There should be lists of songs which drive my tears.
After joining music business / ministry for some years, I learn to listen to songs technically… analyzing the melodies, lyrics, arrangements, singers’ expression, recording, editing, mixing, mastering, graphics design, album concept, text, printing, producing… you name it.
A composer once asked me about the singer’s performance. Guess what’s my answer?
“Not good and not bad… just not my preference.”
I realize I’ve lost the simple ruler of “love and hate”.
It has been so long I’m not touched by a song. When I flip through the old writings here, I realize I was touched and moved by many people and events around me… even I forgot most of the special moments already. Being terribly busy in this year locks me up emotionally. I even don’t have chance to shed tears.
Yesterday when I was travelling to studio for a long recording session, my iPod brought me new song of Eason Chan. The very last one in his new EP caught my heart. Before knowing the meaning of the lyrics, my tears dropped like storming. In two minutes, I tidied up myself and went into the studio.
Tonight I spent part of my sleeping time to chat with my friends aboard. They are my angels. My friend told me he’s bringing me to Malaysia for rest, because he sensed I really need a vacation. Yes, I really need that. At that particular moment, iTunes brought this song to me, and my tears dropped again.
Finally, I got a song that really makes me cry…
