Can you help me identrify this Chinese singer?

Post by Takoyaki » Sat 01.10.2009 11:37 am

I know this is a Japanese site, lol. But perhaps someone here happens to be an avid Chinese music listener. Check out this site I found and give a quick listen. If you can identify her for me you will win one million dollars! (Just kidding! But I would be very grateful!) http://blog.udn.com/zhuzhu/2423916

And even if you can't figure out the answer, it's such a cool song.... :D

Am I missing something? There was no singing on that blog anywhere except for a photo of a funny-looking couple with microphones.

Strange. It played continously for me. I was using Internet Explorer and Google's translation service to view the page. Maybe it only works some of the time or with the right plug-ins.

I went back on the site without the translator and it still plays automatically for me. If you can't get it to work in the browser you are using you can try another (if you have others installed). In either case I thank you for looking.

Ah... I guess I don't have whatever plug-ins are needed then. I'm using Safari. Sorry I couldn't help. Good luck finding out who it is!

Yes, Safari is a bit of a pain sometimes with this sort of thing. I have had my experience with it.

とにかく、ありがとう!

For what it's worth, I'm on Firefox and never had any troubles playing media of any sort, and I don't see/hear any song, either.

私は聞けましたよ。
好きな感じの歌だったので私も知りたくなり、よく読んでみました。
下のほうに緑の文字で「背景音楽」と書いてあったので、中国語がわからなくてもなんとかなりました^^;

黄雅莉(Huang Yali)という人の、蝴蝶泉边という曲みたいですね。

あちらのサイトでは文字のコピーができなかったので、
youtubeにあったビデオのタイトルをコピーしてきました。
边という字が元サイトとは違うようですが、どちらが正式な表記なのかはわかりません。

You're right. It won't work on my Firefox. Only Internet Explorer works for me.

Youtubeをチェックしていました。本当に、黄雅莉さんに似ています。すごくきれいな歌です。

私には同じです。迷惑だなぁ。

ときどきその字は変わるんですね。スタイルによって違うみたいです。じゃ、十分だと思います。情報をくれてありがとう!

This looks like a travel log of China, written by someone from Taiwan

The title reads "蝴蝶泉邊". "邊" is the traditional form of 辺.

That makes sense. Thanks for clarification. :D

I actually bought the album that the song is from yesterday. The album is called 崽崽 (Zai Zai) . I couldn't find a definition for the double hanzi but I found several people referring to themselves as 崽崽, like a nickname. 崽 by itself I found meant "the young of animals" or "A diminutive." So I am thinking it might mean something like "Mini" as a name.
