Look at that! Yours truly is going to be a part of the FHM.com.ph crew for a while! I don’t know, the guys asked me to do something similar to Lourd De Veyra’s This Is A Crazy Planets, which is ridiculous because he’s in a whole different level in the first place. But I can sure try; here’s to me doing my best to keep you posted every month!
In my first order of business, I will be talking about 10 OPM musicians who I believe could easily land an FHM babe any time of day, any day of the week. Being a performer is in itself a head turner, but the qualities we girls are aiming for are certainly much more than that. I’m talking about indisputable talent, humbled attitude towards fame, and most impressively, a good sense of humor, all of which I know you will be able to pick up, my dear reader. You’d be catching my fancy if you do! I’m pretty sure we are all into Chito Miranda or Rico Blanco, so let’s get down to it!
Why babes love him: Miggy is easily one of the hottest musicians floating out there in the local scene, but it’s his sarcastic humor and superb talent in sketching that will key in on him landing any babe out there. It also doesn’t hurt that his punk rock band remains to be alive and kicking. Hands up if you share the same sentiment!
Add pogi points for: Sense of humor
His makalaglag panty song: “Breathe Again”, from the album Chicosci
Vocalist, Parokya Ni Edgar
Why babes love him: It would be a crime not to include Chito Miranda in this list, because no babe would hesitate if given the chance to date him. Chito’s charisma, songwriting talent, and legendary humor onstage earned him a fan base that circles around any gender, young and old. And I heard the rest of PNE are all gentlemen!
Add pogi points for: Undeniable charisma
His makalaglag panty song: “Mr. Suave”, from the album Bigotilyo
Why babes love him: I only have three words to describe this dude: tall, dark, and handsome! Okay, maybe I’m being a little bit biased; not because we recently made a music video for 6Cyclemind’s latest single, and certainly not because I want the FHM nation to check it out. But you know, here’s the YouTube link if you insist. You want to see it, right?
Add pogi points for: Rugged handsomeness
His makalaglag panty song: “Basta Ako”, from the album Good By Sunday
Why babes love him: It’s pretty obvious that any FHM babe would find this one cute, since he has that boy next door quality which a lot of girls go crazy for. What impresses me the most however is the fact that he’s been keeping his music underground, despite the fact that he could easily be a major OPM star by now. He knows what he wants!
Add pogi points for: Boy next door demeanor
His makalaglag panty song: “Now It Starts”, from the album Now It Starts
Why babes love him: The former Rivermaya frontman has that something about him that makes him so damn sexy, and I’m still trying to figure out what it is. I guess FHM babes would find the mysterious premise hot, but Rico Blanco scores millions of pogi points for his kick-ass voice and Lennon-like songwriting skills. Am I going too far?
Add pogi points for: Sheer talent
His makalaglag panty song: “Your Universe”, from the album Your Universe
Ted Mark Cruz
Drummer, Sponge Cola
Why babes love him: I’m telling you right now, Ted is the kind of guy that attracts all the goods vibes in life. With his charming smile and unbelievable skills on the drums I find myself smiling whenever he is around. It also helps that they also have a frontman with an inviting personality in Yael Yuzon. Damn it, Sponge Cola, why are you all so pogi?!
Add pogi points for: Good vibes
His makalaglag panty song: “Di Na Mababawi”, from the album Sponge Cola
Why babes love him: FHM nation, I’m commanding you to watch out for this guy. I would have to say that he is one of the cutest people I have ever met. Hands down one of the nicest guys with crazy talent! A little bit of trivia: his Davao-based 4-piece band won the Nescafe 3 in 1 Soundskool contest in 2009. Success is written all over him, which is what babes want!
Add pogi points for: Full of promise
His makalaglag panty song: “Sarap Maging Single”, from the album Playtime
Why babes love him: Paolo Valenciano is the type of guy girls would love to bring home to their parents, and babes sure wouldn’t mind if he introduces them to his folks in return since Gary Valenciano is like, the greatest ever. I admire Paolo for being down to earth and super friendly, not to mention marvelously talented. Good genes ahead of us!
Add pogi points for: Down to earth
His makalaglag panty song: “Prodigal”, from the album Hello Anxiety
Why babes love him: Kian probably tops this list when it comes to the number of fan girls following him around, and I commend the guy for successfully transitioning his talents from music to acting. In an industry where people think doing acting jobs is equivalent to selling out, Kian is a breath of fresh air for not caring about what haters are saying. Hot!
Add pogi points for: Devil may care attitude
His makalaglag panty song: “Pawiin”, from Big Band Syndicate’s album Ctrl+Alt+Delete+Restart
Vocalist, Sponge Cola
Why babes love him: More than anything, girls will fall in love with his domineering singing voice. Even though most of his songs are mostly sung in Tagalog – a language I’m still trying to understand – I couldn’t think of a better musician to do the serenading for me.
Add pogi points for: Manly charms
His makalaglag panty song: “KLSP”, from the album Palabas
