Write a singer that I appreciate – Eason Chan (by chun:p)
Every time Eason Chan holds concert in Hong Kong Coliseum, all tickets will be sold out in a short time and sure will be full house. Why people like Eason Chan? I liked him very much. To answer this question, you can start from the positioning of Eason Chan in Hong Kong pop music.
In the twenty-first century, there is no “King” in Hong Kong music scene, if a singer who wants to sell its song in “idol line”, then it will be using the youth, handsome, Peugeot as the gimmicks, if singer who wants to sell its song in “talented line” , it will be selling talent, uniqueness creation … … in order to attract fans.
Some people from the idol line to the talented line, such as Nicholas Tse, some people are running on two both lines, such as Wang Lee Hom. So where is selling point of Eason Chan?
Em…This is not easy to answer, I will not speak directly, however I believe he will be a new generation of “king” in Hong Kong Music Industry.
His songs in the form are similar to the type in the mainstream, topic is still focusing on love, melody same as commercial song, that’s easy to catch up, the lyrics are also full of emotional language, but a closer look on the lyrics, we will find some different elements from the mainstream. Eason Chan’s song rarely talk about how sweet of love, did not say how lovelorn miserable (with a few exceptions), Eason Chan’s song sometimes reflect the alienation of society, but not generous to sing out dissatisfaction with social reality. For example, Eason Chan’s “Shall We Talk” has expressed a touch of melancholy for parent-child alienation.

If you ask Eason Chan’s songs are all about love? The theme of many of his songs is quite ambiguous. With the father and son love metaphor in the song of “Bicycle”, “Happiness” and “Ferris wheel” can be put together in one topic?
“In the heart ashamed” (Song Name) seems to be love song, but “determined to help the world out of poverty that is so great to how promising” this lyrics also leads to philosophy, listening to these lyrics, you will find the meaning is more than just talking love. Lyrics of Eason Chan’s songs seem complicated, so that we think the lyrics are a package, there should be a message on the behind.
This feature is a point to attract me, and that is why I love Eason Chan.[End]
