Do You Like Malay Songs?

I am a Chinese but I listen to Malay songs. Some of my Chinese friends think I'm weird, but I don't see anything wrong with that!

Music is music! Whether it is Chinese, Malay or Indian music, they are music all the same! To me, music transcends all languages!

I wonder how come my Chinese friends listen to English songs then? Should I say they are weird then?

I think we do have a lot of nice Malay songs and we only need to expose ourselves to these songs to appreciate them. To me, the more I listen to a song, the more I like it. But of course, after some time, I will get bored and that's when I switch to another song! Haha!

I even sing Malay songs in karaoke much to the amazement (or disbelief?) of my Chinese friends. Well, they sing mostly Mandarin songs, which I love too, but Malay songs are really not that bad!

I also like songs sung by Indonesian artistes like Kris Dayanti, Samsons and Peterpan. These Indonesians singers are really a talented lot!

But since I'm a Malaysian, I'll talk about Malaysian singers today. There's one Malaysian singer whom I really admire and she is none other than the famous Siti Nurhaliza! She has a great voice and good looks but what I find amazing is that she is able to maintain her popularity for such a long time!

Although I do not fancy all her songs, this is her one song that I really, really like! It's called "Bukan Cinta Biasa" which translates to "Not An Ordinary Love".

Enjoy the video and have a great week, everyone! : )



Lyrics
Begitu banyak cerita
Atas sebab ada duka
Cinta yang ingin ku tulis
Bukanlah cinta biasa

Dua keyakinan beza
Masalah pun takkan sama
Ku tak ingin dia ragu
Mengapa mereka selalu bertanya

Cintaku bukan di atas kertas
Cintaku getaran yang sama
Tak perlu di paksa
Tak perlu di cari
Kerna ku yakin ada jawabnya...ohhh

Andai ku bisa merubah semua
Hingga tiada orang terluka
Tapi tak mungkin,
Ku tak berdaya
Hanya yakin menunggu
Jawabnya

Janji terikat setia
Masa mengupas segala
Mungkin dia kan berlalu
Ku tak mahu mereka tertawa

Diriku hanya insan biasa
Miliki naluri yang sama
Tak ingin berpaling
Tak ingin berganti
Jiwa ku sering saja berkata..ohh

Andai ku mampu mengulang semula
Ku pasti tiada yang curiga
Kasih kan hadir
Tiada terduga
Hanya yakin menunggu
Jawapan...

Cintaku bukan di atas kertas
Cintaku getaran yang sama
Tak perlu di paksa
Tak perlu di cari
Kerna ku yakin ada jawabnya...ohhh

Andai ku bisa merubah semua
Hingga tiada orang terluka
Tapi tak mungkin
Ku tak berdaya
Hanya yakin menunggu
Jawabnya...ohhh

Diriku hanya insan biasa
Miliki naluri yang sama
Tak ingin berpaling
Tak ingin berganti
Jiwa ku sering saja berkata..ohh

Andai ku mampu pulang semula
Ku pasti tiada yang curiga
Kasih kan hadir
Tiada terduka
Hanya yakin menunggu
Jawapan...

    I don't specifically listen to Malay songs but I do agree that some of them are really nice even oldies by P Ramlee.

    Wait I'm listening to it right now.

    I'm sure some malay songs would be nice but sadly I haven't got much exposure so I don't know which ones are good.

    Which also means you should try out Music Monday so you can share the nice malay songs with us all XP

    July 15, 2009 at 1:07 AM
  6. JL said...

    Oh this one. I think this song is great, as is (Datuk) Siti Nurhaliza hehe.

    I think it would help our international friends if there are English translations for the song. :)

    happysurfer, congrats you are FC here today!

    MM? I don't join MM! : )

    Yes, some Malay songs are nice and yes, P Ramlee's songs are classics! Love them! : )

    JL, FC2? Yes, you are FC2 but too lazy to put the linky love! Sorry! Only FC on my blog, don't want to set a precedent if not, later I will have to do FC3 as well!

    You don't listen to Malay songs? Too occupied with Korean songs? LOL!

    MM? Maybe I will try in future but not now. Thanks for recommending!

    English translation is nice, but I think my BM not so good so not able to do the translation. Maybe you can help? : )

    July 15, 2009 at 2:00 AM

    she sings good! I don't mind other songs whether it's from whatever country as long as it sounds good to me. In fact I love Japanese songs! I sing along with Jap songs even at work...one time boss even heard me and he was just smiling at me. Hehe wasn't aware I was quite loud coz I was wearing my headset! ahahahaha

    July 15, 2009 at 7:35 AM
  16. Mariuca said...

