Music Monday: January 6, 2014

Here to make Monday a little easier =)

Here to make Monday a little easier =)

Every time I finish Music Monday I tell myself “I will do this over the weekend next time.” But next time comes around and I’m still doing it on Monday… *hanging head in shame*

Here’s a peace-offering – The CD version of the smoke covered collaborative song by Zhang Liang 张亮 and Tiantian 天天(张悦轩) I am Not An Idol 我不是男神, written for him by Ning Huanyu.

(12 videos below the cut)

Second generation singer Huo Zun 霍尊 (son of Huo Feng 火风?) brought Liu Huan 刘欢 to tears on Sing My Song 中国好歌曲 with his original composition Rolling the Beaded Curtain (?) 卷珠簾.

While the Aquarium Couple (Yu Gang/鱼缸夫妻) Ning Huanyu 宁桓宇 and Bai Jugang 白举纲 figure out who tops in the relationship, let us enjoy their self-written collaboration on Shenzhen TV’s The Generation Show 年代秀.

Zeng Yiming 曾一鸣 makes a return after participating on HNTV’s X-Factor China. Like a Lunatic 像疯了一样, the second single from his re-debut, is a remake/cover of the same titled song by Qi Qin 齐秦. Zeng Yiming performed his song live on HNTV’s NY Concert.

Singer/Composer/Producer Liam Yang Lin 杨蔺 finally made a song for himself, Distance 遥远 and You Are Not Me 你不是我.

  1. Huo Zun wrote that himself? It’s very nice. China is being overrun with these contest singers rather than artists it feels.

    • I think there’s a very thin line between those two, though. Even the most iconic of contest singers, Li Yuchun, is actually a pretty good song writer. At least to me, most of her lyrics are better than this song, although his voice is obviously stronger.

  2. Chen Yanfei looks really pretty in the MV!

    That’s really cute that Ning Huanyu and Bai Jugang wrote a song just for that song. The 2013 boys all seem to be having so much fun just with each other and music. Have you been following the Spring Gala news? What are your thoughts on the chances of the Super Boys going on the Spring Festival Gala?

    Super off-topic, but this entire post reminded me of BoBo T_T Zhang Liang and Tiantian, the YuGang video led me to one of OuYang singing Glory when I was looking for the full show, and then the Zeng Yiming song is the one either FXB or JBR recommended when they split up. T_T

    • Hua Chenyu, Zuo Li, and Bai Jugang is in the Top 10 =) I think Bai Jugang has the best chance of getting onto the Spring Gala (as part of an ensemble performance), he has a family friendly presence, and he looks like the boy-next-door. Hua Chenyu wouldn’t make it into the final round, he’s performance style is too out there for the Spring Gala. Zuo Li has his “issues”… I feel like eeMedia stopped promoting him after the show ended. I have a feeling they might drop him (or leave him to fend for himself) after the Super Boy Tour ends =/

      Bobo </3 I was just listening to them yesterday. Why don't thinks ever work out for duet? BOBO JL =( I hope Ju Laidi/Fan Shiqi group isn't a permanent thing.

      • I didn’t watch it, but didn’t Hua Chengyu make it into the top 10 first, though?
        I’m surprised that HOPE still exists … also, Yu Quan’s still together! They were so cute on I am Singer 2.

        • I didn’t watch it either, I read it in the news and looked up some clips later. Hua Chenyu made it into the top 10 =)

          LOL! Right?! I can’t believe HOPE is still around but Liu Yutong is too old for them and once he leaves they’re done. Is it me or did their new single sound like a mashup of 1D songs?
