Let's Talk About Chinese Music

I practically grew up listening to chinese songs which is of my brother's influence.

It was the 四大天王 and 周华健 songs that I pretty much listened to back then.

Soon after when i went to secondary school I switched to listening to more of english songs ~linkin park, simple plan, avril lavigne etc. rather than chinese songs cause we all think that english pop rock songs are way cooler.

Got really outdated of all the hits songs that were going on since we're a bunch of classical noob.
I only realised that Taylor Swift is a hit when i went karaoke session with the hometown gang *don't like her though :P

And here are some singers that i think are great ones ~ 蘇打綠, Joanna Wang, Hins Cheung, Khalil Fong, Chao Ge, Xiao Jing Teng songs are great i think.

蘇打綠_無與倫比的美麗 - love the singer's voice despite him souding more like a girl;s voice ;P
The keyboardist is really cool too cuz he plays the keyboard and at the same time violin as well!

Hins Cheung...simplicity as best.

Joanna Wang - 因為你愛我
Reminds me of Lisa Ono songs ;)

Khalil Fong ~ he's definitely the asian jason mraz. Don't really like his 1st album but the 2nd one is really great though. His improvisation is good and that is what makes him outstanding from the other typical asian singers.
