AS SIMPLE AS A SONG

Listening to Kak Anit's CD that I bought last week - Memori Hit AnitaSarawak - brought back fond memories of the time when I first started working and hanging out with the bunch of crazies (err... I mean gila-gila, bukan psycho hehehe) who were among my dearest buddies. That's because most of them are older than me, and hanging out with them got me hooked on music from their era. But that's another storyfor another post :-)

What I want to share is this - Songs from yesteryears are so much more simpler, direct, sometimes totally lacking any poetic values at all, and yet they're so memorable and fun to sing!Take this song Kawanku Bintang Capricorn. So catchy, so simple, no hidden meanings. Anyone else remember this song?

Ku sangat penat menanti
Kawanku yang belum datang
Inilah masanya
Pasti sudah tiba
Sudah ku berjanji
Di panggung wayang ini
Teketnya pula
Ada ditangannya
Mungkinkah dia
Ada sesuatu menghalang
Tapi ku percaya
Dia tak akan lupa
Ku toleh ke kanan
Kawanku pun sudah datang
Simbol bintangnya
Terhias di dada
Capricorn....

If only my life these days is THAT simple *sigh*

btw, I'm not too sure about the relevance of the song's title, apa kaitan t-shirt kawan minah ni ngan the whole song?
:-)
