I still LOVE you, Leehom

I feel bad everytime I couldn't make time to browse or feed myself with Leehom's news. I feel like I was betraying him..

I still love you, Leehom.
And that's not gonna change until... forever.

OPEN FIRE - My Preorder CD is here!!

Support Leehom, buy original work only. 

It was like perfectly planned that my portable HDD was left in the office since last Friday. I who was supposed to work from home on Monday, had to go to office to get it. It has all the office data and emails.

After lunch time, the brown box package was sent to my desk. I knew it. I knew it right from that very second that it's Leehom's CD. Even though I had all the songs already, I still felt so excited when I opened that box.

It's a huge package for a normal CD. It's like 40 x 40 x 10 cm box. I was told that the preoder will come with a huge poster, so I was expecting it. I have no idea where to put the poster though, maybe in my son's room as he's a fan too.

I didn't find any huge poster, but got something else, more interesting stuffs. A nice photo book of his HLQK MV shoot. A girl came to my desk seeing me giggle and she asked who is Leehom. So I went bla bla bla bla bla..... and just like any other person who was introduced to Leehom's profile, she went "WOW! very talented". I swear to you, I didn't exaggerate, use flowery words or something, his profile is just beyond average. And about the photo book, lots of nice pictures but honestly, either Leehom is becoming very thin or he did something with his face. It looked like a really long face.

Then, there's another plastic packed separately. At first, I thought it's the poster but when I opened it... OMG!! It's a balloon, a replica of Bahamut. And soon, some of the guys around my desk came and asked if  I would give it to them. Heu? Yeaa.... hello guys, over my dead body, ok? LOL!!

I waited till I got home to blow it. And it was so cute that my son asked me to take his picture with it.

Still Love You - 2 Min Version

What can we get from a 2 minute show? Pretty much a lot, I think. The length of the song is 04:28, so this 02:01 almost tells all.

It's a nice MV, however I can't say that it's the best of Wong Fu productions. I was really curious when I read the overwhelmed reaction from everybody everywhere right the moment it was confirmed that Wong Fu will work with Leehom for the MV. I didn't know who is Wong Fu. So I began to surf.

I started from their youtube channel and found out that these 3 guys are extremely refreshing and talented.

So, I was putting my expectation up up above the clouds ... Well, the idea of using that frame was unique and fresh, Leehom nailed some of the scenes with his smiles, as usual. But something was missing. I didn't find my self "WOW" like when I saw the Open Fire MV. To me, it looks like another "Forever Love", "Kiss Goodbye" or "Everything". His "Falling Leaf Returns to Root" and "Heartbeat" are better.

I dont think Wong Fu top their David Choy's MV.
It's one of the sweetest MV I have ever seen. Brilliant!

Tell me what you think?

15. Dream Again
16. Remix

And I am just an "Insanely Crazy Fan", because I only guessed 16 of the songs correctly. See my song list, here.

I'm not happy with the title... I could be an "Insanely Super Crazy Fan" or I think I can be a "Insanely Super Die Die Crazy Fan", if only I took the song list from 1998 album. I thought, since he already had "EVOLUTION Album" that had songs from "Revolution (1998)", "Wei Yi (2000)"

But anyway.. some songs really surprised me.

  • Astrology and As Time Goes By are the 2 most shocking songs. I was really clueless that those 2 songs are included. 
  • I actually had some feeling that Selina duet and Jane Zhang duet will be included. And they were, so my guess could have been correct that it's for a business reason.
  • I Can't Stop Loving You and Dream Again. Friend told me that those will be the Japanese version and I think so too, because Leehom put the English title of the songs. Can I wish that the Dream Again to be in English?
  • Who are You Thinking of at this Moment. I loveeeeeeee this song so very very much. And I am extremely happy that Leehom included it. This is a gorgeous song with a gorgeous guitar play. I wonder why he never sang it alive. The song totally deserves more recognition.
If I had guessed it from "Revolution" and "Wei Yi".. I would have added 5 correct guesses and that would make me an "Insanely Super Crazy Fan"

Leehom DID NOT Plagiarize !!!

