留住今日情 - 張德蘭 Savour This Romance, sung by Teresa Cheung 作詞：鄧偉雄 lyrics: tang wai hung 作曲：顧嘉煇 composer: joseph koo
Just finish listen to this song. Never realise this lyrics is so beautiful before.
for ROCH, i've always preferred the subthemes to the main theme.
i haven't read the lyrics in a while--when i was looking over them, i realized that they're from XLN's POV! even despite being in love and giving into that emotion (when she was taught to keep all emotions at arm's length), she's still much more nonchalant about it. YG never could rein in his emotions, which is why the poison from that flower affected him so badly. XLN is probably one of the only who could probably withstand the effects of the poisonous flower; even clever HR would've suffered. i think yideng and his martial brother would be the other exceptions.
ok, here is lo kwok tsim at his most story-specific (well, one very well known example):
themesong and subtheme to dagger li 1978 (same melody--and look how the lyrics complement each other to tell li xunhuan's story!):
小李飛刀 - 羅文 Dagger Li, sung by Roman Tam 曲︰顧嘉輝 composed by Joseph Koo 詞︰盧國沾 lyrics by Lo Kwok Tsim
刀光淚影 - 羅文 blade's light, tear's reflection; sung by Roman Tam 曲︰顧嘉輝 composer: Joseph Koo 詞︰盧國沾 lyricist: Lo Kwok Tsim
Interesting. I've never heard of the subtheme version of the lyrics. Need to study the lyrics more to see how it complements the themesong. I felt that the lyrics of the themesong already encompass all. The subtheme get into the details with the line 為報恩只有負情. But, overall I felt that the lyrics of the themesong is more well written.
yes, agree that the themesong is better written--i guess that's why it was chosen! the subtheme, like most of them, IS more detailed and more "intimate", focussing more on the "inner" world for LXH. but i feel it nicely complements the "outer" world of the theme because it better explains the other bits of LXH's life and consequences therein. fate may have dealt him a bad card, but he did make certain decisions that led him down the path he's on--he wasn't completely out of control of his life earlier on.

When I watch DOMD 98, I don't care one bit about the themesong (but listening to it again a decade later, I kinda like its cute music), . But, every time I heard this song at the end of an episode, I was touched by it. It's so sad. My heart ached for the young Emperor and the lost friendship between him and Wei Xiao Bao. I love both lyrics and melody. The lyrics accurately reflect Kangxi's feeling, and Steven Ma, who played Kangxi, sang it well.
Duke of Mount Deer 98 subtheme song
頭頂一片天 "The Piece of Sky Above My Head" 作詞：黃沾 Lyricist: James Wong 作曲：顧嘉輝 Composer: Joseph Koo 編曲：顧嘉輝 Arranger: Joseph Koo 主唱：馬浚偉 Singer: Steven Ma
OT a bit. I don't care that everyone likes Andy Lau's version and that Wallace Chung is hot, but, imho, the best DOMD Kangxi is Steven Ma. He has the ancient person (古代人) look and at the time he played the character, he still looks very young (believable as a teenage king). I don't know why people said his acting is poor in that series. I think he acted well.
@caiyi i agree that steven ma doesn't get enough credit for his acting, in general. i actually think both steven and jordan did excellently--jordan is definitely my preferred WXB. i was surprised that i liked wallace chung--didn't know him as an actor, and he, too, brings a gravitas to the role that andy lau didn't have, IMO. the WXB role got modified for both huang xiaoming and tony leung, to better suit their acting, but in the process, WXB is no longer canon WXB. it's very shallow to say this, but the mainland version of DOMD had the prettiest girls; tvb actresses are such divas when it comes to bit parts, and the tvb "ah ke"s are soooooo not up to par.
siuyiu: @all i know the spamming is out of control--i've emailed our admin. hope she replies soon! meanwhile, for those who are able, click on the spam threads and in the "settings", see if you can click "report this". that should at least alert the server.

Admin: hi guys! I'm adding a new section on the forum. Since so many of good ancient costume series appear in the market, like Nirvana in Fire, etc. A bit touch of wuxia, but not really wuxia. Some are historical fictions with a touch of wuxia,
