Yusuf/Cat Stevens some song you grow to enjoy

Some of his song was very melodic and original, will capture your heart in an instant. Some of his song you think its kinda boringly repetitive, but after many years of living and enduring the hardship, you start to change and you turn to enjoy the song you thought were boring, and you see the hidden substance.

The fist song of his that I fall in love with was "morning has broken". A haunting melody and a perfect musical arrangement. The guitar strumming accompanying with a stream of talking piano. Soon as it end the rewind button was hit and almost precisely at the beginning the stop button push and the strumming continue, those was the time of tape recording, to play back a song you'll need some time, but we done sweat the delay in anticipation, and the song get imprinted in the mind.

morning has broken

Used to savor his deep accent of folk, almost like tasting honey which is too sweet, listening to his folk song which is too folksy.

Sometime I wonder, maybe he is a better song writer than singer. The song he wrote make others more famous than he does. Of course to some part of the world he is too famous to surpass, but to the commercial scene some may not know his effort was the power behind very famous singer or should I say very rich singer, sometime with only one of his song bring to others maybe millions.

Patiently listen through these, the deliciousness will slowly seep and you could taste the rare 70's sweetness.

And this has gone through to the 80's, still famous, still making money for someone else.

Once in a while some disco song come along and easily becoming popular. The style of this song is nothing new, fill with stain of the 70's. Even the halfway rap like male voice sound like reggae. enjoyable song, again feelings of the 70's floating around.

Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson (born October 25, 1984), known professionally as Katy Perry, well this song may sound like she is taking a tricky path through the swamp, but with only one song may not reveal her true talent, she actually can write some pretty good stuff. 

But always with a little upbeat disco style is easier to gain popularity.

This girl has potential, but looks like she knows too well which one can sell which one not. I think she deliberately avoid putting up any artistic and deep stuff and run the risk of not selling well. Yeah, what good is deep sounding song if it cannot spread wide enough. Hope some day I might hear some really innovative stuff from her, she really has the potential to do that.

This one sounds like she purposely held back the climax, and hovering around what is not coming out and savoring tj sensual anticipation.

Listen to this one, how she play around with her voice, coming out from many ways, I can almost see a Madonna emerging. I wish for her the success of all she can achieves.

For those who been through the time of "muhhibah"

This song is so touching for me, I'd been through the era of Malaysia in the aura of"muhhibah" ( Harmony ). Since when did this vision been worn out, nobody have any idea, because it happens gradually, just like the story of the frog being cooked slowly in a gradually heating up water, even though the story may not be true but it reflects the situations of Malaysian, but with this song, we can see that there lives among Malaysians  who remembers those bonding we use to have. These people are trying to bring back our brotherly bond that buried deep in our society, which is now being purposely divided to serve someone's political ambition.

The scene that children playing paper football game brings back memories of our past, used to be no electronic devices with games, the only electronic device that carry entertaining function is the radio. Those time we used to listen to song from beginning till the end, but nowadays we don't do that anymore, so songs don't leave much impressions don't carry much emotions and feelings, the songs may still be of great quality like this one but we find it more difficult to sing along nowadays, because we are in a hurry, and that kills the deliciousness of a song which when brew long enough in our ears long enough will sink in our heart forever.
