30: 遙遠的她, my favorite Eason cover song

遙遠的她 – Distant Love (the Chinese pronoun 她 indicates a female love, not the neutral/male 他)

The original song was released in 1995 on Jacky 张学友’s Amour album.  It’s said that this is the song that “propelled him to superstardom”, and it’s definitely a staple in old-school Chinese pop. You can find this song on almost any karaoke machine in Asia.

Jacky’s still pretty good in concert, but his performance still doesn’t beat Eason’s, mostly because Eason’s performance is less Tom Jones In Vegas, and more modern.
