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!!! 🙂

 

Fiery Friday with Michael Jackson!

knowledge

Whether you call it unfortunate or fortunate, I was born during the pre-internet era…where information came from word-of-mouth, books, encyclopedia, the radio and the television. Those were also the times when you could watch music videos only on TV and most of them were extended and seemed like mini-movies rather than just short music videos featuring the face of the singer plastered all over the whole tv screen. (no offense meant..hehe..)

I had a lot of favorites, mostly from Beatles and a lot of other 80’s artists. The best mini-movie type ones are from Michael Jackson. Definitely no question about how great the music was but watching the videos themselves was exciting and fun! He also apparently really goes “all out” on his videos and spends lavishly so obviously that would translate to what the audience is seeing as well.

In remembrance of the late but still great MJ, today’s Fiery Friday post is dedicated to him and his well-loved music and videos. (oh… and signature dance moves too!)

Medleys to drive the Monday Blues away… ;-)

music

I was listening to one of my favorite radio stations this morning and the DJ played a really cool medley with the latest pop songs and I instantly liked it! The problem was I didn’t get the title (this is what I don’t like about radio..) and so far my Googling has not rewarded me with the information I need.

However, something good still came out of my Googling, I saw two cool medleys and I just have to share it here!
