From “hele” to OPM: songs that remind us of mothers’ unfading love

by | Entertainment

May. 15, 17 | 11:10 am

Music has evolved. The old piano accompaniments are now sparked by touches of electric music and unconventional way of playing instruments.
But as OPM (original Pinoy music) achieves noticeable changes, the definition of a mother’s love goes along with it.
The fact that love for mothers remains to be one of the best inspirations, creating compelling music never fades.
In line with the celebration of Mother’s day, here’s a list of old and new songs that will make us want to revisit our childhood that were mostly spent with mothers:

Sa ugoy ng duyan
Artists: May Gorospe-Favis, Jay Cayuca, Jeremiah, Kuh Ledesma, Lea Salonga, Aiza Seguerra, Basil Valdez, Regine Velasquez, Kristel Belo, Christian Bautista
Highlight: “Sa piling ni nanay, langit ay buhay. Puso kong may dusa sabik sa ugoy ng duyan”
A new wave of artist and music styles would come, but this song will never be erased from the list—and will never be scathed from top of the list.
This calm music resembles the vibe that we’ve all experienced while sleeping next to our mother or on their lap.
We may have forgotten how it felt, but this song could also take us back to how it feels like being swayed by our mother’s arms.

Iingatan ka
Artist: Carol Banawa
Highlight: “May namamahal aakay sa iyo, aking ina’y ikaw ang nagbigay ng buhay ko”
This song is commonly used in karaoke singing contests. But no matter how frequent singers belt its high notes, this song remains as a top song that could describe a child’s gratitude for a mother’s hardships.
Carol Banawa’s “Iingatan ka” negates a belief that a child’s duties to her mother will stop once he or she creates own family.
Iingatan Ka speaks for a grateful child who vows to remain beside his or her mother in return of his or her mother’s sacrifices.

Nanay
Artist: Joey Benin
Highlight: “Mula pagkabata hanggang paglaki, ikaw ay lagi naming katabi. Kahit saan pa man maparoon, ikaw ay nandoroon”
This Inang Yaya themesong affirms the belief that when a mom says, “I will be wherever you are,” it is not an exaggeration.
Mothers always find a way to keep track of her children’s life—through mobile communication, through secret conversation with her children’s friends and teachers, or personal spying.
Those who are connected with their mother’s social media account will find this relatable.
If Facebook keeps track of mother’s visits on your profile, she will have a complete attendance.

Glowing Inside
Artist: Nikki Gil
Highlight: “You cast my fears away, you wipe those tears, you gave me strength each day”
Although this song was originally made for a shampoo brand commercial, Nikki Gil’s track has been widely used as a graduation song. Why not?
This song is a combination of “thank you” and “promise” statements—a thank you for being a best friend and a promise of achievement as a reward for her mother’s lasting love.

Wildwood
Artist: Reese Lansangan
Highlight: “I’ve got a roof over my head, I’ve got a warm blanket on my bed, I’ve got a map across the road, I’ll see my destiny unfurl for me”
“Behind every successful person is a loving woman,” an old adage has it. This independently released single tells about the confidence of a child in facing upcoming challenges, anchored by a mother’s love.
Reese’s soulful song speaks retells how a mother’s genuine love and guidance could serve as an alas to ace trials.
