During the bloggers conference of Star Cinema and Viva Films’ The BreakUp Playlist, stars Sarah Geronimo and Piolo Pascual revealed, at different points in the conference, the songs of their lives.
If Piolo’s breakup song is U2’s “All I Want is You,” Sarah said that her breakup song is “The Scientist” by Coldplay. “Kapag naririnig ko ‘yun, talagang ano eh, nararamdaman ko po ulit yung sakit,” she said, adding that the song is really sad.
Speaking of sad songs, Sarah and Piolo were also asked about the songs that make them melancholic. Sarah answered Judy Garland’s “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” and even sang a few lines before adding, “Kasi di ba, we live in a world na akala ko perpekto lahat, di ba? Parang yung sa surface niya, akala mo perpekto lahat, especially ‘yung show business di ba? Parang ang gaganda lahat, ang saya saya lagi, kailangan lagi kang nakangiti… Hindi pwede kang magalit, hindi ka pu-pwedeng mapagod, di ba po? Pero ang realidad ng buhay, kami din po, pinagdadaaanan din namin ‘yung struggle na ‘yung pagkakataon na malungkot kami pero dahil may kaharap kaming audience, kailangan naming i-entertain sila, kailangan namin silang i-please. At saka hindi lang din yun sa trabaho kasi part na rin naman ‘yun ng pinili naming trabaho so kailangan prepared kami para dun.”
Reiterating “Somewhere Over The Rainbow,” she said that in this world, people have may complaints. “Bakit ganito ako? Ang daming complaints, di ba? Bakit ko pinagdadaanan ‘to? Hindi ba pwedeng maging blue bird na lang ako na talagang free at masaya everyday, walang pinagdadaanan.”
Piolo, on the other hand, said that the band, Coldplay sets him in the mood.
Meanwhile, they were asked about the songs that they listen to while doing the film. Sharing that they have a lot of songs in the movie, Piolo said that he likes Eraserheads’ “With A Smile” the best. He also mentioned that Yeng Constantino co-composed their movie’s theme song which he and Sarah sang, “Paano Ba Ang Magmahal.”
Later, they were asked, “If your life is a song, what is it?” Sarah replied, “’Yung ‘The Greatest Love of All,’ gustong gusto ko ‘yung last line doon eh,” and sang her favorite lines. “’Yung love na ‘yun, ‘yun ‘yung love na nangggaling sa Diyos at saka nanggagaling sa pamilya mo, di ba?” she said, adding that sometimes, we have dreams that we thought could make us happy and complete after we fulfill them but don’t.
She then shared her other life song which is Miley Cyrus’s “The Climb.” “It talks about ‘yung faith ko sa Diyos at saka ‘yung paniniwala ko sa sarili ko kasi kahit na nakarating na kami sa ganitong estado… May mga pagkakataon pa rin na tinatanong ko ang sarili ko, do I deserve this? Hindi, hindi ko dinedeserve lahat ng ‘to. Ang dami ko pang kailangan mapatunayan, ang daming nagsasabi na hindi ko dinedeserve ‘to pero kailangan lang na tuloy-tuloy lang ‘yung climb mo. Basta kasama mo ‘yung Panginoon at saka ‘yung pamilya mo, supporters mo, tuloy lang,” she said.
Piolo, on the other hand, admitted that he could not think of a life theme song at the moment.
