፨ Joy To The World

It's time to rejoice and repeat the sounding JOY to all the people in the world. Joy to the people everywhere you see, joy to you and me....

Joy To The World, Mariah Carey


Lyrics ~ Joy To The World

Joy to the world, the Lord is come!
Let earth receive her King;
Let every heart prepare Him room,
And heaven and nature sing,
And heaven and nature sing,
And heaven, and heaven, and nature sing.

Joy to the earth, the Savior reigns!
Let men their songs employ;
While fields and floods, rocks, hills and plains
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat, repeat, the sounding joy.

Joy to the World
All the boys and girls
Joy to the people everywhere you see
Joy to you and me

He rules the world with truth and grace,
And makes the nations prove
The glories of His righteousness,
And wonders of His love,
And wonders of His love,
And wonders, wonders, of His love.

Joy to the World
All the boys and girls
Joy to the people everywhere you see
Joy to you and me
Joy to the people everywhere you see
Joy to you and me

፨ Reflections of My Life

This is one of my favourite oldies, truly brings back sweet memories and I know two person who would feel the same and also to all ardent fans of Marmalade enjoy the song together. This is for you Derek Lim and Edmund Choong.

lyric - Reflections of My Life
The changing of sunlight to moonlight
Reflections of my life
Oh, how they fill my eyes
The greetings of people in trouble
Reflections of my life
Oh, how they fill my eyes
All my sorrow Sad tomorrow
Take me back to my old home
All my crying (All my crying)
Feel I'm dying, dying
Take me back to my old home
I'm changing, arranging
I'm changing, I'm changing everything
Oh, ev'rything around me, yeah
The world is a bad place
A terrible place to live
Oh, but I don't wanna die
All my sorrow Sad tomorrow
Take me back to my old home
All my crying (All my crying)
Feel I'm dying, dying
Take me back to my old home
All my sorrow Sad tomorrow
Take me back to my old home
All my crying (All my crying)

፨ Ah Lan Na - Huang Qing Yuen

For a change let us take a look down memory lane to our local Malaysian music scene and see what we have got here. Huang Qing Yuen took the local Chinese music scene by storm and practically captured the hearts of many baby boomers way back in the 60s. Almost all the contestants participating in any talentine contests then, would choose to sing his songs. I know of a buddy friend of mine, also a popular blogger, even with his handicap in Mandarin language being 'banana man' like me , has been an ardent fan of Huang Qing Yuen. Having said that would like to dedicate this song to Justin Choo and hope you continue to be his loyal & die-hard fan for a long long long time to infinity...

፨ I Write The Songs - Barry Manilow

Hi Mark @ Hot Kram, remember the good old days in A&A in the early 90s? Well my very first experience to hear my GM sang "I Write The Songs" & performed in public at a Karoke in Penang Sheraton. Phew great showmanship. This song always linger in my mind and kind of associate with this phrase "If we don't 'kill' we don't eat - get BORL" as each time we charged out of office in Wisma Manilal, Penang to secure 'BORL' (Broker Of Record Letter) we would repeat it many many times. Your policy of "When at work, we work hard and when we play, we play harder" has earned you tremendous respect. This song is for you, just for old times sake with sweet memories.

፨ Devil Woman - Marty Robbins

Mr Saw Ah Leong hope your old flame is not 'Mary' by any slim chance, here's your 'Devil Woman' by Marty Robbins...

፨ Wooden Heart, Elvis the Pelvis

"Can you see, she loves you, please don't break my bowl in two. That's not hard to do cause I don't have a woo loong heart...." Dear Marc Wan I got your message loud and clear , thought you would ask for a heart of steel or perhaps a heart of steal, instead you requested for a wooden heart. Here you go...

፨ The Young Ones

Watched this movie 'The Young Ones' with Peter Chin in early 60s in a small cowboy town called Kulim in Kedah. Name of the theatre is Coronation better known as 'Kah Men' by our old folks in Hakka dialect. The price of ticket RM0.65 shared by the two of us. We have calculated the cost if we buy two tickets for 3rd class total be RM0.80 and take chances to share one ticket at RM0.65 (those days allowed to combine two children into one adult ticket) thus with the money saved know what we would buy ? 5 sen of 'Hacks' & 10 sen of 2 packets kua chi as our usual. If full house would share the seat ,if not can have the luxury of the next seat or any other two seats available. There were three theatres then, the other two being 'Kim Wah' and Cathay. Those days we have three classes of seating, RM0.40 for 3rd class, RM0.65 for 2nd class and RM1.25 for 1st class and it was upstairs. Price of ticket as at 2008 average RM9.00 one class (Kuala Lumpur price) a whopping 620% increase in ticket price. Those days morning shows were called 'Cheap Matinee' and in this era - 'Early Bird'. Years may come years may go, live life to the fullest. Just like the song ~ "Tomorrow, why wait until tomorrow. Cos' tomorrow sometimes never come. There is a song to be sung and the best time to sing it while we're young". This song is for you Peter & brother Chin FahShin, the message is 'be young at heart even if you are at 64 or 90.' ('Noticed the font size is at its largest just in case you've got 'old flower').

፨ Bringing On Back The Good Times, The Love Affair

፨ Bringing On Back The Good Times, The Love Affair

Lyric ~ ├čRINGING ON BACK THE GOOD TIMES

Since you went away I've been losing my sleep at night
Never thought there 'd come a day
When you'd be back to make everything right
But how wrong could I be 'cos now you're here with me

{chorus}
Bringing on back the good times, taking away the pain.
You're bringing on back the good times and I'm living on air
So glad that you're there, sweeping away the sad times
Making me laugh again
You're bringing on back the good times and you started believing
Now that I'm loving again

I've never been loved by anybody that's quite like you
So when you're telling me of, all the things you want me to do
Now you've made me see what you mean to me
You're bringing on back ....
