Well, David talked his favourite artist Zaza Miminoshvili sometime ago. Yesterday, my roommates played a lot of music, many of them were rock music. They played the music by Slash, Gary Moore, Enigma, Atas, etc. Frankly speaking, I haven’t heard of any of them before. But this remind me of the Cantonese band, Beyond.

Beyond was consisted of four memebers when they were in the peak. Among them was the vocal and guitarist, Wong Ka Kui. Most of the time, the band compose the music, write the lyrics, and perform it themselves. In the pop music in Hong Kong, there is only one theme, love affairs between boy and girl. The themes of Beyond, however, is much more diversified and meaningful. For example, one is about parent’s love and one is about peace. Their most famous song, Boundless Oceans Vast Skies, is about some guy goes to a distant place to pursue his ideal. He insists to pursue his dream even he is laughed at by other people. I feel resonated as I am in a situation depicted in the lyrics.

The major player Wong Ka Kui fell out of the stage when he was performing in Japan, and he died because of the severe head injury. After Ka Kui died, the band was not so active any more. But the songs they sang in the past become classic now. Although he has left us, his songs will be played forever.
