Binili ko tong album na to hoping to get new songs for my lullaby playlist. Sa mga hindi nakakaalam, yung "Hanggang Kailan" ng Orange and Lemons ang ultimate pampatulog ng anak ko. Mula pa noong pagkapanganak nya hanggang ngayon (2 years and 9 months after), kapag pinapatugtog ko na yung kantang yon alam na nyang sleeping time na. Hindi nawawala ang Orange and Lemons sa playlist ko, lalo na yung "Love in the Land of Rubbershoes and Dirty Ice Cream" album. That album was, in Gorgoro's words, splendid.
So yung cover ng Kenyo CD e yung Orange and Lemons minus Clem, with Mcoy Fundales raising a hitchhiker's thumb. I trust ONL. So I bought that album on that trust, expecting renditions that could exceed the originals. Sa track list pa lang, nakakatakot na yung tracks 5, 6, and 7. "Love Me," "Reality," tsaka "Your Eyes".
Add to that a "disclaimer":
"Though there were hundreds of songs to choose from, we went with the ones that always stuck in our heads. These are the songs that we find ourselves humming along to when the last song syndrome attacks without warning."
Ok. So I'm assuming that these were THE songs that inspired some of Orange and Lemons hits.
Pinakinggan ko na yung CD sa bahay, at ang unang reaction ko ay "what the f*** is this shit?" Ok, natuwa ako dun sa "Sana" kasi masarap talaga sya kantahin. Akala ko pa naman, bibigyan nila ng kakaibang twist yung mga 80s hits. Wala. Makinig ka na lang sa album ni Christian Batista kung gusto mo ng matitinong karaoke rendition. Yes, you read it right. Karaoke.
"Radiosurfing" isn't really "radio surfing". It is more like "FivePesoKaraokeCrap".
1) PAKINGGAN MUNA ANG CD BAGO BILHIN.
2) Si Clem ang Orange and Lemons
3) Never trust hitchhikers
Rating out of 5 stars? Ika nga ni Master Shifu sa Kung Fu Panda, "There is now a level zero."
