10 Life Lessons We Can Learn From The ERASERHEADS


Their music often told our stories, summing up an entire philosophy about life and how to live it.

In general, life is both exhilarating and frightening, the future can be a big empty space of the unknown. There are times in life when you feel like you’re out alone, when you don’t fit in anywhere. But apart from everything else, life has a sea of possibilities, and all you have to do is to dive in. Because it's all waiting for you. 

Rarely has these profound life sentiments been so bluntly and beautifully expressed.

Here are 10 Eheads songs about this journey called life, and how you go about living your way though it. 

1. "There's a b-side to every story" - Fruitcake
As humans, our perception of things often get clouded by our feelings. This line is a good reminder that whenever we take a look at things, we should keep in mind that there would always be another dimension to it.

2. "Huwag kang matakot sa hindi mo pa makita." - Huwag Kang Matakot
Uncertainties come with life itself. Fear, too. But we should be constantly be reminded of the fact that it would remain that way, and we are all scared. But we have to suck it up in order to live.

5.  "..all the pain that we are feeling has some meaning in this world." - Hard To Believe
One can only understand happiness if he experiences hardships. The toughest experiences can be used to your advantage if you let it. It makes your skin thicker, it widens your understanding of things, it generally makes you a stronger person if you don't cave in from it.

7. "Kahit namumrublema, basta't kami ay magkasama" - Toyang
This track is one of the best life anthems ever, being with the person you love is still far more important than the material things you may or may not be able to give.

8.  "Everything's gonna be okay." - Hey, Jay
This may just be their most uplifting single you can listen to. It really doesn't matter what people think of you, we’re all fundamentally flawed people, but just as long as you stay true to yourself, then whatever happens, you're gonna be OK.

9. "Buksan ang puso at isipan, paliparin ang kamalayan." - Alapaap 
Whatever the story is behind this, "Alapaap" is a simple, heartfelt song about experiencing everything that life has to offer. Freedom combined with imagination can be the most liberating thing in the world, even if it doesn't necessarily feel like it at that time.

10. "'Di mo na kailangang mag-alinlangan, kung tama ang gagawin mo" - Maling Akala
There's something that's so admirable about the spirit of defiance permeating this particular line of the song. Do what you feel is right and that's what you can call a life well lived.

    Never judge a book by its cover. You have no idea what that person has been through. Always be cautious of what you're going to say because otherwise, you might offend someone.

    "Ang mga tao sa buhay mo ay nagdaraan lamang. Umaalis, dumarating, walang naiiwan."- Slo Mo

    Life goes on. People walk in and out of our lives and there's nothing we can do about it. When you miss someone, it doesn't mean you want them back in your life. It's a sign of moving on.
