Chinese Song of the Day

Recommended Posts

by 彭羚

彭羚's voice is beautiful. I love her talent and humble manner. Her Mandarin pronunciation is very good.

You can tell after listening to her that she is a genuine singer, rather than one of those no-talent idols.

窮得只有愛. I like the first line of the song.

Re 汽水蓋 in the lyrics. It should have been 荷蘭水蓋. 荷蘭水 was the old name of 汽水. Its bottle cap (荷蘭水蓋) means "medal". The writer has used the term 汽水蓋 instead because (I guess) there is not enough space for the 4-word term. Not everyone would understand the term, though.

曲:Pan 詞:黃偉文 唱:at17

窮得只擁有愛 難以買四兩菜

但窮未曾令我倆下台

口袋只有愛 志氣卻超載

常被人預言並沒有未來 從來不感慨

我 一身債 時時仲差一文過海

我 只知道 豪華是一開口唱 一街都喝彩

窮得多麼精彩 窮得我想得更開

人真想得到的 原來是哪些

他有車有樓有貓有狗有花有草

有錢有面有獎有汽水蓋 而無人可愛

窮得多麼精彩 糧草缺live show照開

難得燈光一開 全場是怪胎

他與他與他與她與她與他與她

共你一班死黨滿地鋪開 就像人的山和人的海

拿黃金的手鬆不開 銀碼叫眼界遮蓋

窮人先有空看出趣味來 計算身邊的愛

我 應該不會 豪庭大廳之中托腮

而我 只需要 豪華在一開口唱 一街都喝彩

窮得多麼精彩 窮得我想得更開

人真想得到的 原來是哪些

他有車有樓有貓有狗有花有草有錢

卻想不開 問汽水蓋 為何欠所愛

窮得多麼精彩 糧草缺live show照開

難得燈光一開 全場是怪胎

他與他與他與她與她與他與她再加你的一家

奉上的愛 人窮才珍惜 才懂得愛 la la la la

人自悲哀 懂得愛 懂得愛

用心良苦 by 張宇 (melodist of 囚鳥)

曲:張宇

詞:十一郎

妳的臉有幾分憔悴 

妳的眼有殘留的淚

妳的唇美麗中有庋憊

我用去整夜的時間

想分辨在妳我之間

到底誰會愛誰多一點

我寧願看著妳

睡的如此沉靜

勝過妳醒時決裂殷無情

妳說妳想要逃

偏偏注定要落腳

情滅了愛熄了

剩下空心要不要

春已走花又落

用心良苦缺成空

我的痛怎麼形容

一生愛錯放妳的手

我的痛怎麼形容 

一生愛錯放妳的手

那有一天不想你

作曲: 林慕德

作詞: 向雪懷

原唱: 黎明

抬頭望雨絲 夜風翻開信紙

你的筆跡轉處談論昨日往事

如何讓你知 活在分開不寫意

最寂寞夜深人靜倍念掛時

沒有你暖暖聲音 瀝瀝雨夜不再似首歌

別了你那個春天 誰在痛苦兩心難安

我帶著情意 一絲絲悽愴

許多說話都 仍然未講

縱隔別遙遠 懷念對方

悲傷盼換上 再會祈望

我帶著情意 一絲絲悽愴

許多說話都 仍然未講

盼你未忘記 如夢眼光

只需看著我 再不迷惘

重投夢裡鄉 在孤單的那方

見到今天的你 仍像昨日漂亮

柔情望對方 望著一生都不想放

怕日後夢醒時候印象淡忘

讓我跟你走 by 彭羚

Wide vocal range. Compare the power of her notes in this song versus the soft delivery in 囚鳥.

by Teresa Teng. Miki Takashi, composer of some of her biggest hits (我只在乎你, 愛人, 償還), wrote the melody.

聰明糊塗心 by 陳淑樺.

First heard this song when I was still in primary school. My aunty loved this song and always sang it in Karaoke. Lyrics wise I think it is ok but I really like the intro part and of course, her voice.

Another old song (well, at least old to me): 讓我忘記你的臉 by 張信哲.

One of my 流行音樂啟蒙曲 :D. Initially saw the music video on MTV, when it was still aired in mainland, and his voice caught me.

