邂逅 – Encounter

Published April 27, 2013 by pink sapphire

Encounter (邂逅) is a xinyao (新谣), that is a Singapore  ballad. Xinyao is a genre unique to Singapore and was started by a group of Chinese stream students during the early 80s.

Encounter is a duet by Eric Moo (巫启贤)and Huang Hui Zhen (黄惠祯). I really like the song. It feels so refreshing, pure and artistic. The Chinese vocabulary used was so poetic and literary. I still don’t know the exact meanings of some of the words in there. In 1983, it made it to the Mandarin Pop charts.

入暮的山途獨有我彳亍,落紅鏗然顯凄清
低吟起那幽陰的歌,歌聲抖出了蕭索
歌韻隱隱飄蕩入我波心,牽引我山游覓覓尋
邂逅你炯瑩的星眸,顫動我翩翩入夢
恒古雋永美麗的神話,莫非已降臨此剎那
默望長空我深深祈禱,愿剎那化永恒典雅

邂逅 – Encounter (Music – Eric Moo, Lyrics – Huang Hui Zhen)

 

The following video is a re-recorded 2003 verson.  The female part was sung by 马毓芬.
