The year was 2000. I was in 4th year high school in Claret. One of our final projects was to create an art form based on Jose Rizal’s El Filibusterismo. Given the “pa-cool” attitude we had, we decided to make a soundtrack.

It was mostly comprised of covers or reinterpretations of popular songs recorded on a two-track karaoke machine. The last song however, was more of a graduation song rather than the ending track to the album.

The class all wanted it to be the official graduation song of the batch, but since we are not from the star section, another song was chosen instead.

This song was composed by R.A. (The Daily Panda) , with Voltaire Parmisano, Jevon Olea (yes, the now famous Jevon Olea), and me.

Happy Graduation to all ye students out there!

    Amusing. Nakakaaliw. It’s so high school at Claret, even the choice of certain words in the lyrics. You should include the lyrics in the post.

    I’ve posted the Claret School March at http://wp.me/pr0E2-uH However, I am still looking for the more upbeat version, the march that we were used to in the 1980s. I am also looking for a copy of the Hymn to St. Anthony Claret as none seems to be available via online search. Thanks!
