BAKLA MET GAYAM TI LOKO....

What are the things that piss you off? Or the better question is who are the people that piss you off?

For me, there are people that really piss me off whenever I remember them or see them along Plaza Maestro or just along the streets.. but, I’d rather not talk about them here in my blog coz it would be libelous.. and I am not ready for that especially going to the jail…but there is a song that whenever played over our neighbor’s radio or sung by some people with their creepy voice makes me sick!! I simply don’t like the arrangement, melody and most of all, the lyrics of the song!!! The song I am particularly talking about is an ilokano song entitled “ BAKLA MET GAYAM TI LOKO”.. the song goes this way…


BAKLA MET GAYAM TI LOKO




napa nak man nagpal palla-ilang jay igid ti baybay

maawisak ang mangbuya't dalluyon aparnwayen ti taaw

mariknak man pul-oy ti angin agkalalamiisan

intugaw ko iti kadaratan pam-rya ah tangaden ti law-an

timmakderak ta adda mapasungad ko lalaki ah gwapo

inurnos ko buok ken takder ko bareng nu maki amamu

idin ta asideg ket inisemak ngem dinak inkasanu

pinagkitak lattan ti insurot ko ilalabas na ti batug ko




kursunadak man ti taraki na..

kasla ti artista ti langa na

kataytayag na ni goma, kallit na kasla ken aga

mainluv nak sa metten

ta detuy pusok agpitik unayen

jak inggaan ket innak suruten, nagan na ti innak amwen




jak sinayang ti oras ko ken kanito ket kinamakam ko

jak nagbain ket sinaludsud ko "anya ti nagan mo"??

naklaat tak idin ta agsao ay katimtimek ko

insungbat na, “apayya? Aniat ibagam? Siak ti badinggerzi sister.

Istorbo ka ti panagbiag ko… che!”




Kasla nakanyon ti barukong ko

Saggaysan sa payen panaganges ko

Jak lang koman nakiaammo

Bakla met gayam ti loko

Guwapo ket mapagtalkan

Ken siak ton maadalan

Uray nataraki wenno namacho

Nu bakla met a manglimlimo

Uray nataraki wenno namacho

Nu bakla met gayam gayyem ko

Uray nataraki wenno namacho

bakla met gayam ti loko….










This popular song became a household themesong of the corny people here more than 2 years ago wherein novelty type of songs reign.. and I still think it is still popular.. that whenever it is played on the awful am radio stations here, people from 5-50 years old sings the song. Even my pupils sing it in our school.. well, you cant blame them because they hear that song a million times over the radio.. and it has a catchy lyrics I guess… now, why does this song makes me sick?

Simply, this song degrades the morality of the gay community… in this society where some puritanicals and self-righteous people think that being true to yourself and being gay is a sin, having that song played over the radio is like putting a salt in a wound. What I’m trying to say is that let’s be fair to them. Afterall, they are human beings also. Also, it makes me feel sick to hear the way it was sung… if the great Simon Cowell would hear the song, perhaps his comment would be like this: “Oh my God! You don’t have a beautiful voice, you seriously murdered that song, its awful, boring, whiny, creepy, absolutely dreadful, terrible, torture, horrible, hideous, Dolly Parton on a helium, stupid, corny, disturbing, ferocious, disaster, lunatic, robotic, not great, pure karaoke, over the place, painful, an annoying girl singing in the bedroom, notes all over the place. To top of it all: it is exactly identical with my nightmare!”




Lesson learned from the song?... nothing… I simply don’t understand it.. I did not bother to translate it. It is not worth of my precious time. Jak maawatan. This is just my opinion and I am entitled to it.




Postscript: my sincerest thanks to Les for the lyrics… thanks a lot my dear friend.

This song keeps me laugh, whenever I here it in a radio, specially in 97.1 wls fm, they keep on playing this song every morning and when I hear this song, I felt very happy and alive, laughing while on my way going to work.. haha!! , the song was very full of humor and I think the composer of this song has abundant creativity switch, who ever you are, all I can say is, this song is "AWESOME!!", please continue composing songs that made people laugh so they can forget sad things that is happening to their lives even for a moment. Keep it up!
