Here’s a rare song and video from 1993 — Faye Wong with the Hong Kong rap duo, Softhard. Faye guest-starred in their popular TVB variety show. The guys, Jan Lamb (DJ Soft) and Eric Kot (MC H), collaborated with Faye on a couple of songs, and this is one of them, “Don’t Be Excused” (請勿客氣). The show comes in five video segments, and the song appears in the fourth (00:39-02:43). The audio below was ripped from the video. I really like this song. It demonstrates Faye’s range across genres and, in this song especially, the power of her voice. It’s still very early in her career, yet she’s already treated as a major star.
The videos were added to YouTube by Singsingcookie1 in May 2008. Faye appears in parts of all five. In the first, she is introduced. In the second, she plays pool with the guys. This segment is funny. She doesn’t do much in the third. The song is performed in the fourth. To see it, click on the video below. The fifth segment is the last, and the show closes with Faye’s “Fragile Woman.”
