Depressing Chinese Rock Music

The product of yet another semi-serious a car ride argument with Dad over the music. As usual he thinks my music is boring and out of tune. Out of tune was a couple of David Tao tunes, and boring was Wu Bai. Wu Bai!!

It was also at this time - i.e. mucking around with my music collection and being forced to re-examine and tide up the piddling Chinese segment because Gerri just tossed me a whole bunch of new Cheena music - that I realise that all my Chinese music falls practically exclusively into very few categories. While my appetite for English music is pretty much as voracious as it gets, all my Chinese music falls into:

Category A: Chinese R&B
In other words:
JJ Lin - 4 albums,
David Tao - 1 album and a sizable portion of miscellaneous songs
Wang Lee Hom - 4 albums (more than I care to admit to, really)
Jay Chou - a record-breaking 5 albums and a good number of miscellaneous songs.
Oddball songs from Alex Toh (the singer)
-- Ironically, this forms the biggest part of the collection, BUT anyone will tell you I have very low tolerance for English / ghetto R&B.

Category B: Chinese Blues Rock
In other words: a random mess of Dong Li Huo Che, Wu Bai, May Day things.

Category C: "Joker" Music
In other words: Ah Niu, ben xiao hai and anything crappy like that. I am still eternally amused that I BOUGHT the dui mian de nu hai kan guo lai album.

Category D: A*mei songs
In other words: what it says.

Yes, I am a specific listener.

So before I forget, these three depressing my jammy songs are going through my head on repeat as I prepare to knuckle down to reading Adrian Briggs and Otto Kahn-Freund. I'm beginning to think Kahn-Freund is pretty cool. Hell, anyone who can understand and write prolifically about the Conflict of Laws is cool.


《月亮惹的祸》
-- 张宇

都是你的错轻易爱上我
让我不知不觉满足被爱的虚荣
都是你的错你对人的宠
是一种诱惑
都是你的错在你的眼中
总是藏著让人又爱又怜的朦胧
都是你的错你的痴情梦
像一个魔咒
被你爱过还能为谁蠢动
我承认都是月亮惹的祸
那样的月色太美你太温柔
才会在刹那之间只想和你一起到白头
我承认都是誓言惹的祸
偏偏似糖如蜜说来最动人
再怎么心如钢也成绕指柔
都是你的错轻易爱上我
让我不知不觉满足被爱的虚荣
都是你的错你对人的宠
是一种诱惑
都是你的错在你的眼中
总是藏著让人又爱又怜的朦胧
都是你的错你的痴情梦
像一个魔咒
被你爱过还能为谁蠢动
我承认都是月亮惹的祸
那样的月色太美你太温柔
才会在刹那之间只想和你一起到白头
我承认都是誓言惹的祸
偏偏似糖如蜜说来最动人
再怎么心如钢也成绕指柔
怎样的情生意动
会让两个人拿一生当承诺

我承认都是誓言惹的祸
偏偏似糖如蜜说来最动人
再怎么心如钢也成绕指柔
我承认都是月亮惹的祸
那样的月色太美你太温柔
才会在刹那之间只想和你一起到白头
我承认都是誓言惹的祸
偏偏似糖如蜜说来最动人
再怎么心如钢也成绕指柔

《背叛情歌》
-- 动力火车
你问我这世界 最远的地方在那里
我将答案抛向蓝天之外落在你心底
如果你的爱总是逆向行驶
你说你爱我 我怎么能跟得上你
你问我这世界 最后的真爱在哪里
我把线索指向大海之外直达我怀里
如果你的心总是闭上耳朵
我说我爱你 你怎么能听得下去
诺言背叛诺言 刀子背叛缠绵
刺进心头我却看不见
我忘了喊痛忘了恩怨
任爱情麻木哭泣的脸
永远背叛永远 泪水背叛双眼
爱到深渊我还不改变
我宁愿相信你的欺骗
再不让我有对你去恨的一天

《浪人情歌》
-- 伍佰
不要再想你 不要再愛你讓時間敲敲的飛逝 抹去我倆的回憶
對於妳的名字 從今不會再提起 不再讓悲傷 將我心佔據 讓它隨風去
讓它無痕跡 所有快樂悲傷所有過去通通都拋去
心中想的念的盼的望的不會再是妳不願再承受
要把妳忘記 我會擦去我不小心滴下的淚水
還會裝作一切都無所謂 將妳和我的愛情全部敲碎
再將他通通趕出我受傷的心扉不願再承受 要把妳忘記
不願再承受 我把妳忘記妳會看見的
把妳忘記 O.S我想到了一個忘記溫柔的妳的方法
我不要再想妳 不要再愛你 不會再提起你 我的生命中 不曾有你
