In late-May 2009, yk042 added to YouTube some priceless and rare Faye Wong (王菲) videos and songs. “Exhale” is a song I’ve never heard so it’s new for me. In the video, which is audio only, it’s followed by “Clearly My Heart,” a duet with Jacky Cheung. The year is 1992, and the performance is live. This is the year when Faye’s album, Coming Home, made her a star.
Previous videos of Faye performing “I Only Care About You” at Teresa Teng’s 1995 memorial have been poor. It was a shame because I think this is the only recording of Faye singing this song. It’s a heart-wrenching performance. One of my all-time favorites. Thus, when I found this version on YouTube with good quality video and audio, I was blown away.
yk042 uploaded other videos that I’ll be adding to this post in the next few days.
