Typical Cebuano Sunday

Sundays in Cebu gives a different feel, it gives a weird and lazy atmosphere. Cebuano Sunday is a rest day, a family day, a Church day. And you know it is Sunday when you wake in the mornings with “standard” songs (Matt Monroe, Frank Sinatra, Engelbert Humperdinck, and those I don’t anymore know) and Visayan and Cebuano songs resounding through the walls of your bedroom. Provided that you live in an ordinary neighborhood.

The following medley of songs are just few of unforgettable and undying Visayan songs and Cebuano songs.  Some of them I don’t know but my mother sings them well though that is why I got to be familiar with a few of them (actually, however, songs of Max Surban or Yoyoy Villame are the ones usually aired).  Since these are the very old songs, they are not very much heard over the radio anymore but remain to be known.  If you are a Cebuano, listening to this would make you feel like Sunday.  I encourage you to view related videos too especially the ASAP tribute to Yoyoy Villame featuring Cebu’s pride Dulce, Anna Fegi, and Sheryn Regis (after Sheryn’s medley video)! 😀
