Song: 想太多 / xiǎng tài duō/ Think Too Much
Album: 想太多 / xiǎng tài duō / Think Too Much
Artist: 李玖哲 / lǐ jiǔ zhé / Nicky Lee
Release Date: October 16, 2007
Nicky Lee (李玖哲) is actually not from Taiwan, nor Malaysia, nor China. He’s actually a Korean-American, and is a relatively recent entry to the Chinese/Mandarin music stage. He first gained recognition for his album last year, “Baby Is Me” (Baby 是我), and appeared in many songs with other artists like Vivian Hsu’s “So-so” and 阿沁’s (Real of F.I.R.) “記得愛.” (Remembering Love) In these songs, he has shown he is indeed good at many different genres of music, and his new album “Think Too Much” is a good indicator of that. (Of course, the translation of 想太多 as “Think Too Much” is Chinglish at its best.)
While the later songs in the album are primarily R&B (including one featuring Vanness Wu, called 小胖子的一天 (Little Fatty’s Day), the first and title track is probably the most soulful song I’ve heard for some time. Viewers will notice the abnormal amount of violence in the music video – random slapping, kicking cakes, throwing dishes all over the place.
And unlike other songs, this is a song about past love not fulfilled, not current or future love. I find that also particularly hard to find in Chinese music, generally.
If anyone can identify the Korean actress in the music video, please let me know in the comments! Thanks!
妳笑著說 他是朋友 但妳眼中太溫柔
我的不安 那麼沉重 只有妳不懂
所以妳說 我們 不是妳和我
＊是我想太多 妳總這樣說 但妳卻沒有 真的心疼我
是我想太多 我也這樣說 這是唯一能 安慰我的理由
我想我沒有 錯怪了什麼 雖然妳不說 或許錯在我
