For all heavenly king Jacky Cheung’s albums and songs, please do visit his Apple Music page:
This album contains two tracks that are my absolute life long love of Jacky. I was introduced to them by my buddies at a local KTV about 10 years back. Now, I sang them almost every time at KTV (although I can never reach his height of the pitch at all.. it is amazing how Jacky can reach that level).
One of the song, 离开以后, is about how a guy knows of how his girl is leaving him and how he felt about it. His first phrase is so touching. About how every topic he brings up does not seemed to suit her. About how small things make her angry. About how anyone can see she is leaving him. The 2nd phrase sang about how he hug her in bed but her eyes are not looking at him. That must be the most hurtful thing around.
Then the break up occurred and the chorus sang about how he felt about how useless and how inferior he felt. About how he does not care about the weather (literally meaning himself) and how he will stay at the current place (literally meaning not move on) and think about her day and night. About how in drunkness, he would still think of her.
The last part sang about even if he kisses someone in the future, he would feel that he would be just kissing her. His lost love in his life.
If you don’t cry when you hear this song, you really have not had a relationship that ever touched your heart. I almost always do when I listened and when I sang this song. I still do many years after I heard it. It is a most amazing sad song.
The other song that I loved so many years already is 这么近, 那么远, and its content is almost similar and I will discuss in again when I discuss the other album 过敏世界 where these two songs also appeared.
I am so sentimental recently…. So damn sentimental.
