  1. Para sa yo yan. Pero para sa akin, 90s and 2000s pa rin ang golden age ng OPM. Tipong hanggang ngayon, relevant pa rin ang mga kanta. Nasasabayan pa rin ng marami. Iba-iba ang tunog, yet very relatable and memorable.

    1. Ang pinagmumulan ng perpective nya ay bilang artist nung nineties. Ang perspective nyo ay bilang listener lang pero di nyo alam talaga ang mga pinagdaanan nila.

    2. Golden age ng OPM eh 70s hangang early 2000. Pinagsasabi niyang si Chito. As if naman eh na earn niya un na maging guru ng OPM. SUS

    3. Feel na feel nga ni Chito 1:46 na legend siya/sila kung sabihin niya na sila ng KMKZ ang oldies. Eh mas marami pang OPM bands ang oldies sa kanila.

    4. 11:13 - should encompass both aspects, as both variables are key aspects: the creators and the consumers.

    5. 70's ang golden age ng opm. Kasi dun sumikat sa ibang bansa mga kanta natin. Sadly , naiwanan na tayo sa Asia because of kpop and jpop.

    6. Mas buhay yung OPM nung 90s. Especially Eraserheads. Kita naman sa concerts kahit mahal tickets, napupuno at kung gano ka enthusiastic mga tao. Mas marami nakikinig sa opm na pinoy in all walks of life non. ngayon mas less na class A & B na nakikinig ng OPM.

      Delete
    7. 10:13 wrong. Its not entirely fault ng kpop/jpop. Its fault of the Ph industry itself. Walang katapusan na pagrevive, pagcover, and singer singeran sa pinas. Nawala tlga ng quality and quantity ang kanta ng pinas. Kaya nga naghanap ng iba ang mga pinoy because of this.

      Delete
    8. 1:13 ang perspective nya ay ang process, ang perspective naming naniniwala na 90s ang golden age ng opm ay ang output. meaning sya ay yung music-making, kami yung music itself

      Delete
  2. Disagree. Mas maganda pa rin tunog ng 90s. Yung mga artists may work ethics. And pure talent. Di pa uso ang auto tune.

    1. Marami ng padiva at unproffesional noon. Hindi pa lang uso ang socmed at blogs tulad nitong FP kaya mas kontrolado ng mga networks at mga managers at mga lumalabas ng issues sa mga artista at mas protektado nila ang mga yan.

    2. 1:09 but the talent and iconic songs from that time are undeniable,

    3. Gen z ako pero mas gusto ko yung tunog 90s kakaiba sa lahat. May sariling vibe. Medyo dark.

    4. Before, we ‘“listen” to music.

      Now, we “watch” music.

      Noon, lyrics, melody, rhythm sapat na.

      Ngayon, hindi. Dapat pasabog ang music video. It has to be cutesy. It has to be edgy. It has to be dramatic. It has to be hot and smoking. It has to be controversial.

      Delete
    5. 1:09 irrelevant yung pag uugali nila kasi music ang usapan.

      Delete
    6. 8:29 huh? no we don't "watch" music. hindi po lahat ng music ay may mv. ano yun kung walang mv hindi mo na nadidinig? haha adik lang

  3. Not really. 90's until 2009 were the glory days of OPM.

  4. I think ang pinaparinggan nya dun sa para kaming mga second class citizen sa mga mainstream singers ay yung mga cover singers nung time na yun. Nauso kasi ang paglabas ng revival album nung nineties. Ang mga banda talaga ang bumuhay ng OPM nung nineties pero ngayon lang sila nabibigyan ng importansya.

    1. Si Regine ang isa sa unang naglabas ng revival album noong nineties yung Retro tapos sunod sunod na yung mga revival albums nya. Pati sila Martin Nievera, Gary Valenciano, Pops Fermandez, Lani Misalucha at iba pang mga mainstream singers puro cover songs at cover albums. Pag nanunod karin ng concert ng mga mainstream singers puro mga kanta ng foreign artist kinakanta nila sa mga concerts nila. Kaya nga nagtataka ako bakit mga OPM Icons mga tawag sa kanila eh puro lang naman sila covers ng mga kanta ng foreign singers.

