Smokey Musings

Standard

It was a holiday last November 1 and I spent the entire day at home with my family.  I read various books, checked emails and lazed around. 

 My search led me to visit OPM website and dug into old Filipino music.  I found Smokey Mountain and it brought back childhood memories.  I personally like Kailan and Can This Be Love from the original group consisting of Geneva Cruz, Tony Lambino, Jeffrey Hidalgo and James Coronel.  After the original group disbanded sometime in the early 90s, a second group was organized composed of James Coronel, Jayson Agangan, Chedi Vergara and Zhar Santos.  This second group popularized Da Coconut Nut and Paraiso. 

Here is the lyrics and mp3 of Kailan and Can This Be Love for a quick music fix: Sing-a-along:

KAILAN

Bakit kaya nangangamba
Sa tuwing ika’y nakikita
Sana nama’y magpakilala

Ilang ulit nang nagkabangga
Aklat kong dala’y pinulot mo pa
`Di ka pa rin nagpakilala

REFRAIN
Bawat araw sinusundan
`Di ka naman tumitingin
Ano’ng aking dapat gawin?

Bakit kaya umiiwas
Binti ko ba’y mayroong gasgas
Nais ko lang magpakilala

Dito’y mayroon sa puso ko
Munting puwang laan sa’yo
Maaari bang magpakilala?

(Repeat REFRAIN)

CHORUS
Kailan (kailan)
Kailan mo ba mapapansin ang aking lihim?
Kahit ano’ng aking gawin, `di mo pinapansin
Kailan (kailan)
Kailan hahaplusin ang pusong bitin na bitin?
Kahit ano’ng gawing lambing, `di mo pa rin pansin

CAN THIS BE LOVE

Can this be love I’m feeling right now
I know for certain I’m feeling right now
I don’t recall ever feeling this way
Tell me what does one say
To one who makes me feel this way
Can this be love I’m feeling right now
I am not sure of this feeling somehow
Why do I tremble whenever you’re near
I can’t seem to say my words so you’ll hear

CHORUS:
This is the first time I’m gonna say “I love you”
It’s the first time I ever felt so helpless deep inside
If I had to say a thousand times I’d tell you once again
This is the first time I’m gonna say “I love you”

Can this be love I’m feeling right now
I love the feeling it’s giving me now
A voice inside me is guiding me now
It’s telling me now
To take your hand and say

CHORUS:
This is the first time I’m gonna say “I love you”
It’s the first time I ever felt so helpless deep inside
If I had to say a thousand times I’d tell you once again
This is the first time I’m gonna say “I love you”
This is the first time I’m gonna say “I love you”
It’s the first time I ever felt so helpless deep inside
If I had to say a thousand times I’d tell you once again
This is the first time
This is the first time
It’s the first time I’m gonna say “I love you”
