hi! I stumbled upon this community by accident while looking for lyrics, but I'm glad I did. sorry about the title - I've had Avril Lavigne's Girlfriend stuck in my head ever since I discovered she recorded the chorus in Mandarin (ha ha). anyways, I hope I can contribute to this comm one day.
also, I got a little too into favourite Chinese artists/styles....
Name/handle: you can call me Megan or everside!
Your level of Chinese: about a Chinese elementary schooler's level? I just finished taking AP Chinese and got a 5, but then again I'm a 华裔 (huayi - foreign citizen of Chinese origin) so it was kind of expected.. oh wait I forgot to mention that I can only speak Mandarin. Cantonese is a mystery to me. :( and I can't speak any special dialects. I can understand minimal Changsha dialect though.
Do you read Traditional or Simplified? simplified all the way! but I can sort of guess my way around traditional characters.
Favorite Chinese artists/styles: oh boy this is kind of hard. beware a ramble.
some of my big favourites are Khalil Fong, The Life Journey, Mayday, Soft Lipa...I like some of Jay Chou's older stuff, and I have a lot of respect for Wang Leehom despite only owning one album from him. I'm a little in love with Hedgehog especially after hearing their new album (Sun Fun Gun). JJ Lin's voice = my love, and I like how he's been experimenting with a little jazz. clearly, a lot of my favourites are guys haha but I do like female singers! they're more of a recent thing for me though, so I haven't known them long enough to consider them some of my favourites (or I have known them for a while but they're not really my thing, like S.H.E. or Fish Leong).
going on...I'm in love with Qu Wanting and Jane Zhang's voices, although Jane's songs can be meh sometimes. I'm liking R. Chord after hearing his 于是长大了以后 album, and I kind of adore Yen-J. I like some songs from Hou Xian, but his singing is weak, unfortunately...his music overall sounds a bit too 'thin' for me. D: Anthony Neely has a lot of good songs. I really like some of Liu Xin's songs (one of the new Super Boys; his Chinese name is 刘心). I recently stumbled upon the awesomeness that is SingerSen; she is fantastic. I like a few songs from The Girl and the Robots, Carrchy, and Queen Sea Big Shark. I like Wang Wen for background music (haha). I've been kinda into The Honeys lately. Crowd Lu's music is adorable. I really like Waa / Wei Ruxuan. I like Yoga Lin. And G.E.M. too because she's a good pop singer. I love Zhang Jie's voice. And I have a soft spot for Top Combine because they were my first boyband love (I was pretty late to the idol scene lol). and um I end up listening to a lot of traditional erhu/guzheng/other instruments such as matouqin music and old folk music (possibly Mongolian? he is from Gansu province) because my dad plays it a lot.
I've recently been listening to PixelToy, and I have a fondness for some of B6's stuff, including what his duo IGO released. I've also finally started to listen to Bibi Zhou, Sodagreen, NyLas, Deserts Zhang, and a bit of Snapline (apparently they are industrial rock? I'm not good with genres), and I like what I hear. And Cheer Chen! Laure Shang is cool too. Her French is amazing. *_*
tl;dr - I like pretty much everything except for metal.
How you want to be credited: my LJ username/my Tumblr username (boardingoose) + my music Tumblr (eastimpressions)
Favorite furry mammal: I like cats. but pandas and polar bears are also cool. C:
I love your eyes, my friend on the road
And their flickering as they dart back and forth
I put my thoughts of longing softly by your pillow

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.

Your level of Chinese: I'm at zero-level, which unfortunately means that I can't translate anything, but I'm very willing to learn and would like to discuss lyrics with fellow Chinese music lovers, if that's allowed here. I'm looking into Rosetta Stone for Mandarin, but I eventually want to learn Cantonese as well since I enjoy the Chinese entertainment industry so much. I have ever since I was about 12 or 13 years old when I began taking my first steps to learn about Asian history and culture in general.
I'm currently a student at Full Sail University, taking online classes in Creative Writing for Entertainment with high aspirations of becoming a screenwriter, and quite frankly, I've been inspired by martial arts films of the Ang Lee and Zhang Yimou variety. That mainly has to do with Zhang Ziyi's involvement in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and The House of Flying Daggers, so excuse my bias. I feel she's such a versatile actress and could take on any project that's thrown her way, but I hate how she gets so many typecast roles... I'll just end this rant now.
Do you read Traditional or Simplified? Eventually, I would like to read both and become as fluent as earthly possible in the language and its many dialects. I realize this will be a life-long overtaking that I probably will never accomplish due to the enormity of the language, but I really can't imagine myself as anything other than a student, even if I have a job that supports my lifestyle. I think many college students who truly enjoy learning have this problem. They know exactly what they want to do - what kind of career and lifestyle they desire - but the thirst for knowledge is an all-encompassing one that can leave a person feeling torn.
Favorite Chinese artists/styles: Overall, my top-two favorite artists (in order) are Zhou Bichang and Stefanie Sun.
I just recently got my hands on a copy of Bibi's new album — which apparently the iTunes store in the U.K. is calling Black or White — and I can't help but feel like it's a return to Bibi's old style at Yuelin Culture. I wasn't the biggest fan of i, fish, light, mirror for several reasons: the Taipei makeover that I honestly think has a lot to do with homophobia since Bibi hasn't always been the most feminine of artists, the tone of the album itself is more pop-y and somewhat resembles something from the Japanese turnover rate of all these idol groups that keep coming out, but it seems as if Bibi was instructed to sing with a more feminine voice.
One of the reasons I love her music so much is because of that unique voice of hers. I immediately fell in love with it the first time I listened to "Your Love" from Time. That's possibly my favorite of her albums, but everything else before i, fish, light, mirror is in competition for that number-two spot.
I actually don't have as much of Stefanie Sun's discography — and most of it is older music — but whenever I'm in the mood for C-pop, these are the two artists I listen to the most. I also have a love for Twins, but I'm currently exploring Jay Chou, S.H.E., and Echo's discography.
How you want to be credited: Well, obviously I can't be credited for anything at the moment, but I'll let you know in the future.
Favorite furry mammal: Dogs, period... Okay, maybe it needs a more specific answer: German Shepherds.
Name/handle: Call me misfit, =)
Your level of Chinese: beginner/intermediate
Do you read Traditional or Simplified? Some of both
Favorite Chinese artists/styles: I like to try most anything, =]
How you want to be credited: misfitmisfit
Favorite furry mammal: umm, does koala count?
I saw lots of cool songs shared within this community, and I wanted to try my hand at sharing these two songs.
1)Aaron Yan - 忽然之间 (Hu Ran Zhi Jian) [Suddenly]
2)Afalean Lu - 可不可以愛我 (kěbù kěyǐ ài wǒ) [Can you love me?]
