This has to be the scariest children’s “nursery rhyme” that I’ve listened to in recent memory. It’s in Indonesian, which is a language related to my native tongue, the Malay language. The atmosphere of the song relays a sense of creepiness and horror towards the end. This is actually unique for a song like this because usually, you don’t get horror themes relayed through a children’s song.
A very haunting with an interesting melody unique to the song itself. I also managed to learn some new words in the Mandarin language since the song repeats sentences in the chorus several times.
One of the first Mandarin songs that I’ve started to listen to in recent memory….and probably the only one I know which has rap in it! As I am currently taking up lessons in the Mandarin language, I am using this song as part of the learning effort too.
