18 OPM Songs You Forgot You Used To Love During High School

"So what's the point in all of this, when you will never change..."

Posted on

1. "Narda" by Kamikazee

You definitely sang it when: your crush walked into the school cafeteria and you hoped they would notice you.

Why you loved it: "Narda" is an ode to the beloved Pinay superhero and might as well be our generation's anthem. But more than that, this is the perfect song to send out to someone who's attention you're trying to get but is way out of our league to even notice.

2. "The Day You Said Goodnight" by Hale

You definitely sang it when: you were waiting for next period and you just had to play the guitar.

Why you loved it: Remember Hale's vocalist, Champ Lui Pio?? Remember how every girl wanted to date him and every guy wanted to be like him???? <3 <3 <3

3. "Oo" by Up Dharma Down

You definitely sang it when: you got friend-zoned for the first time and you thought you were gonna die.

Why you loved it: Yaaaaas long-haired Armi Millare with her chunky headband telling us to listen to our mothers to avoid getting our hearts broken yaaaaaas.

4. "Jeepney" by Spongecola

You definitely sang it when: you literally rode a jeepney going to and from school.

Why you loved it: At the time when we probably never even experienced heartbreak, it's kinda odd that this song spoke to us on a very personal level. But it still did. And we still loved it anyway.

5. "Sugod" by Sandwich

You definitely sang it when: your teacher announced an early dismissal and you had enough time to make tambay before your curfew.

Why you loved it: What can I say? This song taught us how to rock and roll. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

6. "Hallelujah" by Bamboo

You definitely sang it when: you wanted to piss your classmate off with the "HOOOOOooooooOOooo" lyric.

Why we loved it: We never really knew what this song was talking about. Is it about rebelliion? Love?? And why is it called "Hallelujah"??? We're not exactly sure, but the melody got to us, anyway.

7. "Hawak Kamay" by Yeng Constantino

You definitely sang it when: it was the end of the school year and you were in that friends-forever ~mood~.

Why you loved it: This song is so simple, straight from the heart, and perfect for anyone we love and care for. <3

8. "You'll Be Safe Here" by Rivermaya

You definitely sang it when: your parents disapproved of your relationship with your high school love and you're like "I'll fight for us, beh."

Why you loved it: There's nothing like Rico Blanco in faux fur telling you you'll be safe in his arms. And in the middle of a forest at that.

9. "High" by The Speaks ft. Barbie Almalbis

You definitely sang it when: your local school band was playing this on stage and everyone was singing along.

Why you loved it: Nope, not that kind of "high." But still, a good "high." Also, Barbie Almalbis is such a cutie pie. <3 O, ayan, nag-rhyme pa.

10. "Wag Na Wag Mong Sasabihin" by Kitchie Nadal

You definitely sang it when: you were getting over your very first heartbreak.

Why you loved it: Kitchie Nadal in a messy hair tie playing the guitar is the "not-your-typical-kinda-girl" ladies aspired to be.

11. "Bitiw" by Spongecola

You definitely sang it when: you just wanted to sing really loudly when there weren't any teachers around.

Why you loved it: Every time Yael Yuzon belts out "HHHWAGGHHH KANG BIBITIWWW BIGLAAAHHHH," we're like, "same".

12. "Summer Song" by Silent Sanctuary

You definitely sang it when: you were hanging out at a friend's house during summer break.

Why you loved it: This song is so chill. It's perfect to play on a lazy summer afternoon. Because it's about summer. And it's about love. Ahhhhh what's not to like?

13. "Akin Ka Na Lang" by Itchyworms

You definitely sang this when: the campus crush walked by you in the school corridor and you just wanted to rub their face on your face.

Why you loved it: If there's one way to be possessive while still managing to be cute, it's through this song. And the music video's classic noir style adds to its charm, too!

14. "Ikaw Lamang" by Silent Sanctuary

You definitely sang this when: you were all lovey-dovey with your high school girlfriend or boyfriend and you thought you were gonna be together forever lol.

Why you loved it: This song will forever be beautiful, but it's just never the same after you two broke up.

15. "Gitara" by Parokya ni Edgar

You definitely sang it when: you were too torpe to profess your love to your crush.

Why you loved it: This is a modern day harana, if you ask me. Plus, the guitar plucking in this song is just divine.

16. "Nobela" by Join The Club

You definitely sang it when: you were having one of those dramatic smiling-on-the-outside-but-crying-on-the-inside days.

Why you loved it : Join The Club vocalist: 🎶Ngumiti kahit na napipilitan...🎶

Us: lol same

17. "Hiling" by Paramita

You definitely sang it when: a friend of yours just got heartbroken and you thought the song would gonna make them feel better, but you just made it worse.

Why you loved it: "Hiling" is the national anthem of all martyrs in love. Ang saket beh!

18. "Will You Ever Learn" by Typecast

You definitely sang it when: every time the CD player you borrowed from a teacher started playing this song from your burned CD—which you got for 50 pesos.

Why you loved it: OMG this is the song that transformed us to emo eye liner-loving kids who just hated the world. Teenage angst pa more!
