8 OPM Songs to Match this Rainy Day and Monday #Senti Mood
Original Pilipino Music (OPM) knows just
how to strike a chord within you. The best OPM love songs are the
ones that not only reel you in with a catchy tune, but also serve up
the right amount of mush. After all, connecting with cheesy songs is
just inherently imprinted in every Filipino’s DNA code. Listen to
these 8 OPM tracks if (and when) your feel like commiserating with
the rainy days.
Song: Paano Ka Magiging Akin
Senti-epek: Remember your very first love and all the pining that took place? Whether it currently applies to you or not, listening to this track will instantly make you feel like a one of Cupid’s victims—bringing you back just the way you were in high school.
Song: Dalawang Letra
Senti-epek: This playful pop song puts a fun spin on love’s waiting game and all the trappings that come with it.
Song: Pasensya Ka Na
Senti-epek: Sometimes, choosing to stay away from the love of your life is just what’s best for the heart.
Song: How Can I
Senti-epek: You might recognize this soulful beat playing during the steamy love scene of Gerald Anderson and Arci Muñoz in the Pinoy rom-com blockbuster Always Be My Maybe. Well, you know what to do with this one.
Senti-epek: This rendition of the Rivermaya classic has that natural charm to put into a contemplating disposition. It’s easy to go all philosophical with this in the background.
Song: On the Wings of Love (Theme from “On The Wings of Love”)
Senti-epek: Yes, this is as cheesy as can get. But soon as you put this on, you commit fully to the words and belt out with all your heart like no one’s looking.
Song: Isang Araw
Senti-epek: Second chances can toy with your emotions when getting over a past flame. This song helps you deal with regret that comes with it. Nobody said moving on was an easy process.
Sarah Geronimo, Yeng Constantino
Song: Kaibigan Mo
Senti-epek: We all have that one buddy in our life that has our back no matter what. Consider this an anthem to celebrate the solid bond you and your best mate share.
