Remembering Leslie...

1st April 2003 - 4 years had passed since the Canto Pop Singer Leslie Cheung (张国荣) ended his life in a tragic way (summore on April Fool Day). Although he was no longer around, his presence will remain in our hearts. I'm not really his fan but I do enjoy listening to his hit songs, such as 有誰共鳴,當年情,追, 共同渡過, 風繼續吹,全賴有你, 愛慕, Stand Up, 沉默是金, 红, 明星, Monica, 不羈的風,倩女幽魂, 无心睡眠, 黑色午夜, 风再起时, 由零开始, 第一次, 少女心事 etc..



(张国荣)

这一生也在进取 这分钟却挂念谁 我会说是唯独你不可失去
好风光似幻似虚 谁明人生乐趣 我会说为情为爱仍然是对

*谁比你重要 成功了败了 也完全无重要
谁比你重要 狂风与暴雨 都因你燃烧

一追再追 只想追赶生命里一分一秒
原来多么可笑 你是真正目标
一追再追 追踪一些生活最基本需要 原来早不缺少
ho......有了你 即使平凡却最重要
(只得你 会叫我仿佛人群里最重要)
( 有了你 即使沉睡了也在笑)

好光阴纵没太多 一分钟那又如何 会与你共同渡过 都不枉过
疯恋多错误更多 如能从新做过 我会说 愿能为你提前做错



有誰共鳴 (张国荣)

抬頭望星空一片靜 我獨行 夜雨漸停
無言是此刻的冷靜 笑問誰 肝膽照應
風急風也清 告知變幻是無定 未明是我苦笑卻未停 
不信命 只信雙手去苦拼 矛盾是無力去暫停 
可會知 我心裡困倦滿腔 夜闌靜 問有誰共鳴 

從前是天真不冷靜 愛自由 或會忘形 
明白是得失總有定 去或留 輕鬆對應 
孤單中顫抖 可知我實在難受 問誰願意失去了自由 
想退後 心裡知足我擁有 前去亦全力去尋求 
風也清 晚空中我問句星 夜闌靜 問有誰共鳴



共同渡過 (张国荣)

垂下眼睛熄了燈 回望這一段人生 
望見當天今天 即使多轉變 妳都也一意跟我共行
曾在我的失意天  疑問究竟為何生
但妳驅使我擔起灰暗 勇敢去面迎人生

若我可再活多一次都盼 再可以在路途重逢著妳
共去寫一生的句子
若我可再活多一次千次 我都盼面前仍是妳
我要他生都有今生的暖意

沒甚麼可給妳 但求憑這闕歌 謝謝妳風雨內都不退願陪著我
暂別今天的妳 但求憑我愛火 活在妳心內分開也像同渡過



当年情 (张国荣)

輕輕笑聲 在為我送溫暖 妳我注入快樂強電
輕輕說聲 漫長路快要走過 終於走到明媚晴天
(聲聲)歡呼躍起 像紅日發放金箭 我伴妳往日笑面重現
輕輕叫聲 共抬望眼看高空 終於青天優美為妳獻

擁著妳 當初溫馨再湧現 心裡邊 童年稚氣夢未污染
今日我 與妳又試肩並肩 當年情 此刻是添上了新鮮
一望妳 眼裡溫馨已通電 心裡邊 從前夢一點未改變
今日我 與妳又試肩並肩 當年情 再度獻上新鮮

I used to like his songs soo much.
Sigh. Him and ah mui jie ...

nyonyapenang said...

i prefer watching his movies.....his boyish charms....

may said...

I'm not really a Leslie fan either, but I do like a couple of his songs. what a pity he passed on. then again, young stars like him who die a tragic death live longer in our memories than those who die of old age, eh? sad but true...

lynnx01 said...

I remembered hearing the news over the radio. FOUR YEARS?? Eh, cepatnya masa berlalu.

Selba said...

Gosh... already 4 years ago? It feels like just 1 or 2 years ago...

Leslie's life is so tragic. Then I can't remember is it after or before Leslie, then Mei Yen Fang died of her cancer? A few weeks after they both died, [V] channel played the video clip where leslie and mei yen fang sang together in a concert. Can't remember the title of the song but it's a cantonese song.

