Punong Mahistrado Blues

Favorite Song

A Victory Concert Party celebrating Noynoy Aquino’s  win as the country’s new President was held last June 2010 at the Quezon Memorial Circle.  Aquino sang two songs. The songs were “Watch What Happens” by Sergio Mendes, and “Estudyante Blues” by Freddie Aguilar.

Last December 14, at the House of Representatives Christmas Party, Aquino sang Estudyante Blues again.

It seems Estudyante Blues is his favorite song.

Before the reported videoke singing, Aquino personally thanked all the congressmen who helped impeach Chief Justice Renato Corona.

He also expressed his gratitude for the quick passage of the 2012 national budget.

He said that he is hoping for reforms in the judiciary branch, as well as better prospects for the economy next year.

New Version

Chief Justice Renato Corona also has his own version of Freddie Aguilar’s Estudyante Blues, having slightly different lyrics:

Chief Justice (Punong Mahistrado) Blues

by Renato Corona

I

Ako ang nakikita
Ako ang nasisisi
Ako ang lagi raw may kinakampihan

Paggising sa umaga
Balita ang almusal
Bago pumasok sa Korte Suprema

Kapag nananahimik
Ako’y paririnigan
‘Di ko alam ang gagawin

Ako’y hinuhusgahan
Ayaw ko naman patulan
Nasasaktan ang damdamin

REFRAIN
Ako’y walang kalayaan
Sunod kay Arroyo lamang

II
Paggaling sa Korte Suprema
Diretso naman ng Summit
Pang-aasar naman ang aabutan

Truth Commision daw aking kinatay
TRO kay Arroyo ay binigay
Pati asawa ko ay dinamay

Tatawag ang mga kongresista
Sa kanila’y malalaman
Ako ay na-impeach na pala

At ‘ngayon ako’y nangangatwiran
Sila’y lalabanan
Senado ay aking haharapin

[Repeat REFRAIN]
[Repeat I]
[Repeat REFRAIN]

Ako ang nakikita
Ako ang nasisisi
Ako ang lagi raw may kinakampihan

Final Note/Huling Hirit:

It was also reported that Court Administrator and Spokesperson Midas Marquez would also be contributing a new version of the Sergio Mendes’ Watch What Happens song.

Soon!