    Oh Indonesian singers are awesome, most of them... I love Dewa and Samsons! :)

    Good morning Foong. this is one of my faves from CT.

    July 15, 2009 at 7:58 AM
  18. Life Ramblings said...

    i enjoyed most of hers songs. they are pleasant and soothing to the ears. and i like annuar zain too.

    July 15, 2009 at 7:59 AM
  19. betchai said...

    i enjoyed listening to her sing, what a beautiful voice, though i did not know any of the lyrics, but i can tell the tune is so heartelt.

    July 15, 2009 at 8:03 AM
  20. reanaclaire said...

    last time when i was in my teens, yes, i listened to malay songs .. now in office, still listening, not on my own accord but my malay colleagues on their channel whole day long.. so sort of immune to them... but like u, Siti is still the best of all.. she has a very sweet sweet voice..

    July 15, 2009 at 8:08 AM
  21. Che-Cheh said...

    I like old Malay songs like Lagenda, Isabella and a few I can't remember the titles liao. Nothing wrong with liking Malay songs :)

    July 15, 2009 at 8:09 AM
  22. Tekkaus said...

    I like Malay songs too...but mostly from Indonesian. :D Maybe because their "malay" voice is better and more ear-tendering. LOL :P

    July 15, 2009 at 8:27 AM
  23. Tekkaus said...

    Some Malaysian Malay songs are great...for example Kenangan Terindah, Belaian Jiwa etc. But not all lar. IMHO, some Malay songs in Malaysia are so damn irritating. All they do is screaming. Haha :D

    July 15, 2009 at 8:28 AM
  24. Tekkaus said...

    Kau Terintimewa by Adibah Noor is really awesome too. But I love Indon' Sheila On 7's songs. For example...Sophia and....a lot...a lot more. :D

    July 15, 2009 at 8:31 AM
  25. khengsiong said...

    I did listen to Malay songs and some Indian songs when I was a kid. Sudirman was my favorite. But today the media is overwhelmed by music from China and Taiwan.

    Thanks to the 'mother tongue first' policy of the Chinese educationists, younger generation don't even listen to English songs. Now I hope the sudden death of MJ will open up their mind - there are more than Chinese songs.

    July 15, 2009 at 8:31 AM
  26. khengsiong said...

    P/S I am a vocal critic of those f***ing chauvinist Chinese educationists.

    Some of the malay songs are nice. I listen occasionally but I don't sing :)

    July 15, 2009 at 8:44 AM
  28. lina said...

    Like other songs, some Malay songs are nice and some aren't. I listen to them, but I hate all those sappy lovey-dovey Malay songs.

    I still like & listen to Ella & OAG the most.

    July 15, 2009 at 8:47 AM
  29. Mei Teng said...

    I must admit I am not a fan of Malay language songs. But I like Sheila Majid back then...becoz some of her songs have a jazzy feel to it. I also like gospel songs sung in the Malay language..somehow they're really nice.

    July 15, 2009 at 9:31 AM
  30. ladyviral said...

    Malay songs are ok. I am choosy with my music though. I believe I am quite different comparing with all the people I know. I used to enjoy Kamu by Nitrus and Mungkin Nanti by PeterPan (I believe they are Indonesians). When I was younger I like KRU hehe :P. But I haven't been listening to the radio to be updated with any latest songs English or Malay. Been stuck on my Smashing Pumpkins. :P

    July 15, 2009 at 9:41 AM
  31. [SK] said...

    hmmmm i seldom listen to malay songs, because not really being exposed to that.. have heard rarely a few, but interesting enough i've been listening to some Hindi songs from the blockbuster "Kuch Kuch Hota Hai" years back.. hahahaha!!

    July 15, 2009 at 10:01 AM
  32. day-dreamer said...

    Yeah I agree, some Malay songs are really nice.

    July 15, 2009 at 10:03 AM
  33. -eiling- said...

    Yeah i have to agree that some malay songs are good. Like the "Januari" sung by Glenn and also the Indonesian band Peter Pan. haha...

    July 15, 2009 at 10:40 AM
  34. VictorKiu said...

    I'm chinese but i listen to English songs. "same meaning" so nothing weird.

    Foong, you quit entrecard too?

    July 15, 2009 at 10:55 AM
  36. foongpc said...

    ayie, yes you are FC3! Congrats! : )

    Wow! You like Japanese songs? You can speak Japanese? Haha! Got carried away till didn't realise your boss was listening to you singing? I like to sing in the shower. The acoustics in the bathroom somehow makes my voice sound better! : )

    July 15, 2009 at 11:25 AM
  37. foongpc said...

    manglish, you like Siti Nurhaliza too? Gimme a five! : )

    Yes, she's good - the only thing is her singing style is the same. Maybe she should change a bit, especially the way she does those melody improvisations.

