Here goes the Music Videos of both LIPPS INC. and PSEUDO ECHO:
FUNKY TOWN- Lipps Inc.
FUNKY TOWN- Pseudo Echo
Well KABAYAN, that's not all I got for you on this blogpost!! We have our very own Vincent Quilit aka. "VINCENT DAFALONG"!! YUP! It's VINCENT DAFALONG's version of "FUNKY TOWN" and this time with a PINOY Flavor entitled "MAHIWAGANG NUNAL" or better known only as "NUNAL" in English "MOLE". YUP!! You got it right PINOY WAVERS, PUNKS, and HARDCORE!! Actually, this song was considred to be one of the Pioneers of PINOY HIP HOP/RAP/RNB and was very famous back in the 80s. It was released around 1983 and it was really all over the radio and television and now it's considered to be a classic. Hmmmp!! Talking about exposure and promotion!! I wonder when will we see a REMASTERED CD of VINCENT DAFALONG's album or even "The Best Of VINCENT DAFALONG". Hmmmmp!! KABAYAN, if you know people from the P.A.R.I. or any Philippine Record Company maybe you could recommend the release. He He He!! I think VINCENT's songs are worth listening to again especially for the new generation. I can still remember him promoting the song on STUDENT CANTEEN and EAT BULAGA sporting a long hair and wearing shades and black shiny leather jacket. WHEEW!! MEMORIES INDEED!! One of the first PINOY RAP second only to GEORGE JAVIER's "Na Onseng Delight" which was copied from Sugarhill Gang's "Rappers Delight".
I just experimented on this file site and have uploaded the song "NUNAL" for you to listen to. ENJOY!!
"NUNAL"- Vincent Dafalong
The lyrics basically talks about all sorts of MOLES wherein PINOY usually associate the different location of MOLES on the body for a different character or attitude of the person.
So for our listening pleasure and since I have free time lately, I included MY VERY OWN BULLET PRESENTATION of the different sites of moles described by VINCENT DAFALONG. Of course, in PILIPINO okay!! FIRST TIME IN THE WEB!! Well, It's just like making POWERPOINT SLIDES for my students!! Ha Ha Ha!! YUP!! It's "The Dr. Stirring Rhod Way" again folks!!

It has been 23 years since that historical revolution and a lot of PINOY are still wondering what happened. WHAT NOW? Naaah!! I guess my KABAYAN knows the answer on this one so I don't have to elaborate on it okay. I'm here to feature this Album by VIRNA LISA which was originally released few months after that very PEACEFUL REVOLUTION and was remastered on CD by IVORY RECORDS in 1999. Well, I bought my own original copy of the CD so you will ask "Why did I buy It?"......my answer "Why Not?" He He He!!
The album entitled "MAGKAISA(The EDSA REVOLUTION A Tribute To The Filipino People)" has a total of 8 songs all sung by VIRNA LISA. The MAJOR HIT was the song "MAGKAISA" which was composed by TITO SOTTO of the fame PINOY comedy trio "TITO, VIC AND JOEY" who also became a SENATOR. Special THANKS were also given to TONY TUVIERA and VIC SOTTO for their assistance in the arrangement of the song "MAGKAISA". The album producer was TITO SOTTO and the arranger was HOMER FLORES. This was recorded at TASHA RECORDING STUDIO. I guess that's enough INFO for you guys regarding the album. So where's VIRNA LISA right now? Hmmmp!! I have no idea guys.

