Probably one of my most favourite songs from Achik & Nana!
Cute kan the video! Jom nyanyi! Bola Bola api!
Brings me back to my 'kental' secondary school days when I would usually sing this in class along with a few other malay friends of mine. I don't know why but it just made us feel so cool just by singing their songs, jamming to their songs in the studio and even in the karaoke room. Everyone (in my malay gang) knew them. They had hit songs after hit songs, it was impossible to not even know them at all, right? You should check out 'Hadirlah Mustika' too. Hehe. Favourite!
I also remember Suria had this countdown every single weekend and I'd watch it with my grandma and the maid, talking about the upcoming hit songs (this being one of them) and even shouting "Nenek! Tanter! Cepat! Achik dengan Nana punyer video tengah main!" And then we (at least for Tanter and I) would sing to the song, pretending we're lovers. We loooved the video for "Paling Comel". I mean, who doesn't? Haha! Aww bittersweet memories.
Their male and lead singer of Spin, Achik, recently passed on yesterday. When I read the message via twitter, it was just unbelievable. I'm a skeptic. I just found it so hard to believe that he really died. Then everyone started tweeting about his death and I saw a few news stories, which made me a believer. It was too sudden. Too random. Too fast. He didn't deserve death at such a young age. But then again, who is right to say whom deserves death? No one.
I couldn't bring myself to watch the video of his death. (Yes someone took a video of it) You can watch it if you want. I'll watch it someday, I guess. But for now, RIP Achik Spin. Your voice will always be heard everywhere. Amin. Hehe.
P.s I do listen to malay songs okay! You could say I was cool back then. :p
