LISTEN: Romantic OPM songs you can dedicate to your significant other

By Melanie Uson Published Feb 12, 2023 2:00 pm

Love can be expressed in a myriad of ways. Aside from grand surprises, it can also be done through the little things—like serenading or simply sharing a love song that reminds you of them or your relationship.

We're not just talking about hit, catchy love songs from international artists. In the local music scene alone, there are a lot of heart-fluttering tracks that could easily bring kilig to your significant other this Valentine's Day. Here are some of them.

Bawat Piyesa  

At habang ika'y yinayakap nang maigiBinubulong ang dalanging huwag sana maglaho sa hanginAng bawat piyesa na bumubuo sa 'yoBawat piyesang nawa'y mapasaakin habang-buhay

Bawat Piyesa is one of the hit tracks from Munimuni’s 2019 album Kulayan Natin. You can use this song to show how much you love every part of your special someone and make them feel seen and appreciated.

Your Universe 

I don't think that you even realizeThe joy you make me feel when I'm inside your universeYou hold me like I'm the one who's preciousI hate to break it to you, but it's just the other way aroundYou can thank your stars all you wantBut I'll always be the lucky one

Released in 2008, Rico Blanco’s timeless song Your Universe still gives major feels to this day. Other than the kilig, love is also about commitment to being a part of your partner's life and its in-betweens no matter what. This four-minute song conveys the magical feeling of being with the person who makes you experience a love that’s simple and warm.


Hanggang dito na lamang ang 'yong mga luhaTama na, tahan naHihilumin ang iyong mga sugatPighati'y wakas na

Also by Munimuni, Tahanan puts the spotlight on love as a source of comfort. This OPM song talks about being willing to serve as a “home” to someone, especially when everything else becomes overwhelming.  


Lalim sa 'king bawat paghingaNakatitig lamang sa iyoNaglakad ka ng dahan-dahanSa pasilyo tungo sa altar ng simbahan

Being committed to a relationship is not all sunshine and rainbows, but reaching the point of marriage is a milestone that’s worth celebrating. Pasilyo paints a love that’s long been prayed for and finally marks it for a lifetime with rings and vows. 

Ikaw at Ako  

Kung minsan ay di ko nababanggit 
Pag-ibig ko'y 'di masukat 
Ng anumang lambing 
At kung magkamali akong ika'y saktan 
Puso mo ba'y handang magpatawad

Johnoy Danao’s Ikaw at Ako talks about love that’s genuine. If you want to dedicate a song to the person you love the most in the most direct way possible, this is it. It’s like an internal monologue of a lover who opens up about their certainty with their loved one in the future and pledging their commitment for better or for worse.   


My bones are safe, and my heart can rest 
Knowing it belongs to you

Nothing beats the feeling of being secure with the right person. Reese Lansangan’s Home tells a love that’s been longed for and finally having someone by your side as you continue on with your journey.

Bawat Daan 

Maligaw man at mawala 
At umikot man sa kawalan 
Dahil sa bawat kailan, sino't saan 
Ikaw lamang ang kasagutan

Ebe Dancel’s Bawat Daan is undeniably one of the best love songs ever written. It's such an incredible feeling to be able to find your safe haven amid the complexities of life. This is the kind of love that you would not want to let go of, ever.
