Sometimes I wonder, is it the end of the world yet?

I like music, and it could cover a wide range of genre. Depending on the mood, my taste for music could touch on country, rock, punk, pop, blues, hiphop, jazz, R&B, even classical and religious music. But most often, really, my mood leans toward being a little melodramatic.

Love songs are usually written and/or dedicated to a special someone, a parent, a child, a friend — just anyone close to your heart, someone you like the most, but NOT, really, not someone you should hate like the least.

And yet, the latter is the theme of the song, “Kunin Mo Na Ang Lahat Sa Akin”, originally by Jeremiah and recently revived by Angeline Quinto for the ABS-CBN program “Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin”.

This music video alone has already garnered 1.5 million views and 2 thousand likes on Youtube.

Essentially, the song is about imploring a rival to bequeath your beloved to you.

Now, how sweet is that? How romantic? Pouring all your energy, your passion, creating a song for someone you should hate like the least, your rival, who poses an eminent threat to your happiness, and even singing heartily at it, pleading him or her to love someone else instead. And you call it a love song.

Such an awfully constructed love song!
