ENTENG’s Pick: Your Song on Valentine’s Day

February — the official Love month filled everyone with chocolates, flowers, and letters, but here at the Enterprise, we will help you on how to make your Valentine’s Day extra special. How about we incorporate some Original Pilipino Music (OPM) to identify which will be your song on Valentine’s Day? Will it be something like “Umiibig lang paghanda na?” or “Ikaw pa rin ang pipiliin ko.” as your relationship quote? Let’s see and find out what categories you feel most connected to:


In a relationship

Some couples have their theme song as a symbol of one’s relationship. It shows that music is one way to express and communicate love to one’s partner, magnifying safe spaces of comfort, hugs, and warmth such examples include:

  • Araw-araw

Mahiwaga, pipiliin ka sa araw-araw” is one line from Ben&Ben that can make you feel wanted. It is reassuring to know that your partner will choose you every day of their life, whatever situation you are in.

  • Pasilyo

To be in someone’s prayer might be the top-tier love language. The phrase “Paboritong panalangin ko’y makasama ka sa pagtanda” from the band SunKissed Lola will surely give that kilig factor when someone sings this song to them.


It’s complicated or situationship

“Situationship” is a new term used for two people’s relationships without a label, but they treat each other like partners. It can sometimes confuse them within a specific situation, hence its name.

  • Situationship

Ano ba ang tawag sa di ko nga syota, pero kayakap ko naman sa gabi?” — a never-ending question from Janine Berdine’s interpretation on the feeling being with someone, but their is nothing to be sure of or true within its almost in a romantic ties.

  • Migraine

A migraine is a severe headache that causes extreme pain, but what more could cause extreme pain other than the realization, “Oo nga pala, hindi nga pala tayo.” Moonstar88’s complicated anthem is an immaculate metaphor depicting one’s thoughts on their head-aching connection with someone.



Being single is a choice that does not indicate an individual’s happiness or lack of love. People may have different reasons why they remain on this path, such as focusing on personal growth or waiting for someone. Even some OPM artists never failed to make music for the solo but were not ready to mingle individuals.

  • Ako Naman Muna

Angela Ken’s composition talks about self-love. “Dahan-dahang tumingin sa salamin, upang makita ang ating kagandahan,” depicts the importance of appreciating oneself. It shows that one can receive appreciation from within.

  • Kung Di Rin Lang Ikaw

Some do not get reciprocated for their feelings but still opt not to find another one. “Kung hindi ikaw ay hindi na lang, pipilitin pang umasa para sa ‘ting dalawa,” a line from December Avenue shows the willingness to wait and hope that one day, their hearts will align.



Some people tend to listen to sad songs when they are brokenhearted. It may be because they perceive it as their way to release the sadness they feel. However, the flowing emotions of every note on the list just make you feel like you are also brokenhearted.

  • Paubaya

Sometimes, it is better to let go than to hold onto something that can cause even more pain. Moira Dela Torre’s “Paubaya” interprets how affections can eventually fade and find another that can treat you to what you need. 

  • Diba

Did someone also promise to stick by your side until you got old? Or did someone build their dreams with you but eventually leave? Maybe you can relate to Zack Tabudlo as he had the same thoughts, “Sabi mo no’n sa akin, hanggang pagtanda.”


On Relapse

Relapse is a new slang that describes someone getting better but suddenly getting back to worse. Are you in a state where you thought you had already moved on, but after listening to a piece of music, a thing, or a moment reminded you of someone you used to love? Hence, these songs might give you that relapse moment:

  • Shot Puno

JK Labajo’s relatable line among Generation Z depicts the phrase used whenever they feel sad or broken. Within the lines, “sa mga labing aking nahalikan, hanap ko ang sayo” shows the feeling of longingness– a once a huge part of one’s life.

  • Umaasa

The memories formed are the ones that make it hard to let go. Those memories tend to cause people to think, “magbabalik ang nakaraan, ibabalik ang pinagmulan,” which causes them to hope again – to hold onto the love they once shared.
