Nothing says “party” more than Multiplex.
Back when mini-component systems were the “in” thing, the big radios came with a collection of Multiplex tapes that were always at war with “minus-one.” It was a great way to spend Halloween; the days before All Saints’ Day were spent with doble-kara performances of “Endless Love,” where half of one’s body would be dolled up like Diana Ross, and the other half dressed up like Lionel Richie. There’s also the birit competitions that go with Whitney Houston falsettos, particularly that of “I Will Always Love You.” Quite a number of performers were born from the folds of Multiplex lyrics pamphlets, painstakingly memorized for the Tanghalang Bayan at the town fiesta.
Never mind if it’s a rendition of a song by Simply Red. I hope you comprehend.
