TV Music: 我愛他 (Wo Ai Ta) by 丁噹 (Ding Dang)

March 8, 2010 at 11:46 pm (*** Difficult, Chinese lyrics, Female Singers, Pinyin lyrics, Television soundtracks) (, )


Another TV theme song that has gotten a lot of play lately is the opener for 下一站,幸福 (Autumn’s Concerto), a popular show which only recently concluded. The video for the song is unrelated to the series, however, and stars my favorite actor from 痞子英雄 (Black & White), 修杰楷.

In terms of song difficulty, I’m rating this as difficult for two main reasons: 1) the vocabulary in it could be classified as upper intermediate, and 2) you’ll need a good vocal range to pull off this song regardless of your Chinese ability. The final chorus pushes it up to a high C#, for which most non-sopranos would have to switch to falsetto. My best advice is, if you can’t hit the high notes, change the key. This is possible via the remote control/computer at most Taiwanese KTVs and with many types of audio software. Good luck!

他的輕狂留在 某一節車廂
ta de qing kuang liu zai mou yi jie che xiang

地下鐵裡的風 比回憶還重
di xia tie li de feng bi hui yi hai chong

整座城市一直等著我
zheng zuo cheng shi yi zhi deng zhe wo

有一段感情還在漂泊
you yi duan gan qing hai zai piao bo

對他唯一遺憾 是分手那天
dui ta wei yi yi han shi fen shou na tian

我奔騰的眼淚 都停不下來
wo ben teng de yan lei dou ting bu xia lai

若那一刻重來 我不哭
ruo na yi ke chong lai wo bu ku

讓他知道我可以很好
rang ta zhi dao wo ke yi hen hao

(Chorus)

我愛他 轟轟烈烈最瘋狂
wo ai ta  hong hong lie lie zui feng kuang

我 的夢 狠狠碎過卻不會忘
wo de meng hen hen sui guo que bu hui wang

曾為他 相信明天就是未來
ceng wei ta xiang xin ming tian jiu shi wei lai

情節有多壞 都不肯醒來
qing jie you duo huai  dou by ken xing lai

我愛他 跌跌撞撞到絕望
wo ai ta die die zhuang zhuang dao jue wang

我的心 深深傷過卻不會忘
wo de xin shen shen shang guo que bu hui wang

我和他 不再屬於這個地方
wo he ta  bu zai shu yu zhe ge di fang

最初的天堂 最終的荒唐
zui chu de tian tang  zui zhong de huang tang

如果還有遺憾 又怎麼樣呢
ru guo hai you yi han  you zen me yang ne

傷了痛了懂 了 就能好了嗎
shang le tong le dong le  jiu neng hao le ma

曾經依靠彼此的肩膀
ceng jing yi kao bi ci de jian bang

如今各自在人海流浪
ru jin ge zi zai ren hai liu lang

我愛他 轟轟烈烈最瘋狂
wo ai ta  hong hong lie lie zui feng kuang

我 的夢 狠狠碎過卻不會忘
wo de meng hen hen sui guo que bu hui wang

逃 不開 愛越深越互相傷害
tao bu kai ai yue shen yue hu xiang shang hai

越深的依賴 越多的空白 該怎麼去愛
yue shen de yi lai    yue duo de kong bai    gai zen me qu ai

(Repeat chorus – higher key)

如果還有遺憾 是分手那天
ru guo hai you yi han  shi fen shou na tian

我奔騰的眼淚 都停不下來
wo ben teng de yan lei dou ting bu xia lai

若那一刻重來 我不哭
ruo na yi ke chong lai wo bu ku

讓他知道我可以很好
rang ta zhi dao wo ke yi hen hao

TV Music: 雨愛 (Yu Ai) by 楊丞琳 (Yang Cheng Lin/Rainie Yang)

February 2, 2010 at 9:17 pm (** Medium, Chinese lyrics, Female Singers, Pinyin lyrics, Television soundtracks) (, , )


Many songs that become popular in Taiwan are not from movies, but from the idol dramas that begin and end every couple of months. Most often, the “idols” starring in the dramas are singers who have been tossed into the acting business (or vice versa), since everyone knows that all singers can act, and all actors can sing. Obviously.

Thus, very often, the theme songs from the TV shows are sung by the stars of those programs. One of the most recent examples of this is a song which is currently popular at KTVs, 雨愛, by Rainie Yang. The song played during the closing credits of 海派甜心, a drama that just ended this past week. The show starred Rainie Yang and Alan Luo (羅志祥/小豬), and featured music by both singers.

As I add more TV theme songs in the future, I’ll do my best to include some show information for those who want it. However, if you’re really into Asian dramas (Taiwanese or otherwise), I really recommend checking out DramaWiki. It’s a decent English wiki on Asian dramas, and is usually more complete than Wikipedia itself when it comes to information in English.

***Incidentally, if you really like Rainie Yang, she’s expected at Riverside Live House in Ximending at 3pm this Saturday (February 6) to promote her new album. Riverside has no info on their website, but some info is here (Chinese): http://www.sonybmg.com.tw/pop/rainie/p2.php

窗外的天氣 就像是 你多變的表情
chuang wai de tian qi   jiu xiang shi  ni duo bian de biao qing

下雨了 雨陪我哭泣 看不清 我也不想看清
xia yu le  yu pei wo ku qi   kan bu qing  wo ye bu xiang qing

離開你 我安靜的抽離 不忍揭曉的劇情
li kai ni  wo an jin de chou li   bu ren jie xiao de ju qing

我的淚流在心裡 學會放棄
wo de lei liu zai xin li  xue hui fang qi

Chorus:

聽雨的聲音 一滴滴清晰
ting yu de sheng yin  yi di di qing xi

你的呼吸像雨滴滲入我的愛裡
ni de hu xi xiang yu di shen ru wo de ai li

真希望雨能下不停
zhen xi wang yu neng xia bu ting

讓想念繼續 讓愛變透明
rang xiang nian ji xu rang ai bian tou ming

我愛上給我勇氣的 Rainie Love
wo ai shang gei wo yong qi de Rainie Love

窗外的雨滴 一滴滴累積
chuang wai de yu di  yi di di lei ji

屋內的濕氣像儲存愛你的記憶
wu nei de shi qi xiang chu cun ai ni de ji yi

真希望雨能下不停
zhen xi wang yu neng xia bu ting

雨愛的秘密 能一直延續
yu ai de mi mi neng yi zhi yan xu

我相信我將會看到 彩虹的美麗
wo xiang xin wo jiang hui kan dao cai hong de mei li

冷冷的空氣 很窒息 我無法呼吸
leng leng de kong qi  hen zhi xi  wo wu fa hu xi

一萬顆 雨滴的距離 很徹底 讓愛消失無息
yi wan ke  yu di de ju li  hen che di  rang ai xiao shi wu xi

離開你 我安靜的抽離 不忍揭曉的劇情
li kai ni  wo an jing de chou li  bu ren jie xiao de ju qing

我的淚流在心裡 學會放棄
wo de lei liu zai xin li  xue hui fang qi

Chorus

屋內的濕氣像儲存愛你的記憶
wu nei de shi qi xiang chu cun ai ni de ji yi

真希望雨能下不停
zhen xi wang yu neng xia bu ting

雨愛的秘密 能一直延續
yu ai de mi mi neng yi zhi yan xu

我相信我將會看到 彩虹的美麗
wo xiang xin wo jiang hui kan dao cai hong de mei li
