In 1995, the Filipino rock band Aegis came together. At Japan's nightclubs and lounges, they were once recognized as AG's Soundtrippers.

In the Filipino language, a kiss is called a Halik. The vocalist in this song is lamenting sadly about how much she longs for her ex's kiss and wondering why he would ever leave her.

“Halik” is among the best Filipino karaoke songs. It is an excellent pick if you want to play a heartache ballad to an audience you know will appreciate it.

This karaoke tune is perfect if you enjoy dramatic, heartfelt melodies. Drama is always welcome if the crowd and the performer find it entertaining.

3. Dadalhin by Regine Velasquez

Song Year: 2014

When Regine Velasquez released “Dadalhin” as a single from her album in 2002, it instantly became one of her most recognizable and beloved works.

This song is for all the folks whose hearts are shattered, no matter what the fate of the love that looked so genuine initially may be.

It was replete with happy endings, commitment, and passion. It also reminds us that life is full of apologies and reconciliations. One cycle inevitably follows another.

4. Sandalan by 6cyclemind

Song Year: 2005

The Filipino band 6cyclemind released their second full-length album Panorama, which contains the song Sandalan. One's willingness to provide a sympathetic ear and a shoulder to weep on in times of despair is the song's subject, whose title comes from its literal meaning.

This single's captivating instrumentals and emotionally charged vocals have made it a staple at every Filipino karaoke night.

5. Nosi Balasi by Sampaguita

Song Year: 1989

Sampaguita is the band behind this electrifying catchy Filipino hit. The song's lyrics serve as an inspiration. If you're confident of your judgment and they're still troubling you, ignore them. Do not give it much thought since doing so will just lead to further intimidation.

If it brings you joy, then keep doing it. If you continue to worry about them, nothing positive will happen. It is like that, so you shouldn't try to resist. That you are being harassed is evidence that they are at a loss for action and are doing so because of you.

6. Narda by Kamikazee

Song Year: 2006

Everyone who enjoys music, especially rock, will be familiar with the moniker Kamikazee. The band's name was initially a Japanese word for the Imperial Japanese Navy's Special Attack Units of suicide pilots during World War II.

Nevertheless, if you add an extra “e” to the end of Kamikazee, the resulting play on words is “kami kasi,” which may be interpreted as “we are the reason.”

This catchy rock song shot the band to fame when used in the fictional series Darna, starring Angel Locsin. In 2006, the band released the piece on their album Maharot. It is one of the best Tagalog rock karaoke songs.

7. Luha by Aegis

Song Year: 1998

Have you recently ended a toxic relationship with a special someone? The song “Luha” of Aegis will save you. “Luha,” translated as “tear,” is a heartfelt rock song about being hurt by someone who never really cared for you.

This song's upbeat tunes and compelling vocals have made it a classic in the Philippines long after its 1998 premiere, making it one of the best Tagalog karaoke songs.

8. Bebot by Black Eyed Peas

Song Year: 2006

The Black Eyed Peas‘ “Bebot” is the last single from their 2006 album Monkey Business.

Several members of the Filipino community have considered this hit to be their national anthem. Usually, one of the youngsters performs it, but everyone joins in to chant “Filipino! Filipino! Filipino!”

If you play this song, everyone will finally put down their phone and participate in the karaoke fun.

9. Banyo Queen by Andrew E.

Song Year: 2013

The song's message is rather blunt, yet its catchiness cannot be denied. Andrew E. goes out partying with a woman and wakes up in a filthy hotel, as shown in the 1999 film Banyo Queen.

The guitar sounds from the 1961 classic “Stand by Me” are sampled in this tune. Its fast pace and questionable subject matter will get a few chuckles out of those who can understand Tagalog.

10. 214 by Rivermaya

Song Year: 1994

Filipino band Rivermaya released their rock song “214” in 1994. The catchy acronym for the song originated from the band's bassist, Nathan Azarcon. It was included in the band's first album.

In fact, it's one of the band's most successful songs. Several interpretations of the title's mysterious number component have surfaced as time has passed.

Some have suggested that the number “214” in the song's title refers to the opening lyric, “Am I real? ” while others have said that it stands for the letters in the word “BAD,” implying that the song has something to do with Valentine's Day.

Overall, it is a love song expressing a partner's desire to always be at their side. For a special someone, this is an excellent dedication song.

11. I Will Survive by Gloria Gaynor

Song Year: 1978

The song was part of Gloria Gaynor's sixth studio album, Love Tracks, released in 1978. Dino Fekaris and Freddie Perren are responsible for the script. It is an all-time best-seller and a timeless disco classic.

Very likely sung by one of the party's titas. Maybe she never married or is happily alone. The singer of “I Will Survive” is independent and self-reliant enough to succeed even without a man.

12. Bakit Ngayon Ka Lang by Ogie Alcasid

Best Filipino Karaoke Songs

Song Year: 1995

Considering the song's context, it's safe to assume that the protagonist is singing about a late love. “Bakit Ngayon Ka Lang” means he has a new girlfriend or lover but asks why she didn't enter his life sooner.
