I don’t know what it is about these songs that makes me feel so heartbroken every time I listen to them. Even now, after hearing them gazillion times, I still get all chocked up. You know, the tingling tightness in your chest that is not caused by a heart burn.
Number one on my list is Terry Lin’s interpretation of “Fade Away” (林志炫 – 煙花易冷). Jay Chou may have wrote the song, but it takes a talent like Terry to give it life! Music starts at 0:18.
♪Some one told me you remained single.♪
If you want a woman’s perspective, look no farther than Liu Tao’s “Faded Beauty” (刘涛 – 红颜旧)
♪We endured the time we were apart. Now, we must endure another separation.♪
Aska Yang’s “I Want To Tell You” (楊宗緯 – 想對你說) is also high up on my list. The sniffling factor gets an extra boost from being associated with drama “A Good Wife.”
♪Hate may seem impenetrable, but if you are willing to have me, we can get over it together.♪
Jason Wang’s “I Want You To Be Happy” (王識賢 – 希望妳開心) is another song on a man seeing the woman he loves in emotional pain. This time, he is the reason why.
♪Loving you is to see you happy. It is never to isolate you.♪
Things get really heartbreaking with Biung Wang’s “You Say You are Not Happy” (王宏恩 – 你說你不快樂). Apparently, love does not conquer all.
♪You say you are not happy. You say you don’t want to give up. But in the end, we still let go of happiness.♪
