Cebuano music ta bai!

If you’re a foreigner bravely exploring the busy and mini streets of the Philippines, American or not, you’ve probably heard people address you as “Hey Joe!”!

For most Filipinos, it is our simple way of saying hello. (Yes, we’re that friendly!) It might be puzzling for first timers but those who have been here and are staying here for good, this is something worth talking about – it may even be the reason why this group of American singers called their Cebuano-singing group Hey Joe Show!

Let’s get down to the real reason for this post and that’s to show you my latest favorite LSS song My Morena Girl. I’m guessing before the week ends, I should have the lyrics memorized! hehe 🙂

Without further ado, here is My Morena Girl by Hey Joe Show! Enjoy! 🙂

Oh they even got Cebuano covers for other LSS songs, so check them out on YouTube because for sure this video won’t be enough! 🙂 Aren’t they just adorable and cute talking and singing in Cebuano? For sure, they got a lot of morena girls lining up for them now!

This is what I love about songs and music, it knows no race, no boundaries, no language – it’s just that powerful! I can’t thank the music gods enough for such a gift!

 

Izel’s Weekend Jam presents: “How to play the guitar without an actual guitar”

My son loves Red Hot Chili Pepper’s “Otherside” and it was fun to have caught him on camera jamming to the song with his make-believe guitar and his solid rockin’ moves!

Do check out his big finish! 🙂

I guess the love for music does run in the family…enjoy!

 

 

Feel Good LSS Reggae Friday! :)

Ok, so I started my Friday a bit groggy because of lack of sleep but when I heard this song (for the first time today as I’ve not been listening to the radio for a while), me and my son automatically danced to the rhythm and I’m an instant fan! I got all pumped and had to search for it…

Played it over and over and over and over again (ok talk about obsessive… haha), shared it on my social media accounts, shared it to my co-workers and friends and am blogging about it! Sorry but it was too good of a song to pass up FOR A FRIDAY!

So, maybe it’s just the crazy me but this song is seriously my ANYDAY FRIDAY ANTHEM!

So here it is and dance with me this Friday!!! 🙂

 

Music Therapy: songs to make you happy

The United Nations is apparently compiling a list of songs that make people happy….

As part of my contribution to their project, I am reblogging this with hashtag #HappySoundsLike. Hope my bets make it to the list! 🙂

I apologize, I have not updated this blog in a while but that doesn’t mean I have not listened to any music (as I always do and it is an addiction I do not want and cannot ever withdraw from) nor have I stopped singing or learning any songs.

There is one song that is really keeping me inspired right now that listening to it makes me want to dance. (want to dance if in public but really dance when I’m with my son who seems to like it as much as I do…)

Anyway, without further ado.. here is the Happy song by Pharrell Williams.

If you had seen the movie Despicable Me 2, you would also hear this music when Gru realized he had feelings for his partner and was dancing along the way to meeting her.

 

Also, here is another song that makes you happy…

Thank God for Music! (my very own quote) ;-)

Music is a free and natural God-given

So, what’s your choice of drug for today?

Mine was Lady Antebellum, Lenka and Evanescence this morning.

And now, I think I am off to some Eagles this afternoon. 🙂

Cheers to the natural high!!!
