Video: Seringkali

Taken from the Maman at Ladies at Lepaq gig on 29 May 2009. You can see more videos by subscribing to Maman’s YouTube channel, the link is provided on the right hand side of the screen.

Below, Maman’s note that comes with the video:

IA’s Note: If you would like to save this video (in Flash Movie format), I’d suggest you download and install the free version of RealPlayer (at the link, choose BASIC RealPlayer, not RealPlayer Plus)  Once you do, the top right hand corner of the video will automatically show a “Download This” button (see example below). You will be able to download all Flash Movies using it (not necessarily from YouTube but also from other sources such as Metacafe and Google Video). There are other players that you can use, but I trust and use RealPlayer coz it is stable and doesn’t contain any malicious spyware and any of those  bad things that could harm your computer.

MP3: Anugerah Cinta (Warisan Wanita 2)

Update: Thanks everyone but the download has expired. In less than 48hrs, the 100 download maximum has been reached.  Due to overwhelming requests since we will not be distributing the MP3 again, I am putting a lo-fi youtube video in here as streaming via imeem or others takes too much bandwidth. It is not much, but enough to tide you over until you get your hands on Hijrah or til the official pv comes out.  Leave a comment below if you like this.

*********************************************************************

In conjunction with the release of Hijrah, Maman is giving away the MP3 for Anugerah Cinta (Warisan Wanita 2) especially for fans outside SG who have not had the opportunity to listen to the single.

Covers: I Hung My Head – Sting

UPDATE: I have changed the original video with one that has a better audio quality but it’s still not up to scratch. I  try not to make it too high end so that the streaming time is cut down but anyway if you would like to hear the MP3 in its glory, please go to the Downloads page and get the original MP3 file there. For collaborations, please email Maman directly at mamanteacherspet@musician.org. Thanks.

====================================================

A cover of I Hung My Head by Sting (Mercury Rising). This song was made famous by the late Johnny Cash in his album American IV: The Man Comes Around (American, 2002).

Below it, how Sting sings it.

(Note: This video was purposely done in low-res to optimise space and bandwidth. For high quality MP3, please go to Downloads tab above)

I Hung My Head
Early one morning
With time to kill
I borrowed Jebb’s rifle
And sat on a hill
I saw a lone rider
Crossing the plain
I drew a bead on him
To practice my aim

My brother’s rifle
Went off in my hand
A shot rang out
Across the land
The horse, he kept running
The rider was dead
I hung my head
I hung my head

I set off running
To wake from the dream
My brother’s rifle
Went into the sheen
I kept on running
Into the south lands
That’s where they found me
My head and my hands

The sheriff he asked me
Why had I run
And then it came to me
Just what I had done
And all for no reason
Just one piece of lead
I hung my head
I hung my head

Here in the court house
The whole town was there
I see the judge
High up in the chair
Explain to the court room
What went through you mind
And we’ll ask the jury
What verdict they find

I felt the power
Of death over life
I orphaned his children
I widowed his wife
I begged their forgiveness
I wish I was dead
I hung my head
I hung my head

I hung my head
I hung my head

Early one morning
With time to kill
I see the gallows
Up on a hill
And out in the distance
A trick of the brain
I see a lone rider
Crossing the plain

And he’d come to fetch me
To see what they’d done
And we’d ride together
To kingdom come
I prayed for god’s mercy
For soon I’d be dead
I hung my head
I hung my head

I hung my head
I hung my head

Covers: Promise Her The Moon – Mr Big

Listen to Maman’s version of Promise Her The Moon by Mr Big, it is actually an MP3 but since the easiest streaming that I know is via YouTube, I embed it in here as a static video. For the downloadable MP3, please go to the Download page.

Below, lyrics and video of the song performed live by Mr Big in a concert in Japan. Coincidentally, this happens to be my favourite Mr Big song along with Goin’ Where the Wind Blows; I even blogged about it in Killing Time.

PROMISE HER THE MOON

Hey, yeah yeah
You don’t know what you’ve got
Till the love is almost gone
This time, yeah she’s given up
Still in a state of shock
I should’ve seen it coming on
It’s too late for waking up
Her mind’s made up
I know the dream is over
But my heart just can’t let go
She’s too good to be forgotten
Too good to be true
Before my world is torn apart
I’ll promise her the moon
I’ll promise her the moon
I was too blind to notice her
Wrapped up in myself
Workin’ hard overtime, night and day
I thought we were so secure
Can’ imagine someone else
Could come between us
And take her away
Her mind’s made up
I know the dream is over
But my heart just can’t let go
She’s too good to be forgotten
Too good to be true
Before my world is torn apart
I’ll promise her the moon
I’ll promise her the moon
And all the time she stood by me
I never said “I love you”
Yeah, I kept it deep down in my soul
And all the while I’ve been a fool
yeah, yeah yeah.

Covers: Kesan Di Matamu

This is may be one of Maman’s favourite covers, one that he’s performed many times in public. It was originally sung by the late Bapak Chrisye, a well-known Indonesian artiste. See the myspace tribute page to Bapak Chrisye here.

The particular video featured here was taken in 1998, at a rooftop concert organised by ROTTW magazine (which I am told is still alive and well til today, but only available in print though so no links folks). Maman was backed by a group of musicians known as Soulpilot.

Kesan di Matamu is loosely translated as Imperfections In Your Eyes.

This was how Bapak Chrisye wrote and performed the song

Unreleased: Warna Kasih

An unreleased track called ‘Warna Kasih’ (The Colour of Love), written in mid 2007. Will the full studio version ever see the light of day? Your guess is as good as mine. Transliteration and MP3 strip to follow soon.
