Please post your favorite Cambodian songs

Postby nightmare.believer » Sat Jun 07, 2014 12:38 pm

I am very interested in the arts and the finer cultural aspects of Cambodia. This is a video of my favorite Cambodian song...I guess it is an oldie. Would you guys please also post great Cambodian songs here so that we can get a nice little collection going? Thanks.

My favourite one is the Sound of Silence when the fucking wedding/funeral ends.

By Simple Sai-Mom and Gar-Fuckall.

there is a wonderful wedding outside of my building right now that provides me with a relaxing background music while I am trying to do some work. So many masterpieces to chose from, let me think for a minute or 1000000

But I also like their music from the 60s - which was very heavily influenced by the western garage music - and when you first hear it you think something like "this is so much better than any of their other stuff" that it becomes your favorite "khmer" music by default

Anything by Sin Sisamouth is pretty good, but this is my particular favourite.

My ultimate fave golden era singer not to mention the one I'd most like to bang is the wondrous/sumptuous Pan Ron.

Here is one of her more hauntingly beautiful ditty's, her plaintiff wail at the end is wrenching. A few pic below also....
