《嚣张》
作词:周耀辉

推荐理由:歌词言简意赅,表达特立独行的态度和自洽而活的主张。像鲸鱼像白蛇像美好的兽,永远做自由而嚣张的自己。

Song: ’Arrogant’
Songwriter: Chow Yiu Fai
Singer: Ellen Joyce Loo

Why: The lyrics are short, but comprehensive that can express and inspire the unique attitudes and lively ideas to become a free and confident person.

《以父之名》
作词:黄俊郎
演唱:周杰伦

推荐理由:通常祷告是为了赎罪,但此处将“脆弱”和“祷告”两个不是同一纬度的概念结合,巧妙传递出荣耀背后常常充满孤独的话题。

Song: ’In the name of the father’
Songwriter: Huang Junlang
Singer: Jay Chou

Why: The song describes beautifully the loneliness you can face even in moments of glory, when you seem to have everything. It is in those moments you are most fragile and uncertain.

《消愁》
作词:毛不易
演唱:毛不易

推荐理由:语言很诗意,感情层层递进。面对世界的残酷,歌词自有主张:自嘲又奋进,悲伤又积极。所以杯杯都敬给那些背井离乡逆风而翔的年轻人们吧。

Song: ’Get rid of sorrow’
Songwriter: Mao Buyi
Singer: Mao Buyi

Why: The language is poetic and explains how emotions are constantly challenged when facing the cruelty and difficulties of the outside world. How will you feel when leaving your hometown? Modest or striving, sad or positive? Bless the young people facing the unknown.

《父亲写的散文诗》
作词:董玉方 
演唱:许飞 
推荐理由:歌词朴实无华,却挑动了每个人心头那根柔软的弦,把人拉进了一个故事里,想起自己跟父亲的独家回忆。真实又动情的旋律,唤醒了原始情感。

Song: ’A poem written by father’
Songwriter: Dong Yufang
Singer: Xu Fei

Why: The lyrics are simple and plain, but finds the right words to describe the special relationship with one’s father. The song can strike everyone’s soft heartstrings, and immerse them into a story that awakens their personal and perhaps forgotten memories of their father.
