Some songs are just so memory-provoking. When you listen to them, your mind wonders to the time and space where you first listen to them or you automatically switched to the people and things or occasion associated to them. And this album is definitely packing a great lot of them for me. Some of the songs in the album....
回家reminded me of the 1st album of Shunza that i bought. heard the song over the radio and the MTV was nice. still remember that. and Shunza rocks!!! her 1st debut album remained the best to me.
the original song which Faye Wong covered as 暧昧
the old song "re-heat" by strings of attempts by the participants of various reality-style singing competition. a fresh "bossa" take of the classic by 万芳
another classic by 林晓培
wow....though not my era, this oldie written by 罗大佑 sang by 苏芮still proved its punch
1st song of David Tao that I listened over the now defunct Voice of Asia 亚洲之声 radio. i dun like this new take, a bit overdone on the vocal, to me.
a so-so retake of 周华健's work
i love this rendition as much as the original one by Kit Chan 陈洁仪
another classic from 黄小琥 famous for her husky voice
tear jerker number from Tracy Huang 黄莺莺
sang by 范晓萱 this number written by 李泉 used to haunt me with 李泉's amazing fingerwork on the piano and yes, in this fresh take, Roger's amazing fingerwork is the kick!!!
The album is called 2V1G which means 2 voices 1 guitar is a collaboration between 何芸妮 & 戴丽津 as the main vocals and our local famous Sabahan guitarist Roger Wang. Truth to be told, I am not especially awed by the vocals but the re-arrangement of the songs made its place in my heart and of course, Roger's guitar is great and is especially impressive in the last song, 我要我们在一起. Those who know the song will appreciate the difficulty level of guitar plucking for this particular number.
Some inexplicable emotions were provoked and coupled with the gloomy sun-less weather these 2 days in Sandakan definitely set the mood for the weekend. Hey, where's my cup of cheap kopi-O?
P/S : Thanks to Sophia who helped me buy the album, well....with signature from Roger too!!!
