What I’ve been listening to be on repeat the last two weeks:   Dai Quan‘s  rearrangement of Emil Chau’s classic wuxia theme song,  刀劍如夢 A life of fighting is but a dream.  The addition of the Chinese opera elements and the poetry recitation, combined with Dai Quan’s own rougher voice makes the song scream wuxia from beginning to end.

There’s no live of him singing this (there is a duet, but the other guy’s not very good), so you have the added treat of watching Wang Kai as Shi Taipu while listening to this.
