Movie Music: 我的名字 (Wo de Ming Zi) by 伍佰 (Wu Bai)

January 27, 2010 at 12:03 am (* Easy, Chinese lyrics, Male Singers, Movie soundtracks, Pinyin lyrics) (, )


In 2000, Taiwanese rock star Wu Bai appeared in a Hong Kong movie called Time and Tide (順流逆流) and recorded a few songs for its soundtrack. I have to admit I’ve never seen the film, but I’ve heard this song and really like the way it sounds. On top of that, it’s slow and the vocabulary is mostly easy – perfect for someone wanting to add an unusual (read: a little old and not incredibly popular, so people will think you really know your music) song to their KTV repertoire. Can’t believe I never thought to try it out at KTV before, but it’s on my list now.

And here’s a tip… if you want to sing it like Wu Bai, just perform the whole song with your mouth hanging open. Otherwise, drink a lot of alcohol first, and you’ll probably end up slurring your words just the right amount.


花會開 春會來    還在期待些什麼
hua hui kai  chun hui lai    hai zai qi dai xie shen me

該放的是否已經放手    我還要什麼理由
gai fang de shi fou yi jing fang shou      wo hai you shen me li you

輕輕說 悄悄說     微風一樣的輕柔
qing qing shuo  qiao qiao shuo      wei feng yi yang de qing rou

或許妳也曾經經歷過      知道我沒有把握
huo xu ni ye ceng jing jing li guo     zhi dao wo mei you ba wo

Chorus:

我的名字 飛進了雨中
wo de ming zi  fei jin le yu zhong

慢慢浮現在我心口
man man fu xian zai wo xin kou

請妳原諒我的無法捉摸
qing ni yuan liang wo de wu fa zhuo mo

因我不曾愛過
yin wo bu ceng ai guo

想忘的 遺忘的          總有湧現的時候
xiang wang de  yi wang de      zong you gan xian de shi hou

該不該讓妳來擁抱我        我知道我沒把握
gai bu gai rang ni lai yong bao wo        wo zhi dao wo mei ba wo

Chorus 1x

眼前的妳 竟讓我難過          還有溼紅了我眼眸
yan qian de ni  jing rang wo nan guo              hai you shi hong le wo yan mou

我要全部放棄全部從頭           因我握妳的手 已經足夠
wo yao quan bu fang qi quan bu cong tou       yin wo wo ni de shou  yi jing zu gou

已經足夠 已經足夠
yi jing zuo gou   yi jing zi gou

愛很簡單 (Ai Hen Jian Dan) by 陶喆 (David Tao)

May 24, 2008 at 11:22 am (* Easy, Male Singers, Pinyin lyrics) (, )


A busy life and a vacation have led to blog stagnation. In fact, last week was the first time I myself went to KTV in several months. For shame!

David Tao, possibly one of the most recognizable names in Mandarin pop music, is essentially the godfather of Taiwanese pop. Any time his name comes up in conversation with a Taiwanese friend, the response is usually something like: “You like 陶喆? He’s the original!” And they’re right – at 38, he is now an old pro, and yet his original songs (like this one, from his debut album) can still be heard frequently on the radio and drifting out of storefronts in Taipei. Amusingly, despite looking like something from the early 80’s, this video is from the late 90’s. A more modern version is available here, but I chose this one because of its camp and because the lyrics on screen are easier to read.

