I will be obsessed until I die. To those former fans who have moved on... It's their loss.

Anyone know where in the movie Eunuch w/ Headache and Extra Large Shoes was played ? I never heard it :( But somehow they are in the OST. Maybe only for Asian version of the movie ?\They're played in the U.S version whenever they go to the shop. Eunuch is played through headphones when they first meet Jay and he's sitting down listening to music. You just gotta pay attention.
Also how come the song in the movie credits had Chinese chorus I never heard anywhere else..whereas all other versions have English chorus I'm so confused.
Yooooo, haven't been on for so long. Not the biggest fan of the new album to be honest. 告白氣球 is nice chilled song, really like the rapped part at the beginning. A few nice slow ballads as usual.Really? I thought Bedtime Stories, and Lover From The Past were awesome redemption songs for not having enough dark gothic style songs in recent albums like Opus. I still think there are too many slow ballads in this album and it really needs a classic Jay Chou style R&B song like Mermaid, or Sign Language(but without autotune). I really could do without the Zhong Guo Feng(the slow ones anyways). Those are really overrated to me and I think he's done enough of them to where they are starting to blend together and sound alike. I feel the same with his recent slow ballads. I think he is the best at doing gothic style rap with a bit of classical music, so songs like Casualties Of War, Twilight Chapter 7, Nocturne, In The Name Of The Father, and also the not too slow R&B love songs like Carnival, You Can Hear It, etc.. That is why Ye Hui Mei, Common Orange Jasmine, and November's Chopin all did so well. They all had a mix of those styles.
Haven't listened to the album much tbh. I'll give it a few more listens before I give a final verdict.
Well that was a bit freakyThis is the best Jay Chou MV I've ever seen.
There's almost no original Jay stuff nowadays..He hasn't even finished with the MV's, I don't think we will see an album until late this year. Another season of Voice of China..I like it but that show is way too time consuming..
The other studio song he has sung and which was written by someone else would have to be Cindy Yen's Sand Painting, right?
Anyway, I thought the song was quite catchy and found myself singing and moving along after a couple of listens, perhaps helped by the cute images in the MV. :)
I shall thus respectfully disagree with jaychoufanatic's use of the words, 'terrible' and 'sucks' to describe the song.
Yea it's not very good, at least Jay didn't write it I suppose. This must be one of the very few times he's sung a studio song written by someone else.Glad someone agrees with me. People on YouTube actually responded that it was a good song after I commented that it sucked. Must be Jay's newer fans. It's hard to find senior fans to talk to these days like Kelvin and myself. I actually don't really care that Jay sang in this song as long as he didn't write it and as long as it doesn't go in his next album. I'm actually more hopeful about his next one because Aiyo Bu Cuo had some classic sounding songs, like Qie Ai (窃爱) Stolen Love. Hopefully his next one is even better, since it's taking so damn long...
It will be a new tour.
OPUS 2 Jay officially ended on 20 December in Kunming.
Promo about the song for Kung Fu Panda with Patrick Brasca, with English and Chinese lyrics:
Thanks for the link..
He says his role is very short, I think it is just one scene..of him in the magic shop and doing a few tricks and then done with the movie.
Interesting how he still says he wants to learn directing process even though he says he's done with directing ?
If he gets to use his old song, I think Twilight Chapter Seven or Enchanting Melody would be fitting. I prefer Twilight. Hopefully they use it when Jay appears in the movie.
I like the second half,when I was first listening to the first few songs I thought that it was worse than Exclamation Marks but the second half saves the album.The ballads with the exception of What Kind of Man which I feel that has some of the worst lyrics of from his albums.The upbeat rock song is getting worse with each incarnation.The Zhonguofeng one also is forgettable.
Overall It's sad but it seems that he is content in doing the same thing over again like autopilot.I have no issue if there is 2-3 classic Jay style songs to please the fans but repeating the formula and having the very similar type songs he's done before and now done less catchy and exciting is not good.
Haha I really haven't noticed. I wouldn't consider Lonely Christmas by Eason a Christmas song though well not in the same sense as how I consider songs like "All I Want For Christmas is You" or "Jingle Bell Rock" as Christmas songs. The lyrics to the Eason song has the word Christmas in it but that's about it.
What do you think makes those Jay song sound Christmasy?
