An old song from 2008 that is still so beautifully sad to listen to… The song was written especially for Aska by Ashin (阿信). Ashin is the vocalist of the Taiwanese band Mayday (五月天), who also recorded the song in 2013. Also in May, 2013, TF Family (TF家族, now known as TFBoys), a young boy band from Chongqing recorded the song on video, using the song to look for the mother of one of the band members, who abandoned him when he was very young, and the video went viral. Ashin saw the video and posted it on his facebook, and in 2019, invited Karry (王俊凱), one of the TFBoys members, to sing the song in one of their concerts.

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.

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)”.
