Much ado over nothing.
When I read Pasquale's comment of Malaysiakini tasking of Rosmah's and her son's rendition of Chinese songs as enticing the Chinese votes, I almost tip over in laughter.
Does Rosmah think the Chinese are the most stupid people and can be bought over for a song? Well, the people at Malaysiakini think so.
It shows that Malaysiakini is running out of spins.It dwells on triviality.
It's no big deal.So what if Rosmah sang Chinese songs? Most people who love music would have liked some songs in languages they don't understand.Music is universal and transcends all boundaries.You don't need to understand the language to enjoy music.
It 's no more the days of Romeo and Juliet where the paramour entice his lover with music and songs.If Rosmah managed to bring the Chinese back to the fold,which is unlikely, it's her not the song.
Just for entertainment, I present the Rolling Stones' " The Singer Not The Song"
,and a movie by the same name "The Singer Not The Song" starring Dirk Bogarde and John Mills.It's a mixture of gay and heterosexual love.The movie is not exactly box office catergory. It's the actor not the movie.
It's Rosmah not the song.
