Raining

Inspired by the rain outside, I browsed through some of my songs and pulled out a couple of songs I really like that all of one thing in common. 雨. I don't know why but everytime it rains, my heart aches, sometimes my joints ache too, but that's because of rheumatism, which is another problem by itself. To me, rain is like heaven crying, the tears of heaven fall upon the vast earth. nice~

冰雨
刘德华

曲:潘协庆
词:刘德华,李密

我是在等待一个女孩
还是在等待沉沦苦海
一段情默默灌溉
没有人去管花谢花开
无法肯定的爱左右摇摆
只好把心酸往深心里塞

我是在等待你的回来(嗯)
难道只换回一句活该
一个人静静发呆
两个人却有不同无奈
好好的一份爱啊怎么会慢慢变坏

冷冷的冰雨在脸上胡乱的拍
暖暖的眼泪跟寒雨混成一块
眼前的色彩忽然被掩盖
你的影子无情在身边徘徊

你就像一个刽子手把我出卖
我的心彷佛被剌刀狠狠地宰
悬崖上的爱谁会愿意接受最痛的意外
悬崖上的爱谁会敢去采
还是愿意接受最痛的意外
最爱的女孩

This was once a very popular song, and one of y long time favourite Andy Lau song. I always try to sing it whenever I go KTV because it's so sad, yet it's fun to sing, as with all Andy Lau songs, nice to imitate, nice to sing.

雨衣
黄品源

词,曲:黄品源

细雨的夜里
想起曾一起躲雨
抱着你
世界最美丽
寄放在你心里的我的回忆
是否你也曾想起
若有绿
或许还会见到你
舍不得我们就这样分离
不得已的决定
怎么可能忘记你
雨衣里两颗心是否定了情
还是你不在意
我好抱你在怀里
说我早就爱上你
是否你也不能适应
现在的距离
孤单的望着雨
想着你还留着甜蜜
寄放在你心里的我的回忆
是否你也曾想起
若有缘
一定还会见到你
舍不得我们就这样分离
不得已的决定
怎么可能忘记你
雨衣里两颗心是否定了情
还是你不在意
我好抱你在怀里
说我早就爱上你
是否我们就这样分离
不得已的决定
后悔我没留住你
雨衣里两颗心是否定了情
还是你不在意
我好抱你在怀里
说我早就爱上你
是否你也想起那天的雨衣
藏着最深的情意
我爱你
好好保重自己

This song won a Golden Horse award for best theme song of a movie. It's not too often that Huang Pinyuan himself writes songs, either lyrics or composition, but when he does it, he does it well. One of the classics Huang Pinyuan love songs. My favourite song in that stupid Xiaowei album, sorry to say, Xiaowei not being his composition, and after it got overheated by the masses, I've started to hate it. Must watch the MTV for this song because it's mostly scenes from the movie, very sad, very nice.

我怀念有一年的夏天
一场大雨把你留在我身边
我看着你那被淋湿的脸
还有一片树叶贴在头发上面

那时我们被困在路边
世界不过是一个小小屋檐
你说如果雨一直下到明天
我们就厮守到永远

rain...
falling in my heart
你的声音仍然深印我心田
世界改变你也改变
我在海角天边

rain...
falling in my heart
你的诺言虽然没有实现
爱是雨点落在昨天
永不放晴的缠绵

我怀念有一年的夏天
一场大雨把你留在我身边
我看着你那被淋湿的脸
还有一片树叶贴在头发上面

那时我们被困在路边
世界不过是一个小小屋檐
你说如果雨一直下到明天
我们就厮守到永远

rain...
falling in my heart
你的声音仍然深印我心田
世界改变你也改变
我在海角天边

rain...
falling in my heart
你的诺言虽然没有实现
爱是雨点落在昨天
永不放晴的缠绵

rain...
falling in my heart
rain...
falling in my heart
rain...
falling in my heart
rain...
falling in my heart

rain...

