Dear UP Diliman Carillonneur,
I love carillons.
In fact, I want one for myself.
I love the fact the UP Diliman has one (a functional/working one). When I first heard the UP Diliman Carillon being played in 2008 (I was a freshman then), I almost cried. No kidding. Who would have thought that the lifeless odd structure beside the University Theater is actually alive? I was so amazed. I was so moved by that indescribable sound from the Carillon that can be heard all over the campus. It’s not a set of bells cling-clanging. It’s different. It’s wonderful. It’s simply sublime.
I know that there are only few carillonneurs in the country. And I also know that there are also few carillons in the metro. So I am wishing, hoping, and prayer that you grant this simple wish of a carillon lover.
All I want for Christmas is for you to play a Lady Gaga song, preferably Bad Romance, on the UP Diliman Carillon. Please, please, please, and please. Pretty please with cherries on top.
I will forever be grateful if you grant this wish of mine to hear a Lady Gaga song being played on the UP Diliman Carillon. If you can play a Beatles song on the carillon, why not play a Lady Gaga song? Sige na, please?
I just want this thing to happen in UP Diliman. I promise to sing and dance while you play Bad Romance on the carillon. Promise.
Thank you, thank you, and thank you.
PS: Please inform me when you’re going to play a Lady Gaga song so that I’ll know when to cut class. Thanks! 🙂
PPS: I’m so tempted to write you a formal letter requesting that you play a Lady Gaga song on the UPD Carillon. Maybe I should ask the Carillon guard give it to you. Hmmm… Good idea? Yes? But I hope this open letter will reach you. I hope this would suffice. 😀
