綠島小夜曲 should be the state song of Penang, if not at least it is my unofficial state song. I have been away from Penang for more than 20 years, and this song will always remind me of my hometown, Penang. The song had been with me since the 60s, the first time I heard of this song was during my uncle's wedding, when his friend sung for the newly wed. I love the melody and the wordings, it may be a love song, but it also reflect the feeling of the travellers who are away from home, longing for returning to the homeland.
It tell you the story of an island, like my hometown Penang. The song of the green island, Penang
....and that is the only song that I can sing and remember until today.....
