    Joanna…just listened to the song and it looks/sounds like a very bad copy of Norah Jones style…Joanna-Jones ???? however, the text ridiculous as usual:

    wind is still blowing…make me feel especially… I miss you…dreaming of you…my love…I’m not lonely…You are so nice to me…It’s really different this time…you’re always there for me….My dear, my dear love…Thank you….love, love…exciting moment…..a…da…na…da…Ah…dah…nah…dah

    then another song will be nearly the same, with the only exception that they first start with dadada..ahahaha all the way back to that the wind is blowing…

    another point is that this crap is not sellable in china…in china you have to put on a fancy show on stage, firework, hand out this ridiculous neon sticks, plastic hand claps to the audience, cause they like to wave with them (always against the rhythm)…reminds me of the Olympic games, where in the stadiums every 10 meter was some sort of “i will show you when to clap adviser” to make emotions and excitement of chinese people look authentic. Cause even they know that their timing about what and when to show emotions kinda sucks, so they must be taught this shit…..

  • she calls herself newtokyoterror on ytb

    How did the 2nd woman die at age 40??

      Anita Mui…cervical cancer I think, forgone treatment because she still wanted to have children

        & may her soul rest in peace. I love that lady (Mui Yimfong) best female actress to come out of ALL of China hands down! Funny, witty, intelligent, and just my favorite female actress in China period. I wish i could’ve met her in person.

    The song is not bad, but as is often the case, the original is better.

    Anita Mui had so much talent. Anyone remember her performance in ‘Rouge’?


    • Yes! Stunning performance-I got goose bumps when I watched “Rouge”!

  • hawflakes

    Any reason why you transliterated her name as Joanna Wong when she actually goes by the pinyin “Wang” given that she’s born in Taipei and not Cantonese.
