I was amused when I found out that Steven and Susanna sang 樓台會 as one of their Sunday Songbird duets. Incidentally,Susanna and the late Roman Tam (Lo Man) were the original singers of that song, which is in fact a subsong in the TVB adaptation of the Chinese classic《梁山伯與祝英台 - Butterfly Lovers》 . Although I've not watched that series, I recognized the song as I did for many of TVB classic theme songs - courtesy of my parents' tvb theme songs cassettes and cds. haha! I really enjoyed listening to old TVB classic theme songs, especially the wuxia's. Anyway, I checked out Sunday Songbird episode 1 yesterday, and sure enough, I recognized all of the songs sang though I've not watched any of the series. Adam looked so suave and debonair then. But...but the invited guests only sang and did not get to say anything at all. So, Steven and Susanna would just sing and get off the stage when done?
Incidentally, Ivy Ling and Betty Loh Ti's classic《梁山伯與祝英台》movie is my mother's absolute favorite movie, and surprisingly I love it too. I also enjoy listening to the Chinese opera Butterfly Lovers "化蝶" played on traditional Chinese musical instruments, and it was simply heavenly when ex-Chinese female figure skater, Chen Lu, skated to that piece of music.
