Last Friday, August 3, on Magandang Buhay, Ogie Alcasid revealed that the inspiration of his original song ‘Pangarap Ko Ang Ibigin Ka’ was his wife Regine Velasquez whom he secretly got a crush on during that time.
“(Noong) una niyang pelikula, kasama niya si Christopher de Leon, eh may nararamdaman na ko kay Regine (Velasquez).”
Ogie recalled the time when Regine approached her and requested him to write a song for her new movie. “Sabi niya, ‘Gawa mo ko isa (pang kanta).’Ano ba yung kwento (ng pelikula)?’ ‘Wala lang gustong-gusto ko lang siya.’ So inisip ko yung feelings ko sa kanya.”
“Yung sinusulat ko ‘yung verse, sabi ko, parang ‘pag kausap ko kasi si Regine, nagku-kwento ako pero parang ‘di ko siya naririnig.
“So kaya ang sabi ko (sa kanta), ‘Tuwing ikaw ay nariyan, sabay kong nadarama ang kaba at ligaya. Ang iyong tinig wari’y di ko marinig, pagka’t namamangha kapag kausap ka.’ Ogie explained, making the hosts and the audience kilig.
