It’s been two weeks since I downloaded Sugarfree’s album Live with The Manila Symphony Orchestra. Two weeks ago, I was in the mood (as always) to listen to some OPM melodramatic slash good vibes tunes like Monobloc and Dianetic by Pupil. After the fulfillment I had with Pupil’s music, I shifted to more drama songs from Sugarfree. Sugarfree’s music is always on my playlist – whatever my mood is – and merely hearing the band’s name makes me want to listen to them right away.
No, Sugarfree’s music is not always for the heartbroken. In fact, I still listen to their music even if I’m too happy. There’s a magic to Ebe’s words and lines plus the melody that band induce to those beautifully written words. If you’re a Sugarfree fan, I’m sure you know how their music can be so fuckin’ depressing most of the time. This band will always make sure to make you feel the PAIN. The inevitable pain we’ve been pushing away.
“Nakakaiyak sa ganda,” the line I said to someone. When I heard the whole album, I can’t help but shed a tear or three (maybe). Ang daming feels! It made you feel those unwanted feelings and started to go back from something you want to get rid of.
Well, I’m just in the mood of drowning myself with memories and sentiments. So, listen to the songs, ok? Cheers! 🙂

Most of my favorite tracks were included. So, I’ll share some of the lines that I religiously love:
May panyong ilang ulit nang niluhaan
Isang patak sa bawat beses na tayoy nasaktan
Malabo na ba ang linya sa ating dalawa | Managinip ulit tayo sa sarili nating mundo
Alam mo naman kung saan ang bahay ko
Baka sakaling magbago ang isip mo please
KUNG AYAW MO NA SA AKIN
Nagsisising gigising sa katotohanan ‘di ka naman talaga akin
Ito na ang ating huling gabi
Hagkan natin ang bawat sandaling nalalabi
Ng gabing kailanma’y di malilimutan
Kailangang masanay na muling nag-iisa
Kapit ka sa akin, kapit ka sa akin
Di kita bibitawan
WAG KA NANG UMIYAK
O kay tagal kitang mamahalin
If you want to listen to the album (I hope so), you can download it from 1 Happy Place. Ah, the power of internet, I’m in love with it.
So, if you’re feeling down, Sugarfree’s music is just right for the injury. Hehe. 😀
