Lupang Hinirang version of Joey Ayala


This version of our national anthem arranged by the legendary composer/folk singer Joey Ayala should be something to ponder about. Considering that  the original marching style is quite old and need some makeover.

What I like about Joey’s version is that the lyrics are pronounced correctly, the melody is more touching like its coming from the heart when you sing it.

Though I’m ok with the old lyrics of “Ang mamatay ng dahil sa’yo” coz I think it symbolizes us to be patriotic and at the same time depicts love, because you wouldn’t wanna die for someone you don’t love, don’t you?
