Jay Chow is famous for a singing style that falls halfway between mumbling and muttering. Unlike many performers, he's also distinguished by writing his own vocals and music. And he's an excellent musician as well. This is the second song of his we've showcased, and while the lyrics in our previous song
were actually fairly well enunciated, in this one Jay's full vocal talents are on display. We suspect you'll need the annotated lyrics to figure it out.
And we quite like this song too. All of us except for Gail, who finds it somewhat strange. "What's up with Taiwanese singers," she suddenly asked while preparing this lesson for publication. "I mean... why do they use such strange metaphors? Is it supposed to be romantic to tell someone their cheeks are like tomatoes?" Some people overanalyze music. You be the judge.
