Back to the 90′s 2: Anime TV Series


We can call these animes as soap operas for kids.

When we were young (o aminin na, di na tayo bata), we would watch these after playing on the streets or sometimes before we go to school (in my case, I had afternoon classes back then).

Almost all of these animes are from World Masterpiece Theater by Nippon Animation.
ABS-CBN bought the TV rights.

Back to the 90′s 1: Dance Songs


Like Artie of Glee, I am a frustrated dancer (btw, I’m not on a wheelchair LOL). As a kid, I would always watch my sister dance to these popular tunes.

These songs have gibberish lyrics, if not sung in Japanese or French or they are rap/dance songs. Our generation would sing and dance to it during Christmas parties, intramurals, fiestas or even when we were playing on the streets. We didn’t even care if we knew the exact title of the song nor the artist who sang it. Though I thought, if we had MTV when these songs were popular, we would know the artists names by heart.

Naalala ko pa may mga dance contests pa on TV lalo na sa Eat Bulaga.
Ang nakakatawa since some songs are in Japanese or French or dahil rap song nga sya, papalitan ang mga lyrics ng Tagalog. Madalas sleazy pa yung lyrics. Like this first video here:

French/Japanese/Latin songs

1. Angelina – PSY

Of course, who could forget the famous French lines replaced by Tagalog that go “baho mmmm mo…amoy mmmm… di ka nagsasabon, kinalikot mo pa” I found this subtitled version on YT.
