My Unfair Lady -不懂撒嬌的女人 TVB Theme Songs Review

Hey! We're gonna be introducing the two new songs for My Unfair Lady, TVB's first 4K drama filmed entirely out of the studio. 

The theme song is sung by Stephanie Ho. She's never really had a song that we didn't like and that goes for this song too. 

For the most part the lyrics fit the drama well and the meaning is quite literal. There are just some weird phrases that we felt were awkward like 才換到結果花開. Normally it would be 開花結果 but probably because of the tune, they had to rearrange the saying... still makes sense? What's lacking for us is the melody, this one is not to memorable and catchy. We were hoping for such a hyped drama, the song would be longer and easier to catch onto. Instead this is just the first verse repeated at the very end and then three repeated choruses to fill up time that still doesn't make 3 minutes.

何雁詩 Stephanie - 我不會撒嬌 (劇集 "不懂撒嬌的女人" 主題曲)


曲:張家誠 
詞:張美賢 
編:張家誠 
監:何哲圖/韋景雲 

殘酷世代 置身千次競賽 才學會自強忍耐
沉悶有害 難道必須裝可愛 才換到結果花開

當 群眾喧嘩太紛擾 誰又聽到我心跳
能做個淑女我偏懶去撒嬌
若非 誠意不必再騷擾 留住這青春很需要
爭取分秒 明確對焦

無視障礙 理想超重負載 誰讓我值回等待
從沒替代 難道經得起感慨
能共你永不分開

當 群眾喧嘩太紛擾 誰又聽到我心跳
能做個淑女我偏懶去撒嬌
若非 誠意不必再騷擾 難道求生都必需要
懂得怎笑 練到細腰 來炫耀

當 群眾喧嘩太紛擾 誰又聽到我心跳
還用愛讓我記得怎去撒嬌
明知 誠意畢竟那麼少 而幸福憧憬多飄渺
真心需要 時間揭曉

殘酷世代 置身千次競賽 良善也倖存心內
情像意外 緣份可一不可再
這份情 我偏不想放開

The ending theme song is by HANA, The Voice Entertainment's newest female singer (kind-of a Jinny replacement). We think her voice is pretty unique but it's a little hollow and shaky? Definitely a good singer for sad love songs but for powerful, inspirational ones she would not be our first pick. This song is alright but we need to be brainwashed a couple times before it sits in haha. This is one of HANA's first songs that we have paid attention to despite her many singles on the channel from before joining Voice Ent. She does remind us of Jinny a little (but with a more powerful voice) and hopefully they give her some good songs to sing. 

Talking about the song, again the chorus is repeated three times, and we've mentioned this too many times in other song posts but where is the bridge...? Guess that's just out the door for all songs from this company. We can only comment on the repetition of this song and some of the weird lyrics again. There was one suggestion that we thought of that would work better in our opinion. For the '昨' (yesterday) in the line 星火燦爛如昨 也是場幻覺, we thought it could be replaced by 初 (beginning). It flows a little better in our opinion and also makes more sense in the context of the lyrics. 

HANA - 手中沙 (劇集 "不懂撒嬌的女人" 片尾曲) Official MV



曲:張家誠 
詞:張美賢 
編:張家誠 
監:何哲圖/韋景雲 

習慣每天加班的工作 怎麼仍然寂寞
習慣喝水潤澤沒有幻想的乾涸
在夜靜望向熒幕 逃離圍城的束縛
星火燦爛如昨 也是場幻覺

緣份只差半秒又亂了次序
情像手中的沙在罅隙跑去
辦公室裡 咖啡廳裡 和背影一對
場地只差半吋又誤了散聚
情人差點走失至努力爭取
望穿秋水 望穿秋水 靈魂的伴侶

大概再多狠狠的揮霍 心中仍然落寞
害怕舞會獨獨剩了自己的感覺
何年從何處尋獲 暖暖情人的肩膊
可給笑著投靠 以未來付託

緣份只差半秒又亂了次序
情像手中的沙在罅隙跑去
辦公室裡 咖啡廳裡 和背影一對
場地只差半吋又誤了散聚
情人差點走失至努力爭取
望穿秋水 望穿秋水 靈魂的伴侶

緣份只差半秒又亂了次序
情像手中的沙在罅隙跑去
辦公室裡 咖啡廳裡 和背影一對
場地只差半吋又誤了散聚
沿路兜彎分岔再折磨下去
望穿秋水 望穿秋水 如盪失風裡

Kayee also sings an old classic 陪著你走 that is used in the drama. It was first played in episode 7 and it feels like they just had to get Kayee a song too so all the female singers had something for this drama. We thought it was unnecessary to redo this song and the arrangement isn't anything mind-blowing. She sings well and her voice is soft and soothing, but it would've been nice for her to have an original song.

誰說 時間片刻變陳舊
全為我分秒亦停留
因我 身邊有你緊握我的手

而愛 誰說永不會長壽
陪著你一生到白頭
都能  把心中星星閃得通透

陪著你走 一生一世也不分
天天編出兩雙足印 過千山過千海
如果 走到這世界邊端
我倆已是無力前行 跟我一起飛去

不相信 時間片刻變陳舊
全為你分秒亦停留
因你 身邊有我緊握你的手

這份愛 誰說永不會長壽
陪著我一生到白頭
都能 把心中星星閃得通透

陪著你走 一生一世也不分
天天編出兩雙足印 過千山過千海
如果 走到這世界邊端
我倆已是無力前行 跟我一起飛去

誰說 時間片刻變陳舊
全為我分秒亦停留
因我 身邊有你緊握我的手

Thanks for reading our post and check out the new songs!
