A K A L A - Parokya ni Edgar

The ever perennial Pinoy band Parokya ni Edgar is out to give OPM music aficionados with another sensible song with really great melody. It’s really good and it had me amazed the first time I heard it. Another Music news now, Eraserheads might stage a reunion concert. Is this reconciliation between Ely Buendia and Raymond Marasigan? Well, I’ll definitely keep my high hopes for this.
Now, back on the PNE song. Read between the lyrics and see just how intricate this song is. Fluid rendition yet very substantial. Here it is guys, Parokya ni Edgar’s Akala!







(Chito)Akala ko ice cream, yun pala beer,

Akala reverse yun pala second gear,

Akala ko kasya yun pala hindi,

Akala ko tama yun pala mali...

(Vinci)Akala ko hiphop yun pala metal

Akala ko batis yun pala kanal

Akala ko toothpaste yun pala glue

Akala ko birdie yun pala blue

(Gab)Akala ko tsinelas yun pala sapatos,

Akala ko umabot yun pala kapos,

Akala ko bukas yun pala kahapon

Akala ko mamaya yun pala ngayon...

(Chito)Akala ko alam ko na ang lahat

Ng dapat kong malaman ngunit

Mali na naman, pero ok lang yan...

Wag kang matakot na baka magkamali

Walang mapapala kung di ka magbakasakali

Dahil lumilipas ang oras, baka ka maiwanan

Kung hindi mo susubukan...

(Din2)Akala ko chicken yun pala asado

Akala ko bukas pero yun pala sarado

Akala ko mansanas pero yun pala banana

Akala ko meron pa, pero yun pala wala na

(Darius)Akala ko foreign yun pala pinoy

Akala ko blackjack yun pala pusoy

Akala ko talo yun pala panaloAkala ko si chito, yun pala ako

(Chito)Akala ko dati walang mangyayari

Akala din nila ngayon wala silang masabi

Akala ng lahat mapapagod din ako

Mabuti nalang matigas ang aking ulo

Akala ko walang mapupuntahan kahit na paghirapan ngunit,

Mali nanaman, kung hindi mo sinubukan sana'y hindi ko na nalaman

Eh di nasayang lang

Wag kang matakot na baka magkamali

Walang mapapala kung di ka magbakasakali

Dahil lumilipas ang oras

Baka ka maiwanan kung hindi mo susubukan

Wag kang matakot na baka magkamali

Walang mapapala kung di ka magbakasakali

Dahil lumilipas ang oras

Baka ka maiwanan kung hindi mo susubukan

Another great song from the Parokya ni Edgar that sure to be a Top Hit in no time. Ang ganda ng melody at yung message, bagay na bagay sa mga taong walang confident sa kanilang mga sarili.

local music is now dominating the airwaves......
...it's good, if people get the hang of it, they will think it's hip and they would therefore not think that anything PINOY is synonymous to being JOLOGS.....

akala is a simple fun song but very inspiring..

true enough, you have to try doing what you want to do for you to know what its like doing what you want to do.. one has to take risk. if it turns out to be good or bad, at least alam mo dahil you experienced it doing it. you still become a better person sa huli. :)

PNE is really the best band here in philippines. They just show how awesome they are and how intellegent they are. Thats the reason why i really like PNE. Aside from they are humble, everytime they write a song, its really good and it makes sense..
