100 Songs of Chinese Music
9. Mama Get Me a Guitar (媽媽送我一個吉他) – Mimi and the 5 Petals (蔡咪咪和五花瓣合唱團)
And we continue the 60s with this Taiwanese band, who scored their biggest hit with this song (also recorded by Teresa Teng), the main title of their 1968 album of the same name.
10. The Forgotten Times (被遺忘的時光) – Chin Tsai (蔡琴)
Taiwanese singer Chin Tsai’s 1979 debut album Farewell My Country (出塞曲) contained this vocally rich song.
11. Olive Tree (橄欖樹) – Chyi Yu (齊豫)
12. Tian Mi Mi (甜蜜蜜) – Teresa Teng (鄧麗君)
I know Teresa Teng (the Queen of Chinese immigrants around the globe) has many other more popular songs, so popular even Bon Jovi did a cover of, but Tian Mi Mi is so precious, it’s my pick for this list. If I were ranking this songs, this and Mo Li Hua would definitely rank at the top.
