We continue our month of songs featuring Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao. Today we feature the official music video for his track "Lalaban Ako".
This is certainly nothing too special, but is one of his lesser known songs, and has a video that very much looks like a charitable track, rather than a song by a boxer.
The song isn't great, the video looks like it's a mixed mess and it's certainly nothing to get too excited about. We understand that the video did bring attention to Pacquiao's great work outside of the ring, for the kids in the Philippines, but it certainly isn't an amazing music video.
In saying that it does feature some interesting stuff, including his KO of Ricky Hatton and some training footage, but yeah we're not in a rush to rewatch or relisten to this.
In August we spent a month featuring Thai videos, mostly songs from Samart Payakaroon, and for September we've changed focus on to.... Manny Pacquiao, who himself had a rather interesting time with music. Of course being one of the greatest fighters of all time is one thing but that talent with is fists didn't equate to being a great singer.
To begin the month of Pacquiao songs we've gone with a performance Pacquiao did alongside comedian Will Ferrell.
Having one non-singer is bad, having two is really awful, and having one of the most over-played songs of all time really doesn't do this any favours.
Enjoy something that we suspect you won't be wanting a second dose of!
