Help with singer/song please

Postby taotoo » 29 Apr 2012, 15:50

Would anybody happen to know what the name of the singer and song is for the following:

Track 4 on Eva Air's Mandarin Beat compilation. Apparently it's something to do with 'freedom' and 'can fly'. It's a girl singer.

Thanks!

Thanks for the quick reply, but unfortunately not.

I imagine it's from 2011/12 in case that narrows it down a bit.

Edit: I am presuming she's from Taiwan and not China since it was on Eva.

Eva doesn't publish their playlists online, unfortunately. A bit more detail could help though.

Thanks very much for the reply, but no I'm afraid.

The song has a long title when written in what I assume is Mandarin.

The first song on the cd (by a different artist presumably) is by A-Lin.

Also there is a lot of s-ey words like 'shee' 'shing' and 'shang' in the chorus.

The girl's voice is slightly child-like.

The song starts with a piano I think. The verses are quiet, and then everything comes in on the chorus. There is also an electric guitar playing a monotone part on the chorus. There's an acoustic guitar too.

At the very end the song stops as if the tape reel had been slowed to a halt rapidly.

Been searching youtube for ages now and it's bugging me....

If you can sing it / hum it, then download Soundhound on your iPhone or Android phone. And try to see if Soundhound can help you figure it out.

sounds like a job for sherlock holmes. meantime, is it just ONE girl singing?
and only in Mandarin or where there any english words (taiwanese pop songs like to add a word or two of english).

Tried Soundhound and it's great, but couldn't find my song. Have no idea if it's even in their database of course..
