Did you know it only took one guitar riff to spark the whole tone for the song?

For fans of Callalily, a riff is all it takes to be transported back in time. “Magbalik” is arguably the band’s biggest song, and its guitar intro is perhaps one of the most unmistakable in all of modern OPM.

In this OG video exclusive, band members past and present give us a peek into the making of the music. From a fateful jeepney ride and a late-night songwriting session, to romantic entanglements and input from a left-handed guitar player, the boys break down the track and lets us in on how exactly their massive hit “Magbalik” came to life. Aside from their inspiring back story, they share the meaning behind its music video, and how newer fans are discovering the band and sharing their own experiences through the song.
