Well, I bought this CD. And probably everyone knows I'm in China, so I got a Chinese CD. And this singer sings wierd songs! Examples, "Who took my microphone? Dont worry, I still have my throat." And "You are curry, I am chili". :confused:

He hee...China pop singers are just trying to be different from the others by producing wierd songs.
There's a song with the lyrics like this: "Can you here me?" "Can you lead(pronounciation:led) me?" o_O|||
We translated those into Cantonese and it became really funny!

Where abouts are you in CHina? Beijing?

lol, They aren't weird to me, but I'm actually Chinese. :P

I don't litsen buy Chinese music though. If I had any money, I'd spend it on American/Canadian music. Or maybe an aniem soundtrack if I get the chance. ^_^;;

My parents have lots of Chinese songs from the early 90s, I think they are really good! But I don't know the titles of any of them.

I'm chinese. I think some are pretty wierd. Wait... I posted the lyrics wrong. Its "Who STOLE my microphone?" Heh... one more is like "Need to love oyu everyday, its breathing to me". Not all are wierd... one song by S.H.E is from Brown Eyes, by Destiny's Child. Honestly, I think that they did a better job. Sounds better.

i think asian pop has a lot of weirdly translated things...my friend translated a korean song that sounded really cool, then it turned out to be rap-ing about food. -_-;; o dear.

i listened to some chinese artists such as jay chou. hummm i don't know cantonese, but i know some hong kong music artists too! =D many of them are god actors as well.

offtopic about shanghai:
i went to shanghai...and i got two freaking huge mosquito bites. arg, but other than that, i really like the city. =D uhm...this may seem weird, but how do you order french fries @ mcdonalds there?

lol, By the time I saw a MacDonalds I like missed North America so much, oh I got soo much MacDonalds at Beijing lol. My mom's friend in Beijing bought MacDonalds for us but I don't know how he did... X_X;; I thought it runs like an ordinary north American MacDonalds except with Chinese labour and staff.

Pokemaster10000, are you Chinese too? :P

Yeah.... always chinese.... or classical. I don't know.. my parents like stuff that are totally different from me. Is FrostWeaver Chinese? Maybe you can ask them to sing it for the Get-Together, but it'll be 60% not happening.

Yeah, frostweaver is Chinese. He knows both languages so well, he always impresses me with that fact, as I can barely muster one. X_x; 22sa, Miyu, Purinsmart people. ._.;

I dont think he likes singing though, and will probably kill me just for suggesting it. *hides*

*Wakes up for an exception*
You could order them in Chinese, tell them the names...these should be names for the items there:
French Fries: Shu tiao
Hamburger: han bao bao

How to ask in full sentences....I'm not sure =P

Wo yao yi ge han bao bao. Jia da de. Hai yao shu tiao.
I want an extra large hamburger. Plus french fries.
These are not translated directly. Mai la ji han bao is Mac Chicken spicy burger. Sorry, forgot the rest of the names.

How many ppl here are actually Chinese?
iF SO, WHERE abouts do you come from and what language do you speak?

I had heard a few Chinese songs and Cantones songs, but I'm just not a pop music person. I like Chinese folk songs though, I know how to play a few of them on the piano.
And....um...I'm Cantonese.

(Wonders why I keep listening to Pokemon songs everyday for at least 2 hours...)

:knockedou i'm taiwanese and some japanese. lesseee...i can speak taiwanese better than my chinese (mandarin). and for listening, i can understand taiwanese, chinese, and japanese. but for reading/writing i can do that in japanese better. (i can barely read chinese, gar i hate myself)

=D but i'd say i'm mostly taiwanese. kekekeke, i can speak it well too! i only know a couple words in cantonese that my friend taught me, like the numbers 1-10 and yes/no, and some dimsum items. >D hehheh

^____^;;; those lyrics for the chinese song are weird. hummmm, some chinese artists songs i have are jay chou, but i can't really understand what he's singing and most of the time it makes sense. *i guess* he raps pretty good in taiwanese.

Wow! My mother's Taiwanese too!
But I don't know Taiwanese. My mum just not good at it.

lol...*imagines that song being sung*
Lets see...YMCA stands for Youth-"something"-Christian-Association...wonder who and why they made that song.
Anyway back to topic.
I'm kind of clueless about songs sung in Chinese...so what's popular now? *Purin failed for Chinese songs pop quizes*

Jay Chou, S.H.E, Fan Wei Bo(the mic guy), Jolin, erm... one more... forgot his name... I think its Lee Hom or whatever... he sang the chinese "Im lovin it." So, back to my question, isst possible to put mp3 or wmas here?
