Reput by TuLanG (feat Farah Asyikin)

Performed by : TuLanG (feat Farah Asyikin)
Lagu & Lirik :Zainal Zulia
Sajakiri Production

Mungkin ini kali yang pertama ku terdengar suara halus
Membisik namaku sehalus bayu yang bertiup

Mungkin kali ini tak dapatku bezakan mimpi atau sedar
Apa yang kupasti aku masih lagi terdengar ;

Jangan tinggalkanku, aku kesepian
Aku keseorangan, dalam kedukaan

Dengar rintihanku, dengar rayuanku
Jangan tinggalkanku, aku kesepian

Cari-cari mencari apa yang kucari akupun tak pasti
Mencari semangat diri aku yang telah hilang

Kepadamu, kumenyeru, kumerayu
Pergilah dikau jauh dariku


The Song

The rhythm inspired from Butterfingers's, "Daulat Tuanku". I wrote this song using a 'programmed' marching tempo, from my 10-years keyboard Yamaha PSR-320, pattern no 87.

I purposely attempted to write an 'odd' song, after have written so many 'standard pop rock song'. Just for the sake of art & creativity.

The Lyric

The inspiration derived from my rented house in Taman Tun Dr Ismail, back in 2004. After we live there for about 8 months (peacefully), someone told me(unintended) the house used to be a crime scene, when the previous owner committed suicide by hang himself in one of the room (probably mine!), 4 years back.

Lyric wise, i imagined entrapped body of the dead (of a beautiful woman), buried alive, underground, beneath of a flour a house. And the soul haunt U, whenever U enter the house!

The Recording

We recorded the song at Rafik Konsep Studio in 2005. Farah Asyikin, who just finished her competition in Malaysia Idol (she was in Top 3), willingly sang the song as a favour of a friend. Thank U Farah. I remembered how she asked me after listening the demo. "Lagu pebenda ni Nal?"

JD also appreciate the arrangement by quoting,
"Interesting arrangement and instrumentation you got going on there.... Unique, creative :)".
