This song is from the classic 1962 Malaysian film "Ibu Mertuaku (My Mother-in-Law)", directed by the great Tan Sri P. Ramlee, who stars as Kassim Selamat, a poor musician who has a tragic love affair with Sabariah, the only daughter of a wealthy woman. Though it begins as a comedy it soon develops into a tragic drama. This song has been covered by many Malaysian recording artists, including Siti Nurhaliza and Anita Sarawak. Popular rock group Azlan and the Typewriter have made it popular with a younger audience. In the movie, it is introduced and accompanied by a saxophone, but I have to make do with my guitar. This song was requested by juniraven and also by dauswq.

Jeritan Batinku- by Tan Sri P. Ramlee from the movie Ibu Mentuaku
For my Malaysian friends. Tan Sri P. Ramlee (1929-73) was a famous Malaysian actor, film director and songwriter. He wrote over 360 songs, most of which were used in his movies. This song, one of his most popular, is from the 1960 movie, Antara Dua Darjat (The Two Classes). I found it quite difficult to learn this song, as it is not my usual style, but it was a request, so here it is at last. I hope I've got it right. The words mean something like this: The stirring of my soul Bathes my heart with emotion, By the arranged notes Of rhythm and song. If it is only modest, It doesn't matter. Perhaps it could awaken you. Realise this, good man. Never will they vanish, Rhythm and song. Like blossoms, They will linger forever. If you separate The song and the rhythm, They'll be weak and soulless And empty.
