MOTD: Yoga Lin – Captain S.V

林宥嘉 – 思凡 [官方版HD] MV

Yoga Lin – Captain S.V

It’s true. Sometimes I wish there are more poetry or more depth to the songs I hear in English. So please open your ears to this tune, in a language you might not understand. Enjoy it musically, and if you’d like, understand it, with my attempt to help breaking down the language barrier, and pushing forward the concept that “music is a universal language.” 

思凡 (literally meaning: Missing the Ordinary)
詞:藍小邪 曲:JerryC 編曲:JerryC

[verse]

So they haven’t figure out how to control emotions yet;
And they haven’t cracked the secrets of suffering extreme distress…
But it seems that the sadness produced by the brain can make happiness more happy

How hard is it to maintain the best weather?
I can’t believe that there are still changing seasons…
But the so-called snowflake does look better than recorded…

[chorus]

I have to quickly investigate and understand
What is the fascination of this planet that is so behind?
What makes the captain that should have long returned not willing to leave?

We have already evolved into the perfect state.
Why do we still miss the ordinary?
Unless it’s a defect to have no drawbacks and regrets in life?

[music]

[verse]

The crude body of blood and flesh is very fragile,
Yet it is warmer than the one with copper head and metal arms,
Unless life has to be short in order for us can understand how real time is?

On Earth, my planet looks like a grain of dust,
If humans found out, how excited will they be and how much they will worship?
The one we sent, however, is not willing to come back…

[chorus]

I have to quickly investigate and understand
What is the fascination of this planet that is so behind?
What makes the captain that should have long returned not willing to leave?

We have already evolved into the perfect state.
Why do we still miss the ordinary?
Unless it’s a defect to have no drawbacks and regrets in life?

[guitar solo]

I think I am slowly, finally, starting to see,
why this behind planet is so lovely…
I wish I could be like Captain, be brave, and not leave again.

The more we are evolved in this perfect state,
The even more we will miss the ordinary…
Those imperfect lives, how can they, still, see no way out? (how can they, still, be in despair?)

“Yoga Lin (also known as James Lin, Chinese: 林宥嘉) is the winner of One Million Star, Season 1 (第一季超級星光大道), an American Idol style TV singing competition in Taiwan. After winning the contest, he signed with the Taiwanese record label, HIM International Music along with three other fellow contestants, Judy Chou (周定緯), Peter Pan (潘裕文), Stanly Hsu (許仁杰).”

There are many Asian artists who are really awesome, but he has a unique charm.

 

Easily, the best among his generation. His songs are available on iTunes!

Perhaps you’ll enjoy his cover of these English songs while he was still a contestant from a talent show in Taiwan. Warning… he grew a lot better throughout the competition.
