My Valentine *


As much as I love my English songs, there are times when I fall madly and deeply head over heels with a certain Malay number. This does not happen very often but when it does, it means I am totally besotted and impressed. The song has got to linger in my mind even after it's over and it's usually one that I fall in love with at first listen. Lyrics also play a vital part; I'm usually drawn to words that though appear simple and straightforward actually hold the deepest of meaning and emotions within.

Just like this song by Aizat for instance. I first heard his Lagu Kita number during the finale of TV3's Anugerah Juara Lagu (AJL) and loved it
instantly! Discovered in a reality TV program Akademi Fantasia (AF), this twenty year old lass is making waves in the local scene with his talent, which he beautifully showcased in Lagu Kita as sole composer, lyricist and singer. Though Lagu Kita did not win the ballad category it was nominated for, this talented singer made history as the youngest ever composer to make it to the finale of the prestigious AJL.

Watch this first video in order to understand the story behind his song. We see a young Aizat falling in love with a beautiful girl. He ends up breaking both their hearts when he leaves her behind to pursue his music broad. In one last attempt to win back her love, he writes her a song aptly titled Lagu Kita (Our Song).
Upon listening to their song she realizes the intensity of her feelings for him and rushes off to the airport, hoping to stop him from leaving. As most love in disarray stories go, she arrives a few minutes too late and the video ends with a To be Continued.





Lagu Kita continues his love story from where we left it earlier. There is no available music video for this song, but you get to hear Aizat's beautiful rendition at AJL. I just love the lyrics for this song. It's all stated ever so simply and yet the impact of his chosen words come off with such intensity it takes me back to our love story too. My favourite part of the song is when he goes 'Dan aku terus menyanyi lagu ini untukmu, walau berjuta mendengar, lagu ini hanya untukmu', which basically means that though he continues to sing for a million others, his words and his love remains solely for her. :)




I can't seem to get this song out of my head. The more it plays in my mind, the more convinced I am that this is the
song I'd like to dedicate to B this Valentine's Day. So though the 14th is still a couple of days away, I would like to give this song to my darling B today. Happy Valentine's Day sweetie, this one's for you! With each passing year, I love you more and more...

Lagu Kita by Aizat

Deras hati ku berdetar
Di langit aku terlihatkanmu

Terang malam…. teman kita
Dengan angin meniup sayu

Ku petik gitar akustik ini
Dengan harapan dia mendengar
Melodi indah yang ku cipta
Hanya untuk luahkan rinduku padanya

Dan aku terus…
Menyanyi lagu ini untukmu
Walau berjuta mendengar
Lagu ini hanya untukmu
Arah hidup kita
Digambar bintang di angkasa
Dan berkelip melukis cinta
Terciptalah Lagu Kita

Melodi indah yang ku cipta
Hanya untuk luahkan rinduku padanya





MPG LOVES

Hi Marzie.
Just saw your drop in my inbox, I guess you´re online doing your chores.
Wow, soo romantic. Love is in the air...
As expected, didn´t understand a word but I liked it. It´s very melodic and we can clearly see he´s making an effort to tell her he loves her :)
Happy Wednesday!
Hugs from your Portuguese friend xx

I like some Malay songs too! Especially those from Indonesia. Btw, I listen to Siti Nurhaliza, Sheila Majid, Adibah Noor, Faizal Tahir, Ferhad, Kris Dayanti, Melly Goeslaw, Peter Pan, Samsons etc. etc... Wonder if I listen to more Malay songs than you. Haha!
