RORO MUSIC - BOHOL'S NEW INDIE MUSIC PROJECT

What is Roro Music?

Roro Music is a combination of two musical minds both of whom are true Dagohoy-blooded Boholanos. It's a collaboration founded on years of friendship, common life experience and shared interest but whose current musical quest and aspiration go beyond the limits and boundaries of some home-grown and culturally-embraced influences of the present time (pop culture), in pursuit of something new and unfamiliar, yet very special (we're going country!), in the hope of breaking new grounds (for future performing artists), creating fresh perspectives (for budding songwriters) and laying new platforms for many ipodcasters (modern music lovers) to enjoy, celebrate and tread on in the many years to come.

Musically yours,

Romeo C. Mascariñas & J. Roel Lungay

WHAT WE ARE ABOUT

Year 2009 is a trailblazing year for us as we embark on a new musical venture we've never tried before - collaborative songwriting and self-publishing. It's a dream we never dared explore in years past when our minds were clear, pure and innocent (LoL), and our imaginations, ambitions and dares were kinda at its peak (huh!). Even though we're both musicians who grew up - and played sports - together, and whose passion for music is beyond anyone's knowing and description, our respective musical journeys have never really crossed paths before except at informal and not-so-formal gatherings (e.g. barkada gatherings, music club gigs, etc) where one played and the other appreciated, in company of boyhood friends. Thirty something years, as a matter of fact, such life's arrangement seemed to be the soup du jour of a lifetime between us from years 1976 to 2008. Then 2009 came and all of a sudden, boom!(forgive us for sounding too cocky and ambitious, hahaha), like an old friend would like to say, an "ala-Lennon-McCartney/Bernie Taupin-Elton John" meeting of the minds and hearts almost instantaneously became the rule of the day and of our newfound fervor, writing songs together!

MISSING YOU

Words by J. Roel Lungay

Music by Romeo C. Mascariñas

Performed by Jennifer Ann Talisic

1
When you disappear
Never to come back
Quite some pourin’ tears
Did you ever think of that?

2
You made some enemies
They hate you oh so bad
What you gonna do,
Really hurt me bad?

Refrain:
Missing you, missing you, missing you
Really do, really do, really do
Please come home, please come home, do come home
I really need your love, oh yeah!

(Interlude)

3
Mind is getting tired,
Eyes are getting dry,
Heart is always sad,
Wishing you come back!

4
Oh, please don’t make it hard
Open up your heart
Hear to what I say
I’m waiting every day!

(Repeat Refrain)

Bridge:
I’m really reaching out to hold you, baby, yeah
It’s just a matter of time you’ll be mine
I’m begging you, I’m begging you
Promise me, please, don’t ever let go!

BIG BANG! (Video 1)

This is what Alyssa called the MEMENG VERSION



BIG BANG!

Words by J. Roel Lungay

Music by Romeo C. Mascariñas

Performed by Romeo! Romeo!

1
Wait 'til you hear from me
When I come to you
With a friend or two;
When I call your name
No, it’s not a game;
Take a real deep breath
Coz’ I’m aiming for you!

2
When you open that door
‘Til the sun’s no more
When I count to four
Yes, you’ll think I’m a fool.
When the moon comes out
And you hear me shout,
Yes, you’ll open your mouth
You won’t know what strike you out!

Chorus:
Big bang! Big bang!
Big bang! Big bang!
Let this night be the night!
Big bang! Big bang!
Big bang! Big bang!
What a sight for the eyes!

3
Like a kid at school
I’m all over you.
Everything’s a game
I don’t feel no pain.
When you see me frown
Take a hike or turn around.
Now if you see me smile
Everything is worth the while.

(Repeat Refrain)

(Interlude)

Bridge:
What a year it had been,
Like a roller-coaster train;
Life will never be the same
But never, never say again!

(Repeat Chorus then fade)

ROAD TO NOWHERE (Video 1)

The "Memeng Version" again, hahaha



ROAD TO NOWHERE

Words by J. Roel Lungay

Music by Romeo C. Mascariñas

Performed by Romeo! Romeo!

1
There’s a highway down the road
People trav‘ling, young and old
Which direction I don’t know but I was told
It’s called the road to nowhere.

2
There’s a dude in jet-black hair
With guitar and picking tunes
Where he came from no one knows but I was told
He came from road to nowhere.

Refrain:
There’s a road to nowhere
Many people standing there.
Road to nowhere,
I wanna do my dancing there;
Like a marketplace
It’s crowded and you can’t hear
It’s a road to nowhere
Really, road to nowhere.

(Interlude)

Bridge:
Down that road you can’t show your face,
Expect to be embraced.
I was told you are on your own
Or you can hit the road!

3
Love to travel down that road,
No return and no regrets,
Love to tell my kids one day when I am old
I’ve been to the road of nowhere.

(Repeat Refrain)

Coda:
Like a marketplace
It’s full of crowd, but then
It’s a road to nowhere.
Yeah, really road to nowhere.
Like a marketplace
It’s full of crowd, but then
It’s a road to nowhere.
You bet, it’s road to nowhere.

UNANSWERED PRAYER (AP Tribute)

Tribute to Arnel Pineda - Husband and Father




UNANSWERED PRAYERS

(Dedicated to Romy, wife and kids)

Words by J. Roel Lungay

Music by Romeo Mascariñas

Performed by Romeo! Romeo!

1
Last night I woke up in the middle of the night,
Thought of things that meant so much for me and my wife -
Children, school and house, livelihood and life.
I can’t stop thanking God for these unanswered prayers.

2
[When I was young/back then] my dreams were diff’rent
from what I have now.
I took a lot for granted, never cared so much;
Dreaming far away, I could never stay.
But now, I’m thankful, God, for these unanswered prayers.

Refrain 1:
[You/they] are the [answer/answers] to my unanswered prayers.
I swear to God [you/they] are my unanswered prayers;
I may not have known coz I was so young and alone
But now I realize you are the answer to my very prayers.

3
Funny but it seems like God had made plans all along.
Took a lot of twists and turns, had to let go of my own;
Funny it may seem, you know how lucky have I been
Now I have you all beside me - my unanswered prayers.

Bridge:
God, I can’t thank enough, you’re the Lord of my life.
Coz I owe you so much, I fall down on my knees;
I couldn’t bear the thought of it had you answered all my dreams
I wouldn’t have my wife and kids - your very answer to my unanswered prayers.

(Interlude)

(Repeat Refrain except last line)

Coda:
But now I realize you are the answer to my very prayers.

LOVE SOMEHOW WILL FIND A PLACE IN OUR HEARTS

Live overdub at the White House Studio

Engineer: Bob White

Words by J. Roel Lungay

Music and arrangement by Romeo Mascariñas

Performed by Stephanie White

1
There’s no telling where it’ll end
There’s no saying we’re just friends
All I can say right now is don’t say a word
Love somehow will find a place in our hearts.

2
I’m in no hurry I can wait
I’ll just tarry ’til it’s here
All I can do right now is not say a word
Love somehow will find a place in our hearts.

Chorus:
I know what love does for you
There’s not much explaining to do
Love somehow will tickle our hearts
And settle inside [that’s why/that‘s right].

The joy that you feel inside
Is much like taking you off for a ride
Love somehow will take its flight
In joining our hearts in love.

3
I can imagine what I feel
Yet I wonder, if it’s real
I’ll just close my eyes and not say a word
Love somehow will find a place in our hearts.

(Interlude)

(Chorus)

Coda:
I’ll just close my eyes and not say a word
Love somehow will find a place in our hearts.

WHAT WE ARE ABOUT

Year 2009 is a trailblazing year for us as we embark on a new musical venture we've never tried before - collaborative songwriting and self-publishing. It's a dream we never dared explore in years past when our minds were clear, pure and innocent (LoL), and our imaginations, ambitions and dares were kinda at its peak (huh!). Even though we're both musicians who grew up - and played sports - together, and whose passion for music is beyond anyone's knowing and description, our respective musical journeys have never really crossed paths before except at informal and not-so-formal gatherings (e.g. barkada gatherings, music club gigs, etc) where one played and the other appreciated, in company of boyhood friends. Thirty something years, as a matter of fact, such life's arrangement seemed to be the soup du jour of a lifetime between us from years 1976 to 2008. Then 2009 came and all of a sudden, boom!(forgive us for sounding too cocky and ambitious, hahaha), like an old friend would like to say, an "ala-Lennon-McCartney/Bernie Taupin-Elton John" meeting of the minds and hearts almost instantaneously became the rule of the day and of our newfound fervor, writing songs together!

WHAT IS RORO MUSIC?

Roro Music is a combination of two musical minds both of whom are true Dagohoy-blooded Boholanos. It's a collaboration founded on years of friendship, common life experience and shared interest but whose current musical quest and aspiration go beyond the limits and boundaries of some home-grown and culturally-embraced influences of the present time (pop culture), in pursuit of something new and unfamiliar, yet very special (we're going country!), in the hope of breaking new grounds (for future performing artists), creating fresh perspectives (for budding songwriters) and laying new platforms for many ipodcasters (modern music lovers) to enjoy, celebrate and tread on in the many years to come.

Fro's Take On Road To Nowhere (Audiophile)

Huh! Fro at the lobby of Hotel Intercontinental on Canal Street,
New Orleans?!! Bwahaha!!!


(Song below) Overdubbed at the White House Studio,Pearl River, Louisiana. Engineered by Bob White, studio owner

ROAD TO NOWHERE

Words by J. Roel Lungay

Music by Romeo Mascariñas

Performed by Father Roel a.k.a. Fro

1
There’s a highway down the road
People trav‘ling, young and old
Which direction I don’t know but I was told
It’s called the road to nowhere.

2
There’s a dude in jet-black hair
With guitar and picking tunes
Where he came from no one knows but I was told
He came from road to nowhere.

Refrain:
There’s a road to nowhere
Many people standing there.
Road to nowhere,
I wanna do my dancing there;
Like a marketplace
It’s crowded and you can’t hear
It’s a road to nowhere
Really, road to nowhere.

(Interlude)

Bridge:
Down that road you can’t show your face,
Expect to be embraced.
I was told you are on your own
Or you can hit the road!

3
Love to travel down that road,
No return and no regrets,
Love to tell my kids one day when I am old
I’ve been to the road of nowhere.

(Repeat Refrain)

Coda:
Like a marketplace
It’s full of crowd, but then
It’s a road to nowhere.
Yeah, really road to nowhere.
Like a marketplace
It’s full of crowd, but then
It’s a road to nowhere.
You bet, it's road to nowhere.

Performed by Romeo! Romeo!

1
There’s no telling where it’ll end
There’s no saying we’re just friends
All I can say right now is don’t say a word
Love somehow will find a place in our hearts.

2
I’m in no hurry I can wait
I’ll just tarry ’til it’s here
All I can do right now is not say a word
Love somehow will find a place in our hearts.

Chorus:
I know what love does for you
There’s not much explaining to do
Love somehow will tickle our hearts
And settle inside [that’s why/that‘s right].

The joy that you feel inside
Is much like taking you off for a ride
Love somehow will take its flight

UNANSWERED PRAYER (Audiophile)




UNANSWERED PRAYERS

(Dedicated to Romy, wife and kids)

Words by J. Roel Lungay

Music by Romeo Mascariñas

Performed by Romeo! Romeo!

1
Last night I woke up in the middle of the night,
Thought of things that meant so much for me and my wife -
Children, school and house, livelihood and life.
I can’t stop thanking God for these unanswered prayers.

2
[When I was young/Back then] my dreams were diff’rent
from what I have now.
I took a lot for granted, never cared so much;
Dreaming far away, I could never stay.
But now, I’m thankful, God, for these unanswered prayers.

Refrain:
[You/they] are the [answer/answers] to my unanswered prayers.
I swear to God [you/they] are my unanswered prayers;
I may not have known coz I was so young and alone
But now I realize you are the answer to my very prayers.

3
Funny but it seems like God had made plans all along.
Took a lot of twists and turns, had to let go of my own;
Funny it may seem, you know, how lucky have I been
Now I have you all beside me - my unanswered prayers.

Bridge:
God, I can’t thank enough, you’re the Lord of my life.
Coz I owe you so much, I fall down on my knees;
I couldn’t bear the thought of it had you answered all my dreams
I wouldn’t have my wife and kids - your very answer to my unanswered prayers.

(Interlude)

(Repeat Refrain except last line)

Coda:
But now I realize you are the answer to my very prayers.

Romeo! Romeo! Performs TMOPB (Video)




THE MARK OF PRIESTLY BLISS

Words by Rev. J. Roel Lungay

Music by Rev. Arnold Zamora

Arranged and performed by Romeo C. Mascariñas

1
A priest forever, a priest for life
Called to serve - to live and die.
Through many years and happy tears,
Gods joy abounds, His grace supplied.

2
A priest for always, a priest I am,
In poverty I am to be;
A good example for all to see -
Salt of the earth, light to be seen.

Chorus:
You called me to proclaim your goodness to the world;
Make peace with everyone, uniting all as one;
May all the sacraments, in your most holy name,
Lead us to holiness - the mark of priestly bliss.

3
A priest for Christ, a priest for love,
A priest for all, thats who I am;
One blessed vision in Christ our God
For all his chosen, anointed hands.

(Repeat Chorus 2x)

Coda:
May all the sacraments, in your most Holy Name,
Lead us to holiness - the mark of priestly bliss.

A priest of God, a priest I am!

Performed by Romeo! Romeo!


1
Wait 'til you hear from me;
When I come to you
With a friend or two,
When I call your name
No, it’s not a game;
Take a real deep breath
Coz’ I’m aiming for you!

2
When you open that door
‘Til the sun's no more
When I count to four
Yes, you’ll think I’m a fool.
When the moon comes out
And you hear me shout,
Yes, you’ll open your mouth
You won't know what strike you out!

Chorus:
Big bang! Big bang!
Big bang! Big bang!
Let this night be the night!
Big bang! Big bang!
Big bang! Big bang!
What a sight for the eyes!

3
Like a kid at school
I’m all over you.
Everything’s a game
I don’t feel no pain.
When you see me frown
Take a hike or turn around.
Now if you see me smile
Everything is worth the while.

(Repeat Refrain)

(Interlude)

Bridge:
What a year it had been
Like a roller-coaster train.
Life will never be the same
But never, never say again!
