Anaesthesia Remix – Rare Bonus Track from Japan Release

Here’s a rare remix of Faye Wong’s (王菲) “Anaesthesia,” which was included as a bonus track in the Japan release of Scenic Tour (Chang You, Oct. 1998). The original version appeared in Faye Wong 1997 (Sep. 1997), which was Faye’s first EMI album. It was added to YouTube by wanderlustliu on 3 Oct. 2009. The audio below was ripped from the video.

Dancing Queen Video – Complete

This is the full-blown Dancing  Queen (飛躍舞台) live TV performance with Faye Wong (王菲), Sally Yeh (葉蒨文), and Sandy Lam (林憶蓮), in Taiwan (台慶),  1993. It was added to YouTube by imchi001 on 17 July 2009. The video quality is excellent, but the audio is slightly out of synch. The version in the recently released “The True Story of Faye Wong” inexplicably omits Sandy.

Here are the songs:
Faye Wong (王菲) – Flow Not Fly (流非飛)
Sally Yeh (葉蒨文) – Tilt (傾斜)
Sandy Lam (林憶蓮) – No Longer Frivolous (不再兒嬉)
Faye Wong – Shock (震撼)
Sally Yeh – Possessed by the Devil (走火入魔)
Sandy Lam – Day the Earth Large (天大地大)
Faye Wong – Heart of the Sun (心裡的陽光)
Sally Yeh – Summer of Love
Sandy Lam – The Letter Itself, chorus (信自己, 合唱)

yk042 – Rare Video of Faye Performing ‘Everything’ in 1990

This is a rare video of Faye Wong (王菲) performing “Everything” in 1990 for a live TV audience. This is the title song from the album, which was released in June 1990. This was her second album. It was added to YouTube by yk042 (yan kiat) on 28 July 2009. yk042 uploaded it in two separate segments. I joined them, but in the process found a glitch toward the end of the first that broke the continuity. I edited out the glitch but you can still see a slight break in the flow. We thank yan kiat for another fabulous upload, and we join him/her in thanking the FMF forum for making this video available to all Faye fans.

Faye looks so young in this video. She was 20 or just turned 21. You can hear fans yelling her name, “Wong Jing Man!” At this early stage in her career, her manager and advisors had no idea how to “market” her. They were trying to exploit her beauty by presenting her as a sultry, sexy femme fatale. She had the looks and style to pull it off, but you can see that this just wasn’t Faye. After her third album, You’re the Only One, just six months later in December 1990, she decided to take a break from her career and left for New York toward the end of 1991, where she took some music classes.

As it turns out, this was a much needed opportunity for her to rethink her image and goals. After returning, she recorded and released Coming Home in August 1992, the breakthrough album that gave us a different Faye, a performer who has decided to do things her way or not at all. Fully in charge of her own career, Faye began making her own decisions, and the rest is history.

yk042 – Faye Wong and Chang Fei

In the first video, we have Faye Wong (王菲) with host Chang Fei (张菲) in a live 1994 TV performance in Taiwan. In this rare video, we see Faye dancing to “Flow Not Fly” (from Hundred Thousand Whys, Sep 1993). In the second, we have the two again reuniting ten years later, at the 2004 Golden Melody Awards in Taiwan. Both videos were added to YouTube by yk042 on 5 June 2009.


I think most of us are familiar with the second video, but the quality of this version is exceptional.

Thanks, yk042!

Faye’s 1992 MV – Miss You Night and Day

Here’s an original MV of Faye Wong (王菲) singing “Miss You Night and Day” from Coming Home, released in August 1992. It was added to YouTube by lzwyuse today, 22 April 2009. This was Faye’s breakaway album, and the songs that we hear about most are “Fragile Woman” and “Kisses in the Wind.” Other great songs in this album are “Romantic Storm” and “Blind Date.” This was still very early in her career, but we can already see the beauty, style, and amazing talent that separates Faye from all other entertainers.

Perth Tour Music Special 1993 – Faye & Tony

The Perth Tour Music Special 1993 stars Faye Wong (王菲) and Tony Leung Chiu-Wai (梁朝偉). It was uploaded in 6 parts to YouTube by Singsingcookie4 on 21 Feb 2009. This version has the best resolution that I’ve seen. In this special, we see Tony and Faye before they starred together in the Wong Kar-wai (王家衛) classic Chungking Express. This is a romantic comedy that features a few of Faye’s songs. Makes you wish that Faye would do a romantic musical comedy in which she sings some of her songs.

I am so HAPPY that this has been posted because I’m from Perth!! I’ve been here since ‘89, so I’m pretty much from here. I recognise everywhere they show, some of the places don’t even exist anymore. I didn’t really know Faye back in 1993, my first hearing of our 100,000 Whys album was in 1994. But I do remember watching this on VHS back in the day. This was when Faye’s career was taking off and Tony was trying to start a singing career (god knows why?!?!).

This really shows why Faye and Tony have done so much acting together. Tony is an acting veteran and its obvious Faye is very comfortable with Tony and he must have taken good care of her and taught her his craft.

Word of advice – never feed the black swans! They are vicious when it comes to food!! We do have great coffee, we take it very seriously, mainly due to a large italian population, there is NO Starbucks here!

Faye living in a caravan?!?! ahahaha, that’s too funny! Meat pie for brekky? She’s definitely an Aussie!

This makes me feel very close to Faye – she was in my town! If only I met her! Wonder if she liked Perth, it was pretty undeveloped back then, so it wouldn’t have been very exciting at the time. I coulda been a very good tour guide for them even tho I was only 14!

See ya later, mate!
