We kick off KTV Wednesday this week with Wong Faye's Cantonese version of the popular Cranberries song Dreams. An amazing cover with fantastic lyrics, this song was featured in the 1994 film Chungking Express by Hong Kong director Wang Kar-wei. In part due to the popularity of the cover, Wang later released a mandarin version as well.
KTV Wednesday on Popup Cantonese is our regular music series highlighting great Cantonese music. Be sure to check out our text section for a manually annotated edition of the song lyrics - just roll your mouse over any word for a popup showing how to pronounce it along with its contextual meaning. Users in mainland China who have trouble viewing Youtube may want to check out this version on Youku.
