The Company, Muntik na Kitang Minahal

May 31, 2008

I decided I should start with my personal favourite from that brilliant group hailing from me alma mater (nope not Eraserheads.) Haunting the OPM music scene for more than 20 years, they’ve grown old but their songs have proved to be nothing but timeless. This bittersweet piece has been covered by many artists (Erik Santos, Aiza Seguerra, Carol Banawa), and the company itself even produced two versions. However the appeal lies in the simple lyrics and soothing melody.

My friend once told me that this song aptly describes one of the tragedies of budding relationships, and proves (this friend is a man) how silly some girls could be. Here’s a link to the song


Muntik na Kitang Minahal

Music and Lyrics by: The Company

May sikreto ako
Sasabihin sa’yo
Mayroong nangyaring hindi mo alam
Ito’y isang lihim itinagong kay tagal
Muntik na kitang minahal

I have a secret I wish to tell
Something happened that you never found out
It’s a secret I’ve hidden for a very long time…
I almost loved you ***
