A Chinese song for a change. I chanced upon 夜空中最亮的星 when I was watching a Chinese variety show and found the song nice. At that time, I had no inkling of 逃跑计划 (or Escape Plan), the band behind the song.
So I did a quick research online, and found some interesting information about the band and the song.
逃跑计划 is an indie rock band from China formed in 2004. Their music has been described as a combination of indie pop, new wave and punk.
夜空中最亮的星 is a track from their debut album, “Earth”, released in 2011. The song enjoyed mainstream popularity when it was performed on Chinese singing competition shows.
While researching the song, I have seen covers by many singers such as 张杰，陈奕迅 and even Korean band N.Flying.
Here’s a live performance of the song at the 2013 Shanghai Midi Festival:
