Cheesy Songs that are Secretly Our Guilty Pleasures (OPM Edition)

The cassette tape used to hold our fave music, now it’s simply holds our phones. Cute transition though 😀

Filipino music almost translates to cheesy and boy do we dig it! But the cream of shashal cheesiness is in the 80s and 90s. It is in these years when the best OPM love songs, both Tagalog and English, were composed and had every one singing to it and every one trying to record it on cassette tapes (and get seriously annoyed when the DJ talks before the last  few notes ended). Some of the songs sound almost foreign because the melody and lyrics, perhaps?

I seriously don’t know what ever happened to our OPM. It’s as though they spent too much time and wasted their energy reviving and worse, tagalizing  (pati ba naman Teach Me How to Dougie? Now, there is seriously something wrong here). Remember waiting  for Close Up ads because they have the most kilig ad soundtrack? Oh those days!

So whether you’re feeling giddy or crappy and sappy, go check these tips for that more laslas-pulso, makapagbigti-nga feeling 😀

At this point, I just had to rein myself and stop. This is so addicting! Hope you enjoy the list. 😀
