Song Feature: Parang Tayo Pero Hindi – Angeline Quinto and Michael Pangilinan (Himig Handog P-Pop Love Songs 2016)

Himig Handog P-Pop Love Songs will not be complete without an entry that delves into the ambiguity of a relationship and the highs and lows of a love that two people are unable to put a label on.

The song talks about two people who are more than friends but are not lovers. Yes, we’ve heard this one before, but Marlon’s simple lyrics put the question out there and forces the people involved in defining what they have.

Michael Pangilinan and Angeline Quinto are tasked in interpreting the song and they did not disappoint. It’s refreshing to hear Michael shed a bit of his R&B stylings and approached the song with a more balladeer sensibility. Angeline, on her part is always reliable in delivering emotive vocals reminiscent of her version of “Kunin Mo Na Ang Lahat Sa Akin.” Both singers managed to minimize their signature vocals, Michael with his R&B flair, and Angeline with her powerful belts, but still able to put the right emotion of two people trying to make sense of navigating the complexities of building a relationship and making it official.
