For this video, I would like to make a little difference by creating a video of music for you on the occasion of Chinese New Year 2019. Music and Travel are both my passions. I am partly a Chinese descendant as my great grandparents (my mom’s side) is from Fujian in China. Or we can call ourselves “Hokkian”. My great grandparents have settled down in RANONG, a charming small town in Southern Thailand.
As a music person, I have many favourite songs. One of those is this song from “Shanghai Bund’ The Series and I am determined to sing this song as a gift for all of you as the lyrics conveys a good message of Chinese wisdom. Hope you enjoy the song.
“Shanghai Bund” is a Hong Kong period drama television series first broadcast on TVB in 1980. It is praised as “The Godfather of the East” and spawned two sequels, two remakes, and a film adaptation. The theme song, which shares the same Chinese title as the series and was performed by Frances Yip, also became a memorable Cantopop hit.
The theme song Seung Hoi Tan (上海灘) is a well-known Cantopop song. The song was originally performed in Cantonese by Frances Yip. It was one of the early collaborations composed by Joseph Koo with the lyrics by Wong Jim. The song would also become one of the top 10 songs awarded in the 1980 RTHK Gold songs awards.
The 1996 film Shanghai Grand released some 16 years later also re-used the same song. This version was performed by Andy Lau.
