Your favorite Teresa Teng songs

memories...memories...which lead me to another one of my favourite Teresa songs: 不了情


That's another great song. Her Mandarin pronunciation is flawless. Few people today in Taiwan can speak Mandarin like that without an audible accent.

Her impeccable pronunciation and clear annunciation are some of the greatest attributes of her songs. They really make her voice quite distinct and instantly recognizable. It is also why she's so popular on the Mainland despite her oft-stated (though mild) anti-communist rhetoric. As the saying used to go: 「白天聽大鄧,晚上聽小鄧」( “Báitiān tīng Dà Dèng, wǎnshang tīng Xiǎo Dèng”).

I came across this video of Teng singing the Japanese version of 我只在乎你. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p3Mi4Ma1eDA

She had just won the Grand Prize in Japan for the third consecutive year. The tears you see on her face while she sings are tears of joy.

The composer of Teresa's 我只在乎你 (Wǒ zhǐ zàihu nǐ) died today: Miki Takashi, Teresa's songwriter from the 1980s passes away

曾為已故名歌星鄧麗君製作「愛人」、「我只在乎你」等多首曲子的日本作曲家三木剛今天上午病逝,享年64歲。

鄧麗君唱紅的「償還」、「愛人」、「我只在乎你」等膾炙人口的歌曲都是本名渡邊匡的三木作曲,他對日本戰後的歌謠史具有卓越的貢獻。

三木於三年前罹患下咽頭癌動了一場手術,之後一直在療養。今天上午,他病逝位於岡山縣岡山市的醫院。

80年代,鄧麗君唱紅的歌曲,幾乎都是他與日本名作詞家荒木豐久聯手創作的,包括「償還」、「愛人」、「我只在乎你」、「別離的預感」、「悲傷的自由」等。

「我只在乎你」一曲還讓鄧麗君獲得日本唱片大賞;三木的多首曲子讓鄧麗君在日本建立了歌唱的黃金期。

5月8日是鄧麗君逝世14週年紀念日,「日本電視台」(NTV)還特別播放這些歌曲紀念她。

Teresa Teng , as famous in the Chinese world as Elvis is in the USA. Truly a legend. She died way too young as did Elvis.

Heres a girl whos singing iv admired for awhile. Shes all grown up and more beautiful now. Shes been said to be little Teresa Teng. Here is Tsai Shinchuan (sp) singing some of Teresa's songs.

Talking about her and Elvis, this is what someone wrote on one of her songs

"Elvis Presley was born in 1935: 1+9+3+5=18
Teresa Teng, was born in 1953: 1+9+5+3=18

They were born approximately 18 years apart.
They died approximately 18 years apart.
They were both 42 years old.

Elvis & Teresa were born in January
Elvis on the 8th; Teresa on the 29th

Elvis Presley died in 1977: 1+9+7+7=24
Teresa Teng died in 1995: 1+9+9+5=24
"
freaky?
