Faye Wong, 王菲

Faye Wong is one of the most distinguished popular female singer in Chinese musical circles. I started to know her from the covered song "Fragile Woman (容易受伤的女人)" in year 1992. That time she started to get popular by this song. Many of my relatives also like her, so I got influenced. I like to listen to her old songs with normal vocal singing technique. All of her fans can discover something fresh when she release any of her new albums.

She released "Scenic Tour (唱遊)" album in October 1998 and I bought a cassette for this. I still can remember that my sister's marriage date was fall on that period. My cousin sister wanted to attend her wedding dinner, met accident on the way back from Kuala Lumpur to Kuantan and finally she passed away. This had become the pain in our heart. The last chance I met her was at her house. That night, she asked me about the status of my Lower 6 studies. I told her that I didn’t know the purpose of continuing my studies. She scolded at me loudly with anger. I was scared because never experience it. Now I know the reason for her to scold me in such a severe manner.She used to teach me, give tuition and advices to me to lead me to the road of success. I should thank her for all her givings but I don't have the chance anymore. Although I can't see or feel her in real life, she does live in my heart.

Back to the topic of this post, in my view, I like "Scenic Tour" the most and had chosen it as her greatest album for my own. Music video, songs, lyrics, images and artist make-up had made this album perfect for me. My friend gave me her giant poster and I pasted it on the wall in my room at hometown.