3) AT KUNG SAKALI
4) MAHAL KITA, WALANG IBA
5) MAY BUKAS PA
6) NANGANGAMBA, NANANABIK
8) MAGKAISA (Instrumental)
Since I haven't seen a copy of the CD for download in the web, I decided to upload and share the MUSIC FILES for you guys. KABAYAN, if you're just interested to have a copy then here it goes:
This album is not NEW WAVE, POST PUNK, PUNK ROCK, or HARDCORE but definitely PINOY NEW WAVERS, PUNKS , and HARDCORES would remember these songs.
Ngayon ganap ang hirap sa mundo
Here's a Music Video of MAGKAISA courtesy of jsoria30ver2. Remembering the good old days when PEACE and UNITY made a mark here in the PHILIPPINES and AROUND THE WORLD.
Unawa ang kailangan ng tao
Ang pagmamahal sa kapwa"y ilaan
Isa lang ang ugat ng ating pinagmulan
Tayong lahat ay magkalahi
Sa unos at agos ay huwag padadala
Panahon na (may pagasa kang matatanaw)
Ng pagkakaisa (bagong umaga, bagong araw)
Kahit ito (sa atin Siya"y nagmamahal)
Ay hirap at dusa
Magkaisa (may pagasa kang matatanaw)
At magsama (bagong umaga, bagong araw)
Kapit kamay (sa atin Siya"y nagmamahal)
Sa bagong pagasa
Ngayon may pag-asang natatanaw
May bagong araw, bagong umaga
Pagmamahal sa Diyos, isipin mo tuwina
I included here in my blogpost a Music Video of the song "Handog Ng Pilipino Sa Mundo" courtesy of pilipinasmabuhay100. Although this song was not included on the album, I find it very relevant since this blogpost is about the 1986 EDSA revolution then It is proper to include this song because It was also a song which was composed that time and to be exact April 1986 by none other than JIM PAREDES of the famous singing trio "APO HIKING SOCIETY" and was very popular for Filipinos back then. YUP!! JIM, DANNY, and BUBOY of APO were very active back then in the political scene.Filipino Artists featured on the song were Apo Hiking Society, Celeste Legaspi, Coritha & Eric, Edru Abraham, Gretchen Barretto, Ivy Violan, Inang Laya, Joseph Olfindo, Kuh Ledesma, Leah Navarro, Lester Demetillo, Noel Trinidad, Subas Herrero. Hmmmp!! It's like a "WE ARE THE WORLD" Thing PINOY Version with a cause I may say. It is consider nowadays as one of the most known Filipino Patriotic Songs of all time.
HANDOG NG PILIPINO SA MUNDO
Handog Ng Pilipino Sa Mundo
Words and Music by Jim Paredes
‘Di na ‘ko papayag mawala ka muli.
'Di na ‘ko papayag na muli mabawi,
Ating kalayaan kay tagal natin mithi.
‘Di na papayagang mabawi muli.
Magkakapit-bisig libo-libong tao.
Kay sarap palang maging Pilipino.
Sama-sama iisa ang adhikain.
Kelan man ‘di na paalipin.
Handog ng Pilipino sa mundo,
Mapayapang paraang pagbabago.
Katotohanan, kalayaan, katarungan
Ay kayang makamit na walang dahas.
Basta’t magkaisa tayong lahat.
Masdan ang nagaganap sa aming bayan.
Nagkasama ng mahirap at mayaman.
Kapit-bisig madre, pari, at sundalo.
Naging Langit itong bahagi ng mundo.
Huwag muling payagang umiral ang dilim.
Tinig ng bawat tao’y bigyan ng pansin.
Magkakapatid lahat sa Panginoon.
Ito’y lagi nating tatandaan.
JUST REMEMBERING THE GOOD OL' DAYS!!
Kabayan!! Tayo Ay

