I don't see any thread for Chinese Pop Music or Good Movies, which is a travesty as we have some outstanding artists, and there are three distinctive pop culture markets, PRC, HK and Taiwan, some of which do not cross over,...pity. I'll start by posting one of my current favorites, Jam Hsiao, 蕭敬騰, a Taiwanese even though I'm not too into traditional rock. He's small in stature but he has a great deep voice that sounds much bigger, I just *LOVE* his voice :

This song reminds me of Inception/Michael Jackson:

This song, The Prince's New Clothes, has really interesting lyrics:

王妃 reminds me of an old rock hit, but I can't pin it down:

Ok, ENJOY. If you have any favorite music or movies, let's share them!

Im addicted to 蕭敬騰's songs.
And I think we should dedicate an entire thread to those who produce their own music. music-smiley-004.gif

If you guys are interested in a Pulp Fiction type absurd HK gangster movie, my favorite is Too Many Ways to be No. 1. It is hilariously pathetic, smashes a lot of stereotypes and I suspect shows a truer picture of the mobster's less-than-glamorous life. The first half is better than the second, imo. Lau Ching Wan is simply a gem of an actor, and this is one of his best roles. I think this ranks as one of the best movies from Hong Kong ever.

He is one of the very RARE ones, who is not ONLY eye-candy, but who is talented in music, writes poetry and who has one of the best male vocals I've ever heard, deep and very strong. beerchug.gif

Ha...corrected, yes, he is cute!

He is cute!(Do I sound gay?) He has a great personality too.

Actually many singers nowadays write their own songs.They may not be as good as Jay Chou or Leehom,but most of them are actually pretty talented too.Id give them credit for just writing them.

Post some links, especially artists like Jam Hsiao.

Here's another oldie, Jay Chou+Jet Li's "FEARLESS", I'm sure lots of fans here!

徐佳瑩,she became famous in the same show as 蕭敬騰,she is a great singer and wrote <身騎白馬> which I think is one of the best songs of 2010.

Do you know this super cool Tomboy Zhang Yun Jing? She really looks like a very cool boy, so unexpected and different. I love how she REALLY PLAYS & SINGS, a lot of substance, not the usual made-up Doll.

Yeah, she writes all her own songs, plays the guitar and arranges her own music. Great talent!
