Hong Kong Pop/Unofficial Anthem 3-Jenny Tseng's Fen Dou (1978/ 甄妮-1978年奋斗)


Today's recommendation comes from a late 1970s song. 

Macau born, Taipei raised Jenny Tseng released her first Cantonese album in 1978. One of the song titled Fen Dou aka Strive talked about how two people strived for their future. Later on, it was known as Hong Kong's unofficial anthem as the lyrics talked about local born and raised Hong Kongers slogged and toiled to make the Pearl of the Orient (not referring to The Philippines) a better place. 

I tried to search for the music video for this song but alas, there is none. If you can understand Cantonese, you will find the lyrics meaningful. 


無論歷盡幾次浪
無論受盡多少風霜
無論再要奮鬥幾次
才共你到得彼岸

為你實現萬千美夢
令你樣樣事心願能償
寧願奮鬥到百千次
創出幸福快樂鄉

*同我兩手相牽 發千分熱千分光
燃亮著我的愛 為你照前方
同你披荊斬棘 為你衝破前途路障
獻出千般愛心與痴情
一切都奉上