      Delete
    2. Ay true mhie. Buti pa underground OPM rock may sarili silang mga kanta. Kahit nga OPM mainstream rock meron sariling mga kanta eh. Bakit sa mga OPM pop and ballad puro covers? Pop, ballad, and rnb pa naman madalas pakinggan ng mga normies (mga hindi nakikinig sa extreme music).

      Delete
    3. Si Regine ang Queen of Cover Songs.

      Delete
  5. Nope….90s and 2000s pa rin.Halos lahat magagaling.Yung mga banda pagalingan nung time na yun.

  6. Golden age siguro ng treatment para sa mga artists pero hindi ng quality ng music. Pare pareho na tunog meron lang ibang mga outliers na stand out

    ReplyDelete
  7. 70s to 80s was the True Golden Age of OPM!! But he has a very valid point!

    ReplyDelete
  8. Mga banda talaga ang isa sa mga bumuhay ng OPM nung nineties. Marami sa tinatawag ng so called OPM Icons ngayon na mga mainstream singers wala naman talaga karapatan tawaging mga OPM Icons dahil mga cover singers lang sila na dumedepende sa mga kanta ng mga foreign singers. Halimbawa diyan yung mga biritera nung nineties na pag may bagong song sila Whitney Mariah Celine etc yun lang din ang mga kinakanta nila sa mga shows at concerts nila.

  9. Yup agree. 90s to 2000s pa rin!!!

    1. Dont blame it to kpop dhil Ph industry mismo amg dahilan why many of us go/listen to kpop, jpop, uk, and us songs. Ph industy ang addict sa pagcover and revive ng mga kanta, especially ng foreign songs. Tpos gaggamitin pa ito ng paulit ulit as ost ng teleserye and ng movies. Kahit ung bagong release n kanta, meron n agad n cover and mlun pa ang mas pinapatugtog s tv and radyos. So sino p b ang gaganahan makinig ng pinoy songs?? Ako, nawalan n tlga ako ng gana sa pinoy industry in general.

  11. 80's to 90's for me...

    ReplyDelete
  12. Considered bang OPM yung mga basurang kanta nung mga influencers sa youtube? Kahit sino ngayon pwede na maglabas ng kanta kahit yung mga sintunado at mga walang sense ung lyrics haha. Dun sa sinabi nyang "artists and bands now don't need mainstream media and recoding companies" is ok para dun sa mga may talent talaga, pero dahil din jan, bumababa quality ng mga songs na lumalabas ngayon dahil nga kahit sino pwede maglabas ng kanta basta maraming followers.

  13. i know a lot of people are disagreeing with him and countering that another decade is better, but this is his point of view as an artist. he's not talking about music quality but how artists are treated, and i actually like how he's giving appreciation to the newer generations. unlike other artists who hate on newcomers, ang palaging sumbat "hindi niyo pinagdaanan ang pinagdaanan namin." when honestly, that should be seen as a good thing.

    let's just appreciate the improvements and milestones that have been achieved in the music industry and celebrate its contributors, both old and new.

  14. Cge nga Chito, enumerate the OPM songs that made you think na golden age ng OPM ngayon.

    Iba parin ang 90s sa true lang.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I disagree with Chito. 80s-2000s was the Golden age of OPM. Tong si Chito ewan ko ba

    ReplyDelete
  16. From an artist's perspective yung kanya. Creative, economic and technical facets, and more significantly, freedom. Laki ng role ng social media dito.

    ReplyDelete
  17. When we say OPM, all Pinoy genre kasi ang naiisip ko not just bands. So if you’re to ask me, Golden era talaga ang 90s kasi lahat ng Pinoy genre patok sa public eh. Walang tapon. Pero yung Manila Sound back in the 70s sobrang nagstart ng pagratsada ng OPM. So from 70s to 90s napakasaya maging OPM fan!

