Amy’s Top Songs of 2018
2. Tan Weiwei (谭维维) & Liang Bo (梁博) – Shadow (影)
I’m low-key disappointed Youku blocked the only HD upload of the music video because Zhang Yimou’s images go so well with the song, it’s not even funny. I’m usually not a fan of movie montages to depict OSTs, but shh is pretty.
Tan Weiwei is like three for three with her zhongguo feng songs. I hope she continues to explore Chinese culture and gets to do more songs like these.
1. Faye Wong (王菲) & Na Ying (那英) – Years (岁月)
Evergreen voices, everlasting Chinese beauties. So much melancholy, sadness, desire, hope in one simple song, performed on a simple stage with no other thing than two legendary women doing a memorable number. I had missed seeing Faye Wong on the top of my list, so I’m glad to have her back with Na Ying.
So, that’s it. 60 -and some- songs this year. Massive. My favorite songs replayed all year long, specially #1 being released on the new year, and replayed ever since. Truly song of the year material.
All throughout 2018, what have you been listening to?
