WITH a music career spanning over four decades, Sharifah Aini has amassed a wide catalogue of hits. From mellow classics to infectious pop numbers, here are some of her career–defining songs.
1. Hapuslah Airmatamu
Sharifah Aini’s heartfelt delivery and soaring vocals made this Ahmad Nawab-composed number an all-time hit.
2. Seiring Sejalan
Sharifah and top Indonesian crooner Broery Marantika were a match made in music heaven. With its catchy tune and carefree “La la la la” chorus, this upbeat number gave her more edge in pop music.
3. Kau Pergi Tanpa Pesan
Apart from ballads and pop songs, Sharifah also recorded hits in the traditional music genre. Recorded in 1982, Sharifah displayed her versatility in this Arabic–influenced number.
4. Seri Dewi Malam
Originally sung by Normadiah in 1957, the then 17-year-old Sharifah took on the classic and made it her own.
5. Tiada Maaf Bagimu
This ballad became one of Sharifah’s biggest hits in 1979. Her alluring voice gave this song its thematic heartbreak. – Angelin Yeoh
