“Hindi ako hihinto. Ikaw ang iniibig ko.”

“Boy (I Love You)” by Cherie Gil | Ah, the songs you stumble upon when the power goes out. Happened yesterday, and the outage went longer than anybody wanted, so out went one of those wind-up radios, where we fiddled with the dial looking for something to listen to. It was flimsy, so what was originally a morning spent with DWWW-AM became a morning spent with DWKC-FM (well, they’re sister stations) and to my mother absolutely enjoying the latter’s music mix. (It was a Sunday, so out went the dusty Filipino classics.) Cherie Gil – the actress, yes, – apparently released this as a single before she became a prominent actress, although a quick sidebar surf led me to the original version of this song by the NailClippers, a group of Filipino children who released this song in Japan. Well, that was quite obscure. The things the 1970s brings someone born way after it. [NB]
