Every once in a while, I need a dose of my guilty pleasure super cheesy love ballads. Ok, I admit I love this super cheesy chart aiming hit big ballad, especially hearing her singing live, it’s just part of me. Scold me in whichever way you like.
Similarly this calms you down. Good acoustic Canto-pop number. I think my heart always has a place for this little song, it’s always there even if I’m not huming to it or has it in my head. And he’s really likable.

We have to admit we’ve lost a great talent, and it’s time to remember some of her best moments. Amy only has 2 albums, while I think “Frank (2003)” is a great jazz/soul album, to be frank, um, my favorites all lie in “Back to Black (2006)”. Here are my 3 favorite Amy Winehouse singles:
The title seems sad, but oh my dear, this is like spring, it’s beautiful and shiny all over the song you can feel it, the “sha-la-la” ending just confirms it! A very interesting and sturdy number and the video is interesting too, look at Amy in there, it’s quite funny, lol.
It’s dreamy and slightly sad. It’s also very soft, soothing. Despite the title, it actually doesn’t feel that bad after hearing it. And the flow is very good. Outstanding track.
genre: r&b, soul, doo-wop, jazz rating: 4/5 stars
It’s probably Amy’s bad habits that took Amy’s life, but Amy’s an undeniably talented artist, let’s learn from her good but not her bad. I think she’ll be holding a place in many music lovers’ heart forever.
said your all mouth and no brains all rock stars go to heaven you said you’ll be dead at 27 when we drunk in a English tavern the owner poured you the Bourbon and you drunk your self so rotten he got so rich he bought a Bentley and moved himself to Devon
you started dirty dancing and you bar tended a dozen i took you to the clinic to get you clean but you couldn’t said in 2 days ur 27 and and ur destiny was comin and ur papa passed so sudden and left you with lil somin
you blew that money on a mountain of drugs and staged your self a bedin a month later when i popped in your still high but the winter set in i bought you a coffee and a muffin and you quoted me some Lenin i wished i was that clever but thats what kept me coming your friendship did mean somin but you left me for nothin when i left, you befriended a rope and i found you both were hanging.
I love “Sewn” and this renewed my love for their sound. And this is so happy, so if it is time to celebrate, celebrate with this song, ‘cos it seems nothing sounds happier than it recently… It’s like MEGA happy and it gives you strength. And… cheesy, oh yeah, I know why I’m so quickly in love with it now… lol
Undercurrents… oh yeah, I do miss my Asian diva Faye Wong, I wish she can come back and record a whole new album. Meanwhile, I’m being nostalgic and revisit this wonderful song back from 1997. It’s evergreen. Even for today, it still sounds fresh and fabulous and touches my heart. Oh yeah, I suddenly realise I do miss her a lot, a whole lot.
I love Tori. She may have lost her fire, but I enjoy this calm Tori too. She’s just being herself, telling how she feels, whether it’s angry or pleasant. I have to say I prefer the album version though, the brilliance is extended.
This comes from his 1999 mega album “Play”, so many wonderful things there. And this one is certainly comforting, with the use of some wonderful samples. It’s a little sad though, but I adore it, for some reason, this little song comes into my head from time to time. For the videos, I have to say I prefer the animated one, I like that slightly sad little fellow.
So besides this one, I have this one. I go for the super cheesy, lol~ I really think this isn’t that far away, but oops, it’s actually 1996 and it has a vintage feel already which I didn’t really realise before I went to revisit it. This one for the one I thought was warm and kind and a little silly, oops, it’s quite long ago also, lol.
Ok, let the celebration and exotic continues. Maybe people like her provocative side, to be honest, I like her fun, relaxed side which is fully reflected in this song. It’s such a strong, catchy, fun, exotic disco number I think many people will be immediately attracted to and move/ dance along.
This is such a lovely Chinese pop folk classic that I absolutely adore! It’s a nostalgic and romantic mando-pop/folk number. It’s basically about a guy who left his hometown to work in the city and he misses his old time girlfriend back in the village whom he describes as having “big beautiful eyes, thick long queue and kind and innocent” and he thanks her for her love which had accompanied him throughout that era… It’s innocent, it’s beautiful, so don’t let the language barrier keeps you from enjoying great music from all over the world! Let’s celebrate this festive time with this classic, simple yet wonderful, touching, beautiful song. It’s not only great for this time, it’s great for the coming valentine’s day too! ^_^
genre: chinese folk, chinese pop, mando-pop rating: 4.5/5 stars
