Listening to this song in February 2020. Another song that became very popular late last year on TikTok (抖音)… No official music video for the song as yet, only a version for KTV, which is the Karaoke version with lyrics. Will link the official music video if they release one in the future.

Most Popular Mandopop Music Videos (Part 1) YouTube 破億華語歌曲(一)

I can’t believe January 2020 is almost over, where has the time gone so quickly? I was going to do a post on most popular Chinese movie songs of the last decade since The Oscars is just around the corner, but as usual I got sidetracked while trying to compile a list, LOL. While doing some research, I came across a list of the Chinese songs that are the most watched music videos on YouTube. The list was for the Chinese songs that first hit 100 million views in the last ten years. So I thought, why not, and immediately abandoned my initial intention of just listing movie songs! This list is arranged by the first 20 Mandopop songs to achieve 100 million hits by timeline (that is when they first attended 100 million views), so they are not the on-going list of the current most watched music videos which will continue to change day by day.

The Sound of Falling Snow 雪落下的聲音(電視劇《延禧攻略》片尾曲)

This song is the closing credits song from the 2018 Chinese period TV drama Story of Yanxi Palace (延禧攻略). I have never watched the 70-episode series, so the first time I heard the song was from the third season of the reality singing show Sound of My Dream (夢想的聲音). I love the song, so I went and searched for the original track sang by L.T. (陸虎), and love that version too which fitted with the mood of the drama. If you have watched the episode of Sound of My Dream where J J Lin covered the song, you would have noticed he interpreted it differently. Well, that is because he was given the criteria which was to perform the song with a “dazzling, splendour, grandeur” arrangement (歌曲限定詞:金碧輝煌).

Grain in Ear 芒種 – Interesting 音闕詩聽 featuring Wimi 趙方婧

I have been listening to this song the past week, and it has quickly grown on me. It first caught my eyes due to its title, Grain in Ear (芒種), which is the 9th of the 24 solar terms in the Chinese lunar calendar created in ancient times to guide agricultural production. The arrival of Grain in Ear signifies the ripening of crops such as barley and wheat, and is a busy period for farmers.

This has to be the best music video from last year! I get teary eyes watching it every single time, as with most music videos from them… The actual title in Chinese is “in the blink of an eye (final chapter of an autobiography 2018)”.
