What is the hottest hitz in the Chinese pop industry now? No doubt, it’s Jay!! Almost every where, every streets, every corner…you can listen Jay’s new songs broadcasting in the air!
Jay is too popular and his new album has been leaked right before the schedule official released which was on the 14th October. I love Jay’s music, so I have been anticipating this new release for quite some time when I first heard his new leading song – Dao Xiang 稻香 or Rice Aroma.

Do you still remember sometime around last year, I posted about a cool Chinese zither player playing a very soothing music called Breathing? I finally got the full album and would love to share it with all of you here with the same interest!
Here’s a little information on the performer. Chang Jing 常静 is borned in China ChengDu SiChuan province. She started playing zither as early as 8. She went to music school and involved in several music association now. “Open Music” or Li Xian 离弦 is one of her album back in 2005.
I wonder why I didn’t include this in my own blog! Last year when Jay Chou released his new album with the song Qian Li Zhi Wai (千里之外, meaning: far away), me and Cherry made this music video using a game interface, which is Ragnarok Online (RO). Back that time, I hosted an RO private server, so we could easily get whatever we wanted and also easily moved around in the game. Anyway, here is the vid, just in case you never watched before.

This is not a very new song, but it’s a very beautiful song which I love very much. It’s a love song. It makes me think about my love. The music is nice and the lyrics is beautiful too. The music gives me a feeling of Inka Marka, maybe because the music arrangement is almost similar, or maybe the musical instruments used are sort of similar too. Watch and enjoy the MV from YouTube below:
Besides Enya, Loreena McKennitt is my favorite new age artist. Her music is very “celtic”, but you can still easily distinguish her music from Enya’s.
Loreena McKennitt, C.M. (born February 17, 1957) is a Canadian singer, composer, harpist and pianist most famous for writing, recording and performing world music with a New-Age/Celtic feel.
I love her album titled The Book of Secrets. I enjoy all the songs in this album. However, there are 2 songs that I like the most. They are The Mummers’ Dance and La Serenissima. If you like new age, you shouldn’t miss this one out!
Pirates of the Caribbean series movie is one of the top box office movies. Nonetheless, a good movie can only be perfect with nice composition of the background music or known as soundtracks. Normally when watching a movie, I kind of listen carefully to the soundtracks, the musical instruments used. POTC original soundtracks are composed by Hans Zimmer. Really amazed by how Zimmer composed the music to make it just sound so right. These few days, I’ve been listening to 2 original soundtracks from POTC 3: At World’s End. I like the “Singapore” theme the most! I suddenly thought that it would be nice if to watch an orchestra performing POTC theme. So here you go, found some wonderful vids from YouTube that I’d like to share.
An interview sort-of type about the making of POTC OST with Hans Zimmer:
