So I went to Xin Yao 32 the other day and I must say a few things
1. I was very impressed by the local Xin Yao Community.
2. Star Theater might be able to fit in 5,000 pax but the structure sure wasn't ready for it. The carpark was over flowing, lift was jammed up, escalator was over flowing as well. If there were to be a terrorist attack to happen there or maybe even a fire, everyone will die. DIE!
Enough of Digress.
I can't say I am a very big fan of Xin Yao because there were a lot of songs that threw me off the stage as well and I had no idea what song they were but they were all very good songs. So today I would like to share this song or rather songs that was performed by Jim Lim the other night. Yes, Jim Lim, I am sure a lot of you have no idea who he is right?
I always felt very wasted for the 3 of them. I always call them the local Beegees, good voice and very talented but I guess too bad for them that they are not exactly marketable. They are neither the most handsome nor the guys with some X factor. They were born in the era fighting against people like 5566 , energy and F4. How to fight? To be fair I did buy 2 of their 3 CDs!
Of course everyone remember their 不值得 and maybe also 天天好心情 and 守护星 but the truth is they made very nice music.
Jim was very humble that night, before he performed his song he actually mention that maybe most people would not know this song which is 代替 but that was actually my favorite song in the 881 album. Yes, we bought that album as well. We always believe in supporting local artist! I guess local artists are really not getting enough attention for their talent.
He did not just perform that song but he also made a mashup between this song and one of Liang Wen Fu Laoshi's song which is 秋心賦. I've never heard of this song but I was totally WOW by this song. If we think that 方文山 and his 中国风 is really solid, all i can say is that this song is nothing too far away from that standard.
Check out these two songs and try to imagine a mashup if you could. This is one thing I love about live concerts, special songs and the voices!
Mr.Smith, talent talent everywhere!!
