Happy New Year And Selamat Tinggal

Happy New Year! And I hope I’m not being too ironic to start it off with a “Selamat Tinggal” (that’s “goodbye” to you non-Bahasa speaking people).

This mashup features Nikki (of Malaysian Idol fame) with her latest single “Selamat Tinggal”, Shazzy with “Kenapa” and Christina Aguilera with “Genie In A Bottle”. For once, I really wanted to do a mash that can tell a story from a lyrical standpoint rather than just slapping songs that fit together musically. So it took me awhile indeed to complete this one as compared to the previous mashes that I’ve done. Heck! Some parts even went through a re-recording! (Thanks much, Shazzy!)

I owe lots to Pam Yuen, Audi Mok and Shazzy for the guidance and most of all, the permission to do this! I should also thank the production team for Christina Aguilera’s Genie In A Bottle but I might end up making this entry sound like the acknowledgement section you usually see on those CD inserts.

    shazee & pam: i had a great songs to mash with in the first place and greater people who were kind enough to guide me along the way (i.e. "oi! you’re mashing in the wrong key-lah!") i’m just glad the mash didn’t make a mess of the original songs. many thanks once again!

    mr. manager: uh oh. so should i be on the run now or work with the lawyers to get clearance? *grin*

    isam: many thanks, dude! credit is due to the original artists of the songs. :)

    I like Genie in the Bottle from the beginning and this mash rocks!! Its also like Destiny’s Child ‘No no no’ was more popular as the upbeat when originally it was made in slow tempo. Too bad we won’t be hearing this on stage anywhere unless of course the producers buy up the license for Genie. hehe…