  18. Dahil ayaw nyang aminin na mas magaling ang eheads sa parokya πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  19. Wala nga ko bet sa mga bagong opm ngayon e. I tried liking the songs, tried playing it on repeat, wala talaga. In the end I just removed them from my playlist. Parang copycat songs lang lagi na walang dating. Even Moira, I only ever liked one song of hers yung Titibo-Tibo then waley na.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Golden age ng OPM was seventies to nineties. After nun naging puro covers na lang around 2000s to 2010s. Pero aminin natin maganda ang opm ngayon 2020s dahil andaming mga bagong artists na puros original unlike nung 2000 and 2010s mga artista na walang musicality ang mga may albums and concerts.

    1. Actually, as a batang 80's-90's, na love ang music scene nung time na yun, I would say na sobrang impressed din ako sa music ngayun, Ben & Ben, Nobita, Adie, Unique, Dilaw, Sunkissed Lola, Lola Amour, etc, sobrang gaganda ng songs nila. Di ko inexpect maappreciate ko sila at my age.

      Delete
    2. 11:15 nagulat din ako as a batang nineties na maraming magagaling na original. Salamat sa social media nakikilala sila. Kasi kung nineties yan laging mahirap sumikat kapag wala kang backer sa industry.

  21. I disagree, it is still the 70s,90s, and 2000s for me.

    ReplyDelete
  22. for me 70's Manila Sound up to 90's ang golden years ng OPM.. pano mo nasabi na today ang Golden era eh iilang singers lang ang nagkaka album tapos bihira pa mag gold certification kahit sobrang binababa na yung standards .

    ReplyDelete
  23. Para sa tinatamad magbasa πŸ˜„ ang point ni Chito is kahit maganda yung music noon, hindi gaano maganda yung industriya. OPM musicians were underpaid, undervalued, and not treated as well compared to now. At masaya siya na nag improve na ang kalagayan ng mga musikero ngayon. Yun lang yon.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Golden Age means the period when a specified art, skill, or activity is at its peak. So invalid pa din ang point niya if he's referring to being underpaid , undervalued, etc. Hindi ka nga tinamad magbasa, tinamad ka naman alamin kung anong ibig sabihin ng Golden Age. πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„

    2. 1:24 is it wrong to have comprehension? πŸ˜‚ E kasi iba na pinag aawayan ng mga tao dito, kesyo mas maganda pa din daw yung 90s to 2000s music e wala naman sinasabi tungkol don si chito. And he did not use the wrong term, he is just sharing from the perspective of a working musician instead of a fan. It is a golden age for Original Pinoy Musicians not because they make better music but because it is easier for them to thrive professionally.

      Delete
    3. ni-recap lang naman ni 11:27 ung sinabi (thanks hehe) pero agree ako kay 1:24, ang "golden age" is not a matter of perspective. looking back, golden age ang 90s +/- because of relevance and longevity. ngayon nga with the socmed hindi pa rin gaano natatak ang mga current songs, in the next decades pa kaya..? maybe need din iconsider yun when saying "golden age"

      Delete
  24. For me 80' and 90's were the golden era of OPM. 80's madaming sumikat na solo singer dyan na di bumibirit at pati mga kanta nila sumikat din. 90's golden era ng mga banda.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Nah, today's era of OPM will be easily forgotten. I'm pretty sure the songs from 70s, 80s, 90s, and early 2000s will still be played until the next generation. Di ko lang sure sa mga OPS songs ngayon. Hehe

    ReplyDelete
  26. Chito Miranda has a point naman. Grabe opm ngayon. Magagaling lahat. Buhay na buhay ang OPM. PPOP is rising too. Batang 90s ako but i do appreciate ang opm these days and even PPOP.

  27. it's the 70's to 90's to early pa rinπŸŽ΅πŸ’ž

  28. We as "ONLY LISTENERS" in the 90s bought your albums, bought your concert and small gig tickets, fought for you in small talks, bought magazine articles and song hits, chases your TV appearances and mall show performances, Listening, tuning in and requested to radio stations your singles helped more OPM singers reached their dreams.

    I hope these OPM artists can give back or at least remember that if it was not for the support of the FANS and LISTENERS? no matter how hard they strive, they won't be recognized and able to make it to the mainstream to reach where they are now.

    This is coming from a (once) fan's perspective.

