Give an opm song
Discribe the rhythm of the songs.How does it influence the emotional impact of the song?
There’s a word in Tagalog, the national language of the Philippines, that specifically means to yank or pull out, as in pulling a powerful emotion from deep inside. That word, hugot, expresses a sentiment at the heart of so many OPM love songs. If it makes you swoon, if it makes you want to get up and sing, then it’s a ballad for the ages. “It’s coming from the gut,” explains Isidora Miranda, a PhD candidate studying the history of Filipino music at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. “It has that hugot feel. It really evokes some very deep emotion for the listener.”
Filipino pop music, otherwise known as Original Pilipino Music or OPM, refers broadly to the pop music that first emerged in the Philippines in the early ’70s and has since come to dominate radio airplay and karaoke playlists in the Filipino market and beyond. On Spotify, OPM has reached 10 billion streams, with listeners in the Philippines as well as in the immigrant communities of Singapore, the United States, and Hong Kong.
