Today, I share with you a cover version of 你不在 (You’re Not Here) originally sung by Wang Leehom. This cover is performed by YouTube’s one and only Jason Chen.
Reasons why I like this:
- It’s another sweet sounding song and one that Jason sings very very well. A good tune for winding down to.
- Even if you don’t understand what he’s singing, you can still tell what kind of song it is purely by listening to the voice, the music, the song as a whole – it’s what I like to call “musical emotion”.
- He made mistakes but chose to leave them in the video – I love it when people do that. Not only is it amusing but it shows that they’re real people and that everyone makes mistakes sometimes.
- It gives me another song to add to my “search for the original” list. If I hear a cover version of a song, I will almost always look up the original.
- It adds another song to my ever-growing Chinese song list. Because it’s good to stay in touch with your cultural roots, isn’t it? 🙂
