|Ang Big Hair…*bow*! ACK. 😀 | 1992|
The above photo was my very first ‘glamour shot’ for a newspaper article they were going to write about me. It was a feature on the San Miguel Beer Ad’s Centennial Jingle – 100 Years of San Mig – which featured the late great Fernando Poe Jr. as the hero on a horse. I got to sing the jingle. I don’t have a recording of it. Sayang.
Anywoohoo, the song for Throwback Thursday is a (not so) old one from 1996. I got to record this pop OPM for my debut self-titled album, Chiqui Pineda. It was written by dear friend, mentor and record producer Mr. Vehnee Saturno and his brother Freddie Saturno. Vehnee is one of the reasons I was able to break into the recording world back in Manila in the early 90s and I owe him so much of my earlier success. Salamat, Kuya Vehn!
As most romantic and senti Pinoys know, the one song from my first album, How Did You Know – composed by Ms Cecile Azarcon Inocentes – went on to become a huge hit.
This song I’m sharing with you didn’t get to see the light of day much. Or so I thought. A few years later, a powerful singer named Jaya re-recorded her own version and it became her very first big hit.
The rest is history. Here is Tanging Ikaw, written by Freddie and Vehnee Saturno and sung by the original singer…me! 😉
