“Reformasi” has been the rallying slogan for the Pakatan Rakyat (PR) this coming general elections, in a hope to usher in a new era of positive and much needed reforms in Malaysia.
Here I share 2 songs created along the message of “reform” that aims to capture the positive spirit of change, with great hints of hope in them.
Earlier, I shared the Democratic Action Party’s campaign theme songs in another blogpost.
Reformasi by Yasin Sulaiman
I was told that this song was created for the PR Convention, and that Yasin Sulaiman is a famous Malaysian singer.
I think this song is pretty good…
Semarak Reformasi – the PKR’s campaign theme song
This clip starts with a brief introduction to the history of Parti Keadilan Rakayt (PKR), which Anwar Ibrahim leads. (Can Anwar be the next PM? Checkout my earlier blogpost.) Hence this clip is also a good recap on the tumultuous history of PKR.
This clip features Anwar quite prominently, and no doubt it creates the hope for reforms!
