In Love and War: Dreamdate Lyrics


As a follow-up post to the Higante and Wasak Waltz Lyrics posts, I am featuring another song from the In Love and War Album of Ely Buendia and Francis M. This one reminds me of the old lyrics of eheads that have some sort of double meaning and it usually gets them into trouble especially the conservatives (remember Alapaap and the “drug” issue?). Definitely a cool and fun song here is track 5: Dreamdate Lyrics


Dreamdate
(Ely Buendia and Diane Ventura)

Tuwing kasama ka isa lang ang gustong gawin sa iyo
Alam mo na ito kaya wag ka nang magpakipot jan
Sasama sama ka pero magiinarte ka naman
Please lang wag ka na mambitin

Ngayong katabi ka na
Wag ka nang umangal pa
Binayaran na lahat di ba dapat lang bigay mo na sarili sa akin
Akin ka Wag ka ng pumalag

Ako ang iyong dreamdate

Teka lang
Sandali lang
Wag kang padalos dalos
At ako’y nababastos
Respetuhin mo naman ako
Isa akong tao tulad mo
Pagmamahal ko ay libre
Di ako nabibili

Ely Buendia – Vocals/Piano
Yan Yuzon – Guitars
Dok Sergio – Bass
Wendell Garcia – Drums
Jerome Velasco – Guitars

The song was produced by Ely Buendia and Angee Rozul, and was recorded and mixed by Angee Rozul at Tracks Studio.

In Love and War: Wasak Waltz Lyrics

I am posting the lyrics of one of my favorite tracks from the In Love and War Album by Ely Buendia and Francis Magalona. This is track 8: Wasak Waltz and this song reminds me of the good old eheads days with its pace, melody and familiar lyrics. Goosebumps πŸ™‚

Wasak Waltz

Eto na naman
Panahon ng tag-ulan
Di maiiwasan sa buhay nino man
Tulad mo rin ako
Isang pulo sa dagat
Na walang hanggan
Naghahanap ng masisilungan

Sa dinami-dami ng lugar
Ay dito pa nagkita
Gaano nga ba katagal
Ako’y tumatanda na

Pagkakataong tulad nito
Di dapat pinapalampas
Sabay nating harapin
Ang pag-asa ng bukas

Itaas ang kamay
At iwagayway
Masarap mabuhay
Itaob na ang tagay
Saan ka man pumunta
Meron man o wala
Diyan nagsisimula
Ang wasak na pagsasamahan

Pagkakataong tulad nito
Di dapat pinapalampas
Sa sakit na dinadala
Isa lang ang ating lunas

Itaas ang kamay
At iwagayway
Masarap mabuhay
Itaob na ang tagay
Saan ka man pumunta
Meron man o wala
Diyan nagsisimula
Ang wasak na pagsasamahan

Ely Buendia – Vocals/Keyboard/Percussion/Guitar
Francis M – Vocals
Sancho – Acoustic Guitar
Dok Sergio – Bass
Wendell Garcia – Drums
Jerome Velasco – Guitar
Andi Trinidad – Backing Vocal
Anna Rubio – Backing Vocal

The song was produced by Ely Buendia, Robert Javier and Angee Rozul, and was recorded at Tracks Studio, Pasig City. Wasak Waltz track was recorded, mixed and mastered by Angee Rozul.

I have posted the official Wasak Waltz Full Music Video on my Wasak Waltz Video post.

A Year After: Eraserheads Concert 2009

Today is March 7, 2010, exactly a year after the very successful Eraserheads Concert 2009 event. I remember last year Ely, Raimund Buddy and Marcus gave us, the fans, a fantastic performance. We love you guys!!! Raven and still do not have the CD album for this gig, the last time I’ve checked the CD Store they said its not yet available (that was before Christmas).

Some memorable links related to Eheads

  • Eraserheads Reunion Concert Part 2 on March 7
  • My Eraserheads Concert 2009 Experience
  • After the TV premiere of Eheads Concert 2009 on GMA-7

But I’m happy that I finally got my SuperProxy shirt early this year (I bought one as a Christmas gift for myself).

And speaking of Super Proxy yesterday was also Kiko’s 1 year death anniversary. We miss you Kiko! And as a tribute, I’m reposting this video below:

Update 2009.10.07

Raven and I were inquiring/looking at different music stores for the In Love and War Album, but we were unsuccessful πŸ™ I checked Ely’s twitter page today and he tweeted last Oct.4 about the delay

In Love and War was supposed to come out today but Ondoy had other plans. Expect the album later this month

I will keep this post updated with new developments on the release.

