Mandopop: Hebe Tien (田馥甄 )

Hebe Tien from Taiwanese trio S.H.E. here sings in hauntingly beatiful "Insignificance", which thankfully enough is also subtitled in english. I usually doesn't like mandopop ballads as they often feel somewhat slow and even boring (sorry!), but the nerve that Tien gives this song makes it something more. And yes, it *was* shot on Iceland... ;-)

  1. I agree. The newer Mando Pop singers like Hebe and Stefanie Sun are a bit more "nervey" as you say. The older stuff like my wife listens to is, for the most part, slow and boring. Stefanies' new album, Kepler, has some really nice tunes in it....

  2. Yep, and there is a fantastic "explosion" of music videos and more international stuff coming from ("mainland") China too at the moment. Both the quality and variation is increasing in a fantastic rate.
