Splintr Unplugged Greyhoundz Winners!

Tuesday, January 18th, 2011

Finally, we’ve been able to pick three of the best entries! We would like to thank each and everyone who joined our little contest!

Without further ado, here are our winners.

Our second runner-up winner gets:
One Greyhoundz T-shirt
One Splintr.com T-shirt
A Muziklaban Cap and T-shirt

Our second runner-up is Philsan Aguilar!

Your Puppet and Clown

It is one of my favorite Greyhoundz songs, especially the unplugged version.

Basically, the title itself explains what the song is all about; it applies to all things, where one is being manhandled or being controlled by another, it also has a great political meaning if you try to relate it with what is happening to the world where almost everybody is a slave of something or someone and that slave cannot do anything but to obey and to follow. With the words being used, it can be anything. I can even have thousands of examples. Even lovers can relate to this song. If one is dominant and the other can’t do anything but to follow just in the name of love, and kahit harap harapan ka na niyang sinasaktan ay OKAY pa rin (drama) hehe. I won’t make this much longer, all I’m trying to say is; this song is for everybody who, at one point in their life, has an encounter with a sadistic creature who makes life miserable and with every command, the answer must always be YES with a smile on your face.

The first runner-up wins:
Two tickets to the Red Horse Beer Muziklaban Grand Finals on Jan 29, 2011
A Limited Edition Red Horse Beer Rocket Bucket
A Muziklaban Cap and T-shirt

Our first runner-up is Victor Sebastian!

I just happened to come from a bad breakup before I bought Execution Style. This song really hit me in the gut with its emotional and powerful lyrics. I may have misinterpreted this song a bit because of how it came close to my personal struggles at that time but here goes.

It’s about a couple who had a falling out. The guy believes that their relationship’s foundations were built upon lies and deceit (the castle built on sand) woven by his partner. The girl was stolen by another guy. Perhaps by a friend or an acquaintance (another thief). The girl was cheating all along (went out dancing with other supposed kings) right under his nose (somewhere not so distant from here. while I was asleep) and the guy did not have the slightest idea. He didn’t know the girl and what she was capable of. He just did not see the girl ever doing that (dreaming of a different scene, sleeping with a different queen). The discovery made the guy feel like he was being choked…being hanged.

The guy then looks back and thinks how they were in love and that they’re weakness was each other (the poison). He also wonders if things could have been different had the lies stopped. He still has what-ifs and regrets (will this episode last a little longer…). He still loves her despite what she’s done and is willing to give it another chance.

And finally, our grand prize winner will receive:
One signed CD of the Splintr Unplugged Audio (total 12 tracks) of Greyhoundz
A Limited Edition Red Horse Beer Rocket Bucket
One Red Horse Beer Hoodie jacket

And that lucky son of a gun is Ivan Villacorta!

The song that I like most from Greyhoundz’s set is “Taking You High.”

Taking You High has been one of the best hits from Houndz and it became one of my favorite since it has smooth/relaxing sound and it featured different artists such as Ian(Queso/Wilabaliw), Jamir (Slapshock) , and Bogoy (Zoooom). Houndz demonstrated on this song that they not only know Rap Metal but also know how to groove with different type of genre. It is also one of the best Pinoy rock collaborations in the history and they proved that after a decade, they are still in the Music industry together and continuing to produce head bangin’ sounds. If Philippine television consider “Eat Bulaga” as an institution then its counterpart to Pinoy Rock music industry is Greyhoundz, Queso, and Slapshock.

In my own opinion, the song is about Venni Vetti Vicci. They came, they saw, and they conquered. People cried and hungered for a good music so the gates has been opened and the band came. The band produced hits and they invited people to listen to their music. People enjoyed jamming to their music and got addicted to the rock solid hits produced which is why they has now conquered the Rock industry in the Philippines.

Congratulations to our winners! Remember, all this wouldn’t be possible without our sponsors- Red Horse Beer!
