Written by Frank M. Lin June 7th, 2019 @ Taipei, Taiwan – I haven’t followed Taiwan Music for many years. Every once in a few years I randomly browse YouTube for music. I have never heard of Eve Ai until today.
In the last 2 months or so I’ve been jamming to a song she wrote for another singer which is this one:
Eve Ai wrote the melody. This is the best duet song out of Taiwan in many years in my opinion. Super catchy and rivals any western produced pop songs. I had some times to kill today and was browsing about Eve Ai – 艾怡良… Wikipedia says this about her:
|Born||24 March 1987|
|Alma mater||National Taiwan University of Arts|
|Agent||Tian Di He Entertainment|
Although she is critically acclaimed and is supremely talented she has yet to found huge commercial success which is such a shame. But I bet she has a steady group of hardcore fans…
This song Forever Young is off her latest album release in 2018. She wrote the song as well as the lyrics. Her music style is fairly unique. Takes couple of listening to get into this song but WOW. Check out the lyrics and the unusual melody. This is a song that I don’t mind putting on repeat.
活得 高亢 低落 高亢 低落
不願 得過 且過 可無 可有
我多驕傲 這是我的骨架 我的內臟
對嗎? 你深愛著那樣的我 對嗎
為 愛情 合掌 因為 妳會
我 不知 不覺 不知 不覺
畫我的模樣 成你的模樣 oh
擁有一切 都還渴望 還尋著
I like this song. Very little play so far, sub 500k times. The song has lots of feelings. ^_^
Interesting song with a western feel.
2014 song. Chinese version cover of Jessica Mauboy (Australia)’s same titled song Never Be The Same. The Chinese lyrics is expertly written, very meaningful and works well, I really like it. Too bad neither version gets much play. Also check out Jessica’s original version.
Damn this is good stuff!!
