An Old Classic by the beautiful Michelle Hsieh 谢采妘.............

This beautiful song called Serenade of the Green Island or Green Island Serenade 绿 岛 小 夜 曲 have been done and redone by so many great Chinese singers, but by far Michelle Hsieh 谢采妘 version of this famous classic is one of the best to me.
Many Chinese people especially the older generation are familiar with this song....
I remember my dad playing it on his harmonica when we were kids and it just sounded so heavenly.

Beautiful oldies from Taiwan........

I just bought a Video CD of some classic old songs from Taiwan....... for some reason i am more drawn to these old songs, and veteran old singers like Fei Yu qing 费玉清, Teresa Teng 鄧麗君, Tsai Chin 蔡琴, Jenny Tseng, and Hong kong canto pop star Paula Tsui 徐小鳳.

Here are some of the songs on the VCD

And who can forget this classic by the one and only Fei Yu qing 费玉清....

These are songs that really can never get old, and it just brings back a lot of good memories.
