Rico Blanco – Yugto
April 3, 2011Posted by on
I didn’t like Rico Blanco’s Yugto when I first heard it a few years back. In recent weeks, however, I’ve developed a certain fondness for the song in those 20 minute walks from my office to the MRT station.
In my pre-training visualizations, Yugto is the perfect soundtrack. The line “lumiyab ka” (loosely translated, this means “keep the fires of passion burning”) is an apt by-line for my much-delayed comeback. “Saksi ang langit sa ikalawang yugto” (heaven is witness to the second chapter) is an even more straightforward depiction of what I’m going through. After my ignominious exit in UAAP 70, I’m on to the second chapter of my track career.
