Another Day, Another Rally

There's going to be a rally at the corner of Ayala Avenue and Paseo de Roxas in Makati City today.

This will, of course, seriously snarl up traffic and make it infinitely more difficult to move around. I doubt the rallyists themselves have thought of the consequences of their rallies but, hey, it's for the good of the country, right? Yep, the increased noise, traffic, and garbage will go towards making our country a better place. Tell that to the cops who are currently on high alert in case violence breaks out. Tell that to the street cleaners who will have to clear up the garbage once the rally is over. Tell that to the office workers around the area who will have to wade through horrendous traffic to get home to their families. When all is said and done, is it all going to be worth it?

Enough of my ranting.

Anyway, went to watch a show with The Dawn last night at Greenbelt 2 sponsored by Crossover 105.1 (the jazz/easy listening radio station). Now, everyone knows this band for its hard rockin' sounds but since their sponsor was an easy listening radio station, they toned it down a notch. Nevertheless, they still sang old favorites like Salamat and Iisang Bangka Tayo. Anyone know where I can get mp3's of these songs??? I'd appreciate a holler.
