We want to have some feedback so we have an idea of what songs to consider featuring next time. This poll will be up until August 31st so make sure you head to the sidebar of our blog and select the songs you like! If you want to hear or re-listen to the songs, go to the "Labels" section on the sidebar and click on the "Pick of the Month" label to view all our CeeJay Pick of the Month Posts which include the youtube videos of the featured songs.


Thanks and see you next time!

CeeJay's Pick of the Month (June) - 王浩信 Vincent & 譚嘉儀 Kayee - 陪著你走 (合唱版)

It's crazy how fast time passes! It felt like yesterday when we published our first CeeJay's Pick of the Month post, but that was actually last June!

We got a few requests to feature Vincent Wong and Kayee Tam's duet rendition of Lowell Lo's 陪著你走 for June. We previously did a review on My Unfair Lady (不懂撒嬌的女人) theme songs and already talked about Kayee's version of the song which was the sub-theme for the drama. Because Vincent's character, Saving, sang this song to the Cherry, played by Natalie Tong, fans have been swooning over these romantic scenes and requesting him to release an official recording of the song.

Although, a solo version was not released by Vincent, he did collaborate with Kayee to sing a duet after the drama aired.

We think that Vincent has a pleasant voice that complements the song very well and we are glad he got to sing a good portion of the song. Kayee's part is the same as her sub-theme, which is comforting and warm. There's no harmonizing between the two though. Each singer sings a part and then at the end they sing the chorus together. The whole song is not rushed and the singers are very natural here; they aren't trying to show off their voices in a forceful way (like screaming and yelling) or trying to squeeze fake emotions through every word that is sung. The pacing of the song is good as it's not too slow that makes it boring and not too fast.

The MV contains clips from My Unfair Lady which are mainly Saving and Cherry's love story. The only complaint is we don't understand Kayee's presence in the MV and it disrupts the whole story, having no purpose other than to point out the fact that Kayee is a part of the song as well. Kayee had her own MV already, so there's no need to put clips of her MV into this one. It should have been fully Saving and Cherry's story.

We are overall really pleased with their interpretation of this song.

男:
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

女:
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

合:
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

男:
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
