Cantonese ballads?

Recommended Posts

Hi Cantonese speakers:

I'm trying to learn some Cantonese songs to help expand my vocab and get used to Cantonese pronunciation - I can read the lyrics since I already know Mandarin. I was wondering if you could suggest some Cantonese ballads or any slow songs. I'm thinking from the 80's, 90's and current, it doesn't really matter as long as the melody is nice.

Please tell me the name of the song and the artist so I can search for the mp3s on the web.

Thanks so much!!

The lyrics of many songs that are sung in Cantonese are actually written in standard Chinese (or at least the lyricists tried to do so, though many have failed :wink: ). Perhaps you could try these first ->