***

IN LOVE AND WAR This will the final title of the project of Ely Buendia and Francis Magalona and it will released on October 5, 2009. Ely Buendia announced this via his twitter account yesterday. Quoting my retwit

RT @elybuendia9000: Francis Magalona/Ely Buendia project final title: IN LOVE AND WAR. Release date: October 5, 2009 8:02 PM Sep 4th

Ely also mentioned it will feature guest performances from Pupil, Hilera and Hardware Syndrome. The project was initially labeled as the Sickos Project, and because of the early passing of the Master Rapper its completion was put on hold. I heard news report that Pia Magalona promised that this album will pushed through and I’m happy that Ely finally announced it.

I’ve been longing for this album after the Eraserheads Concert 2009 so I’m definitely grabbing a copy of this IN LOVE AND WAR album. (Which reminds me I haven’t got my Superproxy t-shirt yet, poor me).

I’ll post here as soon as I have copy πŸ™‚ and maybe a review of it too.

After the TV premiere of Eheads Concert 2009 on GMA-7

I watched the Eraserheads Concert 2009 premiere on GMA-7 last night and realized its not like winning the Philippine Lotto
I’m happy to see the other details of the concert that I missed (the hello kitty guitar, etc.) but it seems GMA-7 did not include some of my favorite songs from the premiere πŸ™

The list of songs not included:

From the 1st set

  • Poorman’s Grave
  • Waiting for the Bus

From the 2nd set (the sofa set)

Well I guess that makes me more excited and still wait for the CD and DVD of the Eraserheads Concert 2009.

Eraserheads Concert 2009 in GMA-7 on April 5

Was watching GMA-7 this evening and was surprised to see that the Eraserheads Concert 2009 “The Final Set” will be shown tomorrow, April 5, 2009 on SNBO (Sunday Night Box Office) at 10:30PM.

Eraserheads Concert 2009

So to those who missed the March 7, 2009 concert at the Mall of Asia, make sure you stay glued to GMA-7 tomorrow night.

For some sneak peek of what to expect, kindly visit my Eraserheads Concert 2009 experience post.

Oh btw… Good luck with the commercials πŸ™‚

My Eraserheads Concert 2009 Experience

March 7, 2009 is really a fun fine time.

Just want to share some highlights of the Eraserheads Concert 2009

eraserheads-concert-2009-smartf

1. Opening song is Magasin. With matching fireworx!
2. From my Concert Day Wish List, the following songs were played:

  • Fine Time
  • Wishing Wells
  • Sembreak (bonus track)
  • SuperProxy (Dedicated to Francis M)
  • Magasin (opening)
  • Ang Huling El Bimbo (Last song)
  • Pare Ko
  • Alkohol
  • Maling Akala
  • Back2me
  • Spolarium
  • Overdrive
  • Poorman’s Grave

13/15 πŸ™‚ We’re so happy. This is like winning the Philippine Lotto

3. Ely’s Magasin spin (“Medyo panget ka pa noon, hanggang ngayon“)

4. Maling Akala outro spin (Konting kuskos, Ayus! referring to a detergent bar ad tagline)

5. Ely distributed the workload (of lead vocals), I think this is a good strategy so that he will not be stressed to much.
6. We love Marcus’ version of Wag mo ng Itanong! This is a winner version! Remind me to find a video and lyrics for this song (Wag mo nang itanong! Di ko rin sasasbihin sa yo (reggae(?))

7. Raymund did some hell of a great performance out there πŸ™‚ (Slo Mo, Alkohol and Insomnya)
8. Fine Time and Wishing Wells. Back to Back! Wow! I have to kiss Raven twice :*
9. Pare Ko lyrics spin (menardconnect might be censored πŸ™‚

10. Kailan’s piano version (Solo Ely)

11. SuperProxy was dedicated to Francis “Kiko” Magalona
12. The band played part of Kaleidoscope World. Another tribute to Kiko
13. Last song is Ang Huling El Bimbo. Nice Fireworks and Confetti!!! I will try if I can post my one and only video shot in youtube
14. Ely poured some lighter fluid on a piano props and lighted it.
Its like some sort of a closure I guess
15. The concert supposedly ended. The people were already leaving the concert grounds and Raven and I were buying some drinks near the exit, but the band members came back on stage. They too were “Bitin”
16. They did “Three for the road” extra songs. Ligaya, Sembreak, and Toyang
17. I’m correct. Mcdonald’s is the exclusive provider of hamburgers in the concert grounds πŸ™‚
18. I guess the band is more relaxed this time compared to the first reunion concert.
17. Whenever the crowd will request for “Group Hug” Ely will retort “Kayo Muna”.
Some pics that I got from my camera (sorry its low res)

The Eraserheads Concert 2009 will be shown on GMA-7 on April 5, 2009. Read this Eraserheads Concert 2009 in GMA-7 on April 5

Concert Day!

We will be going to Mall of Asia in a while. I know March 7 will be a Fine Fine Time, but yesterday’s news was really a sad one. I know the band will pay tribute to Kiko later.

Going back, what songs am I’m wishing and hoping to hear later?

