About

Rating and consumer advice: PG13 (Some Coarse Language)

They say notes are the structure and rhythm is the heartbeat, but lyrics are the soul of a song. Lyrics are not often thought of as literary, but how can we overlook the compelling, delicate and heart-wrenching prose between the musical notes?

In this journey back to the origins of 'Ci' (‘词’ or lyrics) beginning in ancient China, These Words in Music takes us through our favourite Chinese pop songs, illustrating the artistry of contemporary lyricists such as James Wong(黄沾), Jonathan Lee (李宗盛), Albert Leung (林夕), Vincent Fang (方文山), Kwok-Kong Chen (郑国江), Tan Kah-Beng (陈佳明), Namewee (黄志明), and Wyman Wong (黄伟文).

We look to pop music for expression and solace as we indulge in its notes, rhythm, and beat. Now, it's time to listen to the lyrics.

关于

我们借助流行歌曲的旋律和节奏来寄寓内心的情愫或表达丰富的感情,那么歌词呢?这场搞笑演出以李宗盛、林夕、方文山、陈佳明等填词人的歌词,追溯“词”从古代到当代的演变,道出歌词如何为一首歌注入灵魂。
