What do you get when you combine a chord progression with relationship problems? A hit song, of course. That’s exactly what happened with Mayonnaise and “Tayo Na Lang Dalawa.”
Songwriter and frontman Monty Macalino walks us through the inspiration behind the track, which came soon after their monster hit “Jopay.”
By then the band had established a formula—loud guitar, loud drums—and sought to channel their energies to come up with a song that expressed themes of confusion, longing, and pain. Even the video was inspired by those of Deftones, one of Macalino’s favorite bands.
