Jay Chou – Superman Can’t Fly Song with Chinese Lyrics

26 Apr

Hi all! Lately I’ve been on a J-pop splurge: I re-downloaded Namiesan’s stuff to my iPod (for a while I listened to her more than anyone else – I really like her stuff, although I’m not as fond as her most recent album) and listened to Angela Aki and YUI for the first time in a long time. This got me to post more about J-pop the last couple of days (this and the fact that a lot of Korean music shows are currently on hiatus).

So, why not also pay attention to some C-pop? I don’t listen to C-pop nearly as much as J-pop or K-pop. In fact I really only listen to 5 artists: Jolin Tsai, CoCo Lee, Stefanie Sun, Faye Wong and Fiona Sit. Everyone else is just a couple of songs here and there. I think it’s because C-pop is huge and I wouldn’t know where to start. However, one singer who I do like (but am in no way obsessed with) is Jay Chou. Jay Chou, for those that don’t know (as if no one knows who he is!), is the number 1 mega star in China. He sings, he writes and produces his music – he even produces and writes for other artists. He’s also turned his hand to acting (which can be seen in Curse of the Golden Flower).

He’s been on a somewhat long hiatus for an Asian singer. Jay is returning after a 2-year break inbetween albums. His new song is called ‘Chou Ren Bu Hai Fei’ which translates as Superman Can’t Fly. The lyrics remind me of a Sylvia Plath song but hehe. I’ll work on translating these into English tomorrow or today :)

媽媽說很多事別太計較 只是使命感找到了我 我睡不著
如果說罵人要有點技巧 我會加點旋律你會覺得 超屌
我的槍不會裝彈藥 所以放心不會有人倒
我拍青鋒俠不需要替身 因為自信是我繪畫的顏料

我做很多事背後的意義遠比你們想像
拍個電視劇為了友情與十年前的夢想
收視率再高也難抗衡我的偉大理想
因為我的人生我需再多一筆那獎項
我不知道何時變成了社會的那榜樣
被狗仔拍的那邊裝著要道歉的模樣 怎樣

我唱的歌詞要有點文化 因為隨時會被當教材
CNN能不能等英文好一點再訪 時代雜誌封面能不能重拍
隨時隨地注意形象 要控制飲食不然就跟杜莎夫人蠟像的我不像
好萊鎢的中國戲院地上有很多手印腳印 何時才能看見我的掌

喔如果超人會飛 那就讓我在空中停一停歇
再次俯瞰這個世界 會讓我覺得好一些
拯救地球好累 雖然有些疲憊但我還是會
不要問我哭過了沒 因為超人不能流眼淚

唱歌要拿最佳男歌手 拍電影也不能只拿個最佳新人
你不參加頒獎典禮就是沒禮貌 你去參加就是代表你很在乎
得獎時你感動落淚 人家就會覺得你誇張做作
你沒表情別人就會說太囂張
如果你天生這表情 那些人甚至會怪你媽媽
結果最後是別人在得獎 你也要給予充分的掌聲與微笑
開的車不能太好 住的樓不能太高
我到底是一個創作歌手還是好人好事代表
專輯一出就必須是冠軍 拍了電影就必須要大賣
只能說當超人真的好難

如果超人會飛 那就讓我在空中停一停歇
再次俯瞰這個世界 會讓我覺得好一些 oh
拯救地球好累 雖然有些疲憊但我還是會
不要問我哭過了沒 因為超人不能流眼淚

    Vincent Fang writes his lyrics not him, he does write a few but not all, most are from Fang
