The SinDarEla Song story

I got the chance to write a song for tv3's latest drama ,directed by Shahrulezad>>called 'Sindarela'
At 1st i had to find a composer to do the song for me,
yelah mcm biasa penyanyi cari komposer,tapi lain pulak jadinya,when i couldn't find anyone to do the song for me,
Dengan budget yang mm well..tiada.
So called up my old friend..We went to high school together
it was on the 27th of december..yes..i tulis tarikh tu dlm buku fav i!! (i got it frm drinking at Starbucks with a lot of ppl,to get this fab book u have to drink at starbucks pastu kumpul stickers,17 all together)
Anyways..So i call him up
Without any hesitations dia terus ckp YES,wanted to help me out..

So 2 days after that..dia siap buat demo for me..simple ones that my manager James Wong and my buddy Isma Yusoof to give it to Ezad to hear it..Rough ones..just nk bg ezad dgr lagu tu berentak yg dia mintak..(was in Langkawi that time)

Sampai je KL,on the 2nd,mlm tu i went to Hartamas utk dgr musicians jam' lagu tu..
At the moment,we dont have a melody or lyrics.

So i dh pening..but was excited as well,the arranger made sumthing that exactly we wanted it to be..
After the jamming session,we went minum n lepak sebentar while my head spinning for a while..
i have few verses yg i sempat tulis di Langkawi

Ini yg wujud masa tu>>>
Perlukah aku
Menanti dirimu
Dengan dirinya mengagungkan aku

Mestikah aku
Pergi bersamanya
Dengan dirimu sentiasa ku puja
t
hen lepas sembang2,kitaorang blk umah James sekejap nk brainstorming sikit katanya..heheheh
Me n Isma did the chorus
Masa jamming i wrote down..'Aku ..akulah sindarela..hatiku/angan/mimpi ntah apa2 lagi

So Isma n me just wrap it off with >>
Aku..akulah sindarela
Hatiku diriku
Anganku..mimpiku
Cerita hidupku
Akulah sindarela..
the lalalala comes 2 days after that masa tgh syok nyanyi rasa kena tambah sikit hehhehehe

Then kitaorang siapkan rangka for the 2nd verse yg akhirnya slepas ditukar sikit
>>
Sanggupkah aku
Hilangkan mimpi ku
Apa yang ku perlu antara keinginanku

Adakah aku
Harus memilihnya
Bila dirimu sentiasa ku puja



I was a bit moody mlm tu,cuz ntah la..i'm always emo.hahahha
James ngan Isma dah gelak2..sbb sore i dh jadi cam 'tut'

I balik,dgn pesanan ringkas..dari Isma..
Esok siapkan lirik dgn melodi please..ntah la napa balik mlm tu i cant access thru the internet(to listen to the rough song frm my email) there fore,i just tertido..
wake up je..terus cam gelabah..

I listen to it twice..
then i terus type (usually i write it down atas kertas)
this is what i wrote n didnt change it at all..straight frm the heart..frm the chordings i heard bersama sama melodinya..
>>>>
Dan bila hadirmu
Mengaburi hatiku
Meniti waktu mengisi saat kisah dongengku

Lakaran bahagiamu itu
Menjanjikan aku
Hanya akan..
Selalu di dlm anganku

So Isma online masa tu,i sent itvia YM and email.
gedebak gedebuk..Ezad liked it..(thanx)
so ptg tu i went with the arranger and the rest of the gang to our keyboardist .
I sang it
how the melody goes
and how the lyrics goes

the song was longer..
we did sum cutting in between..
etc etc...

We had a lot of tribulance in the making..
Tuhan saja yg tau..
but in the end we finally dpt hantar dkt ezad..
and tv3

But yet..
we also had to do 3 more versions of the song..thus,there were sindarela acoustic,
sindarela slow,sindarela piano and music box.
thanx to farouk and the musicians involved...

overall..
i owe Abg pacheye the highest gratitude..
cuz he help me record it dekat 'Vision Works' for the vocals and mixing and editing yg agung utk musicnya..Thanx a lot abg pacai...!!!

Ouh ya..
Isma help me do the photography of Sindarela EP cover,was so cool i lovee it!
(lucky me)And James has help me go thru this a lot!..woo hoo..sampai skrg pun masih tak habis kan??heheh
Dan tada...itu lah lahirnya 'Aku Sindarela' frm me..wow mmg susah gile..producing a song..but i want to do it again!!
I hope i cud do a video for this song..i want Ghaz Abu Bakar to do it..nnt lah..bilo kayo sikit..heheheheh

That's the story of Sindarela OST
