MAMBO KINGS?

MAMA AND OLD SONGS...

Apparently,Mama had finished her 5th time watching the Mambo Kings. Maybe due to Antonio Banderas cute face? Haha... Nope.


Mama is a fan of old songs. You could hear her humming away while washing dishes or preparing the food. And it's a wonder she got a voice that suites all the oldies song.

It reminds me when I'm in the car with her. Usually the IKIM.fm or KLASIK.fm. I could get through if it's IKIM but KLASIK? Seriously man...

I could suddenly hummed the 'Engkau Laksana Bulan' by P. Ramlee. Err... is that me hummming? (x nak mengaku lg tu dh terhafal..hehe...)

BIG,BLACK ROUND RECORDS...


But,I could never disagree with Mum that it is a beautiful song. And a good movie too. Those days,(the 60s,70s and 80s) Their songs are soulful and alive. Deep with meanings.

I know a lot of people who love the 'irama Melayu lama' and still have the big,black round records in their house. I can't blame then. Once in a while I tune in to the oldies too. And their songs,simple and full of soul. Just a nice written loveable lyrics.

Maybe I'm just a simply nostalgia oldies songs lover. Or maybe,I just got back from my mum's favourite old memory lane.

To mum: Mum,you're just sentimental aren't you? Whatever it is,I still sayang Mama...hihihi...

From Los Lobos,

Beautiful Maria of My Soul,

In the sunlight of your smile
In the summer of our life
In the magic of love
Storms above scattered away


Lovers dreaming in the night
Reaching for paradise
But as the dark shadows fade
Love slips away


On an empty stretch of beach
In the pattern of the waves
Drawing pictures with my hand
In the sand, I see your face

Skipping pebbles on the sea
Wishing for paradise
Sand castles crumble below
The restless tides ebb and flow

Listening to a shell
Hoping for your voice
Beautiful Maria
of my soul
Though we'll always be apart
Locked forever in a dream
If I ever love again
Even then, nothing will change

And the taste of you remains
Clinging to paradise
But as the distance from you grows
All that my heart ever knows

Hunger for your kiss
Longing for your touch
Beautiful Maria
of my soul


Filling all my nights
Haunting all my days
Beautiful Maria
of my soul

Aku tidak seusia mama kamu, tetapi aku juga punya kesukaan yang sama. Mendengar lagu2 lama yang wujudnya sebelum wujudku ke dunia. Aku juga penggemar Beethoven, Mozart, Nina Simone dan beberapa orang yang tidak ku kenal rupa parasnya tetapi jatuh cinta dengan lagunya.. :)

Salam Ayong,

Hehe.Sy singgah ke blog utk tgk sushi kemudian sudah mengidam pula. Teringat juga waktu mula2 nasyid popular di Malaysia. Sy rindu pd kumpulan Raihan dan kini Rabbani jadi kegemaran. Tahniah IKIM.fm krn memahsyurkan nasyid!!
