It's rare to catch the classic OPM hitmakers from the '70s to '90s performing live these days.
Either the renowned artists whom we grew up with are too old to take the stage, or the revered bands your uncles and his best buds listened to have parted ways, some even for good.
Good thing the likes of FM radio station Wish 107.5 are making a conscious effort to invite these respected local acts for a chance to relive our old favorites on the airwaves, inside their state-of-the-art roadshow bus.
Among the best throwback numbers are the following:
Cooky Chua - 'Kapayapaan' (Tropical Depression)
The Color It Red frontwoman does a cover of their '90s batchmate's song. A stripped-down version of the reggae anthem accentuated Cooky's powerful vocals.
Siakol - 'Bakit Ba'
Like sisig, Siakol's biggest hit has proven to be a staple in every Pinoy inuman session.
Bobby Balingit (The Wuds) - 'At Nakalimutan Ang Diyos'
Punk pioneers The Wuds started a revolution through their socio-political material. It's just haunting how the updated lyrics seem to reflect our current state.
Dong Abay - 'Perpekto'
Dong's musical heroics didn't end after he departed from Yano. The bald and bearded man's influence spans generations, thanks to his epic discography.
Mike Hanopol and Pepe Smith (Juan Dela Cruz Band) - 'Laki Sa Layaw'
Even a mild stroke that made it difficult for him to speak can't stop Pepe from rocking out. Props to Mike for letting his old buddy play "Jeproks" with him.
