    Glad that the "Too Proud" song does bring back memories for quite a few here. Siu Yu, your parents are quite "hip" in those days cos The Voice of Love was normally regarded as "teenager pop music" like those by Paul Anka, Elvis, Ricky Nelson ... About Paul and Francis, they were the class of 1970 and must have gone to Canada for Form 6 (Canada was a fav. place for studying abroad in those years) By the way, 梁舜燕 elder son 阮惠源 was also in that class of 1970 and her younger son 阮惠熊 was the class of 1972 (i.e. a year my junior) They both went to work for RTV after their studies. Okay, let me share with you another rarity oldie, an English song by Rebecca Pan ,in fact a 西詞中曲 ,adapted from the famous mandarin song 痴痴地等 www dot youtube dot com/watch?v=wZ4mIJX400Q I made the MV using some nostalgic scenes in memory of demolished Star Ferry Terminal I find Rebecca's english diction and voice quite different from her Mandarin songs and rather melancholic, which I like. Thanks for reminding me of 夏邦茗. I only have a vague memory of her.

    夏邦茗 was once the weather girl in tvb and also participated in the wah yah college kowloon cantonese opera sung in englsih. the last i know of her is that she headed the estee lauder company in hong kong in the 80's.

    Thank you Peter. i forwarded the 'Too proud' link to my retired boss, who was really thrilled about it. it's his favorite oldieand he's been trying to locate it for 30 years, he said. What a lost gem and just how wonderful!

    Oops. Did I misquote in my last post about that Connie Francis' song which Siu Yu mentioned in his radio show ? It's not High Noon but actually a song called Frankie ?

    i did play 《high noon》by connie francis in that radio show. in fact i posted the saame song in the song performance section of this site. it was made popular in hk by 夏邦茗 (Clare Shao) who sang it in a talent contest way back when.

    Hi Siu Yu How about some really precious music oldie (yes, we called them 歐西流行曲 since the late 50s) this time? Like you mentioned in your radio programme 有誰共鳴, sometimes there were songs which were only made popular in HK by the radio broadcaster , e.g. High Noon by Connie Francis .. Do you remember Too Proud by Johnny Nash ? (He was best known by the big hit The Voice of Love ) Recently some music blog friend managed to find this long lost gem and sent me its mp3. So I've made an MV of it and placed on Youtube and after that there were many feeback saying they are so happy to be able to listen to it again. The link is: www dot youtube dot com/watch?v=6Tn_JfcSlEo Hope it brings back fond memories for the HK baby boomers

    i completely forgot 《too proud》. thanks for reminding and enjoy listening to it again via your youtube clip. is that your turntable? i remember one time i watched my parents dancing to the song 《the v of l》during a tea dance session in 花都夜總會in mongkok. do you have news of paul and francis? back then they were quite popular among high school girls, especially those from girls' school.

    BEING AN OLD READER OF ANCIENT LITERATURES I'M INTERESTED IN ASKING MISS EILEENCHANG [IF SHE EXISTS IN CYBERSPACE/THE SUPER COMPUTER]WHY SHE WAS SO OBSESSED WITH THE DREAM OF RED MANSION & GOLDEN LOTUS; WHETHER SHE WAS AWARE OF THE WORKS OF THE DIVINE MARQUIS DE SADE, WHO PENNED 120 DAYS OF SODOM IN REVOLUTIONARY FRANCE WHEN THE DREAM OF RED MANSION WAS PENNED IN QING CHINA

    i am sure she knew about de sade as she had an open mind and seems quite interested anything that deviates.

    刚刚看完了国内一部长篇电视剧《三国》,好长好长,可是拍得好好,不愿意看名著的观众,也许可以看看,很吸引,不然哪天也要像我曾经一样问,三国,说的是哪三国?惹笑话。

    近年總算從不同途徑得知不少電懋女星的近況,但好像沒有人提及六十年代末國泰時期的台柱陳曼玲,究竟她的近況如何呢?只知道國泰解散後,她拍過龍剛的一些電影,到了八十年代就完全消失了。 另外,你提到麥靈芝,我只記得小時候看娛樂版,她常以中性黑色打扮示人(不知自己有沒有記錯,因為當時實在年紀太小),被稱為「鄧麗君密友」,但她究竟是幹什麼工作?

    回覆(2010/10/9 8:46:35)

    當年麥是以導演身份出現在報章娛樂版。
