I watched this 王牌大名星 variety show by accident yesterday, 吴宗宪 and 侯佩岑 was interviewing 刘家昌, a man who wrote lots & lots of beautiful songs during the 70's.
I was still studying in primary school when I was introduced to these songs by my then teenage elder sisters, however, I was surprised that I still able to remember the lyrics and able to sing along while watching the show.
I searchthru YouTube, found some of the songs he sang during the concerts he held at HK and Taiwan. Let's listen to this, 在雨中, a very nice & popular song during those time, with 尤雅:
This one, 海鸥, I remember singing this song in school with friends, another beautiful & touching song, sang by Andy Lau in the concert:
This, 我家在那里, sang by 甄妮, upon hearing this song again, I moderately remembered some movie clips, those acted by 甄珍 (his wife), 林凤娇 (wife of Jackie Chan)，林青霞，秦汉，秦祥林，邓光荣，etc.
For those who seldom listen to Chinese songs, I bet u'd know this song, sang by Teresa Teng 邓丽君，月亮代表我的心, and this 云河 :
Don u think songs from those days r so meaningful, beautiful & easy to remember?
