Mr Najib Razak Sings Pop 60's Music

Songs I Love

It's been circulating on WhatsApp:


When Mr Najib Razak was still around as Prime Minister he loved to sing pop music from the 1960's. One of his favourite songs is The Young Ones, the famous hit by Cliff Richard and a test item for all would-be Singapore Cliff Richard contestants. Like the Shadows instrumental Apache, this Cliff favourite has been performed a million times by many 60's music fans. 


So here's the former Malaysian PM rockin' n rollin' in top form. He's really got the beat. With him being so famous, he could easily make it as a pop singer.  


The full keyboard backup with percussion is fantastic and Mr Najib's diction and timing are perfect. Man, he's really good. I'm sure The Silver Strings would take him on. Audie Ng, here's a good catch.

No need to practise. I think it should be on C. 

Enjoy the music and Mr Najib while you can.

Would be interesting to have Mr Tan Soo Khoon join him for a duet. An Everly Brothers song would be great. Cheers.

TAN SOO KHOON said...

He's practising JAILHOUSE ROCK and I WANNA BE FREE.

JIMMY PRESLEE (ELVIS TRIBUTE ARTISTE) said...

He now gets more viewers than Cliff Richard singing THE YOUNG ONES.

JOHN BT TAN (MUSICIAN, ARTIST, PHOTOGRAPHER, GRAPHIC DESIGNER) said...

His singing, not bad lah. Cannot beat Cliff.

JOHN BT TAN (MUSICIAN, ARTIST, PHOTOGRAPHER, GRAPHIC DESIGNER) said...

I like your C key thingy.

TAN SOO KHOON said...

And backed by The Silver Strings. :-)

STEPHEN HAN said...

An old person wanting to be the “Young Ones” again.

Let go stress.

SUNNY WEE said...

Perhaps showcasing a hidden singing talent for a future busking career.

AUDIE NG (SILVER STRINGS, LEADER, BASSIST) said...

Key C is too low for a man's key. Should be G. Not a good idea to e involved with him especially Silver Strings backing him would only invite problems?

Don't want to be implicated, not good publicity but adversity.

HAPPY TAY (BC CANADA) said...

Not bad. He can sing, got good rhythm too. LHL nowhere close to him. (haha).

OLIVER B. (PERCUSSIONIST/ SCHOOL PRINCIPAL) said...

A better singer than a politician.

LIM KUAN MIN said...

My empathy for him. Probably realised his days of freedom are numbered and singing his swan song. (Sigh).

My teacher pointed at me with his ruler and said, 'At the end of this ruler there's an idiot.'

I got detention after asking, 'Which end?'

MICHAEL BANGAR (GUITARIST, BLOG WRITER) said...

Very soon he has to give up singing, THE YOUNG ONES and has to switch to other songs. Ha, ha, ha.

JOE WOON (BASSIST: THE EASY BEATS) said...

This was before the election? After results, another song?

ANDY: Pop Music Not Pills. © said...

No, this video showed him singing after the elections.
Thank you all for the comments.
