Aizat's PERGI

This young man's melodious vocals has persistently haunt me since the first time I heard him sing at an event in Penang. He was a little weighty at that time, definitely no head turner, unlike others who are in the industry that he's in. He may not have the “package” but talent, he sure has loads.

Aizat is a product of the reality show Akademi Fantasia. Can't remember which season he was from. Unfortunately, this cherub face didn't gather enough sms votes to keep him long in the program. Well, that's how it works with these reality shows. The odds are in the hands of the sms senders. Never mind if you cringe audience with your croak. But if you have die hard fans by the throngs who are crazy about you and with the help of some luck, you could be driving home the up for grabs, new set of wheels or the key to that brand new apartment. Anyway, I’m not going to dwell much about these reality shows. It’s Aizat’s new song entitled PERGI that I want to share here.

First time I heard Aizat’s PERGI, it gave me the same the goose bumps I had that very moment I heard George Michael’s “Careless Whisper”. I sound so ancient now, don’t I? Anyway back to Aizat’s song. PERGI is climbing the pop charts and many radio stations are faithfully spinning this number, so much so that I now have the tune constantly playing on my mind. I learnt later that it is also the sound track of Yasmin Ahmad’s movie TALENTIME. PERGI was compose by Pete Teo, who’s known for his independently produced zero-budget, non-partisan, non-profit, multi-artists recording of his anti-racism - 'Here In My Home'.

I present you Aizat’s PERGI found on YouTube. Sit back relax and enjoy its brilliant assemblage of melodious acoustic guitar and melancholic softness of the Chinese erhu.

Hujan lebat mencurah kini
Bagaikan tiada henti
Kau lah lagu ku…kau irama terindah
Tak lagi ku dengari

Kau pergi…..pergi…

Sepi tanpa kata
Terdiam dan kaku tak daya kau ku lupa
Apa pun kata mereka
biarkan kenangan berbunga di ranting usia

So kepada sesiapa yang nak layan perasaan…..silakan…. this song is for you.
