My respected singer – Wong Ka Kui (By . man)
Remember when I was a Form 1 student, I had a cassette player (repeat machine), it is mainly for me to learn English, and later on I felt boring, I went to records shop buy singer’s cassette tape for fun.
Once time, when I went to a shopping mall, I saw a cassette tape that labeled with title of “Missing You, Wong Ka Kui”, on that time, I do not know he was already passed away, and I even do not know what does he look like, what is rock musical style, the lyrics are Cantonese that I also do not understand (I am Chinese, but I am not a native Cantonese Speaker), however I like his songs, I listen to his songs every day and I follow his voice and singing with the lyrics. Finally, I was fevered with this type of music, I like the feeling of running on the ideal and poetic road, I gradually understand the people and the background of that era.
Sometimes it is too pity that the glorious star in the path of life forever gone, how cannot let their fans crying? Wong Ka Kui. who’s the soul of the Hong Kong band – BEYOND , on 5 June, 1993 he left the world, up to now, it has been 24 years. Although some of the bands like “Tat Ming Pair”, “Tai Chi” and the new generation such as “Black Box” and “ZEN” are very unique and has their characteristics, but any band cannot replace the position of Beyond. Note that BEYOND here is a prerequisite, that is, Wong Ka Kui’s period, because he is forever soul of BEYOND, his departure let BEYOND formed a next style line.
Not too much people as tough as him, with the ideal and passion for the music, no matter how hard and even with sad tears, he never abandoned.
I was sitting on the bus suddenly remembered this . on the bus, the Roadshow TV screen’s showing his concert, he’s still bare hot body, earrings, angry red crown with gentle singing voice. Ten thousand fans were holding the luminous sticks, formed a lighting ocean.
Memories wake up, in high school graduation when the whole class were singing the same song , as in yesterday. And then I graduated from university, once again sitting in a small room in KTV with classmates, we are stilling singing the same song. but each year, gradually less, and less classmates can join our gathering. Since then, each classmate is busy for its own way, now, whenever we sing the same song, especially draw my emotional.
Look at the screen and the date of video, still remain few years to 1993. Wong Ka Kui still has time, for the ideal to do their own music, sing a song for Mandela. It is really the golden age of Hong Kong music ─ ─ ─ he and his band mates, four people can support the half of the rocky sky in Hong Kong.
At that time, Hong Kong music industry contains many singers and songs, only Wong Ka Kui has his unique charming style. At that time, Wong Ka Kui’s singing “ten beautiful dream over the sky, warm love infiltrated the breeze, love to compete every second per minute, gently smile frustration and then work.” That is through the Chinese language rock the most pure touch , It is the heyday of Hong Kong music , the impact of unrivaled age, it is the era of super stars, it is the record industry called the myth of the legend.[End]
