Chinese Pop Star

#28 Jay Chou – The King of Chinese pop 周杰伦-中国流行音乐之王

Podcast Transcript

大家好,欢迎回来MaoMi Chinese。今天我想和大家聊一聊一个家喻户晓的歌星:周杰伦。你跟任何一个中国人说起周杰伦,他们一定都会知道,也都会唱一两句他的歌。

“当不知道听什么音乐的时候,周杰伦永远是最好的选择。”这是很多中国年轻人都同意的话。周杰伦,1979年出生。他非常喜欢音乐,也很喜欢弹钢琴,他弹钢琴也弹得特别好。2000年,在21岁的时候,周杰伦发表了他的第一张CD。他自己作曲,自己写歌词。他的歌非常受年轻人欢迎,我们来听一听他21岁的时候写的歌。

他也有一些非常快的歌,让人常常听不清他在唱什么。所以当时,我们的爸爸妈妈不太喜欢他,因为听不懂他的歌,但是我们依然觉得他的歌很酷,比如这首《双截棍》。

歌词很难听懂,对不对?如果拿他的歌去做HSK的听力考试,我想很多朋友都会哭。

周杰伦14岁的时候,他的爸爸妈妈离婚了,他先和爸爸生活,18岁的时候,他开始和妈妈一起生活。周杰伦和他的妈妈很亲近。小的时候,别的小孩子可以玩,但是周杰伦的妈妈让他好好弹钢琴。刚开始他觉得不高兴,不开心,但是后来他明白了妈妈的用心。所以,他写了一首歌给他的妈妈,这首歌叫《听妈妈的话》。我们一起来听一听。

周杰伦的音乐有很多种风格,有古典音乐风格,美国乡村音乐风格,蓝调,等等等等。他的音乐还有一种特别的风格:中国风。我们一起来听一听,周杰伦中国风音乐最有名的一首——《青花瓷》。

青花瓷,blue and white porcelain,是中国很有名的东西,也让我们想起了中国的古代,想起了古代的爱情故事。这也是我最喜欢的一首歌之一。

好啦,今天和大家分享了我最喜欢的歌星之一。你们喜欢哪一个歌星呢?欢迎在MaoMi Chinese 的网站上给我们留言哦!

Hello everyone. Welcome back to MaoMi Chinese. Today I would like to talk something about a pop song singer who is known by every household, Jay Chou. If you talk to any Chinese people about Jay Chou, they definitely know him, and can also sing some of his songs.

“When you don’t know what music to listen to, Jay Chou is always the best choice.” This is agreed by loads of Chinese young people. Jay Chou was born in 1979. He loves music a lot, as well as playing the piano. He can play the piano especially well. In 2000, when he was 21 years old, Jay Chou published his first CD. He wrote the music and the lyrics by himself. His songs were really popular among young people. Let’s listen to his song which was written when he was 21 years old.

When Jay Chou was 14, his dad and mum got divorced. He firstly lived with his dad, and when he was 18, he started to live with his mum. Jay Chou was very closed to his mum. When he was little, other children could play but his mum made him practise the piano. At first, he was not happy, but gradually he understood why his mum did that. Therefore, he wrote a song to his mum, which is called “Listen to What Mum Said”. Let’s listen together.

Jay Chou has various styles in his music, classic, American folk, R&B and so on. He also made special music, traditional Chinese style. Let’s listen to his most famous Chinese-style song, “Blue and White Porcelain”

Blue and white porcelain is something very famous in China. It also reminds us of ancient China and ancient romantic stories. This is also one of my favourite songs.

Okay. Today I have shared my favourite pop song singer with you. Who is your favourite pop song singer? Welcome to leave comments on our website!
