Found some songs that I particularly liked from the 30s till the 60s, the so called golden era for Shanghai themed / early movies Chinese melodies. Take a trip back to an era when we weren't even around, its so pure and clear, what a wonderful era for music.
Mona Fong's near perfect English diction and exquisite Yeh Lai Siang
Tsin Ting's heart wrenching biggest hit
and my all time favourite from the 30s-60s Chinese songs of yesteryear, by Wu Ying Yin
