I believe lots of cinema viewers whom grew up in Hong Kong, Taiwan and Singapore will remember the era where Stephen Chow's films is a staple during the Chinese New Year. That was during 1991 to 1997. From the stage of his films that does not requires much thinking to A Chinese Odyssey Part I and II, we witnessed the desire for an entertainer to improve himself. Hence, we see the more serious stuff like CJ7, which was not as popular as his Kungfu Hustle. Nevertheless, A Chinese Odyssey is considered Stephen Chow best films. His later films could not surpassed it. Below is the theme song A Lifeline Love for the film. It was sung by the talented Lowell Lo.
As this year Valentine's Day is in the Lunar New Year period, what main theme from Hong Kong film can fit into the occasion? The answer is "Drenched" sung by Qu Wanting. The hit song from the popular film Love In The Butt, it sums up the love-hate relationship between the two well-loved characters, Jimmy and Cherie. I do not waste any space here. Henceforth, please enjoy this great song. Oh man, how I wish I can set up a radio station and play the hits.
From Disappearing Hong Kong, I wish all a Happy Lunar New Year! What is more adapt than to listen to Sam Hui singing God of Fortune during this period. In the 1970s, Hong Kong's economic boom resulting the society obessed with wealth. Will be featuring movies and/or songs representing Hong Kong's classical period from the 1970s to 1997 for the next 15 days. Enjoy.
