Daria on DVD Soon!!

Okay, my Chinese music has taken over my Asian music as of lately. So I felt I should make another playlist =D – I feel this is an interesting list, even though I couldn’t find a good video for Vae (is he that independent?), and was able to find only one video for Yuguo =’-(

  1. Yuguo – You Jian La Tian (Hello, Blue Sky)
  2. Mayday – Sheng Cun Yi Shang Sheng Huo Yi Xia
    (More than Surviving, Less than Living)
  3. Cheer Chen – Ji Ta Shou (Groupies)
  4. Crowd Lu – Wo Ai Ni (I Love You)
  5. LaLa – O Yi Xi (Oh, Easy)
  6. Vae – Ru Guo Dang Shi (In the Event that) – Not a video.
  7. Cheer Chen – Deng Dai (Waiting for You)
  8. Mayday – Bao Gan (Liver-busting)
  9. Milk@Coffee – Ran Shao Ba! Xiao Yu Zhou (Burn! Little Universe)
  10. Crowd Lu – Yi Bai Zhong Sheng Guo (100 Ways for Living)

I love how this list turned out, kinda like telling a story… right? Like just beginning your day with a certain energy, then chilling down a bit, until is not so easy xD and then bam! Liver-busting *laughs* – Combustion!!! Big Bang!!! And finally life goes on… xD

I was looking back on music videos this past weekend (which, by the way marked amy-wong.com’s 4th anniversary) because I was watching Michael Jackson music videos and thinking “wow, how come I don’t like watching music videos now” – at least I don’t watch videos of most music I listen to in English, though I’m generally impressed with Asian Pop Music Videos.

When I was little, well… a pre-teen and teenage girl fuzzing about the Backstreet Boys and Britney Spears with my friends at school, I began to notice director’s names. MTV (which I pretty much used to watch almost 24/7) used to show the Name of the Song + Name of the Artist + Name of Album + Name of Director. They did this until the beginning of 2002 or 2003 when the Director’s name suddenly disappeared from the credits. I dunno if it’s back, and I dunno if it was because I just went to Canada. LOL

One of the first names I noticed was, of course, Nigel Dick.

If I could describe Nigel Dick’s style of music-video-making when I was a kid, I would say “simply brilliant” – not because I was naive and didn’t really know much about the business, but because his videos were simple, but yet so full of life. Perhaps, the easiest way to show it is with a simple video such as Oasis’ Wonderwall.

and Chinese in general.

Taking example of Julz’ K-pop YouTube list – But then MTV Iggy is not as cool, LOL – I decided to make a 12-song playlist in YouTube… mainly because I didn’t wanna upload anything here. Plus, as much as I love my cassette playlists via MixWit~~~ watching videos is way cooler.

The thing is, you gotta watch ALL the videos, and watch them in order because there’s a reason for me putting the songs in that order. LOL’ It’s the vibe. The videos I chose are cool to watch, music is great.

Hope that you enjoy them. And I am looking for more Chinese musicians and groups… out of this world music. Not simply pop. That’s a reason I didn’t name it MandoPop or Cpop list. ;P – Music like Faye Wong who is still not back, though Fayenatics are abuzz~~~

  1. Faye Wong – Jiang Ai (To Love)
  2. Lee-hom Wang – Gai Bian Zi Ji (Change Me)
  3. Bibi Chow (Zhou Bichang) – WOW
  4. David Tao – Hei Se Liu Ding (Black Tangerine)
  5. Jay Chou – Fa Ru Xue (Hair-like Snow)
  6. Chris Lee (Li Yuchun) – Shao Nian Zhong Guo (Youth of China)
  7. Jay Chou – Dao Xiang (Rice Aroma)
  8. Chris Lee (Li Yuchun) – Cha Sheng (Poor Student)
  9. Bibi Chow (Zhou Bichang) – Wei Le Ren Shi Ni (Just to Meet You)
  10. Lee-hom Wang – Zai Mei Bian (Beside the Plum Blossoms)
  11. David Tao – Gui (Ghost)
  12. Faye Wong – Bu Liu – No Staying

Did you know MTV had a ‘world’ ish brand now?

MTV Iggy – which always ends up as MT Biggy when I say it. T.T

Is that part of the answer to my demands? Also… why not pimp JPop? Is it because MTV Japan exists?

ALSO, why is BaiLing there… O.ox *sighs*

I managed to see BoA there, as well as Jay Chou… Nicky Lee, Lee-Hom Wang~~ Wondergirls, 2PM? But you know what, why don’t I leave you with a playlist Julyssa herself made for sharing~~~

To sort of close the month~~~ she doesn’t allow embedding, but hopefully you’ll be able to click on this link.

PS: We have a full-month worth of posts!!! xD
