Landy Wen - AYO

Heyyyyy what can make me come back and start translating? Did you guess a new Landy album? Well you're right. Landy + me = BFF.

Also Landy has a YouTube channel! With pretty HD videos! NICE.

This is a pretty fun album! So far none of the slow songs have made too much of an impression on me, but I haven't been in a slow song mood lately. The fast songs have a nice variety though. Got some clubby ones, some good mood groove ones, and some offbeat ones. This one is a club anthem with an aggressive motif, kind of like "熱浪 Heatwave" or "D.I.S.C.O" from her last two albums.

末日是個未知數the number of last days is unknown
明天會不會結束will tomorrow be the end?
翻開夢想的藍圖open up the blueprint of your dreams
現在的你是否滿足is the current you satisfying?
追求是因為企圖chasing because you're trying
犯錯是為了回顧failing in order to look back
記住相愛的溫度remember the warmth of mutual love1
太容易就不叫幸福if it's too easy it can't be called happiness
*回到最初最原始的單純*return to that earliest and most primal purity
讓心自由為愛情找出口let the heart freely find the way out for love
#你給我用力吼#roar with all your strength for me
你給我拍拍手clap your hands for me
你給我大聲一起 AYO OH AYOsay loudly for me, all together: ayo! oh ayo!
你給我聽清楚listen carefully for me
這時候我作主right now I'm the boss
你跟我大聲一起 AYO OH AYO]say loudly together with me: ayo! oh ayo!
末日是個未知數the number of last days is unknown
就算明天會結束even if tomorrow is the end
翻開夢想的藍圖open up the blueprint of your dreams
選擇戰鬥還是認輸choose whether to fight or to give up
奔跑是因為企圖rushing because you're trying
就算前途是迷霧even if the way forward is lost in fog
出獵才能夠登陸only by going hunting can you reach land
太容易就不叫幸福if it's too easy it can't be happiness
repeat *repeat *
repeat # x2repeat # x2
原住民古調(aboriginal language)
讓我們看太陽日昇日落let us look at the sun rising and setting
讓我們看海洋波濤洶湧let us look at the ocean waves surging and breaking
repeat # x2repeat # x2

1. Literally the "temperature" but I suspect this may have been chosen due to the way it puns on Landy's surname.

:D this entry popped up on my Google Alerts! zomg you are making me very happy right now because it's impossible to find hardcore Landy fans <3

my fave fast song from Landing is 來我家.. wish there was an MV for it! and I miss her power ballads from her earlier albums, so 泪不停 is perfect. 忍不住原谅 is really nice too! 傻瓜 --> 我全都相信 --> 忍不住原谅 </3

來我家 is my favorite too. Don't give up on an MV for it, right now I think there is only an MV for AYO. If she follows the pattern from earlier albums, then the other MVs will come out gradually. IE on Dancing Queen, DISCO was the first, but MVs were eventually released for 刺蝟、不要愛上我、放開你的頭腦、and 我全都相信 (I don't remember what order they came out in, but I think 不要愛上我 was second). That's 5 MVs out of 10 songs, so I'd say the odds are pretty good we will see a 來我家 MV.

My guess is that 忍不住原諒 will be the next MV, we'll see if I'm right. :)

I'm going to translate 來我家 next for sure.

it's such a cheeky song, lol. I don't think there's going to be one though, because according to the liner notes they only produced music videos for AYO, 手印, Naluwan, 忍不住原谅 and 泪不停. pity, because I can imagine what a fun video 来我家 would make!

oh btw, any idea why A Ha isn't on the album? I managed to download the leaked tracks the night before the album was released (OH MY GOD THE PACKAGING <3) and A Ha was on it, but not Landing. I really like A Ha! I love how they snuck in song titles from her previous albums into the lyrics, just like with 不要太乖 :D

the video for 我全都相信 always gets me.. ;__; looking forward to more translations! sometimes I don't really think about what the lyrics sound like in English, so your translations are really cool. I'll definitely keep commenting <3

Aw I didn't even think about liner notes. Nuts. :C Of all the up-tempo songs on the album to make MVs of they picked NALUWAN? I guess they're really trying to push her aboriginal ancestry in this album. I blame A-mei! (Although Amit was an amazing album, but NALUWAN is not up to that standard.)

來我家 reminds me a lot of some of her earlier mysterious/slightly creepy/exotic songs like 潘朵拉. Those were always some of my favorites.

I don't think I'll ever get over 喇叭嘴 not getting an MV. IT WOULD HAVE BEEN THE BEST EVER.

IKR? I've been fighting the temptation to skip Naluwan when I listen to Landing, because it's just not that interesting a song to me.. A-mei is my other favourite Mandopop singer! when I read that this album was going back to her roots, I was expecting something...more? (fangirling the both of them rn and IT'S SO TIRING hahaha. I *just* watched an old variety show special on A-mei <3)

hopefully Naluwan has her real-life friends in it, since she wrote it for them. also hoping that her parents and brother star in 手印! that would be super adorable (:

haha 发烫 is my fave of the "mysterious/slightly creepy/exotic songs"! I haven't been able to get into 潘朵拉 and 喇叭嘴.. maybe if the latter had an MV I would've appreciated it more! I think 热浪 is my least favourite album thus far, even though her styling for that album is still my favourite. it looks like she got a nose job this time, which makes me DDDD: because it's so unnecessary :(

teaser for the second MV is out! it's 手印 though.. thought it should've been 忍不住原谅 or 泪不停! hoping her parents make an appearance somewhere in the video.. and she looks stunning <3

Also you remind me how much I like 我全都相信. Maybe I should translate that one too.

And thanks for commenting, by the way! I really appreciate comments.
