In a few days’ time, it will be 31 August, representing independence day for Malaysia on 31 August 1957. May the country & its citizens continuously be showered in blessings during these challenging times.
One catchy song evoking patriotism is Tanggal 31 – popularised by Sudirman Arshad in the 1980s. The original song is actually composed by another singer, Ahmad CB (non-Malaysian too!), with a slower marching tempo. However, the faster version as sung by the great performer Sudirman is etched forever in memories.
Tanggal tiga puluh satu (31), bulan lapan (8) lima puluh tujuh (57)
Merdeka, merdeka, tetaplah merdeka
Yang pasti menjadi sejarah
Tanggal tiga puluh satu (31) bulan lapan (8) lima puluh tujuh (57)
Hari yang mulia, hari bahagia
Sambut dengan jiwa yang merdeka
Mari kita seluruh warga negara
Ramai-ramai menyambut hari merdeka
Tiga satu bulan lapan lima puluh tujuh
Hari mulia negaraku merdeka
