Siapa kata Bahasa Melayu tidak boleh pergi jauh?
Raymond Crooke, warganegara Britain telah menyanyikan lagu lagenda terkenal di Malaysia iaitu P.Ramlee dan Sudirman. Ini memang membuktikan bahasa dan lagu kita boleh pergi jauh dan diterima oleh orang luar. Ini suatu yang membanggakan.
Berikut adalah sedikit info tentang hasil kerja beliau yang dipetik daripada laman youtube
For my Malaysian friends.

Tan Sri P. Ramlee (1929-73) was a famous Malaysian actor, film director and songwriter. He wrote over 360 songs, most of which were used in his movies.

This song, one of his most popular, is from the 1960 movie, Antara Dua Darjat (The Two Classes).

I found it quite difficult to learn this song, as it is not my usual style, but it was a request, so here it is at last. I hope I’ve got it right.

The words mean something like this:

The stirring of my soul
Bathes my heart with emotion,
By the arranged notes
Of rhythm and song.
If it is only modest,
It doesn’t matter.
Perhaps it could awaken you.
Realise this, good man.

Never will they vanish,
Rhythm and song.
Like blossoms,
They will linger forever.
If you separate
The song and the rhythm,
They’ll be weak and soulless
And empty.

Video ke 2 ini pula adalah ‘cubaan’ seorang pemuda Romania bergelar Mr. Avamon menyanyikan lagu ‘Cuba’ oleh Faizal Tahir. Wah! Tak sangka penyanyi yang cukup popular di Malaysia, Indonesia dan Singapura ini juga mempunyai peminat di Romania. Haha.

Saya bangga menjadi Anak Malaysia. Saya juga bangga dengan Bahasa Ibunda saya. Anda bagaimana?
