Eraserheads has been at it since the '90s. "Huwag Mo Nang Itanong" may be the national anthem of everyone who's sawi, in denial, or torpe.
Nursery rhymes in a song mashup never sounded cooler.
We still don’t know what happened to Kim’s sembreak, but all this wondering made for a fun, vacation-themed song. (We really miss summer.)
At this point, we're just daydreaming about the moment we hear Ely belt out "Huwag naaaang malumbaaay..." again.
There are a lot of controversial theories surrounding this song, with the most popular one being that it's about an alleged rape-murder of a '90s sexy star named Pepsi Paloma. What makes this theory more shocking is that the song alludes to Tito, Vic, and Joey as the masterminds.
This track perfectly captures your life because well, let's be real here: We all put on masks before we face the day. Plus, this was reportedly the last music video that included Ely.
"Para Sa Masa"
Is this Eraserheads’ open letter to the public? Is this an aggravated response to a public who they felt did not appreciate their music evolution...or is it a simple thank you note? We're still speculating, even to this day.
Before Adele's heart-wrenching "Chasing Pavements," there was "Kailan." For the pinaasa or forever alone, this song is for you.
