Fun With Chinese Pop Music (In English)

It can be said that Chinese is a very romantic county.  By this I mean that there a strong sense of romance in relationships in China.  There's still a quaint "boy meets girl power of love overwhelms" kind of sense to dating.  I find the frankness lack of cynicism refreshing.   This spirit shows up in Chinese Pop music, where love themes abound.  The thing that's fun and funny for me, is that a lot of this music is in English.  The younger generations in Chinese all grew up around English and there is quite a culture of Chinese pop sung in English.  Maybe it makes it a little bit of kick to mom and dad, who probably can't understand a word of it.   Minxi and I listen to Chinese pop music from time to time so I thought I'd post a couple of hopelessly sweet songs sung in English.  It's so sweet.

I've Been Searching

Speak of Love

There's the occasional word bobble, and the riffs occasionally sound a bit odd, but Chinese pop produces great love songs, and  in English.  That's awesome!
