Getaran Jiwa

P. Ramlee's seminal rendition of Getaran Jiwa never gets old.

The soundtrack is much better on this one, though:

Lyrics from here:

Getaran jiwa
Melanda hatiku
Tersusun nada
Irama dan lagu
Walau hanya sederhana
Tetapi tak mengapa
Moga dapat membangkitkan
Sedarlah kamu wahai insan
Tak mungkin hilang
Irama dan lagu
Bagaikan kembang
Sentiasa bermadu
Andai dipisah
Lagu dan irama
Lemah tiada berjiwa

Thank you! Been ages since I heard this song. A blast to my past indeed.

Those were the days when we need not have to have 1Malaysia.

Bought some P Ramlee's DVDs at Tesco. The Malay cashier looked at as as if that it is strange for a chinese family to buy such DVDs. Maybe I should have told her that P Ramlee's movies are in black and white and that we were colourblind in the past. Glad that my teenager son enjoys P Ramlee's movies

Similarly, at the pasar malam when my wife bought some ulam and the trader remarked "Cina pun tau makan ulam ?"

Have to make the last lap of what's left for this year's buka puasa food as our family always enjoy the food but my apologies to my muslim friends that we eat earlier.
