Badai Pasti Berlalu ([ˈbadai ˈpasti bərˈlalu]; English: The Storm Will Surely Pass) is the 1977 soundtrack to the Indonesian film of the same name. Rolling Stone Indonesia listed it as the best Indonesian album of all time. Three of its songs, Badai Pasti Berlalu, Merpati Putih, and Merepih Alam, were listed by Rolling Stone as among the best Indonesian songs ever released.

Recording and Release[edit]

After the success of Badai Pasti Berlalu, Eros Djarot and Chrisye were approached by Irama Mas with a request to release the soundtrack as an album, offering to buy it for a flat fee. Although they considered their work on Badai Pasti Berlalu over and were already considering their next project, they agreed.[1]

Badai Pasti Berlalu was recorded in Pluit, Jakarta[1] in a period of 21 days, led by composer Eros Djarot. The vocals were covered by Chrisye (who also played the bass) and Berlian Hutauruk, with Fariz Rustam Munaf and Keenan Nasution on the drums, Debby Nasution on the keyboard, and Yockie Suryoprajogo on both the keyboard and drums.[2]

It was released in 1977 with a picture of Badai Pasti Berlalu actress Christine Hakim on the cover.[2] After stagnating for a week, numerous radio stations began playing the singles and sales increased exponentially.[1]
