Saturday night saw me and Peiyi going for 优客李林's concert, yes, it's 优客李林, meaning there's 林志炫 and 李骥 they were back together for another concert. We didn't buy that good tickets, but the view was quite okay, we couldn't really see big faces, but there was the big screen, so it's okay, we could see the whole view of the stage though.
First things first, I must say this before I can continue saying anything else: 林志炫's voice is so so so beautiful! His singing is absolutely perfect, he can turn between the normal voice and the false voice so well, and it adds so much emotion to the songs he sang. Not just that, he can control his voice very well, and hit the high notes, and his breath is very long, he can pull the last notes so well, that I can just fall over and swoon all over him. And it's not just his singing, his voice when he talks is so swoon-worthy. It's like so gentle and cute. ahhh... I'm in love man~
Okay, enough of my bimbotic antics, 林志炫 and 李骥 are like so damn skinny. At first I just thought it was only 林志炫 who is skinny, but after 李骥 changed into this flimsy top, I can just see the skinny frame of his. I think they both look better wearing thick jackets and hiding their skinny frame. But 林志炫 is still damn shuai anyway. hehe...
Tobe very honest, I don't know many of their songs, only the famous ones, and some other 林志炫 sans 李骥 period of 林志炫's songs because I primarily am more familiar with 林志炫. So I was a bit apprehensive of sitting through a concert not knowing half the songs, but in the end it didn't matter, I love every song that came out of 林志炫's perfect crystal clear voice. And there were lyrics being screened at the big screen to help us sing along. I thought that was quite lame and distracting though, but it turned out to be very useful because 林志炫 and 李骥 made the audience sing along with them, but the songs which they asked the audience to sing along were also songs which I am familiar with, so it was quite okay.
Basically, they both managed to sing all the songs which I like, especially 林志炫 because I like him. hehe... The only gripe is the samba version of 蒙娜丽莎的眼泪, I prefer the original version one. But it's okay, since he sang my very very favourite song 散了吧. 林志炫 said that he usually sings this song as his last song, but he couldn't sing this as his last song that day because he still wants to continue singing more songs with 李骥. He's so cute.
He was actually sniffling before he sang this song because the previous song he sang was too emotional. wow~ He can actually get touched by his own songs. I was actually apprehensive that he can't sing well because of his sniffling, but I thought that the resultant voice was only better because of all the emotions he had in him. Oh man, after listening to the song live, the CD version sounds so normal... I think this is what separates a good singer from a normal singer. A good singer sounds better live but a normal singer sounds better on the CD.
Another song I really like a lot.
This song was the funny one. They were talking about them coming to Singapore as guest singers for another singer some long long time ago, and I was guessed this song correctly, but as they started singing it, my heart sank. 两个大男人唱什么出嫁嘛? It was just so weird... Really, even though this is one of my favourite songs, I cannot bear to hear two guys singing it, it was just so weird.
And it was so funny because everytime 李骥 sang that 牵你的手 part, he'd stick out his hand to want to shake 林志炫's hands, but 林志炫 don't want. hahaha~ This was also the song they made all of us to sing along. Fun for a concert~ In a way, this was the first time I sat through the whole of this song without shuddering. Not say 张清芳 is bad, but her voice is just too high pitched for me to hear without shuddering out of natural reaction.
This was one of the last few songs they sang, and another song which I really like.
In all, the concert was well worthed the price. And godknows when else they can come together and sing again, so it's lagi worhwhile. And surprisingly, the concert was a sellout and there were like so many people there. I thought no one would go to such a concert, but surprisingly, I'm wrong. But ya, the age group of the concert-goers was a bit on the high side. And another surprising thing was the high proportion of male attendees, I thought only females would fall all over 优客李林, but apparently, they have many males fans too, or maybe those males were dragged to come along.
