Us, Filipinos worth music so much that we already have some of their own criteria if the song is going to be a hit or a miss. Notice how you can find several OPM songs that don’t make it to the cut and not that well-loved and appreciated by the Pinoys? Artists and composers have to know that there are a number of particular things people, Pinoys, are especially looking for in our own OPM songs. Which are those?
Admit it, what we see first especially when we are watching an OPM song on the television is the singer, along with the song itself only comes second. Pinoys are searching for the renowned fresh-faced celebrity that will sing the song for them and make them feel like they are serenaded. Take for example, Daniel Padilla’s “Nasa Iyo Na Ang Lahat”. It is loved and well-received by the Pinoy masses because Daniel Padilla is the most popular and most famous adolescent celebrity at the moment at the Philippines. Imagine the song being sang by a brand new and upcoming singer, I do not think that it would actually appeal that much and make it as large as it’s compared to Daniel Padilla singing it. We adore celebrities so much and we have that cute crushes on them that watching them only using their adorable faces and moves while singing for us make it impossible for us to resist them! Right?
Who have not already sung their hearts out having an OPM song? I guess we all did! Most of us have our own preferred OPM tunes that we will always treasure and have a spot within our heart. Many OPM songs that are consistent in the top spot have something in common: Pinoys love them and can associate with them. Feeling broken up? Cry your heart out while singing the famous karaoke song “Bakit Nga Ba Mahal Kita?” By Roselle Nava, in love with a friend and afraid of falling even deeper? Belt out the “Paano Na Kaya?” Song by Bugoy Drillon, or if you have that special crush on somebody who you believe is ideal despite of being simple, sing that “Simpleng Tulad Mo” by Daniel Padilla. The matter is, regardless of what you’re feeling and no matter what your present mood is, there are loads of OPM songs for you!You Must be liking our show Pinoy TV Shows if you watch it.
I’m one of the men and women who are really surprised about Maja Salvador’s brand new song and album, but I have to admit, I love it! It’s catchy song definitely is a winner for me. Consider listening to Maja Salvador’s “Dahan Dahan” in case you still haven’t. We love good catchy and upbeat music every now and then especially while we’re on hiatus listening to senti ones. Let us not forget the songs that every generation in the Philippines understands. Bayani Agbayani’s “Ocho, Ocho”, Vhong Navarro’s feel-good novelty tune “Pamela One”, and Willie Revillame’s “Boom Tarat Tarat!” . All these are still sang, danced and appreciated by many Pinoys across the world due to their catchy songs.
