Aku dan Love
Sometimes in your life, there will be that particular song that you don’t mind spamming the replay button over and over again. Maybe the song is so catchy, maybe the singer looks make your heart melt, maybe the singer inspires your life. Same goes to me, my current favorite song at the moment is Appy’s Aku Dan Love. The irresistable saxophone solo, Appy’s great voice and awesome song arrangement, made this song is fit to any romantic and beautiful occasion.
Appy was my colleague in a logging company from 2008 to early 2010. Appy, me and some other colleagues was the crazy bunch in the company, the office scene will be boring without us. Earlier before I even met him, he was once the band leader of Sabah rock band COSMIC, competing in Hitz.tv’s BlastOff! competition. After we left the company, Appy continued to move forward in his singing career, and after much hardship, he finally made his solo EP under Noisy Lions recording label. Appy’s songs are more towards Jazz and R&B fusion genre now, which is pretty cool by the way, it matches his versatile voice perfectly.
Appy’s EP album, Happy Thoughts was launched on May 27, 2012, it was a very successful and enjoyable event for me. Big thanks to these local artists Jasmine Nicole Yong, U’KayKay’Le, The Dang Bandangs and Beverly Rachel (featuring The JADE sisters, Joan and Amy Moo) who came up and performed for the opening acts.
They made sure to heat up the event before Appy took over the stage. We were all swept away by his performance, he sang a few cover songs in his own unique renditions and also songs from his EP. The crowd even cheered for an encore, so Appy decided to sing a few more songs before the event ends.
Although I was tired from covering an earlier event, East Meets West, I enjoyed so much in this event that I forgot my tiredness.
Lets listen to his first single (and also my favorite song) from his EP, Aku Dan Love
Aku Dan Love
Membuatku terbingung selalu,
Terkadang lena ulitku terbuai merdu,
Membuatku terbingung selalu,
Terkadang resah jiwaku,
Cinta.. Bagaikan syurga dunia,
Ku mencinta..kurenang lautan bara,
Ku di cinta..indahnya sinar sang suria,
Ku tercinta..jangan pernah kau tinggalkan diriku…
