Bayang Barrios, Cooky Chua feat. The Benjamins | Tinatangi
There are two extremely admirable things about this overly anthemic “Tinatangi” penned by lyric geniuses in Paolo and Miguel Guico. One, it’s a good surprise being an OPM love song we would not really expect to come out at this age when music has already evolved into something millennials defined music as it is, iykwim. And two, it’s a celebratory tune with all the sense of adoration and joy and contentment in the world at its very core.
But what I’m hugely in love with, was how love was defined as that thing we all need – dissecting it in stages parallel to a whole cycle of a day.. pagmulat ng araw, pagyakap ng dapithapon, pagsapit ng dilim.. hanggang sa paghimlay.. but paradoxically transcends the bounds of time. The essential add-ons were the veterans in Cookie Chua, and the legendary Bayang Barrios giving it the required breath to make the song an alive account of how glorious it is to live and love and let things just fall on their right places.
Overall, it’s effortlessly moving in a lot of ways that makes it an enoughly, outright frontrunner for the upcoming #PhilPop2016. And I won’t really be surprised if it pockets the highest honor, come July