Poor Leehom...
But I'm glad that he has wrote back thru his weibo and so grateful that wackychasew has translated it into English. Look at the time he uploaded the post, this poor guy must have stayed awake all night ...

Please read the English translation of Leehom's long writing about his new song "Open Fire" that has been accused as plagiarized other western' song. Original writing is here

Jia You, Leehom !!
I know you will never give up.
I believe in you.
I believe in your music and your talent.
And... I will support you forever.

*little note
This is the real voice of Leehom that I love the most.


Proudly Present Leehom's New MV "OPEN FIRE"

It's growing on me... finally.
I love the video and I love the beat of the song.
One issue, Leehom's voice sounds strange..
I love best when he used his thick voice like in "Noah"

But, it's not Leehom if he's not eclectic
it's not Leehom if he's not trying something new
and I'm proud of what he has accomplished
although I personally think he still doesn't get enough credit.
He so deserves more....

So that's my list. What's yours like?

New Album 2011, New Song

A true die die hard fan like me must have been expecting something not only extra-ordinary, but also extra-nice new songs coming from each of Leehom's new album. He's not like releasing album twice a year, - that would awesome, I'm not against it.. But he's not releasing it once a year either. So, I was always hoping that his album is something worth waiting for.

Define that worth waiting for.

Okay, that would be revealing the whole me worshiping his ballads, that's my first criteria. Then, it will have to come out with at least 20 new songs, haha! Third would be MV for each of the song, and ... last but not least, there are cute merchandises attached when we buy it.

I was a bit slow this year on the whole Leehom's things. I didn't update my blog, I didn't browse, I didn't even know that he is releasing new album this year. I'm still a die die hard fan, don't try to argue on that.

 Here are few information on the new album:

Title: Struck the First Blow 

I have to admit. After listening to it more than 5x... it still didnt grow on me yet, except on that " ai.. ai... part".  Some fans said it sounds like MJ's song.. no idea, really. I'm a bit lost with the new song.. so the next one better be ballad. Otherwise ........ nothing. I will still buy the album. hehe.

oh..*this line was added after 8x listening and after 10min the post was uploaded* I think the MJ part is coming from that "ah and ugh" .... the very famous signature of MJ. 

Hmm... I love to make a list of what are the 28 songs he's gonna put into the album and score myself with:
  • Insanely Super Die Die Crazy Fan,  if my list has 25 - 28 songs that are correctly matched 
  • Insanely Super Crazy Fan, if it is 20 - 24 songs are correct
  • Insanely Crazy Fan, if it is 15 - 19 songs are correct
  • Just an Ordinary Crazy Fan, if it is only 10 - 14 songs are correct
  • Super Duper Oneng Crazy Fan, if it is less than 10 songs are correct *
I'll share my list on another post.  

* those who don't understand bahasa, "oneng" means "very dumb"

HUGS.... Part One

Yeaaa.... I agree. Leehom is sooooo hugable.

Shave Leehom, Save Me

I can't believe just how long I have not updated this blog. I read a comment from somebody who randomly found my blog, she said she loves it and asked me to keep on posting ... *ahem*  I need to keep the spirit of writing alive.  Well, of course I will.... I promise.. I guess :). haha!

So, I heard and read that Leehom was hanging out with friends, attending friend's wedding, doing a few performance, receiving awards (again n again) shooting some ads, and updating his Weibo and his Facebook.

Comparing to his previous work schedules when he was doing album and movie promotion, those are like .. really just a few. I am very sure, Leehom had a lot of free time for himself.

actually ...
has he not??
was he too busy to shave??

Leehom and Awards

I was so happy when I finally had time to check on Leehom and read that he had 3 prestigious awards. He's the man!! He is my man!! YAAAY!!!!!

Recently in China Music Award 2011, Leehom won:

1. Best Male Artist, HK & Taiwan
2. Best Album Producer, HK & Taiwan
3. Best Composer "你不知道的事 Ni Bu Zhi Dao De Shi"
