8 Sugarfree Songs
that Have Become
Our Life’s Anthems
By Tynne De Leon
Sometime in the early 2000s when the internet hasn’t spawned social media accounts yet and music is mostly our emotional refuge, there was Sugarfree.
It was 15 years ago when they released their debut album, “Sa Wakas”, a collection of crazy catchy songs that eventually became OPM classics. Their songs became a reminder of the bittersweet memories of our youth—from when we got our hearts broken to when we finally got over it.
Ready for some feels trip? Let’s revisit these songs that helped us get through hard times and eventually became part of our lives:
8. Makita Kang Muli
A classic favorite, “Makita Kang Muli” was all over the radio back then thanks to its exposure to the ABS-CBN TV series, Panday. Its lyrics are almost confessionals, and they hit right to the heart. No wonder it’s also the theme song of couples during that time.
7. Huwag Ka Nang Umiyak
Before the Ang Probinsyano revivals, “Huwag Ka Nang Umiyak” was a simple Sugarfree song that topped MYX charts before. A song full of hope and positivity, it spreads the message of love and belongingness, that’s why most Christian churches also use it as a worship song.
6. Hari Ng Sablay
Failures felt less heavy, thanks to this Sugarfree song. “Hari ng Sablay” has that very Pinoy vibe, the kind of song that makes you jump and headbang during gigs. Play it again live, please?
“Cuida” is a love letter laid out in a song, with a melody that is so beautiful, it will make you feel emotional. I mean, how can a song be sad and hopeful at the same time?
