Magasin - English Version (EXPOSED!) --Lyrics, Artists, atbp.

Ano pa nga ba kundi eto na, eto na, eto na! Ilalabas ko na ang mga kahindik hindik at nakakapangilabot na mga pangyayaring nagaganap na hindi dapat mabunyag pero dahil sa kahilingan ng nakararami ay napipilitan akong magwaldas ng mga impormasyong maaring makapagpababa ng integridad ng aking mga kaibigan at kakilala na sangkot sa anumang kaguluhang akin ngayong ipahahayag...

Magasin - Eraserheads (English Version) -- The complete exposure!

Magasin was originally composed, arranged, performed, and recorded by a famous band from the Philippines, Eraserheads. The song was actually written in Tagalog (Filipino Language), composed by the lead vocalist/guitarist of the group, Ely Buendia... 



Now this video... is something else! I'm not pretty sure if I'm violating somebody else's pride, freedom, reputation, personality, privacy, or whatsoever they may accused of me, but the truth is... I was present when they made this project.

And to testify, this really is a group project for our Filipino subject. They are actually my friends, each and everyone of them that you see in the video. Luckily, I wasn't really part of the group. I'm not sure if I or they decided not to include me in the footage. Either way, I'd still choose not to be included in the video.

Okay let me start with the info... If I'm not mistaken, as far as I can recall ,this was done during our 2nd Year in college. Our Filipino Professor (Ms. Ifurung) required us to do two music videos, one Tagalog, and one English. Then she asked as to translate them on their opposite languages -- English to Tagalog, and vice- versa.

Truth be told, I was supposed to be in this group. But at the time when the members were picked, the other group got to pick me first. So as a friend, I just stayed, helped, and watched them make their project for I can no longer be part of the group.

Now, I wrote this blog because from the time they brought me the news that they have uploaded this video and told me "oi abe! nakita mo na ba yung video na inupload namen sa youtube??? ang dami ng views, tingnan mo dali!!!!" So this made me like, "oh! oh! oh! okay, okay! wait let me see it..." And from then on, I was extremely glad to see people getting so into this "project thing" that we did.

From time to time I visit that channel to see if there are more views and comments. It doesn't really matter if some comments are rude, but I would really like to THANK THOSE WHO "somehow" APPRECIATE the video. It's just like a petty project, for crying out loud! We didn't even really thought of getting serious about it. It was for pure fun. But luckily, really... it took an A+. It was like the highest graded Music Video in our class, even higher than my group's project. But I'm really proud I was part of that production even if I was just an observer. And I also kept on suggesting more corny inputs for that video. I never really thought it was way over corny.

Let's share the COMPLETE Magasin - Eraserheads (English Version) Lyrics
well actually almost complete.... this was like three or four years ago, I can't really seem to remember them all... uhm don't worry it's only one line. That's it! And I actually believe that when Pags was singing that portion he really did messed up on that line. *LMAO*


*** ok! so my friend Joji here followed this link and told me the missing piece. now, the lyrics is really complete! enjoy!

Devastated by SWAT Team

i saw you on a magazine
your dress was yellow
your hair was green
a magazine stand along Baclaran
saw you, was mesmerized by your appearance

do you still remember when we're still together
i didn't expect that you'll become a star
i even laughed at you
you even called me a fool
you're not that beautiful before
however now....

hey!

your smile is different
your looks are different
how come you underwent this metamorphosis
let's hope that no one saw it
so problems won't come with it
for i'm experiencing this poverty
to purchase... oooohhhoohhh
to purchase your beautiful face... =p

maybe right now you have your own auto
blazing... on a stage
your dress was made by Sotto
'suppose now.. you're already signing
for the supermodel of the whole wide universe
'cause now!

your smile is different
your looks are different
how come you underwent this metamorphosis
let's just hope no one saw it
so problems won't come with it
'cause i'm experiencing this poverty

(ad-lib)

i saw you on a magazine
and suddenly i realized it was R18!!
the title was obscene

to my hurry, I've seen (This weary part was cleared by JOJI himself, thanks tol)
and so my eyes were opened to reality
hey!

your smile is different
your looks are different
how come you underwent this metamorphosis
let's just hope no one saw it
so problems won't come with it
'cause i'm experiencing this poverty

your smile is different
your looks are different
how come you underwent this metamorphosis
let's just hope no one saw it
so problems won't come with it
for i'm experiencing this poverty
to purchase... oooohhhoohhh
to purchase your beautiful face... =p

i wonder where you are
i just hope you're happy
and in the coming issue
the centerfold is you... youohhhhhhhhhhhh
ooooooohhhhhhhhhh (LMAO)


PANGALANAN ANG MGA SALARIN
The SWAT Team (Let's name them all!)
SWAT - (Samahan ng mga Walang Alam sa Test)
formed in Highschool, remained to be true 'till college...

Now let's start naming those people behind that dirty old video ( LOL ).

Jose Marie (Pags) Pagkanlungan
He was the major vocalist of this song (LOL)
also the bassist on the video where there was a band
he was also the major contributor to the wicked lyrics of the song... bright ideas ehh??


Francis Rendell (Frankie) Pulanco
this guy is the one who owns the house
beside the driveway where they made their sloppy dance moves
I forgot who choreographed that, I think it's Noy
This guy is also the drummer at the video where they were posing as a band -- although he really is a drummer


Joji Kaneko
This guy is kind of a director of some of the corny scenes you've just seen


Marc Allan Reyes
he was the vendor of the magazine at the "magazine stand"
he was the one responsible for breaking the monoblock armchair
that he threw at the end of the video


Joselito Antonio (Noy) Barcelona
I think he's the leader of the whole dance craze thing as far as I can remember
he also sang a portion of the last chorus


Ronell Ong
 can you believe this guy? he never really did show up those times when we made the video,
recording and editing stuffs.... but he was surely visible at the video!!!
what we did was we let Noy edit his solo photo, turned his hair long and green, his shirt yellow, and pasted him at the bottom right corner of the magazine.


Jerimiah Emmanuel (Jero) Sese
This was the person who posted the video at youtube. I can't really remember who did all the editing. well, hopefully you'll recognize them when you watch the videos again.

--------------------
By the way, I just sneaked up on my classmate's multiply site and grabbed these photos... the last one (jero's photo) I stole it from his friendster account (LMAO)

I really do hope they forgive me for this!! Well Good luck guys!
Thank You for your kind unsolicited support

_______________
(Pahabol) P.S.
For me, these guys did a very good job. They've submitted on time even if we did this one or two days before submission. They've got a really high grade. These guys, (okay, let's admit it...) we were only amateur students at that time. We only used trial version of Pinnacle Studios. They only even used Windows Movie Maker to edit and record the song itself. Can you imagine that? It's like way below stone age... But I'm proud of these guys, and it really sucks whenever I search for these tags again on the internet and then I find posers taking credits for my friends' video.

For those people who likes the video, thank you... We appreciate how you appreciate our work, but please don't take it as if it is your own. Don't label it with your own names, you don't even look like the original crew who made this video (or not, i hope not *lol*).

For those of you who have outrageous comments, thank you... we enjoy your criticism, especially me haha. keep it up!

*kahit ganyan yang project na yan, pinaghirapan nila yan*