  29. Para sa akin 90's - mid 2k's

  30. Hmm i would have yo disagree. Most of OPMs today naka sentro sa hugot, yung dapat may hugot. Unlike nuon.

    1. Or pwedeng both. Kasi 90's, era yan ng Eraserheads, Yano, AfterImage and Introvoys Color It Red, Side A, Hungry Young Poets/Barbie’s Cradle, True Faith, Parokya ni Edgar, Sandwich, Teeth, P.O.T.,Wolfgang, Rivermaya, Sugar Hiccup, Pu3ska. Wag mo naman iinvalidate yung ibang era.

    1. 6:00 it is still not considered as "golden age" dhil it is only called golden age kung:
      1. Napakalakas or strong ng monumentum, which the current decade didnt have that dahil mas nakasentro ang mga pinoy ngayon sa foreign music like Kpop, US/western etc.
      2. Super appreciated ang body of work ng nakakaraming artist which it also didnt have it dhil sa walang sawang pangkokopya, pagrerevive, and pagcocover ng kanta (especially foreign songs) ng paulit ulit. Ung mga composer,lyrist,singer, etc n masipag magbigay ng original songs ay laging under appreciated. Kapag nakagawa sila ng hit ay babayaran sila ng mga nsa mainstream music industry and ung kanta nila ay ipapacover sa artist under them which kung sino pa ang cover sya pa ang mas kumikita than the actual artist. Thia has been practice hanggang ngayon
      3. Yes madaling gumawa or magrelease ng kanta but ang mas tinatangkilik ng mga pinoy, ung mas kumikita pa ay kung ano pa ang makokonsidered na trashy or copycat or hugot songs.
      4. Hndi na umaabot sa platinum or super hit ang mga kanta ng mga pinoy ngayon which iyon nman tlga ang batayan to gave mark sa industry, sa artist, and sa decade. Madali kalimutan ang mga kanta ngayon dhil walang malakas n impact. So as an artist, u dont want to be easily forgotten. Unfortunately, un ang nagyayari sa mga artist ngayon.

      So u cant really blame commenters here on why we didnt agree with Chito's artist perspective dhil we cant see and justify n todays ay golden era. Super daling kalimutan ang mga kanta and artists ngayon

  33. 70's golden age era of "the Manila Sound"
    80's golden age era of OPM ballads
    90's golden age era of OPM alternative rock bands

    2000's OPM's downfall due cover (revival) songs

  34. OPM now, like our movies, is practically dead.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Walang dapat pagtalunan. OPM never died, syempre kung ano ang patok nung panahong yun ang tatangkilikin. Nagkataon lang na iba iba ang style depende sa era based na rin sa audience type at yung tech na ginagamit para makapagproduce ng music. Basta ang natatandaan ko lang noon, is 1) NU, 2) Andaming underrated bands 3) Skipping Parokya because of how basic and overrated your band is. Char.

  36. 80’s to 90’s opm songs hits hard. The lyrics are much relatable…

  37. 80's, 90's, 2000

    naku yan ang the best. kaya naman halos lahat ng kanta during this era, nirevive

    ReplyDelete
  38. 70”s ,80’s and 90’s was the Golden Age Chito! Nang nauso ang autotune at fan mode na mga recording artists kahit sino nalang na be retiring puro revival na kanta.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Ang harsh mo sa sarili mo. Ni wala nga new hit either ang PNE o kahit man lang mag solo ka. Hindi ka na patok.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Aah, I get what he meant. Kasi mga banda nuon were underpaid & treated as 2nd class citizens. Unlike these days, maganda na trato sa kanila, treated like real celebs and can release album anytime without worrying if it's radio-friendly or not.
    BUT still, I consider the 90's and yrs before were the REAL Age of OPM. Artists composed/created real music, don't do covers a lot at may sense or relatable yung kanta.
    These days paulit-ulit nlng yung message ng meaning, minsan naka autotune pa! Naging sikat pa yung iba dahil sa sobrang hype. Even my GenZ kid appreciates the 90's, 80' even 60's at 50's. Ayaw nila sa music nila ngayon cz parang walang originality na dw pakinggan. Mas maganda pa nga Indie music kesa mga mainstream ngayon.
