3. Manny Villar (Jingle/Song)- Using Street Children as the artist of the song was a great idea for touching people's heart. Children are having LSS (Last Song Syndrome) on the song and Manny is earning more fans on Facebook with the help of this song. "Si Manny Villar ang Magtatapos ng Ating Kahirapan" the most remembered part of the song but is it possible for Manny Villar to end the poverty of his pillow people?
4.Hawak Kamay- It is a news in TV Patrol World that Loren Legarda paid for the Hawak Kamay's music intellectual property for Php 1,000,000.00 for her to legally use the song as jingle. The song was composed and popularized by Yeng Constantino a known Filipino artist.
Eddie Ako- sung by Gloc 9, a Filipino rap artist for the TV ads of Bro. Eddie Villanueva. Although the song was good, i don't really think that Bro. Eddie like rap. Yo! Bro. Eddie Wazzup man!!!
5.Posible- is it posible for Gibo to sulong for using this song? Because Singer-songwriter Rico Blanco has blasted Lakas-Kampi-CMD standard bearer Gilbert “Gibo” Teodoro for using his composition, Rivermaya’s “Posible,” in one of his political advertisements, claiming that it was done without permission. Blanco was surprised that the singer in the political ad even copied his voice that might give an impression that he is supporting Teodoro in the coming elections.It was reported that Teodoro’s camp paid the record label, Viva Records, for the rights but how come the singer is giving the administration’s presidential candidate the benefit of the doubt.Rico acknowledged that Teodoro is a smart person, “but if he can't run a good campaign how can he can run a country?”. Well just good luck for the two of you.
Note: after all Philippine Star publish that using the song was legal that's why the ad still goes on.
