小幸運 A Little Happiness, 田馥甄 Hebe Tien – 我的少女時代電影主題曲 Our Times

This sweet little Chinese song, sung by Hebe Tien, is the theme song of the movie, Our Times. Released a few months ago in 2015, it’s a Taiwanese romance mostly set in high school. It was a pleasure transcribing this – hope you’ll enjoy it too!

JJ Lin林俊傑 – Before Sunrise 裂縫中的陽光 (10 Untold Stories album)

This is my second cover from JJ Lin’s 10 Untold Stories. The MV tells a beautiful, heart-wrenching story about the lengths to which people will go, to protect their loved ones. To quote, “If life had a syllabus, love would be the final lesson”.

In the MV, JJ Lin’s character volunteers to teach guitar to inmates at a prison. One of the prisoners who requests to be taught is on death-row and wants to return to something familiar before his time is up. The MV chronicles his story as he relives his memories before his execution at sunrise. And the song tells of pain and the hope for second chances. Sniff..sniff 😦

JJ Lin林俊傑 – Practice love修煉愛情 (10 Untold Stories album)

I stumbled upon this beautiful song with its animated MV in my ‘trending videos’ list sometime last week (March 1, 2013) and decided straight away that I had to cover it! It’s my first Mandopop song, but certainly not my last, as I’m now a fan of JJ Lin’s 🙂 The pop ballad, which is written and produced by JJ (Lin Jun Jie), is dedicated to the victims of the SilkAir Flight MI 185 crash in 1997, which killed all 104 people on board, one of whom was a close friend of JJ’s during grade school.

The animated MV, set in a futuristic earth, tells the story of a computer programmer (Jean) who loses his botanist girlfriend in a spaceship accident. Missing her dearly, he creates a program that allows his memories of his girlfriend to form into physical images, bringing her back into virtual existence. Jean’s program becomes a success, helping those who have lost loved ones to live in their memories again; however his invention causes many to be unable to distinguish between reality and memory. Touching….and bittersweet.
