Edward Barber is about to take the world by storm with his upcoming new album and armed with his passion for music, he’s made his very own love team playlist!
The “Fantastica” actor shared his personal theme song choices for Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla, Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil, Joshua Garcia and Julia Barretto, Loisa Andalio and Ronnie Alonte, and Donny Pangilinan and Kisses Delavin. Of course, he also dedicated not one, but two love songs for his dear on-screen partner Maymay Entrata. Take a listen to his choices below and prepare for your heart to melt!
“When I think of KathNiel, I think of ‘Fly Me to the Moon’ by Frank Sinatra. I always think of Kuya Daniel singing it, or ‘yung song ni Kuya Daniel na ‘Hinahanap-hanap Kita.’ It’s one of those songs na, when you here this song, I think of them. I saw a video before of Kuya Daniel singing it to Ate Kathryn, even before I entered showbiz, I saw that,” Edward revealed.
He explained, “Sa ngayon ‘214’, ‘yung theme song ng ‘Alone/Together’ sung by JM de Guzman. That’s what I think about when I think of LizQuen.”
“For some reason, I [think of] Ex Battalion. [I know I’m] supposed to [pick] be a love song, but I really think of that song, ‘Hayaan Mo Sila.’ They’re always dancing to that kahit on-set kami, sumasayaw si Ronnie. Kahit ‘di love song, let’s make an exception kasi that’s what I think about when I think of LoiNie,” the actor said.
Edward goes, “It’s ‘Moon River.’ I think of it when I see Kuya Joshua and Ate Julia together. There were times when you’re just looking at them and bagay sila together, and you watch them and I think of that as their background music.”
“For these two, ‘Pretty Boy’,” he said, adding, “They always sing that. During the promotion for “Fantastica” that was their duet together, and ilang mallshows ‘yun na sunod-sunod so we always heard them singing that song together.”
For his one and only soulmate, Edward chose two of the most sincere love songs ever. He revealed, “The song that most people would know would be ‘Perfect’ by Ed Sheeran, but for me, I like ‘This I Promise You’ by Ronan Keating. Kasi ‘pag ako nagpo-promise ako, although forgetful ako, when I promise I mean it. I don’t want to give empty promises to anyone, and to Maymay I once told her while inside ‘Pinoy Big Brother’ that we’ll go to Japan, so ayun nakapunta kami sa Japan last December. It fits with how I want to live my life.”
