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!

I'd like to share several versions of 大海 "Sea" one of the best Chinese pop song ever written by the late 張雨生. It is a heart-wrenching song about losing one's love, the great pain of that loss and the memory of the lover. These are great talent!

The late 張雨生's version is the original, plaintive and poetic :


大海
张雨生

从那遥远海边,慢慢消失的你,
from that distant seaside, as you slowly vanish

本来模糊的脸,竟然渐渐清晰.
the fading face, strangely gradually becomes clearer

想要说些什么,又不知从何说起,
want to say something, but know not where to start

只有把它放在心底
so it is kept deep in the heart



茫然走在海边,看那潮来潮去,
walking aimlessly by the sea, watching the tide ride in and out

徒劳无功,想把每朵浪花记清,
futilely, trying to remember every little wave

想要说声爱你,却被吹散在风里.
want to say I love you, but it's dispersed in the wind

茫然回头,你在那(哪?)里.
Lost, I look back, where are you/you are there


reff 2

如果大海能够,唤回曾经的爱.
If the great ocean could, recall the love we once had

就让我用一生等待.
then let me, with my whole life, wait

如果深情往事,你已不再留恋.
if the past deep feelings, you no longer treasure

就让它随风飘远.
then let it float away with the wind

如果大海能够,带走我的哀愁.
if the great ocean could, take away my sorrow

就象带走每条河流.
just like it takes away each riverflow

所有受过的伤,所有流过的泪.
all the pain suffered, all the tears that have flowed

我的爱……
and my love...

请全部带走.
please take it all away

This is 陈伟联's version, melancholic, gentle and pure, it has some real people at the end of the MV shouting the names of their loved ones out, a nice touch:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r-DW7bZX8Jg...feature=related

楊培安's voice is phenomenal, it is one of the most beautiful voice I have ever heard, and he added a rocking riff to this song, it's really surges like the waves :

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qdYCZqpWQqw...feature=related


Finally, Japan's godfather of Rock, J-Walk, paid an AMAZING tribute to this song, he not only added an incredible rock track, this song poured the feelings out in such a powerful way, it really makes you feel like crying along. He added beautiful Japanese lyrics in the beginning before belting out the original lyrics in Chinese, the transcript for the Japanese lyrics is in the second video. This is my favourite version, cathartic, poetic but ROCKS :

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a7f7YTPUy3Y...feature=related

Better version, better sound, with transcripts, but without the MV:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tKXNGmlYgBw...feature=related

如果能夠漫步在這片大海無論多遠
If I could just stroll along this great ocean, no matter how far
或許就只是這樣走著吧 不向我靠近
perhaps simply to walk, not too close to me
雖然是個幻影
even though it's an illusion
如今還是感覺能夠看到你
I still feel as if I can see you

如果你在這片大海的某處
If you are somewhere on this great sea
一個人孤獨的等候著我
alone waiting for me
對於什麼都不做只能這樣站著的我
for the me, who can only stand here,
你可以不必原諒這樣的我
you don't have to forgive someone like me

隨波逐流不停轉動的貝殼
Like the shell tossing ceaselessly with the waves
你是否也會如此直到變成一粒沙 不在乎自己的命運
will you go on like this till you turn into a grain of sand, with no regard for your fate
這樣生存下去 真的好嗎
To live like this, is this really good?
你哭著問我無法回答你的我
You cry as you ask me, the me who cannot offer you the answer
只能一直這樣站著
only standing here like this

如果 這片海能夠看到
Can this ocean see
是否知道這不是謊言呢
that this isn't a lie
第一次有那樣的感覺
the first time I feel this
我居然有那樣的感覺
even I have such feelings

牽起你的手 絕不會放開
Holding your hands, not letting go
希望能夠一起走下去擁你入懷中
hoping to walk this way together, holding you in my embrace
許下誓言的那一天 我不會忘記越是守護著
whenIi made that promise that day, I will not forget that the one who keeps it
越容易受傷 希望有人告訴我
is the one who is more readily hurt, hope someone will tell me
但是無論我怎麼問大海不會回答我
but no matter how I ask the sea will not answer
只能這樣站著直到最后
I can only stand here till the end


This part is identical to the original Chinese :
如果大海能夠喚回曾經的愛
就讓我用一生等待
如果深情往事你已不在留戀
就讓他隨風漂遠
如果大海能夠帶走我的哀愁
就像帶走每條河流
所有受過的傷所有流過的淚
我的愛 請全部帶走

Yes, it's quite an obsession, a heartbreak song and a true classic by the late 張雨生. This is why so many other singers have reinterpreted this song in their own way, as a tribute to him, and I like J-Walk's version best, it was as if he was singing it to a genuine lost love. I edited and posted English lyrics to this too. music-smiley-004.gif

Why did 張雨生 die... seems geniuses die young
