siuyiu. I have many favourites too. So, I'm going to post one at a time. You can do so too. choose one and post first.
My first one. The melody is so so, but, I like the lyrics very much. Lam Jik chose to use Buddhist philosophy in the lyrics to match the theme of the series, and I appreciate that.
I'm trying to memorise this song now. The lyrics is very hard to remember because there are song many words in one line (and not simple words) and the tempo is very fast. One of the hardest song I've tried to memorise so far due to the difficult lyrics.
Demi God Semi Devil 97 themesong
難唸的經 "The Scripture that is Hard to Recite" 作詞：林夕 Lyricist: Albert Leung (Lam Jik) 作曲：周華健 Composer: Emil Chau 編曲：李庭匡 Arranger: Lee Ting Hong 主唱：周華健 Singer: Emil Chau
@caiyi the lyrics really do touch nicely on the spirit of wuxia, especially with regards to the brotherhood. the rap style is a bit weird when applied to the wuxia genre, but hey, must go with the times (i guess).
i was going through some of my other faves--will post later--and discovered that, unlike you, my love of a set of lyrics is quite dependent on the melody of the song! so, there could very well be a fantastic set of lyrics out there, but if the melody line is bad, i won't pay as close attention to the words.
the light barge traverses endless mountains
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
人生處處留情 留得點點薄倖名 未留名 未留姓 認得刀背淚影
人生處處留情 贏得點點淚未停 揮刀劍 斷盟約 刀鋒最是無情
無情刀 以死一拼 無緣份 悲痛莫名 情義是無形 為報恩只有負情
從今化做浮萍 寒星淒清傷孤影 分飛燕 恨流浪漢 焉知我是情聖
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.

siuyiu: atumiwa 青 is most commonly translated as "indigo" in english, to match the 7 colours of the rainbow that isaac newton insisted there (he did it for religious reason; those in the art world know there are 6 colours of the rainbow).

yenchin: Recently I was watching Archive 81, there was this scene where a character in a videofeed who suddenly extended her arm out of the screen to choke the guy watching it. It made me wondering: What would happen if the guy was trained in martial arts?

yenchin: A similar thought caught me when I was watching "Kingdom" which was about hordes of zombies in historical Korea. How would Guo Jing & Co. fare against a zombie horde instead of Mongolians? To add the fun, zombie Greats retaining their martial arts!

siuyiu: yenchin LOL you should re-write all storylines to be wuxia-compliant!

theresa: I have a sincerely good question related to this section of the forum, to which I plan on participating in: Regarding Wuxia art- can it be art based on actors/actresses who acted as the Wuxia movie/television show?
May 31, 2022 1:54:23 GMT
Admin: theresa : yes, it can be art based on actors/actressed who acted in wuxia theme

ethanrob: "The Return of the Condor Heroes" is really a classic. I like not only its manga but also the TV adaptation.

chefying: It is almost midnight where I am, and it is the 8th day of Chinese New Year. I hear fireworks everywhere, because people (especially those of FuJian descend) are celebrating the 9th day of CNY, a.k.a. Festival of the Jade Emperor.

atumiwa: any good wuxia film or drama?
May 10, 2023 5:24:29 GMT
Admin: atumiwa : recently there's a lot of xianxia drama on TV. the one with Luo Yunxi, Xiao Zhan. Both of them are quite popular. TBH that's not my cup of tea. I don't see anything good/interesting from the filmes.
