I love old OPM!
I wish it could be like the old days where we release actual OPM.. we have something unique in our music, too bad we got too insecure and couldn't be bothered to release better music and just simply rely on old stuff, cover them over and over again.
Despite Freddie Aguilar's reputation now as a pedophile.. he still made great music like Anak. That's song's really great to the point that it even got translated into soooo many languages.
APO Hiking Society! Their entire discography is REALLY AWESOME! And the artists nowadays just keep on making covers of their old stuff! They had an original sound and their lyrics can be inspiring, touching and funny and something you will be able to relate to!
Lea Salonga's tagalog ballads are really great too! She got fame worldwide cos of her prowess as a broadway goddess, but still her classics like Nandito Ako and Bakit Labis Kitang Mahal is something we love hearing from time to time!
And even the old stuff from 90s.. like PNE, Eheads even Roselle Nava, Jolina Magdangal, Carol Banawa, etc...
Now, we just either try to hard to imitate other countries or just keep reviving old tracks. It's very sad...
Although I'm still a fan of Gloc 9!!! I really love his lyrics! A real makata!
