T: Hey, who sang that song that references Pepe Smith, Chicoy Pura, etc.?
M: Huh? I don’t know. Ang alam ko lang “Betamax” by Sandwich.
T: Ay, that’s it! I forgot…
M: I can’t believe you forgot a Sandwich song!
Can’t believe it, either. Which is why I’m posting this vid of Sandwich performing the song in 70s Bistro to make up for it. (I miss 70s Bistro. Punta tayoooh!) I found this song funny and poignant first time I heard it, and last night I heard it again in the cab. Wala lang, guess it just reminded me of what it was like before. Like, how did we ever cope without cellphones?? In college, whenever we needed to meet up with friends, we’d post Post-Its at the tambayan or in message boards where our friends were likely to pass by and hope by the grace of God they see the note. Sorry na lang if s/he didn’t see the note, or it fell off, or the wind blew it away…But we just didn’t worry about it because we didn’t really have an alternative. Now, we get antsy if we accidentally leave our phones at home, as if the day isn’t complete somehow. In any case, enjoy the vid. Bonus: Raimund sings the E-heads’ “Shake Yer Head” which I think is one of their best songs evah. BTW, Mabes just reminded me of the upcoming E-Heads reunion concert at the CCP grounds on August 30. Let’s waaatch! 🙂