People from my generation would have recognised that this was (not sure if it still it bust it was the very first) 音乐日记 opening song. A song made popular by Lin Lingzhi, too bad she's now left (or is it leaving) the station. A very sad song, because if you notice that line "你的诺言虽然没有实现" which effectively means that they weren't together forever. Oh well...

紫雨
齐秦

词,曲:董荣骏

无尽的天
带来一片不协调的感觉
多变的云
阻挡了一切黑暗
现实的脸
怎么多了一份无谓的空白
太多的规则
却让我无法释怀
曾经在多少的岁月
等待更多的伤害
回首只是看见
太多的未来
别让我沉醉梦幻 baby
pupple rain,please tell me why
无聊的色彩有谁能更改
pupple rain,please don't cry
乌云的背后仍旧是无奈
狂傲的风难道也算错
悲凄的雨也会有它的梦

This was a very very old SBC (Singapore Broadcasting Corporation, which became TCS which became Mediacorp) ending song. I can't remember what the show was about, only that I watched it, and when the show came on repeat, I'd switch on the TV at the end of the show just to hear the song even though I've now downloaded the mp3. It's a very sad song, but yet very nice to sing. I used to like Chyi Chin. That day I was talking to a friend who said that she like the name "Purple Rain", I brought up this song, drew a blank, I brought up an old Hong Kong blockbuster 紫雨风暴, and drew another blank. I think I'm with the wrong generation of friends.

暴雨
伍佰

词,曲:伍佰

到底你还要下多久
从昨天深夜下到午后
像是快溺毙的野兽
狂暴的撞击整个四周
满腔的怨恨一直狂流
倾泻在不见天日的大洞
你终究明明白白的显露出
隐藏在背后的那个恶魔
雨水它淹没所能看的一切
包括那心中坚强自我
大雨它冲走所有的美梦
想像的幸福全部被掏空
大雨它粉碎对你的感动
漫长的爱意是那么脆弱
我在这里无话可说
震耳欲聋的你的怒吼
熄灭蜡烛就像冷掉的心
是不是你就要我走
我想我会走
你要我走
我想我会走
大雨大雨大雨大雨一直下......

That song rang throughout my head when I was taking my A Levels, I don't know why. It wasn't really my favourite song when I first bought the album, but after it ringing throughout my head during my entire A Levels, I grew to fall in love with the song. Now whenever I hear this song, sing this song, or think of this song, I think about my A Levels, quite sad sia... lol~

大雨
娃娃

说真的我不是故意
看见你和她在街头伫立
我在犹豫该不该逃避
还是让你看见我在这里
天空间飘来的雨
滴滴洒落在我心里
我在怀疑该不该躲你
该不该躲这场雨
大雨就要开始不停的下
我的心我的心已经完全的没有主张
带我到没有爱情的地方哦
大雨就要开始不停的下
我的心我的心已经完全的失去方向
带我到没有爱情的地方

I don't own the mp3 of this song, but this is always the first song that rings in my head whenever it rains very heavily. Of course, the song I sing is a mangled version. I think I so like this song, or at least the reason why this song sticks to much in my head after so many years is because I really feel the way the lyrics are written.

Another song, I'd think of first whenever I see rain, okay not a song but a verse from a song, would be these lines:
雨下得闹烘烘
雪飘的兴冲冲
心不痛血不红
谁会懂一切不是梦
And the funny thing is that whenever I attempt to sing those lines, I'd do it in a mangled Cantonese accented Chinese. lol~ Yea... It's an Ekin Cheng song, maybe around the Noodle era, or maybe just slightly after. It's the theme song of the movie of the same name.

PS: All lyrics can be found from Baidu's mp3 pages, if you want you might be able to find downloads there too, but well, whatever you do, it's your business ah... Okay, I've added in some of the names of the lyricists and composers myself. I own the CDs of Huang Pinyuan, Chyi Chin and Wubai, so I can't be considered as a pirate, okie... wahaha~
