"Love Is All That Matters" & the Philippines

Recommended Posts

My wife tells me "Love Is All That Matters" was a big hit in the Philippines when she was a kid. It has been covered several times by some of their popular artists. It is still played at some weddings today. I heard a 1997 cover by a female artist from PI. It was pretty good. A little faster beat and she repeated part of the line, "Loneliness has ended, Love has set-love has set me free" Interesting...

The Philippines: Strange food, good taste in music.

I don't know what it is with the Filipinos and Eric Carmen.......I've sung "All By Myself" a couple of times at Filipino clubs here and always got a good response. There are a lot of people over there that may not know Eric by name, but they certainly know his songs.

One of these days, I will have to get over there myself. In the meantime, I'll have to just order some Adobo.......

Now I'm hearing that "Love is All That Matters" is still one of the favorite cell phone programable ring tones in the Philippines. I've heard 2 more covers of that song sung by popular female artists over there. An American named David Pomeranz is also real popular. Anyone know who he is?
