CeeJay's Pick of the Month (Feburary) -周柏豪 Pakho Chau - 近在千里 (feat. 衛蘭)

Hello!

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.

寧願與你一分一秒視作一生中小插曲
停在最遠處送給你祝福
時常夢見你相識一個為你披起婚紗慶祝
連幻覺我也有些痛卻心足

聽你開心結局
至放心你讓我冥目
有斑點狗與我流連到避世小屋

原來越愛我越需要嘗試放手
躲進地球後 大方一點撤走
遙遙望你最後一眼微笑與否
名份縱使沒有
願你在未來的配偶
令你活到這樣甜 削減 我掛念你借口

名字快要稀釋沖淡別要天天都考記憶
明白愛你要轉一個方式
如重讀我送一本小說令你輕鬆多於嘆息
期望你世界再不要太灰色

坐我的觀眾席
遠遠起哄為你努力
每一天打聽你傳聞快樂也忐忑

原來越愛我越需要嘗試放手
躲進地球後 大方一點撤走
遙遙望你最後一眼微笑與否
名份縱使沒有
願你為著人生奮鬥
別理會我怎樣愁

衛蘭:
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

人離越遠我越感到難以放手
期望你好便夠
願你共未來的配偶
別要像我這樣愁 至少叫你綻放笑口

那怕是我荒謬

Thanks for reading/listening!
