Light the Night 華燈初上 (Taiwanese Series OST)

Light the Night 華燈初上 is a new Taiwanese webdrama that premiered on November 26, 2021. It will consist of 3 seasons of 8 episodes each, so a total of 24 episodes. The first season of 8 episodes are now all available to stream online, the premiere date of the subsequent two seasons are yet to be confirmed.

The drama is set in the 1980s in Taiwan, so the OST has some cover songs from that era which was originally sung by the very popular Taiwanese singer, Teresa Teng 鄧麗君. One of her signature songs very well-known throughout the Chinese community around the world, The Moon Represents My Heart 月亮代表我的心, is now covered by Ashin 阿信 (vocalist of Mayday 五月天) as the opening theme song for the soundtrack!

Some of the songs have not been released yet, but I will update as they become available…

Update December 2, 2021: Here’s another song for the OST sung by JiaJia 家家, this is just a fan video recorded during the live performance on November 27, 2021, the MV is not available yet. The song was originally sung by 江蕾 in 1976 and later covered by Teresa Teng 鄧麗君 in 1979 (see below) which became the better known version, I’ve also included links to 2 other songs from the 1980s by Teresa that are being covered for the OST… Rainy Night Flower 雨夜花 was an old Taiwanese folk song first released in 1934. Just Like Your Tenderness 恰似你的溫柔 was originally sung by Tsai Chin 蔡琴 in 1981, this song was part of the Taiwanese Campus Folk Songs movement 台灣校園民歌 which was a very popular Mandarin pop musical genre from around the mid 1970s through to most of the 1980s.
