Cambodian Pop: 'Chong Baan Prowpun Khmer'

My (Sam's) current favourite Cambodian pop song. It's got something about it (not really sure what) that makes it stand out from the crowded Cambodian pop/karaoke market place. It's about a guy who wants to get himself a 'prowpun Khmer', a Cambodian wife. This is because she will know all the traditional Cambodian ways, and will provide him with a ''poi satch'. This literally means 'meat blanket' but is actually a metaphor for the warmth that comes from having a wife and sleeping partner for those really cold winter nights we get here in Cambodia!