I agree. Clear voice and clarity in pronunciation. Her 夢醒時分 and 笑紅塵, both written by 李宗盛, are my favorites.

She has retired since the late 1990s, and lives a hermit life out of public view.

哭砂

曲: 熊美玲

詞: 林秋離

原唱: 黃鶯鶯

你是我最苦澀的等待 讓我歡喜又害怕未來

你最愛說你是一顆塵埃 偶爾會惡作劇的飄進我眼裡

寧願我哭泣 不讓我愛你 你就真的像塵埃消失在風裡

你是我最痛苦的抉擇 為何你從不放棄飄泊

海對你是那麼難分難捨 你總是帶回滿口袋的砂給我

難得來看我 卻又離開我 讓那手中瀉落的砂像淚水流

風吹來的砂 落在悲傷的眼裡 誰都看出我在等你

風吹來的砂 堆積在心裡 是誰也擦不去的痕跡

風吹來的砂 穿過所有的記憶 誰都知道我在想你

風吹來的砂 冥冥在哭泣 難道早就預言了分離

It's not new but I love this song by 高胜美, the clip is not bad too:

追梦人 - Dream Pursuer (the Chinese lyrics are displayed)

让青春吹动了你的长发让它牵引你的梦,

ràng qīngchūn chuīdòng le nǐ de chángfà ràng tā qiānyǐn nǐ de mèng,

不知不觉这城市的历史已记取了你的笑容。

bùzhībùjué zhè chéngshì dìlì shǐ yǐ jìqǔ le nǐ de xiàoróng.

红红心中蓝蓝的天是个生命的开始,

hónghóng xīnzhōng lán lán de tiān shì ge shēngmìng de kāishǐ,

春雨不眠隔夜的你曾空独眠的日子。

chūnyǔ bù mián géyè de nǐ céng kòng dú mián de rìzi.

让青春娇艳的花朵绽开了深藏的红颜,

ràng qīngchūn jiāoyàn de huāduǒ zhànkāi le shēncáng de hóngyán,

飞去飞来的满天的飞絮是幻想你的笑脸。

fēiqù fēi lái de mǎntiān de fēi xù shì huànxiǎng nǐ de xiàoliǎn.

秋来春去红尘中谁在宿命里安排?

qiū láichūn qù hóngchén zhōng shuí zài sùmìng lǐ ānpái?

冰雪不语寒夜的你那难隐藏的光彩。

bīng-xuě bùyǔ hányè de nǐ nà nán yǐncáng de guāngcǎi.

看我看一眼吧,莫让红颜守空枕;

kàn wǒ kàn yīyǎn ba,mò ràng hóngyán shǒu kòng zhěn;

青春无悔不死,永远的爱人!

qīngchūn wú huǐ bù sǐ,yǒngyuǎn de àiren!

让流浪的足迹在荒漠里写下永久的回忆,

ràng liúlàng de zújì zài huāngmò lǐ xiěxià yǒngjiǔ de huíyì,

飘去飘来的笔迹是深藏的激情你的心语。

piāo qù piāo lái de bǐjì shì shēncáng de jīqíng nǐ de xīn yǔ.

前尘红世轮回中谁在声音里徘徊?

qiánchén hóng shì lúnhuí zhōng shuí zài shēngyīn lǐ páihuái?

痴情笑我凡俗的人世终难解的关怀。

chīqíng xiào wǒ fánsú de rénshì zhōng nánjiě de guānhuái.

It’s an very old Cantonese song, which is the theme song of a Cantonese TV play named “秦始皇 / the First Emperor of Qin”. (I think the song is right for Chairman Mao too. Hehe. :wink: )

http://v.youku.com/v_show/id_XMjk0MzY=_pmo.html

大地在我脚下

The earth is under my feet

国计掌于手中

The power is in my hands

哪个再敢多说话

Who else dares to protest?!

夷平六国是谁

Who has conquered all the other six states?!

那个统一称霸

Who has unified and dominated the country?!

谁人战绩高过孤家

Whose military success will be greater than mine?!

