    Wink You Didn't Read, Did Ya?

    Try as I might, I can't name even one song that can make me weep
    However, I can think of quite a few singers that can make me weep

    Weeping?
    Where?
    Who?

    In fact, I said 'Anak' makes me stop and listen
    I also said that there's no song that makes me weep

    It's a joke, and my apology to Oldhand, who made me weep more than the song did

    Are you referring to that song by Petrina Fung Bo Bo when she sang it when she was about 6?

    For starters, this song by Iwan Fals does it for me...
    "Belum ada judul"

    The language is not native to me, but I think the translation would run as such;

    "As yet untitled"
    We once toiled (together),
    trapped in the bitter cold of night
    Slipping into potholes on the street,
    tripped-up by the uncompromising hands of time
    Enchanted by beautiful dreams .....(slumber)

    We did once feel,
    the torrid heat inscribe wretched anger in our hearts,
    very nearly rendering us sceptics
    The wheel of fortune continues spining
    Dear friend, do you recollect?....(you)

    * And as days passed,
    you eventually left with brooding vengence
    in your heart...

    (I'd) been walking along in solitude for long enough,
    without a mate who'd care to comprehend,
    until we met today
    Your piercing eyes penetrate my soul
    you bring me to my senses....(sober)



    Please pardon the sub-par translation...

    Found the translation to the song "Father's grassland, mother's river" on web. There are two versions I have heard, one sang by male and the other female. The latter was more sad to listen. To those wandering and searching souls, away from their birthplaces or ancestral homes ...

    Father's Grassland, Mother's River

    Inner Mongolia News 2004-08-22 06:28

    Words: Xi Murong Tune: Wulan Tuga

    When father described the fragrance of grassland,
    He could not forget it even far away from it.
    Mother was glad to tell me the vast and mighty river,
    Which runs through Mongolian Plateau, my far away hometown.

    Now I see this vast land,
    Now I stand on the fragrant grassland, tears out of my eyes.
    Rivers are singing the blessing of ancestors,
    Which protects the wandering children to find the way home.

    Ah, father's grassland,
    Ah, mother's river.
    Although I can not use my mother tongue to tell is all,
    Please accept my sorrow and my joy.

    I am a child of Mongolian Plateau, too,
    With one song deep in my heart,
    In which there are father's grassland and mother's river.

    Ah, father's grassland,
    Ah, mother's river.
    Although I can not use my mother tongue to tell is all,
    Please accept my sorrow and my joy.

    I am a child of Mongolian Plateau, too,
    With one song deep in my heart,
    In which there are father's grassland and mother's river.

    I am a child of Mongolian Plateau, too,
    With one song deep in my heart,
    In which there are father's grassland and mother's river.

    La...la...la... la...

    Not at all... many people make me weep by their singing
    You're welcome to experience that for yourself
    (... and remember to keep some tissues handy)
    Sample 1
    Sample 2
    Sample 3
    Of course, the last one is a classic that will make anyone cry

    One and only! "I'll see you in my dreams"
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Mu8D69uxA0
    Here is the lyric.

    Though the days are long,
    Twilight sings a song,
    Of the happiness that used to be;
    Soon my eyes will close,,
    Soon I'll find repose,
    And in dreams you're always near to me.''

    I'll see you in my dreams,
    Hold you in my dreams;,
    Someone took you out of my arms,
    Still I feel the thrill of your charms!,

    Lips that once were mine,
    ''Tender eyes that shine,
    They will light my way tonight,
    I'll see you in my dreams!''
