It would appear that I am in a blogging mood...that and a friend recently recommended me some beautiful music which I've fallen in love with and therefore want to share here on my blog. If you like Chinese music then I hope you like some of these songs. You're also welcome to make suggestions of your own - much welcome. I'm a music lover at heart and relish in beautiful music. It's a great way of passing time, of blocking out the rest of the world, of cheering yourself up, a way to connect with someone else or even a creative way of learning.
Jay Chou (周杰伦)
Ting Ma Ma De Hua (听妈妈的话 English: Listen to Mama's words)
JJ Lin (林俊杰)
Bei Dui Bei Yong Bao (背對背擁抱 English: Back To Back)
Ta Yi Ding Hen Ai Ni (他一定很愛你 English: He Must Love You)
And just to prove to you that I don't just listen to male singers:
Fish Leong (梁静茹)
Ke Xi Bu Shi Ni (可惜不是你 English: Sadly, It's Not You)
And last but not least, a great song to learn Chinese characters, a song about 400 silver dragons...although if I'm quite honest the song doesn't actually have much to do with 400 silver dragons. Nevertheless it's an absolutely beautiful song with the most enchanting guitar solo that makes my knees melt.
Phil Chang (張宇)
Si Bai Long Yin (四百龍銀 English: 400 Silver Dragons)
---the video comes with Chinese lyrics but it's traditional characters---
Jam Hsiao (萧敬腾)
Ru Guo Mei You Ni (如果沒有你 English: If I Don't Have You)
This song was originally recorded and sung by Karen Mok but Jam Hsiao recorded it as part of is 2009 tribute album "Love Moments" which is his third album featuring 10 truly beautiful covers.
I hope you've enjoyed these, I most definitely have, and yes I occasionally do still listen to English music but as part of this blog I'd like to introduce something to my readers they may not actively look for. You don't need to understand the words to love music...
