Hi Chinese brothers and sisters.. Can you help me identify a song that was used in a cupcake commercial,  I remember it was in early 90's,  the couple in the commercial were riding a boat on a lake.. Then this sweet song was the background.. I believe the brand was regent custard cake or just regent cupcake.. The music was very soothing, the woman singing voice were mesmerizing playing in a piano arrangement.. Please help me identify this song.. It remind me of my childhood

Hi,

 

could you help me to identify the song, performed during a KTV session?

I was in Sichuan province in a KTV bar and made a short recording of the song. Afterwards I asked the guy what the name of the song was, but on the next day I relaized he gave me his name on not the name of the song ;)

 

Here is the link to the youtube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ay4S1nxhDp0

 

Thank you all in advance for trying to help me :)

@Rich661 It's the Cantonese cover of the 80s classic Dschinghis Khan.

In the above Wikipedia link it is mentioned that

    Hong Kong Cantopop singer George Lam released a Cantonese cover of the song "成吉思汗", which is included in his 1979 album "Choice" (抉擇).

And this is it:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6CmRwylzlVs&pbjreload=10

 

P.S. Here's the original in German: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pzmI3vAIhbE

And the Mandarin Chinese version that most Mainlanders are more familiar with: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nha8AiWDppo&index=9&list=RDNha8AiWDppo

Hi. I came across a song in a funny video, and I wanted to know the name. I have uploaded the video to Youtube. Click HERE.

I tried using Shazam, but got no results. I looked around for Chinese-Shazam equivalent apps and download 'QQ Music', and though the whole app was in Chinese, I somehow navigated to the 'recognise song' feature and stumbled upon something. I could not copy the text, and hence I could not verify if what I found was correct or not. I am attaching the screenshot of what I found. Hope someone will be able to recognise the song. Please let me know.

It looks like it's called 活出自己快樂whoopee by MY Astro, which is a media company in Malaysia.

Hi. Do anyone know the name of this song and the singer of this song? I only know a phrase taken from the song is 'par lo por wui fat tat' which the direct translation of Cantonese is 'scared of wife will get rich'. It's a Cantonese song of a Hong Kong TVB Cantonese drama.

I was visiting Hua Shan (China) last month with my girlfriend. We just arrived a couple of hours before and it was a a drizzly day. The weather and the fact that there ware almost no people on the street made us a little bit sad, but out of the sudden a garbage truck popped up, and was playing this beautiful song. It made us very happy. I am looking for this song for a while, but without result. Does anyone know the name of this song, or where I can find it?
