o db, gaya ni ms gretchen b, nadinig na ba natin sya nagbanda or naging vocalist sa isang banda? hinde.  ayon sa circle, sold-out na daw ang CDs nya. :-)

ok lang yan.khit paano may sumusuporta pa rin sa industriya natin. :-)


Pati yung mga CD ni Kris Aquino naging Platinum na yata, at take note hindi siya kumanta ni isang nota sa CD na yun. Nag-compile lang ng collection ng mga love songs at nilagay sa CD, tapos pinaskilan lang ng mukha niya yung cover...ayun, sold out! GOD, I LOVE THE LOCAL RECORDING INDUSTRY!!!!

ano ba nauna?

yun gigs nila na puro cover o yun producer nilang nagproduce sa album? hehehe

eh bakit lahat ba ng hawak ng producer ng banda eh nabubuhay sa singles na puro cover songs? hehehehe hehehehe

kumbaga Ser eh...

nauna ba kape barako sa tindahan ng kape o sa klase ng halaman hehehe hehehe hehehe  ititimpla ba natin ng madaming gatas ang kape barako tulad ng mga nescafe at blend 45 kun ang kape ay kape barako? hehehe hehehe hehehe hehehe


tama naman sabi mo ser,... ang sinasabi ko  e kaya may mga bandang gumagawa ng mga remake o revivals e dahil yon ay  gusto ng mga producers nila for marketing purposes o kya ay gusto ng label nila na iremake nila yung song.

wla ako argument sa style at tunog ng banda kahit pa noong panahon ng mga dinosaurs ay yon na ang tugtugan nila.

marami tyong banda sa ngayon na ang sumusulat ng songs ay mismong mga managers at producer  pa nila.


kung halimbawa nagkaron ka at nag-sign up ka sa isang recording company or label at pinakanta ka ng april boy ,,kakantahin mo ba?

yung iba jan ay wlang choice ser,,pumirma sila ng kontrata. :-D

the only reason "it sells" is coz its the only thing rammed down people's throats so much that people have no choice but to like 'em... not just covers but backwards pop music in general.

if all the labels took risks and tried to elevate the minds of the masses, we could end up like japan or someday, the US, where diversity and open-mindedness cultivated markets for all kinds of art and music.

but no, the labels can't risk that. its still a business and they have families to feed. reality check for the idealistic.

Di rin siguro natin sila masisisi.  :-)

Talaga namang magaganda ang mga lumang kanta.  :-)

totoo nga't mas magaganda ang mga kanta dati, IMHO, may it be from my parents' time or from my high school and college days. 

but that's why we've been stuck on revival mode ever since the mid-'90s.  because we pinoys are a nostalgic and romantic people, though kadalasan ay over naman sa pagiging nostalgic/romantic...

Pinoy's cant think for themselves.

a bit uncalled for coming from a fellow noypi (same with 99% or so of PM), medyo generalization nga yung pinost mo, IMHO.  but kudos for calling things as you see 'em. 

a better way of putting it would be that we pinoys need to be more proactive as music lovers and/or musicians - show more initiative to create your own rather than tap the audience's nostalgic nerve by doing yet another revival.

It's better to light a candle than curse the darkness, as the old saying goes.

Naysaying benefits no one.

We all know MYMP kinda, well... sucks. And most of us can do a better job. So let's all just do a better job.

Hindi lang dito sa Pilipinas may crappy songs/albums na nabebenta :) Hindi lang dito sa Pilipinas merong nagsasamantala sa hype/uso. Hindi lang dito sa Pilipinas may nagre-revive (or tribute).

Ang talagang nakaiinis ay yung 'Only in the Philippines' attitude ng marami kapag may pangit na bagay na nakita/narinig/nabasa tungkol sa Pilipinas :) Wala tayong monopoly ng tinatawag ng ilan greedy producers at easily swayed masses.

------

I remember noong 90's nang naging masigla ang band scene. Andaming naging alternative/{insert genre here} artist. Yun ang mga naging mainstream. Maraming mga 'magagaling' ang lalong 'lumalim' ang taste just to differentiate themselves from the masses. Inakusahang baduy at sell-out ang mga sumikat na dating nasa 'underground'.

Minsan ko na ring inisip na walang choice ang masa kaya sumisikat ang tinawag ng ilan na baduy. Ngunit may pagpipilian ang masa, hindi lang minsan o makalawa na may mga artist na naglabas ng 'intellectual' na album. Ngunit mas gusto ng masa ang tinatawag na baduy ng ilan.

Bakit nga ba? Hindi kaya nakasasawa rin ang preachy/whiny style ng topics ng 'intellectual' artists? Hindi kaya ang purpose ng masa ay mag-enjoy at tumawa kaysa maging politically correct at intellectual? Sinubukan ng Eraserheads na iahon ang masa :)

pinilit kong iahon ka
ngunit ayaw mo namang sumama


Hindi [chewbacca] ang masa. Sa dami ng mga iniisip at problema, wala na sigurong panahon para sa malalim/makabuluhan/orihinal na kanta.

------

And if we think that our preferences/music is better than what the masses/jologs/squatters enjoy, then show it! Why not organize free concerts/gigs for the masses and show 'em what you think is better :)

Peace!

i heard MYMP's newest single, Now. ok naman, catchy. for sure magiging hit to sa masa. though i dont dig revivals too much. for me it should be an original song should always be what you must write. personality/identity yun ng artist eh.
