Please post your favorite Cambodian songs

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

I'm fairly picky when it comes to Cambodian songs and singers, but this meets my criteria .



Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

I quite like these two tunes I heard when out and about (recorded on the street and in a shop on my phone)

I don't suppose anyone can ID them?

Track one, outside Sunsimexco Monivong

Track two, in Bangkok Shop Sorya Mall

Thanks Jamie, that is awesome. Both tunes are catchy despite being different ends of the spectrum.
