I've always had a thing for OPM. I am terrible at singing along since I can't really speak tagalog, but I really love the music. Imago's Sundo is an example of my own musical taste in OPM. When I hear this song I want to go on a road trip up PCH, stare at the ocean, and feel the wind in my hair. It's a song that reminds me of summer and being carefree.
I am a fan of booming, hard hitting bass in my music. It's the reason I loved deep house in high school. It's the reason why Warren G's records still are some of my favorites. When an emcee utilizes that sound I will instantly stop and listen. No Love does that for me. And the lyrics. Hot damn. Listen to what she's spittin at you. It's as Dylan said on Puff Daddy's Making the Band - Hot Fire!
This song tripped me out because of DJ Q-bert being featured on the track. Being married to Mike means I've learned quite a lot about djs through osmosis. When we first started dating it would quite normal for him to play Invisible Scratch Pickles vhs tapes in the background of us studying for class. The fact that I can remember the words "Invisible Scratch Pickles" is all due to him. When Bambu's Crosshairs came out I geeked out at DJ Q-bert being on the song. I'm a nerd. I blame Mike for this nerdy.
