Faye Wong’s (王菲) “Love Commandments” was first released in Chang You in Oct 1998. It is the Cantonese version of “Forbidden Love,” and it appears as track 3 on the second of the two-disc set.
The remix of “Love Commandments” (the first audio below) was done by C.Y. Kong, the arranger and composer who worked with Faye on many of her greatest hits. To my knowledge, this remix was never officially released. What makes it interesting and rare is that it uses the arrangement from the Mandarin version, “Forbidden Love” (the third audio below), instead of the more familiar arrangement (the second audio below) in the two-disc set. According to C.Y., the remix is slightly different, and the guitars were played by Joey Tang. Joey’s arguably the hottest rock guitarist in China. You can see and hear him in Faye’s 2003 concert video, for example, in the opening song, “Sky.”