Fine Time, Wishing Wells, Sembreak (repeat), SuperProxy (a tribute I guess), Magasin, Kamasupra (repeat), Ang Huling El Bimbo, Pare Ko, Alkohol, Easy ka lang, Maling Akala, Back2me, Spolarium, Overdrive, Poorman’s Grave.

Hehe, the list may be long already, and I’m not a spoiled brat, when I hear 1 or 2 of my wish list and I will be very (sticker) happy.

Rock en Roll Buong Taon!

Kitakits!

Francis Magalona: 1964-2009

Its all over the net and the blogosphere now I guess. Francis M, the Master Rapper, Kiko, The Man from Manila… already left us. This was announced in noontime show Eat Bulaga today.

Video courtesy of Youtube and cisfran21

Read other details here.

I’m at loss for words to describe my feeling. Tomorrow is Eraserheads Concert 2009 so I should be happy, but with this news… it’s just so sad πŸ™

To give tribute to Francis M, I’m posting this Eraserheads song he revived/collab with Ely (Eraserheads Jam CD Track 9).

(Update 03.07.2009)

I watched EB and saw FrancisM’s last live performance in national TV.

Video Courtesy of Youtube and PinoyBiscuits. Love link to this their blog also

I agree with the song (listen at the rap of FM and EB)! There’s no substitute for the REAL.

SuperProxy 2k6

Sawa ka na ba sa mga hassle sa buhay mo
Ayaw mo na bang mag-isip para sa sarili
Tinatamad ka ng bumyahe
Ang gusto mo’y nakahiga na lang
Napapagod ka na ba sa kayayakap sa asawa mo

(refrain)
Ito ang kailangan mo
I-dial lang ang telepono

(chorus)
Hindi na dapat maghirap
Sa iisang iglap ang buhay ay sasarap
Wag nang mag-atubili kumuha ng
Superproxy

Ako ay kaibigan na lagi mong maasahan
Umulan man o umaraw ay nariyan kapag kailangan
Ito ay special offer sa mga taong katulad mo
Gamitin ang iyong bulsa para guminhawa

(refrain2)
Ako ang kailangan mo
Isaksak na ang modem nyo

(chorus)
Ako ang bahala sa ‘yo
Ang buhay mo ay buhay ko

(chorus)
Superproxy

(rap)
(Francis M)
Come and take a sip from the cup as the drink makes you think
Don’t blink ‘coz you’ll be taken out by the pen and ink
Superproxy, why don’t y’all just talk to me
My rhyme be stickin to ya head like epoxy
This is how it should be done, ‘coz this rhyme is identical to none
3 Stars and a sun in one sky so high, one-nine-nine-five until we die
We on a mission to surf and ride the waves all the way to cyberspace we gonna stay
We on a mission to surf and ride the waves all the way to cyberspace uhh

(Ely B)
And so it was without a fuss we kill the buzz
Surrounding this delusional, irrational thing we call massive entertainment
Time to return the favor kick out the jams with the freeman flavor
Take it from survivor, the search is over
I’ve found the best forget the rest
Erase it, replace it but never duplicate it
‘Coz institutions are boring there’s no substitute for the real thing

(all)
There’s no substitute for the REAL THING
There’s no substitute for the REAL

There’s no substitute for the REAL.

Wala kameng mahahanap na superproxy mo. Rest in peace Kiko! You will always live in our hearts and in our music.

My condolences to Kiko’s family.

Wishing Wells and Magic Spells

4 Days to go!!!

Remember the Enervon tickets I mentioned in my Free Six Eraserheads Concert Info and Tips post. The organizers called me a few minutes ago and confirmed I’ve won a pair of bronze tickets. Nice πŸ™‚

To celebrate let me post one of my favorite eheads song:

Wishing Wells
by Eraserheads

(Chorus)
I wish I could go back to those fairy book tales
Forget the real world a while and seek the seas of the talking whales
A place called wishing wells and magic spells (2x)

Where everything starts out a once upon an time long long ago

And lives happily ever after… a ha ha… yeah yeah

I
I could go up hill and run with Jill
The Giant could smell I’m no Englishman
Cinderella danced with me at the ball
I told the Queen of Hearts about my plan
I travelled the wonderland with Alice
I met with Snow White in the woods
I flew with Peter Pan in Neverneverland
Picked some berries with Miss Red Riding Hood

(Repeat Chorus)

II
I could be an outlaw in the west
Save damsels in distress
You could sleep a hundred years
I will wake you up with a kiss
We’ll swim the seven seas
We can make love more than twice
Fly like dragons in the skies
We could hang around on trees
Buzz around like bees
We can make some honey,

We don’t need no money baby
Just turn your back, You’ll see jumpin’ jellybean sack
Just wait for me Jack I’ll be back, I’ll be back

(Repeat Chorus)

A place called wishing wells and magic spells (3x)

Definitely there will be Magic Spells on March 7, 2009 the day of Eraserheads Concert 2009.

Kitakits! πŸ™‚
