Dear Li Shan !

Yes, you got it ! It was "Trapped by Love" - Thank you very much !thumbright Do you know more about ?
You must know, I only can listen Tonys songs (and all other Asian musik I love) with my heart - cannot understand words at all - English titles are helping a bit, but though I have no idea what he sings about ! (Guess mostly about love and/or lost - as western songs too - haha)

So I often have problems to remember the various titles (and often the title-translations are different.....or Chinese.....and Asian music is very different to ours - often sounds simillar....) - but I like it !

Hello again hamberger362 and lishan627,

Thanks for letting me know the title of the song.
This song was recorded in 94 ?
I also haven't heard this song before.
Perhaps some HK fans know about this song.

I think the song title's meaning is like "Old Love(r) New Heartache" ?
Perhaps this doesn't make sense in English ? but translating Chinese song title into English is not so easy. Sad

Dear Helga,

That's what I thought. Wink

Dear fellow fans,

Can I join your conversation? Smile
I like Tony's songs too ! But just like Helga, since I don't speak chinese, so I just listen it by heart. Wink

Btw I collect some of Tony's CDs and karaoke too. Although nowadays its very difficult to get, since Tony is not making any new album anymore. Sad

Dear lishan627,
about DVD Blind Romance, if u want to buy it, u can try to search it on ebay. I've just bought it on ebay on last year. And its quite good. I also bought some of Tony's old movies there, since I can't found it in any shop in HK.

Cheers,
Cisca

Hello Cisca - nice to join our Tony-songs-exchange of ideas Smile

Which of his songs do you like best ?

You Asian fans have much more opportunities to listen or to get CDs , have an easier access - and - perhaps more conversance/familiarity with the sound of Asian popular music also ? (simillar to the different European languages and "styles" for me)Wink

Have a comfortable day !
Helga

Dear Helga,
I'm glad that the links did help you to recall the song Smile Perhaps, you can try learning Mandarin/ Cantonese so that you can understand Tony's songs and movies ? Smile

Ermm I think most of the chinese songs do not have a particular "official" english translation for their titles... sometimes it can be hard to translate directly from the title...

hope you can explore more about the beauty of asian music!

Cheers~

Li Shan

Dear Li Shan - funny girl !Smile

No chance to learn Cantonese or Mandarin anymore - my brain cells are tooo obsolete already and the rest is too lazy (if only I were younger..........) BUT as compensation, my heart is younger than me and works fine - is universal and helps to listen, to watch.....l - is always curious !Wink

Dear Helga, hamberger362 , Eri , Li Shan and Cisca

I also like Tony's voice and singing songs very much. Please let me join.
His songs make me happy and comfortable and inspire.
This song 舊愛新傷( Old Love(r), New Heartache) is in his CD album 爲情所困( trapped by Love).

是愛是恨是情是網 也許有如戀戀紅塵一場 一頁頁的過往 佈滿你的淚光
說淚說恨說愁說謊 也許說的只是悲傷一場 在愛情兩旁
舊愛新傷 誰的愛恨都一樣 誰的承諾不憂傷 誰的多情不迷惘
舊愛新傷 只剩我在情路上 狂喜狂悲演出真情一場 你可曾忘

舊愛新傷 誰的愛恨都一樣 誰的承諾不憂傷 誰的多情不迷惘
舊愛新傷 只剩我在情路上 狂喜狂悲演出真情一場 你可曾忘

有痛有笑有淚有狂 也許只是猶如幻夢一樣 細訴昨日滄桑 把舊夢都收藏
一生一世地久天長 換我的心與你爲伴 我的愛永遠不忘

This song is one of my favorite songs.
But I can't translate into English. I'm really sorry.

Please translate this song. Thank you very much in advance.

Anny

Thank you very much for sending the lyrics of one of your favourite Tony-songs ! Will see if I can find it in my little "Tony-Songs-Repertoire"
I am very curious about the title and the lyrics. Wink

Hope somebody of "our experts" has a minute to spare - and is able to translate - Thank you in advance !!!salute

Best wishes - and have a nice evening !Waving

Dear Helga,

The song anny mentioned above was the one you wanted to know about.

I had a chance to speak to her this afternoon, so I asked her to check it up for you.

Her answer was
>This song ·Rs( Old Love(r), New Heartache) is in his CD album 爲ҧx( trapped for Love).

I am afraid translating Chinese song's lyrics into English is too difficult (I think you need special poetry skills besides the language to do that) for me, so I hope someone can help you. Wink

Joining in the conversation!

Wow, I didn't know Tony was known for singing too. To be honest I've never heard him sing aside from watching Chinese Odyssey 2002. Embarassed

Welcome to join in ~~

Tony has been singing since the 80s and has released quite a number of albums since then. Personally, I love his singing as much as his acting Smile He's got a very good vocal.. Perhaps you can start by listening to the theme song of "Sound of colours" sung by Tony and Miriam Yeung... and of course, the theme song of "Infernal affairs" !!

Dear Eri

Thank you very much for asking Anny! I guess it is really hard to translate lyrics without loosing the poetry. Nevetheless -many thanks for your prompt answer and trying !

Hello sparkles_n15 !
Try to watch some videos in Youtube.

In my opinion Tony does not feel soooo comfortable when singing (compared with acting) but always interpretes his songs (especially the soft ones) very sensitive and sincerely - with his characteristically timbre (we love). In the duets with Faye in "CO" he is really funny!
