OPM Songs To Wash Your Hands To

“Naghugas ka na ba ng kamay mo?!”

(Have you washed your hands?)

We all grew up with Filipino moms who would constantly ask us about our cleanliness and yet here we are, the year 2020, with handwashing and sanitizing suddenly becoming the “new” thing.

Many health organizations are reminding us to scrub our hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds to properly lift dirt, grease, and microbes from the skin.

But where’s the fun in merely counting to 20?

 Most suggest singing Happy Birthday or other English songs as you wash your hands. But since we are “Pinoy Talaga,” Louie da Costa asked on her show Tag Break Na- what are some of your favorite or fun OPM songs with a verse or chorus that you could sing to for approximately 20 seconds, as you wash your hands?

Here are some of the suggestions:


KALEIDOSCOPE WORLD by Francis Magalona


“Every color and every hue
Is represented by me and you
Take a slide in the slope
Take a look in the kaleidoscope
Spinnin' round, make it twirl
In this kaleidoscope world”



PARE KO by Eraserheads



“Pare ko meron akong problema
Wag mong sabihing na naman
In love ako sa isang kolehiyala
Hindi ko maintindihan”



COOL KA LANG by Prettier Than Pink

“Problema'y lilipas na lang
Kaya't cool ka lang cool ka lang
Bakit ba palagi ka na lang ganyan
Cool ka lang cool ka lang
Daanin mo sa galit noo'y kukunat lang”



HAWAK KAMAY by Yeng Constantino 



Di kita iiwan sa paglakbay
Dito sa mundong walang katiyakan
Di kita bibitawan sa paglalakbay
Sa mundo ng kawalan



BONGGA KA DAY  by Hotdog



Bongga ka day (bongga)
Bongga ka day (bongga)
Sige lang sige lang itaas ang kilay
Bongga ka day (bongga)
Bongga ka day (bongga)
Sige lang sige lang itaas ang kilay

Hala hala hala hala (ah)”



HARANA by Parokya Ni Edgar

Uso pa ba ang harana?
Marahil ikaw ay nagtataka
Sino ba 'tong mukhang gago?
Nagkandarapa sa pagkanta
At nasisintunado sa kaba”



BULAKLAK by Viva Hot Babes



Ang bango-bango ang bango-bango
Ang bango-bango ng bulaklak
'Pag inaamoy 'pag inaamoy
'Pag inaamoy anong sarap
Ang bango-bango ang sarap-sarap
Amuyin ang bulaklak”



HANGGANG by Wency Cornejo



“Giliw wag mo sanang isiping
Ikaw ay aking lilisanin
Di ko magagawang
Lumayo sayong piling
At nais kong malaman mo
Kung gaano kita kamahal”






“Sa umaga't sa gabi
Sa bawa't minutong lumilipas
Hinahanap-hanap kita
Hinahanap-hanap kita
Sa isip at panaginip
Bawat pagpihit ng tadhana
Hinahanap-hanap kita”







“Guess what, you know last night
Yo, it was the best
I met a pretty girlie na taga-IS
Mayro'n siyang mga kasama, four to make it sure
Isa lang ang aking napuna, lahat sila demure
Kaya't ang sabi niya, "Hey Andrew
I would like you to meet my friends"
And believe me, lahay sila ay may Mercedez Benz”
