remember these lyrics?
Kung ako ay naiiyak
Mababaw lang talaga ang luha ko
Di ko mapigil
Ang aking damdamin
Puede bang umalis ka na
Tumutunog na ang beeper mo
yep, Torpedo by the Eraserheads. classic na classic. bakit? imagine, “tumutunog na ang beeper mo”. when was the last time you last saw a beeper?! ako nga di man lang nakahawak noon eh. i was a freshman in HS or late into my grade school years nung nauso mga yun. and yung mga cellular phones eh sinlaki ng landline at simbigat ng baterya ng kotse.
moving back another decade or so, we had these lines:
Radyo, TV at mga lumang komiks
Wala ng ibang mapaglibangan,
At kung meron kang tatawagan
Trenta sentimos ika’y makakaltasan
well, uso pa din namang libangan ang radyo at TV. pero lumang komiks? may nagbabasa pa ba ng komiks? i’m not talking about these DC and Marvel sosyal comics. i’m talking about Funny Komiks, Liwayway, those that inspired the evening teleserye marathons we have right now (which i absolutely hate). i wish i preserved my old Funny Komiks issues, though. i bet they could amount to thousands of pesos in the future.
and wala pang internet noon. wala pang naba-badtrip at nagmumura sa mga customer service representatives about how bad or slow their internet connection is. and finally, “trenta sentimos”!!! kids would either laugh at this or give you that quizzical look. reminds me of those gigantic red PLDT payphones. hahaha… and ngayon, actually, kung may phonecard ka pa, pagtatawanan ka na lang ng mga tao. pero nung college, i still had one and i would use it when i’d call sa bahay sa pampanga from my dormitory on campus! wow, that was just 10 years ago!!!
ambilis naman talaga magbago ng panahon. i wonder which of the songs being played today would have this effect or reminders after a decade or so… got any ‘dated’ songs/lyrics? share naman diyan! 🙂 tag friends din para masaya! 😀