高高在上

Sitting on the supreme high,

诸君看吧

“Have a look at this,

朕之江山美好如画

my country is a beautiful painting.”

登山踏雾

Climbed up mountains, stepped through mist,

指天笑骂,

Pointing up the heaven, I shouted with laugh

舍我谁堪夸

If not me, who deserved all these eulogies!

秦是始

Qin Dynasty is initiative,

人在此

I’m here as Your Majesty,

夺了万世潇洒

winning the glory of all posterity.

顽石刻

Carved on stone tablets,

存汗青

Written in historical records,

传颂我如何叱咤

Eulogizing my marvelous stories

(The lyrics are translated by studentyoung.)

On the radio this morning there was an interview programme on a politician who has recently quit his party. At the end of the programme he played this song, which is a good old non-romantic song. Great choice of song. Superb lyrics by 鄭國江 and the song was written by the singer himself. (George Lam used to be one of the top HK singers, and the original singer of the song 男兒當自強 before Jackie Chan's version.)

誰能明白我 (links to the song at the end of the post)

曲:林子祥 詞:鄭國江 唱:林子祥

昂然踏着前路去 追趕理想旅途上

前行步步懷自信 風吹雨打不退讓

無論我去到哪方 心裏夢想不變樣

是新生 是醒覺 夢想永遠在世上

前路那怕遠只要自強 我繼續獨自尋路向

常為以往夢想發狂 耐心摸索路途上

懷自信我永不怕夜航 到困倦我自彈自唱

掌聲我向夢想裏尋 儘管一切是狂想

途人路上回望我 只因我的怪模樣

途人誰能明白我 今天眼睛多雪亮

人是各有各理想 奔向目標不退讓

用歌聲 用歡笑 來博知音的讚賞

懷自信我永不怕夜航 到困倦我自彈自唱

掌聲我向夢想裏尋 儘管一切是狂想

昂然踏着前路去 追趕理想旅途上

前行步步懷自信 依照心中那正確方向

懷着愛與恕的心 充滿夢想的笑匠

用歌聲 用歡笑 來博知音的讚賞

I didn't have time to check through all the replies, but I'm guessing nobody has posted any 果味VC. They're my favorite Chinese Britpop band and my favorite song of theirs has to be 木偶剧 (as can be seen in my sig).

Check out a live video of it from last year's Modern Sky Festival here (I was lucky enough to be there!). They recently took down all their Great Restoration clips from Douban (check out their new song though! So Beatles), but you might still be able to get it on their MySpace. And here's a gorgeous acoustic version from a Yugong Yishan charity gig last year.

歌词:

想起那一天 迷失的我想遇见你

我们是否会 到现在也各自简单

恍惚感觉 在从前的夜 褪色的回忆

曾经在一起 似乎是梦 这重复的梦

剧情改变着又再相遇

若是那一天 迷失的我没遇见你

奇迹一定会 忽然出现 让我们

相遇在偶然的阴天

我看着你的眼睛,不需要语言

爱静止了时间

故事回到了原点

不会去在意 即使这距离多么遥远

重复的画面 直到一天 你和我

又相遇在 偶然的阴天

我看着你的眼睛 不需要语言

爱静止了时间 故事回到了原点

就在偶然的阴天 你看着我的眼睛

不需要语言 爱静止了时间 故事回到了原点

你的樣子 by 林志炫

曲︰羅大佑

詞︰羅大佑

我聽到傳來的誰的聲音

像那夢裡嗚咽中的小河

我看到遠去的誰的步伐

遮住告別時哀傷的眼神

不明白的是為何妳情願

讓風塵刻劃妳的樣子

就像早已忘情的世界

曾經擁有妳的名字我的聲音

那悲歌總會在夢中驚醒

訴說一點哀傷過的往事

那看似蠻不在乎轉過身的

是風乾淚眼後蕭瑟的影子

不明白的是為何人世間

總不能融解妳的樣子

是否來遲了明日的淵源

早謝了妳的笑容我的心情

不變的妳 佇立在茫茫的塵世中

聰明的孩子 提著易碎〔心愛〕的燈籠

瀟灑的你 將心事化盡塵緣中

孤獨的孩子 你是造物的恩寵

Composer's rendition
