Ely Buendia, the legendary singer-songwriter in the iconic band Eraserheads, has just broken hearts of fans all around the world of social media.
In one of the band’s popular songs Ligaya, he sings:
“Gagawin ko ang lahat pati ang thesis mo, ‘wag mo lang ipagkait ang hinahanap ko”
Which is one of the most iconic lyrics in Philippine OPM history because if you’ve already done your thesis, you’ll understand the dragging weight of that line.
And then he tweets this
Eh sariling thesis ko nga di ko magawa-gawa sa’yo pa.— Ely Buendia (@elybuendia9001) April 2, 2016
And it broke the hearts of fans
“@elybuendia9001: Eh sariling thesis ko nga di ko magawa-gawa sa’yo pa.” Ely, sinabe mo ikaw gagawa ng thesis nya eh. ??— Toyang (@elybumbilya) April 2, 2016
@elybuendia9001 pambihira. kaya pa man din kita sinagot tas ganto?— eleandre (@day3pper) April 2, 2016
It was just a lie
@elybuendia9001 so that "gagawin ko ang lahat pati ang thesis mo" line was a lie HAHAHAHAHA— Manahunk (@RekrekManahan) April 2, 2016
What about everything that makes that song solid
@elybuendia9001 eh paano na po yung "gagawin ko ang lahat pati ang thesis mo"?— Jellyan (@jillianbueno_) April 2, 2016
Another fan said it was just something Ely said back in the day
“@elybuendia9001: Eh sariling thesis ko nga di ko magawa-gawa sa’yo pa.” Oh, the follies of youth. Bawian ng statements said in kabataan? ✅— Chesca (@ch35c4) April 2, 2016
To get with Ligaya
@elybuendia9001 guys, di nyo ba gets? Kaya nya sinabi yun, para mapa-oo lang nya si Ligaya. Hehe the things that you say when you make ligaw— Gem TS (@groovygemie) April 2, 2016
But maybe Ligaya didn’t let him, and now the bitter history remains
No more Ligaya
Or could this be the start of a Ligaya part 2 song?
@elybuendia9001 HAHAHAHA pwede maging lyrics sa Ligaya Part 2— Keith Randal Segovia (@bizkit_segovia) April 2, 2016
We don’t know fam, but making a thesis is hard work and making another person’s thesis may just be too much
But it’s okay for some, just cheer them up, Ely!
@elybuendia9001 malapit na defense ng thesis ko, Kahit di mo na gawin just cheer me up! it's more than enough??— angelica sapiandante (@angelicasap) April 2, 2016
