I always go for 情非得已. I learned it for a KTV competition in college, and now it's handy because it let's strangers in the room know I speak Chinese but isn't too difficult.

Wow...old thread. I've widened my range considerably since my last post. Now that I have mix voice and head voice at my disposal, I can sing pretty much any 王力宏 song, and most 周杰倫. It's been a while since I've looked into popular songs though so I only know like 5 year old songs.

I am amazed some of you can sing fast songs and even 牛仔很忙 (I'm looking at you, Lu! :shock:  ). The only Chinese songs I have sung so far (under the shower with just the cat for an audience) are 月亮代表我的心 and 阿里山的姑娘 :wink:

But I just found out there is a popular Chinese Karaoke place in my town, so it's time to start to practicing!

Your challenge: 范晓萱's 《我要我们在一起》

 

At least the chorus is easy! :wink:

I really like anything by Tanya Chua 蔡健雅. All of her songs are so amazing, especially 空白格 or 陌生人。

Too many favorites to just choose one.

 

I like 那英's 《你是我的人》,《不管有多哭》,《放手》,《我还是不是你的女人》,《毒药》

 

伍佰's 《爱你一万年》,《爱情的劲头》,《一点点》

 

苏芮's 《牵手》

 

Fully agree with Lu that  趙詠華's 《 最浪漫的事》 is awesome.

 

齐亲's 《大约在冬季》 is a classic that always impresses, and I like to do 《 外面的时间》, too.

 

齐豫's 《飞鸟与鱼》is cool, as is 《女人与小孩儿》

 

许美静's 《颜色》

 

刘若英:《为爱痴狂》,《很爱很爱你》,《对面男生的房间》,《一辈子的孤单》

 

张宇 has some great songs, as does 苏慧伦 

 

I also really like 万芳, 刘虹华,刘纯如, 吴明慧, but their songs are harder to find on mainland China (due to being minor acts, or not that popular on mainland China in the case of 万芳)

Some of my fav ktv songs.

爱如潮水

This is a great song.

Also, 祝福 (very appropriate for a goodbye party)

Ooh, 祝福, that's by 张学友, right? Nice song (melody), but I didn't learn to sing it. Shanghai during the mid 90s instead reverbrated appreciably :D to the sound of me wailing his 回头太难; 一千个伤心的理由; and 我等到花儿也谢了. I should learn some recent songs, and this thread seems a good place to start! :):clap

 

We could do with a new thread called "Post your Chinese X-Factor auditions here" LOL.

Haven't been for a long time but my staples include:

光良 - 童话
周杰伦 - 安静
黄品源 - 你怎么舍得我难过

I think I could sing a lot more if the lyrics were simplified instead of traditional (never understood why that is). Hence adding a new song to my repertoire usually involes memorizing it.

 

That's one good thing about 我是歌手, they all have simplified lyrics :)

Absolutely. I thought it was not too hard to try out.:)

 

wow: 一千个伤心的理由, now that is a wailing song indeed - but pretty easy to pick up for karaoke. :lol:

 

Your vocal range must be good for 回头太难 !! Definitely put me to shame. :help

Somewhere I saw 張宇 name come up on youtube.

 

This song is a favourite of mine - 用心良苦.

 

You can find a version sung by Andy Lau on youtube who has a more 'normal' vocal range. Hmm, he also did cover of 爱如潮水

 

 

Yucks, listening to these mid 90's songs remind of the time when life was less complicated - ahh.

 

Picked up another song from the 90's - 太傻 by 巫啟賢 use the mandarin version. The cantonese version sounds strange.

Hi Flickserve! The wailing was certainly easier for the former than the latter. I only ploughed thru 回头太难 to help clear me lungs of the air pollution. :D

 

You've got me thinking now of the hardest karaoke song I've ever sung (well, attempted to sing). Unfortunately that honour has to go to a Japanese one: T.M.Revolution's Out of Orbit - Triple Zero (hmm funnily enough, that was the score the judges gave me, cos my lycra hotpants caught fire about a minute in). You can find the original song n video here (first time I've ever seen it!) http://www.jpopsuki.tv/category/video/TMRevolution---Out-Of-Orbit-%25E3%2580%259CTriple-ZERO%25E3%2580%259C/f8d0cceeb852c06ea3d4ca7d4b732e6d/2 , but the following is probably more what my performance actually sounded like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FKaKUIJ0vG0 :(:help:lol: Yes, Sinatra, Aqua, this, WaT ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q2egbw5_pmk ), I've "sung" it all! :shock::P
