Damn, you feel really strongly about this. Whatever, I'm just jamming along to this:

Bakit Nga Ba Mahal Kita - Roselle Nava (Music+Lyrics) - YouTube

One of my favorite Tagalog songs right now. To those who don't speak the language, it means "Why do I love you?"

actually, that's one of my favorite tagalog songs.. but ouch to the lyrics though lol.. so sad.



Muli (Again) is a nice tagalog love song too

or Ngiti (Smile)



Bakit Labis Kitang Mahal (Why I love you so much)


I love OPM (Original Pilipino Music) hehhee
Pangako Sa'yo (Promise You)


It's so sad that our OPM is now influenced by KPOP music now adays.
I wish other Filipino artist or those album producers to stop doing such thing they
are killing the real OPM music.

Here are more of my favorite Tagalog love songs


[High Quality Sounds] Pangarap Ko Ang Ibigin Ka by Regine Velasquez with Lyrics - YouTube (Pangarap ko ang ibigin ka - I dream to love you)


Pangako - YouTube
(Pangako - Promise)

Some NON-LOVE songs...here's one about my hometown in the Philippines.

Cotabato by Asin - YouTube
The song has a nice message: Christian or Muslim, we are still siblings (kapatid sa kapatid) not only as Filipinos, but as human beings.


Asin; Pagbabalik - YouTube
(Pagbabalik - Homecoming)
I think this song speaks loudly to a lot of Filipinos outside of the Philippines.


Freddie Aguilar Anak (original version) - YouTube
(Anak- Child)

Yeah, I'm more into Filipino folk music than I am into the modern stuff

Yeah, it's a bit different when you grow up in the United States and try to listen to Filipino music. A lot of the Filipino music I listen to was a direct influence from my parents (despite the fact that my dad is from Mindanao and speaks Bisaya and Maguindanao, and my mom is from Illocos Norte and speaks Illokano), and only have recently discovered more things that I like and dislike about the music.

Definitely, a lot of my favorite love songs are in Tagalog, since its MUCH easier to express feelings in Tagalog than in English (hell, almost any language is more expressive about feelings than English is....)

I feel that much of the music coming out of the Philippines nowadays has become sort of too much like J-Pop or K-Pop,not that it's bad thing, but I have MUCH less exposure to those genres than I do with American and other Western music.

Anyways, back to the music: I sort of like this song for some reason

Gloc 9 - Hinahanap Ng Puso (with lyrics) - YouTube (Hinahanap ng puso- Look for your heart)

I believe "Hispanic" was popularized by the census bureau in the 1970's to account for the influx of population from south of our border. The tag really carries no identifying qualities beyond that.

I would say "Latino" is apt, as that has a linguistic connotation.

I love all Filipino Folk Songs & Dances from Luzon to Mindanao
it's either influences or from our indigenous fellow Filipinos.


you'll see some differences and similarities
and how we celebrate our fiesta both in cities and barrio or small village..
Hope all these will still appreciate of new generation because of new music coming out
sometimes they forget to appreciate their own folk music and dance.



Catholic religion has a big role in our culture those Filipino Catholic Christian.

This is how Filipinos celebrate Fiesta de San Juan Bautista

we avoid lol coming to this place during the fiesta...

Traslacion, Penafrancia of Naga City
