Movie Music: 菊花台 (Ju Hua Tai) by 周杰倫 (Zhou Jie Lun/Jay Chou)

January 18, 2010 at 7:38 pm (*** Difficult, Chinese lyrics, Male Singers, Movie soundtracks, Pinyin lyrics) (, , , )

More Jay Chou. This one is from the film Curse of the Golden Flower (滿城盡帶黃金甲), a visually spectacular film that was otherwise not very spectacular. Actually, this song was released on one of Jay Chou’s earlier albums, but was used in this 2006 film, and thus the video contains scenes from the movie. Pay attention to the scenes in the opening sequence, and you’ll see why this film was the most expensive Chinese film of all time at its release (though it has since been outdone by Red Cliff [赤壁]).

As for the singing difficulty, it’s a somewhat difficult tune in terms of vocabulary, but is definitely a hard one if you happen to be a man. Work on your falsetto, or leave the chorus to the ladies.

妳 的淚光 柔弱中帶傷 慘白的月彎彎勾住過往
ni de lei guang rou ruo zhang dai shang   can bai de yue wan wan gou zhu guo wang

夜 太漫長 凝結成了霜 是誰在閣樓上冰冷的絕望
ye tai man chang ning jie cheng le shuang  shi shei zai ge lou shang bing de jue wang

雨 輕輕彈 朱紅色的窗 我一生在紙上被風吹亂
yu qing qing tan zhu hong se de chuang  wo yi sheng zai zhi shang bei feng chui luan

夢 在遠方 化成一縷香 隨風飄散妳的模樣
meng zai yuan fang  hua cheng yi lu:  xiang  sui feng piao san ni de mu yang

Chorus:

菊花殘 滿地傷 你的笑容已泛黃
ju hua can man di shang  ni de xiao rong yi fan huang

花落人斷腸 我心事靜靜躺
hua luo ren duan chang wo xin shi jing jing tang

北風亂 夜未央 你的影子剪不斷
bei feng luan  ye wei yang  ni de ying zi jian bu jian

徒留我孤單 在湖面 成雙
tu liu wo gu dan  zai hu mian  cheng shuang

Instrumental break

花 已向晚 飄落了燦爛 凋謝的世道上命運不堪
hua yi xiang wan  piao luo le can lan  diao xie de shi dao shang ming yun bu kan

愁 莫渡江 秋心拆兩半 怕妳上不了岸一輩子搖晃
chou mo du jiang  qiu xin chai liang ban pa ni shang bu lai le an yi bei zi yao huang

誰 的江山 馬蹄聲狂亂 我一身的戎裝呼嘯滄桑
shei de jiang shan ma ti sheng kuang luan  wo yi shen de rong zhuang hu xiao cang sang

天 微微亮 妳輕聲的嘆 一夜惆悵如此委婉
tian wei wei liang  ni qing sheng de tan  yi ye chou chang ru ci wei wan

Repeat chorus 2x