WAR OF THE INDIES is another Philippine New Wave Compilation that showcased 14 songs from 14 different NEW WAVE Bands that are popular here in MANILA and had heavy rotations on XB, BM, and NU back in the 80s. It's a combination of Remixes and Original versions that is worth listening to. I guess this means "WAR", if you talk about the great music in this superb compilation. I was able to borrow an original copy of this back in 2000 but I wasn't able to have my own copy because during those times CD burning was not yet common. THANKS to both KABAYAN djrhom and slave2nuwave for sharing their original copies here in my little blog. I reuploaded the music files djrhom gave me and arranged it chronologically and editted it. Unfortunately djrhom already lost his Front CD cover but we are still lucky that slave2nuwave still have the front and back CD covers intact and the CD photo that I'll be using is his original copy. As usual, the art of the cover is fascinating as if you are going back to the "French Revolution" of the early 19th century which was headed by the great "Napoleon Bonaparte". Hmmmp!! Isn't that the term NEW WAVE has It's cultural origins of French-filmmaking in the late 1950s? I think there goes the inspiration....or the perspiration. He He He!! Are they barbarians in the cover? It would be devastating if it's WORLD WAR I and WORLD WAR II!! So here it goes!! WAR OF THE INDIES!!
WAR OF THE INDIES
RENO'S HAT LOGO
EAT BULAGA Photo Archives (Circa 80s)
(Going 30 years this JULY 30,2009)
The music of the compilation was pretty good and the most common song being performed on the contest was the classic hit "LIES" by THOMPSON TWINS. YUP!! Majority of them danced to this tune which probably was the reason that the song was a massive hit here in MANILA back then. "LIES" was also the song that broke THOMPSON TWINS into both UK Singles Chart and the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 back in 1983. This song was from their third album Quick Step and Side Kick simply called Side Kicks in the U.S. HmmmP!! LIES? Well, sad to say a very common thing in the recent political arena here in the Philippines. Haaaaay!! KABAYAN, Let's just sing to these people "Lies lies lies yeah (they're gonna get you), Lies lies lies yeah (they won't forget you)." Naaah!! Some things never change. There were two other songs that were used by the contestants and these were "DON'T GO" by YAZOO and " "JUST CAN'T GET ENOUGH" by DEPECHE MODE. Both songs also had their share of airplays on MANILA radio. I also remember this YAZOO song being played on the classic 80s movie of Sylvester Stallone entitled "Over The Top" which I watched on Betamax back then. Why RENO'S MODERN DANCE? Well, during those times there was this RENO'S Jeans which I bought once and It has the same "HAT LOGO" of the said PHILIPPINE NEW WAVE Compilation released by OCTOARTS INTERNATIONAL INC. under NEW YORK RECORDS back in 1983 so I guess It's about that jeans. I also noticed that most of those who performed were wearing hat and jeans. Hmmmp!! I guess that's it!! So nothing to do with a brand of Liver Spread very popular here in MANILA. He He He!! MEMORIES INDEED!!
My RENO'S MODERN DANCE Vinyl Records
Volumes One And Two
So instead of posting the Tracklist of both compilations I will just mention the 11 NEW WAVE BANDS that were included.
The band list are as follows:
A FLOCK OF SEAGULLS
Some of the bands have two or more songs included on both compilations. Volume One has 12 songs in it and Volume Two on the otherhand has only 10 songs. This was compiled and coordinated by STEVE BEAVER and graphic design by ILLUSTRATION WORKSHOP. Only Volume One was featured on the contest because Volume Two was released few weeks after the dance contest was finished and I guess this was because of the success of the first one. The song "LIES" are present on both volumes. The Single Version on Volume One and the Extended Version was on Volume Two. GREAT COMPILATION INDEED!!
I included Four MUSIC VIDEOS on this blogpost to recapture the times.
LIES (EXTENDED VERSION)
Just Can't Get Enough- Depeche Mode
This DEPECHE MODE song remains to be a PARTY CLASSIC for PINOY NEW WAVERS up to now, they "Just Can't Get Enough" dancing with the tune.
Well, I hope you enjoyed my blogpost as much as I did while conceptualizing and posting it. THANKS AGAIN!!
LIES LIES LIES yeah
(They're gonna get you)!!

NEW WAVE.... What is it? Well, essentially It's POST-PUNK ERA Music(starting circa 1979), that journalists, record label A&R people, disc jockeys, and assorted music-biz folk didn't want to call PUNK ROCK. Despite PUNK's grassroots success, to describe "PUNK" still doomed it commercially. Why? Mainly because PUNK ROCK was relegated outsider status; music that was considered too harsh, radical, and alienating to speak to larger, more traditional rock and pop audiences. Hence, the term "NEW WAVE" (whose cultural origins go back to it's use as description of Avant-Garde French-filmmaking in the late 50s) was substituted to indicate bands that were progressive, different, but not necessarily threatening, nor devoid of commercial potential. A YIN/YANG concept in the truest sense, NEW WAVE yielded many fine bands and great records. Many of which are included in this Ultimate New Wave mp3 collection.
That's the entire content that was written on the mp3 collection's Back Cover. Hmmmp!! I find it very interesting. The compilation includes 75 great extended, remix versions of the songs from the NEW WAVE ERA that was very popular here in MANILA. Bands like DEAD OR ALIVE, INFORMATION SOCIEY, HUMAN LEAGUE, SOFT CELL, REAL LIFE, and a lot more that could let you dance all day and all of the night. He He He!! All remixes here guys and no album or single version included so definitely once you start listening to it you just can't stop dancing. Uploading the entire 75 songs? Naaah!! I'm very sorry because that's too heavy for a file and no time for me to do such a toxic thing. Let's leave it to other Blogs that specialized on it. How about the Tracklisting? Hmmmp!! Let's see what CAPTAIN HOOK will do about it, if you got my drift. He He He!!
There are lots of NEW ORDER, DEPECHE MODE, ERASURE, and TEARS FOR FEARS stuffs here for those who loves these bands.
So Let's Dance To The
NEW WAVE DANCE!!