    July 15, 2009 at 11:28 AM
  38. foongpc said...

    mariuca, high 5! : ) Yes, Siti is good isn't it? I like this song a lot!! Can listen to it again and again!

    I like songs by Samsons too! Even bought their CD! : )

    July 15, 2009 at 11:29 AM
  39. foongpc said...

    life ramblings, oh, you listen to Malay songs too? Cool! This song is nice, isn't it?

    Oh, you like to listen to Annuar Zain? I'm not a fan, but I think he sings pretty well : )

    July 15, 2009 at 11:31 AM
  40. foongpc said...

    betchai, sorry did not include a translation of the lyrics in English. Too much work for me! And I'm not that good in translating anyway! LOL!

    But you know what? I'm sure you can feel the music without understanding the language right? Cos music transcends all languages! Glad you enjoyed the song! : )

    July 15, 2009 at 11:33 AM
  41. foongpc said...

    reanaclaire, wow! You are forced to listen to Malay songs day in and out in your office? Sorry about that! I think I will get fed up after a while! I like to have variety in my music. A combination of Malay, English and Chinese, and maybe some Japanese and Korean songs would be ideal for me! Haha!

    Yes, Siti does have a sweet voice : )

    July 15, 2009 at 11:35 AM
  42. foongpc said...

    che-cheh, like listening to old Malay songs? From the 60's or 80's? Yes, some are nice, but not all.

    I guess there is nothing wrong with liking Malay songs. But I tend to like any kind of songs if I listen to them long enough, except heavy metal. I can't stand heavy metal songs!

    July 15, 2009 at 11:37 AM
  43. foongpc said...

    tekkaus, I know you sure like Malay songs cos you have been reading Malay books since small! Haha!

    Yes, I love Indonesia songs too! Hey, Kenangan Terindah is a song by Samsons, an Indonesian band! Not Malaysian!

    Belaian Jiwa is excellent! A world class song which can compete with any English songs out there!

    I do agree some Malay songs are irritating. When I hear them on radio, I immediately change station! LOL!

    Terlalu Instimewa by Adibah Noor is a fantastic song! Pulled at my heartstrings everytime I hear it! And Adibah has a great voice! I like her singing as well as her comedic antics! : )

    July 15, 2009 at 11:46 AM
  44. foongpc said...

    khengsiong, wow! You are a vocal critic of those chauvinistic Chinese educationists? Really dislike them, don't you? Me too! Haha!

    A lot of my Chinese friends also listen to Chinese songs only. Even though they can speak English!

    But some of my Chinese friends love English songs, though very few like Malay songs. So in karaoke sessions, I will be the rare one who sing Malay songs! LOL!

    July 15, 2009 at 11:52 AM
  45. foongpc said...

    borneo falcon, you mean you don't sing malay songs, OR you don't sing at all?

    July 15, 2009 at 11:52 AM
  46. foongpc said...

    lina, yes I also don't really like all those sappy and lovey-dovey Malay songs! And there are lots of them on radio! When I hear them, I just change radio station! Haha!

    Hey, I like listening to Ella and to a lesser extent, OAG. Ella has a great voice and she's another artiste who lasted for a very long time! : )

    July 15, 2009 at 11:55 AM
  47. foongpc said...

    mei teng, you like jazzy songs? Sheila Majid is a good singer! I tried singing her song Sinaran once and I can tell you despite it being a simple song it's not easy to sing it! You need to have some skills to make the song sound good! After my attempt to sing that song, I realised Sheila Majid is a very talented singer.

    Maybe you like songs by Malaysian singer Zee Avi? But she sings mostly English songs. Watch her video here : )

    July 15, 2009 at 12:07 PM
  48. foongpc said...

    ladyviral, I love Mungkin Nanti by Peterpan! Even have the song as caller ringtone on my phone. Haha! Yes, Peterpan is an Indonesian band, though I think they have disbanded, if I'm not mistaken.

    You like Smashing Pumpkins? I'm not a fan but they do have some nice songs. I usually get stuck to Mariah Carey albums. She's coming out with a new album in August! Yay! : )

    July 15, 2009 at 12:11 PM
  49. foongpc said...

    SK, now why am I not surprised you listen to Hindi songs? You are after all, SK Thamby! haha!!