忘了是怎麼開始
wang le shi zen me kai shi

也許就是對你 有一種感覺
ye xu jiu shi dui ni you yi zhong gan jue

忽然間發現自己
hu ran jian fa xian zi ji

已深深愛上你 真的很簡單
yi shen shen ai shang ni zhen de hen jian dan

愛的地暗天黑都已無所謂
ai de di an tian hei dou yi wu suo wei

是是非非無法抉擇 喔~
shi shi fei fei wu fa jue ze o~

沒有后悔 為愛日夜去跟隨
mei you hou hui wei ai ri ye qu gen sui

那個瘋狂的人是我 喔~
na ge feng kuang de ren shi wo o~

I LOVE YOU
I LOVE YOU

無法不愛你 BABY
wu fa bu ai ni BABY

說你也愛我
shuo ni ye ai wo

I LOVE YOU
I LOVE YOU

永遠不願意 BABY
yong yuan bu yuan yi BABY

失去你
shi qu ni

不可能更快樂
bu ke neng geng kuai le

只要能在一起
zhi yao neng zai yi qi

做什麼都可以
zuo shen me dou ke yi

雖然世界變個不停
sui ran shi jie bian ge bu ting

用最真誠的心
yong zui zhen cheng de xin

讓愛變的簡單
rang ai bian de jian dan

愛的地暗天黑都已無所謂
ai de di an tian hei dou yi wu suo wei

是是非非無法抉擇 喔~
shi shi fei fei wu fa jue ze o~

沒有後悔 為愛日夜去跟隨
mei you hou hui wei ai ri ye qu gen sui

那個瘋狂的人是我 喔~
na ge feng kuang de ren shi wo o~

I LOVE YOU
I LOVE YOU

一直在這裡BABY
yi zhi zai zhe li BABY

一直在愛你 OH YA
yi zhi zai ai ni OOOH YEAH

I LOVE YOU(喔~ yes I do)
I LOVE YOU (O~ YES I DO

永遠都不放棄
yong yuan dou bu fang qi

這愛妳的權利
zhe ai ni de quan li

如果你還有一些困惑 Oh No
ru guo ni hai you yi xie kun huo Oh No

請貼着我的心傾聽
qing tie zhe wo de xin qing ting

聽我說着 愛你(yes I do)
ting wo shuo zhe ai ni (yes i do)

(COME ON NOW 喔~)
(COME ON NOW O~)

I LOVE YOU(oh yes I do)
I LOVE YOU (oh yes I do)

一直在這裡baby (Oh yes) 一直在愛你 (Oh ya)
yi zhi zai zhe li BABY (Oh yeah) yi zhi zai ai ni (Oh yeah)

I LOVE YOU 永遠都不放棄 這愛妳的權利
I LOVE YOU yong yuan dou bu fang qi zhe ai ni de quan li

童話 (Tong Hua) video… in LEGO!

February 25, 2008 at 9:53 am (* Easy, Male Singers) (, )


I’m completely swamped with events for VDAY, so this isn’t a lyrics post, but I couldn’t let a moment go by without sharing this absolutely genius video. If you like the video for Tong Hua (original post), you’ll love this video. I was hoping it would include the nosebleed, but the section beginning at 3:40-ish is just perfect. By the way, it’s got subtitles of the English translation of the lyrics.

對面的女孩看過來 (Dui Mian de Nü Hai Kan Guo Lai) by 任賢齊 (Richie Ren)

January 1, 2008 at 12:38 pm (* Easy, Chinese lyrics, Cover songs, Male Singers, Pinyin lyrics) (, , , )


This is another song that I learned primarily through going to KTV. The video is really cute (I like the convenience store bits the best), and the song is easy to learn. At the very least, it can help you get your directions down… left, right, up, and down. By the way, the original was by the Malaysian singer 阿牛 (A Niu), but Taiwanese singer Richie Ren made it popular.

對面的女孩看過來 看過來 看過來
dui mian de nu hai kan guo lai kan guo lai kan guo lai

這裡的表演很精彩 請不要假裝不理不睬
zhe li de biao yan hen jing cai qing bu yao jia zhuang bu li bu cai

對面的女孩看過來 看過來 看過來
dui mian de nu hai kan guo lai kan guo lai kan guo lai

不要被我的樣子嚇壞 其實我很可愛
bu yao bei wo de yang zi xia huai qi shi wo hen ke ai

寂寞男孩的悲哀 說出來 誰明白
ji mo nan hai de bei ai shuo cuo lai shei ming bao

求求你拋個媚眼過來 哄哄我 逗我樂開懷
qiu qiu ni pao ge mei yan guo lao hong hong wo dou wo le kai huai

我左看右看 上看下看 原來每個女孩都不簡單
wo zuo kan you kan shang kan xia kan yuan lai mei ge nu hai dou bu jian dan

我想了又想 我猜了又猜 女孩們的心事還真奇怪
wo xiang le you xiang wo cai le you cai nu hai men de xin shi hai zhen qi guai

寂寞男孩的蒼蠅拍 左拍拍 右拍拍
ji mo nan hai de cang ying pai zuo pai pai you pai pai

為甚麼還是沒人來愛 無人問津 真無奈
wei shen me hai shi mei ren lai ai wu ren wen jin zhen wu nai

對面的女孩看過來 看過來 看過來
dui mian de nu hai kan guo lai kan guo lai kan guo lai

寂寞男孩情竇初開 需要你給我一點愛
ji mo nan hai qing dou chu kai xu yao ni gei wo yi dian ai

Hi…Hi…Hi…….

