The other day, as I was searching for videos for my Mando Pop post, I came across a few music videos of Shiga Lin 连诗雅. I’m impressed. Impressed enough that I want to blog about it.
Now, if you do not know who she is, you might remember the horny movie from Hong Kong a few years back, 喜爱夜蒲 Lan Kwai Fong. She is the female lead for this movie. I say horny rather than porn because I don’t remember there are any “pointy things” revealed in the movie itself 😀 .
Back then, she sang one of the theme songs for the movie [I’m Still Loving You] which I felt was quite good. In fact that song was quite popular as it made it’s rounds with all the major radio stations.
I thought it was just a one off performance from her. Didn’t even bother to find out if she had other songs under her belt. Until yesterday.
Here’s a few of her other songs that I listened to yesterday. Now, if you decide to check these songs out, please move past her semi porn star image and really listen to the song. I don’t want you to say I am influenced by her horny image. I won’t hear it 😐 .
I don’t know about you, but I feel subtly impressed with these few performances, they remind me of Joey Yung 容祖儿 of the early days when she was singing songs like this one:
I don’t mean their vocals, Joey obviously has stronger vocals. What I meant is the feeling of the songs. They both made me feel very comfortable yet emotional when listening.
Maybe I have been quite harsh with Hong Kong pop industry of late. I think I might start searching for more new generation Hong Kong singers and see what else I can get. If Shiga is a measure of what they are like nowadays, I might start paying attention to Hong Kong music again.
