We have been looking through some new songs this month and to our surprise, only a couple of HK songs have been released. The most memorable song we heard this month was Pakho's 近在千里 (feat. 衛蘭 Janice). We were quite excited to hear this collaboration, knowing that both are considered "better" singers in the cantopop industry today. Unfortunately, Janice only had a couple of lines to sing near the end. We would have preferred it if she had a more prominent part of the song with solo parts, so you can better hear her soft voice. The instrumental part was too loud and this song was a waste for her singing. Pakho's singing is on par with his usual style (soft, slower songs). The tune is comforting and overall likable. The only thing we find with Pakho is that he can be a bit boring sometimes and doesn't have much to show off for his vocal techniques.
What we are really interested in is the music video. We noticed that it's the same girl from his last MV, and there's the same planet/moon hanging low in the sky that's seen in both of the videos, so we are assuming that they are about the same characters/story.
Basically the story of this one is the girl and guy go camping together and somewhere along the lines, they get separated and can't find each other.
This MV is confusing to us when put in the context of the last video. This must've been the prelude since she did die in the one that they released earlier. We haven't really gotten into finding out the story from the people in the comments either so now we're just listening to the song mostly.
周柏豪 Pakho Chau - 近在千里 (feat. 衛蘭)
作詞：林若寧 (英文詞: Kenix Cheang)
令你活到這樣甜 削減 我掛念你借口
Just close your eyes
And be with me forever
Always by my side
No matter what comes by
You've touched my heart
I swear I'll love you forever
By the starlights in the sky
Thanks for reading/listening!
