Chinese Song of the Day

Recommended Posts

bhchao

1) By 蘇芮:

a)

B) 車站 (Cantonese duet with 夏韶聲) /

(女)︰望著無盡鐵路怎會不孤單

你再踏上風沙要轉幾多彎

站在沉默眺望列車的消失

剩下是夜和人和一聲聲心裡概歎

(男)︰或是逃避昨日積壓的重擔

或是為了他朝誓要闖一番

倦極仍在眺望未知的空間

路或儘是循環仍傾出一生再去探

(合)︰悠悠長途重重山風急鐵路冷

離愁和回憶加起千百擔

何時何年才能夠風中再遇妳

挽手傾談吻乾偷泣的眼

*再等幾多班方能等到妳

*再轉幾多彎方能不想妳

(女)︰站後仍是有站仿似很簡單

不知幾多悲歡盛滿每一班

(男)︰實在人造鐵路至縮短空間

或是盡量延長人生中的千串概歎

(合) Repeat

(女)︰要再經多少個站你方可再復還

如重逢是否感情仍未淡

(男)︰要再經多少個站我方可以淡忘

誰人曾停留在臂彎

(合) Repeat

2) 原鄉人 (Slow ballad) by 鄧麗君

3) 讀你 (Soft rock) by 蔡琴

Queen's Road East 皇后大道東

皇后大道東

曲:羅大佑 詞:林夕 唱:羅大佑/蔣志光

皇后大道西又皇后大道東

皇后大道東轉皇后大道中

皇后大道東上為何無皇宮

皇后大道中人民如潮湧

有個貴族朋友在硬幣背後

青春不變名字叫做皇后

每次買賣隨我到處去奔走

面上沒有表情卻匯聚成就

知己一聲拜拜遠去這都市

要靠偉大同志搞搞新意思

照買照賣樓花處處有單位

但是旺角可能要換換名字

這個正義朋友面善又友善

因此批準馬匹一週跑兩天

百姓也自然要鬥快過終點

若做大國公民只須身有錢

知己一聲拜拜遠去這都市

要靠偉大同志搞搞新意思

冷暖氣候同樣影響這都市

但是換季可能靠特異人士

空即是色 色即是空

空即是色即是色即是空....

這個漂亮朋友道別亦漂亮

夜夜電視螢幕繼續舊形象

到了那日同慶個個要鼓掌

硬幣上那尊容變烈士銅像

知己一聲拜拜遠去這都市

要靠偉大同志搞搞新意思

會有鐵路城巴也會有的士

但是路線可能要問問何事

Skylee,

In the song titled 皇后大道東, what does the line 空即是色 色即是空

空即是色即是色即是空....(This second line is actually wrong or it's correct but you or whoever posted it online got tired of typing/copying & pasting too much? I've went to Youtube and in this song they've repeated 空即是色 色即是空 7 times in the video, not 空即是色即是色即是空....) [from a Buddhist prayer commonly translated as "The Heart Sutra" in English].... have to do with the Hong Kong street name 皇后大道東?

I know the meaning to the rest of the song, but this part stumps me every time?

Thanks.

A Cantonese video from 1993 has a line or two in Mandarin from this Hong Kong actress Gigi Lai. She was never known for her singing. She is now retired from acting, taking time to watch over her bro's doctor's clinic after he got into an horrible accident.

Enjoy: 黎 姿 我這樣愛你,錯了嗎?

Title of this video is 砒霜, pi shuang, which is "arsenic poison(ing)" in English.

Re #232, there are no typos as far as I can see. That is how the part is sung (singing the two lines four times). IMO, the lines in question mean it all comes to nothing, all the prosperity, all the freedom, nothing. If you understand the rest of the song then you know why.

Is anyone actually listening to these? Seems to have been a couple of pages since anyone posted any reaction to any of the songs. I suspect it would be helpful if some basic information - genre, why you like it, anything that people can engage with and comment on - is posted.

(and can't we just link to the lyrics, my scroll wheel's wearing out)

Anyway, here's Jay singing 陳小春's 獻世. What he's supposed to be singing is on screen. I'd say his Canto has improved a lot since he sang 分手總要在雨天. But he still isn't as good as Jolin or S.H.E

脫掉 by 杜德偉

This song is so random and worthy of humming down the street....interesting even the guys are taking it off (relax...not everything~but pretty close!) But just to be fair there are almost enough girls in bikinis to make 2live crew proud!:mrgreen: Most out-there Chinese MV I've seen in a while...perhaps ever!

NaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNa通通脱掉。。。

Yeah, that song is fun! It's also the only Alex To song worth listening to, afaik.

Very avant-garde, yet good for everything from close listening and drowning in the music to background sound: 小河. Nothing is recorded beforehand, he makes all the music on the spot (and so he sounds different every time he performs), and the words are made up as well. Go listen, it's awesome!

Edit: actually that's a really short fragment... Something longer but less out there is

Jolin singing in cantonese?!? Last time I saw her was on Beautiful Cooking and she could barely put 2 words together. Please link, I'd love to hear how she's improved!

容祖儿 reminds me of Shu Qi (by looks, that is. I have no idea if Shu Qi sings).

This one's for you.

ok, I just randomly found this catchy lil' song today as I avoided doing my laundry, and not only is the title great..I really like 李娜‘s voice. I think I must have actually heard many many of her songs before but never figured out who sung 'em. (Anyway, all these random, older songs actually work wonders when you go to KTV places outside of China since the selection is much older, and much more limited:mrgreen:)

二人在抱擁 呼吸未聽到

漫長夜裡無語共對 我心跳聲沒有數

破碎心情 難期待你看到

熱愛的沿途 已丟失了地圖

曾令我遇到 受到最高的甜蜜 原來開心很易老

明明難待我好 斷斷續續又是甚麼意圖 誰願意做到

留在你的心迷路

憑甚麼走出濃霧 抬頭仍被你擊倒

面對風浪 讓我假 讓我裝 傷心未絕望

沉醉的手在抱你 其實很想放未放

然後熱吻 假裝緊閉著眼 不要看

曾令我遇到 受到最高的甜蜜 原來開心很易老

明明難待我好 斷斷續續又是甚麼意圖 誰願意做到

留在你的心迷路 憑甚麼走出濃霧 抬頭仍被你擊倒

面對風浪 讓我假 讓我裝 傷心未絕望

沉醉的手在抱你 如盪失找錯地方

然後熱吻 雙方嘴角又太乾

讓我假裝 讓我假 讓我裝 心中沒動蕩

仍要找昔日風光 如路牌指錯地方

眉頭額角 假裝一切狀況很妥當

多麼天真 願時日可以為愛化妝

時針一轉 秒針與未來相撞

安躺不安睡 深夜哭過仍未乾

我笑說 昨晚竟流汗

讓我假裝 讓我假 讓我裝 傷心未絕望

沉醉我的手在抱你 像信差雙腳走錯地方

讓我假裝 讓我假 讓我裝 心中沒動蕩

常說謊總是太光 逃避的你冰冷目光

然後熱吻 假裝緊閉著眼 不要看

期望下次 假裝終也令你 不上當

The composer of Teresa's 我只在乎你 died today: Miki Takashi, Teresa's songwriter from the 1980s passes away

曾為已故名歌星鄧麗君製作「愛人」、「我只在乎你」等多首曲子的日本作曲家三木剛今天上午病逝,享年64歲。

鄧麗君唱紅的「償還」、「愛人」、「我只在乎你」等膾炙人口的歌曲都是本名渡邊匡的三木作曲,他對日本戰後的歌謠史具有卓越的貢獻。

三木於三年前罹患下咽頭癌動了一場手術,之後一直在療養。今天上午,他病逝位於岡山縣岡山市的醫院。

80年代,鄧麗君唱紅的歌曲,幾乎都是他與日本名作詞家荒木豐久聯手創作的,包括「償還」、「愛人」、「我只在乎你」、「別離的預感」、「悲傷的自由」等。

「我只在乎你」一曲還讓鄧麗君獲得日本唱片大賞;三木的多首曲子讓鄧麗君在日本建立了歌唱的黃金期。

5月8日是鄧麗君逝世14週年紀念日,「日本電視台」(NTV)還特別播放這些歌曲紀念她。

He gave Teresa her comeback in Japan by writing three consecutive hits for her:

1) 償還 (1984)

2) 愛人 (1985)

3) 我只在乎你 (1986)

Miki's melodies were retained in the Mandarin versions, with the lyrics rewritten in Chinese

Thanks Hofmann for the link to Jolin singing in Canto. She's still got a bit of an accent, but I'd say she's still improved quite a bit.
