    top 3 Francis M. songs

    I got this idea from Yahoo! answers.

    As a tribute to the man equally known as "Master Rapper", Man from Manila, "FrancisM", "Freeman", etc., why not post his songs that made a positive impact to you?

    Let me start the ball rolling.

    1. Kaleidoscope World - The impressive lyrics and guitar solo in the end made this one of the best OPM songs ever.

    2. Mga kababayan ko - This was Francis M.'s very first hit and equally impressive lyrics-wise.

    3. Three Stars and a Sun - Ang galing!

    honorable mention:
    Ito ang gusto ko
    Cold Summer Nights
    Beam me up Scottie/Kimo's groove ;D

    I'm really amazed not only by his ability to write lyrics which promote patriotism and social awareness without sounding "baduy" but also by the fact that he is highly respected by both the rock and hiphop industry.

    what cemented francisM's musical legacy was his successful fusion of hip-hop and rock in the local scene, no doubt made possible by run DMC's groundbreaking "walk this way." in the process, pinagbati nya yung mga dating nagbabangayan sa 105.9. para sa akin, mas pulido pa yung mga rap-rock works ni francis magalona kesa sa gawa ng mga bandang banyaga kagaya na rage against the machine, system of a down, linkin park, at limp bizkit (??!?). when you come down to it, it's his musical adventurousness that set him apart from his peers and later opened new directions for artists like, for instance, raimund marasigan to break out and achieve their own musical vision. he was to the pinoy music scene what former blur frontman damon albarn is now to britpop.

    in no particular order, here's my list:

    1. meron akong ano
    2. cold summer nights
    3. loving you baby

    nabanggit na kasi yung iba, kaya di ko na inulit.

    His collaboration with Greyhoundz and Gloc-9 in the song "Koro" is another example of his excellence as a songwriter.
