♪ Panaginip Lang (Paramita, 2005) ♪

Hearing “Panaginip Lang” makes me want to dance immediately. It reminds me of one of those tribal-mating songs with a melancholy voice to match. But the mood instantly changes when you realize what it sings about: freedom from past love and moving on (ngunit bago ka lumisan / palayain ako). The lyrics are typical yet romantic, but the beat of the whole song makes it original and brings the entire mood together.

Ano ang iyong madarama / Kung malaman mong ito’y panaginip lang

Although I don’t have any idea what happened to Paramita after the release of their second album, I think “Panaginip Lang” is still worthy to be shared. Not to put too fine a point on it: it is timeless. Listening to it ten years from now would still bring the same feeling and it would not sound luma.
