So thankful someone thought to upload these old gems on to Youtube. Those cheongsams, the moves, the porcelain complexions, and most of all those melodies and voices … the 1940s – 1960s to me are simply intoxicating.
周璇 – 夜上海 (1946).
葛蘭 – 人生何處不相逢 (1960s).
And the uber-entertaining 許冠傑 with 天才白痴钱钱钱 (1975).
This instrumental version of 不了情 is lovely, just for the old signboards in black and white (it’s taken from a 1961 film) –
And how can I possibly leave out an emo version of 不了情 by the great 林黛.
p.s. All is well on the family front after all, big relief! It was a really productive weekend filled with friends and family, and though tiring, was very satisfying. How was yours?
