You know Jamilul Hayat? “Gelora Cintaku”? It’s essentially my most favourite song of the 80’s and I’m not ashamed to admit that this is the song I sang whenever I stumble upon such a poignant moment or if having a [very] difficult condition. I fell in love with this song since I was 10 (in 1988) right after enjoy seeing/reading of a cartoon (at the ‘MVGH’ section of the infamous Gelihati) associated with the lyrics of this song drawn by Yusof Osman (YO), an excellent cartoonist back in the late 80’s/early 90’s. I love the way YO illustrated the story of this song and the characters/perspectives that adorned in every single panel works well flawlessly!

Personally I’m not so sure about the date, but one thing for sure this song has something memorable about my childhood and stuffs that related.

For me, you’re not retro enough if you didn’t know about this song. Get it? So, then go figure it out, right now. Okay, you’re required to have RealPlayer to play this song by the way.



+ Okay, I noticed that .ram file above is corrupted and most probably the owner has closed the precious site entirely. But sure it’ll be a replacement, a good one I must say. Instead of a disappointment thru the previous one, now you can also get the “Gelora Cintaku” in here plus with the other songs as well by the legendary Jamilul Hayat respectively.

Smile now or never!

So to speak... Jamilul memang best. Nak dibandingkan dengan penyanyi sekarang, aku rasa dia lebih da bomb.
