Recently, I was at the Goldilocks in Robinson's and I was so shocked to hear a Chabacano song playing over a radio station in Manila. I later found out that a local band called Maldita had made it in the national music scene with it's hit song Porque.
In this post, I will list the Chabacano songs that I found in You Tube. This list is limited only to the modern Chabacano songs and which are (in my opinion) contemporary.
The first Chabacano song we are going to feature is Tiene Duenyo. It of course means that there is already an owner or that the singers heart already belongs to someone.
The second featured Chabacano songs is Tiene Vez. Tiene Vez is a Chabacano song which talks about the hardships of life and about not giving. As you can see, even though us (Chabacano speakers) pronounce it as chene, the original Spanish spelling is not yet lost to us.
Pakilaya is yet another Chabacano love song.
Para Con Ele is another nice Chabacano song which means For Him or For Her.
This romantic Chabacano song is titled Etu lang or Only You.
This one is a bit dark and is actually dedicated to the recent string of violence in the city.
And of course, shall we forget Maldita's Porque? This is undoubtedly one of the most popular Chabacano songs in the country today. To see the lyrics of Porque, click here.
Here is a Chabacano song contributed by an anonymous commenter. It is a happy love song.
Here is another one, this time it is an R &B song. It was contributed by one of our commenters.
