No deaths, no guts, no terrifying twists and turns, and yet I'm Drunk, I Love You left us grieving for those times we crossed the tightrope between love and friendship. But don't get me wrong, this movie is not all about missed chances and platonic-ish attractions, it's about complications—the magic of it, the music of it all.

Music has been vital in pushing the movie's plot forward. OPM songs performed by Carson (Maja Salvador), Dio (Paulo Avelino), and indie artists like Iego Tan/Shirebound and Busking and Juan Miguel Severo added layers of emotion to every major turning point in the movie. Who among us who have once held on to something we thought was real did not push back tears when we heard them sing "Dito na ba tayo babababa? Kay haba pa ng kalsada?" from the song "Hanggang Dito na Lang" by Jimmy Bondoc?
Here are some of the best songs featured on I'm Drunk, I Love You, a film directed by J.P. Habac based on the screenplay of Giancarlo Abrahan .
