When Jay Chou's 1st album was out, I brought only the karaoke MTV VCD in 2001.
I like the songs in the 1st album very much but I never brought any of his CD later.
Now, I think back, I don't know why???
Maybe at that time, all I was listening to was probably only Elvis Presley, English and Japanese songs.
It was only until the mid of 2005, I started to buy all Jay Chou previous CD, VCD, DVD collections.
All because of one single song I've heard which I would rather not mentioned the song title now.
And from then on, I've continued to enjoying his 1 album per year released till now.
He is one unique artiste and very musically talent guy.
Jay breathe life into Chinese songs!
Any anyone likes his songs too? Which of his album is your favourite?
Do you like his rap songs or sentimental love songs?
For me, I would say I prefer listening to his love songs though some of which makes me real sad. But I would still listened to it over and over again!
As for some of his rapping songs, I do like some of them but I can't never managed to learn to sing it at KTV after all these years...aha...

His albums tends to have a lot of different variations cater to different people.
Just today, I've found his newly released album "Capricorn 魔杰座"to have 3 different packaging, here in Singapore.
One - Is a Metal box edition w/ DVD, stickers, poker card, inside is the long box edition.
2nd - Long Box edition w/ DVD, Pokercards
3rd - Regular sized CD album with no DVD or pokercards

Post Additions on 23 December 2009 :



Date : 22 December 2009, Tuesday
Location : Plaza Singapura, Singapore
Event Time : 7 pm

This is the first time I finally get to see Jay Chou in person.
He was at Plaza Singapore for promoting his new film - Treasure Hunter 刺陵
Released date for the film is on 31 December 2009.
Jay Chou arrived together with Li Chi-ling and director Chou Yin-Ping at approx. 7.40pm.
Jay spoke about the film, which I couldn't hear at all with all the fans screaming...
He then performed some magic card tricks which I couldn't really see from my view.
Anyway, they were all on stage for about 10 minutes only!!!

I was there standing since 5pm.
I've chosen a wrong spot to stand and only got myself to blame!
Was very annoyed with people pushing from behind.
There was a poor little girl standing beside me who was almost crushed like roti-prata by another girl behind here...
This is my first time seeing a movie promoting kind of event and probably my last time too...

i can see that you are a great fan of his, i want to check with you something, i pre-ordered his capricorn album. i just got the album, but the song title in the disc when i play it are all wrong although the song played is correct and it follows the sequence of the lyric book. do you have the same problem.?

astrogalaxy said...

Hi darkangel,
I've just checked my disc. There isn't any song title printed on my CD itself. I'm not sure if you are referring to playing the CD on computer. If yes, I also do have a problem when I play the CD on my computer, the title pop out in the computer screen are all wrong! All the song titles turns out to be from his older album...

DARKangel said...

ya..i'm referring to playing the cd on computer, what udid, did u went to exchange or u just change it manually?

astrogalaxy said...