I first heard DEPECHE MODE's song entitled "It's Called A Heart" back in 1985 on POWER105 DZBM-FM. The music video of the song was also all over MANILA's Music Videos Television shows. "It's Called A Heart" was the 14th single of the band which was not released on an actual studio album but was released on the compilation "DEPECHE MODE The Singles (81-85)" which I also bought immediately when it was released here in MANILA back in 1985. I bought my VINYL copy at SM CUBAO and this DEPECHE MODE compilation is a must for PINOY WAVERS because It contains a lot of great hits from the band which were played both on WXB102 and POWER105 DZBM-FM. SULIT TALAGA!! XB and BM explored a lot of DEPECHE MODE songs during both stations heydays on MANILA airwaves from the common down to their rare, extended remixes, live, and obscure songs. MARTIN GORE was also noted to have stated that "It's Called A Heart" is his least favorite Depeche Mode single. ALLAN WILDER considered it to be one of Depeche Mode's weakest songs.
It's Called A HEART's DAY!!

This blogpost was requested by KABAYAN Jordan Victor Luciano aka."lunatic jordan" as HARRY NOLAN would call him and greet him on air. Lunatic? A "Looney"? A Looney Tunes character too? He He He!! Actually, Jordan(not Michael ok) is a freelance DJ and have been part of some other mobiles. He's also a part of this upcoming PRE-VALENTINES Party as DJ Jordan Luciano which is entitled "FRIDAY I'M IN LOVE with THE TAZMANIAN DEVIL" on February 13, 2009 at ROUTE 168 SPORTS AND DINER NO. 41 VISAYAS AVENUE, BARANGAY VASRA, QUEZON CITY...Together with Legendary POWER 105.1 DEEJAYS.... CHELE D, RANDY BROWN, SMILIN HARRY NOLAN, PAUL HUNTER, BOB KING!!! WITH SPECIAL GUEST DJs!... ERIC PASCUAL AND MIKE TIMBOL OF 33-1/3, RAMSEY GUZMAN OF RSL AND DJ DINDO LOPEZ OF CARDINAL AUDIO (Snoog!!! is that you? OoooopS!! Just having the same name.) , and with EXILE MOBILE. Hmmmp!! Star studded line-up guys!!
So who's the star of the party?..........It's "THE TAZMANIAN DEVIL"!!! YUP!! Ronnie Tengsico aka. "THE TAZMANIAN DEVIL" or "TAZ" became the sidekick of HARRY NOLAN back in 1987 as what I've written before. According to "lunatic jordan" It was Harry who gave the name "The Tazmanian Devil" to Sir Ronnie because during those times TAZ sported a long hairdo with a great smile. Hmmmp!! Both Harry and Taz met on 99.5RT just before going to DZBM POWER105. The Tazmanian Devil will be having a Pre-Valentines Party this FRIDAY THE 13th organized by ART OF SOUND and the POWER SWITCHERS. Nope!! It's not JASON. It's the DEVIL. He He He!!Definitely, "FRIDAY I'M IN LOVE" would be the right theme for this Party since It's going to be held on a Friday and I suppose they are all IN LOOOOVE. YUP!! The title was taken from one of my favorite songs from "THE CURE"!! Btw, lunatic jordan informed me that Taz is now working at Santa Ana Park as Race Analyst. Well, I guess the whirlwind tornado is "In The Running". I only met him once when we visited BM back in 1988. NICE GUY!!
I first heard of "FRIDAY I'M IN LOVE" on NU107 back in 1992 and saw the Video few days after at Channel 2's VIDEO HOT TRACKS and I fell IN LOVE with it. WOW!! GREAT VIDEO!! "New Wave na New Wave Talaga!!" It was taken from THE CURE's "WISH" album and was nominated for a Grammy Award and won the BEST MUSIC VIDEO from MTV. That's why the video was great. Hmmmp!! The single became #1 in U.S. MODERN ROCK CHARTS which definitely made it one of the most popular songs from THE CURE. In the Lyrics "I don't care if Monday's blue" refers to New Order's Classic Dance hit "Blue Monday". So how about Tues, Wed, Thurs, Sat, and Sun? Naaaah!! I DON'T CARE if Monday's Blue. He He He!!
Here's a photo of the real marsupial "Tasmanian Devil"
Here's Two Different Live Performances Of "FRIDAY I'M IN LOVE" by "THE CURE" courtesy of "cure msg" and "hangin72back". THANKS GUYS!!
HEY WAIT!!!! There's an interesting version of it in YOU-TUBE sang by Kokosingers on Kenyon College Family Weekend 2007 uploaded by mjanie314.

