(SPOT.ph) We totally get it if the lyrics "Judging from the way you make me high/
Ooh, it's worth it" still hold a place in your heart after all these years. The True Faith song was an absolute ballad of the time—and yup, the nostalgia remains. The OPM track has solidified itself as a core part of '90s-era pop culture but the funny thing is, most people didn't even know it was by a Filipino band when it was first released.

“When "Perfect" [first] came out, the DJs didn't tell the people that it was a local band. Everybody was thinking that this is a foreign band. It sounded foreign, sounded new, so people were debating whether it was local or it was foreign,” Eugene Marfil, guitarist of True Faith, tells Summit Media's OG Channel. The breezy pop track was so different Marfil shares he even had an argument with someone he was dating that time over whether it was OPM or not.
The track "Perfect" is arguably what brought True Faith to the forefront. They released a demo tape of the ballad in 1993 and soon became a mainstay of the music scene. Now we revisit the magic with brothers-turned-bandmates Meds and Eugene in this OG exclusive video. Check it out below:
