Parokya Ni Edgar could probably create a full album of crazy songs, parodies, and fillers despite growing older, getting married, and having kids of their own. We love them for their harana and love songs, but we’ll never get enough of their funny compositions!
Of the many they’ve written and performed, here are 8:
The song opens with a relaxing sound that makes you want to close your eyes and fall asleep on a hammock. And then it sings about the simple dream of wanting to eat oranges and we think, great, we want oranges, too.
But then you remember that this song is from a band like Parokya Ni Edgar, and realize that, wait, could it really be just about oranges? Or is there a double meaning? Either way, we’re saving this on our playlist.
Back when CD albums were a thing, Parokya ni Edgar would make a lot of crazy funny fillers that’d make you LOL in public and possibly shame yourself for doing so. But how can you not, with a song like Celfone Wallet?
And if you feel like you’ve heard this song before, it’s because Celfone Wallet is a punny song for the old Seiko wallet ad!
Nakaw Ang Wallet Ko
It starts out fine, really, and honestly, we were expecting a romantic song. But the moment the band starts to sing, we lose our heads upon the realization that this is a very Bob Dylan-inspired song.
When we first saw the official music video, we weren’t quite sure if it was the real thing. Could it possibly be a spoof video? A school project, maybe? Nah, it really is the band’s video that’s all about endorsing the *magic* of Papa Cologne. Try it!
This is Parokya Ni Edgar’s attempt at a heartfelt Christmas story. And it’s actually worth listening to! Olops was also probably what started the knock knock joke about the song Rudolph, The Red-Nosed Reindeer.
Don’t Touch My Birdie
Imagine, an almost five-minute song that’s supposedly about a dear pet birdie. It’s impossible not to get through this song without laughing or having indecent thoughts. The song has also inspired a lot of fans to make their own videos, and a lot are quite impressive!
Where do they get such ideas? Seriously, the wellspring of jokes from Parokya Ni Edgar is endless and that’s probably why they are also, undeniably, the best at what they do. Cobrabird is the perfect song that makes you ask yourself: what did I just listen to???
Screamo? Heavy metal? Yes, the song’s hardcore to the core, that is, until you actually listen to the lyrics. It really is all about Family Dinner and all that it entails, such as being considerate of what other family members would like to eat.
