New treasures

Along with Yew Huoi came 2 new additions to my small CD collection:


Wa!! I mean, of course the excitement has died down since but still, WA! I finally have my hands on Gary Chaw's new album and not rely on downloaded versions of his songs. I'm a law-abiding person - try not to download as many songs as I possibly can, especially when the artistes involved are fellow Malaysian - notice the 'Original' sticker on the corner of his CD cover. And yes, I agree with Auds, his voice is awesome. Versatile, emotional, transparent. I especially like his version of Jasmine Flower. Where do all these ideas come from? For someone who has not gone through proper vocal training and who taught himself to play the piano, I salute him to the max! I mean, I can't even do what he's doing and I freaking have training! Aih, no talent, so sad...

And yes, VK, I love die you! Oh, and I hate die both the Malaysian and Australian postage systems! (Excuse my usage of Manglish). If you look closely at Michael's CD cover, you will notice that there is a black scribble. That scribble is in fact his autograph! Yup, yup! VK got it for me! I was a tad disappointed as I had expected more than 5 songs in the album. Even with the 5 songs, most were old songs which Michael wrote for other singers. His new song, Commitment, is sadly, a chip off the old block - sounds very similar to Fairytale. Even the chord progressions and style. I do like the song which lyrics were written by Angelica Lee, though. And I think it's this song which is used in the advertisements to promote the Visit Malaysia 2007 campaign in Taiwan. But, all songs bear the signature of Michael - simple, honest, clean and crisp. Like what Miow said, Michael's songs are the only Mandarin songs that I can sing without guessing or looking up for hanyupinying. Yes, it totally sucks to not be able to read and write Mandarin like mum.

I wonder if Fish Leong would have released a new album by the time I get home...
