生日快乐 by 伍思凯 (Sky Wu) was first released in 1989 on the compilation album featuring various artistes, 我们II – 生日快乐. He later rearranged it into a dance track for his 1996 album, 心动了. The music is written by Sky and the lyrics by 陈桂珠.
The song can also be found in Sky’s other albums, 我真的很不错精选集 (1993) and 分享伍思凯 SHARING with SKY (2000).
I remember somebody asking me for the tab of this song some years back but I never got around to posting it. So here it is. Would be a good alternative to the usual “Happy Birthday” song.
From the word ‘go’, Jason Mraz had everyone on their feet, singing, dancing, tapping and clapping along. He was charming and witty. His singing, as usual, was almost flawless, hitting the high and low notes with equal ease.
The most memorable part of the concert was probably when he sang “Mr Curiosity”, complete with the operatic music interlude of the song. At one point during the song, the whole concert hall went very quiet and that’s when one could really hear how good he sounded.
Nearing the end of the concert, he introduced his band by imitating the sounds of the individual instruments they play. Haha..amazing. The crowd went wild when he took Polaroid photos of his band members and of himself, and threw them into the audience. I just wished I was nearer to the stage.. 😉
One other interesting part of the concert was when Jason and his bassist, saxophonist, trumpeter and trombonist did synchronised movements to the song, “Butterfly”. Delightful.
It was hard to find anything I did not like about the concert. The only imperfection in an otherwise perfect concert was Joi Chua singing “Lucky” with Jason Mraz; she had some pitching problems.
At one and a half hours, the concert is a tad short but it’s only because we can’t get enough of Jason Mraz. But it’s understandably hard on him with his crazy schedule – 4 March in Malaysia, 5 March in Singapore, 6 & 7 March in Indonesia…
Jason Mraz is such a natural performer/entertainer. Looking forward to catch him live again!
Oasis will be playing in Singapore in support of their latest album, “Dig Out Your Soul”. The concert is slated for 5 April 2009, 8pm, at the Singapore Indoor Stadium. Tickets are now on sale.
This should be a worthwhile concert to go to. Oasis is one of the biggest bands from the UK and they’ve got some good songs like Don’t Look Back in Anger, Wonderwall, Whatever and Live Forever. I’ve not listened to them much in recent years, so what I remember of them and their songs are from many years back.
The fierce rivalry between Oasis and Blur was a major talking point in the 1990s. If you ask me, I prefer Blur to Oasis any time. Are you for Oasis or Blur?