So let me greet you guys a:
Happy ValenTAZ Day!!

I was able to talk to POGZ, one of the host of the show and currently the Lead Vocalist of PINOY SMITHS Tribute Band "DEAD POP STARS", personally last weekend and he was glad to hand me down this great news. I guess It's ripe for the scene right now to have this kind of Radio Show here in MANILA. According to POGZ, this was FOUR years in the making and finally the finishing touches was laid down last week. Hmmmp!! What's this about the number FOUR? He He He!! So what do we expect here POGZ? This is what he has to say "We'll be playing the dumbest to the best NEW WAVE TUNE, (He! He!)...and again We're not Deep". Oh ayan POGZ exact message mo yan ah. Well, definitely one good reason to be happy about. Sir George Frederick was POGZ personal choice when handed down the authority to choose the people to host the show so that for him there would be "Authenticity Of PINOY Style Of NEW WAVE". That's a great choice I may say!! HATS OFF with this one!! Definitely, looking at the Poster Ad and the title of this show, you would not think of otherwise that It's really a NEW WAVE SHOW. The poster was taken from THE THE's "SOUL MINING" album and the show title"LISTEN ON" is a great track from THE RAILWAY CHILDREN and THE BALLAD OF THE TIMES from EVERYTHING BUT THE GIRL which was the last song played on WXB102 by another Legendary XB DJ ALLAN K.(not related with the pinoy comedian Allan K. of Eat Bulaga) back in 1987 before it finally signed-off.
Here's my DIY photo of SIR GEORGE FREDERICK and POGZ:
So we've been talking about POGZ and Sir George Frederick so who are the two other guys in the show? POGZ informed me that CHARLIE is from the U.K. and a pure BRIT and so I guess this would infuse some inputs on the British side of the story. FRED on the otherhand plays in the band. FRED sounds like ROBERT SMITH and plays like BILLY BRAGG.Hmmmp!! Very interesting Line-up I may say!! And so there you go guys the FOUR gentlemen that would be dishing out something great this February 11,2009 on NU107. That's FRED, POGZ, GEORGE, and CHARLIE!! It's THE BALLAD OF JOHN AND YOKO? Nope!! It's "THE BALLAD OF THE TIMES".
Here's some lines from the LYRICS of WE'RE NOT DEEP
"You'd do yourself a favour if you gave yourself a break
But that's one risk you'd never take
The evenings yours, the mornings mine
But don't knock me, I'm doing fine
You'd do yourself a favour if you gave yourself a rest
But just for now you know what's best
And I know what you think
What you think about me
Thoughts like that sink home
To you we're not deep"
Listen On everyone!!
To The Ballad Of The Times!!

There was also this Informative Portion of REQUEST ROUND-UP entitled "NEWS WAVE" wherein Morning Man delivers the latest NEWS and INFOS about NEW WAVE. I made a special blogpost about NEWS WAVE back in DECEMBER 2007 wherein I also featured the Newsletter with same name . Hmmmp!! I can't imagine It's already 2009. Well, he was also glad that I helped him remember this portion of his.
Click the NEWS WAVE cover shared by ALDRIN of HARMONIC TREND to enter my NEWS WAVE Blogpost:
So how did Morning Man became an XB Jock? This is what he answered: "George Frederick and our Station Manager Jesse Gonzales were the cause of it all! Poor me getting sucked into one of the wildest musical rides of my life ...loving it, living it and, after more than a decade and a half, still obsessed by it."
I also informed him that I still remembered that one caller on the show asked him wayback 1987 why WXB102 was called "The Station That Dares To Be Different" and I really like his answer on air which goes like this "We are called The Station That Dares To Be Different because 99% of what you hear on our station, you can't hear on other stations, and 102% of the songs other stations play you can't hear it from us". Hmmmp!! This hit the mark because I was able to tape this too. He He He!!
Inggo had a stint on RK96 better known as 96.3WROCK(LiteRock) in the early 80s together with another Legendary NEW WAVE DJ "THE UNBEATABLE". Of course, PINOY WAVERS would recall "THE UNBEATABLE" because of the hit NEW WAVE radio program back in the 90s on 89DMZ entitled "WAVE 180". Morning Man was a former DJ of Stargazer in Silahis International Hotel and then Soundtrack in Ambassador Hotel during that period when PUNK ROCK and NEW WAVE started to hit the dance scene here in MANILA. . There was also a story that he shared to me regarding Ambassador Hotel at one time the XB phone conked out one-way wherein they could call but they couldn't receive calls. What they did was they routed the Requests & Greetings for Request Round-Up via Ambassador Hotel so that the listeners could call there. They then called up the telephone operator of Ambassador Hotel every 15 minutes and she read out to them what she had gotten. Well, according to the lady operator, it was a quiet morning for her as always until Inggo announced Ambassador Hotel's trunkline (she was tuned in). After that announcement , everything in her switchboard lit up and this went on till afternoon and that was long after the morning show. Wheew!! They never did that again. He He He!! Nice Improvising Sir!! Talking about FANS!! Well, I guess Morning Man's Show would definitely be the highest rated XB Radio Show back then. I also remembered that the Schedule was on Week Days MON-FRI 6am-9am, then few months after It's success, the show was extended to Saturdays.
Here's a photo of MORNING MAN with two Legendary XB DJs namely "THE GHOST" and "SIR GEORGE FREDERICK". "TRES LOS PANCHOS"?
What made WXB102 so unique for MORNING MAN? The music was definitely a prime factor. The line-up of jocks was another consideration for him. What with the likes of Cool Carla, George Frederick, The Ghost, Fat Albert, Julius Ceasar and everyone else around. He feel blessed to have worked with them and being "Underground" also created an ambience like no other for WXB102.
Here's an old WXB102 sticker:
Here's a VINTAGE Photo of WXB102 Booth Circa 80s!!
Btw. I also made a Special blogpost of the recent WXB102 BOOTH Circa '08 back in MARCH, 2008 which MIKE SUTTON requested. MIKEY emailed me a photo of the XB Booth Circa 2008.
Click the XB Booth '08 photo to read my blospost on it:
So how's MORNING MAN doing right now? He his still a jock and still Morning Man on WXB102 Internet Radio. He now work for 107.1 SMOOTH FM, a Jazz Station in Baguio City. Hmmmp!! Interesting SIR!! His program is called "Jazzy Sunrise" and it's on 6-10am and goes by the name "Señor Blues" and not “Senior” blues okay. Sir Inggo, Is that something to do with a REQUEST ROUND-UP Favorite from LAIDBACK"Sunshine Reggae"? He He He!!
I made my own DIY "Then and Now" Photo Of MORNING MAN:
Morning Man on the XB BOOTH Circa 1987 and Circa 2007!!
ANY MESSAGE FOR US SIR INGGO?
Morning Man's message:
"Isn't this such a cool thing?!? The spirit truly lives on. The station that dared to be different back then is still alive, kicking and daring the odds again. I must give credit to Mike Sutton for this and, of course, George Frederick and the WXB102 staff.
To all our friends, I hope you can join me in the New Request Roundup every Friday, 6pm (pacific) in the u.s. that’s Saturday, 10am in the Philippines. It’s a 2-hr walk along memory lane and it would be nice to have you along.
and to you, DOC, Thanks for the interview"

THANK YOU VERY MUCH
Good Morning!!!!.... MAN!!

According to Tom Hooker it was the voice of Chuck Rolando who was used in the vocals of "A Taste Of Love". I think this is really nuts since the deep vocals of the song was excellent for a dance tune especially from that NEW WAVE ERA.
Well, I'm just wondering why "A Taste Of Love" wasn't included on "THE BEST OF DEN HARROW" CD. Maybe because of this controversy? Actually, It was the only DEN HARROW Hit here in MANILA during those times.
Here's the Music Video of that controversial song entitled:
"A TASTE OF LOVE"
Well, another thing that triggered me to make a blogpost of this song because my KABAYAN on "THE VAULT Live 365" will be having a VALENTINES SPECIAL entitled "A TASTE OF LOVE: The Ultimate Retro Dance Party" on FEBRUARY 14, 2009. Hmmmp!! That's something to look forward to. Isn't it? BENJIE"The Boy Wonder" and the rest of the guys are at it again!! Hmmmp!! "THE LOVE VAULT"? Sounds familiar!!
LISTEN TO "THE VAULT" by clicking their logo:
Now And Then.......
"A TASTE OF LOVE"!!
