Music Monday

For the week of September 23-29, we will focus on just giving a brief overview of lakorns. And what better way to start than the music of lakorns? I’ll be going into more details about music in lakorns later on, but for now, enjoy one of my most favorite lakorn songs ever from Manee Yard Fah.

Does it sound familiar? Celine Dion’s song Falling Into You came out in 1996 and Manee Yard Fah was released in June 2000. Music in lakorns has a long history of borrowing from western music, and if a song strikes you as familiar, it probably is from somewhere else. I’ve also read, but have no way of confirming, that the story itself is based off the book, The Princess by Jude Deveraux. I also reviewed this lakorn here if you’re wanting to learn more about it.

What are your favorite lakorn hits? Drop a line and let us know!

***Though I’m so far away
Maybe destiny brought me to be close to you
I want my heart to search
What you really mean to me

I want you to protect me
But I don’t want you to steal my heart
I feel warm when I’m close to you
Because you’re an important person to me
If you’re not here one day
Would it matter?

Even though we’re so different
But our hearts are linked
I will wait for that day
I get to spend eternity with you

I want you to protect me
But I don’t want you to steal my heart
I feel warm when I’m close to you
Because you’re an important person to me
If you’re not here one day
Would it matter? (English translation by 熊李成 )
