What tug old memories more than a tune? Whenever I stumble onto an old drama’s opening song, it brings back SO MANY memories. Hi, nostalgia.
I am sure these are collective memories of a lot of us who grew up with TVB. Pieces of our childhood.These songs always ignite an urge in me to go scour for these dramas and rewatch them. Good times, good times.
THIS RIGHT HERE, Journey to the West is the very definition of my childhood. The hours I’ve spent with my sibling watching and rewatching it through out the years of my childhood…and older.
C’mon, if you were at least 1 year old when A Kindred Spirited started in 1995, you would remember this song that played for the 4 years of the drama’s lifespan.
The song is like the trademark for Triumph in the Skies. I don’t know if they can recreate such a song for the sequel.
Eason Chan‘s lovely voice again. There were many many TVB cop-centered series I’ve watched as a child, but for some reason this one stuck with me sentimentally. Anddddd, there was a time, back in the days when “Ah Wong” and “Lo Por Jai” were..siblings =P
Possibly Raymond Lam‘s first leading role. Hey, I liked him way before the hype..but then I remained indifferent about him until Mysteries of Love. I have this thing for girl-crossing-dramas, this was my first and one of my favorites (the other being the Korean You’re Beautiful).
I am sure there are many more I didn’t mention perhaps I can add them as I recall more later on.
Also note that those were the days before all the TVB theme songs are invaded by TVB artists and The Voice (ex)contestants (ugh, they are EVERYWHERE, a girl can’t watch TVB anything without The Voice popping in my face). C’mon TVB, stop being cheap and actually go get singers to sing your songs again!
