Comfort in childhood memories
My childhood is filled with fun and long family road trips. We’re in Singapore so naturally any adventurous road trips will involved crossing the causeway into Johor, Malaysia. The long two lane snake roads that seems to stretched forever covered by the thick oil palm plantations. It’s quite a beautiful scene. In the car, my Dad will always have Ron Goodwin’s ‘Music for an Arabian Night’ CD on the stereo and the music really sets you down into a, what I call, cool blue mood. It’s like wearing polarized shades on a sunny day, you feel like you’re in a totally different reality. A calmer one.
Anyway here’s one of my favorite tune from the CD;
This is the song I absolutely adore. As some of you Singaporeans might have already realized, yes, this is the song that is usually played after Warna 94.2 Mahgrib Azan.
I’m very happy that I managed to find this old CD. Whenever I’m not feeling at my best, this song certainly provides a uplifting feel. Alhamdullilah for providing me with such beautiful memories for me to seek comfort in.
