26.02.2009 | 音樂年代

我記得好細個嘅時候, 因為眾多兄姐嘅關係, 就開始聽時下流行歌曲.. 聽得比較多嘅係中文歌, 我嘅中文樂壇世界大致上可以分成四個年代, 你又屬於邊一個年代呢??

[黑膠唱片]
70年代中文樂壇應該係華語民歌稱霸囉, 當時屋企有舊好笨重嘅黑膠片唱機, 播嘅係相當純品嘅歌(好似冇乜情情塔塔架喎嗰時).. 有聽過劉文正, 鳳飛飛, 甄妮, 費玉清, 銀霞呢啲歌手嘛??

[盒式卡帶]
80年代轉聽香港樂壇流行曲, 記得家姐買咗部當時好流行嘅mini-compo唱機(因為可以放卡帶兼收聽電台), 因為攜帶方便, 每次去短途旅行帶住都相當架勢堂架.. 嗰陣時係聽邊個唱歌呢?? 咪就係譚詠麟, 張國榮, 梅艷芳, 陳百強囉..

[雷射光碟]
90年代繼續香港, 仍然係mini-compo當道(不過當然係進化到CD+卡帶+電台三合一啦).. 唔駛講, 大家都知呢個年代必定係四大天王同天后當道啦.. 呢個年代讀緊中學, 係成長年代, 當時中文樂壇可以話係百花齊放, 去到最鼎盛時期..

[下載音樂]
去到而家千禧年代, 隨著資訊科技嘅發達, 音樂就好似無邊界咁隨手可得.. 各式各樣嘅音樂格式同類型, 可以講係花多眼亂.. 就係因為咁, 我覺得而家新歌推出市場之快速, 係你拍馬都永遠冇可能追最得上架囉..
i remember i started to listen to pop songs since i was just a kid, thanks to my elder brothers and sisters for that.. more exposed to chinese music, i can roughly categorise the industry into the following four era.. which one did you belong to??

[vinyl]
mandarin folk songs can be regarded as the main stream for the chinese music industry in the 70s, i still remember we had a white-elephant vinyl player at home, playing songs that were quite innocent (i mean back then the songs were all meant be bring simple message).. anyway, have you ever heard of singers like Liu Wen Zheng, Feng Fei Fei, Zhen Ni, Fei Yu Qing, Yin Xia?? haha..

[cassette]
switched to listening to HK cantonese music in the 80s, i remember my sister bought a mini-compo player, which was quite an innovative product back then, so-called because it plays both cassette and radio.. because of the mobility, we sometimes bring it along for short trips and actually caught the eyes of many passer-by.. and guess who did we listen to back then?? undoubtedly Alan Tam, Leslie Cheung, Anita Mui, Danny Chan..

[compact disc]
still HK cantonese music in the 90s, still that trendy mini-compo player (but of course more evolved to be 3-in-1 CD+cassette+radio player), needless to say the industry was totally anchored by the Heavenly Kings and Heavenly Queens.. was in high school back then, the years of growing up, i remember the music industry was just so rich and i supposed at it's peak..

[downloads]
come to the 21st century, and thank to the advancing information technology, songs are just everywhere at your fingertips, unlimited and boundary-less, you can get music in any format and any genre you like.. and because of this, i think the rate of new songs being released to the market, is far higher than the speed you can digest a song, you just cannot catch up with it no matter how..

  2. Wow you so creative to think so detailed. I realized you missed those twist and A-GoGo pop music eras. Earlier version was Redifussion box during the vinyl time. I wonder what has happened to Liu Wen Zeng now? Any idea Thamby? I thought you should be hearing Tamil & Hindi classics too.

    Chris:

    Twilight Zone:
