Here’s the lyrics of Lenka’s new single:

Knock, Knock by Lenka

A second, a minute, an hour, a day goes by
I’m hopin’ just to be by your side
I’m turnin’ the handle, it won’t open
Don’t make me wait ’cause right now I need your smile
Knock, knock

When life had locked me out I turned to you
So open the door
‘Cause you’re all I need right now, it’s true
Nothin’ works like you

Little louder, little louder
Little louder knockin’
Little louder, little louder

A warm bath, a good laugh, an old song that you know by heart
I’ve tried it but they all leave me cold
So now I’m here waitin’ to see you
My remedy for all that’s been hurtin’ me
Knock, knock

When life had locked me out I turned to you
So open the door
‘Cause you’re all I need right now, it’s true
Nothin’ works like you

You seem to know the way
To turn my frown upside down
You always know what to say
To make me feel like everything’s okay

Little louder, little louder
Little louder knockin’
Little louder, little louder
Little louder knockin’

Little louder, little louder
Little louder knockin’
Little louder, little louder

When life had locked me out I turned to you
And you open the door
And you’re all I need right now, it’s true
Nothin’ works like you

When life had knocked me down I turned to you
And you open the door
And you’re all I need right now, it’s true
Nothin’ works like you
Nothin’ works like you

When life had locked me out I turned to you
And you open the door
And you’re all I need right now, it’s true
Nothin’ works like you

Gary Valenciano: \"Back Home\" Concert On La Salle Greenhills\' 50th Anniversary

Gary V. is an inspirational man and there’s no doubt about how he had shared that inspiration over the past 25 years he’s in the music industry, both through his songs and through his life as well. Joining him in the concert are his fellow LSGH alumni Ogie Alcasid, Rannie Raymundo, Carlo Orosa, Dingdong Avanzado, Louie Ocampo, The Tux and his children Gabriel, Paolo, and Kiana.

Eraserheads “The Final Set” Concert Also Pays Tribute To Francis Magalona

Last Saturday, March 7th Eraserheads performed their last “The Final Set” concert at SM Mall of Asia grounds. Ely Buendia, Raymund Marasigan, Buddy Sabala and Marcus Adoro were immortalized and will never be again seen together on stage.

Eraserheads: The Final Set Concert
E-Heads fans came in around 100,000 to watch them play their legendary music together once more as a patch-up for their botched reunion concert last year in August due to Ely Buendia’s heart failure in the middle of their act.

Eraserheads: August 30, 2009 Reunion Concert

Eraserheads, known as the “Beatles of the Philippines” gave a strong musical and cultural statement back there… and even paid tribute to the “Master Rapper” Francis Magalona. Francis supposed to make an entrance rapping at the end of their song ‘Superproxy’, however he died the day before the concert.

Ely did have some qualms after Francis died, especially about his health. They both had their health battles last year and even have a more defined life, as “a ticking time bomb” for Ely and “borrowed time” for Francis, though he had let go now of his “borrowed time.”

Ely Buendia and Francis Magalona Interview

Both of them came out as great persons to even inspire other people who also have sickness or illnesses they’ve been going through. They actually came up with “The Sickos” album, a project that right now is in the hands of Ely Buendia to push through. Francis may seem to have just made it halfway, but his voice, heart and compassion for his fellow artist and countrymen have gone in full throttle enough to fuel his undying cost.

The Sickos Project

The Sickos” project proceeds is said to be a primer fund for a foundation for sick people in the music and entertainment industry they’ve pulled together. It doesn’t have a release date yet. But watch out!