Btw, yesterday on CCTV channel, there's a music program where they played those famous singers during their years and current year. It's a very nostalgic moment to see Andy Lau, Aaron Kwok, Leon Lai, Wu (don't remember his full name) singing in the late 80s/beginning 90s. So cuteeee...

The only one who hasn't changed at all is Aaron Kwok, he still looks so young, no wrinkle,... hmmm wondering what kind of vitamins or cream or does he got botox injection, hehehe

Chen said...

yenjai,
sad to say..
up to date, nobody can replace them..
they are like the king & queen of the stage.

nyonya,
Some of his movies that I like are such as - A Better Tomorrow (英雄本色), He's a Woman, She's a Man (金枝玉葉 I) and Who's the Man, Who's the Woman (金枝玉葉 II), All's Well, Ends Well Too (花田喜事).

may,
Come to think about it, there are quite a number of celebrities who passed away at young age. Not only that I have friends, coursemates, uni junior and ex-colleagues who passed away at young age too. Life is so fragile.... :(

Chen said...

lynnx,
Yeah, the tragedy occured in 2003. How time flies....
It seems like yesterday though.. :(

selba,
It seems like just happened not long ago, amazing how time flies...

Yeah, Anita Mui passed away in the same year, in late December 2003. Two of the hit cantonese songs that Leslie & Anita duet are 緣份 and 芳华绝代.

Aaron Kwok still looks young with no wrinkle? Hehehe, I didn't really follow the latest entertainment news on tv. Still prefer listening to old songs :P But I do know Andy Lau looks much older with wrinkles (or more mature?) compared to his early days ;)

april fool is supposed to be a merrymaking day. but to his fans all over the world, it's tragic --- brings back all the sad memories.

Woof Woof n Meow Meow said...

kat said...

Leslie's Better Tomorrow song is the bestest ever! The version by Andy Hui and William Soh is soooooo lame!!

My son was born 1 Apr 2004. Sometimes I wonder if Leslie got reincarnated as my son or not!! Must let him listen to some Leslie songs and see what happens!! :D

Chen said...

monkticon,
yeah.. time flies..
seems like we just celebrate 2007 not long ago, and now it's April liao..

Aiyak..
I miss out that song dim :P

misti,

Kekkeke..
very ngam liao..
wah.. hair can stand ah?
no need to use hair gel liao :P

singing 风再起时....

Chen said...

kyh,
The other songs are mostly old songs in the 80's, might be that's why u are unfamiliar with :)

IMHO april fool is a foolish day leh.. Making fun of people not my cuppa tea. I hate those who made emergency prank calls to hospital or police station on April Fool.
Those people are really brainless!!

woof2 & meow2,
He looks young for his age.

kat,
I dunno how's the version by Andy Hui and William Soh sounds like :)
Cos most of the time, I still listen to the old songs of yester-years :)

Your son born on april fool day ah? Mmmmmm... must let him listen to Leslie's song liao !!! kekkeke

slurp! said...

juz kidding la *giggle*

Chen said...

slurp,
imagine tsunami in spore..
all your fault !!! :P

明星 is another sad song :(

当你见到天上星星 可会想起我
可会记得当年我的脸
曾为你更比星星笑得多

当你记起当年往事 你又会会如何
可会轻轻凄然叹喟
怀念我在你心中照耀过

我像那银河星星 让你默默爱过
更让那柔柔光辉 为你解痛楚

当你见到光明星星 请你想想起我
当你见到星河灿烂
求你在心中记住我

Simple American said...

What a waste. I think my missus has some of his movies.

Chen said...

SA,
Come to think of it, I have some of his movies too...

_butt said...

Chen said...

I have been re-playing his song "Chase" (追) for quite some time liao...

Robin said...

Yes, every good thing will end.. just like a song, the singer and his life.

Leslie songs are always in my mind too..

Thanks for this post.

eastcoastlife said...

He was my idol!! sniff... sniff... so hamson, so young....

I love his songs. Still wish it was an April Fools' Day joke.

Chen said...

robin,
Yeah, we have to appreciate what we have now cos we will never know what might happen the next minute :)
This is life...

eastcoastlife,
Yeah, 4 years ago, many of us thought that was a cruel prank on April Fool Day, which sadly turn out to be true... aiyhh.... :(
