Question about local pop artists and cover songs...
« on: January 11, 2006, 02:05:11 PM »
why is it when local pop artists play concerts to promote their new album or whatever they always seem to suddenly forgot about their own songs and their concerts suddenly becomes filled with cover songs by foreign artists? i mean, what happened to their own songs? i think this is embarrassing! i know filipinos love karaoke and [gooey brown stuff] but daaamn... when you're playing a concert in front of thousands of people, play your own music, man.

thoughts?

Di na maalis yang revival trend. It just so happens that rumatsada sa 2005 ang MYMP sa revivals. Magaling ang MYMP sana.

Iba kasi talaga ang level ng old songs eh. Are their any songs from today that could be as big of a household name such as songs from the Beatles, Bread, Air Supply, etc. ?

Putting a new song in the market is such a risk, the record companies would rather put in something that is "tried and true", and riding on the fact that Filipinos are gullible and faddish. Can't lose with that formula!

cover trend sucks

damn the cover trend really sucks..... :evil:  :evil:  :evil:

mymp tops the list, then nina, paolo santos, blah... all those senti "OPM" kuno - genre acts na piniling magcover ng mga old song ng walang sawa para instant sikat.... wala na kapagod2...anu ba yan! also, here comes the band/group tribute album electromagneticjam, ung covers ng various bands covering eraserheads stuff.... sana di na rin maging trend ito....

grabe ang local bands mag cover ng songs, na halos isa hanggang tatlo lang ang orig sa setlist nila, di tulad compared to foreign bands, they cover only a few songs, depending on their genre, and most of the time, they change the song to fit their sound....

OPM is original philippine music, ryt? they must stop covering songs and play their originals.... parang mga banda na 2mutugtog sa mga resto/bar doing covers pag nakikita/naririnig sa tv! kainis!!!

sadly speaking, kahit puro covers at covers halos lahat ang mga kanta nila, patok parin cla sa masang pinoy.....waaaaaaaaaahhhhh....... :cry:  :cry:

totoo yan. it all comes down to money parin. kung tutuusin andaming magagaling na local composers satin. sa forum palang dito andami na.  :D

Takot lang talaga siguro magtake ng risk ang mga major labels satin.

in fairness, na-a-appreciate ko naman yung ibang mga revival songs kaso minsan sobra na talaga. :?

yung tropahang "acoustic" nung 2002 onwards ang mga nuno ng cover cover na yan, lalo na yung Paolo Santos na yun ang daming sinirang kanta.. "DAS DA MOONLIGHT SHINE ON PARIS" haha.. (dis)honorable mention: Nina at Sarah Geronimo!

give the local composers a chance! tuloy, si Lito Camo lang ang kumikita ng malaki haha :)

Yeah, like SEXBOMB Orig Pop Music? (Is it even ORIG? I wouldn't know haha) - But still, NO THANKS. One sad thing about Artists is that they give into commercials, which you know ... isn't something I think a band should do even for popularity >_> Since it's lame.

it's not about the popularity, but the money. if you're a musician in the philippines - a rock band, for that matter - it's hard to earn a living based on gigs alone.

I got a question about covers..
If a local artist puts a cover song on one of their albums, they have to ask permision first right?
they prob have to have a contract with the original artist first before they release the album right?

it's really sad to think how big record companies would rather come up with remakes and 'sexbomb' types of songs. but they too are just running businesses. they also need to make money, and those materials guarantee the results they want, at least as far as they're concerned.

can't really question the fact that it sells...

don't get me wrong guys. i also come from a group that makes all-original albums. but the reality is, remake albums sell better, at least in general.

according to guys from record companies, it's cheaper and easier for them to do remakes. songwriters are also giving them a hard time. again, that's according to them.

tama, doon nga lumalabas ang galing sa mga orihinal na materyal. kaya nga hanga talaga ako sa karamihan ng mga musiko noon e.

we have a music industry that also needs to survive. the record labels are doing what they are doing because they too need to survive.
