Sya si Chris

August 20, 2009

I have been a bit busy doing a lot other things online for the past days nights. Hence, no new entries. LOL. One reason was youtube. I have been on youtube for the past couple of nights watching Chris, 100% American guy from New Jersey singing OPMs. Apparently, I came to know about him from Facebook as I’m a member of that group called Definitely Filipino (yata ah, I’m not so sure about the group’s name. LOL!). And sometime last week, they featured this guy. I started watching his videos from then on. So technically now, fan na nya ako! Hehehe!

I was really amazed and impressed how Chris spends too much time playing our local music and belting those famous Pinoy rock songs. I have to admit though that I myself don’t know some of those songs. Shame on me! LOL.

He goes by the handle Ako si Chris. I have added him to my FB list and he immediately accepted. He even left this note on my wall:

Hey Winkie! Thanks for the add and for helping me spread the word about an American from New Jersey rocking out in Tagalog. It’s OPM with an American Twist. I call it “jOePM”.

To give you a clearer idea what I am trying to tell here, ladies and gentlemen, sya si Chris:

That was  his rendition of Salamat by The Dawn while here is his version of Ang Huling El Bimbo by Eraserheads:

 

And, my fave so far is his version of Narda by Kamikazee. I have this in my iTouch now😛

 

Isn’t he amazing? I hope he sings the song “Manila”. I bet that one will also suit his voice.

For more of his jOePM songs, check out his youtube site.

And oh, he can be reached through these links:

    There are some Filipinos who are “trying-hard” to be Americans, and there are some Americans who want to be one of us, Filipinos. Ironic isn’t it?

    na appreciate nya ang pinoy rock!

    malamang di nya naiintindihan lahat ng lyrics… but i bet he understands the message of the entire song. what is really amazing is he really appreciates our music and he even said “kano cya pero pinoy sa puso”. oh di bah?!?!

    Ayos din yang si Chris. Mabuti naman at gusto niya ang mga kantang OPM.

    Meron din akong nakita pang isa na American na kumanta ng Buloy. Ang galing din.

    napanood ko na rin ‘to. actually mas maganda ang boses nya kay chris. i decided to feature chris kasi bukod sa sobrang dami ng videos nya eh friends kami sa FB at higit sa lahat, mas kyut cya! whahaha! seriously speaking, if you’ll visit chris’s sites, you’ll notice that he’s pinoy at heart.

  19. August 22, 2009 6:08 am

    waw
    nakakaelibs ah,,,

    puron amerikano kumakanta ng mga ganyan..

    pero bat ganun.. pag sila gumawa ng ganyan kapuri puri
    kahit bumabaluktot sila sa tagalog, nakakatuwa nagugustuhan natin.

    pero pag tayong mga pinoy pag baluktot sa english, pinagtatawanan.

    hmmmm

    nice question, hamster! here’s my take on that though:

    maybe, just maybe, universal language kasi ang english. plus the fact that filipinos are known as one of the best english-speaking nations, we are then expected to speak or communicate in english fluently. so for other nationalities, americans for this matter, speaking tagalog so very fluently is really amazing.

    may foynt ba ako, lil bro???

      i love ur observation, jason. the U.S. is known for their SUPERIORITY complex…kapag different sa kanila eh turing nila eh inferior or, at best, “exotic” daw. in that sense, pagme accent ka eh tingin nila stupid ka…kahit na doctor or engineer ka sa bansa mo. and in the same sense, medyo americanized na rin ang perception ng mga pinoy (di ba prejudice rin tayo sa “negro,” “beho,” “bakla,” “yagit,” etc.). but at the same time, pagsila ang nagsalita ng ibang language eh “cultured and sophisticated” sila…kahit na baluktot. in most cases, in other parts of the world, speaking the language of the locals (kahit na baluktot) is a show of respect to the culture. sa US, many would think that ur illeterate.
      that is why hanggat mga bata pa tayo (including me) we must celebrate diversity in all levels.
      btw…not all americans r like that.
      …my wife isn’t like that.

    • August 23, 2009 8:09 am

      ayeeee kahit english ang sagot mo

      ipilit kong intindihin ate winkie

      @Jason

      Jason, hindi mo ba alam ang balita? Pagkanta mo ng “Two Less Lonely People” ay sikat na sikat na.🙂 Di lang sa kabilang barrio ito umabot. Pati mga dayuhan nakikinig na din nito. Di ko alam kung gaano katotoo ang kwento na mada-“download” pa daw sa itune ito.

      bakit “two less lonely people”? jason, please explain!!!😛

      Binibining Winkie, sa iyo ang mensaheng ito. Maari bang iyong mabura, ang “gaano kaya katotoo ito” na linya. Sa pagmamadali kong tumugon, di ko na nabasa ang isinulat ko.
