And almost every year, there will be new lagu-lagu raya by different singers, some are popular, some are not. Regardless of who singing those new songs, most of the songs don't come out as popular as the old lagu-lagu raya. Those songs, I tell you, are evergreen. Tak lekang dek panas, tak lapuk dek hujan.
I don't remember all the songs, but I sure find myself singing along sometimes when the songs are played on the radio. But I do have one or two songs that I personally like. =P Those songs are Cahaya Aidilfitri by Black Dog Bone, Balik Kampung by Sudirman and Gema Takbir by Raihan & Nowseeheart.
Black Dog Bone..what a name. And for such a band with that name to play lagu raya, I found it really weird the first time I learned that the song was by that band. The name is seriously and does sound crazy, brutal, rock kapak, but then they sang a quite melancholic lagu raya. LOL no offense to Black Dog Bone, the song is legend-wait for it- dary! Hehehehe.
Now that I think about it again, I don't know if Balik Kampung by Allahyarham Sudirman is a lagu raya. But heck, back when I was a kid, I saw this family listening to that song on their way back to their kampung for Hari Raya. So, I don't care if it's lagu raya or not, I'm gonna stick with what I said just now, it is lagu raya. =P
Gema Takbir by Raihan & Nowseeheart has been around in my playlist since my first year in Gippsland. I would sing out loud, along with the song. My housemates, I'm not sure if they heard me then, but heck, should have been alright, I bet they enjoyed listening to my voice LOL WTHeck! XP
I got few links to the songs I mentioned just now, so if you wanna have those songs playing on your PC, laptop or iPod, feel free to go to the links below. hehehehe
I don't know why I feel like talking about lagu raya. Heh. I am not that excited about raya, it's just the thought that I will get to celebrate raya for the first time in 3 years in Malaysia thrills me. hehehehe..
Still, selamat berpuasa dan beribadah to all Muslims out there. To all my readers, have a great day! =)
