chinese music for study and pleasure
I've started a blog where I'm sharing some out-of-print reissues from Hong Kong of some old shidaiqu (時代曲)/ mando-pop songs from the 1930s-1960s. I've found them a pretty good way to memorize vocabulary and an enjoyable way to listen to the spoken language.
I'm scanning the booklets also, so you'll have the lyrics, and about once a week I'm going to post translations and notes for a song.
anyone is free to come by and try it out- there's absolutely no charge and no hoops to jump through. bear in mind that i've JUST started it, so there's not a ton of content yet, but if you check it once a week or so, there should be a steady stream of new stuff.
also- if anyone want's to offer their own translations of songs, I'd gladly accept submissions and give credit where credit is due.
New lesson idea? Please contact us.
