Music Monday - Kaleidoscope World by Francis M

For this week’s Music Monday, I thought of featuring a song from the master rapper himself, Francis Magalona, as a tribute to his musical genius.

Francis M was considered to be a legend in the Philippine music industry. With the success of his earliest albums, he was the first Filipino rapper in the Philippines to cross over to the mainstream thus earning him his title as the "King of Pinoy Rap”. He also pioneered the merging of rap with Pinoy rock, which influenced other artists in the same genre.

A few days after Magalona’s death, Malacanang announced that Francis M will be posthumously awarded the National Medal of Merit, for his contributions in promoting patriotism through music.


Kaleidoscope World - Francis Magalona

Kaleidoscope World Lyrics

So many faces, so many races
Different voices, different choices
Some are mad, while others laugh
Some live alone with no better half
Others grieve while others curse
And others mourn behind a big black hearse
Some are pure and some half-bred
Some are sober and some are wasted
Some are rich because of fate and
Some are poor with no food on their plate
Some stand out while others blend
Some are fat and stout while some are thin
Some are friends and some are foes
Some have some while some have most

Every color and every hue
Is represented by me and you
Take a slide in the slope
Take a look in the kaleidoscope
Spinnin' round, make it twirl
In this kaleidoscope world

Some are great and some are few
Others lie while some tell the truth
Some say poems and some do sing
Others sing through their guitar strings
Some know it all while some act dumb
Let the bassline strum to the bang of the drum
Some can swim while some will sink
And some will find their minds and think
Others walk while others run
You can't talk peace and have a gun
Some are hurt and start to cry
Don't ask me how don't ask me why
Some are friends and some are foes
Some have some while some have most

Every color and every hue
Is represented by me and you
Take a slide in the slope
Take a look in the kaleidoscope
Spinnin' round, make it twirl
In this kaleidoscope world
