23: “給愛麗絲” an Eason song I’m (kind of) embarrassed to admit I like

This song never fails to make me smile. I mean, the video is adorably, shamelessly goofy, like the song. It’s from Eason’s most energetic, optimistic, and outgoing period of work, and, of course, in Cantonese.

But when viewed through a Western lens, it’s like, How can this guy be a serious singer. Like when people start watching Kpop and ask “if they’re even men”. I have forgotten the first-glance feelings I felt watching these kinds of videos, this kind of “less-masculine” kind of entertainment.

Cultural issues aside, I tend to favor more heartstring-type-stuff (in case you hadn’t noticed) and this song is just…ZANY. But it makes me happy to hear it, and it’s obviously meant to, so while I’m ridiculously embarrassed to know all the words, I also can’t help myself when the song comes on.
