There have been many Hari Raya songs written, but after so many years, I still hear the following songs year in and year out.
They are what I call total classics, everybody knows them, they still sound good, and pretenders will have a very hard time replacing them.
The list is like a who’s who of the local entertainment scene with their very own unforgettable Aidilfitri number.
Saloma – Selamat Hari Raya
Sharifah Aini – Selamat Hari Raya
DJ Dave – Menjelang Hari Raya
Hail Amir & Uji Rashid – Seloka Hari Raya
Ahmad Jais – Selamat Hari Raya
Fazidah Joned – Selamat Hari Raya
Sanisah Huri – Selamat Hari Raya
Others, arguably lower down the ladder:
P Ramlee – Dendang Perantau
Sudirman – Dari Jauh Ku Pohon Maaf
Rafeah Buang – Bila Takbir Bergema
Aman Shah – Kepulangan Yang Dinanti
Dayangku Intan – Senandung Hari Raya Untukmu
Ramlah Ram – Hari Raya Hari Bahagia
