[dropcap letter="E"]ver since I wrote about My Husband’s Lover a few months ago, I ended up being thoroughly fascinated by the sheer mania surrounding the show. It seemed almost nightly that fans of the program would make the MHL hashtag trend, and awareness about the plight of the pa-min was at an all-time high.

And then, they announced they’re doing One More Try: My Husband’s Lover the Concert at Smart Araneta Coliseum this Saturday. My cup runneth over.

As a huge fan of the show, I do hope that Tom Rodriguez and Dennis Trillo, both apparently able vocalists, would cover a few songs, aside from the obvious “One More Try.” They will definitely play up the TomDen loveteam for the show, and as such, will probably be singing some ballads to each other like “My Heart Will Go On,” “Said I Loved You, But I Lied,” and “Feel The Spark” I do have a sinking feeling, though, that Erik and Vincent won’t be singing…

Why? It’s a song that’s true to form: Erik took Vincent’s world for a spin when Erik came back into his life, among other things. The lyrics are just a perfect fit for the head trip that resulted from all of this.

Why Not? If the word “meatspin” doesn’t ring a bell to you at all, consider yourself very, very lucky.

Why? Hey, it worked for ChAiza! That concert was a bona fide hit!

Why Not? I have a strong suspicion that the song is way out of the vocal range of TomDen.

Why? It’s an amazing power ballad that makes TomDen fans ask: when they say they would do anything for love, but they won’t do that, what exactly is “that?”

Why Not? It’s really, really long (That’s what he said!).

Why? It’s one of the ultimate gay anthems, so it should fit in perfectly with the theme of the concert. It also contains 23 simulated orgasms in the 17-minute edit.

Why Not? Do you really want to hear TomDen doing simulated orgasms for 17 minutes? If you actually do, how convincing do you think they will be at it?


[text_image img="https://8list.com.ph/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/Sirena-Gloc-9-feat-Ebe-Dancel-4V.jpg" width="100%" type="subheading"]Sirena-Gloc-9-feat-Ebe-Dancel-4[/text_image]

Why? It’s one of the best songs from Gloc 9’s discography, and would put TomDen’s rap and belting skillz to the test, what with Ebe Dancel doing the original chorus.

Why Not? It was already covered by Aiza Seguerra during their concert. Sorry, guys, you snooze, you lose.

(Editor's Note: Gloc 9 just promoted the concert on Twitter, so don't be surprised if they do end up performing this song!)


[text_image img="https://8list.com.ph/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/No-Homo-Lonely-Island-4V.jpg" width="100%" type="subheading"]No-Homo-Lonely-Island-4[/text_image]

Why? It’s a biting satirical take on the homophobic expression “no homo,” with increasingly homoerotic lyrics as it goes along.

Why Not? Because the satire might fly over the heads of Pinoy audiences, and you know what would happen next.


[text_image img="https://8list.com.ph/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/Its-Raining-Men-Countre-Black-2V.jpg" width="100%" type="subheading"]Its-Raining-Men-Countre-Black-2[/text_image]

Why? It’s a very, err, appropriate song that they can sing and dance to, and definitely will be a treat for the fans.

Why Not? Have you noticed that even if Erik and Vincent are lovers, they don’t just go for any random guy they see? So even if it would rain men, they’d still have eyes for only each other. Fancy that!

Why? Do you really have to ask? “I wanna see your peacock, -cock, -cock, your peacock!”

Why Not? No, I mean it. Don’t ask. Especially not about the Tagalog version.