    July 15, 2009 at 12:12 PM
  50. foongpc said...

    day-dreamer, yeah, Malay songs can be as good as English songs, well at least some of them : )

    July 15, 2009 at 12:13 PM
  51. foongpc said...

    eiling, ooh! You like Malay songs too? Yes, Januari by Glenn Fredly is my favourite! And Mungkin Nanti by Peterpan is excellent song - definitely in my top 10 Malay songs of all time! : )

    July 15, 2009 at 12:15 PM

    victor kiu, welcome back, victor! Glad you listen to English songs too! I like Chinese songs a lot! : )

    mei teng, no I have not quit Entrecard. What makes you think I quit? Talking about Entrecard, I think I better cash out my EC points : )

    July 15, 2009 at 12:18 PM
  55. foongpc said...

    shingo T, haha! Dayung Sampan is the only Malay song you know? Aiyo! Looks like you don't listen to Malay songs lah! : )

    anton, oh Aidbah Noor is a good singer. Powerful voice! I first noticed her when she sang and acted in the Singaporean musical "Chang & Eng" which was staged at Istana Budaya many years ago. She acted as a midwife.

    I love her song "Terlalu Istimewa" - very touching song!

    Broery Marantika - yes, he's very famous in Indonesia and Malaysia as well. His songs are good! : )

    i speak just very little, I'm too much into anime before and some japanese series...that's why. Sometimes i just keep singing no matter what! bathoom acoustics is good, that's the same sound quality you'll get in a music studio. =)

  90. Ori said...

    In Indonesia, songs in Indonesia languages is not only preferred by certain ethnic group. Afaik there's no boundary, my foreign (western and eastern) friends even like some of them a lot and can sing them too :-D.
    In fact music (/song) usually becomes a medium that connects people.
    There are some Chinese Indonesia singers who make best seller songs or become famous singers, for instance, like Agnes Monica and Delon.
    I only like very very few Indonesian language songs though. But it's just preference, cause music is music.

    brian kinney, you don't really like Malay songs? Yes, I agree it's nothing weird cos music is all up to the individual's preference, just like sexual orientation right? haha! Oops! Maybe that's not a good comparison. I should say just like food. Different people like different types of food, same with music.

    Me singing this song? Tak nak! I would sound horrible especially after you've heard Siti Nurhaliza sang it! : )

    merryn, you like the old Siti? Before she got married and got her Datukship? And maybe before she started covering her head, I suppose?

    Yeah, just like some people prefer the old Mariah Carey and not the new one. I guess most of us find it hard to adapt to changes.

    I try not to focus on the singer, but on the music itself. If Siti can still give us good music, I don't really care what she does as a person.

    I've done the same with Mariah, and I find that I'm still a huge fan of her even though she's no longer the old Mariah that I knew when I first started to buy her albums : )

    I have to admit that eventho I'm Malaysian I don't actually listen to Malay songs...dunno lah. Like kurang garam only. Indonesian music is soooooo much better! But then again, that's just my opinion. :P

    Just get to bump into this blog when i search for "nice malay songs" @ google. i am a malaysian and i am truly agree with what you said. music is nice regardless of the languages. i get used to listen to japanese songs which i barely understand what they are singing.

    by the way, siti's songs ain't the cup of my tea. i prefer the rock type. for example, "itu kamu" by estranged, "lagu untukmu" by meet uncle hussain, "janjiku" by sofaz. "ketulusan hati" by anuar zain not bad as well. and some older songs like "belaian jiwa" and "kau ilhamku" are songs that must listened.

    indonesian musics also kinda nice. peterpan's songs would be first choice. "kenangan terindah" is such famous. and i like ndiji.

    however since i came to sg, i rarely listen to malay/indo music, got any nice recommendations?

    I'm from Sabah & I had moved to KL as I'm attending to UCSI University. I preferred to go to UM but my parents don't allow it as UM has no twinning system. I really love Malay songs and I'm a fan of Siti Nurhaliza, but in UCSI, it's all useless. Because most of students are Chinese. I don't say that Chinese are bad, some of Chinese are really kind, but it's probably limited in Borneo. When I was in Sabah, I always sang Malay songs. Although Chinese students were not interesting in it, but at least they didn't hate it. But here, in Kuala Lumpur, it's quite different. When I said I'm a fan of Siti Nurhaliza, first time my new friends liked it. They came from Perak. But soon, they changed their mind. In Sabah, my schoolmate wanted to befriend me when I sang Malay songs, but here, when I said I'm a fan of Siti Nurhaliza, soon they didn't want to befriend me. If I went to UM, most of students are Malay & they would befriend me, but UCSI is different. Most of students are Chinese & they hate Malay. I don't know why. As a Malaysian, I'm angry why some Chinese refuse Malay. I just want to tell them, why don't you move to Singapore or China? In America, all races are different, but they never refuse American culture. But in Malaysia, why lots of people refuse Malay culture? Ridiculous.
