“Iisa lang ang iyong mundo.”

“Sala” by Pupil | It’s a shame the official upload for this music video is a low quality one. I understand the music video is supposed to look cheap, but not like this! But I digress. I’m posting about Pupil’s “Sala” – the lead single from their 2007 album Wildlife – not because of anything in particular. I just remembered this song from out of the blue last week, while scheduling a bunch of blog entries in anticipation for busy weeks ahead. My head automatically went to the final third of the song, when the choruses begin to clash into a maelstrom of upbeat catharsis. And then Ely Buendia goes, “kung ano man ang matagpuan ay ‘di ko na alam.” That, for some reason, hit me hard when this song was on high rotation on the then local-friendly radio stations when I was in college, and it still hits me that way eleven years later. Pavlovian response, perhaps? [NB]
