Joey Ayala shows us how Lupang Hinirang ought to be sung.

“You’ll never sing the national anthem the same way again.”

I don’t recommend that you skip the short talk, but for just the remix, skip to 4:17.

Changelog:

  • Changed time signature from 4/4 to 6/8 to better portray how laid back Filipinos really are.
  • Corrected pronunciation of phrases “sa dagat at bundok, sa simoy at,” “may dilag and tula,” and “ang kislap ng watawat” among other phrases where the stress is misplaced due.
  • Changed last two lines to say “Aming ligaya, na pag may mang-aapi, ang magmahal ng dahil sa iyo.”
  • Also added group hug at the end to further make the point that we are peace-loving people.

I may have missed more, but I’m not that good with music anymore. Overall, I think it does reflect what we Filipinos mostly are. I hope someone, sooner or later, makes the law to adopt this.
