Purchased A Piece of Philippine Pop Rock Music History

I don’t remember when was the last time I purchased a magazine or a CD for myself.  This is because these items are slowly waning and fading away from the realms of present humanity.  These are soon to be extinct.

This is due to the ever growing popularity of the reliable internet where everything that everybody seem to need is available.  Today’s magazines are already easily available online in the form of blogs, e-zines or webzines.   While songs can easily be purchased and downloaded via iTunes, Amazon MP3 or Google Music.

But last Sunday, I know that I just got to have these soon-to-be-inexistent stuffs.  However, with such a purchase, I have yet to establish if I purchased a magazine with free CD or if I purchased a CD with free magazine.  Whichever freakin’ way you may want to put it, one thing is for sure, I have with me a cool piece of Philippine pop rock history.

I’m pretty sure this magazine with enclosed complimentary CD or a CD contained inside a free of charge magazine will – in a couple of decades – be considered a valuable collectible.  This is because these incorporated items enfolds the reemergence of one of the greatest Filipino bands of this country, the Eraserheads.

Some Polished Culture

The Philippine Madrigal Singers has long been a musical ambassador of my country.  They have brought countless honors to Philippines.  They are my country’s representatives who imparts to the world through their majestic musicality that there is more to the Philippines than mega-disasters, mega-traffic and mega-corruption.

Through the Philippine Madrigal Singers, let me place a piece of polished culture in this blog.  Just watch and listen! Their incredibly refined musical harmony can simply be compared to a gourmet food fit for an aching spirit.

I’m pretty sure after listening to this short musical showcase, you can say that… all is well and good with the world.
