Over a week later and I’m still hungover with Jay :p Tunes I listed below were in my head all week, and since it’s dreadful Monday, I want to share the joy with you.
Here’s the 101 on the master of diao: Practically every Mandarin-speaking population have at least heard one song by Jay Chou. The Taiwanese artist plays the piano, guitar, cello, flute, drums, violin, and various traditional Chinese instruments. He makes films, he loves his mother, and he’s cute. Oh yes, and his beverage of choice is a glass of milk.
Other than that, when it comes to music, variety is his nature. His albums always has that one upbeat song, that super emo one that almost always become chart-toppers, and the one with zhong guo feng. Because you’re hearing it from me, I’m gonna say everything he does is great.
Depending on which of these emotions you’d like to get a dose of right now, you can get them from Jay Chou. If you’re a girl and you understand Mandarin (i.e. the lyrics), these songs will work doubly on you. Guys, stay straight.
Without further ado, ENJOY.
