I Smile When I See You

Last December Leehom was invited by the city of Taipei to be their goodwill ambassador at the 2010 Shanghai World Expo. He presented the audience with a rap version of the classic song “I Smile when I See You” by the late Teresa Teng (鄧麗君).

As the goodwill ambassador, Leehom volunteered to produce the theme song “I Smile When I See You”. He also participated in the promotional film, in which it combined video with lyrics to show Taipei’s famous features such as beef noodle, fireworks at the Taipei 101, the night market, Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall, and more. Leehom also tasted grilled squid and sausage in the clip for added Taiwanese flavor.

Leehom revealed that the most difficult part of remaking “I Smile When I See You” was extracting Teresa Teng’s original track. He used new technologies to extract her voice from vinyl records, as there was no master tape available. After mixing was completed, the new track is twice as fast as the original, giving it a completely different feel.
