A post for the Chinese people here. This is totally unrelated to anything Gundam but something that was rather shockingly suprising to me as a Chinese (music listener). So just earlier this week while I was hanging out with my Japanese friends, one of them played a really familiar song on Youtube and though I recognized the tune immediately, I was shocked that it was in Japanese! and furthermore, it originated from Japan also! We are talking about one of the most popular “feel good” Cantopop song of its time (and to this day I’d assume) and it was actually originally a Japanese song! xD
Here is the original (Japanese) version. Maybe I am behind the times and everyone was already aware of it but I find it quite amusing as this is one of my favorite songs. You must know this song if you are Chinese. Or SE Asian for that matter.
The Chinese version that I grew up with.
Oh and here’s another super popular Chinese song (“originally” sung by Faye Wong) that was originally Japanese also. I had no idea!
Might not be interesting to those who doesn’t know these songs but it was an interesting discovery for me and my friends who are fond of these songs as well ^^. Are there any more covers like this out there that I’m not aware of?
