We got people on the street to talk about songs that hold a special place in their hearts, because kaypoh

Because y’all listen to love songs confirm think about a certain someone right?

We’re all a little guilty of this.

Sometimes, a sappy romantic song comes on shuffle on Spotify and you start thinking of that special someone. Then you start daydreaming, perhaps  your heart aches with longing a little, or even swells with ~*~*overwhelming love~*~*~ because you’re reminded of happy times.

So we went on the streets and asked random, ordinary people about their special songs. It made us feel forever alone.

Song they picked: Perfect – Ed Sheeran

“We just got married on 28 January and this was our wedding song. There was a band that played this song!” – Vania, 27 and her husband

Song she picked: Perfect – Ed Sheeran featuring Beyoncé

“This song reminds me of the way my boyfriend treats me and cares for me. He loves holding hands together but we don’t see each other often because he’s in KL.” – Jasmin, 19

Song he picked: Everytime – A1

“I introduced this song to her and she liked it, so we listen to it often. I got to know this song because it was actually from a CD my dad used to play in the car when I was very young.” – Darren, 20 and his girlfriend Namy, 19

Song he picked: Lean On Me – Bill Withers

“The song reminds me that she is always with me, and that I’ll always have somebody to lean on.” – Jaswinder, 31

Song she picked: Tum Hi Ho – Arjit Singh

Tum Hi Ho means You Are The Only One in Hindi. The song gives me comfort whenever I’m sad and it’s hard to meet my boyfriend. I like the rhythm, beat and the emotions in the song.” – Nazirah, 20

Song she picked: In Love With You – Jacky Cheung featuring Regine Velasquez

“My husband is Chinese, and I am Filipino. The song is sung by a Hong Kong singer and Filipino singer, so we feel like we can resonate with the song. 

I know this song because I used to sing with my band in the Philippines. I love karaoke, so I brought him there and we sang this song together! It’s a song we’ll always sing at karaoke.” – Ainee, 29 and her husband Henry, 41

Song they picked: If I Ain’t Got You – Alicia Keys

“We met each other and that was our first duet together. I asked her, “Hey, do you know how to sing Alicia Keys’ song If I Ain’t Got You?” and she said yes!

Then we sang together and it was amazing. That became our go-to song everytime we went to karaoke.

Yeah, it’s a difficult song (to sing), but we just down the key lor. Hehe.” – Jason, 26 and his girlfriend Celinna, 23

Song he picked: When You Look Me In The Eyes – Jonas Brothers

“One of my all time favourites. When I was dating or liked someone, I always wanted them to know that they felt comforted, safe and assured. Just by looking them in the eyes. Then you know that it’s enough that you have each other.” – Perry, 23
