Boys Like Girls are on a great escape to the Queen City of the South!
From Boston to Cebu, our pop punk stalwarts are looking forward to share the stage and blow the 032 away with live performances of their hits. That’s why we asked some of Cebu’s hometown heroes to share their fave tracks from Boys Like Girls and hype the excitement cause Martin Johnson and the gang are heading down to their beloved sunny city.
KARL LUCENTE, MANDAUE NIGHTS
“Hero / Heroine”. This is most likely my favorite Boys Like Girls track coming from their debut album. There’s something about the simplicity of the arrangement and the melody that really hooked me from start to finish. It’s a perfect highschool-emo-soundtrack and easy to cover on a guitar. Listening to it now brings a lot of memories!
ICY ANG, THE SEPIA TIMES
I love the first album as a whole because it was one of the soundtracks of my childhood, but “Broken Man” is one of my favorite songs from it. The bridge just gets me hyped up every single time and it’s a good song to scream the words to.
KEN CUIZON, SHUFFLED
I really like “The Great Escape”. Whenever I play it, it feels like 2007 and fun. Nostalgic and a certified classic. A perfect song for a road trip.
VINCENT JAMES ECO, THE SUNDOWN
My favorite songs are “Thunder”, “The Great Escape”, “Hero/Heroine”, “Heels Over Head”f because of their lively hooks and they defined my youth from highschool to college.
Mines “Five Minutes To Midnight”, cause it perfectly captures that mid 2000’s pop punk sound and energy. Palm muted guitars, lyrics like they were pulled out of thunder and an anthemic high pitched chorus
