Listening to: Mayday’s 時光機
another back-dated entry, ^_^ coz i was too excited on getting this album haha, finally! 2 years we had to wait for it and 3 more days before it made it’s way to SG, taiwan fans got it on the 11th *pout*, but i must say it’s extremely worth it. My love and respect to these 5 guys who did it against so many odds and so little time. I love this album!! it’s happy and sad all-in-one, especially knowing all that happened during the time they were trying to push out this album on time. Guess it’s really a bitter-sweet victory for them this year, it’s their 5th birthday as well in 2003, so the album means so so so much more to them and to their fans.
My fave fave fave songs from this album has got to be 九好球 (composed by monster!), 我們(時時刻刻), 雌雄胴体 (oh yeah, the way ashin sings it, together with 陳珊妮 on backing, haha it’s fantastic, soooo sexy ^_^). Coming in 2nd would be 而我知道 (seems like a lot of people are speculating on the story behind this song), 賭神 (the flamenco guitar is a fantastic new sound for Mayday) and 時光機.
Of course, I love all the songs on this album, including the 番外篇 which has 小時候, so it’s really really difficult to make a choice between 1st or 2nd, to me, everything is 1st!!! ^_^
writing this 3 weeks after the release of the album, there’s been funny and sad parts… funniest part, 瑪痧 and 怪獸 indulged in a spot of streaking somewhere in taipei near their studio!!! haha omg, and they showed it on tv, bare butts and all!! all because 怪獸 decided to bet with 阿信 that they couldn’t make it for the album release on 11th Nov, and 瑪痧 got dragged into the bet without even knowing what it was about.
sad parts, how tired they look all the time, really feel 心疼 for them, always appearing with black eye rings and 1/2 awake faces, and the media juz keeps calling them “the band who’s always late”…geez, just give them a break. imagine, ming’s knee is still not okay, monster’s mum is still lying at home, and all 5 of them have barely got to go home and see their families and friends since god knows when. haha monster really summed it up after the filming of the 輕工 MV, when he told ashin to write songs with much more relaxing lyrics/titles like 吃到飽，吹冷氣，自然醒, hahaah really fell off my chair laughing at that. just saw another clip this week (4th Dec i thk) when they secretly filmed a clip with ashin’s mum saying some stuff to him, and monster’s eyes juz went red and he had to turn away for awhile.
hmmm, i really feel happy for them on the great sales and their even greater popularity after they came back after their NS, but I can’t say i’m even anywhere near ecstatic about their punishing schedule of publicity stunts, and it doesn’t look like it’s gonna stop soon. Good thing their 宣傳 joe flared up about all the complaints they were receiving. Just hope they get a good long 24 hour sleep and a few good meals before coming to Singapore, dun mind if they come later, just want them to feel great when they come.
