CeeJay's Pick of the Month (Feburary) -周柏豪 Pakho Chau - 近在千里 (feat. 衛蘭)

Hello!

We have been looking through some new songs this month and to our surprise, only a couple of HK songs have been released. The most memorable song we heard this month was Pakho's 近在千里 (feat. 衛蘭 Janice). We were quite excited to hear this collaboration, knowing that both are considered "better" singers in the cantopop industry today. Unfortunately, Janice only had a couple of lines to sing near the end. We would have preferred it if she had a more prominent part of the song with solo parts, so you can better hear her soft voice. The instrumental part was too loud and this song was a waste for her singing. Pakho's singing is on par with his usual style (soft, slower songs). The tune is comforting and overall likable. The only thing we find with Pakho is that he can be a bit boring sometimes and doesn't have much to show off for his vocal techniques.

What we are really interested in is the music video. We noticed that it's the same girl from his last MV, a…

Destination Nowhere 迷 TVB Theme Songs Review

Image
Hello! We hope you've been doing well! Today we are going to introduce Destination Nowhere's new theme song sung by Fred Cheng. 
We are enjoying this song and we definitely got an unsettling vibe from it, which we think is intended, since the drama seems to be mysterious and the title means "maze/lost", so it is probably going to be confusing? Fred's voice displays great emotion and there is a tone of gloominess and sorrow to the song, unlike his usual rock songs. We think Fred can do a wide range of songs, from heartwarming family themes to ones like this. Lyrics wise, it is fitting for the drama but once again if you are just listening to it on a daily basis, then we would say it's weird like a bunch of TVB theme songs. 
This song is quite standard for TVB theme songs these days so we aren't too "wow"ed. There hasn't been one for a while and it looks like they're changing things up with HANA under their company. Hope to see a new them…
