CeeJay's Pick of the Month (October) - 雷深如 (J.Arie) - 無神論

Image
Happy Halloween!!!!!

We are introducing another song today by J.Arie. To be frank, there weren't any new songs that really stood out to us this month. This was the song that was better than a lot of the new releases. This is the first time we have introduced J.Arie on our song posts because we only listen one or two songs from her.

The intro is a bit weird - it kind of gives off an eerie feel (which is suitable for Halloween haha), but the chorus sounds better and makes it easy to get into the song. Then after the chorus is sung once, the music becomes weird again...but she did compose it herself, so that deserves credit. Overall, the song doesn't flow together too well, but the chorus is like the normal HK pop.

The music video is unnecessary and doesn't do anything to enhance the music. Also, we're not digging J.Arie's hair which also looks unbrushed. There's also randomly a girl who dances in the video which doesn't really make sense to us. We suggest not…

My Favourite TVB Drama Theme Song: "Forgot Myself" - Hana Kuk (Line Walker: The Prelude)
Thoughts: It's pretty impressive how this is Hana's first year singing TVB theme songs, and she already gets an award for singing. We are pretty happy with this choice, since there weren't necessarily too many great and outstanding theme songs this year. This was a good ending theme song, and we appreciate how it wasn't overplayed in the drama so we could get a chance to ac…

CeeJay's Pick of the Month (September) - C AllStar - 此刻無價

Image
Wow, it's hard to believe that it's already the end of September, and autumn is already here!
 This month, the song that stood out most to us is C AllStar's 此刻無價. If you have been following our Pick of the Month posts, you would know that we have consistently recommended C AllStar songs. They are a wonderful music group in the HK music industry known for their distinctive use of harmonization in their songs. 
Right when the intro of the song began to play, we were already drawn into the comfort and calmness of the guitar. C AllStar's voices continue to bring this soothing feeling right until the end of the song. We like how this song strays from the overused topic of love and heartbreak, and instead, it focuses on the friendships that will last people a lifetime and the memories created with these people.
We really love the white border in the music video as it reminds us of memories captured in Polaroids, giving the whole piece a nostalgic feeling which fits the song…

Line Walker: The Prelude - 使徒行者2 TVB Theme Songs Review

Image
Hello! 
Hope you are all excited for the approaching anniversary drama season of TVB, since it seems like many big productions (including this one) are coming out soon for the 50th anniversay!
Today we will be reviewing the theme songs for the new TVB series, Line Walker: The Prelude (LW2), which is the second installment to Line Walker, a considerably successful TVB show of 2014. We have watched 5 episodes of this new show already, and we are loving the fast-pace and contrast of characters! It seems really promising right now, so we hope they won't mess up the middle or the ending (though it seems like a habitual thing in TVB dramas). 
The main theme song is called 天網 and is sung by Pakho Chau, who recently joined The Voice Entertainment Group, after leaving Warner Music Group. It seems pretty obvious that Voice Ent. is boosting Pakho to the "yat gor" position, especially with Alfred Hui gone. It's also surprising that Pakho is playing such a big role in this series, c…

CeeJay's Pick of the Month (August) - 林奕匡 Phil Lam - 有淚多好

Image
Happy August to everyone!


First of all, we have been busy redesigning our blog, so we have been slow on getting posts out. We hope you all like the new look of our blog. We also would like to apologize for the advertisements that appear on the site, as they come with the picture slider we are using and we cannot get rid of them. We will be looking for alternative sliders without ads; in the meantime, we hope that they won't hinder your experience at CeeJay's. 
Secondly, we want to introduce our August Pick of the Month which is Phil Lam's 有淚多好. It's been released in iTunes and other music platforms in July, but the official music video came out on August 8th on YouTube. This is our first time introducing one of Phil's songs, but we have always enjoyed his songs since his release of 高山低谷, a hit that greatly boosted his popularity.

One of the main reasons we liked this song is because it's not the common cantopop songs about love and breakups and all that. The son…
