The 3rd OST of Chor Lau Heung 1984 (!!)

Okay folks, remember back in October 2015 (yes, last year) when I had the opening and closing themes of Chor Lau Heung 1984 translated? Back then, I already realised the presence of the third OST, which seemed to be sung by Liza Wang only (cos it was a female voice, and Liza was the singer for the CLH 1984 OSTs). Although I couldn't find the third track, I did note that some episodes ended with the third track (particularly Ep 30 where Daddy Emperor teased his cute daughter re: Chor tai-gor). But I almost gave up on finding the third track, cos it was so long ago, and in those days tracks were not preserved as well as during the internet era.

Then today I was sleuthing the net for the CLH 1979 track. Yes, the Adam Cheng version, cos it was definitely a cool track (one day I will make a CLH 1984 MV with the 1979 OST). Then...lo and behold, I landed on SPC Forum where the link to the third CLH 1984 track has been there since 2010! Palm/face... 

Hence, as you can see above, I herewith present you with the third OST of The New Adventures of Chor Lau Heung 1984 performed by the amazing Liza Wang. Title is 情到濃時休說痴  and I have no idea what it means. I will ask my Chinese friends to translate the lyrics for me, then I will make another CLH MV with this song.

Oh, and there's a slight problem. The YouTube video is 3:10 long... but it ended abruptly. I have asked the original poster if he/she could post the song in its entirety, but I'm not sure if that's possible. Then I sleuthed again and found the longer version 4:10 min at Tudou... but alas, that version was also not cleanly finished.

(someone uploaded the Tudou version to YouTube on 18 April 2016, so I can post it here!)

At any rate, do me a favour: tell me which version you like better, the 3 min YouTube or the 4 min Tudou version. I personally want a longer track, but the 3 min version seems to have a cleaner finish, though by no means it was totally finished. Since I need to know the meaning of the song first before making the MV, I don't know if I can finish this MV by the weekend (I'm off for a week this weekend for a holiday). I will try my best, though!

Edit 15 April 2016: Have uploaded the MV and the lyric translation here

Well, I don't have time to completely read this blog right now but definitely love it so far. Just a question though, if you're still active on this. I've been trying to find the song that plays at the very end of the drama. Would you happen to know where to direct me?

Hi Silkk,

I'm still very much active, trying to post once a week or once a fortnight.


The above has the ending theme of CLH 84. Also, the post below has the iTunes list of 1980s jianghu OSTs, including CLH 1984.


The name of the song is Sword Tenderness 劍胆柔情 by Roman Tam and Liza Wang.
