If you guys are still surfing the net on CNY, you must be real desperate. For you, I have compiled some very special entertainment nuggets. These are very treasured performances by some of my favourite artistes. Trust me when I say these clips are very hard to find.
I have saved the best for last, .... Enjoy!
The very hard to find clip where Sam Hui performed with the original group Beyond with Wong Ka Kui.
The very versatile Leslie Cheung where he performed the best known Canto opera with Wong Ming Chuen. Leslie's command of Canto operatic nuances was very admirable, complemented with the proper way to hold the text and hand movements. Sent all Canto opera fans into delirium. Followed by a rare duet by Leslie and Roman Tam.
During Sam Hui's retirement party, one of the treasured moments where Leslie Cheung sang with Sam Hui.
A rare live duet by Sam Hui with Paula Tsui.
Double pleasure in seeing Danny Chan on the same stage with Leslie Cheung.
And finally, possibly the most important Canto song ever recorded. It became a rock anthem, its a power ballad, it was used as an anthem for freedom / democracy / political reform / human rights ... it signified that Cantopop grew up from that day onwards. Its a must for karaoke or pub nights. By Beyond, Hoy Foot Tin Hoong. Brilliant unplugged version, as it should be, and with Ka Kui, of course. I must say that the person who posted the clip translated the song title well, Boundless Oceans, Vast Skies.
