Ogie Alcasid likens listening to painful songs to drinking coffee


010917-Ogie_PUSH.jpgOn Gandang Gabi Vice, Kapamilya singers Gary Valenciano and Ogie Alcasid were asked how they make painful songs even when they are not sad themselves.

Gary admitted that he cannot do that. “Hindi ko kaya, kailangan nandun ako or kailangan isipin ko kung ano yung pinagdadaanan, halimbawa ng mga friends ko. I have to feel it e.”

Meanwhile, Ogie answered in a roundabout way. He said, “Lahat na masasakit na kanta yan ang gusto ng mga tao. Sabi ko nga parang mainit na kape yan e. Yung kape pag hinigop mo mapapaso ka, mapait. Pero kahit papano pag hinigop mo may ginhawa so ganun ang nararamdaman mo kapag nakakarinig ka ng awiting masakit parang meron kang outlet parang ganun.”

Gary then asked host Vice Ganda, “Bakit ang taong bayan mas gusto nila yung makadamdaming mga kanta?” Vice answered, “Kasi sa kabila ng pagtawa ng mga tao habang tumatawa tayo ay talaga namang may kalungkutan. Kaya kahit tumatawa ka ngayon makarinig ka lang ng malungkot na kanta iiyak ka ulit kasi babalik ka sa totoo, kasi may lungkot kang nadadama.”
