teenage Gil Ofarim

Who here remembers Gil? Raise your hand please? Am I the only one? ๐Ÿ˜ฎย Gil Ofarim was one of my teenage crushes. That blue-eyed, blond-haired and left-handed (just like me!)ย German singer/songwriter/musician. He was popular for his collaboration with The Moffatts on the single If You Only Knew. I remember having both his solo albums Here I Am and The Album. He formed a band after that, Zoo Army then Acht, but I’ve kinda lost interest by then and moved on (move on talaga ha?). Anywho. I am not quite sure why I started looking for news about him earlier, but I did anyway and when I saw his recent photos I was like, whoa! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Ooooh, why so hot, Gil? *fans my face* So now I am so totally fangirling on him once more! OMG. And his voice is even better. So much better. Like, real husky and all sorts of smoky and sexy and all. *fans my face again* ย So it really shouldn’t have been such a surprise for me that he was a contestant at theย The Voice of Germanyย (Season 2) last year. Here is his Blind Audition. Man, does he soundย gooood.ย Check him out:

And here’s his rendition of that iconic Goo Goo Dolls song, Iris:

I ended up searching for and downloading his new songs. Fangirl much, right? ๐Ÿ˜€

How about you, who is your teenage crush? Is he still crushable today? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. I remember watching Eat Bulaga in Broadway Centrum where he performed live! Is that enough proof that I was a fan? ๐Ÿ˜› Grabe, sya na ba talaga yan???

    1. I wasn’t even aware that he was in the country until my stalking research earlier. ๐Ÿ˜› And yes ooooh yes, that is him now! Quite the hunky hottie, right? ๐Ÿ˜€ At me angle pa na parang si Kurt Cobain. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. OMG… buhay pa si gil ofarim! i’ve been wondering what happened to him as well. shiyeeet, walang volume ang office PC ko. i will listen to his rendition of iris when i get home. shiyeeet, one of my favorite songs ever pa naman.

    1. Natawa naman ako pagbabasa ng comment mo sis. Nice to know I’m not the only one that enthusiastic about him. ๐Ÿ˜€ So, you got to listen to him? Whatcha think? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. Well, I’m still fangirling with you! lol I’ve been in love with Gil for like 14 years now and he just keeps getting hotter and hotter and hotter! I’m so jealous of his girlfriend Verena. She sure is lucky because I honestly think he’s the SEXIEST MAN ALIVE. I thought he was 14 years ago and I still think he is. Sure, there are other hot guys out there, but Gil is the ultimate for me and no one quite compares to him. He tries to cover up his beauty with the beard and the nose ring, but I just think he’s gorgeous no matter what he does. I LOVE HIM! hehehe

  4. yep i thought of what happened to him from time to time… but it never occured to me that he’ll be this hot. i always see him as the handsome boy next door.
    well yes very much kurt cobain and not to mention that they’re both left handed (glad to be lefty too).
