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.
Seen on Reddit, by user L30ne:
- 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.
