Ever wondered who was responsible for 对面的女孩, 浪花一朵朵 and pretty much every other song in Richie Jen's repertoire? Or wondered where the theoretical limits on infectiousness in Chinese music lie? We are pleased to answer all of these critical questions with our selection for KTV Wednesday this week: Peace Blossoms by A Niu.
A Niu is the pen name of Chen Qingxiang, a Malaysian Chinese who got his start writing songs for others before eventually taking the stage himself. He is considered irresistibly cute by some of us in the office, and irresistibly dorky by others.And as for his music? We can confidently say that careful study will pay handsome dividends in KTV sessions for years on end. While the singers might - and regularly do - change, these songs are going to stay around for a long time.