我左看右看 上看下看 原來每個女孩都不簡單
wo zuo kan you kan shang kan xia kan yuan lai mei ge nu hai dou bu jian dan

我想了又想 我猜了又猜 女孩們的心事還真奇怪
wo xiang le you xiang wo cai le you cai nu hai men de xin shi hai zhen qi guai

我左看右看 上看下看 原來每個女孩都不簡單
wo zuo kan you kan shang kan xia kan yuan lai mei ge nu hai dou bu jian dan

我想了又想 我猜了又猜 女孩們的心事還真奇怪
wo xiang le you xiang wo cai le you cai nu hai men de xin shi hai zhen qi guai

愛真奇怪 來來來… 歐黑歐…
ai zhen qi guai lai lai lai… oh hey oh

來來來… 歐…
lai lai lai… ohhhh

朋友 (Peng You) by 周華健 (Emil Chau)

January 1, 2008 at 1:34 am (* Easy, Chinese lyrics, Male Singers, Pinyin lyrics) (, )


A good friend introduced this song to me a long time ago, and it’s the first song I learned solely through hearing it at KTV. It’s old, but a really nice song to sing with friends. It’s always one of my top picks at KTV.

Lyrics note: Since this song really only has one verse and an oft-repeated chorus, I’m only including the verse and chorus one time.

這些年 一個人 風也過 雨也走
zhe xie nian yi ge ren feng ye guo yu ye zou

有過淚 有過錯 還記得堅持什麼
you guo lei you guo cuo hai ji de jian chi shen me

真愛過 才會懂 會寂寞 會回首
zhen ai guo cai hui dong hui ji mo hui hui shou

終有夢 終有你 在心中
zhong you meng zhong you ni zai xin zhong

朋友 一生一起走 那些日子 不再有
peng you yi sheng yi qi zou na xie ri zi bu zai you

一句話 一輩子 一生情 一杯酒
yi ju hua yi bei zi yi sheng qing yi bei jiu

朋友 不曾孤單過 一聲朋友 你會懂
peng you bu ceng gu dan guo yi sheng peng you ni hui dong

還有傷 還有痛 還要走 還有我
hai you shang hai you tong hai yao zou hai you wo

童話 (Tong Hua) by 光良 (Guang Liang)

January 1, 2008 at 12:27 am (* Easy, Chinese lyrics, Male Singers, Pinyin lyrics) (, )


It’s perfectly fitting that the first song I’m adding is the first Chinese song I ever learned. The video is touching, the characters are mostly easy to read, and 光良 is awfully cute. Enjoy!

忘了有多久 再沒聽到你 對我說你最愛的故事
wang le you duo jiu zai mei ting dao ni dui wo shuo ni zui ai de gu shi

我想了很久 我開始慌了 是不是我又做錯了甚麼
wo xiang le hen jiu wo kai shi huang le shi bu shi wo you zuo cuo le shen me

你哭著對我說 童話裡都是騙人的
ni ku zhe dui wo shuo tong hua li dou shi pian ren de

我不可能是你的王子
wo bu ke neng shi ni de wang zi

也許你不會懂 從你說愛我以後
ye xu ni bu hui dong cong ni shuo ai wo yi hou

我的天空星星都亮了
wo de tian kong xing xing dou liang le

(Chorus)

我願變成童話裡 你愛的那個天使
wo yuan bian cheng tong hua li ni ai de na ge tian shi

張開雙手 變成翅膀守護你
zhang kai shuang shou bian cheng chi bang shou hu ni

你要相信 相信我們會像童話故事裡
ni yao xiang xin xiang xin wo men hui xiang tong hua go shi li

幸福和快樂是結局
xing fu he kuai le shi jie ju

你哭著對我說 童話裡都是騙人的
ni ku zhe dui wo shuo tong hua li dou shi pian ren de

我不可能是你的王子
wo bu ke neng shi ni de wang zi

也許你不會懂 從你說愛我以後
ye xu ni bu hui dong cong ni shuo ai wo yi hou

我的天空星星都亮了
wo de tian kong xing xing dou liang le

(Repeat Chorus)

我要變成童話裡 你愛的那個天使
wo yao bian cheng tong hua li ni ai de na ge tian shi

張開雙手 變成翅膀守護你
zhang kai shuang shou bian cheng chi bang shou hu ni

你要相信 相信我們會像童話故事裡
ni yao xiang xin xiang xin wo men hui xiang tong hua go shi li

幸福和快樂是結局
xing fu he kuai le shi jie ju

我會變成童話裡 你愛的那個天使
wo hui bian cheng tong hua li ni ai de na ge tian shi

張開雙手 變成翅膀守護你
zhang kai shuang shou bian cheng chi bang shou hu ni

你要相信 相信我們會像童話故事裡
ni yao xiang xin xiang xin wo men hui xiang tong hua go shi li

幸福和快樂是結局
xing fu he kuai le shi jie ju

哦~ 一起寫我們的結局
ou~~~ yi qi xie wo men de jie ju
