Otak Kering (again) - New Song!

Sememangnya otakku ini takdelah basah sangat. Especially bile time2 nak cari idea, time tu la dia kering. Memang salah aku jugak kot. Expecting art to pop up. I think. I THINK. When u think too much of it, work by the rules, expecting too much from it, in the end sampai ke satu tahap they call it "writer's block". Instead, I patut ikut what Damian duk cakap "let the song grow la bro". I somehow jadi restless sebab nak siap cepat kot. haha. Teringat satu quote (yang juga merupakan quote favourite arwah Yasmin Ahmad):

"Artists today think of everything they do as a work of art. It is important to forget about what you are doing - then a work of art may happen." - Andrew Wyeth, an early 20th century American painter

So i thot, "u know wat, chill dulu." So i stopped working on the hook of the song that im working with Damian for awhile and starts listening to music. Diana Danielle pun ada mintak lagu jugak ni. Suprisingly, she's a good singer! So i start grabbing my guitar and see what i can come up for her. In the end i came up with a chorus. It sounds a bit different than what I've done before :

if u were mine.mp3 - Nabil Zamanhuri

possibly my first english number that i wrote. here's the lyrics:

If u were mine

When i see u cry,
Baby I'd die inside,
He was never really true to u,
I can see it in ur eyes..

Please tell me why
did u ever go for such ride,
Babygirl i would die for u
if only u were mine..

if only u were mine..

tak sure lagi if this song gonna make it for Diana Danielle's album or not. I just gonna submit this anyway. If not, I'mma do it for my album, cos i love it :D

Tahun ni memang ramai legends yang telah meninggalkan kita. Legend2 yang memang banyak bagi inspirasi kat aku, the reason Im doing what Im doing now.

Michael Jackon (atau Mikael? hanya Allah yang tahu)
Yasmin Ahmad
Ustaz Asri..

Mungkin ini petanda bahawa dunia hiburan akan dilanda rombakan atau evolusi (improvement atau downgrading, terpulanglah). Aku tak sure reaction dunia masa, John Lennon mati dulu, atau Elvis cos I wasn't born yet. Termasuk Allahyarham Tan Sri P.Ramlee dan Allahyarham Sudirman dulu.. But that's how the world works, i guess.. Pemergian bukan bererti kemusnahan, atau kehilangan. Delete and cancel is not the keyword here. Evolution, hopefully into something (if not better) post-legends. (sorry for the lack of a better word). From Elvis to Michael. From Tan Sri P.Ramlee to Sudirman. From Sudirman to Siti Nurhaliza.

But these legends will live through the future generations. They will always be references and inspirations for us, as u can see it through their works are mostly inspired by legends before them.

and Yasmin Ahmad will always be my inspiration in our local New Wave movies :

this one's my favourite..
