Lyrics for 如果没有你, a song I first heard Jam Hsiao 萧敬腾 sang but the original singer was Karen Mok 莫文蔚.
Jam Hsiao has a new album out called Love Moments.
It is a collection of songs originally sang by famous female singers. Singapore’s Stephanie Sun and Tanya Chua made the list. Yeah!
It is interesting to see a young male singer cutting an album of songs made famous by leading female artistes. Some of the songs are clearly meant to be sung by ladies. But Hsiao’s rendition is so good that I forgot all about that and just enjoyed the auditory experience.
I like all the songs but this particular one stuck in my head and I find myself humming it as I work. It is 如果没有你 (ru guo mei you ni or literally, If You Weren’t There) originally sung by Karen Mok 莫文蔚 (Mo Wen Wei).
The music is by 左安安 (Zuo An An) and lyrics by 李焯雄 (Li Zuo Xiong)
I didn’t know about this song because I am not a Karen Mok fan and I have never heard it over the radio. It is a very soothing song. The lyrics of 如果没有你 is a little sad but not depressing. A sort of longing, missing someone.
I’ll probably play it on a lazy afternoon when I am pottering around the house.
Here’s a video of the song by Jam Hsiao:
Lyrics for 如果没有你
Hey! I found the rendition by the original singer, Karen Mok.
I like both renditions. How about you?
