A lot of us grew up listening, whether we were aware of it or not, to Noel Cabangon. In fact, the renowned singer and songwriter is one of the most recognizable artists in the local industry, whether through how he sings, how he performs, or through his many classic songs:
However, he isn't content to be relegated to be one of the mere "classics" of OPM; in fact, he's constantly looking for ways to innovate his craft and remain relevant, with which he is largely successful, and enjoys a good following from both his older fans, as well as listeners of the younger generations.
Last Valentine's Day, he decided to release a poignant song for those refusing to let go. The song, aptly titled "Pipiliin Pang Maghintay," is an ode to lovers who simply refuse to let go, with lines like:
"Ayaw bumitaw kay hirap umayaw
Ang tibok ng puso’y ikaw
Ayaw mawalay kahit puso’y nangangalay"
It's a song not meant to serenade those in love, but instead to comfort those who are still loving, no matter how painful it may be. Listen to the new track here, and reminisce on better days:
