Faye Wong (王菲), in her March 4, 2011, concert in Hong Kong’s Asia World Expo, added a new song to her program, a cover of Eason Chan’s (陳奕迅) “Eyes Wide Shut” (大開眼界 (打回原形 aka “Their Colors”). For Fayenatics, this is a new, never-before-heard addition to Faye’s song list! The audio is a rip from the video. (The video was uploaded to YouTube by fayelink on Mar 4, 2011.)
UPDATE: Vikki, on March 4, 2011, said: “She did a cover of Eason Chan’s 大開眼界, which really opened all the eyes in the audience! So great to hear Faye sing in Cantonese after all these years… *faint*.”
Comment by Feifan: Vikki also posted a version of the YouTube video above in the comments section. She and I must’ve discovered the video at about the same time. Technically, she posted her comment 20 minutes before I published this article, but I didn’t see her comment until after I clicked on publish. My apologies, Vikki. If I’d seen your comment, I would’ve given you the credit you deserve for this.
P.S. From your comments, can we assume that you were actually in the audience? If you were, I’m totally green with envy! Some of the news articles reported that Faye was having a bit of trouble with the Cantonese songs but apparently no one minded and everyone was pleased that she made the effort for her Cantonese-speaking fans in HK.
